aboutI'm slowly and painfully completing the work for my Ph. D. in Ethnomusicology at Columbia University. While living in San Francisco. Don't ask. In addition to music, I like bicycles, reading, building stuff, motorcycles, breaking computers, fuckin' shit up and having fun, and training feral cats as assassins.

1 Object/Videogame
stream trackload mp3   shorts
This was recorded at the fine facilities of the Columbia U Computer Music Center using amazingly huge cheap nylon shorts as the sole instrument.

I found that by spreading my legs while sitting down, the crotch of the vast shorts (which ordinarily hung about 4 inches below my crotch, mind you) would become flat and tight like a drum. I then close-miked the crotch area while scraping my fingernails across the surface for drone-like effects. The percussion is me hitting the tightened crotch area. Obviously everything has been processed quite a lot using a variety-pak of ProTools plugins.

I'm really glad no one walked in the studio while I was recording this.
2 Object/Videogame
stream trackload mp3   mechmarawarriorthon
This piece combines sounds from 2 classic games, Mechwarrior and Marathon. I love the sound design in these games. Again, most of the work is done by ProTools plugins.
3 Philter Phrenzy
stream trackload mp3   Sludgepuppy
Very simple and straightforward butt-shaker. Drum machine and Max/MSP run through a wah/distortion pedal.
4 Seventy-Five Seconds
stream trackload mp3   Kittler's Heinous Waste Blabla Project
This is a good old-fashioned sound collage using a wide array of sources. The initial sample, in case you can't quite make it out, is a friend saying "I don't give a fuck about karma - you should be decent to others even if God kicks your ass from one end of heaven to the other for it."
5 Akapella
stream trackload mp3   Successpool
This piece was made using Max/MSP to sample, loop, and ring-modulate snippets of my voice.
6 Found Sound
stream trackload mp3   The New York Accent
This was assembled from several product promotion tapes, accent demonstration tapes (for actors), recorded radio interviews, a 1983 recording of the BBC radio production of The Lord of the Rings, and other material that's sort of sifted into my life. There's also a superb performance by the noisiest inkjet printer I have ever owned.
7 East Coast
stream trackload mp3   Action Man Chase Theme (CT Edit)
Looped drums & bass, cut & paste vocal samples, turntables, and a couple 4-track tape-effects. The echo unit is just a Yamaha REV100. Progs are DECK 2.6x/SE16.

  I wish I could have been at the event or conference where they were discussing the color-sound correlation....sounds interesting. What's your melody?
