Søren Kittehgaard on Caturday
Kittehgaard says: “The truth is a trap: you cannot get it without it getting you; you cannot get the truth by capturing it, only by its capturing you. That is why I am sitting on this stool.”
Caturday returns with a teachings for the head as well as music for the soul. Listen and learn. Three tunes connected by a sense of grandeur. Max Cooper gets remixed by Plaid, Robert Babicz gets remixed by Tim Engelhardt and a newie from Irregular Expression.
The Plaid remix is the first track from the Artefact Remixes EP by Max Cooper and Tom Hodge. This is Max Cooper’s liquid rhythms given a bit of angularity by Plaid and a sense of church-like grandeur. Perhaps a bit like something from Rustproof Clockwork. Plaid say, “Max sent us a lot of lovely sounding broken piano audio to work with so we were spoilt for choice. The remix opens and closes with an ultra stretched, phase vocoded piano chord from the original.The rest of the track is based upon transpositions of the same chord progression cycling over 7 bars, while the beat and bass cycles on 2’s. Rhythmically, it is built upon a great stuttering, sliced, fragmenting piano track from Remnants. We tried to convey a sense of archaeological discovery!”
Tim Engelhardt provides a remix of Robert Babicz’s forthcoming Bassporn. There’s nothing terribly erotic about this. Or, indeed, terribly bassy. But it is a lovely bit of deep house, with a smooth, rippling grandeur.
Finally, Irregular Expression’s new tune Lux. This is a free download and departs from the usual hip hop influenced sounds into something more leftfield but with a real bass kick.
