headcleaner film soundtrack

11 12 2011

this is rob blakes entry for the film competition run by trinity leeds and left eye blind. there was 2 days given to make a 5 minute film fom start toi finish. i was given the idea – a man is alone on a spaceship which is broken down, spinning off to his inevitable death – and asked to make a soundtrack and some background sounds. a great project to be involved with an i also built the set. it was a crazy couple of days, the final edit had to chopped right down to the 5 mins that was allowed, which is a shame. there will be a longer edit eventually as it could easily be 10 maybe 15 mins to really get the feeling of isolation – this will have some other sections of music i wrote in it also and ill post that when it comes, but for now this is the film in its competition form:

please ‘like’ it on facebook as theres a people favourite prize up for grabs too as well as the main prize to have the film shown across the country as a short before the main feature at everyman cinemas.

in the coming months im going to be working with rob and the rest of the crew on some other shorts, we’re planning (rather ambitiously) to build a full scale stylised town centre in a warehouse, growing the set with each film – an ill be doing the soundtracks and incidental sound, set making an a bit of acting too.

rave factory round 5 !!

14 11 2011

well i got through!!

good job too cos “hard as nails” – being the title of the round – i can do!

the tune ive done is experimental hardcore if i were to give it a genre – its got the 3 over 8 time structure, noise, distortion, awkwardness and harsh vocal, speeding up,  a kind of mindless, relentless, madness ….yes – hard as nails

vote here:

kurden gesn

dont know if theres another round so please vote!!!





live set drop box!!

27 10 2011

just got back from playing in brussels @ cafe central, great gig with a bunch of folk on various modular setups, great atmosphere…

so i recorded my live set and realised i need somewhere to put these things, ill add extras is i go along and put them in the audio section.

so dropbox links it is.

this is my set fom cafe central

this is a demo i did for plex    im putting this up primarily as its a different kind of set, less banging mainly!!





rave factory d’n’b round

22 10 2011

ok so i realised quite quickly that d’n’b is impossible on an 8 step sequencer – so from then i went on a journey into what i thought was a bit like the essence of liquid d’n’b….or something…struggled ill say, nearly got on a chase and status singing vibe but listening back got the better of me. this isnt d’n’b basically, not at all really. the judges comments said as much. but….it is a nice tune, just not d’n’b

anyway my “d’n’b” entry is:

 

baudein

its knock out time in the competition now too so this may be the end of the road!!!

next round is (thankfully) ‘hard as nails’ though – something that i can do!! just played at tinnitus in sheffield tonight – maybe put a chunk of that set up as the tune……..





urban exploration live video

27 09 2011

audio – live from bridgnorth festival. video by micoland.





bridgnorth festival interview

21 09 2011

interview by local internet station for the bridgnorth festival. they interviwed me about my set but put an old urban exploration (not all of us jamming) tune on the video and reckoned the interview was about urban exploration. which it was supposed to be, but wasnt cos they kept asking about my kit. the guy loves synths though, think that was the problem, gear lust got in the way of good reporting!!

 

 

there will be some of the set being put up on soundcloud soon, an a video to follow. ill put that on when it happens
