Venter OT-IN 04:12


This album represents a new direction for jido-genshi (and also the first album for jido-genshi on bandcamp!)

A series of live experiments using the Elektron Octatrack, everything was initially recorded into Ableton Live using various Hardware and Software Synths, as well as found sounds recorded around the house with the Zoom H4N.

Then, each piece was rendered one by one as individual samples/loops and loaded into the Octatrack. Once I had a couple hundred of these, I then created the Patterns/Parts, mixing and matching the samples and manipulating and tuning them further within the Octatrack until I built it up into a full, one-take, live performance.

Additional note: These tracks were initially going to be part of my music project called Venter; a project I had started over a decade ago and had initially released tracks back then on MySpace. But recently a new "Venter" band popped up and grabbed up the name on all the social networks, so I thought it would just be easier to use my already established jido-genshi name and use "Venter" as the album title.
