gghost rehab by Arcana Red
"gghost rehab is a track performed & recorded by Arcana Red, using mainly ipad/ipod apps and a Waldorf Blofeld. "I'd like to say that I know exactly what I'm doing, but these days in the current musical climate, that's not always a good thing. I used mainly ipad/ipod apps such as: Gliss, Reactable Mobile, Rain, Runxt Life, and Sound Scope Space, along with a Waldorf Blofeld for added texture and some added chords. I also used Axon by Audio Damage for added percussion. I wanted some generative elements that I could have some control over. I also manipulated and mangled many of the sounds that I thought were either too definable to their related programs, or needed a texture that was less smooth and clean sounding for this track. There is a part that sounds like novice violin playing where the bow is digging harshly into the strings. Surprisingly, to me at least, I was able to create this sound using Sound Scope Space. Perhaps playing in a sloppy way added a touch of realism. I also wanted the track to have a sense of location/space in its sound. It's a fairly long piece of music best enjoyed alone with a bottle of wine, or just 'zoning' out. If you decide to hit play, thank you." - Arcana Red.
