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.’

Æsthēsɪs – tilde~

Engage all of your senses in a multi-disciplinary performance. Mixed live and set against the beautiful visuals of nature, experience the musical ambience that can be created by electroacoustic instruments and a laptop.

A conceptual collection of six pieces of ambient music set to beautiful visuals, in order to create an experience stimulating multiple senses. The tracks are created using laptop and the input from electroacoustic instruments. Due to the nature of the random number generators used in the processing in each patch, no two performances will be the same.

The layered works of the visualist Lillevan have been extremely influential to the concept of the imagery of Æsthēsɪs. Similarly to his work, there are a lot of juxtapositions between the natural and digital worlds present in both the music and visuals.

Three Rivers brewery will be offering a unique and limited edition beer on the night.

Come and experience this performance with all of your senses.

WHEN:     Saturday, 21 May 7:30pm – 9:30pm

WHERE:  Make Place, 17/38 Mandurah Terrace

Live-Coding Max Patch

Here is a messy patch of the Live-Coding I did at the Mandurah Stretch Festival on Saturday the 2nd of May 2015. Some external objects were used in this patch that can be found at the following sites:
