Today I embark on an exciting new project

The Fantastic Laura B-sound art 1

Dear friends and fellow earthlings, Last week I had a dream of a beautiful multi speakers installation, something. of a new type of musical instrument and my mind went wild with ideas. I spent the week researching how to build it and I decided to first build a small prototype to see how things work in the real world. My experience with stereo and surround sound have taught me a great deal about the relationship between speakers but this is a plan on a grand scale!

I have just taken delivery of all materials for the proto, so today is my first foray into the unknown!!

Very excited! xL

Chers amis et co-habitants de la terre,

La semaine derniere j’ai rêvé d’une installation de multiples haut-parleurs, une sorte de nouvel instrument avec lequel je composerais une musique unique en son genre et mon imagination est partie en live! J’ai passé la semaine dernière a rechercher comment la fabriquer et j’ai pris la décision de commencer par construire un prototype pour voir comment les choses se passent en realité. Mon experience de travail en stereo et en surround m’a apris plein de choses sur les rapports entre les haut-parleurs mais la, c’est une autre echelle!

Je viens de prendre livraison a l’instant du materiel necessaire a la construction du prototype et donc aujourd’hui marque le début de mon aventure vers l’inconnu!!

Très excitée!! xL

Music is Maths and Ennio Morricone is a giant

I’ve just listened to Ennio Morricone’s Il Clan dei Siciliani and I’m blown away by the sheer beauty of this composition. If you want to try something cool, listen to the strings, the melody and then the bass individually by focusing on that part while hearing everything else in the background and you will get an idea of perfect geometry, harmony and rhythm. This is awesome!

Remix in progress, my TR808 is full of surprises

I’m working on a supercool remix for an ubercool artist (hi Eric ;), and after writing a wicked drum part on the 808, I’m recording the individual ouputs so I can de-mix it later and well well well what do I see? No two beats are the same!! despite being programmed exactly the same. This means that the machine has some kind of internal beating heart grooving as it wants to and perhaps explains why the 808 is such an amazing instrument that can’t ever been ‘copied’ or ’emulated’.
