<kat no. 14 F>
The UM66 chip was designed to play popular monophonic
melodies: The chip used in this circuit plays several melodies.
The UM66 is used two times. They are not synchronised.
This DIY EMI has potentiometers to control voltage starve & volume as well as a switch to change the ‘bent’ character of the sound. It is possible to use headers sockets for the ICs to allow them to be swapped, enabling user control over the output.

This version was designed with a Winter celebration in mind, hence the name FESTIVUS as celebrated in regions of Europe and beyond. Nollaig na mBan! (little/women’s christmas Ireland) Trettondedag (13th day Sweden) día de los Reyes Magos (3 kings day Spain), also; Epiphany.

‘It’s the night the taxi drivers quiver in their boots’ Pauline – Cork

(Battery not included.)
These DIY EMIs require a 3v CR2032 battery for power.
The output is a mono mini jack (3.5mm).

Expanding Foam – Waymarkers

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

<kat no.23>

On this tape you will hear a series of examples intended to assist you in your journey. The examples on this tape are designed for you to run trials prior to your attempt to join. The 11 pieces will give basic directions and illustrate disruptions and interference experienced by the traveller on their journey.

The waymarkers are made using an FM transmitter these will play a continuous loop tuned to an agreed frequency. The traveller using a radio tuned to the frequency can then pick up the signal. Each loop can be used to impart information covertly, giving directions, warnings and other information. The pieces included here are simply the beginnings of the loops needed to traverse the land safely.

VA – Tying up Loose Ends

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

The sailors make fast the loose ends to ensure the boat is shipshape.

“Tying Up Loose Ends” is a nautically themed project split into 2 segments. 
The first, titled “Noise Forecast”, is heavily inspired by BBC shipping forecasts, the rhythm of their delivery and the alien yet comprehensible language used within them. The compositional framework for this part of the project is a text-based score which was written in a way that aimed to allow each participant a unique translation. To further contrast the finished pieces, careful attention is made in approaching different artists with varying sonic palettes.

The score for this first installment of the project reads as follows:

“Culport;
Southern Bleakness. 8
Phront – Lofty, Stressure: NIL.
Bromide Sprinkles – Occasional.
Eudaimonia – Swindling, Tempestuous Nodes.
Torrential Data, Deluges: 37, Clustered.
Drainage: In Toto, Preparation Timely.”


The second project segment, titled “Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan & Derelict”, is an exploration of how new life can be given to short pieces of sound that perhaps could get lost somewhere in a timeline. To achieve this, audio is salvaged from one person and recycled by another, although organised in such a way that ‘who is collaborating with who’ remains unknown. Artist and equipment information are intentionally removed as to hopefully have no influence over the finished works.
Guidelines for FJL&D are:
“SALVAGE You have received some salvaged audio from another participant involved. Use these sounds as a starting point.
RECYCLE
Please use both files, although they don’t have to be used in their entirety. One shot or single cycle samples are fine. You are free to edit & treat these in any way you see fit. Chop, Sample, Granularize & Mangle. Unrecognisable is good. Additional instrumentation is allowed and encouraged. This is not a remix project.
COLLABORATION
Audio discovered amongst your posts has been shared with another participant to carry out the same process.”
