A collection of noisy, fun, cool, geeky, techy, wired or just plain wierd stuff for your consideration!

Musique Concrete

Inspired by the (accidental) discovery of my Macs built in microphone, and our lectures on Luigi Russolo and John Cage, i have composed my own piece of Musique Concrete. Here’s ‘Headscape’ –

I had great fun recording all manner of noises for this, from rattling my bracelets, to the flick of a lighter (10 points to anyone who can identify the lighter in the track). I really like the reverb that seems to be present on all the recordings i made (although i have added some different reverb settings to several channels). However i want to get a usb soundcard and nice mic so i can get cleaner recordings.
I am working on another piece in the same style and will be uploading soon. Hope you enjoy this one!

  1. I liked the track but found it too repetitive to sustain my interest… (hope that’s not too harsh, as there are some great sounds there !!) I wonder if you would consider making something shorter but punchier? more variety of sounds perhaps?
