moving forward towards boston by Brian Green

Im packing up my buddys car thursday of next week and finally will be heading back to Boston, I plan to have a much higher output of content this year and look forward to getting this move over so i can start having a normal work space and work flow again.

Right now im on the floor of a spare room in my parents house which has drained a lot out of me but it will all work out in the end.

Im going to be releasing a new singing bowl session every day that the previous one hits 1000 views before i move to Boston after that i will start uploading a new session every Friday. Hopefully having this schedule will help more people know when to listen to the new one.

Below is a session i put up tonight.

Im also working on a lot more collage and sketch work as well as other physical mixed media works i plan to start showing as things feel right so keep checking back for that.

Milltown Cassette by Brian Green

Around 2009 i started going to a old mill that had been shut down in 75' to take field recordings on a regular basis, I had collected them for and sat on most of them until this year when i decided it would be fun to use them in a tape that would later be called Milltown.

The sounds collected are anything from natural ambience to using parts of the mill almost as a instrument. In this video you see me recording the turning of gears in a electrical box. Most of the recordings for this project were taken with a little zoom H4 handheld recorder.

Above you can see some footage of various parts of the mill i took video of back when i was recording.

Below you can see the finished cassette with hand hammered pine case. It is a limited edition run of 50 so get it while you can. Pick of a copy from A Giant Fern.

The Past Few Days by Brian Green

I have really been slacking these past few days on the blog so here is what i have neglected.

Here is some footage that gives you a little look into a new tape i am working on that i hope to be released in the next month or so if all goes well. It is made up from 3 sounds each only 1-2 seconds long.

I sat down and recorded some sounds using a tape recorder that had the eraser head ripped out so you can record over and over on top of each later and then processed it.

Sat down with my 40h last night and made some slow and drifting sounds to end the night with. Maybe i will work this stuff into a longer piece for a release down the road or it might be used as a back layer in the upcoming shades of waves.
