Everything and Nothing / Field Recording Livestream
« on: December 15, 2011, 08:43:11 PM »
One of my dreams in the category "technically impossible at the moment" is the idea of having a network of microphones all around the world (in deserts, in the arctic, on a buoy in the middle of the ocean, and so on) which stream their input to the internet in high quality and you can access them all the time (wouldn't that be great?).
Of course this isn't feasible yet (power consumption, maintenance, network uplink, costs ...), but as a first step into that dream, I mounted a very cheap unused microphone outside one of my windows and stream it to my server using an unused laptop.
Maybe that's boring for most people, but I love to listen to it - even if the quality of that system is worse than bad:

Practice and don't think too much of standing on stage. When the moment comes, you will be deep inside your music.
When I play live, I don't even realize the audience. And afterwards I'm almost unable to talk to anybody for at least an hour or such, because my mind is still captured inside the music.

PS: Also found the B side on YT:

Thank you! There's another EP planned.

Very cool guy. He's good friends with the founder of my experimental music group EMU who breathes the same spirit when it comes to the connections between music and math.
Good guy (except for his haircut and clothing ;) )

Thx! I hope everything works as it should...

I read about that issue, truly scary.
I wish I was CIQ - I'd have the best field recording network ever ;)


Spatium Somniorum 24 is an upcoming experiment in Drone/Ambient/Dark Ambient.
Unlike the static mixes Spatium Somniorum I-IV, the fifth and last part will be something completely new.
The music will be dynamic and offered as livestream. It consists of 12 mix-pieces (each is exactly 1 hour long, more might be added later) that are intermixed automagically. That means the stream will continue forever and develop itself.
Start: December 24, 2011 (UTC+1)

In order to listen, you just have to "attend" the Facebook event or request the link here.

I will then send you a link when the stream starts. This link will go online automatically. You will be able to listen directly from the website or via stream from you phone, web-radio, etc. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I won't post the link directly though (for legal reasons - don't want to get sued for this), hope you are ok with that.

I've recently released a Dub Techno 10" EP. Maybe somebody is interested in that kind of sound(?). If not just ignore this post...

PS: If you'd like to buy the vinyl you'd better hurry up, it is almost sold out. You can get it here for example:

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Steve Roach 2012 Box Set
« on: December 14, 2011, 11:56:25 AM »
Honestly I've grown more and more disenchanted by Steve's music these past few years, whereas before I would buy anything he produced and love it (except for the tribal stuff). 
I miss his space/drone ambient work.

Anyone in the same boat?  Or have I simply become jaded...   ;D
Unfortunately I have to agree. Although I love his music, the last releases lacked a bit of innovation in my opinion. I always think I've heard the same pad/sound in 20 other Steve Roach tracks before. I guess Steve should risk experimenting more. Last release I really loved and which was much innovative in my point of view was "Terraform" with Loren Nerell.

Hehe. I had been working with Max a lot for some time but then switched to my own programming environment.
But Max4Live is pretty nice, so I started to port my old patches. I've always preferred Max over Reaktor as you simply can do more with it - Reaktor doesn't allow to develop standalone programs and the documentation isn't as good as Max's is.

I'm sorry I don't know which albums you have. Just drop me an e-mail if you need it again.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Max4Live (and some False Mirror Reason Patches)

Any m4l users here? I'm currently porting some of my old Max patches to m4l, here's the first one:

Noise Patterns
Noise Patterns was originally made as an example for a lecture. It is kind of a simplified version of its ancestor 'Windscape' (which will also be ported into m4l) and creates drones using additive synthesis with 64 voices.

Demo video:

PS: I'm currently also posting some of my Reason patches on my Facebook page, just like/follow it, I will post more. ->

Haha nice.

Freddie Wong's first person Mario is also quite funny

I hope we all can learn from these mistakes and make some changes for the better.

+1 for that

The information policy is really annoying. Japanese officials seem to contradict themselves with each piece of information, it almost looks as if they try to calm down the people trying to prevent mass-panicking.

Everything and Nothing / Nuclear Disaster in Japan
« on: March 14, 2011, 05:30:36 PM »
After the shocking images of the Tsunami I've been following the news very closely about updates on the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant and it looks as if just now the absolute worst case scenario has come true:

The containment on reactor 2 has been breached and radiation is leaking in much higher amounts than before
The  personnel is getting evacuated except for 50 people (poor guys!!)
More than 8000 mSv (deadly) have been measured at the power plant
Wind is coming from the north and will disperse the radioactive material over Tokyo

I had been rather hopeful during the last days and had hoped it would be possible to handle the decay heat, but all my hope has been vanished minutes ago..  :(

Hell.. this absolutely reminds me of Chernobyl.  :(
I still was a little child in 1986, but I remember that I mustn't play outside and entire Germany was panicking.

If you live in Tokyo I think you should leave the city as soon as you can...

Thank you very much drone on!!

As it's Christmas, I've given out the second set of hints for the quest game. Everyone should be able to solve it now
Happy Christmas everyone!

I've send out all the links.
