Music releases by Chorist.
released November 16, 2020
Three sound worlds, created in early 2020 Austin. East of Airport, in the back of a metalworking studio.
Each track is just that: a single chosen path through a landscape. Continuously circling a body; different aspects revealed with each revolution.
"Late Austin" is three live recordings, made direct to a stereo recorder, to add an element of intuition to a form that is often planned out on a timeline and edited after the fact.
The tracks are made using the Analog Rytm (drum machine) and the Octatrack (sampler and effects), playing together in real-time. The sounds on the Octatrack are mostly samples from the Yamaha FS1R and Roland XV-5050 synthesizers, designed using software made by the artist.
released December 3, 2019
An exploration of intuitive track structure using a hardware sequencer, two synthesizers, and a drum machine.
Recorded in a small back room in Austin, Texas. There was no computer in that room, but there was a refrigerator: humming.
