UNGRUND Live @ Ground 3

On September the 7th Ungrund will play the Ground 3 festival. This festival is FREE. The location where we will be performing is not entirely clear to us yet… since the city of The Hague does not have a Leeghwaterstraat. Stay tuned for updates here.

Update: Leeghwaterstraat is not on Google maps.. The street is almost devoured into where the Megastores are now. But the end bit, close to the Gamma store, is still called Leeghwaterstraat. Another mystery solved!

Back in the Netherlands again. I have been working at NoTam with Aslaug Holgersen for way more time than we thought was possible. I am very grateful for NoTam’s hospitality and their general supercoolness, tusen takk! I managed to spend a lot of time programming a very very big patch in Max/MSP. And got quite some form-part sketches ready for the new piece. The final touches will be done this month. And I hope we can perform it somewhere in the near future.

Currently I am almost 16 hours a day working on even more Max/MSP patches. I am building a polyphonic wavetable/waveshaping synth which is going to sound amazing, believe me! Next to that I dabbled a bit with generative music. And I have some sketches for a new tape-piece lying around.

Next to that my electro-acoustic noise unit with Léon Spek, Ungrund, is going to perform on the 7th of September in our hometown The Hague at the Ground 3 festival. No further details yet…

Next to all this there is some theatre sound jobs as always.

btw: Another huge thanks goes out to Kane McGuire at the Cycling 74 offices for swiftly solving the weird registration problems I had with Max5.
