Eleven Eleven Podcast 

Download (59:50 – 82.2mb)

Based on a mix I did for Halloween one year, much of which was also used at a What Is Music performance, this is my version of a “hauntology” mix.  Lots of creepy soundtrack stuff.

Awake in Fields of Albion

991098502-1

Originally created for a tape release on a label that never materialised this album mutated into the “post-laptop” breakdown album featured here.  Jammed out on real instruments in the downstairs studio/cinema of the house we were renting, then mangled with plugins this release is inexplicable and unrepeatable.  It is also my favourite album ever.

Dry Mouth and a Tendency to Hallucinate (with Joe Musgrove)

3649503285-1

This set of collage music was created live and then pared down.  Take a pinch of Demdike Stare and… whoops too much Nurse With Wound now no-one will listen to it.

The Drowned City

829897125-1

Following a disastrous flood that wrecked large parts of Brisbane I was inspired to compile a set of what I consider to be electronic pop.  Given the inspiration there are many slippages applied in the mixing.  Siderial not etherial.

Alias Frequencies AF041

My attempt to make populist music with populist software (Ableton Live) that is still intricate and interesting.  Rigid formula and square tempos but reaching towards the creative.

Tangerine Nightmare – Synthicide (with Clinton Green and Andrew McIntosh)

sham058-small_thumb

Edited from a winter jam in Melbourne 2009, this is a noisy combination of 3 different improvisers with 3 different synthesisers and lots of pedals.  I’m working mainly from a Waldorf Blofeld and a Kaos Pad, Clinton had a VCS3 Synthi and I believe Andrew had a Yamaha (DX7?)  You wouldn’t know though – this isn’t exactly calm spacious Kosmique Musique.

2009

Humming through Schizophonic Air (with Paul Forbes Mitchell)

AF027-300h

Alias Frequencies AF027

Several hours from our combined digital patchwork system entitled “Habitat”, edited down to a cosy 40mins.   PFM designed an AV patch in Pure Data and I designed the A/Life that controlled it in Processing.  We then improvise with live instruments and “Habitat” remixes the results.

Bonus content: this is an improvisation using only battery power that we did for Earth Hour in 2008.
