A Complete Package

The project for csm5 is becoming clearer to me now. It will consist of a package that includes a 7 song mini-album, max patch (music software) and some accompanying videos/animation.


The E.P./Mini Album Update

Posted in Project Proposal Ideas on May 4, 2010 by crystallinesphere

The idea so far is to create a 7 song mini album called Continuum which will at one end start with pure sonic art and become progressively more pop orientated. So in an album of 7 songs, the middle one would be 50% sonic art and 50% pop, for example.

Character of Alter-Ego

Posted in Project Proposal Ideas on May 3, 2010 by crystallinesphere

I’m trying to get the alter-ego down that will drive the project. I’ve chosen an alter-ego because of Bowie’s use of the form. This means that the alter-ego is like a channel or conduit for the art that will come out.

Some of the characteristics that he will possess are: Flair, Passion, Mystique, Charisma, Intelligence, Wit, Chameleon – like i.e. can change personas at will, Theatrical sensibilities (creates a show), Authenticity, Originality, Refreshes old forms (Musical etc, Think Beck and Beatles).

Middle Ground Concept

Posted in Project Proposal Ideas on May 1, 2010 by crystallinesphere

The song ‘middle ground’ was based on my concept first idea. The concept for this was to mix chaos and order, so a max patch was created to generate a random frequency 10 times a second.(Chaos) ┬áThe patch was created from audiocookbook’s blog, will post the link later. This was loaded into Ableton live and then I used more traditional song creation to complement this with the order side of the equation. A neutral wave sound that clipped was used to give atmosphere to the piece.

Japanese Style Poem Inspired By The World Is Sound

Posted in Project Proposal Ideas on April 30, 2010 by crystallinesphere

I have written a Japanese style poem that condenses thoughts down into a short amount of words. It is inspired by ‘The World is Sound’ book by Joachim-Ernst Berendt.

Sitting, Thinking,

Experience Love,

Connected, One,

All is sound.
