Song 4 is microtonal, in 10 TET.
Explanation of the title. I used a ring modulator to alter some sound on every song. Never used one before. Here’s what a ring modulator is.
Ring Mods can be hardware or software. Mine is software. I animated the perimeters (trigger frequency and volume mostly) over time on most songs.
Got the cover art here, is by Frik of Indonesia. I replaced butterfly the cat was grabbing with circuit schematic (of a ring modulator):

1 thought on ““RING MODULATE ME ALL NIGHT LONG” – Album 78 by BipTunia. LISTEN FREE.”
Not sure when I first heard BIPTUNIA’s music, or how I got introduced to it, but I’ve been a fan for several years now. They describe their sound as “electronic music that doesn’t suck” and I have to agree, because I keep coming back to it.
I am not a musician or a legit music critic so I don’t really have the words to describe their sound, except to say that it drives along at a nice pace, kind of easily frantic, and puts me in mind of something kind of Zappa-eque, in that it seems to have some compositional complexity behind it. I’m also not into dancing (though I like EDM) but I’d imagine this isn’t music you’d dance to, but instead would listen to in order to trigger certain “visual sequences” in your pre-installed biological movie-making software. At least, that’s what happens to me when I listen to BIPTUNIA’s music.
It’s the work not of mad scientists, but rather GLAD scientists! The music has a kind of happy, manic energy to it, but it’s definitely NOT pop, no…rather, something all it’s own.
