End-of-year Album is done, done and done! Some of these tracks where posted individually here before, but this is a curated set of a year’s worth an electronic improvisation journey. Bandcamp version here, but also up on the usual streaming services - and physical CD in production. Whew!
And then I found the video of my original take of carillion so, you know, here you go, and here’s the state of my instrument at the end of the year:
I’m enjoying the Euclidean Rhythm capabilities of Teletype. This was while we were on vacation in the Redwoods. An inspiring place!

Because it’s the 31st of December and it’s been a long and tiring year, I’ll lower my defense a bit and share some of my work here. This is a live video recorded in a studio of a song called “Kindness”, it felt like the right word to conclude 2016, and prepare 2017. Not much else to say about it. Thank you, to all of you really.
Ha! That is awesome!
Only change I made was to the notes in the trackers. Interesting the variations we can get from a single scene.
Yea, I want to make another stab at it and achieve more randomness in how the second column of notes gets interjected into the melody stream.
Ice Music: Year's First Project (Disquiet Junto 0262)
live performance. an ambient+drone improvisation for modular, effects, and field recordings from a winter vacation in the southwest. sparrows and crows stirring, icicles shattering, snowclumps falling from bushes, the trickle of tiny drops. little worlds thawing.
patch notes: monome+mannequins modules all around. a rhodes '73 improvisation, played from the radiomusic module, runs through mutable instruments clouds. clouds params are modulated with just friends envelopes and cold mac scratchy random noise. monophonic melodic swells are played with earthsea and grid, controlling mangrove through three sisters and the -isms spring reverb tank, then into strymon tape delay and reverb pedals. the winter sounds, originally captured with a zoom h5+SGH6 capsule mic, are played back with the cassette tape deck.
this is my final song for weekly beats 2016. last song of the year; fifty-two straight weeks of tracks.
Not necessarily the latest, but I’ve been putting a lot up that was recorded in the last 2 or so years. Feels good to get it off my mind/out in the world. Hope you enjoy. Happy new year everybody
My latest, a foray into some dub techno:
Currently working on another one in this series.
Also felt like having some fun with @dudadius TT script. Made a couple of other changes, and roped in a bunch of random from a turing machine and wogglebug.
First patch of the year! Been playing with my christmas present: the euro version of the Eowave Domino. There are some dropouts in the recording due to dirty tape, so might record another take tomorrow.
Here’s what was going to be the second of my MonoDub series, but it went sideways and turned out more involved than I expected:
a couple of new ones
