Ear Burps

I thought I’d link a couple of tracks I’ve posted up on Soundcloud.
Dreadfruit was me and Spookyfruit faffing around ijn real time with a Kaossilator and Thumbjam. We were in our chalet at Nightmare Before Christmas, it was a sunday afternoon and we were feeling a bit fragile. We actually did three or more tracks but this was the most palatable, mainly cuz I didn’t start wigging out on the noise generators and slathering everything with feedback and harsh frequencies.


Wring is me on a kaossilator and iKaossilator, it is a pretty accurate rendition of the state of my cranium after 3 days of music, sleep deprivation and menthol chewing gum 🙂



Not Dead Yet

Sorry for the lack of posts recently but a combination of work and other commitments have put a serious drain on my spare time.
I’ve also just got back from my hols so I’m gonna post something about that later.
In the interim here’s a link to my latest on soundcloud.
It was made entirely out of just two samples, one of me jamming on thumbjam and one from a reaktor ensemble. They were fed into audiomulch and stretched, squashed and fxed into something new.

A Tension

Here’s a track I did this weekend using a Kaoscillator and an iPod app called thumbjam.

The Kaoscillator piano and drum patch was fed into audiomulch to produced the distressed warbles and the strings were made with thumbjam.

IMHO it’s the best value music app you can get. The sampled sounds are very good quality and you can get some expressive phrases by tilting and shaking. If you haven’t already got it then download it, you won’t regret it.
