Description : I may have mentioned to a few people that I had recorded an EP to cassette tape in November. The thirty minute, seven track tape was recorded on 14th and 15th November (during that excellent full moon). My process, this time, involved choosing a group of instruments from my main studio, and then interfacing them in a way that allowed me to perform a spontaneous track live. There was no planning, and each track was only given attention until the previous was lain on tape. All in all, it was a very rewarding experience to create "on a whim" like this. No DAW was used to create the sounds, or to perform/arrange them. All instruments were mixed in real time, and the output was forever dedicated to the magnetic medium. All of these songs were instrumental, and not traditional in their performance. This is a digital capture of two songs from the EP - "Agonist Moon" and "Faultline" - They are the last track of Side A and the first track of Side B. If you are not familiar with those terms... they indicate the direct physical and psychological experience of interacting with recorded media in order to play it in it's entirety. "Agonist Moon" was described by my wife as an "Icaro," which is a tribal shamans healing song in certain cultures. "Faultline" is more of a peak minimal technological shift into the rest of the EP. UPDATE - The entire Agonist Moon EP digital re-master is now available here... https://spivkurl.bandcamp.com/album/agonist-moon-ep

    What an imagination you carry to create this kind of raw surreal sound. I remember in the 70's while doing a lot of hash I would sit around listening to "Isao Tomita" or sound effects record's and imagine how I could manipulate and chop up the sounds and rewrite them. Little did I know we could do that so easily as we can today. Bravo Dude. You know how to tug on my memorys.

    this is really amazing approach to sound you presented on EP and I mean this in a positive sense. Really a great amount of true musical content to be found and explored and enjoyed in here!
    Let me explain: As I mentioned I am listening intensively to the 2nd chanell of Polish Radio right now in order to stay sane and connected to whatever useful from the overall 'culture'. I was listening to the famous 'I am sitting in the room' by Alvin Lucier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAxHlLK3Oyk for example and had a chance (unintentionally for the most part) to instruct myself on different musical matters I had only a vague knowledge until now. Anyway... Your works are definitely much more performative and 'improvisative' than that dry conceptual. I know it is hard to find a proper resonance and even basic understanding to this kind of art on Looperman sometime.

    I am listening to entire EP on bandcamp right now

    Hello there, and thank you for listening to this recent EP! I visited the "I am sitting in a room" recording, and will not have time to hear it throughout this morning, but may return to it at another time. It made me curious of the real process which he used in the recording. Also, it reminded me a bit of the last EEG test which I went through in July. The technician need to record the session, but she also had the computer speakers turned on. So you can guess what happened... each minimal noise fed back upon itself. She opened a cough drop, and the echoes cut into my brain. She coughed, and I wanted to puke. It was pretty much ridiculous, and obviously I could not get a sleep result. I hope to do more of this improvisation work, but currently I'm more focused on instrument building, in order to facilitate the work. I need to scrape the cat box now, ha ha, so I will speak to you soon! Thank you again for your listen and words!

    Spent several years with various format tape machines Spiv so I have some appreciation for their audio character...Maybe I repeat myself but I have much respect for the way you create..you accomplish things that not many do or could with your dedication to those synths and knowledge that few would posses .Those that describe what you do as creative and unique are on the money as far as I am concerned..hats off to you...keep on..Ed

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey Ed, thank you as always for the kind hearted comments, and for going out of your way to listen to my stuff. I feel this drive, many times, to convince people to see even a little bit "my way." Usually it feels like pulling teeth... Hopefully I can learn to give that up eventually, except in the music itself. I've spent several weeks designing a new and unusual modular rig, and it will probably be several more before it's finished. Still it is good compared to the decade or so spent on my last one. Thanks again my friend!

I try to be inventive in most aspects of life, music and are being most obvious, but even with cooking, navigation, gardening, partying, or whatever. Maybe invention is the mother of necessity?

    Hiya Friend!

    I have to say without reservation that you are probably among the truest artists on Looperman. The way you express yourself through sound is quite cerebral. I am compelled to listen. I hope you always stay true to whatever that thing is that drives your artistic expression. Well done, you, on this piece, and I am in total agreement with Bleep...every time you listen to this track there is some new discovery.



    Reply by Spivkurl

    Mykael, it is always a pleasure to receive a comment from you! I never know where I'm going to go next as far as creation, except maybe a moment before it happens. Been focusing on building instruments more lately, rather than recording. Been soldering and researching circuit for several hours a day. The one on the desk now is pretty involved... about fifteen circuit boards so far, with at least a couple more to build. I'm very happy that you enjoyed listening to these songs, and I hope you go grab the whole EP, as it definitely loses something when heard separately. Thanks friend!

