I don't know where the title came from, named it before I got started, needed to call it something, and hell, I don't have a better idea for a title.

Bactrian Chorus of Drones

[Download: audio | video | cover images]

Originally this was a part of The Tenth Day, but it wasn’t featured as prominently as I thought it should be. I’ve tweaked it a little, I’m uncertain if you’ll be able to recognize it—more so if I hadn’t mentioned it.

I had a blast with the video too, until the files got so large that Gimp choked on em, brought down my whole machine. Took four hours to get running again. Yikes.

The background came from a featured image I just made for No Help For That (from 2012!). I’m making featured images for posts I find missing them—there’s gonna be a lot of them, and they’re mostly gonna be old.

Edit: I’m having a doozy of a time posting this one. I keep getting server 500 errors, and I can’t tell where they’re coming from. It’s almost as if the database or cache is choking on one of the images I’m trying to attach to the post. 14,400 squared, wouldn’t think that would be an issue. 16,500 x 60 shouldn’t be a problem either. Who knows. Maybe something my theme can’t handle, or triggers some bad math somewhere.

Error logs shows: mysqli_query(): (HY000/2013): Lost connection to MySQL server during query in wp-db.php on line 1877 as well as Illegal string offset 'width' in template-tags.php on line 115 and Illegal string offset 'height' in template-tags.php on line 116. I suppose it could be trying to retrieve width and height information before WordPress completes saving and crunching the files, and freaking out. Or I could have corrupted my database somewhere along the line. I don’t know. I’m keeping an eye open, and working around it the best I can. I hope it straightens itself out, maybe on the next cache refresh—but I’m afraid to do it manually, let the crone job do it’s thing and see what happens. I guess in the trolley car problem I’d not act, my actions could just make shit worse. I don’t know. I can’t predict the future, I’ve tried, I’m a miserable failure.

The Lesser Pump


This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series The Lesser Pump

The beginning and the end are worn.
Virtual instruments controlled by samples.
A G-man posing as a number station.
A preachy New Year’s reveler.
Ice calving from an iceberg.
A hammer strike.

Storm

I spent three hours on the audio. Three hours to clean up the original 21 minute noisy recording so that it didn’t make you want to rip your headphones off. I was going for something less overbearing white noise, and more rain.

At some point it may use it as a backing track to something.

I also spent a lot of time on the video too, but that was mostly re/learning running bash scripts in Automator actions. And rendering, a bunch of time for my spunky little laptop to render

Video Collection

I put together a Dronecast video compilation, featuring a simple vid for each episode. Took a week to make, three days to upload, and six days for the servers to crunch. Aargh, it was pretty torturous.

It was made using freely available software on a dinky laptop. I’m happy with it.

UPDATE: I just made a YouTube playlist for those that have trouble either the Internet Archive player.

Ceiling Fan


The percussive thud isn’t from the fan, it’s the heartbeat of my soon to be born niece or nephew.

The download link above is for the audio (m4a) which I sent out for my podcast (I couldn’t justify hitting my subscribers with a large video podcast). The original audio and video | the new video, as part of my Video Compilation.
