Making Some Minimalistic Techno
#21
RE: Making Some Minimalistic Techno
I listened to the whole album Orbital 2 on Napster. "Where is it Going?" Live blew me away. Some of the stuff on Orbital2 could be Industrial if it were a little harsher and had some harsh vocals.

In regards to loudness wars stuff
I tend to take advantage of any headroom I have and my stuff is pretty loud. Sometimes I use compression to bring up the volume when i do raspy half screaming aggotech vocals. Some of it would be incomprehensible without it because of what the voice naturally does when you do that.

RE: Making Some Minimalistic Techno
You may want to look into My Bloody Valentine. Live, they're loud enough that the band gives out free earplugs to keep their fans from permamently damaging their hearing, especially during the "Holocaust Section" of "You Made Me Realise." 20 minutes of nonstop cacophony at 110 dB.

And yet, when the time came to master Loveless as well as their new album mbv, Kevin Shields, frontman and the only musician to actually play on Loveless, managed to take the time to mix and master it properly, so the soft parts are quiet, and the loud parts seem deafening. And they still managed to retain their noisiness on record without sacrificing proper mastering.

He goes into a little more detail about this here.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

I'm so glad you like Orbital Smile

How about "Satan" Live?



"Work quickly. And the same applies for doing albums or any project. Just work quickly. You can fix it later if you need to., Work quickly, get it in there and and you know what? Try not to fiddle. If you've got lots of things that you want to do to change it then maybe what you are trying to do is do another project. Don't keep imposing all your fresh ideas on the old work. Do it, finish it, get it done good enough - do it and then: do something else. Don't keep fiddling. I see people get lost regurgitating an album that sounds good! They might play me an album and I say "That's great! Get it out."

Five years later they've regurgitated that same album so much that it's not even the same album anymore and you wonder what went on and what process went on in their heads." - Paul Hartnoll

I made a new Soundcloud and thread for my latest music--because it's so much better than my other music that it deserves its own Souncloud and its own thread on AF.

Here it is:
