I’ve had to make an unplanned move to a new host provider. Part of the fun in that is recovering all the files that were hosted with my previous provider and restoring them to the proper place with the new provider. As such, it may be several days before some images start showing up again. And there may be some links to hosted files that stop working.
Finished this last year, but just now getting around to putting it on the internet.
Denouement. Swan song. This project is finished. Ten years in the making, this is the final gasp of an idea that has run its course. Revel in the culmination of a decade’s worth of experimentation, as it comes to fruition in this stuttering, semi-aborted lunge at the essence of all that is, was and ever will be Controlled Dissonance.

Controlled Dissonance returns with this lumbering, droning juggernaut of dark ambient and soft noise. Layers of deep rumbling and howling drone sift and shift across the stereo spectrum, playing host to half-heard mutterings and the abrasive clutching of distorted springs. A teaser of things to come…
Air – one of the pillars of our natural world; a complex gaseous phenomenon that reshapes the land and wreaks natural havoc. A powerful force that makes possible all life on this planet.
(Noise Made With) Air pays its respects to the natural world by inviting your submissions of tracks created by use of air, in some manner. Anything from samples of wind to the use of compressed air to create sound: leaf blowers, hurricanes, fans or even the body’s unique methods for ridding waste gaseous byproduct.

Walking Without Rhythm
Shut it down.
This one turned out smaller than I had hoped, but the submitted tracks work really well together, and the release, as a whole, is tight and representative of the concept. So, overall I’m pleased with the results.
Caveat emptor, motherfuckers.
Found this on Tuesday. Maybe with the warm weather, my favorite street art trend will re-emerge.
Gabriel, my beloved monkey son, is at it again. Today he sent me the lyrics to his latest song, “Pea Sized Brain”.

Singing sand (also known as booming sand, barking sand or whistling sand) is the term ascribed the phenomenon of sound produced by moving sand. During an avalanche, or when blown by wind, sand of a certain composition, size and humidity can produce eerie, low-pitched sounds that can be heard for miles.
Walking Without Rhythm is a compilation designed to employ the natural sound of moving sand in the arts of noise, dark ambient and audio experimentation. Each track submitted should contain some element of a sound recording of the singing sand phenomenon; either using the audio provided, or audio from another source. Audio can be manipulated in whatever manner the artist sees fit, provided that it is somewhere in the final mix.
The following recordings were culled from an article by the Morphodynamics Lab of Laboratoire de Physique et Mécanique des Milieux Hétérogènes.
The compilation will be released under a Creative Commons license in VBR MP3 format. Please use the Contact link in the right-hand navigation bar for details on track submission.
Submission deadline is
May 31st June 15th. Happy noising!
Due to some strange encoding issues, two of the tracks in the Worst-Case Scenarios release turned out to be white noise. I have corrected these tracks and uploaded new versions, which are now available for your listening pleasure. If you’ve already downloaded, or listened to the album, I implore you to go back and check out the Daniel Kemp tracks again.
Thanks to Nate for the keen ear and attention to detail!
