01 After shaking for several minutes, my computer turned off (it was running only on power supply) the vibrations just unplugged it.
02 well, it’s a stereo piezo transducers sandwich !
03 ln the basement of my office burldind, some pipes are vibrating because ot the heavy traffic surrounding the building. There is also a heater running in the background.
04 Several contact mics were placed on various spots of the mechanism of a tumtable to catch all sorts of vibrations. the high-pitched sounds are the noise made by the unplugged ground cable.
05 This an extract of a max/msp live performance at Espace Julien, Marseille. 2004 (Iive stage recording). The subwoofer just died.
06 Saliva sounds recorded in front of my fridge. (the sounds from the fridge are recorded separately)
07 Live at Totally Intense Fractal Mindgaze Hut, Oakland. 2008. There were no subwoofers, so I tried to emulate some floor vibrations (it was a wooden floor) by putting the bass loudspeaker directly on the floor.
08 Recording done using broken headphones at max volume as loudspeakers.
09 This live set (Paradox, Tilburg. 2006) was done uslng acoustic sounds of an extemal hard drive. The sound done by this harddrive was sa annoying at home thai it was kind of fun to use it for an artistic purpose.
10 I can’t remember where and when I recorded this, I just know it was on one of my “field recordings” minidiscs.
Assembled and mastered by Francisco Meirino at Shiver Mobile in 2008. ”Download
