Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
and clarinet too
medusae from Chad McKinney and Curtis McKinney
Experimental digital noise from identical twins and mills alumni Chad and Curtis McKinney. The softness of drone, the aggression of glitch, synthesised into a whole.
Tonight's livestream was super fun, btw. I explored an idea that was basically born out of late-night helpfile browsing and made it into a little piece of music.
Tomorrow evening I'm doing a special online event - with our team we'll adapt my audio-visual lecture #performance "JITAKAMI v.2018" for #streaming. Please come by. Sunday, 28.02 @ 20:00CET. Ticket costs 5€, but if you cannot afford it, please DM me or firstname.lastname@example.org two hours before the performance AT THE LATEST, please.
(feel free to boost this toot)
inspired by @dried 's post about modulating a hi-pass filter with an inverted envelope, I experimented with something similar.
The vca is biased to produce a drone with swells. the filter resonance turned up; it's band-pass output patched into it's fm input. and the envelope rise and fall modulated by two random sources.
recently discovered the "random step" mode in the m32 sequencer, as well as the ability to modulate tempo & a few playback parameters. Here the m32 is in dialogue with a granular delay patch, some light knob twiddling, and a few system clicks near the end (my granular patch running a little too heavy...)
the swells are done by setting the filter to hi-pass, modulating by the envelope in "inverted polarity" so that while the env decays, the cutoff rises (high-pass gate?)
@PatchNotes an experiment using a wave folder as a very unclean mixer. The module has feedback normalized to itself, and also a feedback input which allows a second signal to be mixed with the folded signal. or one or the other silenced.
I tried using ffmpeg as suggested by @flavigula as a mastering tool. (thanks) I think it's an improvement. though, I haven't yet spent any time with EQ and such.
Two days of hard work resulted in quite successful execution of a streamed hybrid burlesque perfromance using owncast. almost 60 people seems to have left satisfied. it was an event with entrance fee although we also issued vouchers for free ticket. for every thing we used flos software, including ticketing (pretix.eu): owncast, Ubuntu machine & server, OBS, Carla, calf plugins, jackd, kdenlive, Ardour, mixxx...
