Just Some Noise

Last weeks I’ve been busy learning Renoise. The monthly workshop in Computer Music helped me a lot, and after last month’s issue I felt prepared for the job to make my own piece of noise. I have to admit: the drumtrack is based on the material CM offered – of course I entered the data myself, but the idea was not mine. But then I did everything myself, based on the techniques I learned until now.

A lot of Noise – hence the name of my Opus 11. It is interesting to notice how a different interface of the DAW influences your imagination and consequently the output. Until now I worked with three DAW’s, Ableton’s Live, FLStudio, and now Renoise. However, Musicator, Band-in-a-Box and Bram Bos’ ‘Tuareg also deserve some credit. Last week I updatet my Ableton Live suite to version 8. So, I think my next masterpiece will be in Ableton Live.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
