Sinatra remix – Come Fly With Me

May 6, 2012

Here’s a remix of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Come fly with me’ I did for choreographer Nikki O’Hara. The dance piece it accompanies featured in the final year show at Bird College in 2011, and at the recent Move It dance festival/expo at Olympia in April 2012.

Was an interesting challenge to work with a piece of music that wasn’t recorded to a click-track. Ask me about how awesome Logic’s time-stretch functionality “Flextime” is for the full story.

I can’t embed a SoundCloud style file due to copyright issues – BORING! – so here’s an mp3 instead:

(It starts getting tasty around the 1:45 mark…)

Hence, I’ve had to pull the jack plug half way out of the 3.5mm adaptor, as you can see on the lowest cable below:

And same on the CV input on the Moog side – jack has to be pulled out half-way so the tip makes contact with the ring sheath:

This is reminding me a great deal of the Fry & Laurie sketch, Flushed Grollings.

But it’s cos I just bought the (surprisingly expensive) silver box above, which now connects the Moog to the computer so that I can sequence the Moog using Logic. Huzzah.

Now enjoy to the power of analogue in the mp3 below. A nothing riff really, but we get into Soulwax/LFO territory quite easily…

Note: if you are planning on this activity yourself, I’m very happy to recommend System J for the hard-to-get-hold-of “Cinch Jones 2 prong plug to 3.5mm jack cable” that is required.  (A 50/50 split on all afiliate sales, didn’t we say James? ;-)
