HB01 – a new piece of music

I hardly ever get time to do anything musical these days but I had occasion to try out a new microphone. Rather than sing or play the guitar, I was just messing about and came up with some percussive sounds that I used to form the human beatbox in this new (very experimental) track. I’m not taking it any further than this because I enjoyed the discipline of making something in less than an hour; it’s fresh enough to be rough around the edges, but sounds good enough to leave it be!

The synth bass and ‘pads’ are done on the Moog synth and the other pad sound is a recording of ambient sounds in the London Underground that I made a few years ago.
