solstice overtone drone

my laptop set at polly moller's "long night's moon" concert at the luggage store gallery. the only sound sources were overtone-singing vocal samples of cary sheldon and an iphone recording of a small bell.
thanks to cary, polly, rent, c.j., matt, suki, michael, and amar.

free improv mashup

the source material for this track is excerpts from a citta di vitti (see 10/19/08 post) live show (thanks to michael zelner for great live recording) and an improvised duet with john schott on guitar and me on lloopp. I dumped them into ableton and did a "slice to new midi track" and triggered that with midi game of life.
