More Noises

Big Easy Five Wood
listen to this noise
Terry is involved into a quite large project with me, so he has less time for his noises this year. However, he finished at least a 2018 noise that has been set aside since then. „Big Easy Five Wood“ is kind of an accoustical analysis of the golfswing of Ernie Els. Indeed Terry took a video, extracted the time of the swing in bpm and contructed the bassline for takeaway, backswing, downswing to finsh.

New Rules
listen to this noise
With this noise Terry picked up the new golf rules for 2019 and asked Daniel and Sam to read out some of them. Its the same technique that Terry used already in 2004, as he started with Garageband his new period of noisemaking. By the way, it should be easier today to record macs voice to itself. After recording was done, the „spoken“ words had to be treated by choping, stretching, testing and trying to let them rather „sing“, finally some harmonics has been added. Lot of fiddling around…

Traffic Report
listen to this noise
Traveling by car is from one stop to the next. In between one’s glad to make some distance with the wide base tires, looking strong out of the fenders.

Mix 24 (Blind Cooking)
listen to this noise
This noise is a collection of an older drum track with snippeds from Mix 23-tracks. The noise sounds rather weird due to some randomly picked notes. Just see how it tastes..

Mix 23 (Lala Mode)
listen to this noise
Mix 23 is another result of playing with noises and the features of modern DAWs like logic. Mostly the discovery starts with a drum and bass pattern, this is Terry’s natural access to noisemaking. Than the other parts are added by trial and error. Still a strange and thrilling process and sometimes it leads to nothing.

THX I’m Fine
listen to this noise
3 Noises from Terrys Atari times in the early 90ies. „THX I’m Fine“ was a kind of curious playing with brasses, which he liked to do as an extension to the noise of his 4 piece bluesband. Now he found the old file on a harddrive and updated it here and there.

Tinkle Wrinkle
listen to this noise
Same about this noise, just some tweaks on the old file and adding a guitar. Terry made it back then after he took part at a workshop for bass players. Unfortunately the drummer did not come and Terry was thrilled to play the drums for the group of students instead playing his bass. (He did not good but good enough).

Takumi
listen to this noise
One day then Terry got a cassette from a friend and came in contact with the vital music of Jamaaladeen Tacuma. That has been an important inspiration for Terry. Making this noise then was another way of discovering more about noises. He now tuned the old file here and there but it’s basically the same as then.
Must be 1993 as Terry saw Tacuma playing at the Moers Jazz Festival, as he worked his little Steinberg bass by his big hands. Even later he visited a weird concert with Tacuma and James Blood Ulmer in Cologne. So much joy of playing, one of the best concerts Terry ever listened to!

Eight Wires
listen to this noise
Two historical noises by Terry, both having their roots in the 80ies, as Terry used his 4 Track „VestaFire“ tape recorder to discover noisemaking and practise his bassplaying.

„Eight Wires“ is made by the digitized noises of such a tape – unfortunately not very good and with a lot of humming. Some cuts and shifting of snippets creates a slightly different composition from the original scan, allthough the fact, that noises been fixed at one track sets limits. Inexperienced Delay and reverb that glued into the tracks caused problems as well. Back then Boss’ Dr. Rhythm and cheap children-keybord supported the Ken Smith 4 string bass and an old Framus 4 string, which Terry modified into a fretless bass.

5Stroke Engine
listen to this noise
At „5Stroke Engine“ Terry recreated the former tape-noise nearly complete with Logic, just some guitar licks and the bass solo are from the original tape. Therefore this noise has rather different strukture and sounds than its origin. By the way, a so called 5stroke engine was invented by a belgium engineer in 2000.

Middle East Blues
listen to this noise
Allthough the jazz agency is closed now, Terry wants to continue his work of discovering noises and rhythms and let me take part of his journey. He gave me some new noises to place on the site, this calls „Middle East Blues“. As everyone he is racked by the endless terrible news about this gaping wound in human being.

Just Kidding

Snowball System
listen to this noise
No further comment on this.


Sleepless Night
listen to this noise
This noise by Terry is a new mix from a fairly old noise made in allready 1991with an old Atari. Terry made various versions of that noise, let’s see if this is the last one.

Mix21
listen to this noise
This noise contains various snippets of elder or newer experiments with audiofiles. Some are bounced from midi, others are recorded from mouth or guitar or something else and a few loops or stock files are also included. Just playing around.

Sweet Home
listen to this noise
After a long day of hunting, working, power strugles out there in the wilderness, Terry yearns to come home for cooling down and wounds licking, to see his lovely wife, having dinner und drinking a glas of wine. Maybe two, he loves his cosy home.

