STILL THERE

http://ekm.works/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/tumblr_lq9y8wkILR1qc80zi.mp3 is a cute little track from AMORPH to remind my blog checkers that I am still here! I started work last Monday, so progress on my little music/video project is slower, but certainly still moving – I’ll try to post some more teasers later this week + maybe I’ll squeeze in a few architecture related posts if I get time :) but for now, enjoy this track and click on the link to check out more music from this...

TEASER

This is a work in progress -images and music by moi! That’s all I am going to say/show for the moment...

ONLINE PORTFOLIO

Hello ladies and gents, I am happy to announce that I have just launched my online portfolio! It took me a while to edit the HTML and CSS to link the look and feel to the aesthetic of this blog, but I finally got there! Take a look at my efforts HERE and enjoy! Comments + ideas are more than welcome. At the moment this folio mainly displays a small selection of my architecture-based work, but over the following months, I intend to add the fruits of my music, film and art projects. I will still keep updating my Tumblr blog! I like the blog format for sharing spontaneous posts about quick ideas, drafts and current interests, but the folio website is good for freezing these projects at moments in time and offering a place where everything can be viewed together, like chapters. Anyway, have a LOOK and let me know what you...

GLASS BELL

I just stumbled across this on DESIGNBOOM – a cool instrument made from a glass bowl, by industrial designer PAZ BROUK. From the designboom website, here is a description of the project: “The instrument draws from the sound of church bells but creates its unusual sound from the combined effect of the movement of water, touch and echo of wood upon glass, and vibration of the materials… The bowl of the instrument is blown glass, filled with water and strung unto a long rope that hangs from ceiling to floor. a wooden clapper is attached at the bottom of the rope, to be tapped lightly against the bowl during use. users control the pitch of the instrument by striking and tilting the glass at different angles, causing the water to move and alternately rise and fall from the side walls of the glass. different initial levels of water will also produce different effects.” Cool! I wonder how it would affect the sound if you also varied the thickness of the glass shell, or made it a different shape so that water can pool in some areas and not others… The sound reminds me a bit of the HYDROPHONE and glass ringing EXPERIMENTS which I posted earlier this year! I like the water sloshing sound you get with it too towards the end… (Source:...

PREVIEW

http://ekm.works/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/tumblr_lpgxd9kd0I1qc80zi.mp3 … So today I have been messing around with various instruments, contact mics, sequencers and such – and here is the result! This short audio track marks the beginning of a solo project (just for jolly) where I explore the mediums of sound and moving image to articulate ideas about various subjects which are currently of interest to me – Yes, I know that sounds vague, but I don’t want to give too much away too soon :) A few more evenings/weekends in hibernation and I should have something resembling a project which I will (of course) share on here in draft form. I’m not looking to win any awards, I just want to play with some ideas which have been kicking around my brain for a while now… Opinions are more than welcome and there is certainly more to...
