[PCMSNT008] Putting a Glass Away

by Nic TVG



Putting a Glass Away begins with manipulated piano samples as inharmonic drones swell up and lead into a sustained harmony. The main focus is on a jazz beat with a few syncopated glitches used when the rhythm strays off downbeat. The mood is lightened by a couple hints to classic Drum and Bass.

Las Lalalas was reworked to move the emphasis to the vocals and a sparser drum break. This allowed each sample to have more space and for subtle changes in the lower frequency to come through.

Longest, Shortest Path is nostalgic of early atmospheric Drum and Bass by starting with rich pads and a looping two bar, Amen pattern. The piece thins out into a muted version of the intro with few rhythmic cues. Field recordings of office buildings fill higher frequencies as the Amen loop is brought back and chopped with some variations to the rhythm.

The extended intro of Local Kale Hummus is the result of violin bows played on objects and then layered to create the drones, thuds, and screeches. The intro gradually leaves only a metronome in the mix leading into the second half. (If you are looking for mixing cues, the sub at 2:24 is the switch to 171 bpm.) The second half layers different noise sources and instrument recordings with an aggressive break beat making for a dense, fast-paced rush.
