Sunday, 26 September suddenly there was music. I thought i'd relax for half an hour or so and get my equilibrium back by playing with some sounds before getting on with work. I'm waiting to hear his take on it but i'm pretty happy with it. Beautiful sunny day here with my mother and her husband on their way to visit bringing me my old gramophones that they've been storing.
I'm going to use them in a class on tuesday and thursday this week as most of my students don't even know about vinyl let alone the old shellac 78's. Bloody philistines. Labels: collegemusic. Wednesday, 15 September Phantasms. The wonderful noises they made throughout the s shaped my ears in ways nothing else ever did.
Doctor Who alone would have been enough but it is merely the tip of a very large iceberg indeed. Lately I've been re-immersing myself in the work of people such as Daphne Oram, Delia Derbyshire and John Baker and got the idea to try and create a set of Radiophonics of my own, Phantasms is the result.
It was created between 5th and 14th of September using a virtual FM7 synth and a few other little twists and turns. It's as unrepentantly electronic as my music Who? - Ian Holloway - Phantasms has gotten or is ever likely to get. I hope you Who? - Ian Holloway - Phantasms it. Buy it here or listen to it below.
Labels: bandcampdownloadsmixcloudmusicphantasmsquiet world. I teach my first class in about 7 years tomorrow. I've been doing more individual student work over the last few years Only With You - Various - Hit Parade so have been away from the rigours of front of class teaching.
For a long while i didn't miss it but over the last year or two i've got the jitters for it again. I'm going to be teaching three courses this year which meant my summer went out the window as i was just Daddy Where Did I Come From (Second Version) - The Nice - The Immediate Years here writing lessons.
It was a lot of work and i haven't even got half of it done yet but Bang Er N Chips - Orb* - Pomme Fritz ahead and off and running as of tomorrow at 9.
I've been listening to a lot of Radiophonic Workshop stuff of late and had the idea to put together Who? - Ian Holloway - Phantasms electronic miniatures - sort of my own Doctor Who soundtrack album. It's all done on a virtual FM7 synth and i've kept it as live as possible. Each track was recorded with the minimal of layering and post-production work. I've avoided the endless tinkering and tweaking that usually happens with one of my compositions and instead i've let the originals stand.
It's unlikely i'll put this out as a cd but i think i'll make it available as a Bandcamp download and as a mixcloud cloudcast for those of you who dont want to pay. Here's to only track that's online so far - it's probably the most successfully soundtracky piece of them all. Labels: musicradiophonic workshopteachingwork. Newer Posts Older Posts Home.
