A Walk with Bongi through Alex.

A Walk with Bongi through Alex. began nearly 800 kilometers south of the township with Bongi Dhlomo-Mautloa’s installation in progress at the Grahamstown Festival 2000. The idea emerged of not only showing the visual riches of the township but also documenting a day in its aural life. ⇒

Hi, I’m Rudiger Meyer, a composer interested in the play between traditional concert music and new media. This site, my home on the web, is part documentation, part platform, and part experimental playground. It is also a place for writing – from notes & tweets to more extensive articles.

Modular Diary

A background project that I’ve been busy with during the course of the last few months has been making recordings of the demo patches that I’d put together for my series of Audulus Hordijk Modules. After adding those to the respective posts on my site it occurred to me that it might be fun to record the texts and combine them with the examples, creating audio versions of the posts that could then be made available via a podcast feed.

As is often the case, it took a little longer than anticipated to get everything in place, but it’s finally done – hopefully useful as a little review of the project.

Here’s the link should you be interested in listening to them in a podcast player: https://huffduffer.com/rudigermeyer/tags/modular-diary/rss, or check it out on HuffDuffer where there are also links to open the feed directly in various podcast apps (should you be on a mobile device of some kind): https://huffduffer.com/rudigermeyer/tags/modular-diary.

It’s also possible to follow through all the entries on my site, which also includes the individual audio examples, starting here: https://rudigermeyer.com/notes/2018-03-24-17-12-30

First experiments in creating versions of concert pieces specially for the web. I’ve collected some of my thoughts on this in a few blog posts.
