All Your Clothes Still Smell Like Gasoline

It’s been a while since I have posted anything to this blog. It has been a while since I have had anything to write that was interesting about what SvenMusic is doing.  I have created a section of SvenMusic called V O T it is an offshoot that focuses only on remixing. The first project for V O T has been a remix of Elsinore’s song “Gasoline.” I ended up creating 3 remixes for Elsinore:

RMXS: GASOLINE : 2 C8H18 + 25 O2 → 16 CO2 + 18 H2O

|::  Deflagration RMX  ::| 6m34s

Decycled remix uses only the existing material from the original tracks.

|::  Winterized RMX  ::| 8m01s

Using only the soft synths in cakewalk and drum machine.  The accompaniment is all new material with new chord structures and utilizing E-minor as the relative minor.

|::  Choke RMX   ::| 6m54s

With the exception of the drums and vocals all additional material is performed by sven.


These are available for download at: http://elsinore.bandcamp.com/album/svens-gasoline-trio -proceeds benefit Imerman Angels!


Working with raw tracks is a lot like taking an anatomy class, but at the end you have to choose the anatomical parts and make them into a new person. I learned so much about what went into creating Elsinore’s YES YES YES album.  “Gasoline” itself was ~139 tracks and none of the tracks seemed unnecessary it is a surprisingly layered recording.


I never thought that I would make it through all of the material and remix the song in such a way that would honor the original, I hope I succeeded.  I am excited to see where this goes.
