An ep of manipulated field recordings and improvised ambient music.

From the original posts:

Vacation tomorrow. I'm taking my 4-track, Dr-55, DD-3, XTAL mic, pencil condenser, Monotron Duo, melodica, and iphone.

I will be recording a song every day of the vacation using found sounds and objects from that day.


Song for surf city beach

Concerto for tonepad, stovetop popcorn, and two honey dippers

Piece for old ladies playing golf with golf carts and birds, windshield wipers/gps, synth pond, and granular synthesized iPhone rubbing on three ring binder

Piece for three pretty girls riding bicycles, miniature helicopters, DR-55 with DD-3, and monotron duo

Today's catch featuring scuba tank bell in a marsh, taboo game, crowded bar, palmetto, bugsy walking, lighter, and Beatwave

Tweaky Beat, Gullah gas station exhaust fan, tunnel into Asheville, tunnel out/gps, and melodica Dub


released June 4, 2012
