Original Samples

Everything "handmade"


As I am in some kind of melancholic mood, I'm listening to a lot of quiet music (Trip-Hop etc). Therefore I found an old album from Charlotte Gainsbourg (5:55), wonderful music. Cigi's voice sounds similar and I started to play around with my guitar. Some when, I got lost in a Blues style, no idea why. Finally I just record everything and put it together. Drums are from Ableton, which I modified just a bit. Synths at last, ready.

Other Notes
