The 5000 Drum Fingers Of Dr. C

The playing of several thousand potential ‘drummers’ (drum sound oscillators) derived from an RGB image. Each track is one single  drum loop, composed through triggering by a graphic score in 2048 pixel space. Conceptual/title reference to a somewhat obscure Dr. Seuss movie.

Laminal Loop Painting

Painting (literally) with loops. For each track, a graphic ‘score’ was ‘painted/drawn’ on the computer  screen and interpreted by the re-synthesis (via several thousand! dedicated oscillators) of a single loop in RGB/pixel space.

Hebden/Reid Influenced Prototype Sessions

Prototype drum and bass synth improv variations. A nod and wink to the Kieran Hebden/Steve Reid improvisation recordings. Artificial ‘lo-fi’ treatment on purpose but mixed in earbuds! so I may have to update these mixes.

Canned Drums

Drawing lines to and from rhythmic sound art (such as Max Eastley’s ‘Kinetic Drawings’) and the intimate impressionistic percussion of laminal improv to create a singular  ‘hyperplayer’, performing and being recorded inside various cans and other micro-intimate simulated spaces.

Ambient Dubplate 1

First in a new proposed series in a ever-growing catalog of personal dubplates, this time of ambient textures approached from a mathematical context (conceptually).

“In mathematics, especially in geometry and topology, an ambient space is the space surrounding a mathematical object. For example, a line may be studied in isolation, or it may be studied as an object in two-dimensional space — in which case the ambient space is the plane, or as an object in three-dimensional space — in which case the ambient space is three-dimensional. To see why this makes a difference, consider the statement “Lines that never meet are necessarily parallel.” This is true if the ambient space is two-dimensional, but false if the ambient space is three-dimensional, because in the latter case the lines could be skew lines, rather than parallel.”

Wobbly (Drums)

Rhythms derived from the integer sequence ‘wobbly’. From Jason Freeman’s description (as included in his ‘Metamix’ software):

“This sequence is based on a sequence first described by B. Reznick. It seems to wander around a bit unpredictably, beginning like this: 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, -1, 0, 1, 1, -2, -1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, -3, -2, 1, -1, 2, 1…

This sequence is self-similar; it contains infinitely many copies of itself and is invariant under scale. If you create a new integer sequence by using every other term of this one, you end up with exactly the same sequence!”

The recursive formula for this sequence varies depending on whether each term is even or odd, causing the somewhat unpredictable behavior of the terms.”

21st Century Schizoid Loops

Crackles, pops, pocks, combustions, gurgles, buzzes, amplitude tautening, powerspikes, voltage differentials, colliding pressure fronts, patterings, jump-splices, fax connections, silent interjections, hums, murmurs, switchbacks, clunks, granulations, fragmentations, splinterings, roars and rushes…these a just a few of this 21st century schizoid man’s favorite things.

Proof Of Life

Left behind on the forbidden planet, one last call to home from the the sole remaining Krell communicator…which strangely resembles the chance meeting of a Gameboy and a Toyota accelerator pedal on a McDonald’s grill during the breakfast rush. Concept reference was the electronic tonalities of Louis and Bebe Barron meets The Future Sound Of London (ala ‘Lifeforms’ period).
