Januari har trettioen dagar (January has 31 days)

In early November 2021 I had started to form a project idea in my head – To record 31 bars of 4/4 at 100bpm (1 min 14 secs) everyday for 31 days throughout the month of January 2022. A sonic diary.

By late November, I began to be haunted by panic attacks. Instead of listening to my body I continued to push on with work, and everything else in life, like nothing was going on.

In the middle of December, a couple of days after I presented the idea to Tone Burst, the darkness swallowed me completely. I went into hibernation and shut the rest of the world out. No social media, no news and no creativity. I didn’t think this project would happen.

On the 31st of December I decided I would try to go through with the idea. I started to go outside again into public places, listening to the world around me through my mobile phone’s microphone.

What follows here are the processes I used to get back up on my feet.

It’s simple, it’s intense. It’s slow, it’s chaotic.
It’s tedious, it’s beautiful.
My hopes are that it is in someway a reflection of life.

Graham F – Halo

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

< kat no.27 >

Halo is a noir patchwork of generative soundmasses. Sonic elements rearrange themselves and unfold according to their own internal logic. Revealed are themes of alienation and anti-idealism.

Included is a DIY PCB of the EMF Pingler, a detector of invisible signals and ghosts. A noise device that picks up on its environment and makes sound when it is passed through electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The PCB itself features beautiful designs that make it a worthwhile trinket for those who may not want to solder.

As with all TB instrument and DIY PCB releases, if the EMF Pingler is used in your music-making please share the results with us. ‘Toneburst wishes to publish sound creations made by other makers.’
