“Losting” with Mark Rushton

A display of the recent iOS app Samplr

Following up an app-related note in an earlier post here, Iowa-based musician Mark Rushton has posted another example of his work with the Samplr tool, a recently released app for the iOS operating system. The track is titled “Losting,” and it’s a slowly undulating bit of atmospheric effluence. Writes Rushton of the core of the track’s development: “It’s based around a melodic ostinato, and while the motif repeats over and over you’ll hear things changing in the background ever so slightly.” The result is like a miasma with a pulse, a threadbare haze that comes and goes with the elegance of a fragile, rotating machine. Oh, and he recommends good headphones.
