Lately I’ve been riffing on the guitar for my 9 month old daughter, Olivia, every night. Today I decided to take a moment and do a quick recording and bounce of some of the tunes I’ve been riffing on. We’ve been playing it for Olivia and so far she’s been sleeping sounder than ever before! Fingers crossed, maybe this will make life easier and happier for us all.
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.
There’s no sound quite like the beautiful and haunting voice of “The Professor”, Harrison Stafford. From the moment we first recorded the instrumentals with the flowing piano and the intermittent jungle breaks, we knew that we had to get Harrison in on this.
