About 5 years ago, a friend and I would make electronic dance music together in his bedroom, and no-one really heard it. This is what it sounded like. I’d strongly suggest listening on headphones, because it hasn’t been mixed properly for speakers and certain instruments are a wee bit overpowering.
There are few things I’d enjoy more than being able to perform these tracks live, but it’s pretty difficult to organise. Neither of us have a particularly strong background in electronic music; we enjoy it, but it’s not a lifestyle. I think I, in particular, still see music too strictly in terms of notes and chords, and that approach doesn’t lend itself to electronic music the way it does traditional music. That being said, it’d be a little dishonest to sequence the whole thing and press play while we pretend to trigger samples and mess with filters. We’d have to be playing the music, not just allowing it to be played, and it’s just not feasible to do that at the moment.
Maybe one day. Who wouldn’t want to see a bunch of your drunk friends dancing instead of standing politely sipping a pint?
