FTRK #9 = "Snakes" by One Infinite Loop
Snakes - One Infinite Loop (2010)
(Free Download on Soundcloud Player)
At first listen, One Infinite Loop sounded like a modded Atari 2600 to the sound of classic IDM. The buzzes, cracks, beeps, clicks and boops the song makes is obviously minimalistic and abstract beyond the concept of mainstream music. I've had many friends and some family members complain to me about how aggravating the sounds were. But to me, they're very relaxing. To hear out and feel the texture of sound at its base feels beautiful, and One Infinite Loop certainly does this well. The music was composed on iElectribe, an app available for the iPad through Korg. The Soundcloud website offers free downloads of the rest of the album under a Creative Commons share-alike license.
