in full view of the boathouse - live improv

track: 06

recorded: 20160124

duration: 7:45

the second and final track of the day was a bit of a rougher ride, I had some issues with the interface, which I have found, occasionally likes to flip 180 degrees for no apparent reason - which looks a bit odd when you are trying to record a video!

however, I persevered, and the track came out so well, that I just ignored the video difficulties - and let the music speak for itself. a little bit unstable, a bit more ominous, this track has all the hallmarks of a VOSIS classic - dark, dark ambient of the darkest kind, threatening rhythms, the sound of a squashed synth bass of some description, struggling to get out - it's dark and it throbs with sinister, pulsing, musical life.

I really love this app, and I could literally sit and play with it all day, but in this case, I was very happy with the results, and I am very happy with the two live improvs that emerged from VOSIS on this day - it was a very good session indeed, and this app is just pure genius - drive your audio based on the difference between light and dark tones in a scanned image...why not?

I don't really mind how they do it, I just know that the sound that comes out of it, is out of this world - and that's the way I like it. VOSIS at it's very best.
