1 Sylvain Poitras
stream track Friends (old and new)
It's a little one take wonder playing with a couple sequences in Numerology controlling a Moog Mother-32 and a Commodore 64. I'm sequencing the drums on the fly using my version of Mutable instruments' Grids sequencer running as a Pure Data external on the Organelle.

2 David Cooper Orton
stream track Fore-lawn region - the nearest sofa
And then this - What I'm doing at the moment? Sounding like me as usual - somewhere between a never really existed folk music idyll, and the long wished-for sanctuary of ECM records. As ever, the comfort of melancholy, and an inability to find the point at which to stop. Bits of Nick Drake, John Abercrombie and some kora music eventually merged and melded into one multipart stream. Guitar and loopers (mainly Pigtronix Infinity) and Neunaber reverb. And a couple of decisive edits

4 Mikko Biffle
stream track The Silver Apple
Fuzz Demo for the Mojo Hand FX El Guapo and the braying and kicking was only surpassed by the stench. There is no getting away from the mule fuzz!
The usual verb and light delay, with spasms from Malekko Charlie Foxtrot, Dr. Scientist Bitquest and Boss DD500 reverse delay. Main loop was with the DD500, resampled with Charlie Foxtrot into a small mono TC Ditto.
6:24 
5 Fabio Anile
stream track On the beach
The title of this song is recalled by Nevil Shute’s novel On the Beach, a post-apocalyptic novel telling of a mixed group of people in Melbourne as they await the arrival of deadly radiation spreading towards them following a nuclear war a year previously. As the radiation approaches, each person deals with impending death differently.

6 Stephen Scott
stream track Ali
The rhythm track is created using the Alesis SR16 drum machine. Several different rhythms were recorded, then cut up and pasted within the DAW to form the basis of the track. The rest of the track is played on various synthesizers.
2:26 
7 Michael Peters
stream track November Under The Stairs
how my piano (that sits under the stairs) feels in November

8 Mikko Biffle
stream track PTsD
Guitar and loop: Mikko Biffle. Fuzz demo, using my Paul Trombetta designed Bone Machine GTx fuzz. Austerity Cubed.
3:44 
9 Walter Brühn
stream track Never say H while playing a B
A new guitar and a new programmed looper equals new ideas. The title admittedly deals with a German problem of the notation of the international "B" named as "H". Maybe the pun works only in Germany. The acoustic guitar was the only overdub in this track, no further cuts in there.
5:12 
10 Steve Moyes
stream track New Frame
Electronic composition, made while attempting to learn how to use new software.
4:05 
11 David Cooper Orton
stream track Eels without voices
Originally the backing track for a piece I did with Huw the poet, which he trimmed quite agressively(!) in the final piece to better fit with his words, but as I liked it as a stand-alone piece, here it is in its slithering entirety. Born-out of experiments with a revived interest in the Eventide TimeFactor, looping the delay, rather than the looper itself, inserting random amounts of e-bow and guitar processed through the Digitech FreQout, with lashing of Neunaber reverb
2:01 
12 Anders Östberg
stream track RTE 252AM
Wide-band audio recording for a postponed audio/visual project with artist CA Thorheim. The recording was made with WebSDR whip antenna. Thanks to Amateur Radio Club (ETGD) at Faculty for Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science Universiteit Twente, Enschede, Holland
4:40 
13 Michael Peters
stream track Alright Alright
Rhythm done in Borderlands, granular synthesis of a bamboo field recording. Voice done with Pink Trombone
3:12 
14 David Cooper Orton
stream track Blade Stumbler
If I was doing the soundtrack to the remake of a beloved sci-fi classic, I might try something like this. It's all derived from guitar processed through my pedalboad, with some Catalinbread Bicycle Delay quite prominent in places, but beyond that - and some apparent octave-up ebow via a FreQout snatches in the hinter-distance - I'm not sure what's going on...
2:36 
15 Mikko Biffle
stream track Boneshake Bolero
Guitar and loop: Mikko Biffle. Fuzz demo of the DOD Boneshaker. Austerity has been a major guide recently, both economically and artistically. This reality has led me to more immediate methods; sometimes in resignation and other times quite happily
3:20 
16 Stephen Scott
stream track Go Forth
All the rhythm track is created using the 'No Input Mixer' technique - feeding controlled amounts of outputs and sends back into inputs. This was recorded into my DAW, and cut up and pasted to form several rhythms. The rest of the track is played on various synthesizers and bass guitar
3:20 
17 Ronny Wærnes
stream track Under the Bridges
I have been fiddling with various sketches on the PC for a while, and these just came together. A mix of found sounds, and use of stretch
4:40 
18 Raül Bonell
stream track Improvisation
improvisation on Touch Guitar
1:30 
19 Matthias Ebbinghaus
stream track Linday
Voice, melodica, loop station. A canon in 4 voices, accompanied by a drone. All sung and played live, using a Boss RC-505 loop station
