Hey everybody! Welcome to another bi-weekly Sound In event. There is an optional (but encouraged) theme for this one, and it's "Inside the Box." What does that mean? Here are a few thoughts:

1. Play to your strengths/comfort zone.

2. Emphasize effects/processing.

3. Stay within strict parameters.

Now go make some music!

    A Windy March Fade into the Music of Lady Spring 

    " A Windy March Fades into the Music of Lady Spring"   This is my music setting of "Lady April", a photo of a collage by Lidia Chiarelli. The setting is via Motif and Reason, My composed counterpoint was controlled by Record and Kyma. The setting is a one movement binary AB form and the second section is my piano improvisation from about 5 years ago.

    Long Beach May 7, 2017

    I've got my latest piece all cut up into 24 pieces and fed into my webserver that makes up player files by analyzing webcam images.  This one was from Long Beach on May 7.  You can see the Queen Mary towards the center.  This image looks like early Impressionism due to our overcast spring weather.

    My server has been modified to manipulate and serve up MP3 files embedded in the HTML player, so it should work on iPhones now (news to me that Apple doesn't support ogg vorbis format).  If you try it, give your phone a few moments to buffer the incoming files (there are three individual MP3 files). Starting them with a 15 or 20 second delay between each seems to give good results. 

    Here is the link: LY Image Server

      Paul I like what you've been doing with this new method – I wonder if it would be possible to process a video from Bill – that could be interesting.

      • Paul Muller says:

        Chris,

        The server processes a single image.  It could process a frame of a video, but not the entire file.

        I may give that a try at some point – Bill's videos are amazing…

    Solo tenor sax. This is about as "inside" anything that my playing gets. Vaguely like a tune, somewhat resembling a ballad (I was going to call it "A Ballad", but thought that lacked imagination, so went with something that sounded similar and a bit classic).

    Standing Under A Tree in Ithaca

    hey everyone this is on theme in terms of a couple of suggested points referenced, etx and strict parameters. I recorded this on Wednesday totally on the iPhone including final stages of getting to MP3 format and posting to alonetone. Getting to MP3 is normally the deal breaker on the Apple device. I found an online file converter and utilized Dropbox to get to/from and was also able to use Dropbox to upload to alonetone. I will later document and put in our FAQ maybe. The piece is spoken word manipulated and looped in the Loopy HD app. Still on road now. In St Paul to celebrate my older sons graduation this weekend.

    On theme on all three points above, although that wasn't the original intention. 

    Keep making great music everybody!

    Here is today's version based on a webcam image of the Bremen airport parking lot.  Just used the treble tracks for this one…  

    • James Bailey says:

      On Friday night, I attended a poetry reading and music performance featuring works by a guy who had studied at University College, Oxford, and who had attended lectures by J. R. R., and had Christopher as his tutor. Fascinating fellow to talk with (apparently, he found J. R. R. to be a very boring lecturer, but liked Christopher a lot). A good friend of mine had set some of the guys poems to music that was performed – a capella – by his daughter who is an operatic soprano.

    Some short pieces that are definitely inside the box. Well, ok, they are out of it now, but they came from within. This time it's the Zoom RFX300's turn to do a solo. In order to extend the range of the beast, I create a feedback loop by connecting the stereo RCA outputs to the same inputs, with the channels reversed. The 1/4" outputs are used for recording. By playing with the in/out levels and the mix / time adjust settings I can get it to play with itself. I'll leave you with the challenge of figuring out what the settings are.

  8. Shane W. Cadman says:

    Hey Everybody! Thanks for participating. I'm looking forward to listening to all the music soon.

    And Steve Layton – you were missed!
