UNP007 Sunday Afternoon Modular Jam
It’s been a busy few months. Busy, in my mind, means that everything you do has a purpose and a preferred outcome. One of the reasons I love jamming on the modular is the lack of purpose and the unexpected twists and turns that arise. Nothing patched and nothing planned. Playing with bits and pieces. … Continue reading "UNP007 Sunday Afternoon Modular Jam"

We all need interaction with feedback, constantly, to prevent ourselves from going mad or unnaturally out of touch. This episode is all about the sonification of electromagnetic fields in and around the house. Listening to sound we maybe rather ignore. That and a healthy amount of mind altering feedback.
UNP002 Just Get On With It
It was here days ago, and it hasn’t become anything better now than it was back then. Most musicians know that perpetual motion of tempering with every little detail in their work. It’s a daunting task that doesn’t add much to the quality or experience of a piece. Creating this podcast every other week forces … Continue reading "UNP002 Just Get On With It"
UNP001 Where We Are
Happy Holidays! In many respects, this was a year of extremes. Profoundly striving for change or guarding against it. But we’re not that important. If anything, we need to relearn how to listen and to acknowledge that we are far from isolated from our fellow men. After all, we travel through space on the same … Continue reading "UNP001 Where We Are"
