More tracks from the September Berlin jam

Just got my hands into the jam recording, listened to it, and made 2 cuts. Tracks 111 – 117 from the STE 000 2 file, starting around 34 min, and going to the end.











Macumbista FuzzTone SoundBox

A little detail about yesterday’s jam: we were using a Macumbista FuzzTone SoundBox – they are built in miniseries by Dennis Holzer and are real monsters in sound and playing. Here is a small snapshot: Fuzz Box and lumanoise v.02, a light controlled analog synth, which was also used in the jam (details to lumanoise v.02)

The files of the jam will soon be available here.

B-Side [2019 album – Berlin Jam session]

Yesterday we recorded the second jam session for the 2019 elektrodomestika album. We crossed paths again and met for making music. This time in Mitte. At the heart of Berlin and near the Spree river.

In contrast to the Bogota jam session we had a different arrangement of instruments and recorded the session with microphones. One musical analogue – circuit bended instrument had its own speaker configuration and required to be outside the mixer. Besides that we had granular synthesizers, samplers, and an optical synth toy.

We played with a variety of samples. Many of them are from the Berlin and Germany historical archival. Other ones are from some historical tapes recently discovered at the Raymond Scott archive. Still others are from field recordings from Boston, Cambridge, Oslo. For this session we left outside deliberately any recording and sample from Colombia.

After more than 140 minutes of music making we had to interrupt the jam. A neighbor requested that we stop making “Gruselige Musik” (“scary music”) in the building. We could probably continue to play but decided to leave the jam session there. The neighbor seemed to be seriously concerned and afraid of the sounds he was listening from the apartment above the little home studio where we were jamming. This is Berlin and we are not in 1990s anymore. Moreover, this was just an evening of a sunny and warm early autumn Tuesday.


Next Hour Tracks – Jump-cut to hour 2 : 71-80

As we cut the three hour Chapinero jam I decided to jump to the second hour and start cutting from there. Below are the links to the first 4 cuts from that hour. I started counting on 70, perhaps making a wrong estimate of how many tracks per hour we would cut.

home studio up and (nearly) running

thanks to Pablos help (who spent the whole day with me, working in my room) i’ve been able to start the setup of my homestudio. removing mountains of “elektroschrott” (electrical scrap) mixed with dust and ashes that i’ve been collecting on my second big desk, literally for years … now the machines are in place, nearly ready to run:

there’s missing the cabling and i realized, that my mixer didn’t like the years without mixing (and the dust, of course) … but a start is made, and my motivation is still high 🙂

i had to check out my new sound toy: a lumanoise v.02 (a light controlled synth):

aside from that i did a little research concerning playing music together live and online – which could be a nice highlight as you suggested to keep the motivation high for the 1000 tracks … i found some starting points to free software that could be explored further:
