stream track Memories of a Festival Barbeque
The track ended up completely different to how I imagined it would. It was created using a washing machine drum that I pulled out of a dead washing machine whilst looking to see if there was anything I could salvage to make some noise inside. The wheel at the rear of the drum which connects to the belt has an amazing resonance to it but I couldn't shift it from the drum so I ended up keeping the whole thing. The track was made using two short samples (a few seconds a piece - one being the resonance, the other the pin of the drum, both captured via contact mic) and modifying them in Ableton Live to create a much wider selection of samples. I originally imagined a piece that would be more melodic but as I started to combine the tracks I realised it sounded like a strange imaginery wash cycle and so in homage to its origins I have gone with that flow.

4 Teisha is now banned
stream track no subject
Initially I used TalkBackToBasics to create audio versions of the Teisha related emails. I processed and manipulated these as loops which were then remixed to form the finished track. The source materials created in this project were quite varied and some will definitely be used in future projects.

comment 06.12.2007: Peter Gambles
  My initial reaction was that as a piece of noise music this was pretty good, but any connection with spam was not obvious. After a while though, you hear all the voices chattering in background. The sounds conjured up an image of some organic-mechanical hybrid. People trapped in a nest of mechanical rattlesnakes. Definitely not a place you want to be. Then it suddenly shifts into a different mode  peaceful, celestial, joyful, full or freedom. Whats this about? I read it as symbolic of how the internet could be without spam. Teisha has been banned. Worth repeated listenings.