    Hello old friend,

    Right from the get go I like the textures in the sounds, intro is building nicely. Its quite a mad journey but I like it, something different for a change!

    Once faultline kicks in its a lot more upbeat, some cool sounds working together here. The percussive white noise elements work really well to give the track some nice rhythm. I think this is my fav of the two, it has a bit more structure to it! The bass sound at 8:30 is a tad too loud for my liking but I appreciate it was done on the fly.

    Keep doing what you're doing, buddy! :)

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thanks for listening to these and leaving your words! I agree about faultline being the more structured of the two. It was done directly after agonist moon, and I was definitely on a pretty decent high from the earlier experience. I chose a slightly less challenging medium to work with, and thus it flowed in comparison. The bass sound which is loud near the end was sort of one of those "accidentally on purpose" moments, and it is really one of my favorite parts of the whole EP. I love the contrast of it. I'm hoping to actually record something today... been locked in the lab soldering quite a few hours a day for weeks. If I don't take a day off my brain is going to die from the fumes (again). Very pleased with the overall reaction to these songs, and I did not expect it. I really appreciate it man!

    There are some things in life, which we are not meant to understand. My supposition is that your listen was partial, even though there are two songs, though I may be wrong. There are also some forms of medicine which are not meant for the uninitiated. I know this sounds super elitist, but it really is long cultural tradition, and one which I hold dear. Somehow, I know you would be back after my reply. Is it possible that you did not read the description either? Another supposition is that you do not listen to cassette tapes, and as this is digitally mastered from the original cassette, then you can not get your head around the hiss, wow and flutter, and saturation type. It comes with time. To me tapes are like gold. You need not worry, none of this is offensive... it is just the way things are now. Thank you for your comments.

    I'm not going to lie, I originally listened to it on my phone (hence the short comment), but when I got to my desktop I was literally entranced by the minimalist direction and the sound of the what I'm assuming was the spinning record. I listened to the whole thing in silence. It really feels different and surreal, and I enjoyed every second. It is so raw, I could not but help get ear tingles from it! Good job, Spiv. You knocked it out of the park on this one.


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Brado, thank you for listening, apparently more than once! I would probably not be mistaken if I said that this work was as far from intended to be listened to on a phone as is possible. I don't even have a phone of my own any more, and I've never had a smart phone. It is more intended for listening to a first generation cassette copy on any system, or the digital remaster on a hi-fi system. I'm sure that the desktop was much closer to this, so I'm happy that it translated well. No vinyl was harmed in the making of this recording, what you hear is the wow and flutter of the Sansui 2-track cassette deck which it was recorded to. Surreal is definitely a good word from my point of view. It seems that people are able to connect to the work, so I am happy. Thank you for the comment!

    This gave me acid flashbacks, frankenstein, I'm Aliiiiiiiive!!, meditation music, tranced out, 8:25 Willy Wonka midgit with an orange face from the original movie bowing down pushing on a bike pump as the chocolate jumps in the transparent tube, did you subliminalize me?

    Reply by Spivkurl

    "acid flashbacks"... you and me both man. I do so love a good reanimated corpse! It is interesting that you bring up "meditation music." I have never been good at meditation, no matter how much a desire it. Most of the moments where I feel the singularity and infinity of life are when I am creating music. In this state, I know that it could go on forever, and I would simply be lost in particles and energy with anything else that exists. I used to enjoy the Wonka thing as a child, however my wife has traumatic experience with it, so I have not paid attention to it for decades. Your reference to the film did give me some perspective on the cinematic value of music such as this. I appreciate that. There was no conscious subliminal additions to these songs, however the EP as a whole does contain a conscious manipulation of incidental phrases, meaning that accidental inclusions were adjusted with intent. Thank you for taking a listen to these songs and leaving your comment!

    Whooh, that was some journey. 9 min. Loved every minute of it. Very creative and original. This to me is art, a conception that only you can interpret, and we can appreciate. How did you make those glitch fx? Sounds fresh unlike anything I've ever heard. Gotta hand it to you, you put a lot of work into this I see. And I loved it. You get a faved from me!


