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…

sfrecord~

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.

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.

Noizemaschin!! Mandurah #4 coming up

This will be the fourth Noizemaschin!! event that I have brought to Mandurah. This time I will be performing as myself instead of tilde~ since that project is taking off on its own trajectory. I have not started on the piece that I will be performing for NM Mandurah but I have some ideas.

I want to learn how to use research data in Max to create or manipulate music. With this I may utilise the wireless controller apps on iPad as the user interface. It may turn out to be quite different to the ambient stuff that I have been performing at previous NM gigs, but hopefully it will be just as (if not more) interesting.

 

I am also pleased to have the young local artist Navana on the set-list for the show. She is well known around Mandurah for being a proactive singer and songwriter with an acoustic guitar. I’m hoping that for Noizemaschin!! she can broaden the already fairly wide repertoire of art that she can create.
