In mid-2011, after several years of only using software synthesis, glOOmyART decided that it's time to invest in some hardware gear. By the end of September he acquired two of Elektron's machines; the Monomachine SFX MKII and the Octatrack DSP-1, after he saw the first one in action on some Sauna Sound productions.
After about 2 months, in which he was not very pleased with how he set the two up on a table in the glOOmySTUDIO, he bought a small 19-inch-rack to unite them in one place and on a fixed routing. In addition he put a splitter/mixer in the rack to be able to route a guitar through the machines for fx-purposes while having the capability to let it sound clean without the need to replug everything.
Now! To get used to this new setup and to gain some routine in producing, glOOmyART came up with the idea to work on a daily basis and to release whatever would be accomplished by christmas 2011 as a christmas gift to fans and family, hence the name for the EP.
So all the sounds you hear are generated and/or processed by these two machines, except for the guitar sounds which were created using a Line6 Variax JTV-69.
All Tracks are recorded live and not edited or mastered at all. They were only normalized on 0db.
Tracks 5 and 6 were recorded before conceiving the concept.
released 24 December 2011
