This a pretty weird Max for Live patch that Tyondai Braxton requested. It’s a little hard to explain but I’ll give it a shot. It allows him to specify up to 12 notes that can be sent out once for every x number of times the patch receives either that note or any note. Note lengths are based on the note that triggers the note on message. He can specify a note that, when received, brings the count of each slot back to 1. He can also specify a note that, when received, sets the specified note of each slot up one half step and will send them down an octave once 12 of them are received.
Balún is back and they are bringing their friends Peptalk and El Medio to the party! Check out LOTS of new jamz from Balún’s next album and start getting cozy with Peptalk (members of Xiu Xiu/Tyondai Braxton) and El Medio (who is back from his first Latin American tour)!

Ok folks, here is the first totally complete Peptalk song! It even has a video that was made by a program that will do live video mixing as we play live music. This NYC heat wave has me feeling the sunshine! More Peptalk coming at you soon: twitter.com/PeptalkMusic
I’ve been working on a video patch for Peptalk. Here’s a still from the patch.
The LA Times wrote an article about the show I’ll be playing this Tuesday at the Disney Concert Hall with Tyondai Braxton and the LA Philharmonic. They wrote tons of rad stuff about my Brooklyn pals Matt Marks, Ted Hearne, and David Little. Check out the article here:
This is an instrument for users of M4L and fans of Game of Thrones. It is essentially a sample pack of animal sounds that you select by scrolling through a few sigils of Westeros. I’ll make a standalone application soon for anyone who doesn’t use M4L.
