Technetium

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Just as Dubnium is a dub track, Technetium is supposed to be a techno track. It didn’t quite turn out like techno, but I’m calling it Technetium nonetheless.

Listen to Technetium.

In other news, it’s my birthday!

Xenon

Sunday, February 19th, 2006

Xenon is a noble gas used in “neon lights” (technically, only orange ones are neon, xenon is more blue/purple), in camera flashes, strobe lights, and as a general anesthetic. This song makes me think of cool-colored lights, and also has a sad-yet-groovy feel that I think conveys anesthetics.

Listen to Xenon.

Gallium

Saturday, February 18th, 2006

Gallium is a metal that is liquid at near room temperature — it will melt in your hand — which is exactly what I felt this song was doing, becoming fluid and out of my control. Gallium is used in mirrors and integrated circuits, among other things.

In this song, Reaktor provides the main pad sound. The other synths are my Evolver, and I also processed the pads with the Evolver to get some semi-glitchy sounds. The beats are Reason.

Listen to Gallium
