I contributed a track to this podcast via a challenge issued on the fb page Electronic Music Philosophy which is hosted by the same guy from the Absurd World blog. I’ve been enjoying the more critical and probing aspects of this blog as it addresses deeper meanings and ideas behind what we do as experimental and electronic artists while shying away from the focus on gear. There are so many angles and aspects to come at this artform from and it is refreshing to interact with some folks who have a deeper understanding or the desire for a deeper understanding of the process and motivations behind it. I’ve been exploring this realm since the early 90’s and it never ceases to evolve.
This particular challenge was to create a piece utilising a single sound source. I originally wanted to use my ‘Monoscillatron’ since it would have really illustrated the theme well but I discovered that it had ceased working since my last gig back in October.
Instead, I used a Buddha Box. I recorded multiple tracks first onto a Tascam 4 track tape recorder and then live mixed that into my DAW where I did some further collaging.
It’s a 2 hour show full of excellent sounds and my contribution can be found at the very end! I’ve been following the podcast for awhile now and I’m honored to be included in one! Enjoy!
