Another day of refreshing my Pd skills! It has been quite a while (ten years!!); but making a series of randomised sound patches. Here's a great resource for working through Pd:
(s)kin has been a real journey of spiritual reconnection for me. I had reduced the technological/electronic aspects of my work over the years: I am slowly bringing them back.
The melding of electronics and my more traditional instruments has been a consistent theme in solo work; and also with the duo with Orphy Robinson (ca. 2004-5).
Making (s)kin is also keeping me relatively sane during the doctorate. Although some of the work is very connected with my thesis, each month has been more about rebuilding my musical identity and working through my emotions/thoughts.
