Per-Arne Hognert
"False spring tape dreams"

All recordings took place in my bedroom if not otherwise specified.

March 24, 2014 - Got the tape in the mail.
* Recorded an improvised sad sounding tune with the Casio SA-77.
* From the furnace room in the basement: Making noise with a bunch of firewood. Some metal thingy. Chopping firewood. Lighting the furnace.

March 26, 2014
* Atari Punk Console noise.
* Just outside the house: Grinding a handful of gravel.
* From an empty house my parents are renovating: Sounds of an old detuned piano that has some broken strings.
* From my dad's old barn: Fan with bad bearings spinning in the wind.
* Two 16 note tunes (in a major scale) generated by a piece of software I'm working on.
* Korg Monotribe synthesizer noises.

March 30, 2014
* Outdoors: Rock thrown at empty oil drum. Birds tweeting, the wind and the sound of cars driving by.
* From my dad's workshop: Messing around with random metal rods and a bunch of scrap metal. Banging my fist against a large metal drum. Slamming a large heavy door.
* Outdoors: Conversing with the cat.
* Went for a walk in a wooded area: Throwing pinecones in a pool of water. Grinding some jagged rocks. Throwing said rocks in a pool of water. Walking on a sandy path. Birds tweeting. Water trickling in a creek. Water running through a pipe. More tweets.

March 31, 2014
* Monotron and Monotron Duo sounds and cassette tape of me talking. Passed through the Monotron Delay.

The 'Sony Microcassette-corder M-455' was used for this recording. I was a bit disappointed in how much noise from the motor that was pick up by the mic. Originally I planned on using a 'Radionette' microcassette recorder, but when I recieved it in the mail it turned out to be in terrible condition and it sounded pretty much like crap.
