new adventure in life
Hello Friends at Electronic Cottage!
This is my new audiovisual creation:
new adventure in life
It is available exclusively here at Electronic Cottage.
I created new adventure in life
from Thursday, November 22
through Friday, November 30, 2018
in Gainesville, Florida.
Above is a slideshow of photographs
that I took with my iPhone 6
during those nine days.
Below are recordings that I made
with a Sony ICD-PX470 stereo digital dictaphone.
The four audio players below contain
high-quality 320 kbps MP3 streaming audio files.
These should work well for people with fast Internet speeds.
For those of you with slower or less reliable/consistent Internet speeds
I have provided 128 kbps MP3 audio players below.
The second track features Lumen K.
Stanley is featured throughout.
On tracks 2-4 I played
Monotron, Monotron Duo, Monotron Delay,
and Moog Model D iPhone app synthesizers
through a JBL Clip 3 speaker.
I will make the audio recordings available as downloadable WAV or MP3 files upon request.
Can't wait to check these out when I'm back home later!!
I love your adventures!
I’ve been jones’in for a new Hal McGee dictaphone piece. The slideshow is a great intro—setting the stage for the audio adventure. I really enjoyed listening to the great mix of noise and discourse. Wit and wisdom worthy of Dr. Amp. IMNSHO!
Hope u are getting better. Btw your voice even though u are sick. It does sounds good. I like that u call your dictaphones a companion and ritual.
Great and fun stuff as usual, Hal! Sorry to hear you've been ill. Sounds like a real bad case of the cold too.
Hello everybody, thanks for listening! Do you all like this format of slideshow plus streaming audio? I published this new audio creation here on this page because I want to demonstrate that any of you can do the same thing. If you have a new audio recording that you want to to share with the EC community you do not need to use an outside service such as Bandcamp or Internet Archive. We can host it and publish it right here on the EC website. You can send your audio files to me via WeTransfer or Google Drive and we can make streaming audio players like you have used here. We can also make your recordings downloadable. Check out the posts by new EC member Tom Furgas. He is making his music streamable and downloadable here at EC. One more thing: do you like the way I did my recordings here? I kept them raw — I did not layer them into thick assemblages like I usually do?
Hi Hal! Just wanna say that I enjoy both this style as well as your usual thick assemblage mixes. It's nice with some variety.
Thanks, Per-Arne! I appreciate your feedback. Yep, variety is a good thing.
I think the idea is great and I love your assemblages! Good work, Hal.
Always good stuff from you, Hal. Concerning your observations about the correct way to return bills, I have no preference concerning this. In fact, I hardly use physical money anymore. Two reasons. One is that it's much easier to do cashless transactions with my credit/debit card, most places have this now, even charity shops and buses. And number 2, recently in the UK new £5 and £10 notes have been introduced, and they are a nasty plastic, slithery kind of note, which is really easy to lose, and is really hard to fold. I don't like them, so cashless is doubly better.
Jim, thanks for your reactions. I use credit card if I don't have enough cash on me to make a purchase. I think most people here in the USA use some kind of debit or credit card to make purchases on a daily basis. Me, for some reason, I still prefer cash. Maybe it's wee bit of paranoia at work here, because I think that it's harder to track cash transactions than plastic card.
Thank you, Frank. Your comments are quite helpful. To be honest, I too personally prefer the more mixed collages or assemblages.
Update... it must be my headphones, that play on the left! I just was listening to the newest of CRGIII and same problem.
Frank, you are correct. After I completed the transcription from the dictaphone I discovered that the mini mixer that I was using an interface was defective.
Hello Chris! Thanks for listening and for your comments. These dictaphone pieces are enjoyable and EASY to create. Most of all they are FUN to make and hopefully FUN to listen to! I know that I am a simpleton, but in this world of ours there can never be enough fun. Glad you like the slideshow. That's a neat feature. I can vary the speed of the slideshow so that they pictures change faster.

Great stuff as always, Hal! You prove the old saying that life itself is a work of art!
Thanks for listening, Adam!
Fantastic! I especially like the Monotron Delay playing here. This is a nice variation on your other assemblages, giving us a single strand instead of the mix.
Thanks for listening, Trevor!
That was cool, made me smile. Thanks.
