New Album: sfrecord~

I have recorded a few of the pieces I have been working on lately and included them in an album.

sfrecord~

If you are familiar with Max/MSP, then you would know that the object known as sfrecord~ will record the audio input to a file on the hard drive. It is a simple way of retrieving the output of a patch. I have used this method to capture the sound from a few patches.

I intend to continue to use the concept of sfrecord~ for albums, as they demonstrate some of what I have been working on.

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.
