islesofyou :: Social Audio Web App Development

islesofyou is the web app that will accompany and extend the coming Lump200 album Isles of You. It’s all about participation, co-creation and crowd recording. I’m developing this open and inclusive project platform in collaboration with gravity&storm.

Every project on islesofyou starts with a piece of time (image and sound matrix) on which users can easily record and publish their own audio contributions, voice, music, whatever sounds. All published takes can be arranged and edited on the matrix – a variety of versions co-exist and can be shared as widgets. A beta version of islesofyou will be introduced with the 2nd single from the album in February 2023.

In the first stage islesofyou will be free and open to anyone – curators and contributors. So, feel free to come back and have a try in about two months.

Isles of You :: Album & App

Since some months I’ve been heading for a new release. With the developers from gravity&storm we’ve been doing a series of research for a social audio web app with a focus on participation and crowd composing. Together with the coming Lump200 album a public first version of the app will be dropping and can be tested by you quite soon. First single and more information will be ready in December.

AND NOW YOU

Unchosen album title. But the idea behind it will stay. So it’s going to be about inclusion, inclusive production. Questioning the separation of stage and floor, virtually and literally. Later on this here and elsewhere.

The Elephant In The Room // text ahead

Tiger in the morning
Eat raw meat
Because he can’t cook

Because, because
Because, because
Because, because

Contemplation kill causes

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

Let’s think of another way
To leave or to stay
To love and to pray
[repeat 4 to 6 times]

. . . [intermezzo] . . .

I think it is ok
To stay or to leave
To give and to receive
[repeat]

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room

I am the elephant in the room
Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom boom
I am the elephant in the room
