TouchRadio 12 | 8.01.06

TouchRadio 12 is now posted. Jacob Kirkegaard performs Eldfjall live in Spain...

Jacob Kirkegaard writes: "The sounds I here perform with were recorded in two ways: with an acoustic microphone and with an accelerometer. For the acoustic recordings I used a Sanken CSS-5 which I held very closely to the tiny bubbling surface. The accelerometer was inserted approximately 4 cm into the earth and picked up a denser timbre than the acoustic microphone. As opposed to the Eldfjall CD release (where I chose to let the sounds stand by themselves), I here mixed the different sounds with each other to create a more organic sound and a narrative. I began the concert with creaking ice from different lakes in Iceland. These were also recorded with accelerometers. None of the sounds have been processed."

And we are also delighted to report that TouchPod is now fully operational as a podcast in iTunes again...
