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.’

Expanding Foam – Waymarkers

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

<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.
