    A compilation that takes the lullaby genre into the realm of experimental electronic music, assembled from an open call for experimental lullabies launched in May 2014. Composed for Nintendo, Atari, Pure Data, Supercollider, D-Box, tape recorders, as well as ultraStethoscopes or using radioactive materials, these recordings treat the lullaby genre as an example of consciousness-altering music.

about

Improvised, live coded audiovisual performance. Open source tools used where Overtone, Shadertone and the Clojure Programming language. Hardware used was a computer, a Monome (programmed with Clojure as a sequencer) and a Leapmotion (programmed with Clojure to control graphics). The piece is inspired by random satellite data pointed at the Cassiopeia constellation.
Mastered in London by Andrea Ruffino.