Laufen
listen to this noise
This noise is about the modern wilderness. „Laufen“ means running and that is what a lot of people do through their life. Of course due to that „more action per time-living“ we experience tons of inventions and improvements which makes our lifes easier. Terry asked himself when we reach a point where it could be a good idea to split the tasks around the modern world. More like a structured factory. The one country makes e.g. computing while the other is more in mechanics und they share the results. For developement and progress running may be pretty beneficial, but do we really need thausend different models of dry shavers while the environment is stressed?

Johns Land
listen to this noise
Terry got a brandnew guitar as a christmas gift, a wonderful bright brown shining piece of art. Automatic distinctive chord gearbox, superb carbon atonal breaks and two highspeed twinscroll chargers for easy acceleration. He just has to press the red play button.

Mama Loo
listen to this noise
This Noise is a spin-off noise from a favour that Terry did for the Rhytm’n’Joy gospel choir (some years ago he also sang with them). Now he could help with some adjustments at one of their songs, necessarily he needed the recorded files therefor and made this own noise-version als well. Thanks to Franziska, Hubert and the others from Rhytm’n’Joy.

Sudden Comprehension
listen to this noise
„Sudden Comprehension“ is a matter of the usual bluesy themes in human relations. Trying to work out a balance between each others needs is no crime and has been necessarily to learn. Mistakes are welcome to the blues.

(1) Being Seen
listen to this noise
Three noises which are coming from an old atari session in 1993. Formerly it was one noise with various parts.

(2) Seeing Someone
listen to this noise
Terry broke that into pieces, picked some of the parts and let them stand for themself but used some similar or same sounds and riffs in each of the noises.

(3) Seeing Each Other
listen to this noise
So the „seeing-noises“ belonging together but coming at the same time with a different attitude.


Carla Says Get Up
listen to this noise
„Carly Says Get Up“ is primarily a session, Terry played around the new percussion drummer in the actual Logic version. This feature really makes percs far easier to play, it was a lot of mousepicking before. Good girl Carla is pleased to have a noise for her voice.

Jul 2017


My Lady Cooks
listen to this noise
Since Terry is married he gets stronger thanks to the fabulous nutrition made by his wife. She really makes healthy meals often with strange, tasty flavours. Time to make a noise for her beautyful job. (Terry cooks usally during the week. Not that bad but more an average cooking).

Alien Sung Song
listen to this noise
In this noise Terry just plays with some sounds and chords.

Blow Walk Three
listen to this noise
Like the other „blow noises“ number three comes from the 1993 atari times as well. It’s modified and shortened but the basic is the same. Terry remembers the fascination of having horns and windsections as „bandmembers“. In his former Bluestimes he even played occasionally as a two piece band just with guitar and bass. Can still work very well.

May 2017


After The Storm
listen to this noise
No further informations to that new noise by Terry. We just saw him work with synth sounds at the beginning but obviously later in the process he switched to a more orchestral association for „After The Storm“. Seems he’s still on his jazzy way.

Blow Walk Two
listen to this noise
More of the noisy walk by Blow walk two! As the „number one walk“, this noise comes from the Atari times too and has been just slightly adjusted during the last weeks. For example Terry let the oldfashened muted guitars and Vintage Clav with a new pleasure still do their rhythmic job.

Mar 2017


Blow Walk
listen to this noise
This noise by Terry comes from the old Atari days, but has been clearly modyfied at the recent period of refreshing. In fact, just the rhythm part is still similar, because Terry loved the laid back feeling of that slow walk through his noises.

Seven French Kisses
listen to this noise
Terry explores once more a sevenish groove with this noise. It’s one of the noises that may be changed in the future, but for now you can hear this pre final version.

Jan 2017


Ode an Otis
listen to this noise
Es sei an der Zeit, den Erleichterungen des Lebens, die im Hintergrundrauschen der Gewohnheiten ein unspektakuläres, aber äußerst hilfreiches Dasein ableisten, eine Anerkennung zu widmen. Sagt Terry. Seine Ode an Otis entstand in der Grundform 1993 an seinem ersten Mac, ohne Audiorecording und daher ohne Mundgeräusche und war damals als persönliches Beruhigungsgeräusch gedacht.

Town Talking
listen to this noise
The idea for this noise by Terry came in November in a discussion with his old buddy Axel about jazz and what jazz can be. Terry himself doesn’t know much about jazz at all. He’s rather playing with noises, allways the words by Keith Jarrett in mind, which are the guiding principle for our agency. So Terry is on his own continual discovery. Update November 2018: a new Mix by Terry.

