This FREE GIVEAWAY is the unedited (and here and there slightly distorted) recording of my* first session toying around with some new equipment I bought just recently - a little synthesizer, a couple of guitar effect pedals, and a reverb / echo processor.
I also used three older synthesizers (in a slightly modified setting, though).

Sometimes, there is a certain magic when you use a piece of equipment for the very first time, and not really knowing what you're gonne do, you end up doing things that sound cool, but for whatever reason never can be repeated exactly in the same way ever after. Keeping that in mind, I switched the record button on and just started to merrily tinker around.

Indeed (while most of the jam doesn't have a lot of novelty value really) such a moment happend when after about 25 minutes I stopped playing and, just about stopping the tapes, found the sound of a delay with a lot of feedback that was still running on its own after the other notes had stopped quite appealing; so I decided to tweak the controls of the corresponding device a little - which resulted in the echo thingy actually starting to sing like a lady (well, somewhat...). I was fascinated and tried to add again more elements to enhance and develop the atmosphere that seemed to have grown on it's own, and for some minutes, a quite fascinating space ambient soundscape was blooming and booming...

I've added this last section as a seperate cut (it's identical with the ending of the long track, I just wanted listeners to have the chance to listen to it without all the other noodling...).

Anyway - it was fun to play that, and I hope some of the fun comes across... :-)

Since some people will ask, below is the (probably boring) list of (actually rather humble) devices I used...
