Students from Eltham Hill School in south east London have successfully identified sounds in the Earth’s magnetic shield caused by a solar storm. https://theconversation.com/how-a-group-of-school-students-discovered-the-sounds-of-solar-storms-104719 I made a remix of the resulting audio.

Track 1 from my new EP, Signal, available on Bandcamp. Four experimental compositions recorded on a small analog modular system. https://ym2612.bandcamp.com/
Got back to the modular after a long time away. I put some effects modules into a small Euro case and sent the Buchla into them. The bass sound here is two Buchla oscillators into a Mutable Warps in vocoder mode, imitating a 296, into Clouds, acting as a sort of randomized delay. The drone is an FM'd 158 clone into a 291r into a Delay No More.
I've been picking up some SuperCollider lately. This is a sample of a drippy sink and some FM blips.

Samples from a collection of field and radio recordings made in NY and Paris, arranged in Logic and fed through the "Sphere" convolution effect in Logic's Space Designer.
258r and 292r controlled by Blippoo Box. Overdubs, panning, and reverb in Logic.
Two tracks recorded on the Serge, focusing on the ring mod and the high pass out of the '73 filter.
A browser glitch caused Soundcloud to play this generative piece for me.
I've been having trouble putting together anything I like on the modular, so I decided to try limiting myself to about half of the modules in the system. I picked what modules I would keep if I cut the system in half and still kept something usable. Using those, I actually had a lot more fun and felt more inspired.
Based on March 17th's patch, but with the addition of the Erbe-Verb and using a different sample from the Radio Music. Both patches center around sending a ring-modulated sample into reverb.
I'm going to try again to keep up a regular patch diary. This is the first.

Using the Radio Music for some small concrete sounds from the kitchen. Erbe-Verb, a bandpass filter, and some randomness are also present.
I'm banning myself from my quantizer for a while and focusing on self-generating electroacoustic patches. I'll be uploading short snippets of them. I picked up a Soundmachines UL1 looper the other day. It's a bit weird and stupid, but it can work for what it is. That plus the A199 plus the Eko makes a pile of lo-fi effects.
