Lac du Der ‘station nautique’ France.

Natuur en recreatie, genoeg te beleven voor een weekendje weg.
Ondanks het koude weer toch nog een uurtje gevliegerd met de Freilein.

Nature and recreation, enough to experience for a weekend away.

[track] sun child [disquiet0294-offlinestatus]

This is the fourth track I’ve recorded in honor of Bassel Khartabil Safadi, a pioneering and beloved Syrian open-source programmer who gave his life to ensuring an open web, teaching others about technology, and contributing his experience freely to help the world. Syrian military police arrested him in 2012 for unstated crimes, and held him without trial. In August of 2017, the world …

[track] ’57 Echoes [Disquiet0258-RoomsWithinRooms]

Spending this week in Venice, FL, at The Herron House. Built by architect Victor A. Lundy (FAIA) in 1957 for the Herron family, the house was restored to its original grandeur by its current owners, Ursula Kohl and Peter Bartos, in 2008. It’s a masterstroke of mid-century American imagination, and a timeless time capsule that will always feel like the future.

Most of …

Almost X

Ten more dice rolls. Records don’t so much freeze as liquify time. I’ve lost years to music. Time is the price you pay, however, to alleviate dreams.

Almost X where X = whom, where, what or even why you want to be. Let’s fly this town, through the looking glass, riding our 99th dream into the stars, towards X. …

[track] King Jack’s 99th Dream

This track started out life as a disquiet junto challenge a couple years ago:

Assignment: re-tell a single-page comic strip, 99 Ways To Tell A Story [Panel 1], by Matt Madden:

Background (via disquiet.com): “Matt Madden’s single-page comic is the template for a book he created titled 99 Ways to Tell a Story: Exercises in Style. In the …

[track] Parallel Memories [disquiet0207-remixingmarilli]

The records you make don’t freeze so much as liquify time. As with Michel, 1983 was a pivotal musical year for me, too, so this week’s challenge fired a wonderful cascade of memories.

Playing with the tonal and harmonics filters in Paulstretch, I stretched each of the three 32-year old samples to 32x their original length (and M1 also to 64x)a few times. Brought …

[track] Life In Candid Wonder (The Cost Of Future Tense) [Disquiet0202-CostOfFreedom]

“Creating is living doubly.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

This was the third Disquiet Junto project that revolved around Bassel Khartabil Safadi, a coder, artist and free-expression pioneer wrongfully jailed by Syria, his home country, for “harming state security.” In October, he was transferred to a secret location, and his whereabouts as of this writing are unknown. This past week (2015.11.14), disturbing rumors surfaced of a possible …

[track] split seconds [disquiet0194-clockplay]

PROCESS
I do not own a clock (or any time keeping device) that makes operational noise, so I used a CC-Attribution sample at freesound.org of 4 one-second clock ticks that looped perfectly without any cutting at 120 BPM. This juggled me a bit, since the 60 BPM clock ticks were playing in double-time to be in real-time at half-time to the track time.

The …

[track] sedimentronic figures [disquiet0190-missedconnections]

PROCESS
20 bars of Rupert Lally‘s “Sediment Layers

8 bars of Ahornberg‘s “Digital Frippertronics

Loads of flying, fluttery harmonics and shifting undertones as these loops cycled together. Rupert Lally’s track loop is 30% right and ahornberg’s is 30% left in the mix and they’re both blended (smeared?) together by a slight (27% wet) band-pass (1500Hz) resonance filter and …

[remix.reflector] Steve Burnett: Swellsandswells [disquiet0190-missedconnections]

Fantastic remix by multi-instrumentalist and sound artist Steve Burnett (Raleigh, US) of Zedkah‘s “Swells [disquiet 0189: tone layer]” with my C Swells [disquiet0189-tonelayer]. In Burnett’s hands, the combined tracks become synesthetic as his cosmologic expansion/contraction process fires all the senses at once. The forces at work here are extreme – too large and yet, also too small to comprehend, yet …

[remix.reflector] Conjecture Of A TIme: Whooshed Connections [disquiet0190-missedconnections]

Conjecture Of A Time is a wonderful, mysterious sound artist who has contributed to the Disquiet Junto since back in year two. This week, [he? she? them?] remixed small loops of my C-swells [disquiet0189-tonelayer] along with Olaf Wisselink’s Cascade [disquiet0189-tonelayer], adding in “whoosh” sounds to mask the loop endings. The result is a joyful noise. File under: Summer road trip asteroid rest stop …
