I am a free improvisor from Reno, Nevada USA that just happen to come across you. Actually, I ran into a post from a Noah Roberts who uses linux and adour to record interested me as I am getting a test computer together with planetCCRMA kernel to record on. I have a drum computer I made that is cased in a luggage suitcase with a tv-out card (monitors are so heavy!). I am working on making my own e-drums. The prototype was quite workable but I need better switches for the drums. I can't afford midi stuff so I take out the controller from a computer keyboard and solder switches to it that trigger wav's through a program called BacktoBasics8 (have version 9 but won't work with the keyboard). Hope to put a dual-computer unit with one for effects (I keep getting too much hiss thru analog) and one for looping using freeware ambiloop. My one guitar is from toys-r-us and actually plays very well. I have a cheap electric guitar
that I have modified for my free improvisation with an extra pickup above the first fret. Sorry but my current improv involves using turntables but I'm not a DJ or anything like that. more like an explorer of sounds. I am a producer at the community access tv station here and have produced a noisefestival band I've played in as well as solo and comedy stuff. working on doing more digital video stuff on computer.
have stuff on soundclick and my latest is a new age piece done mostly with out-of-tune guitar (ok, the b and high e tring was out-of-tune). Hope to release my next CD as a solo improv guitar one with old material from cassette tapes as well as new recorded on my linux computer. I have been cassette tape trading with others from 1979-1995 (which then died out) and written stuff for 'The Improvisor' magazine (now a web site) and others I can't remember. My influences includes Hans Reichel, Fred Frith, HenryCow/Arts Bears, Robert Fripp/King Crimson, and alot of underground improv musicians that I sometimes correspond with (depends how busy touring they are).
