“By Noise, The Culture, The Access, By Exposure” by Microtherapist

https://youtu.be/t1NZyd3fl6Q This one is from December 2019. I used Ableton Live’s Simpler and Tension devices.

The title comes from a note I wrote myself in early December 2019.

Jimmy Lem recorded this on 10 Dec 2019 for Blissville Electro-Magnetic Laboratories & Blister Pop Unlimited.

Two different mixes existed for this. Both were completed on the day of recording. This version presents a combination of both.

Photograph by Jimmy Lem at an unknown time – best guess is 2015-16, summer. Kodak Gold film was used, 200 ASA. Film was developed in Nov 2022.

“Forgery In Progress” by Microtherapist (26 Nov 2022)

https://youtu.be/4yhF0q_gCgc This one used mainly Ableton Live or Max4Live devices, including two arpeggiators. The sound generation was from a Live instrument made by Brian Funk called Snapple Can Pad. The midi used here was from another generative session I did earlier with a piano sound and for this, I ran the midi track through all sorts of modulated Live midi devices.

The title comes from a note I wrote myself either in October or November of this year.

Jimmy Lem recorded this on 26 Nov 2022 for Blissville Electro-Magnetic Laboratories & Blister Pop Unlimited.

“Cross-Eyed Chives” by Microtherapist (30 Sep 2019)

https://youtu.be/8LeHn2u0Ho0 For this, I used the following VCV Rack modules – Blamsoft XFX Wave, some Surge VOCs, JW Modules NoteSeq, Audible Instruments Tidal Modular and Random Sampler, some Vult Basal oscillators and AS TriLFO.

The title comes from a note I wrote myself on 31 May 2019. I grow chives every year. I like them in scrambled eggs with some black pepper and porcini salt.

Jimmy Lem recorded this on 30 Sept 2019 for Blissville Electro-Magnetic Laboratories & Blister Pop Unlimited.

“Nursing Your Prose Through Troubled Times” by Microtherapist (09 Nov 2022)

https://youtu.be/w1QC6sqN4Xo This was done on Eurorack system that includes a Braids clone and a Neutron semi-modular system, a Zoom MS-70CDR. This was recorded into Ableton Live 11 and used some effects there as well. There’s a bit of a gap in the recording when I was changing the main audio out cables and I kept “tape” rolling.

This was recorded on 09 Nov 2022 by Jimmy Lem for Blissville Electro-Magnetic Laboratories & Blister Pop Unlimited.

“Accumulate A New Dimension” by Microtherapist (27 Oct 2022)

https://youtu.be/VCrzQtQCOr0 This was done in Bitwig, a relatively new DAW for me, using some randomization and generative techniques similar to those I explore in AUM and Live. The instrument used Arturia’s Buchla Easel V. This was recorded on 27 Oct 2022 by Jimmy Lem for Blissville Electro-Magnetic Laboratories & Blister Pop Unlimited.

“My Fur Again” by Microtherapist (2019 Sep 02)

https://youtu.be/a89gDMYrkqg Fieldscaper performance by Jimmy Lem, 02 Sep 2019, Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve, Lloyd Neck, NY, USA.

As a side note, I tend to release Fieldscaper as “A Moral Vicinity” and it’s entirely possible that some version of this recording and my earlier “LaughPicnic” post may end up in or as something by “A Moral Vicinity.”
