Kavin. here. My first time to open the door here! Getting it started early so I can post some silly loopy stuff before I hit the road for the holiday. Going with J.C.’s theme suggestion, Looping Around. Get looped and I’ll give an ear after I get home in a few days!

      Kavin thanks for opening us for the weekend and hope in your traveling you had a great Thanksgiving.  Like the feeling of the first piece almost melting in to itself.  And second piece like Clockwork Orange.

    Paul H. Muller TR2 11-19-17

    Another version of my indeterminate minimalist piece in C minor, based on the structure of Terry Riley’s ‘In C’.  This one (randomly) uses some of the later cells I added that are a little less dense and so the final piece has more of the character I’m looking for.  I’ve just about finished coding the program that will take the individual notated cells, select and splice them all together into the series of source files that are used to build the final piece.  The idea is that all I should have to do is create the 4-bar cells – and the rest should be automated.  Testing it this week and if it works, I can start writing a new set of cells.

    How appropriate, considering that I will be participating in an event tomorrow (Thursday) night called Planet of the Loops. It’s been an on-again, off-again monthly event since about 1979. Those who heard last week’s IF will have noticed my two pieces using the set-up I intend to use. Not sure if I’ll get anything done tonight, but perhaps tomorrow – even some results from the performance!

    Jim Goodin – Poached34

    Kavin hello and happy Thanksgiving to you and all here in the States and I think mothers day abroad no?  I did this initially a violin improv last weekend, did some processing on it on Sunday and it’s got looping so on theme for the table.  I think the title came after I made my first poached egg 🙂

    James Bailey – Callioloopy

    James Bailey – Return to Me

    Well, I did manage to get a couple of things recorded; a couple of more ideas I want to try tomorrow. Both employ a vintage metal table lamp with a lovely resonant frame with contact mic attached. In the first piece it is picking up my clarinet which is looped by the EHX then pitch-shifted by the Zoom. Second piece is just from striking the shade, again looped by the EHX which is then manipulated using the delay control on the Zoom.

    Jim Goodin – For Paul For Jeff

    Earlier today Paul tagged me suggesting a Python based music library as I’ve been looking for ways to use the language to create some music.  It’s a library but seems more than that actually similar to C Sound but uses Python as a back end in it’s development environment.

    This piece came out of some ideas with cycles of fifths and a sequence.  In the end I exported the midi sequence to an audio file, edited to make longer in post and the ending is a tip of the hat to Jeff Fairbanks with his sort left hanging or surprise endings that I love.  So this piece is to the inspiration of both gents!  If I didn’t say earlier Happy Thanksgiving to all who observe the day. I hope it was  great day for you and your family’s.

    Bill Newbold – wirk-birk-2.mp3

    Bill Newbold – wirk-birk-1-5.mp3

    wirk birk 1 has five parts this is the fifth and shortest part  — and the wirk birk 2 is just that, where I will copy paste/edit the post in the wirk-birk-texeffectual-2 about the configuration used.. 🙂

    wirk birk 2 continues with the configuration of audio feedback loops and feed thru (if that is allowed) loops I  have three vocoders going but only using 2 then looping in out of the computer recorder … then looping thru and out in with the mixer and also — filtering it as the mixer feeds that loop… the vocoders have their own types of midi filters and so does the … processing set up in — Reaper .. so things get leveled in and out of balance with the final balance being more so of a necessary nature then accidental.  — also when I am not actaully touching the keyboard there is a sequence loop going on —there are 8 different loops getting used/played in the supernova while the Korg is using … and being controlled by some of these 00 depending — it also has a sequence loop atop this as well… but the sequences are less used compared to the key — touches I do..

    these were done in the last week and posted on my blog but I did  not get to come here and post — I have uploaded these two songs above to the cloud at this site as well.

      Bill like Paul you are continuing to work with your mail tools and techniques well.  Your sounds and creations are very below the surface kind of way in it’s own minimalism.  Good work!

    • carlacryptic says:

      Shane, whenever I hear your work, I want to sing or play along!  This is no exception… really like the firm and clear quality of the pieces in the front and back, while there is all that gorgeous stuff wandering in and out in between.  Beautiful to my ear.

    Paul H. Muller TR2 11-24-17

    I’ve changed some of the 24 cells that are the source for this piece and now the process that turns them into a final, mixed mp3 file has been completely automated.  Now I can concentrate on what goes into the process instead of turning the crank by hand.

    • Paul Muller says:

      Perfect for after Thanksgiving 🙂

      I wonder if this sort of programming would lend itself to 12 tone serial music?

    Paul H. Muller TR2 11-25-17

    Another version of this weeks indeterminate minimalist piece based on ‘In C’.  Now completely automated – I just notate the starting cells and then convert intosix  ogg files for all the voices – the rest is done automatically every 8 hours and is posted on my server site.

    This one starts out well, sags a little in the middle, but finishes reasonably strong.  It’s all in the source cells 🙂 so that is where I need to focus now…

    • carlacryptic says:

      As always, Roger, some cool stuff in your tracks…. I, too, like the first one most for some reason… perhaps it gives me the sense of being out in the middle of nowhere and hearing a plaintive voice.

      Carla lovely and nice to have you drop in on us again.  Don’t be a stranger 🙂  Your style brings to mind the work of another looping vocalist from England Georgina Brett.

      Though we can go to the Soundcloud site to listen the embedding of it’s link won’t integrate with player, it needs to be a hosted MP3 file somewhere.  The best place for this to work is Alonetone.com.  That said you can also upload direct to Sound-In if you go to the top menu and choose the + and Add Media.  We have the room though I think the desire is to not have everyone soak up that space but host on their own which also gives them control of their content.  But that said if you don’t want to use Alonetone and there may be another, it’s an option.  Dropbox changed their public policy and it’s type of linking won’t work anymore with the player either.

      Anyhow good to have you stop by.

      • carlacryptic says:

        Thanks, Jim….

        Ah, so that’s what’s happening!  I tried to get into Alonetone last night to no avail but that was probably just because I was so tired I couldn’t reset my password (which I’d totally forgotten).  I’ll try to upload there from now on.  I already have an account.

        Thanks for telling me about Georgina Brett – will check her out.

      • carlacryptic says:

        Thanks Steve!  Missed you guys a lot.


        lol Have you been away too?  Welcome back to you as well then. 😉

    Hey everybody, I’m back! Great job and settling in to give a listen, great to see Carla back in the mix!

    Is there anything else I need to do?

    Thanks to all!
