head(banger)phones – FINAL

I’m getting ready to present the head(banger)phones for the ITP Winter Show.  A little bit of solder helped to get rid of the short circuit problem I was having periodically with the accelerometer.  I also replaced the orchestral audio samples I originally used to demo the head(banger)phones with some synth samples I recorded from my Sidstation.

The head(banger)phones are a personal music device made up of a pair of headphones and a sensor.  When the user wears the head(banger)phones, the motion and position of her head triggers different sounds, creating a dynamic interactive musical experience.

New Gear: Zoom H2 Handy Recorder

I received my new Zoom H2 Handy Recorder in the mail today. I can’t wait to try it out. I will definitely be bringing it on my trip to San Francisco this weekend (October 6-8), and look forward to using it to make and demos, field recordings and podcasts in the future.

Hepnova Recording Sessions


I haven’t blogged in a few days because I have been back in Arizona working on the new Hepnova album with Nico, Sophia and a whole cast of supporting characters . I will be back in NYC on August 14. The Hepnova album is due to be released in late 2007/early 2008.
