NEMO 008
year: 2000

project coordinator:Morgan Hamilton Lang
mastering: Morgan Hamilton Lang
artwork:Morgan Hamilton Lang

A split CD. The first half challenged contributors to use seemingly less-than-musical objects to make interesting noises. The second half features tracks created using only sounds from video games. Go from bicycles to exploding monsters in one convenient package!

stream trackload mp3   bike
All sounds created by my 1997 Mongoose (pre-Brunswick soul-less corporate buyout)
Surge hardtail. I'd love to make some new music with the two other bicycles I ride in
an obsessive manner and maybe even include my wife's recumbent and a friends'
recumbent currently being stored here.

All sounds were generated using a small inflatable toy balloon. The sounds were then modified using Granulab and Audiomulch

stream trackload mp3   it's hard to ride a bicycle in the desert
All sounds on this track came from my daughter Chloë's bicycle, a small purple one with fringes on the handlebars.
There's a video for this one on YouTube. (speleman62)

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.

  I like this ambiance, very hypnotising. Good work :-)

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.