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hello GuyManDude, and thank you for the listen and comment on these songs! I am quite happy with the reception of this work since it was released, and really surprised as well. It felt very personal when performing, yet it seems to connect with other people as well, so that is the best thing I could expect! You ask, "How did you make those glitch fx?" I find it hard to answer, for the obvious reason that there is no specific sound identified. I can cite the involvement of my VC3T module for the first song, as it can spew forth seemingly random synthetic tone and voice glitches. Again, it is hard to specify. Since both of these songs were performed with all instruments interacting directly, the sounds can barely be taken singularly... you take out one instrument, and the others will change completely. The "work" on this EP was secondary to the the "need" and the "pleasure." Possibly it is this which allows others to connect to the result? Thank you very much for your words!

    That opening bass with that synth percussion is awesome. You are taking this form of electronic minimalism to an incredible artistic place my friend. You are exploring the subtle harmonics of sound itself. 3:44 was like an intermission for the polyrythmic onslaught to come. I am almost hypnotised by this piece. I cant look away, like its a bad car crash, but knowing this I still cant look away. Prettiness in ugliness. Anxiety creating Zen. Its so wrong and perverse but its compelling mentally and physically. @ 8:30 the Bassus Interuptus sort of brings us out of the trance and back to the first floor of life.
    Well freaking done spiv........

    Hey Crucethus, I'm very happy to be able to reply to you today. It's just a super positive day for me, and this is also one of the cooler comments I've received from you to date! Recording these songs, and the rest on the EP, was a completely new experience for me. It seemed to break down my own barriers to some extent, and I am very happy with reactions of my listeners so far. I really enjoyed performing with a different group of instruments for each song, it seemed to attach a memory to the song. Your car crash metaphor had significance to me, both for recent inspirations, and for distant past personal experiences. Needless to say, I do not drive, at all. "Faultline" is definitely one of my favorite works, especially of live recordings. "Its so wrong and perverse but its compelling mentally and physically." - This to me suggests an adequate summation of modern human existence, and I respect this. The "Bassus Interuptus" (COOL cool song title idea BTW) you speak of was one of those "accidentally on purpose" moments for me... one thing which magnetic tape is so good for capturing. Sorry to ramble, it's just a good day. I think I sold instrument to a couple of well known US musicians in the last week... hopefully it pays for the legal fines! Thanks so much for the comment!

    Peace !

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy, it's nice to hear from you! Thank you for listening and leaving some words! The cinematic recommendation is definitely easy for me to understand. A decent amount of my very early work stemmed from a collection of demo tracks I made for a video game. My friend was going to program it, and I would make the music. It never materialized, and could have simply been kava dreams. Honestly, I have trouble watching modern film, in large part due to the poorly made sound tracks. If someone were to approach me with a film I believed in, may something would materialize. I've been temporarily "turned off" by some of my favorite musicians for their soundtrack work, for example Trent Reznor, however I support him doing what he likes. Either way, "Ghosts" and the related film work were my least favorite of his musical work. And then there is Mark Mothersbaugh, who can pretty much make any film into GOLD with his music. Ahh, but I'm rambling... I really appreciate your consistent support and visits to my profile! Trying to stay safe, but that ice is killer out there! Let's make 2017 better than 16, right?

    That makes me feel good in a way, like I'm being at least a partially positive influence. I'm a pretty major psychonaut, but still I feel like I am more sober than most humans I meet in life. . . Like people are so repressed and over-medicated, that they can not even sense the obvious. It's hard to feel this way, but also rewarding. When people, such as those around this site, treat me like I'm not a complete nutter, it helps make it easier. Thank you so much for leaving your comfort zone for a few minutes!

    Thank you CatBrawl for the listen and comment! I see what you mean... I can think of some musicians who's influence can be heard, depending on which song from the EP I'm hearing, however it's not too obvious. I'm also lucky that these musicians are simply not that popular or well known these days. I've always been pretty weird, just have been embracing it more recently. The reactions to these songs encourage me to continue doing so! I appreciate it!

