Variance

I am currently going through my online mixes, tracks, etc. and cleaning up anything I think is old or just not up to par anymore. With that I deleted my mixes on Mixcloud and started over with a concept called “Variance”. I will make short 30 min sets, each will be a different genre/mixture of genres that are World influenced.

As I post this I have 2 mixes out:

Variance 01 – Ambient 7  Downtempo

Variance 02 – Dub

Enjoy and please spread the word!

Fract’ured & Twitching

I had been looking for an artist to do some abstract work for my album and each song. Unfortunately nothing worked out and out of frustration I downloaded a few Fractal making programs and went to dabbling.

I ended up using one that lets you go very deep into the mathematical structure of each fractal as well as the ability to render video. So to the deep end I dove into the fractal program and unexpectedly I was making fantastic abstract art that was beginning to look like what I wanted in the beginning.

After 2 weeks of fiddling around and tightening up the fractals I rendered them and then cleaned them up and added text… which upped my Photoshop skills quickly, many thanks to my Graphics Art teacher Mr. Garcia (many many moons ago), I was able to remember some of the basics and it made the process much easier.

Here is the final version of each song and the album uploaded to SoundcCloud:

I am streaming again on Twitch starting June 24th and in a few weeks I will be uploading tutorial videos to YouTube again, going to try to do 2-3 a week with a linear type timeline so that the viewer can learn on their own time and not get lost in the YT algorithm.

Lastly, I am finished with the live set for the album (about 45 mins) and will be adding 2 more tracks to make it an hour and I am setting up gigs. If you know of a bar/club/promoter that may like my music feel free to email me: KineticDistortion@gmail.com

Into The Night

After a few weeks of restructuring some of the songs, as well as mixing (and mixing)  each track until they were just right, I finally have finished the album “Deep Into The Night”

Deep Into The Night is a World/Bass/Electronic album with a mixture of electronic and traditional instruments, as well as field recordings from around California.
Every song is set to a specific place on Earth with each having it’s own story, From the Pueblo Indians in New Mexico having a forgotten ritual, to the Malagasy fighting Pirates and Colonists.

You can check the album out at: https://soundcloud.com/kineticdistortion/sets/deep-into-the-night-album

I also have finished the live set (basic form) with synced dmx lighting & lasers and will be adding projected visuals and 2 more songs soon. For now it’s time to start bugging promoters and club owners.
