To look for purity in a mess

3 out of 6

messing around with the system

current updates

for the past month, actually i’m trying to consolidate the stuffz for the final outcome

here are some sketches that i have in hand right now:


these are the clips that i dig out from my old iBook back in the 2007-2010; they serve as the building blocks for me




i decided to compose altogether 6 tracks for my final work

the tracklist are here:
a1 1984
a2 pier
a3 1394
b1 dismembered
b2 dialogue
b3 anshin

hopefully at least half of them will be ready when we meet up next time.
stay tuned.

a bit of testings


  audio in (in this pic it is the korg volca sample) => 4ms swash => moog murf midi => digitech supernatural ambient verb => dod delay dfx91   pedals order may vary but this is how i sculpt my sounds.

bits & pieces

sometimes i guess point form can help

  1. the project should brings me a full stop for my MFA journey
  2. i start living with my partner last year
  3. the “change of state” by my living experiences is kinda new experience to me
  4. in a good way, i start that so called “independent” life
  5. at the same time, there are always uncertainty happenings around me
  6. at first i treat that as my “fear” towards such “independent”
  7. i don’t want to simply put it into a cliche way to name it as ‘grow’
  8. by any means i would like to take it as a way to explore new possibilities
  9.  just like what i did in my own art, no matter it is sound, visual or any other fields
  10. the topic is named ‘[re:]capture’ since i like to bring up the idea of active / aggressive
  11. to capture something we need to take action by force; whereas recapture something we sometimes need to recover / recreate / re-experience
  12. i find it is the radical factor towards my way on how to do art
  13. in recent years i start dig back certain instruments / techniques on making sound
  14. different gesture / instrument establish its own operation
  15. to me, i always treat creating audio related output as similar as cooking
  16. in my own way, i would like to blend my ingredients altogether
  17. the mixture outcome recalls me of smoothie
  18. or, refer to the youtube channel, “will it blend?”
  19. if iphone will eventually blend into a mix of smoke & dust; what about different sound source?
  20. thus, that “blend” is my gesture / instrument
  21. and what i interested to do is to revisit the works i made in my MFA era; and look for a way to recapture them and reform one new amalgamation.
  22. right now i just build upon one set of effect unit so as to let any kind of raw materials go through it.
  23. collection of “smoothies” are going to be made
