Hello. I am Sam.
I wrote and recorded this in 1 day as a musical experiment to try and step out of my comfort zone and try something different. My intent was to create a wall of sound, that starts mellow and gets more harsh as the EP goes along, using saxophone run through effects as the main instrument, with songs that are interconnected despite their (at times) drastic differences.
If you give it a listen, even if you don’t like it, thank you so much for just taking the time to check it out. Feedback is always welcome and greatly appreciated.
Here is a direct link to the bandcamp.
I like the fact that you’re moving out of your comfort zone for creating music. I would had enjoyed being able to hear some older material of yours to get an idea of where you’re coming from, but I was unable to find anything other than this album. Regardless, I hope you continue to have fun experimenting and figuring out which style of music suits you the best.
I’m really a fan of the two songs ”Vicodin Eyelids” and "Mush/Crush". These are the kind of songs I would listen to if I were to hang out by the beach at night.
Death in the City Streets
New Release - Greg Surges ‘Feld’
About the recording:
Feld is a generative, real-time composition which combines computer-controlled homebrew synthesis hardware with custom software signal processing. New sounds and textures continually emerge from the dense, intricately layered stream.
Feld was conceived of as an open-ended sound experience: these three hour-long recordings are meant to be experienced creatively and interactively by the listener. They can be played simultaneously, reordered, heard in fragments, or in any other combination.
Greg Surges makes electronic music, software, and hardware. His work has been released on the Petcord, Wandering Ear, and Digitalbiotope labels, and his research and music have been presented at the International Computer Music Conference in Belfast, Ireland, NIME 2012, the SPARK Festival in Minneapolis, and the 2010 SEAMUS National Conference. He is currently a PhD student at the University of California, San Diego. Previously, he earned a MM in Music Composition and a BFA in Music Composition and Technology at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. He currently lives in San Diego, CA with his wife and cat.
