Some NICE work here. Jam with the short handles!

Jam with the short handles! Had some very special moments with cng303 (Chris Ng ) and mng (Mongi)

These moments appear fleetingly and then morph and twist into new shapes in a matter of mins.

I captured these a few mins apart.

Some Rather FUN(ky) moments

Massive THANK YOU to:

FancySpectacles, AndyMac, Andrej Avramovic , Luke1248* and Swinney*   (*links please)

This was KILLER, before I started ruining things

Horns, stand please!

Getting somewhat Huge

Ok reset… 

Keyboards revenge…

Nice line…

Settling back down.


THEN ya log in the next day and its … Boggling work by LOOP, Bananapoep and Swinney

small vid HUGE vibe!


More Fun with loop points

Really this is just about seeing what’s available in the new QuickSampler in LogicX, and as far as this tricks concerned, its pretty primitive compared to SOME of the tools out there, but given you can lock the loop lengths and start points to quantise values, it lets you do some fun stuff!

Just set up the CC’s in the mod matrix to 2 faders on your keyboard or whatever…

Start and Loop start to the same CC and Loops End to a second CC.

gets better each time it goes around… 

Into the Atticus and Trent sonic? Give this a dig…

Delighted to announce the imminent arrival of a new library from ModWheel

I’ve been assisting with, manipulating, and and doing some sonic design work on this for the last month or two … and all I can say is … ITS SERIOUSLY GOOD.

Into the Atticus and Trent sonic?  Give this a dig…


Had a rather dizzyingly early start a few mornings ago to jam with Imogen Heap via Endlesss

People : Meet Matt and Imogen…

The session was about an hour of absurd noises and some fun, it was an honour and delight to be involved …

I need to point out this was a collaborative effort, so also very much involved were: Jim Mclure, Rick Sands, and Jeremy Michael Skjevling.

Thanks to all!

Got asked, so…Setup was: OBS  collecting my 2 vid streams  (laptop and Phone cameras) and intercom audio sending via Google Meet to the very gracious Matt at Endlesss, then music via Ableton Live ‘blackhole’d‘ to the amazing @EndlesssFM Studio, synching all the audio from the UK and USA to me. My Toys were a few NI soft synths, a Microfreak, with a tokai tele and a stingray bass via GtrRig.

Snapshot Demos for SoundDusts recent release


Call for simultaneous sonic recordings from our windows and balconies

Recording 4 minutes 33 seconds of their sound environment at precise times (local time: 8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm, 8pm) over one day on APRIL 19, 2020, all or several of these hours.

Dear all, For several weeks now we have been living through a particularly difficult and tragic period with the global pandemic that is directly affecting us. This situation is upsetting our perceptions, our habits and our certainties. It is at the same time a radical and unexpected questioning of social, economic and spatial models and the revelation of the world from unsuspected angles that may open up some perspectives for reflection and action for future transformations as for an analys of this situation. The action proposed aims to set up a world observatory based on sound, of which is one of the tools.

Sound is an important revealer of moods for some of us. The objective is to understand how our environments and the ambiences we experience change as a result of changes brought about by confinement. However, we all live in very different places, in particular neighbourhoods and under specific conditions, confined for many of us, we are confronted with living the ambiences in a new way. Our windows, balconies, loggias and terraces, if we have them, become one of the modes of immediate contact with the outside world, that of our neighbours and of the city, just as for those who live in the city, windows and balconies become remarkable transmitters. Since March 30 we have already proposed to our fellow researchers in the AAU laboratory to make simultaneous sound recordings from their windows open to the outside on specific days and at specific times to create a coordinated corpus of recordings from this direct interface between our confined interiors and the hollow city.

Therefore this call is addressed to all of you who are interested in these phenomena to participate in a global observation from their windows, balconies, loggias and terraces if they have them where they live, by recording 4 minutes 33 seconds of their sound environment at precise times (local time: 8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm, 8pm) over one day on APRIL 19, 2020, all or several of these hours. The duration of 4 minutes 33 seconds refers to John Cage time during which a performer plays in silence for four minutes and thirty-three seconds, this duration is actually made up of sounds from the environment that the listeners hear or create when the piece is performed. Silence” is therefore a moment of listening, and our cities have become a different kind of listening material during this crisis.

All these recordings can be compiled on the “” website provided that they are : -geolocated gps under the mode 45.8790 / 7.98789 – .wav format or equivalent, sampling if possible 48Khz, stereophonic is better -attach one or more photos of the situation (no video), looking out from the inside -precise the recorder and microphone used, avoid non-stereophonic smartphones -give the location of the microphone (height, position in relation to the window or balcony, facade) -Record a short observation specifying the moment experienced and the remarkable differences with the situation before this crisis (customs, sound composition, link with other senses, weather of the moment, …), The notes can be written in french, english or spanish You can go to to see how to file a sound and what information is required.

To deposit a sound it must have an url address for it, otherwise you can send them by specifying in the filename your name and the recording time to : Yours sincerely, hope you are well Grégoire Chelkoff ENSAG Professor / Researcher CRESSON AAU

C19 means kids doing home school #GigsForKids

I wonder if its possible for us to all ‘donate’ our unused mobile data to go toward helping families that need it for home schooling.

C19 means kids doing home school

There are a lot of households who do not have decent web access outside of mobile data.

Most families will have a mobile phone that can tether, but the data is expensive, perhaps more than some families may be able to afford.

Meanwhile, the rest of us are at home, not using our mobile data that we pay for with our plans.

I wonder if its possible for us to all ‘donate’ our unused mobile data to go toward helping families that need for home schooling.

This would mean the carriers and the department of education need to talk about the families who need this help (usual more remote households or communities.

Who do we talk to?
