yeah I think next time I record anything I'll turn up the recorder volume
but that static/buzzing is pretty annoying though, hopefully that doesn't make it worse

thanks for checking it out though man, I got your newest tape but gotta give it a listen still

for whatever reason I still do this, it's just really weird to me to play something and then hear it back

it's also really weird that my play style changes when I know I'm recording myself, in the sense that I don't really experiment with it as much

I'd like to say I'm improving but it's hard to tell lol

I obviously need to up my production/record through the comp if I ever want to get serious with it

the more I do it the less I play the keyboard and just change tempos/sounds.  hard as fuck on something that doesn't have like "half time" options or whatever, moving the tempo buttons while youre playing is hard as fuck to make it sound smooth in transitions.

 

the funny thing is that I think I've recorded on a different keyboard for every Hosewheel I've made

only this latest one is my own personal keyboard that I got at a garage sale for like $10

there's really only like 4-5 tones out of 100 on it that I don't think sound awful, so this is definitely the least amount Ive done playing keys

 

if anyone wants to check it out with honest feedback that's cool, I have it linked up in my signature

 

if this shit had album notes it would probably say that I recorded this in a near empty room sitting on my bed the last night before I moved out

I was in the packing process and I lost my power cord and was totally distraught until I realized casios take AA batteries

I called it Bowls & Batteries for that reason (cuz I also got rly high loading bowls in the dark)

the album art is the first interesting image I found after searching 'bowls & batteries', then I just slightly altered it

 

 

here's a track i uploaded from it

ending kinda sucks but I liked the groove

 

 

plz check it out and let me know what you think if you got time

some spotty parts but I really dig some of the transitions in "Knucklehead"
