t00nz – The Dreamer

First track of the 2011 album! Slowly getting back into some kind of workflow after the break, so nice to get something completed. This was actually one of those tracks that just wrote itself in a short time (happens now and again).

Generally this year I have a couple of things I want to concentrate on musically.. One is getting more out of my gear. Another is a continuing push (that I don’t think is succeeding yet) to get some more musical ideas out (even if that means a bit of a return to basics with chiptunes or orchestral type things!).. This may happen at the cost of some production values.. but hopefully not too much so..

Also I’ve filled up my space on the new file host (google) so am probably going to be downgrading the mp3 quality to 128kbps… For those of you following the releases the 320kpbs will be up for a week or so, and after that the lower preview quality version. You can always get full quality from bandcamp, or ask me nicely 😉

t00nz – Hard stares

Release time comes around quick again due to a few more tracks completing together.. (This is actually the first of three things ready to be released, so expect more soon).

I’m trying to cut my costs by dropping the web hosting, so this will be my first attempt at using Bandcamp, and also in due course soundcloud and internetdj.

Expect some future adjustments to see what works (for you and me).. and to fix the podcast.

cheers for listening!

t00nz – Melon

Here is a new track. I nearly held this one back.. it was a little bit ‘damned with faint praise’ elsewhere, but I think it is ok and that only makes me want to try harder anyway. I mentioned before I’ve been distracted from music a bit, maybe it shows in this. I do need to pick up a new direction soon as I’m not satisfied with my output recently. Hmm .. anyway, have a listen..maybe let me know what you think.. more music to come very soon of course. take care.

p.s. I’m letting my hosting die in a few weeks to free up the cash it requires.. I’ll try releasing onto a free host soon instead. There maybe some disruption in download availability.

t00nz – Scanner

After the last couple of tracks this is positively in your face..

“More noise, this time percussive” – hows that for quality liner notes!

Hope you enjoy.

t00nz – happy me happy you

This is a bit of a dark and grungy track..  One of a couple of tracks ready to post now after a particularly productive couple of days (first drought then downpour huh!)…

Recently bought Synplant which is turning out to be a really useful synth for what I do. It features in this track and the next, and along with uTonic is quickly becoming indispensible (much credit to sonic charge)

The vocal synthesizer is aquestone.

t00nz – transmissions

This has been a WIP in progress for some months, and changed sounds quite a lot (original idea was to use mainly FM sounds, but it didnt work out this time). Distorted percussion is FM8, accompanied by the great uTonic. Albino and some other synths play the parts.
