Evaluation...

I feel this has been an extremely useful module, it has given me the opportunity to explore some theories and formulate some ideas within the context of music production. 

Due to the experimental nature of this I do feel I…

Case Studies...

I thought it would be insightful to include two examples of how hardware can be integrated into live performance. 

One is quite traditional in its deployment, the other is completely bespoke. 

The first is the setup of ‘Orbital’, who were…

I have started to assemble the audio material I have collected from the previous sessions, which has included: Samples gathered from vinyl, audio created using ‘no-input mixing’, audio that has been re-sampled using cassette tape, percussion tracks that will be…

Having put some thought into how I can give myself maximum performability, I have settled on a configuration that I feel incorporates Ableton as a powerful sample player that can be controlled via H.I.D devices that can be custom mapped…

Transferring audio onto cassette for performance of the percussion parts, having each part on an individual track within a four-track cassette format means I can mix them in individually and the hardware gives me a very performable interface. 

Have made…

Entry 5...

I am constructing the percussion parts for the track within Ableton using the audio material I have created (fig4), these will be formed into four individual audio tracks that will be recorded onto cassette to be played back via the…

Entry 4...

I have used a cassette recorder and turntable to capture some more material that will be given a unique timbre due to the process of originating from vinyl and then being recorded onto magnetic tape.

I have started to work on what hardware I will be using, and how it will be used, and have decided the workflow I will use to perform the final tracks will be:

I have started creating material for my tracks, by using ‘No Input Mixing’, I recorded results achieved by feeding the signal produced by the mixing desk back into the Aux input and mixing this into the channel it…

Entry 1: 

I have started experimenting with ideas for sound creation, and what kinds of sound design I will need to do to achieve them. 

I have decided to create tracks that have quite a complex set of sounds, such…
