Field Recording series

October marks the start of a few new things in my life, one of which is the first release of what will be a series of straight field recording albums.

These will be a catalogue of my field trips, capturing and collecting sounds of various environments.

 

 

Field trip on 30/09/2018 to Lane Poole Reserve and Nanga. Some sounds captured along the Xanthorrhoea Trail, on Bindjareb land.

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.

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.
