Don Hassler and I will be opening for Jason Lescalleet next Friday April 26th at the Big Haus. 9PM, 368 Ponce de Leon Avenue.
Jason Lescalleet impressed me greatly during his last visit to Atlanta, and I suggest you attend.
You will not be disappointed.
Suffer Bomb Damage will also be performing. I saw them play a great 15 minute set at the Pre-Inc show back in January.
Originally I stated the date of the show as this Friday. I was wrong. This cold I’ve had has thrown me way off…
I was particularly happy with this pairing with Stephen Molyneux (percussion, found objects) of Tennessee. Skip the first minute, where I space out on the fact that our (unannounced) set had actually started. I thought there was one more group ahead of us.
I was able to recreate a similar patch to the ones I’ve used in recent performances, but with the inclusion of the second 259 which wasn’t available to me in the small performance configurations from a few weeks ago at Invent Room Pop and the Pre-INC show.
The rhythmic pulse is the mod osc of a 259, filtered, and with it’s waveshape altered via (CV) feedback to a spike, with a QRV source occasionally bouncing it into the audio range. The other half of this 259 becomes the audio FM source to inputs of another pair of VCOs from a single 259 (both using the square outputs), all three of which share pitch inputs that have emanated from a single source but each with different conditioning.
The Monitor line – with all three VCOs (the FM prin osc not making it into the final mix) enabled – is fed to the preamp and then sent to one half of the 275, which then is sent to a centered channel on the 207.
The 281 and 257 provide some activity for the 266 to feed on, and also each help with the signal levels on the 292 (the 281 via an OR).
An old gif I found on my drive this morning, from the days when Rebecca and I would drive around and photograph tiny Southern Cemeteries.
I etched a different kind of circuit board on Saturday.
I will be improvising alongside others at Invent Room Pop 21 this Friday at Beep Beep gallery, 9pm.
One thing is for certain – I’ll have this with me:
I thought I would begin the New Year with an attempt to begin posting work more regularly, as I once did.
And so I offer short loop, one of the last of four I recorded before disassembling the 100 for shipment. I wish I had been able to spend more time with the reverb experimenting with various signal paths. I’m confident it will come to good use by Benge in the future, though!
I forgot to mention that I have a few small pieces included in Beep Beep’s current Alchemy group show. Mark and James supplied triangles for use in the show, and having just shown the series of drawings with them a few months ago, I decided to go an entirely different route with these pieces. I wasn’t able to attend the opening, but from what I saw when I dropped off my work, there are some fantastic pieces in the show.
The jittery window view looks much better in HD.
I have been way behind on posting anything lately.
I thought that purchasing a portable audio recorder (Tascam DR-40) several months ago would help me to post sounds more frequently. That hasn’t been the case. Instead I have been recording more audio than I have time to edit and post. The current thinking is that I’ll sit down, and after working out some appropriate hosting facility, will make public this material.
In addition, I’ve been wondering how to separate time spent testing JRB ModuleModules and the more intentional recordings for the self. Jury still out. Hanging expected.
Until I figure it out I’ll toy with posting sounds that I feel are representative of particular ModuleModule Modules, but are not intentionally ‘demos’ – a concept that continues to elude me.
(both EQ tests really fall into the Hypnagogia body)
