N:CK – Temporary Ep

Temporary Ep by N:CK is the new work of the young Nicolò Temperini on Pyteca record. The music has been realized with the idea of approaching the future with „essential“ working methods and tools (old School) a bit like it was done in the 90s before that
technologies invaded. Three works that have in common the „Acid“ bassline of the famous Roland TB303, accompanied by the drum machines iconic of those years, namely a Roland TR 909, a Roland TR 707 and a Roland TR 606.

„Temporary is an EP based on a well-founded idea. The idea was to release something using „essential” instruments/machine and work methods, a bit like it was done in the past years, before technologies and ease of use invaded and changed the way to approach studio productions. Three works that share the „Acid“ sound of a Roland TB303 accompanied by three iconic Drum Machines of those years, as a Roland TR 909, a Roland TR 707 and a Roland TR 606. Also the recording was interesting, all the sounds of 1.AM were recorded first on tape with an AKAI GX4000D, this because I wanted to get a particular saturation thought for this track. With 2.AM and 5.AM I used classical recording methods, machine/instrument – Mixer- Sound Card – Computer. Then I did a precise work of sound design using several instruments, for example SSL preamplifiers, parametric equalizers, analog compressors. On track 2.AM there aren’t rhythms, the only rhythm part is a noise generator, processed and modulated with my modular system. As third we have 5.AM, my favourite work of this Ep. Here there are two instruments, a TR 909 and TB 303 . A very „essential“ track, but Iʼve decided to edit it this way because I wanted something simple but that would „stay“ in the listener’s head.The Visual for this track has been done by Videosolid, my partner for my parallel A/V project called NVS. All the recording and mixing were made at LRS FACTORY, the studio where I still work, also the final mastering was done here, by the mastering engineer and owner of the studio „Luigi Di Filippo” to which I entrust all my works.“
