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:
Casio SK-1 Keyboard
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?Marcus Oakley
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 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.
