I am using Audiobus 3 on an iPad 9. Into this I loaded some midi stuff – Rozeta Collider, where I pick a scale etc, then I load Midiflow Randomizer and then load a Scaler. You don’t see me do anything here in the interest of time, but it defaults to C Natural Minor, so that is quantizing all the midi coming into it. From there, I send the midi into the Aparillo synth, which is where I spend most of my time. On the audio page, I load no effects, because the delay and verb in Aparillo are fine with me but you can imagine that for a longer piece, I might. Then I also load AudioShare for quick stereo recording no uploading to Dropbox then to PC later on.
I am not an educator and do not claim to be. I don’t 100% remember what I did here nor do I care to create a comprehensive overview of my workflow, which might impair the artistic goals I have for the pieces as I improvise them.
I am sharing whatever I can remember to inspire other people to explore for themselves instead of watching YouTube videos when they should be exploring!!
Working in AudioBus 3 and on the MIDI side, I used Rozetta Particles or Collider (I’ve forgotten) to generate notes, MidiFlow Randomizer to mix it up a bit and then ScaleBud by Cem Olkay to quantize down to a scale before sending it to the sound generator / synth Kronecker and then over to AudioShare to record to wav file. I believe I added some effects between the synth and recorder later on but can’t tell from this vid.
The entire audio was 36 minutes and this is just a short 90 second video excerpt from that “performance.”

I’m once again interested in this blog after at least a year or two of near indifference. I work on so many different things and within each are also some very different variations, ranging from very experimental works of my own creation to more accessible creativity as well as works of criticism and social commentary; – Music – Writing – Photography – Painting/drawing – Video projects – Technical IT – Music gear – Career – Life management – Politics – Social debate and commentary in the form of critiques of actions vs critiques of people themselves – Cooking – Weight loss and health
Each thing has its own audience and needs its own attention. On top of that, some of my social media – like this WordPress blog – is not truly dedicated to a narrow area and instead has become mostly feeds from whatever and wherever I can send to it without much thought. Sadly, I think many new people may come here first because I parked this blisterpop.com domain here.
I’d also like to dig deep into someone else’s work within each area and maybe establish some more personal and distanced relationships via these types of avenues. It seems like many groups on Facebook and reddit are decent places to discover new people and work and at the same time share my own stuff with people who’d be interested.
Overall, I would like to reckon with the sloppy almost lazy way I do not follow up with social media with the world at large enough and instead bother my friends and family a bit too much about things that they probably aren’t too interested in. In the past, this has led to some strained friendships, leaving Facebook about 3 times and some other shifts and bumps in my continued larger journey as a human being temporarily on this plant, just trying to communicate and make things for whatever reason that would be.
