Festival Of Lights 2

Video streaming by Ustream

Perhaps in the future, I'll set a time for the next one so someone might see it as it happens. 

Or maybe not.

In any case, another holiday themed bit of live noise improvisation.

Live video of noisyness

Video streaming by Ustream
A live video performance with the Barbie Sputnik, the Radio Shack Stereo Amplified Listener tied into the Monotron, and two venerable goofy echo gizmos, the Spy N Discover Echo Mic and the Dora the Exp. Karaoke widget.  All that with no smoke & one mirror.

If nothing else, Pete the Cat does a brief walk on.  Screen left around 19:25 or so.

Hampton Beach Sunrise features Always

Hampton Beach Sunrise from Amy Okaya on Vimeo.

Here is a friend's montage of photos from the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean.  Always, a piece of yours truly's, plays in the background.

I'm honored and surprised--even if Always does seem to have a life of its own.  In Amy's video.  In recording artist Moody Alien's guest hosted radio show.

Connection Cassette Compilation #5 on Bandcamp

Yep, here's that aforementioned cassette compilation.

Lots of real cool stuff to hear, including my own contribution.

Compilations ahoy!

Sorry all this Bandcamp stuff . . just spaced the compilations to which I've contributed.

Cheap and Plastic compilation, most recently:

A great gathering of cheep keyboard creations overall, but if you have to play mine in particular:

And here the Monotron figures more than slightly:
Again for the impatient, my contribution:
By the by, these compilations are all gathered together by the boundless energy of Hal McGee. Indeed, another cassette based one is forthcoming.

Ovi Share is dead

Long live Ovi Share . . .

Originally Twango, it was bought by Nokia and became Ovi. For about two years it was the repository of most of my recordings old and new. Songs, instrumentals and field recordings, all posted here.

Then Ovi sidled away from hosting MP3s and anything afterward has been posted on Soundcloud, or Box, or DivShare or

But for almost three years after, up until this past 30 May or so, every MP3 posted to Twango/Ovi continued to he hosted there. Nearly five years: not bad for the interwebs.

So an upraised glass to the ghosts of Twango and Ovi Share. Thanks.

And you'll see maybe more than a few of these empty white spaces where an Ovi embed used to be.

Perhaps fewer as time goes on.

Each a spot to spill a glass in memory of all that doesn't last.

the great Ovi to Box migration seems complete

Soon to be dead Ovi Share embeds remain, but now have new Box embeds to hold up when Ovi Share goes down for good.

Also Bandcamp embeds.

 So Bob's your uncle, or some such.

Bengal Burlap now at Bandcamp

I'll be honest.  I've no clue. 

But stuff like "Grunt Grunt Pig" and "Encounters With Insects" is now downloadable via Bandcamp.

Price varies according to my whim.  And yours.  Sometimes the album minimum price is 5 bucks US.  Sometimes it's zilch.   (Sorry,  I'm going through a crazy time right now . . . )  But from that minimum on the rest is up to you--name your price.   In any case, the album of 11 tunes is the value package.

Meanwhile, still considering reupping the soon to be dead streaming links.

As of 30 May, Ovi Share Nokia is over

This means a bulk of the audio posted here will be gone by late spring.  Unless.

This is a sleepy blog now, with most of the current action going on the so-called annex on Tumblr.  Not sure when or if I'll reup the dead links. 

Given the odd environment online re hosting, audio sharity and whatnot--wherein whole domains get nuked whether or not files are indeed posted by their creators/copyright holders (um, any nosey visitors dropping by--this is my stuff I'm posting), it gives one pause.  The so-called cloud seems a noxious gas.

If I do reup, I'll try to simply replace old links/embeds with new, and leave the posts are they are but without pesky dead links.  And if so, I'll announce it's having been done.  Till then . . .
