Binaural Planets - My first ever album with 180 minutes of binaural drones placed on frequencys derived from the orbital time of our Planets around the Sun. You can stream tracks Mercury and Neptune here. You get tracks of other planets and Pluto as a bonus track when you buy the full album. All these tracks were made entirely with DIN Is Noise 21 except fade outs which were added with Audacity.
Binaural Major Chords - My second album with 240 minutes of binaural drones placed on the major chords of all notes of the chromatic scale. You can stream C# major and F# major tracks here. The remaining tracks are available when you buy the full album. All these tracks were made entirely with DIN Is Noise 21 except fade outs which were added with Audacity.
The following 4 binaural tracks led to the production of the above 2 albums
Ich-Bin-Pluto - Binaural drones placed (whilst in Berlin) at the orbital period of Pluto shifted up 39 octaves. Separation between L and R is 1.6180 Hz which is the golden ratio. Listen on headphones for binaural effect!
Saturn - Binaural drones placed at the orbital period of Saturn shifted up 37 octaves (147.890 Hz). Separation between L and R is 1 Hz. Listen on headphones for binaural effect!
Earth - Binaural drones placed at frequency (194.18 Hz) of an Earth day shifted up 24 octaves. Separation between L and R is 1 Hz. Listen on headphones for binaural effect!
Sun - Binaural drones placed at frequency of the rotation of the Sun shifted up 28 octaves. Separation between L and R is 1 Hz. Listen on headphones for binaural effect!
Louigi Verona is one of the first musicians to use DIN Is Noise. He recorded this whole album LIVE from DIN with a really early version of DIN on GNU/Linux.
Celloloidal - From the 1st jam with Cellist Jakub Gucik / Krakow / Poland.
Mayday - From the 1st jam with flautist Leszek Wisniowski / Krakow / Poland
Ulica Retoryka - From the 1st jam with Kamil Kukla at his flat in Ulica Retoryka / Krakow / Poland. Bass E and G were triggered in Mondrian and modulated by fifths or fourths at high BPM. Spiral waveforms used. Kamil effects his guitar to make horn-like sounds.
All sounds are live from DIN in the following tracks
Sinucidal - Ball tick tocks between F and the F above in Mondrian, then we live raise and lower harmonics on the Sine Mixer but transform the result into a shapeform [ x = a*cos(wt), y = b*sin(wt) ] instead of outputting summed sines. Mouse capture was applied on Feedback and Volume curves on delay lines and mixed out with in-DIN .WAV save.
Beat Vomeat - Beat with modulations up and down fifths, feedback/volume curves on delay line messing and waveform mixing
Morse code Manra - Morse code for SOS converted into an envelope and applied to lead voice on Microtonal-Keyboard. Long, overdriven delay lines
Bombay Mix - Demonstrates Spiral shapeforms, smooth waveform and envelope switching & mixing
Sumbo Siva Sumbo - Demonstrates smooth octave shifting thru microtonal space and live phrasing on the Microtonal-keyboard
Methane lakes of Titan - Drones launched from a modulating drone at a lower octave then driven to higher octaves by user defined gravity. Recorded Live using in-DIN .WAV recording. A video recording is also available
The screenshots page has sound samples of bezier curve waveforms, shapeforms and fractal waveforms.
I started recording an Oral History of DIN Is Noise on Christmas Eve 2014 and finished by Boxing Day. Its in 6 parts, just over 3 hours long :)

Audio interview (39:32) conducted by Stress FM at Caldas da Rainha, Portugal where Jag demonstrates DIN Is Noise and talks about software as art, computer programming as writing, India, computing form factors, privacy & bots >>
din + mandolin by S Jagannathan & U Shrinivas Added Feb 14, 2012 / Created March 27, 2009 Jag has a fine record of Mandolin virtuoso U Shrinivas playing this raga (scale?) with the late Ustad Sultan Khan on the Sarangi. Used din to match their Sa (tonic / key note) and played a few phrases with the mouse on din. Replaced the Sarangi phrases with din and edited in the Mandolin
noisedive by S Jagannathan & Martin Klang Added Feb 8, 2012 / Performed December 3, 2009 First performance with Martin Klang as part of Openlab open night at The Roebuck. Jag plays din tuned on Raga Malkauns with notes slowly modulated down in pitch to create rumble and whale like sounds. Martin uses his own open hardware music controllers to control Ableton Live and his own software drone synth.
DIN Is Noise is used extensively in Louigi Verona's droning project.
Voltage by Louigi Verona is a whole album made only with din.
trainby Louigi Verona - February 14, 2011
Riding on a train. Recorded in Ardour. Heavy external effects applied to din resonator.
grass is greenby Louigi Verona - February 12, 2011
A tune about lying on the grass and watching the blue sky. Very simplistic, even banal theme, however I like how the tune nevertheless creates an atmosphere which I think many people can relate to.
dimension twoby Louigi Verona - February 10, 2011
this was recorded using two dins. each din was routed through its own rakarrack. hydrogen was also routed thru a separate rakarrack. the result was mixed in qtractor. voices are from star trek tng and a cosmology lecture. except from voices and drums the rest of the sounds all come from the two dins.
Underwaterby Louigi Verona - February 8, 2011
This is where it gets really complicated to play. Made many-many takes until got this one right.
