Disquiet Junto Project 0485: Strange Weather

The Assignment: Remix the pure sounds of Chris Kallmyer’s traveling wind chimes to your own musical purposes.

This is the second of two projects in a row we’re doing with artist Chris Kallmyer. You needn’t have participated in the previous one to do this one. First, some background: Kallmyer’s “Two hearts are better than one” is a pair of wind chimes, one of which is depicted in this week’s cover image, crisscrossing Los Angeles at the height of the pandemic. Installed at homes for week-long listening sessions, the chimes formed a duet across a city and provided intimate experiences with sound for 16 families sheltering at home. (More at chriskallmyer.com.)

Step 1: Chris has provided us with a recording of the wind chimes, a little over five minutes long. The audio was cleaned up by Alex Hawthorn to maximize the clarity of the chimes themselves, removing much of the background sound, thus situating the chimes in what might be thought of as a platonic space. Access the wav file at dropbox.com.

Step 2: Do what you wish this the chimes. Remix them to your musical heart’s content. The one request is that at least once in your recording, let the source audio be heard clearly.

My process: All sounds generated from the source audio. Samples chopped and sequenced in Renoise.

The album is also available as a free download from Bandcamp and should be posted to Apple Music, Amazon, etc soon as well.

Beasts on Spotify

While submitting my most recent album toSspotify and other vendors it came to my attention that despite starting the process years ago Beasts(Homunculus-Basilisk) had never posted. I have now corrected the issue and made it available. Of course it is still available for free streaming and download at Bandcamp.
