Subliminal Message
SampleCD: 22 Jan 2001
By: JoelPutman

Joel Putman's sample CD Subliminal Message is now available from As president Scott Peer puts it, "Once again, Joel produces magical incantations over his Kyma System, and delivers a collection of amazing digital effects." Joel describes his CD as "...inspired by music from Skinny Puppy, NIN, Meat Beat Manifesto, and the movie Seven. I really wanted samples that had a harsh industrial quality, definitely not soothing or quiet. I made considerable use of sample granulation to produce textures and noises that have a certain rough and jarring quality. Granulation was used for many of the rhythmic samples as well—note that most of the rhythmic samples can be synced to a multiple of 20 bpm—FM and AM synthesis methods were used extensively to give many of the sounds hard metallic overtones. Some the samples were generated using additive—additive resynthesis methods and all of the samples were processed heavily using fairly standard processes such as reverb, phasing, flanging, and delays. In the end it makes for a collection of odd industrialesque samples."
