Miscellaneous notes towards my 2015 Asialink residency in the Sundanese lands of West Java.

1 Lotekno

The biggest project. See the Lotekno website.

2 Hitek Lotek

This project has been spun down and replaced by a newer shinier one. I have a bunch of sundry songs and remixes made in collaboration with various locals (details of whom below).

3 Working with crazy tunings

A software project for live electronic jamming that doesn’t assume western tuning. See Pattern Machine.
