UNKNOWN CONTINUA LEFTOVER
Ian C Stewart "Unknown Continua Leftover" MP3
SICK BEATS POWER MAGIC LEISURE ODYSSEY
Here's a cool find from the second homeless work cassette in the pile. Looks like it's just most of side two of the 1998 Samarkand cassette Continua.
Continua was my first public dabblings in sampling and looping and cutting and pasting. It's a mess of XTC, Coolio, Bill Laswell and Pantera samples. I thought it sounded like futuristic pop music. I did the whole thing on Cool Edit still, most likely on the fly. Not saving a single thing along the way to the hard drive.
This track is ghouly bass playing by me along with a popular drum & bass loop blasting away behind me. That's drum & bass the genre, not just a raw rhythm section.
I don't think this piece was ever released. I totally forgot about it until just now. Strange.
It lives at the end of side one of the work tape & gets cut off at the end. Was this thing just filler? I don't know! It does rock like a you-know-what, though.
