I’m back in Montpellier and excited to be playing at the September edition of Les Folies by the excellent PR company Extended. The line up is Laura B on electronics/voice and Olivier Dullion on trumpet, and we’re determined to make this a killer performance!

The event will include an extract from the theatre play Des Couleurs Pour l’Avenir (the preview on YouTube is pretty awesome), a flood of fine wines from the cellars of Chateau de Paraza,  delicious food specially prepared by Mickaël Diore, maitre restaurateur at Montpellier’s distinctive  Grillardin restaurant, and all of this is included in the ticket.

There will be prizes to be won including some Laura B goodies and more…

The location is pretty awesome next to a marina on the road to the beaches and there are plenty of parking spaces.

Le groupe sera composé de moi Miss B a l’électronique et voix et du magnifique Olivier Dullion a la trompette! Nous sommes décidés a vous offrir une performance de premiere!

Thank you :) :) :)

My darling dearests, here’s a little Midi a Minuit thought for you (it’s 3 am and coming at you live from the studio): I’ve been mixing all day so to stretch my legs so to speak I’ve just taken a stroll online and various links took me to the Laura B page on discogs where I saw 462 Laura B records for sale. That’s quite a lot so I had a look and guess what? I see compilations I’m featured on, records I’ve engineered or produced, some collaborations and co-writes and some records I mastered but hey 🙂 not one single CD released on Fantastic Recordings. Then I checked Ebay, there’s one Midi a Minuit EP with a knackered cover obviously listed as a collector, then none on Amazon.com nor any on Amazon.co.uk. This makes me think that perhaps you’re all holding onto your copies? And if this is the case, all I can say is thank you and I’m touched by your loyalty, you’re the true stars in my sky 🙂 🙂 🙂

Multi-speakers installation travels to Bristol for a software writing session with The mighty Jungulator

I took the 16 speakers installation to Bristol this week end to show it to Matthew Olden AKA I Am The Mighty Jungulator as I need bespoke software for it. Matthew has coded an amazing interface for me and I’m now well on my way to composing music for my 16 speakers prototype. The week end was also a great excuse to get together with my inspiring and fantastic friends Kathy HindeAJ and Ulf Pedersen. Do check out their art, they invent extraordinary things! Shame I didn’t get to see Grainy with whom I made ‘Shuffle Stop, Start, Repeat‘ for Late at Tate.

Ce week end j’ai emporté mon prototype de 16 hauts parleurs a Bristol (2h au nord de Londres) pour le montrer a Matthew Olden de I Am The Mighty Jungulator parce que j’ai besoin d’un logiciel sur-mesure (prêt a clicker?). Matthew m’a créé une interface géniale et j’ai hate de commencer a composer avec. Ce week end a aussi été une excuse pour retrouver mes super amis artistes Kathy HindeAJ et Ulf Pedersen. Je recommande une petite visite sur leurs sites, ils inventent des choses extraordinaires! Dommage que je n’ai pas vu Grainy avec qui j’ai créé ‘Shuffle Stop, Start, Repeat‘ pour la Tate Britain.

Portable 16 way system (some will disapprove! )

image

Of my use of a perfectly good wine rack but this is for the good cause : a tranportable compact 16 way prototype system for when I need to work on this project in a small space for example when the weather doesn’t allow me to set the big frame outside. (see what it looks like in my previous posts)
This configuration is very useful for judging the response of speakers very close to each other. My 77 speakers system is so far planned to a similar config so I can’wait to hear this in action and I wonder if there will be enough separation between the speakers to clearly distinguish between the different sources.
I spent the last few days soldering and gluing more metal washers on the back of the speakers as quite a few have come undone when I pulled them from the magnetic frame. I did a lot of experimenting with Cubase and Live in order to define exactly which parameters I want to control and how. I think I’ll use Live for the final project because it will allow me to do so much more than a classic time line-based DAW.

I’m loving the comments I’m getting from the few people who have listened to the big system. They come up with ideas for practical applications I haven’t dreamed of! I feel like Banksy did when someone told him that his message with his rats was very clever because RAT is an anagram of ART. He replied ‘ha ha yes you sussed it’ while inside thinking that he’d never thought of it!!
