PRAGMAGIK #3 (IT BEGINS)

PRAGMAGIK started principle tracking with co-producer RYAN STIVELY at his SAUCESOME STUDIOS here in Portland, OR.

We began by making a library of junk percussion.  Recording small samples of STIVELY and I hitting various found items.  I then took those samples and sequenced the album’s accompanying rhythms using RECYCLE and REASON. Taking a track of sequenced percussion, we re-amped through a MARANTZ PORTABLE CASSETTE RECORDER to utilize the tape’s saturation and adjustable speed.

I then went on to track some fuzz bass.

I laid down a soft electric, accompanied by a bright acoustic:

Followed by minimal drums to accompany the sequencing

The found tape I was using for saturation provided some ghostly samples
