"Cruvsa Dristrop" is an album of pieces ("songs") created between mid July and mid August 2019 using Mixcraft and Soundplant programs on a Lenovo computer. The titles of the album and the songs are nonsense words that I adapted from surrealist poems that I wrote. They are meaningless and are meant only to identify the tracks. The basic tracks are a combination of prefabricated public domain loops (drums and instrument phrases, mostly edited and recombined) and original elements using virtual (sampled) instruments in Mixcraft. Soundplant was used to add sampled elements such as prepared piano, glitch electronics, orchestral brass, and female voice (sliced and recombined individual phonemes from an English phrase tutorial).
In this album I spent much more time than I usually do fine-tuning, adjusting, editing, and polishing the tracks. Now that I am retired from a day-to-day job that I had I have much more free time to work on music.
The front cover image is four lines of text that read Tom/Furgas/Cruvsa/Dristrop, typed using the "Bookshelf Symbol 7" font in the GIMP program I used to create the covers.
The album is free to be downloaded and burned to CD (which I recommend to make listening more convenient).
