The Era of Fake News

Saturday, February 18th, 2017


The Era of Fake News was done by using a 70’s fuzz pedal with a cardioid mic to sample gongs, cymbals, singing bowls and chimes. These samples were then loaded into Sonar’s Matrix View and used to create a performance which was captured. Massive reverb was added.


The Era of Fake News Sanatized is the same track using Paul’s Extreme Stretch’s tonal only switch – no time stretching.

If you want to sample it – please give me a credit and link back.
