The Era of Fake News

Saturday, February 18th, 2017


The Era of Fake News was done by using a 70’s fuzz pedal with a cardioid mic to sample gongs, cymbals, singing bowls and chimes. These samples were then loaded into Sonar’s Matrix View and used to create a performance which was captured. Massive reverb was added.


The Era of Fake News Sanatized is the same track using Paul’s Extreme Stretch’s tonal only switch – no time stretching.

If you want to sample it – please give me a credit and link back.

Capturing Paul (Acousmatic in Adaptive Just Intonation via Melodyne)

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Capturing Paul
What I did was modified Paul Mimlitsch’s prepared guitar track posted to Sound-In. In detail I deleted the highest and lowest notes, and retuned to 22 edo. Then I tuned it to 12 equal whole tone, and then to adaptive just intonation. I normalized the perceived tempo and then quantized the notes to triplet 16th and eight notes. Then I “pulled” the notes to be about 300% longer than originally. Lastly I used the Melodyne spectrum manipulation to kill all harmonics greater than #8. That made the sound a lot purer and a bit like brass in the final result.

September (JI Ambient)

september_christiane


September – a collaboration of Christiane Offenbar, Meolog, and myself. All of the audio is derived from Christiane’s singing of Meolog’s poem which is below. The processing created tracks that were based on harmonic series started on 27.5 cents, 41.25 cents, and parallel tracks in a fugue at the octave, minor 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Red Sands Maunsell Forts

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Redsandsforts

Red Sands Maunsell Forts is quasi-ambient piece constructed from loops taken from a 17 edo guitar improvisation and the subsequent loops processed and live sequenced using Sonar’s matrix view (the graphic below). While it doesn’t have the flexibility of Albelton Live, I find the the constructs to be interesting despite being laborious to set up.
