New Album: sfrecord~

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


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.

Video art is a truly contemporary art form, which is growing in
popularity, diversity and complexity. A collective of artists showcase
video art pieces in Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah’s inaugural

My piece will be uploaded at the conclusion of the exhibit.

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.

Noizemaschin!! Mandurah #4

Thursday the 27th of October saw the return of Noizemaschin!! to Mandurah for the fourth time. Along with being the MC for the evening I performed a piece exploring weather data in a musical context (unfortunately I forgot to press record until after my set).

Here are some photos from the night.
