The Last One

365 songs in 365 days. I feel great. Thanks go to YOU for listening to however few or many you did. And special thanks to the +1’ers on Google+, and LIkers on FB and Tumblr. Most of all, thank you to the commentators.. I would likely have given up somewhere along the way were it not for your feedback and support. (Matt, Colin Dunne, Brother Colin, Mom & DOD, Andrew Locke, Marlynsuarezexconde, Adam Griffin, Kevin Smith, Eric Bouton, Denny Boynton and all you others.. THANK YOU)

please DO NOT unsubscribe, I’ll be back with QUALITY over QUANTITY in 2015.

Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)

Every sound heard in this piece is RFI, specifically caused by electronic household appliances (like treadmills, light dimmers and TVs). Here’s where I got them: http://www.arrl.org/household

I don’t blame anyone for skipping this one. I grew up as the son of a Ham Radio Operator and these sounds have always intrigued me.
I want to return to this source material later on, with less focus on drummy rhythms and more on tone blending with noise and timbre juxtapositions. I did that a little here but I want to stretch out and make it a longer study.
one more note: in headphones, this one makes a lot more sense, spatially.

optic nerve

experimentation with a single frequency (C) and several octaves. sorry it’s not very entertaining, but it’s what I did today. there you go.

infoburn

picked up a few (freeware) VST plugins today and they were used on this track to try them out. the effects are not dramatic, but I like them. I hope the droning nature of this one doesn’t give anyone a headache. If it does, I’m sorry.. consult your doctor about the dangers of intense ambient music listening.

about the art: the source pic is from a wall in one of my classrooms, scuffs, markings and (Korean) graffiti make strange topographical map-looking patterns in the final image.
