16: Rocket Trip

Listen out for these sounds in Rocket Trip:

I hope your Wednesday has been going well.

I have just been working on some music for your project.

Firstly a slightly boring computer related story

A few weeks my 2014 MacBook Pro stopped working / I took it over to Apple and they helped the poor old thing out.

They installed a new operating system but with no garage band which I normally use for music.

I think if I had installed a new version it would have melted it.

I was going to send over some music I had made in the summertime.

Anyway today I was feeling the vibes of some kind and decided to make some improvised music.

So this afternoon recording on my iPad using Voice Memo /  I made 4 pieces of music/sound for you.

These pieces were made with:

Acoustic Guitar


Casio SK-1 Keyboard

Thunder Tube

Toy Saxophone

Loop Station

Synthesizer Bass Pedal

Recorded live in downtown Dunfermline on Wednesday afternoon.

I hope you can access the sound files / and that you can use them in someway for the project?

When I’m immersed in drawing I’m always happy. I love the way the sounds reflect the mark making and materials; it’s as though you can trace the drawing invisibly in your mind.

Also, this is a set of recordings I made in the Pacific Northwest a few years ago that I love – it’s an accidental aeolian harp that was made out of some fishing line that was strung up on a dock. It was super windy and it was making a completely amazing noise! I was so excited by it, and I still love listening to it. 

Yann Seznec (with Kristina Seznec)

This was the first song I learnt with both hands.

This track begins with a performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow written by Harold Arlen. Rocket Trip named by Harry Oakley. Written by Marcus Oakley and Tommy Perman. Produced by Tommy Perman.
