From Pieces of 8
If memory serves, this was the first piece completed to something more than a chiptune. it’s entirely composed of samples I lifted from CDs I had at the time, but nothing so blatant that you’d recognize. A chord here, a single percussion noise there, a single bass note over there… I was starting a collection of samples, and I was trying to learn the ScreamTracker program. And this was the result.
It’s not a great piece, but it’s a piece of my history so I always keep it around and listen to it from time to time. It’s a slow and clumsily atmospheric piece, but the remix is very reminiscent of Jam & Spoon.
Pendulum (Original Mix)
This is the original mix — more or less. At some point in the 90’s I ported this over from ScreamTracker to FastTracker and replaced an ugly bass sample that bothered me. The original mix is lost to the sands of time.
Pendulum (Spoon Fed Mix)
Shortly after creating the original mix, I tried an opposite mix in a trance style.
Pendulum (2021 EtherRedux)
I decided recently re rebuild the track using all the original samples and parts but with my current DAW. So this is the result of that; everything is the same, bar for bar.
Pendulum (2021 Spoon Fed EtherRedux)
I did the same treatment with the original remix as well. YET TO BE RELEASED.
Pendulum (2021 EtherReal Remix)
This is a new remix in a modern focus trance style with live instrumentation. YET TO BE RELEASED.
