On December 2nd, 2011, I became a father. Knowing that life was soon going to be dominated by this beautiful and strange alien being, Rob and I spent some extra time in 2011 partying and playing tunes. In particular, in 2011, Deepfried switched technologies and adopted Ableton Live in place of their home brewed sound blending software, the MAX/MSP cuisNart.
After some tweaking and adjusting, tethering foot peddles and ipads to the computer, we reached a new plateau of sound composition. The results are reflective of the process: a flowing, intuitive, rhythmic journey. Often starting with a guitar loop, and evolving into a rich composition, Deepfried songs blend various live instruments and custom beats with a dash of home brewed artificial intelligence.
We’ve got an entry in the Radiolab Remix competition. We would LOVE it if you would vote for us and get your friends to vote for us. We think Radiolab is the coolest thing since the Mini Moog and would love nothing more than to win a trip to meet Jad and Robert and tour their studio.
After playing Mikael’s wedding this weekend, I had a delightful little solo session resulting in this mix. Mostly it’s all about the dubstep bass line and the ipad controlled filters and reverb. I’m hoping to put together a video of how that works soon. In the mean time, check this out!
