dawnings (Week 4) / by Will Tyas

I really liked how rhythmic 'Amara Baratasan' was last week - Will's put the Whispers in some silly tempo, like 94.54 bpm or something - I made the start of 'dawnings' by stuttering out his plucky bass rhythm and cranking some reverb on it. It's mixed with me accidentally recording the master track, which feeds back/screams like a wolf with a laserbeam howl, that ominous synth-howl-alarm that fades in and out. I then played some MIDI organ through a hollow looper and layered a field recording of my commuter train tannoy through a beat repeater, which rhythmically cuts the voice and redirects it's frequency at intervals, so it sounds like a half-broken robot trying to finish its phone call. I did this because I told Will the tannoy has an infectious drone to it and he told me to record it. I then put a beat in underneath the reprising organ at the end. The beat is in a grain delay setting that I can't remember.
