alt-alt

Yes, of course Donald Trump makes an appearance, as do some of his allies and supporters, in samples ripped from various Internet videos.

"Dolly's Tree" includes Internet content which some people may consider disturbing and/or inappropriately used.

This album was produced on a Windows 10 laptop (Lenovo ideapad FLEX 4), using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB interface. Not having used the Cockos REAPER DAW software for some time, I retreated to Windows versions of Audacity and LMMS when I should have stayed in REAPER. Most recording was done through Audacity, but I used REAPER for mixing and rendering of all tracks. I used LMMS for the MIDI-softsynth backing track for "Stability".

The current configuration of the modular synthesizer used by Gliftor Draken is pictured below. With the addition of the Mutable Instruments "Ears" audio input module, all electric guitar parts could be recorded directly through the synth. Guitar distortion is provided by the 3-axis wavetable section of the Harvestman "Piston Honda" oscillator.

I don't remember where I found the image I swiped for the "album cover," but it seems to exemplify the alt-alt lifestyle (whatever that might be) as well as anything else could.
