THE WEB - The Web Experience

So finally, this now is my first series of tracks. They were produced from june to october 2006. It was until Summer 2006 that i didn't have my own PC, cuz there was no need, i always could use the ones of the friends i lived with if i wanted to. However, it never came to my mind doing music tracks on their PC. But when i finally bought my own cuz i lived alone for a while, i decided also to make music with it so i made sure i bought a powerful one and pimped it with enough RAM. It's so easy nowadays to make music only with a PC - they have enough power, memory etc. and the music itself went digital anyway in terms of handling and storage so i thought why buying a lot of equipment and then discover that you don't really have the time to really learn and work with it, when you have easy to use computer programs and almost every possibility with respect to sounds ...e.g. Roland drum machines? yes, of course, every Type, in one box... and they sound like they should - if not you have effects and switches à gogo to take you there. So all you nead is a good ear - it's similar to cooking, with the advantage that you can always readily correct if you got too much salt or pepper in the soup :-)

With the first track, Web Beatz No.1 (how obvious...), i explored what i can do with the more classic drum sounds - that is, without Roland drummachine sounds, but approaching the typical techno feeling in the track. The second one started with playing around with a bell-like synth sound - told you before in the post THE WEB - Exerz EP. Shine combines a classic electrobeat with a pounding ride of distorted 909 bassdrums to reach the desired driving force. Bits Bites 1.1 and Help Line are classic oldschool 4tothefloor techno tracks. In Skyscraping i tried not to use a single synth sound, but approaching the desired sounds with multi-modified noise samples. Rocka Industries is a quite special beast, i guess "electronic punkrock breakbeat chaos" would be an adequate description... After this, a soft landing is needed - this is provided by the 2step track Love You. The closing track, Potpürree, is a reprise & mash up of four of the Web Experience tracks - Exerz, Shine, Skyscraping and Help Line.

As a bonus i added a track that i made back in 1993 (Sleepless I - Over And Off) with the equipment of a colleague that had an EBM Band (called "Krompholz", only locally known). This was amazing: he showed me in short how the samlper, drummachines, synth & sequencer worked, gave me a key to their band room and told me on what days they were not in, and that i could go then anytime and do my stuff, if i liked. WOW! i played around a lot but then i also wanted to take something with me so i produced a proper track and recorded it to a minidisc (...maybe you remember them?;-) and from this to tape. That's where i ripped it now, so the audio might not be best quality... if something somehow sounds familiar to you: the (mid-)bassline is a sped up sample from the start of Pink Floyd's "One Of These Days" ;-)
