Daily Sound Project

About this project:
Original aim –  to create a daily audio doodle for a year.
Readjusted aim – now no time constraint, create 500 audio doodles.
What’s an aduio doodle? This could be a whispered voice, a guitar loop, cut and paste, sound collage, song snippet, wall of chords, random notes, lengthy improv, field recording.
Why? Why ever not. It keeps my creative wheels rolling.

Go see hear the latest ones at Daily Sound on SoundCloud.

    Skooba diving has some flavour of the bhundu boys, maybe in their improvisational period.
