Attack of the Night BugleNoise Challenge #10: The End

The Bugle Bike

For this last challenge I unleashed the awesome bugle bike upon London traffic. Sounding out both a signal of attack and a warning of hazards ahead, the bugle fog horn allowed me to claim my space within the traffic and alert others to my presence.

Back to workNoise Challenge #7: The Cues

Shamelessly ripping off a famously ripped off drum break as well as cold war number broadcasts sampling ice cream van melodies, this is how I motivated myself to return to work and shift my focus on the one.

Work Sense Hifi TestNoise Challenge #5: The Senses

Find out about the sense of purpose, the sense of duty, the sense of achievement as well as a sense of something wrong. It includes a warning of the intrinsic risk of a sense of humour at the workplace.

A journey through basic sensations you may experience during work, narrated, described and illustrated in the patronising style of stereo test records.

techno elocution classFeatured&Noise Challenge #4: The Soundtrack

Listening to a track that much, you got to have a go yourself.

In a late night burst of energy, I used my dad’s broken harmonica, a bass jew’s harp and a high pitch jew’s harp to record separate tracks by playing along to what (I thought) I could hear.

Most fun was teaching my collaborator jlai how to pronounce the German lyrics to do the voice recording until I finally threw  all the tracks together in a truly cavalier fashion.

The original Track is Dein Schweiss by Sven Väth.

The sighNoise Challenge #2: The Little Things

At this point optimism was not the right word to describe it.
Maybe a tired hope, that this could still be made to work
and maybe not fail.
The sigh carried the weight of the disappointment,
when I gave up.
