Sonicircuitry - Making sound with electricity
I use only Free and Open Source software to create my works. To me, the freedom and flexibility it permits and encourages are vital to artistic practices of any kind. Such spirit can also extend easily beyond the realm of codes, into physical processes such as instrument design and hacking. Free software is not about technology, it is a culture of independence, empowering individuals to explore and enjoy what they do, whatever it maybe.
In this session, Chun Lee will be demonstrating some of the sound circuits he has been making. These instruments are made either from widely available and simple components, or hacked from existing toy or devices. He will also talk about how they can be integrated with software processing, using Pure Data, to generate interesting soundscapes.

Finding a Voice - using vocals from open and unexpected sources in your mix
My main software tool for composing is Propellerhead's Reason 5 - all of my tracks start out in Reason. I choose to do all of my mixing in Cakewalk's Sonar 8.5. I use Sony's Sound Forge 9 for sample editing and format conversion. Alongside musical elements that I create myself, I employ a number of commercial sample and loop libraries and Refills for Reason, "found sounds" that I collect with a Zoom H2 field recorder, as well as CC licensed and Public Domain material found on the Web. I perform live with Reason rewired to Ableton Live 8 using a Yamaha WX5 midi wind controller, a BCR2000 rotary controller, and an Akai APC20 dedicated Live controller. For critical listening I use a pair of Fostex PM0.5 nearfield monitors along with the dedicated PM0.5-sub.
MoShang will look into some of the common problems you are likely to encounter when using vocals that weren't recorded specifically for your track, and ways to get around them. He'll be illustrating the subject by referencing the way I employed vocals from Public Domain and "found" sources on my latest "Further East" album.
