How do I make new folk music?
posted by brautigan to media & arts (12 answers total) 4 users marked this as a favorite
I write and play folk music but also very much love electronica and would love to combine the two al la Tunng
etc. This year I'd like to make folk influenced music using simple acoustic instruments (guitar, jews harp, autoharp, harmonica, zither etc) but would also like to run it all through technology. I have a spare room, an ibook and powerbook at my disposal as well as access to bootleg copies of most major music making software.
Question: what would you add to this and what else do I require to make some home-made, lo-fi but fine sounding music? Suggestions as to effects, hardware, software, links to basic techiniques etc most welcome.
