Last month I finished the E-Project #4, one of my most difficult and complex recording to date. With this piece I wanted to mix the 70s Berlin School sound with Minimalism and some ideas from the "sporadic" techniques of compositions I began to apply in 1999. Also I wanted to experiment with multiple layers of sounds (thing that I've been doing with the previous E-Projects too), and all this led me to a titanic and hard recording, with around 60-65 tracks, busses, FX channels, groups, etc., and a lot of headaches! Hard, but pleasant when it was finished! :-) Anyway, I think the next recordings will be more easy and conventional! :-)
What about this new piece, it's divided in two parts. The first part («Deus Ex Machina») is an ambient composition and works as introduction to the second part, which is the main part of the project. «Deus Ex Machina» includes an excerpt of one of my first improvisations with the modular synthesizer I'm mounting (the whole improvisation is the track «Improvisation 2016.02.21: Through God's Core»). Other interesting thing about this track is that it was used the real recording of gravitational waves created from the collapse of two black holes (captured by the LIGO observatory on the 14th of September of 2015 and assumed the empirical demostration of the existence of gravitational waves predicted by Albert Einsten, maybe the most important in Astronomy the last year).
The second and main part is called «God's Ladder». Everything in this piece turns around a monophonic sequence developing constantly. This sequence development was recorded along 9 synthesizers (!), creating diverse layers during all the progress of the piece. At the end of this you can listen to all the synthesizers workign together. A crazy thing!
