Alphastare Studio Explorations

IMG_7191

I set up my rig at friends studio in SF and did some exploring. We ran everything though a house system and it sounded huge! We also set up a raw room recording into a digital recorder that uses cdrs. Just 2 mics but they were really good mics. Still working out some kinks as the audio only came out of one channel, so here are some raw vids with no audio edits. Something to get a sense of it. Going in for another session soon.

 

 

LIVE

My next live show is at Bird and Beckett Books in SF as part of a series called Audible Method on Saturday afternoon, Nov 10th.

Alphastare: “Optonoises”

IMG_9979

I recently released a project I’d been working on sporadically over the past year utilising audio sent to me by Stan lewry aka “Optonoise” who uses lasers to create sounds. See my interview with Stan  to get more of a sense of his work. Check out the video below from his presentation at The Tate Modern awhile back, to see and hear some of the sounds in their raw state.

Enjoy the release!
