    Hi Jean-
    My name is Zak Belica, and I’m an audio director over at Epic Games. I found your blog through a link, and I really liked the work you’re doing on the Kyma. I’ve actually been doing similar (but more primitive in technique) granular manipulation in Absynth and various other tools. I’ve always been interested in the Kyma system, but haven’t had the time/resources to pour into learning it. It seems you have an excellent working knowledge of how to get good results out of it. Anyway, I’m working on a project right now that’s in the prototype phase, but could use a lot of the kinds of sounds you’ve been working on for your demos. I’d like to chat more about it sometime. Are you in Vancouver BC now?

  3. Hey Jean! hope your well. Mad props on your blog, very clean and very insightful. Ive been really interested in building a contact mic to get new textures that you dont come across often. Then i stumbled on your guitar pick up set up, Im fascinated. Anyway we can talk about the soldering and connections of the XLR to the pick up? Thanks in advance, keep killin it!

    Hello Jean-Edouard.

    This is Enric, from Barcelona, Spain. I’ve been following you since quite time now. And basically what most impress me is your imagination when looking for new sounds. Breaking boundaries is may be the most dificult and inspiring in our job as a technicians. My congratulations.
    I don’t know if you want to share it, but I am interested in knowing what you are spinning tied in a rope, capable of producing that sound. No matter what I try, I don’t get any sound similar to that, not even bossting it later on Pro tools.
    Anyway…. My congratulations again.

  5. Hi Enric, try searching for bullroarers, it’s just a spinning plate originally used for communication over long distance. You probably remember that famous scene from Crocodile Dundee at 1.20min: The one on my video was just a thin ruler attached to an elastic band.

    Thank’s Jean-Edouard.

    I just stop by at your blog and saw your answer. Thanks for reply at my question.

    As a matter of fact, I didn’t watch that film that you mention, not even knew about that system of communication.

    Thank you. I’ll have some fun with it.

    Hi Jean-Edouard,

    I have a request to you.Can you please send me the Kyma Sound File for the Transformers FX Sound? I tried to create the sound myself in my Kyma system, which I did not succeed.
    Than you so much!

    Best Regards
