An Index Of Possibilities – Introduction

Sonic Fictions 2

The main index to my SONIC FICTIONS (‘sketches’ and miscellaneous tracks in progress).

I am posting my various activities and ideas here to see who (if anyone) might be interested in some creative trade/play?

One of my basic premises is one from theatre/movies, that of ‘Three Actors’. The idea that the human mind is ideally engaged with any three things at a time on a given ‘stage’ informs everything from photography, to animation, to pop mixes.

I have consciously created many of my tracks over the last years with up to two ‘actors’ present, anticipating either my own removal from the process for the third part or, at least, the seeming removal from ‘self’ by ‘time passed’. This, then becomes an open ‘audition’ if there are those inclined.

Virtual improvisations, synthesized soundscapes, rhythmic transient electronic hyperrealisms, imaginary strings, DSP performances, gestured noise, expanded palettes and conceptual  machines, composition, recording, mixes, and most art by Loopy C (Chris R. Gibson) unless otherwise noted (mash-ups, sound design contributions, etc.) Email me at loopyc(at)loopyc(dot)com.

“Amatuer – Someone who does something because they LIKE TO!, not because it is their profession”

Please note, I am in the process of a complete transfer and rebuild of this site so stay tuned for the ‘real thing’ For a visual/textual guide to the material presently ‘hiding’ in the ‘master players’ below, please see this screen shot of my former blog with descriptions, catagories, and art.

It’s one big jpeg of the entire blog (21 mb) so it will take a minute or so to load/download!

PLAYER INSTRUCTIONS

Clicking on the link ‘Player’ in individual posts will allow you to select playlists and/or tracks.

-The > before a list name in the player is a track (click to play if it doesn’t start up immediately).
-The + before a list name in the player is an individual complete playlist, click to open playlist and then click the first track in list that appears to begin.

Some playlists do require some time to load! depending on your connection speed so allow for this or you can use the ‘down arrow’ following each trak’s name to directly download to your hard drive.

Additional ‘Help’ can be found on the player itself via ‘hovering’ over a control. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

 

**Special note on audio levels.

Most tracks are pre-production/unmastered and are optimized at -6db below 0 db (digital fullscale) so turn up the volume for previewing and enjoy the headroom when mixing in YOUR own tracks 😀

Volumes and Boundaries

As the sphere of the known expands into the aether of the unknown, the proportion of ignorance seems to grow—the more you know, the more you know how much you don’t know. But note what happens when the radius of a sphere increases: the increase in the surface area is squared while the increase in the volume is cubed. Therefore, as the radius of the sphere of scientific knowledge doubles, the surface area of the unknown increases fourfold, but the volume of the known increases eightfold. It is at this boundary where we can stake a claim of true progress.

Bad Cassette

An experimental composition aims to set in motion a system or organism that will generate unique (that is, not necessarily repeatable) outputs, but that, at the same time, seeks to limit the range of these outputs. This is a tendency towards a “class of goals” rather than a particular goal, and it is distinct from the “goalless behavior” (indeterminacy) idea that gained currency in the 1960s.

Si-Fi Motorik Arias

Experimental music is challenging to pin down because it is not a school or a trend or even an aesthetic. It is, instead, a position—of openness, of inquiry, of uncertainty, of discovery. Facts or circumstances or materials are explored for their potential sonic outcomes through activities including composition, performance, improvisation, installation, recording, and listening. These explorations are oriented toward that which is unknown, whether it is remote, complex, opaque, or falsely familiar.

In & Out of Sync

Necessity is the mother of invention. Routinely, we are irritated by not having that we desire, or even require, frustrated by what is lacking. Creativity theorists would now most likely identify the frustration as a driving force for creative activity.

Primes XFader TransFoggers

Experimental in music seems to me, it should be something that through the music, through the way it’s performed, possibly though the way it’s presented . . . socially and in concert situations . . . suggests the possibility of change. . . . The music becomes a kind of metaphor, if you will, for a social situation, that it suggests a way of organizing your thinking, your attitude towards the world, which suggests that the world could be different. . . . So that would seem to me now what experimental is about, providing a kind of model, an incentive for the notion of change.