    Feels like I'm plugged straight into the board!..which in affect we are. I think many things are lost so to speak on the cutting room floor and it's why releases of unheard studio takes are popular. When you strip back all the production values of any music your likely to hear these days there's be a multitude of glitches, now seeing as this material is essentially electronic glitch I guess your well ahead of the curve!... interesting stuff, I couldn't listen to it for extended periods (mind you I have the same reaction to Classical, which I really like) however I dig the processes and jam spontaneity and "happening" aspect...When most of the dudes are paddling in the mainstream it's always good to see some brave soul going over the falls in a barrel wearing an alfoil hat!..cheers Dave ;)

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Dave, it is great to hear from you regarding these two tracks! You make an interesting point about the "cutting room floor." It makes me wonder what other musicians, whether my peers or whatever, would get for results if they attempted something such as this. I can think about the vast majority of musicians whom I know, besides yourself and a few others, who would probably not be capable. This is not to say that they do not have the talent, but more it refers to the computer/software reliance, not to mention the probably lack of cassette equipment.,, many of them do not even have an instrument to lay their hands on. It's a bit sad to me, but something I try to accept. You are correct, this stuff is not meant for extended listening, but more like a microdose medicine... this is partly why I chose the thirty minute cassette for this project. I was most proud of keeping the process moving to achieve the seven recorded songs in two days. Whether they are good, bad, or something which needs a new adjective, it is still more creative output than I can usually achieve. Your comment made me think of the Primus track, "Over The Falls." They rock. Thank you for always taking a listen and letting me know what you think, it is good to have an accomplished musicians support! Have a good day/year!

    Jamid, your comments are a constant reminder of why I keep coming back to Looperman! It seems like this is one of the few places where I can interact with like minded people, or at least people who understand what I'm doing. Your words do not go unappreciated! Even the person who inspired the EP, and was the first to receive a cassette copy, has not given even a simple reaction. Life is strange that way, those who drive us to create or act, are often not the ones who seize the moment or benefit from the acts. It helps me realize how it is the act of creation which is the most important, and less about where it comes from or where it goes. We can't predict our effects upon the world. Thank you!

    It would be amazing to jam with you in person! Your creativity is endless. The sounds in Agonist Moon are unique and gritty. I love when the drums drop out and we go into Faultline. That song is brutal old school industrial sounding. Can't wait for the EP dude!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy, it's good to have you visit my track! Your words are not lost on me, though I doubt the endlessness of my creativity... possibly it is still limited by the finite supply of fossil fuels, but I hope that will change. I've been trying to shift toward less power consumption, to that end. Agonist Moon is "gritty" mostly due to the instruments chosen... three of them - my DIY modular synth, a circuit bent V-Tech Music Major keyboard, and a circuit bent Casio SK-1... the tape deck played a big part in that one, as this hiss was used sort of as an instrument in relation to the S/N ratio. The drop our between is simply the end of side A and the beginning of side B, but without the continuity leader of side A. I'm happy that you could get through the first track to the second, as regardless of their intended togetherness, "Faultline" turned out pretty damn cool. I will try to get that EP encoded, I've just been procrastinating. Thank you so much for the listen and comment!

    it sounds like an "u.f.o". Each time you listen to it you discover some new details. Really interesting, abstract track so, only one word comes to me: ART



    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you for listening to this! In cultures where "icaros" were a prominent healing device, aliens were also a common fixture, as far as I can tell. In a similar way, art was an important part of healing and life in general. I'm sitting here, hoping that the energy waves which are currently hitting the earth are either to heal all, or alternately to destroy. This world is in great need of hygiene, and humans are the crud between the teeth of the great yawning chasm. Happy that you enjoyed the listen!

    Hi Spiv ! You always took on some extraordinary project which clearly shows your inventiveness and passion for being out of the ordinary. I respect this helluvalot! And therefore sometimes seems that the process of doing things takes the spotlight even more than the actual result. As a music producer myself I easily cope with that and I completely support your approach on the way to artistic fulfillment. I will be watching for the EP release...that's for sure!:)


    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you Orlando for always being involved in the comments for my songs! You are a big part of this community for me, and I respect that. It seems that the further I delve into musical expression, the more I become wrapped up in the creative process. It also seems that the results, and the listeners reactions, become more pleasing to me. I am enjoying the confidence and freedom to feel that I can release something such as this, without deep concern about "fallout." (Except maybe radioactive fallout!). Either way, I always enjoy hearing what you have to say after hearing my work, and I thank you!

Description : OK, I finally managed to find a song name, so here it is. But the genre is still open. WTF is it? World? Trip? Trance? Rock? psychedelic? .

I started this song with the wahwah background track, I think I wanted to go in the triphop direction but when I played with it and tried out things I added some Tabla sounds from the available sound library of the cubase software to it, just to get a feel for it. It sounded right somehow, and so it developed from there. As before, we did the work on wikiloops band section: bhunt1 (Brian) on Bass added his track, and rp3drums (Raymond) on drums (one straight drum track, and one para-diddle track). I then added several more guitar tracks.

