1 Sylvain Poitras 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 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
3 Michael Klobuchar Nickola and I
4 Mikko Biffle 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.
5 Fabio Anile 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 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.
7 Michael Peters November Under The Stairs
  how my piano (that sits under the stairs) feels in November
8 Mikko Biffle PTsD
  Guitar and loop: Mikko Biffle. Fuzz demo, using my Paul Trombetta designed Bone Machine GTx fuzz. Austerity Cubed.
9 Walter Brühn 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.
10 Steve Moyes New Frame
  Electronic composition, made while attempting to learn how to use new software.
11 David Cooper Orton 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
12 Anders Östberg 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
13 Michael Peters Alright Alright
  Rhythm done in Borderlands, granular synthesis of a bamboo field recording. Voice done with Pink Trombone
14 David Cooper Orton 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...
15 Mikko Biffle 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
16 Stephen Scott 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
17 Ronny Wærnes 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
18 Raül Bonell Improvisation
  improvisation on Touch Guitar
19 Matthias Ebbinghaus 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
