Next album

I have decided to create an album of some of the things I’m working on in Max.

Each track will be a simple recording of the output of each patch with minimal post-processing.

It is because of this that I have chosen the title…

One track is finished already, out of… I haven’t decided yet.

It is a first draft of an interdisciplinary performance idea I’m working on with some other Mandurians.

 

I will update when I have done the next track.

tilde~ album release on Tone List

‘Composed with Max/MSP and Garrahand percussion instruments, Æsthēsis is a foray into glitch-and-noise-based electro-acoustic ambience. Tilde~’s compositional approach forgoes lush, synth-heavy soundscapes and opts instead for close-up electronic crackles and distant metallic arpeggios. Contemplative melodies peeking through the white noise.’

Studio – Day One

I got to the Pillbox Studio after midday and had lunch before I got stuck into it. The band who were in the studio previously weren’t courteous enough to tidy up after themselves, so I spent a lot of my time tidying up cables and such. Eventually I got everything where it needed to go.

I arranged all of my own gear and cables before placing microphones.

Then I was finally ready to go into the control room and check the signals.

The patch leads are very colourful.

Happy with day one.

Days two and three will be recording tracks and starting the mixdown.
