>> Roots

Rychard and I just finished a new track!
Ten years ago Xavi introduced me to the didgeridoo.
Last winter some elves introduced me to the mouth harp
and after playing some for Rychard over the phone he decided
it was time to make another track. We did this one in record time.
This track gets its own cover cause I wanted to make something.
The didge aliens have been hanging around unfinished for years
and this seemed a good place for them.

Wow, man, it's a really cool sound especially the way it responds to human modulation. Sorta another fully man controlled/no electronics synth that doesn't need any knobs and sliders. I heard mouth harp before and always wondered if I could do it... OK, here's the question - is it possible to remix your track to a very minimalistic techno to hear harp the way it appears somewhere mid way through the song? ... my favourite part of the track anyway- very tight and dynamic groove. Well, it's just a thought- I did enjoyed it the way it played.

Very Happy Excellent!

I love the groove you set up in the first part. Who needs a vocoder when you've got a mouth harp?


  • What did you author in? Acid? Reason?
  • Did you quantize the mouth harp or do just have mad skillz?

Nicely done guys. Sweet cover art too.

Boh Boh Boh!

thanks for the kind words.
When I first heard Air play the mouth harp, I knew that we had to make track using it like a synth.
It was done in Logic-Pro.
I made the basic beats, then recorded Air while he improvised over them on harp and didgeridoo.
We picked our favorite sections and made the track around them.
There is no quantizing on the acoustic instruments, and much of it is completely unprocessed except for a little reverb, and of course lots of echo...

Dmaniac, if you want to do a mix, I'll get you the tracks.

Thanks all!

Awesome! I love it!

Here's another track with mouth harp by Air:

Simple drum beat, little bit of bass, and the mouth harp with no effects whatsoever. It is amazing how electronic it sounds!
