islesofyou :: First Version Online Now

The first version of the web app islesofyou is now online. It’s a softly launched beta version and consists of a couple of proto tracks by Lump200 – you can audio record yourself into those tracks and store your version after having signed in. And you can invite friends or team mates to react to your version or to create their own by sending them the link of the project / of your version e.g.

Versions are not listed within the app yet, so please store the URLs locally or share them in the network of your choice. As different browsers work with different audio protocols, you may have to agree on a browser with the people you want to work with. The fewest picky as far as those protocols are concerned is Chrome; Safari and Edge should be compatible, too.


islesofyou is coded by gravity&storm and visually designed by sofies Kommunikationsdesign – thumbnails and video canvas are all designed by Petra Péterffy for the hybrid Lump200 releases.

We understand this development as a process. The idea is that we observe what happens with the current version and then implement an interface not only for audio contributions within projects but also for the projects themselves. So hopefully you can all become curators and initiators on islesofyou soon.

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.

Power Places

On my way from Brussels to Amsterdam I have the chance to visit Hallerbos Woods. Surrounded by a highway there are these fields of Hyacinthoides, a kind of Asparagus. They are in full blossom these days. Look.


In Amsterdam I meet bass mate Alex Schaub who has become a specialist in digital fabrication. We haven’t met for about a decade. One of the labs Alex has built up is to be found in The Waag – the place where the scene for Rembrandt’s „The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp“ took place. I get a personal tour through this historical building equipped with digital production gear. Thanks Alex. I feel that this is a place where time bends.

The third place of my research tour is the north sea. I study the flat, work on some song texts, the peaceful atmosphere allows me to consolidate certain ideas and thoughts.
