[b]HALLOWEEN IN OUTER SPACE[b/]

***Original Track by Buddha Bomb Released on October 31, 2009***

Buddha Bomb created all sounds with an Access Virus T-1 Polar Synthesizer, which he sequenced and layered with voice samples using Abelton LIVE. The result is a compelling, and at times scary piece of "music" - ha ha!




Buddha Bomb Original Music
I recently finished a 10-week course at Denver University in Digital Audio Production with professor Brian Comerford.

Here is the web-site which is a wonderful resource, full of all kinds of useful information about electronic music.

The course included readings on the history of electronic music, and we were required to write five response papers to the readings. I found that writing the papers was the best way to actually learn and remember the material. Plus, it was fun writing the papers.

During the class, I created eight new tracks, all of them are listed below. I added a bonus track "Scary Walter" which was a sound-collage I had done for Halloween last year.

We learned three software programs during the class: 1) SoundForge for editing; 2) Acid for track arrangements and 3) Absinthe3 to generate original synthesizer sounds.

I created the music tracks using four primary methods: 1) Sound-Collages; 2) Remixes; 3) Original-Music; and 4) combinations of the first three.

We began by creating a Sound-Collage, from a minimum of 15 sources. Then we remixed another studen'ts Sound-Collage. The next project involved creating orginal synthesizer music using Acid.

The culmination of the class was to create a demo cd and a web-site. I will mail anyone a cd who sends me your mailing address. Send it to me directly at bb@buddhabomb.net

Peace,

Buddha Bomb




"Bong-a-Thon"
Click here to download this mix

Our first audio assignment was to create a sound collage, using at least 15 different sources. I chose a psychedelic theme and lifted samples from both old-school techno, and modern psytrance tracks.

The track begins and ends with a group of stoners hitting the bong and laughing, I never get tired of hearing this part. Then I pull one musical surprise after the other, adding samples from Dr. Albert Hoffman, Terrance McKenna and others. Bong-a-Thon culminates with high-paced psytrance music.

To make this collage, I first created numerous files with all the samples and music. I began to cut-and-paste these together using the SoundForge editor. Although I had used the program before, these sessions increased my abilities to use SoundForge.

Our second assignment "Seed01" was to do a remix of another student's sound-collage. I was given a challenging track developed by Brian Comerford called "Psy Phy Nutrino Flux" which contained samples with a UFO landing theme.

I broke up the track and created dozens of files using SoundForge. We had been given a primer on how to layout a track in Acid. I made a rather strange arrangement, but I also learned the basics of Acid.




"Drum'n'Space (Original)"

This was our Softsynth project, and I used Absinthe3 to generate the sounds. I spent many hours just playing with Absinthe3, and found that making "sound scapes" were easy. However, beats were not so easy. I ended up having fun with Drum'n'Bass sounds. I was able to edit the beats in Soundforge, and spiced them up. I layed out the track using Acid.

This was my very first all original track!




"Toby Rumans Dream Theater Meets Tiesto (Remix)"

Our next assignment "Seed02" was to remix another students work. But this time, we could add additional sounds, so this project was both a remix and a sound collage work.

There were many cool sounds from Toby's track, including far out guitar samples. I added some pystrance teasers by playing the build-ups and then dropping it back down again. This track was made primarily with SoundForge.




"Habitail 5 Easy Steps (Remix)"

Our assignment was to create a 1-minute political track. I decided to remix Habitrail's "5 Easy Steps" from the album "Polyphonic Voices of Digital Desent". The original track was a powerful statement about the Bush administration with cut-up quotes.

To spice up the track, I began with a sample by Noam Chompsky followed by a George Carlin laugher. Then it hits hard with Bush samples.

The assigment was to make a 1-minute political track, I did my best to deliver the most powerful portions of Habitrail's excellent work.




"e23 PsyPhyNutrinoFlux (Supernatural Remix)"

The Seed03 project was for extra credit. I decided to do another remix/sound-collage combo, and I got carried just a little but away, certainly it was great fun! Going along with e23's psi-fi motiff, I added many far-out samples, mostly from psytrance tracks. I created this track using Sound-Forge and Acid.




"666 (Sound-Collage)"

I created this track for extra-extra credit, using mostly SoundForge to create a collage. For sources, I used several scary sound effects albums, samples from psytrance tracks, and just for fun the theme song from jaws.




"Protons, Neutrons, and Elections (Original-Sound-Collage)

This was a "folder of mystery" track. I was given a folder, complete with drum-beats, voice-samples, and other sounds by the professor. I used Acid to layout the data into a sequencer, and that's all I used to creat this track. I loved doing this particular project, though I must say the folder had excellent material to work with.
