dryades

Been awhile… Made a release: Some of the sounds used are re-purposed sounds made awhile back. ¬†Other sources are (layered) guitar, processed through (variants of) an Audiomulch patch, from the same timeframe. Lots of retrograde in the Air. Seems appropriate to have appropriated these past sounds, just about now. Also ironic: It was known, then, […]

new release: the chaldean social club

In Mid-November, five titles occurred to me. Just the titles. From then on until mid-January, I made tracks to match the names. The result: About 20 core sounds involved. More than a few of them remixed/repurposed from pre-existing material. Released under Creative Commons license (non-commercial/attribution/share-alike).

New Bandcamp Release: Ghosted

Finally had a chance for final mastering and upload of this, my second bandcamp release: This is best described as a self-remix piece. The core sound materials were produced in the period 2001-2004. Some of these were fully-formed pieces in their own right (e.g. a version of comes pale horse, from 2002; and an unused […]

update (release notes, basically)

This week’s exercise (disquiet0055-twoscrews) had us rework two pieces (Do and Re) from Nils Frahm’s Screws: Done with Ableton Live (yes, still stuck back in 5.2.2) and Audacity. Project details […]

Bandcamp release: Outside

I’ve set up a site on Bandcamp. The first release is an album of two pieces based on work from 2003. I had been lurking on the old microsound mailing list, and a thread on capturing environmental sounds inspired me to try my own hand at making an altered/found-sound piece. There are a number of […]
