Another little video that’s been posted elsewhere I know, but it’s here too now, and I’ve been enjoying my Palm PDA renaissance of late, especially the whole controller experience. There’s more to come too.
Originally I wanted to release Punchdrunk as a collection of 60 1 minute songs which described a single fictitious day in a person’s life. However, I’ve never finished all the songs. So I’ve decided to release it in a series of batches.
The first batch is 20 instrumental tracks, which would have been the first 20 songs on the whole album.
After this I’ll release another two batches of instrumentals and then finally a collection of the actual songs that I did finish.
released 09 February 2013
These tracks were made with Bhajis loops on a Palm PDA, a Tungsten T3, Zire 72, Tungsten E and a Song Clie NX73V.
I’ve posted this elsewhere but thought I’d get the maximum value out of it by posting it here too. It’s fun experimenting with old and new tech all in one go.
I’ve posted this over at PalmSounds but I really like this and it’s kind of a fun thing to be doing with old and new tech all in one place.
Some more new (old) music from me that I still haven’t finished and now don’t intend to. This short collection of tracks is probably even less polished than the previous, but it is something I really liked the idea of, but just didn’t finish off in the end.
I hope you enjoy it. Just remember, it isn’t finished at all!
Another track from my long awaited collection. I need to make some progress with this lot soon.
This is a track made in Bhajis Loops as part of a collection of 60 tracks that was to called ‘Punch Drunk’. I’m still working on getting the whole thing finished, but I thought that I’d share some of the tracks to see if anyone has any views on them.
The original plan was that there would be 60 tracks each of 60 seconds long, which explains why this track is only a minute long!
I tried the old Synchopoolp app on my OSX Lion Mac but I didn’t really have any hope that it would run. I was wrong. It worked just fine. It synced a bhajis file from my T3 and it rendered out all of the tracks as separate .wav files too. No problem. Amazing to find that this software still works after all this time.
That really is a great bit of software. What else would you expect though?
My T3 powered up again after a very long gap, and once I’d restored it from back up (it doesn’t have persistent memory), it was fine. Just like the last time I used it. Amazing what you can squeeze into just 64mb of memory.
How’s that for a spot of luck. I was continuing to add sites to my Pearltrees collection on mobile music and stumbled over this site which has a bunch of .prc files available for free download.
I’ll be taking a look at all of them and posting some thoughts over the next few days. If you’re interested in taking a look the site is here.
I have this in my diary as the birthday of miniMusic, the Palm and iOS mobile music company. I think that they’re 13 years old today. Having just checked their site there’s no update there. In fact, the site hasn’t been updated since the 9th of March 2011. It’s a shame. I hope it doesn’t just fade away.
Anyway, assuming that miniMusic sticks around, as I most sincerely hope they do, here’s a very happy birthday to miniMusic.
