  THE CHI FACTORY - Red Lantern at the Kallkatsou (ASTRAL INDUSTRIES)
THE CHI FACTORY - Red Lantern at the Kallkatsou  (ASTRAL INDUSTRIES)  The Chi Factory remixing Deepchord! "I've never met Rod Modell (Deepchord) in person, but we have met through music. He found an obscure cassette of Chi music (from 1986), sent it to Astral Industries and paved the way for the release (thirty years later) of 'The Original Recordings' in 2016. Since then, we've exchanged ideas and good music, sending Rod a preview of 'The Kallikatsou Recordings' - he really liked it - and here came the idea for a remix of 'Lanterns'. I started working on some random, lo-fi samples from Youtube, using Audacity, perhaps the simplest way of producing loops and samples. It's the only computer-based system that feels like the tape recorders I used to work with. I sent the first sketches to Rod on Facebook, but they ended up in the wrong inbox. I forgot about them, but months later he came back saying he loved them. I decided to go back to working on them, maintaining the lo-fi approach. I began manipulating the samples: time-stretching, tempo and pitch-shifting, mixing different layers and adding old-school monophonic 'old speaker' effects, delays and loops. I used a few field recordings, voices and samples from my early ambient cassettes, and they matched. Ario from Astral Industries got involved and the experiment turned into a plan - a vinyl release - 'Red Lantern at the Kallkatsou'."
