Latest episode is up on Steemit:
Welcome to the latest edition of Monday Night Noise Sessions! This one links back to another post I made recently, in which I used databending to process a photo into glitch art, see Rorschach on Acid. The process involved converting the original image into raw data and importing it into Sound Forge for processing with audio effects.
Second episode of Monday Night Noise Sessions is up on DLive:
Second episode of Monday Night Noise Sessions, recorded “live”, no editing (I lack the bandwidth to do a proper live stream). Audio is a mix of hardware and software. Video is an OBS screen capture of the program I was using to generate/process the sound (Plogue’s Bidule), with VSXu providing additional visuals.
Due to some uploading issues, the first one was more of a “Tuesday Morning Noise Session”, but oh well. This is a new thing I’m planning to do regularly. Each one will be a bit different, but the idea is to do some type of live-recorded (no audio editing) audio/video noise session every Monday night on Steemit/DLive. I don’t have the bandwidth to do an actual live stream, so the videos will be pre-recorded, but the audio recording of the performance will be left as-is. The first one was posted late last night:
Note: upload issues make this more of a “Tuesday Morning Noise Session”, oh well. First of hopefully many weekly noise sessions for DLive, recorded “live”, no editing (I lack the bandwidth to do a proper live stream). Audio is a mix of hardware and software.
Another nice review of the Mrs. Dink/FS split, plus some other recent and cool stuff from Degenerate Trifecta:
Crash Symbols radio show:
Music from Skin Contact and Fugue State is now available on Choon, another site that pays artists for every play using cryptocurrency. So far, I think I like it a little better than Musicoin.org. Seems a bit more listener-friendly on first impression.
Fugue State Audio @ Choon
Main Choon site
The FSA website is back online after a hacking incident. Due to my own negligence, the most recent backup was missing pretty much everything since getting the site back online the first time. The actual content was/is on my PC, so it’s really only news posts that got lost. I think everything that was here before is back, and then some.
The biggest news that’s missing is releases from my musical projects, and there’s been quite a few. Here’s some links to catch you up:
EP, album, 20-year anniversary collections @ Skin Contact bandcamp: https://skincontact.bandcamp.com/
See the main SC site for further news on remixes, collabs, and other stuff that happened over the last year or so.
Fugue State releases on Degenerate Trifecta: there has been a digital EP and a split with Mrs. Dink on cassette/digital, which I’m very excited about.
In other news, Fugue State Audio is now on the blockchain. I have started posting on Steemit, and have uploaded a bunch of stuff from the backcatalog on Musicoin.org and Dsound, which is a sort of SoundCloud-alike linked to the Steemit platform. I haven’t completely decided to ditch everything else in favor of these yet, but I will be focusing more on these from here on out.
Simultaneous Aural Detriments, Vol. 3
This is a noise compilation of sorts I took part in, organized by The Network Of Individualized Sonic Extremism. The reason I say “of sorts” is because, rather than containing a bunch of individual tracks from various artists, it consists of one 15-minute track containing layers from each participant. Each artist contributed 3 minutes of audio, which could be spread across the 15-minute timeline however you wished. The other artists who contributed are Digestion Machine, Monskor, Teuthis Galore, Radioactive Wastelands, Nygatoria, SPACEGHOST, and The Dreaming Corpse.
Skin Contact – Revisionist
Contains remixes of tracks from past SC releases, plus a few previously unreleased tracks. Two of these tracks (debase and downcycle) come from deep in the vaults, around 1998.
Skin Contact – Abort, Retry, Fail
The source material used on all 3 of these tracks was the last recording made on my old PC before it died. It was a short bit of knob-tweaking from one of my DIY machines, which has been timestretched, cut up, and otherwise mangled into an EP-length collection of drones and noise.
Both of these are available as pay-what-you-want digital releases in multiple formats from the SC bandcamp page.
