for almost 10yrs I’ve been absolutely fascinated by granular synthesis, the endless pursuit of the perfect grain 🙂 A video posted by Tom Hall (@tomhallsonics) on Jul 27, 2016 at 5:12pm PDT

Wrap Up 2015

Wrapped up the year with a nice gig at South of Sunset, put on by the great people at Volume. Played a 30-min live set along side Marcus Fischer and Shuttle 358. Recording from the desk.

Making Arrays

What I’ve been doing; • Visual Experiments in jit.gen (chasing the perfect harmonograph) see below • Playing with the Roli Seaboard Rise – making an interface for it in Max • Prepping for a Live a/v set for the guys at VOLUME details here • Cycling • AXXONN dj sets at Mandrake bar the last Monday […]

Berlin Pic Essay

Just back from Ableton’s Loop Festival – will talk more about that soon. For the moment here is a few pictures I took during the week.

I have a few workshops I’m running and a neat Max Connect Event. I highly recommend attending all of them, even if you’re not a Max programmer. […]
