344 – ISS & Other Satellites

Another little piece playing around with a few more of the lovely space samples from http://www.svengrahn.pp.se/sounds/sounds.htm. This has snippets and loops from the ISS, from Soyuz and a Maroc Morse Code satellite broadcast. The melody was a live improvisation using Animoog on the iPad recorded directly into Ableton Live.

I hope you enjoy it?

342 – China 2

This piece is born out of my second session playing with the lovely bunch of space samples from http://www.svengrahn.pp.se/sounds/sounds.htm.

It uses a couple of tones from an old Chinese satellite along with a drone made using csGrain on the iPad.

It has a mysteriously haunting feel to it that I remember from my late night shortwave radio explorations.

I hope you like it?

341 – Soyuz

Whilst looking for a little sonic inspiration, I came across a lovely batch of fantastic recordings at http://www.svengrahn.pp.se/sounds/sounds.htm. I use a couple of the space recording samples to flesh out this simple little motif that throws me back to the repetitive melodies that I would regularly discover somewhere odd along the shortwave frequencies as a child.

This is the result of my first hour with these samples to hand… expect more, hopefully more developed ideas to follow!
