RPM Challenge 2016

This is The Challenge – Record an album in 28 days, just because you can. That’s 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material recorded during the month of February. Go ahead…put it to tape.

I was up for it. So I created a profile on the RPM Challenge page, recorded, processed the audio and then posted it to bandcamp. Awesome.

LIVE with Celebrations (from Port Moody)

Going /LIVE on DS106 Radio is always celebration!

You never know what you’re going to hear when you tune in to DS106 Radio. You’ll always hear a great selection of tunes via /AUTODJ, but it gets a whole lot better when someone unexpectedly grabs the stream and goes /LIVE.

It was a late Sunday afternoon and I was in my kitchen preparing our Sunday night dinner when @bryanjack grabbed the DS106 Radio stream. @bryanjack was trying to make his way home from a Saturday night out in Port Moody, which was proving difficult to so. I decided to respond to his broadcast.

Suddenly, his broadcast stopped and then started again. @bryanjack had made it home. I asked him to describe what he saw.  @bryanjack described his surroundings. They matched his Instagrams. Perfect!

I could just make out the sound of wedding reception at Old Orchard Hall. Distant music and happy voices.

Then @bryanjack played some tunes. A perfect soundtrack to a Sunday night meal preparation in the kitchen.

I realised a little too late that I should have been recording his broadcast. So I grabbed my mobile phone, placed it near the speaker of my tablet device and the hit record. Of course there were technical difficulties and the sound quality wasn’t the best, but I managed to record a reasonable amount of his awesome performance.

Select Play to listen to @bryanjack playing ‘Dead flowers’ and ‘Suspicious minds’ live on DS106 Radio from Port Moody while I cook in my kitchen on Sunday 28 July 2012.

I used my mobile phone to record @bryanjack’s performance on DS106 Radio. Not the best, but it got the job done.

DS106: DS106 Field Report – Skating alongside the Suyeong river

I recorded this DS106 field report while skating alongside the Suyeong river in Busan, South Korea. This is the first ds106 field report where I’ve made use of video. Unlike my previous field reports where sound or what I’m hearing has been the focus. Here the visual or what I’m seeing is the focus of the field report. The start of this field report was recorded just near the location of my Gwangan Bridge and I’PARK field report.
