Nisennenmondai #6 remixed by Chris Carter - 2016

Exclusive track from the Adrian Sherwood sessions which produced their recent album. The original version of #6 is a dub-strafed subway ride through abandoned tunnels, a haunted Philip K. Dick alternate past where Joy Division cut live techno tunes with Scientist. On the flip, Chris Carter adds heavy machine funk and saturated bomb damage FX, re-arranging the component parts into a dance floor jammer from the death factory.

Flip Flop - Chris Carter track from the album ‘Interpretations On F.C. Judd’ - 2013

In January 2012 Public Information released a 35-track compendium of F.C. Judd’s music and sound, it was called Electronics Without Tears. Fast forward to Spring 2013 and they are back with Fred for a very special LP to reignite his legacy. For the tenth release they asked some of our favourite artists working today to submit a reinterpretation of the greatly undervalued early electronics pioneer, Frederick Charles Judd. Public Information gave them Fred’s entire archive of sounds, tone experiments, field recordings and lectures and left it up them to produce an audio artefact befitting of Judd himself.

CCCL LepLoop Experiment - 2010

The LepLoop - I’ve used a lot of synths over the years but this one is something different…  it's a strange instrument. It's small, much smaller than it appears in photos: it is part synth, part drum machine, part multi-track sequencer. I'm still figuring it all out but initial impressions are that it's very unpredictable and slightly unstable… but in a good way. I had a few issues with it sometimes refusing to work and also it has a tendency to pick up stray signals from my iPhone and iPad if they are anywhere near it. But when it works it is quite rewarding to use and is capable of some amazing sounds - if mildly frustrating trying get it to do what I think it 'should' be able to do - but I will persevere. If you like wonderful experimental noises - accompanied by a simple rhythm (although I'm sure it's very capable of a lot more) then this little unit could be for you.
The LepLoop may become part of my CCCL experimental arsenal and will most likely get seconded into the upcoming Throbbing Gristle experimental sets in October/November 2010.
The short sound example here was performed without a keyboard, just using the internal sequencer and some real-time tweakery. The outputs were processed with a couple of Eventide pedals for some 'tape delay' & reverb.

UPDATE: Apparently my LepLoop is a prototype, which accounts some of the 'issues' I had with it - the production version should run fine.


TipTop Boss - 2010

This track is basically a TipTop Z8000 sequencer controlling a Z-DSP module, a Z2040 VCF & a Z5000 VCDSP module. The audio source is a Boss DR-220E Dr.Rhythm, which is also triggering the Z8000 sequencer from its programmable Trig output. Other modules used were a MFB Dual LFO- to change the direction of the sequencer and a Doepfer Dual VCA modulated by two Doepfer VCOs to add a little ring-mod'ish timbre.

no MIDI no keyboards - 2010

Low key live improv.
Equipment used:
Two Kaossilators, two mini Kaoss pads, a KP3 Kaoss pad, a Tom Bugs WOM synth, Chimera BC8, BC9 and BC16 synths, two Zoom PFX-9003 effects, an Eventide Modfactor, an Eventide Timefactor, a Dirty-Carter E.S.G.I synth, a portable Edirol mixer and a Zoom H2 for recording. No MIDI, keyboards, laptops or desktop computers were used.
Rhythms were generated by the two Kaossilators - going through the mini KPs, bass loops were generated by the KP3. The Chimera BC16 synth (LFO and ADSR) was voltage controlling the BC9 synth and the two Eventide stompboxes. All loop syncing and BPM matching was done on the fly using 'tap-tempo' on the Korgs and Eventides. A photo of the recording set-up can be viewed here:

While Waiting - 2010

This is another track I recorded on a bed, in my hotel room, while on a trip to Leicester to perform at the first Dirty-Carter event. It's just me improvising using some of the gear and some sounds I would later use for the Dirty-Carter performance with some low level looping courtesy of my iPhone.

Equipment used:
a regular Kaossilator, a circuit-bent Kaossilator, two mini Kaoss pads, a Tom Bugs WOM micro synth, a Chimera BC8 micro synth, two Zoom PFX-9003 effects, a Boss DSD-2 sampler/delay, a Dirty-Carter E.S.G.I, an iPhone for loop playback, portable Edirol mixer and a Zoom H2 recorder. No laptops or desktop computers were used in the recording.

This Train - 2010

This track was recorded on a bed, in my hotel room, while on a trip to Leicester to perform at the first Dirty-Carter event. It's just me improvising using some of the gear and some sounds I would later use for the Dirty-Carter performance. The voice and ambience is from a nearby train station and was recorded out of the hotel window and played back on my iPhone. The inclusion of the Tannoy station announcements was partly inspired by listening to 'Music For Real Airports' on the journey to Leicester.
Equipment used:
a regular Kaossilator, a circuit-bent Kaossilator, two mini Kaoss pads, a Tom Bugs WOM micro synth, a Chimera BC8 micro synth, two Zoom PFX-9003 effects, a Boss DSD-2 sampler/delay, a Dirty-Carter E.S.G.I, an iPhone for field recording playback, portable Edirol mixer and a Zoom H2 recorder. No laptops or desktop computers were used in the recording.

Haz Chem (beta3) - 2007

This was the first track I 'officially' recorded as part of my CCCL project (aka: Chris Carter's Chemistry Lessons). It was made in 2007 with a Gameboy ASP running a couple of Nanoloop sequences: into a Boss PQ-4 parametric EQ, mono out: into a Boss PN-2 Panner (square-wave pan setting), stereo out: into a Boss RV-5 reverb (Gate setting), stereo out > into a Boss DD-6 digital delay (modified), stereo out: into a Mac G5 recording (via MOTU 828 mkII audio interface) into Apple Soundtrack Pro. All realtime tweakery (mostly the PQ-4 + DD-6) and no post-pro no editing.

Experimental Tribute - 2009

This is a tribute I made - as part of my CCCL project (aka: Chris Carter's Chemistry Lessons) - to the experimental work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop who recently staged a performance in London, that I couldn't attend. All the sounds and loops originate from a BC8 synth, a Gakken SX-150 synth and three BugBrand Weevil synths. All the effects and processing is done with Boss pedals. Oh yeah... and I did the whole thing 'upside down'.
