BrainSong Day 2013

The BrainSong
26th December 2013 - 
starting at 00:00 GMT
The “BrainSong” is a 24 hour long – what? - It's hard to know how to describe the work – an 'Internal Soundscape', a 'Stream of Psychedelic Vocalization' – I have settled on 'a Sound Work' This is it's first complete broadcast, a version was broadcast on as 24 1 hour long programmes, starting in March 2011 and ending in November 2012 but forcing it into this format meant that there was around 2 hours cut from the entire run.

It was started around 2000 and took two and a half years to complete. There are over 1700 Samples lasting from 1 second to 1 minute 30 seconds with an average length of 5 seconds, they are compsed of much Psychedelic madness from the Cosmos OR (Astral+[SpaceTime]) { Leary & Ginsberg reconstructed from the A.F.P. (AualFootPrints) }, the BOOSH, the PowerPuffs and thus "the evil" HIM, a naked civil servant and his evil twin uncle OTO, "in the medicine chest", "In Our Time", Radio Schools Programs, and not forgetting the SUDO-RANDOM WHISPERS of CONNECTEDNESS.........

It was written from remembrances of the last tab I saw 16 years ago on Feb 1996

To make them easier to find I divided them into 57 Subjects from “angels” to “worry”. These samples can be downloaded from

The entire piece can be downloaded at

The BRAIN song was intended to be 8 hours long but when it was first put together it was 15 minuets too long, and has now become 24 hours long. 


{the time I put in compared to the length of sound I get out} 
 Sensors show a large Time Compression Error between - 

(Time_IN) & (Time_OUT)

 (input = 1920 Seconds) (output = 6.3 Seconds ) DIFF = 304.8

That's 5 H.P.S. (hours per second) - I hope time is infinite if I'm using it at that rate, BUT even if it is AM I ?. Say I'm 65 at my death, that leaves 20 years, then the BRAIN SONG could be 3.2 years long if I work one night per week for the rest of my life.

The above Warp Factor (WF) was on the old 486, I don't know if the WF has changed with the new machine, there are a lot more effects in the new Gold Wave which would lengthen the WF, but it all happens so much faster I don't have time to sit around and work out the new WF but I can play a lot more games so while WF may be shorter my Down Time is greater.

At present I'm working on a video to accompany the BrainSong audio, as I'm producing little more that 10 minutes a month it won't be ready by December or even this decade in fact at that rate even this century – 2028 is the expected release date maybe on my 72nd birthday. As the previous generation of men in my family didn't make it much past 60 and I'm 56 that might be a tad optimistic. I had hoped to have around 3 hours done for the broadcast but my computer expired at the beginning of the month so I may have very little to post.

Some Frames from the video


And a merry Christ-mess to you all

And what would christmess be with out a bit of commercialism?
