Merzouga Too...

So many stars.

Merzouga Jam

While I went to the desert Sahara with my friend Lauren, I heard this and captured it. Just young folks jamming like you or I. I guess they are like Berber folk songs.
There is more of this to upload...

Ladies and Gentlemen We Were Floating In Space Re Place

Here is Somaloha! playing in the sound installation I made for a show that was on during the State of Design Festival 2009. It was called 'Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating In Space' and was severely indebted to the work of Alvin Lucier. My friend Vijay wrote the MaxMSP code for me. Vijay is xenosine. Somaloha! consists of Duncan Eastey from Melbourne prog/sun-psychers The Sun Blindness and myself. The work essentially transformed a disused basement on Bourke St. in Melbourne into a big reverb tank / delay machine. It was fun while it lasted.

Also here is one audio cycle of the Opening.
