Kristoffer Lislegaard - Pocket EP

Pocket is an EP by Kristoffer Lislegaard released originally on cassette and Bandcamp in 2012. In June 2022 it was re-released on streaming.

“My instrument were acoustic and electric guitar with some distortion pedals going into Ableton Live, controlled with midi controllers.

The first three tracks were recorded live to a small stereo recorder. The last track was made by recording acoustic guitar into the internal microphone on my old Macbook and then processed in Ableton Live and combined with a field recording. Pretty DIY workflow you could say. A decade later I am surprised the EP sounds as good as it does!

Another fun fact is that the track Ostrich is made by tuning all the strings on my acoustic guitar to the same note. This is called ostrich tuning. When I recorded this track I had to have an audio cable in my pants to stop the setup from making noise. The appartment had a grounding issue… You can see a video from when I was recording this track below.”

I made a little video announcing the re-release. In this video I also go into some details around the production of the ep. Check it out on Youtube.
