Here's the latest on my musical activities since, whenever:
- I played and tweaked Moog synthesizer on "Orderly Universe", from Opposite Day's new EP Mandukhai. The whole thing is great -- get yourself a copy!
- I contributed the "Playground Process Mix" to the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's Tetherball Triumph remix contest. I took something of a Steve Reich approach to it, and used a Perl script and a calculator along the way. At over eight minutes, it was the longest entry. Be sure to listen in stereo, with headphones for maximum effect.
- I contributed the "Rods and Cones Mix" to the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's The Sensation of Seeing Light remix contest. This time, I submitted the shortest entry. My goal was to create a "re-composition" of the song, starting out with the feel of a quiet jazz club (think black & white -- rods) and building up to a blazing old-school electric Fred sound (think colour -- cones). (Unfortunately, as of 2011-10-02, these remixes no longer appear to be available on the JFJO site.)
- I've written a couple songs so far this year.
