The new Flavigula album, "Jēmaraz", will soon be released by Submarine Broadcasting Company, a netlabel brimming with experimental musical projects of many kinds. We're happy we were accepted into their community.

However, I also made sure I could release the album to other arenas in different contexts, and thus I present to you all:

Do with and to it as you wish! I hope it is an enjoyable journey. Making it was quite an adventure.

After struggling a few weeks with mixing and mastering issues, the new album, Alläï is released!

I'd say it's quite different than what's come before, but I have a rather skewed point of view as the composer. I hope everyone enjoys it!

Released a new song as Blood and Dust today! Thanks to everyone who helped with the mixing :)

There’s a lot of grief and purifying anger in this one. It also features traditional Irish keening (caoineadh), an ancient form of grieving that was practiced until it was erased by the pressures of the Catholic Church and British moral imperialism.

This song was very intuitive in its creation, and we are curious to know what it conjures in others, feel free to share ~

@PatchNotes same patch modulating mic feedback with some double bass long tones around the same pitch.

Miked with H4N. Lots of in situ room tones, computer fan, hum because the computer is on top of one of the monitors, shuffling around, etc. ~*~life~*~

The new tone at ~5" is the endpin resonating inside the instrument. This usually doesn't but I'm sitting a lot lower than normal, so more loose endpin length.

Obviously, I wasn't going for tunefulness here. The Złob Dual Vco (just the sine wave!) sang everything from lumbering rumbles to piercing pings. The warbling formant is the Mutable Instruments Plaits. The Bastl Tea Kick, possibly my favourite kick-y apparatus provided the "beat", controlled by ALM's Pamela's New Workout. Various LFOs modify parameters with seeming minds of their own. Oh, and I thwizzled some knobs in the process.

@boud oh god, a fossbro, in the wild, quick call the photographers!!

if you really care about free software so much you can kindly start with not being so abrasive about it that people like yours truly who have been using it full time for more than a decade feel remorse for having participated in it.

I moved to SoNoMu today.
My name is Varun and I am a sound/visual artist based in NRW Germany. I am originally trained as a sculptor and am currently a student of Sound in Scenography. I make techno influenced experimental electronic music and long field recordings of anthropophony. What I would really like to do is to make sound installations and one is in the pipeline.

This audio visual piece is made during the beginning of this year.

“Sextant” is an original composition for piano, double bass, timpani, and percussions. I wrote it on June 23 and 24, 2021.

The essence of the piece is given by the ostinato on bass, coupled with a reassembling of piano “blocks” of a partitioned leading theme, which cyclically repeats itself.

Such a series of 7/8 music quantums is followed by a second theme, in 6/8. Said theme is first played by piano and percussions; then, again, slightly variated, by contrabass, piano, and percussions.

Then, the first theme enters again, with a new reassembling, which then drives the track to its conclusion.

“Sextant” is available on #Bandcamp, here:

A video is available on youtube, here:

The video features pictures that I took at the St. Hubert's Galleries in Brussels and at the Hortus Botanicus Lovaniensis (the Botanical Garden of Leuven), Belgium.

More information and pictures are available on my Noblogo, here:

If anyone has semi-good to excellent quality recordings of birds that you captured yourself, and you feel comfortable with the idea, please send them to me, as I shall use them in a piece I'm working on.

I built a track around today's patch, which plays with Plait's speech synthesis models. The track is called "Scraffur Araffur", for obvious reasons.

This is just a rough sketch again, it needs some cleanup in the sound design, some additional parts and so on. Knowing me I'll likely never touch it again, so I'm putting it out there in all it's raw beauty.
