"Costa Rica" (w 8 bonus field recordings) added to drip.fm/eskmo - In Feb 2013 I traveled to Costa Rica for a 7 day retreat in the jungle. These are some of the recordings I took as well as a song I made that was inspired by the trip. Feel free to use the samples as you wish and I hope you enjoy.
Originally released 2 months ago via my subscription service at www.drip.fm/eskmo
Recorded in Aspen Colorado as I was stuck for a few days during a snow storm in early 2014.
6 field recordings are included alongside the single "Aspen" and were made using a Sony PCM-D50. Have fun and do whatever you like with them. If there are any points with wind distortion, one technique I do is to cut out all the lows and layer that shuddering distortion on top of another synth or drum sound.
New: My 2nd piece of music written for www.TheEchoSociety.com called "Perspective." This was performed live with a 12 piece chamber ensemble in LA back in June. Check the new Echo site, big things in store for 2015.
"The rise and fall, is all perspective."
New remix I wrote for David Douglas out now. SOUNDLCOUD
