Thank you all for letting Quelle und Echo grow in 2014. As an intermediate result, here goes a little live video.
Feel free to come around on December 13, in Berlin. This is an event you can also find on Facebook.
As a collaboration with Ekkehard Windrich, Sonoscoop started an avantgarde-pop project fiddling with field recordings. To find out what’s inside, you can listen to all tracks of the demo on Bandcamp.
Here comes the reason for a bit of silence on this blog. Sonoscoop has joined forces with a gifted musician and started a new band: Quelle und Echo.
We are trying to find the poppy side of field recording there, brewing music with the most absurd ingredients. Have a listen and feel free to drop us a message. If you think it’s worth listening again, make sure you don’t miss out on our special for the launching of the website. Find out more here.
Again, a good excuse to watch TV. The documentary “Wir dienten
Deutschland” by director Knut Beulich will be broadcast for the second time. Sonoscoop wrote the soundtrack to this. They give us a chance to watch it twice, at 20.15 h and at 01.05 h.
Pure Data is an open source software that offers object-oriented programming.
It is precious to anybody experimenting with electronic music and acoustics. This section provides some patches that I worked on. Most of them I’ve played live on stage, triggered by a MIDI controller. Feel free to use them for your purposes.
My nephews who are 8 years old asked me to program a simple instrument for them to fiddle around. This was my suggestion, a combination of Pure Data’s recycled wavetable synth which allows changing the timbre by just drawing. Pitch is controlled by the keys. Press and jam! If you need an English manual instead of the German one, please let me know.
Please make sure you have ezdac~ and synthclaco installed in the same directory, so PD can access them.
Entirely based on field recordings of Berlin main station, released on net label Haze’s series Sound Interpretations.
As part of the netlabel’s series “Sound Interpretations”, Sonoscoop contributed the latest piece “Try to leave this building”. The song is entirely based on field recordings at Berlin’s main station.
You can download the experimental package of all contributions for free here: http://h-a-z-e.org/archives/3518#.U3TFpcbv2DQ
Sonoscoop is currently occupying the studio in order to produce the latest pieces. More information will follow.
