About Me

Mr. Audio Boy is a German-based experimental project, which creates music by the process of conducting jam sessions, improvising during these sessions, recording them, and then using best parts from those sessions to generate so called "Jam session sections"; these are generally raw sound clips that are mostly left unprocessed apart from using a simple cross-fade in order to tie two or more clips together. Only very rarely some simple effects like filters, compressors or automated mastering are applied. The sound clips then are uploaded to Soundcloud and are usually free for download.

In doing so, the special one-of-a-kind moment is pursued; thus, the created sound is highly inimitable and unreproducible.
