Time Scape sound samples

More info on the Time Scape in the post below: Time Scape
Below you'll find the samples (medium quality mp3) as well as some explanation of what's happening. Please excuse any clipping or peaked levels in the recording - I'm experimenting with new recording software. None of this is edited except where it says otherwise and no external processing is ever used.

These first three samples are the internal sounds of the Time Scape - no external processing, no incoming sound and no use of the Scape Sequencer. They do utilize the onboard auto patching and excess feedback.

These next samples go through some of the real-time, time-based alteration using the auto patch and auto add funtions, no sequencer, no external effects. The sound source is from my mp3 player - John Zorn, Satie, something unknown - the alteration is great enough to where it doesn't much matter what the sound source is, except that it be hard or soft - most of this is on the soft side.

Here, bits of Satie are sent into the analog style delay and the excess feedback potential (utilizing the high pass and low pass feedback touch points) is explored

The following are all loop-based recordings with the sample source being whatever's playing on the mp3 player, no external processing.

The first is a recordings of a single loop captured and altered by patching the Scape Sequencer into the patchbay on the Time Scape. John Zorn, a simple beat which begins with a subtle exploration of the use of the sequencer and time based patches but as the recording goes on the beat gets gradually more twisted, adding some ring mod, IDM madness, repeats of beat parts and finally returning to its source.

This recording is another captured beat twisted up gradually with the use of the sequencer - adding parts, subtracting parts, changing patches.

Time Scape loop 2

Here is Missisippi John Hurt live looped - "Candy Man" being altered by the sequencer. A bit long and perhaps annoying, but still it shows some of the timing variations

Time Scape loop 3

Here is John Zorn looped, fuqt with on the sequencer for awhile, later added to and eventually becoming a chaotic insane mess.

Time Scape loop 4

Last but not least, sections of longer recordings where playing the entire mess would be redundant - This is whatever is playing on the mp3 player being looped and altered with the use of the sequencer.
