A Bit More on my Situation - 18 October 2016I 


have known since March that my cancer is terminal.


Although I don't have a formal prognosis it seems best to assume a 3-4 month lifespan.


Jeff's 70th Birthday concert remains a target  for 5 months, on 8th March 2017.

Assuming my situation doesn't  change, then the concert will have to be in my room at 191 Albert Road : need to talk to the neighbours!


My brain tumour is a GBM GRADE 4.  . Even with chemotherapy it will continue to cause problems with my moobility, strength and coordination, however IT WILL NOT SPREAD TO ANYWHERE ELSE IN MY BODY. That's just the nature of tumours that start in the brain.

New Videos on YouTube

November 20, 2012
After a gap of more than a year I'm back, with some new ideas for live video during performances.  To give an idea what you will see I've uploaded 3 videos to YouTube.  The videos are from a series of 16 DVDs I produced a couple of years ago called "8 Days", a 'normal' and 'lite' realisation for each day, including the 8th day! All have 5.1 surround sound, but the YouTube examples are stereo.  Enjoy!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSQhFsLUP_E

About Me


Jeff Cloke I have been involved with experimental music since the 1960s, and since 2002 I have been fascinated by the sound of the space itself, as well as the sounds made in the space; an activity inspired by the composer Alvin Lucier. My first Resonation projects involved a microphone and delays, allowing sounds to be replayed into the space repeatedly so that they gradually reinforce themselves, creating an harmonic interaction with the space. Projects have been both solo and making work with other artists; using filters and effects pedals, sounds are combined dynamically within the context of constantly evolving harmonies and rhythms, creating a unique, shifting soundscape derived from both the instruments and the space. Between 2005 and 2008 I worked to develop a laptop setup using the same Resonation principles, but allowing faster responses and the ability to perform live sampling and processing of other musicians and the sounds in the room. The new laptop process, Reson8, is also able to utilise multiple speaker setups in order to produce surround sound with moving sound objects. For solo pieces Reson8 uses stored recordings of the human voice (spoken words) which are transformed to reveal their inner beautiful, shifting, harmonic soundscapes. Recent projects have included solo and ensemble performances in Berlin, Potsdam and London, as well as performances with dancers, performance artists and musicians. A new venture is the production of surround-sound DVDs with Reson8 sounds moving in space, with accompanying visual images.
