Disquiet Junto Project 0096: Metal Machine Muse

After another long delay, this week’s Disquiet Junto project is a tribute to Lou Reed, who passed away earlier this week. His album Metal Machine Music from 1975 is a classic early noise endeavor. His influence on my entire musical career is significant and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create something for this fairly straightforward project. Using the phrase “Metal Machine Muse” as the guide, I created my own tribute to Metal Machine Music. At least one actual metal had to be used in the work, and I used a number, each detailed below.

Information:

Metal. Strings (Nickel wound, D’Addario), Screwdriver (Chrome Vanadium, Homebase), Coin (Cupro-Nickel 2010-vintage 10 pence)

Various lines recorded (glissando, bowed, picked using the coin) into Ableton Live, looped, mixed in Logic Pro 9. Some granular delays, but fairly simple.