So I would be happy to listen to your comments and advice, and if I get a good suggestion for name and genre I will change it. Cheers, TG :D

Description : UPDATE 3/31/2016 - Did some work on the mix and master thanks to the advice of Crucethus and promenade2239. I knew something needed work, and it turned out I need some shifting in the time-space continuum. Thanks to everyone who commented so far!

Original DESC - Yes, I admit it... I fall down. Different circumstances and results each time, but it does happen. Got some inspiration in the last week or two, and left behind some other responsibilities for a while to make this track. Did a considerable amount of multisampling of a Realistic C1000 to add to the song. This is the first song I've finished which uses my modified Korg Monotribe. Also contains Microkorg (on glitch percussion and vocoder use), Yamaha ys-200, Zoom RT-123, and my modular synth doing circuit bent voice synth duties. Psychedelic, dark cold wave. EDIT: Now that I think about it, there were no virtual synths involved in this composition, but only virtual samplers and effects. Everything else was MIDI and hardware sound source. Thank you for listening! Please leave a comment and I will return the favor!

Description : Break up song of sorts lol. Vox, guitars and keys by Zootman. Beats and bass free Loopmasters demo. Words are (mostly) what I thought Damo Suzuki was singing on One More Night by Can. Instrumental or stems avail if anyone wants to play with it.

Description : I walked for miles, and what seemed like millennia in order to find the inspiration for this song, and subsequently the album which it helped finalize. It is an essential title track for me, even if it is encoded.

Here is the artwork in question.

A twenty-two month experiment,

Combining infinite expansion with absorpsion and inhibition.

A two thousand mile walk to the place I call home.

A home to be myself and room to roam.

A bone, and a stone, all alone and unknown,

But aglow, and beloved,

Here the sun and snow shown.

The album is available here, for the time being....

Description : I tried to make a 'doom cello' track but failed as the chillout vibes really took over but there is still some heaviness as well as a few minutes of dance music in the final sections. It's very moody and atmospheric and dominated by strings and drums. 120BPM but most of it is half that tempo. Lots of my electric cello playing though there are also sample-based string parts, especially the foreboding, drone bass - the only bass instrument in the track. Other pad sounds add some mystical, spacey beauty while an arpeggiated VST guitar instrument adds a progressive band feel in the first half. Drums are two programmed kits and mostly one hard rock/metal kit. Also one drum loop plus two music loops towards the end. I very rarely use music loops but they seem to work here. Let me know what you think of this progressive epic. Sorry it's so long but hopefully it justifies its length. It's definitely far out and difficult to place in any particular, obvious genre.

Description : One of several live in studio tracks which I recorded in recent weeks. This one incorporated my DIY modular synth and a modified Yamaha DD-20 as the only instruments. The DD-20 was, in part, triggered at audio rates, enabled by the the input modifications. Not quite the usual spivkurl track which you may be accustomed to. I'm putting this in psychedelic, though it could easily fit into ambient, glitch or cinematic genres.

Description : Descent into the archaic and cursed meanders of Nameless City. Inspired by the homonymous story by HPL. Comment freely, friends.

Description : The results of six hours in a psychotropic environment which was novel to my experience. Only fixed some minor mistakes and mastered the song after I left the environment (or after it left me). It tugs at passion as a dog biting a dress. Resentment and discontent are its language. Slice of life tragic comedy, with a psychedelic edge.

Description : Far out, cello-based, deep grooving, progressive, powerful and sometimes aggressive sci fi epic with lots of electronic elements and some dubstep craziness towards the end. Electric cello, slow attack guitar, resonator guitar, a little bit of bass guitar, 5 synths, lots of effects and drum loops and a few programmed drum kits. It all began with the first couple of cello riffs (one pizzicato bassline, one bowed main riff) and the hip hop beats and then grew and grew as I added more synths and drums and worked in some old, leftover guitar parts. It's very detailed and complex and the mix and sculpting of the sounds are as important as the composition. Have a good listen then come back and let me know what you thought of this twisting, turning journey into outer space. Feel free to criticise and/or tell me your favourite parts...

Description : Far out epic featuring sine waves, programmed violin parts, played electric cello, various synths, drum loops and programmed acoustic drums. Mystical and a bit Eastern. A three min drumless intro and then some fat grooves and darker sounds. Not as good as I was hoping it would be. Interesting comments appreciated...
