Originally recorded in 1996, this is an excerpt of a Time Lag Accumulation of sounds from a Roland JX-3P, with some backward voices (the tape was "liberated" from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation after its useful days were over and re-used…

I support the CBC liberation front! Definitely a unique soundscape here! I wonder what you and Bill Newbold could come up with in a collaboration. It might be fun!

Short snippet of a video chat with my sister in UK, repeated several times. The sounds are; chime from a clock, dogs barking. Recorded on a Zoom H6; no post processing of the sounds. Submitted to Sound-In "Aliens!" for 7-10/6/2021.

OH ... yeah this is that alien sound trapped in a loop -- that works for me.

Voice through EHX Stereo Memory Man and Zoom RFX-300. Slightly different arrangement from usual, with only one output from EHX to Zoom, with the other going directly to the recorder, as well as the stereo pair from the Zoom. Submitted to Sound…

Wasn't really planned that way, but listening to the completed piece made me think this could be what our little avian buddy on Mars might sound like to the locals. Same set-up as Kowanakita, but sound source is trombone. Also submitted to Sound…

One of those pieces that starts off short and simple, then after going through various modifications ends up like this. Original sounds are from a Roland SE-02 of a randomly varying repeated pattern; the mono sound file was copied exactly and…

Combination of a test recording with clarinet, and an irregular beat sequence discovered on my Roland SE-02. The clarinet track was slowed slightly in order to match the time lengths of the two. Submitted to Sound-In for 11-18/3/2021, A Moment…

Clarinet played into an empty tube that formerly held a bottle of Scotch, which may have had some unconscious influence on the rough melodic form. Picked up by two contact mics into a Zoom H4n recorder. Submitted to Sound-In for 26/2-4/3/2021.

Thanks! Experimental is my main thing. This is about as close as I get to an actual "tune".

Very cool....I like the experimental feel of it. The Scotch bottle is an awesome technique!!!

First of three pieces made from the same original material; short bursts of sound from a cheap harmonica. Nine of these bursts were selected from the original recording, each of slightly different length. Each was then time-stretched by the same…

cool experiment the stretching and time resolution are really important to the final sound the echoes seem separate from other things --- was thinking there should be no null points --- because of the echoes going on-- how does the interactions work?

Straight off the floor - or at least out of the Roland SE-02 on my lap. No editing or processing of any kind. The title is an acronym for Repetition Is A Form Of Change, one of the cards in Oblique Strategies by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt. Submitted…

Roland SE-02 through EHX Stereo Memory Man -> Zoom RFX-300. Title comes from a combination of the time length, and the fact that it was created for the current Sound-In for 1-7/1/2021.

Excellent greatness.. It is a song that brings me back to the effects in phase and out of phase blips and bliggies .. It's the squibbly bliggies that started to loose the phases that were happening when I knew a Roland was grooving... This reminds me of how I make sounds as well. Minute 10:35 it's like birds. At about 13 minutes in the aliens seem to check in..and then leave but returned at 14 minutes in.. Chipmunks at 17 minutes in are neat maybe more of that?? It's phasing in & out as it does all the way to the end.

This started out life as a single mono track created on a Gakken SX-150 Mk II, which was then duplicated and echo applied to each individual track in Audacity; 0.015 seconds left, 0.016 seconds right. The two were then run through all sorts of…

I actually have another one, but it isn't working properly. Have to get it fixed someday.

This started its cosmic journey in a toy piano. Through several steps of processing it came to where it is now. Partly in dedication to the (at this moment) imminent Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, and also in homage to the recently departed…

due to the sparsity of the soundscape here on this --- I am also playing --- the song Itza Hitt.. mmm I started it a little into this playing there is a possible mash going on--- but I have to hear the next two song variants before making a mash-
