kinetoscope five :: 013 :: kinetoscope?

At some point I figure someone out there has wondered about me using the word "kinetoscope". I don't remember where I ran across the name, but when I wrote a series of tracks that were very minimal techno - "drums n feedback"... kinetoscope one, kinetoscope two, kinetoscope three... just 'fit'.  I wrote these back in 2002 or maybe 2003. And had planned on releasing an album under the title kinetoscope. I don't have the title track on my soundcloud - but I do have another track from that time frame and also totally recorded live in one take - and is only drums and feedback (there are no synths).

I've never released the album, but have shared the unfinished version with friends - as in 2004 I began my 7 year hiatus from  music.

So a kinetoscope is an early motion picture device - pre-1900. The photo is from this wikipedia page:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinetoscope

I'm fascinated by music and film and photography and the word kinetoscope resonates with me.  I'd decided to name my studio kinetoscope as well... and added the "five" because I wanted to distinguish my studio from the original. This series of blogs is essentially me talking about music, from my studio.

Maybe it's time to revisit that LP, and finish it if you think it needs any more - and solicit contributions from willing peeps if you're so inclined, hint hint. This track could stand a few slightly-minimal trumpet loops...

Great studio name!

Actually - it was mastered just this year by a friend - so I may do a minimal release for it.  Maybe. It's a sound that is nearly a decade old for me now, though...  so more of a peek into the history books than a what I am now sort of release.  Not that that's a bad thing necessarily.  :-)

 

Finding the mastered disc now that I've moved... now *that* could be a problem!
