Vulgar Display of Debug vol.3 [thrift, thrift, Horatio!]

sylvain van iniitu

those tracks were made during the last 3 years, during the development of Piccolo, a sequencer/midi player built from scratch.
i have been improvising or deconstructing MIDI files, regularly hitting the REC button when something sounded good enough.
out of the hundreds of hours of archives, i have selected fragments which, although still basically patchy lo-fi debugging experiments also have a special quality which says something pleasurable about that whole process.
some are improvisations, some are renditions of compositions by significant others. sometimes the lines are blurred. sometimes i forgot if it was based on an existing track. such is my memory. i like that state between recognizable and unknown.

'Thanassis' is a thankful trace for the warm welcome and the rembetiko of our greek friends, a stay during which i totally renewed the sequencer's inner working.
'bliss for Laurie' is a process-based piece, using some scale and mode transpositions, and is dedicated to the work of Laurie Spiegel. it also hints a bit at LSD, by Coil.

for MIDI deconstructions i used my alter ego [0x4d546864], but it doesnt really matter.

thanks to Patrick, the whole E42.A8 players, and especially Rini & Liv for bearing with me through those endless hours
