Disquiet 0240, Centrifuge


First Disquiet Junto for me! Really wanted to do one for a while now. It had a pretty good reception!

Here I’ve started with an empty centrifuge turning on and humming. It’s an empty machine while I recorded it, no samples, no test tubes, but it spins and drones anyway. On top of that I layer some synths that build into the sound. Lots of reverb and EQ work on all portions.

Slowly the synths come out with FX changes, which really describes the internal workings of the centrifuge. The deeper down you go to more mechanical and dangerous the machine is; it is meant for separating the heavy from the light at the tiniest level, after all.
