"Cryptkicker" [mp3 removed]
I may do some more variations on this (minimal techno) piece. For the non-drum parts, I picked three (licensed!) samples that I thought were just exquisite and gave each its own track in the sequencer and its own octave for keymapping. The bass seems to go slightly out of phase because I left in all the trial balloons that eventually led to the main groove, sprinkling them in more or less randomly into the main sequence. The piano chords are appallingly simple and eventually I'd like to add some juicier melodies. The synth stab I left as is, because it sounds so seductively weird and funny.
