Finally taking advantage of Nuendo’s sampler track, which has been sitting unused in my DAW for quite some time now. For a test run I used a birdsong sound effect, loading it in so that each key of my MIDI keyboard played it back at a different pitch, and in no time I threw together some simple musique concrète. It’s pretty rough, though I did add a little reverb to smooth things out a bit. There’s some weird digital-y stuff going on in the high end. So if dissatisfied with this post in any way, you are welcome to apply for a full refund.

I hardly do any work for the stage these days, but this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Charles Cambpell and I have been something of a mutual appreciation society for the past few years, and it’s been a lot of fun to finally get the chance to work with his company Skewed Visions to create this performance piece. It’s very difficult to describe, and we’re still not sure exactly what we will have put together by the time it opens this coming Thursday, but suffice to say it’s unlike anything I’ve ever worked on before, and I’m grateful for the chance to explore such a wild and weird soundscape on the way there.
Given how often I sound edit and mix the sort of corporate/ industrial material parodied by this video, I thought I knew exactly how to approach this project for Dan Schneidkraut-- a mock promo for "Proxcorp’s groundbreaking despair management solution, Dulzipan." Nope! Turns out Dan wanted something of an unorthodox sensibility-- VO buried somewhat, no real audio accents-- because the piece clearly just plain wasn’t weird enough as it was. This video is one facet of, shall we say, a larger project that threatens to reveal itself eventually. For now, poke around the web site, and be disturbed! Also features the talents of Amanda Day, Ryan Schadalee, and others.