Kölsche Psüschiater
listen to this noise
Terry scheint von der jecken Zeit angesteckt worden zu sein. Oder glaubt er, die seelische Gesundheit des Rheinländers in dessen Redseligkeit entdeckt zu haben? Zu Allem und Jedem zeitnah ein mehr oder weniger gehaltvoller Kommentar – und schon ist die erste Unruhe weg. Kann Reden und das Reden über das Gerede innere Heilkräfte aktivieren?

Ease Tension
listen to this noise
Another attempt by Terry to address inner unrest? He gave us this noise without any comment and this time without any voice. Maybe he talked to much in the other november-noise already… But we think it’s worth a listen!

Lasting Memories
listen to this noise
Terry gave us this noise as a talking point of brainwave, which probably knows each of us. All the sudden you have a feeling for a specific situation in your life. You hear, taste and smell what you did at that time. You see the same, feel the same, you’re even back right in the same spot you once were in. You’re re-living a small stretch of your live. This recall often lasts just a few seconds before the present wipes off the flash of insight. Curiously enough the noise comes in its origin from 1993s atary times and Terry remembers his memories.

Toothache Blues
listen to this noise
This 3 noises from Terry are some kind of contemporary documents. They have been made during the mid to late eighties with a 4track „Vestafire“ recorder...

Dont Allways Trust
listen to this noise
...and are some of the first noises Terry did. In general it was a funny time of trying out some other instruments than his 4string bass, playing with...

Freetime
listen to this noise
...unknown distortion and reverb-effects and extending the range of noisemaking from his blues based roots.

Tronsissioon
listen to this noise
A quick and dirty noise about the golf practise sessions Terrys alter ego takes part in a 2 weeks rhythm. It’s a group of four, five golfers with a french golf coach. He allways gives his best to tell what is the right way to swing a golfclub rather than just hit a ball with hands and arms. Update Jan 2018: Terry gave us a remixed version.

Nov 2015


Rock My Soul Again
listen to this noise
This Noise was basicaly done after a practice session with the gospel choir in which Terry sang in 2006. One of the ladies had an idea for a kind of introduction Noise before the official choir programm. In Terry’s small studio two ladies sang some phrases and terry put that together with some instruments. Now, after some years of aging, terry discovered the noise again, added some Logic-stock-voices and remixed the noise. Thanks to Yvonne and Franziska.

Sept 2015


The Mirror
listen to this noise
This Noise is a remake of an old 4Track-Noise that was done about 1988. At that time he had some issues feeling young and subtly began to look old. Maybe as any human has at his own period of life. He tried to pick up the noise in 1993 with the Atari and 2004 with the Mac and Logic 6 and both times he quit the job. Seems in 2015 he’s finaly old enough to reflect about this kind of transfiguration. Update 8/2018: Terry gave me a slightly different Version of „The Mirror“.

Jul 2015


Corkscrew Road
listen to this noise
Dieu merci Terry gave us new noises to present them here on this site. He still doesn’t talk that much about his feelings and his noises seems to be different to former ones. But at least he fiddles around, eats and sleeps. This noise one comes basically from 2009 but was not been finished. He looked at it and obviously it fits to his new noise plan. Give it a go!

Smiles
listen to this noise
This second noise goes even further back to 1993, when Terry made his explorations with his Atari. He listened a lot to the music of Miles Davis back then and was curious to find some characteristic phrases for this noise. Because it was an unaware attempt, he now replaced the former sample trumpet by a synth as he picked up the old file and screwed at notes and sound.

Jun 2015


Empty Rooms
listen to this noise
That noise by Terry was done at the new Studio after the removal in may. We don’t know what he wants to tell us with „Empty Rooms“ – he refuses to talk about that. We’ll look after him.

May 2015


Your Rhythm
listen to this noise
Unfortunately the alter ego of terry tries to play golf. He’s one of the untalented late-age-beginners and really thinks to become a better golfplayer while practising his golfswing. Not only the right move but also the right mindset and the perfect rhythm seems to be important for successful action.
Terry took time for a little noise to support his practise sessions. A common phrase, not complicated, at the same beat as he wants to make his golfswing. Listen to the noise by earphones should help him to stay in rhythm while „working“ on his swing.

In The Hole!
listen to this noise
Once arrived at the world of golf, Terry made some kind of noise collage from what seems to be the goal of the game. The perfect shot at a hole to play is allway the last put and the longer you play the game, the more you get frightened about that, Terry was told. Terry was horror-stricken. Why not thinking, you just started to play golf and this is your maiden put? Thanks to the enthusiastic voices of commentators and fans from different sources.

Febr 2015


The Man
listen to this noise
is Terry’s search for something beyond his lifetime, which is like a instrumental part in a Song. You’re doing your entry over a period of time and than others take over. The Man is his word for bunched feelings inside.

Marktplatz Drei29
listen to this noise
(Marketplace) entstand aus Terry’s Erinnerungen an die Kindheit. Damals spielten Verkäufer diverser Obst- und Gemüsestände virtuos auf der Klaviatur des charmanten, aber fest zum Verkauf entschlossenen Kundenkontakts. Für Kinder war der Marktbesuch an der Hand der Mutter nicht einfach. Denn Konzentration auf günstige Ware ließ sie in einen nervösen Zustand fallen, der sich, bei den Kolleginnen ebenfalls zu beobachten, zu einem nervenzerfetzenden Getümmel verdichtete. Eng, laut, und alle so groß. Da mußte man als Panz echt vorsichtig sein, schön alles mitmachen, ab und zu auch mal taktische Vorfreude auf die leckeren Kartoffeln zeigen. Update 8/2018: überarbeitete Version von Terry.

Paradise Jazzdance
is Terry’s first Noise-Video. It looks back into the 80ies with showtime for bassplayers and exhausting fast rhythms. Terry had a hard 4-week preparation with a personal fitness coach before taking the shots to perform all the art of dancing by himself!

Eastern Gold Voice 05
listen to this noise
is a noise that comes back from Terry's blues and session-times in the late 80ies and was one of the first non-blues noises Terry made. He played a rough sketch on his 4Track recorder at that time. Now picking up that old sketch in Logic, he named the noise like one of the voise-noises of the JamPack he used.

PurLAmur
listen to this noise
was a new exploration for Terry in the early 90ies Atary-times with the feeling (not with real knowing) of orchestral-like noises. Now he grabbed the old file and put it into Logic with the nowadays noise possibilities.

PurLAmur Guitarversion
(Live)
listen to this noise
The great Noslon Noslowitsch performed the noise live as a guitar-version at the "Phantom-Phastival" 2014. Thanks, Nossy, great stuff. Keep Love alive!


The Spy
listen to this noise
Being a spy seems to be a very popular job – and maybe we havn't noticed that during a long period of time. Must be thousands of them. It's no wonder, their life became much easier. No more tiptoe through dangerous nights, expecting vicious dogs or alarm systems, no need for big muscles or fighttrained specialsts when looking for things to snoop inside emails, manufacturing machines, traffic light systems or our home building technology. So much to nose out…

June 2014


Juna
listen to this noise
Let’s tell it in Terry’s words. „Juna is inspired by the birth of Juna Maria in november 2013. No, not my daughter, the parents are real creative designers. At the same time somewhere I'd read about picking up noises by alternately right and left ear could be positive for the developing proccess of a brain an has a relaxing influence. I took this to play with left-right effects in the stereopan. Hopefully it works for a young human like Juna - and for stressed parents".

Yours Tonite
listen to this noise
„was done in early 1989 as one of the last 4track-VestaFire-noises with Dr. Rhythm, my Ken Smith 4String Bass, some kind of electric piano with a children-size keyboard, a sax and an old Höfner Guitar", says Terry.
„The noise has its special history. About Christmastime 1988 I was on a trip to Scotland for having a drink at John O'Groats. I had my "Walkman" with me and sang some noise ideas into it while doing the boring drive up north. Somewhere in my drawers may still be the tape with the bass- and mouthlines.
A very special part is the sax. I hadn't had a sax in my hands at all before this noise. All I knew was, the best way to fit a sax in a noise was to do write in Bb. So I did, let the sax part open for overdub and asked a friend to lent me his sax…
Well, its not the most creatve sax solo you may have heard, but I blew my lungs off for this.
An interesting thing is, that I tried to cover the original noise in logic some months ago. But no way, just not possible for me. All the old charme and handwork character was gone. Better listen to the real old and imperfectly tape noise".

Wärm un schön
listen to this noise
„Wärm un schön" is another cologne-inspired noise by Terry. It describes the cold, snowy wintertime and warmth longing thoughts to the upcoming springtime. Terry sends his respekt to the work of Jupp Schmitz †, a cologne Songwriter, by picking up the theme of winter and spring in his noise as Jupp Schmitz did it a long time ago in one of his famous songs.
