Thirteen Months of Audiobus

Posted on by Michael

Tomorrow, Monday December 10, my friend and partner-in-crime Sebastian Dittmann and I are launching a project over twelve months in the making: Audiobus. We’re very proud of what we’ve managed to do, and we both firmly believe that Audiobus is going to fundamentally alter the way people create music on the iPad and iPhone. You can find out more about … Continue reading

Leaving Alet

I know. We’ve been conspicuously silent. So silent, in fact, that a few kind souls have actually written to us to make sure we’re still, you know, alive (thank you, souls!). We have good reason though – we’ve been having a truly splendid creative time working on projects. Katherine’s been busily creating a set of paintings for her Etsy-store-to-be, and … Continue reading

A month in Istres (Don’t think of Tunisia, don’t think of Tunisia)

After our month-and-a-bit-long journey from central France to southern France, with a minor detour via Copenhagen, we’re ready to be static for a while. I’ve spent many long hours trawling through databases of French campsites, trying to find one in Provence that’s (a) not obscenely expensive, and (b) open. There aren’t very many that fall under those categories at this … Continue reading

A Month in Champagne (Less Alcoholic Than It Sounds)

Posted on by Michael

We leave the farm and drive southwards towards our fallback site in Champagne-Ardenne, somewhere we can stay for a few weeks, figure out an itinerary and get some work done. We arrive at the camp site in Neuville-Day and meet the owner, who shows us in. I wander around the site, laptop in one hand and wireless antenna in the … Continue reading

Launching Loopy

A few weeks ago — while we were driving to York, as a matter of fact — we launched our latest product, Loopy 2, after about six months’ development. It’s a music creation and performance app, that loops layers of recorded or imported audio. Suffice to say, the days without a laptop were hard, while I was itching to find … Continue reading

Recovering

We spend the next four days recovering from our long trudge. I’ve never been this sunburnt in my life. I didn’t even know you could get sunburnt in the UK. I would dearly love to have a shower after our hot, sweaty hike but the best I can manage is a sponge bath a couple of days later. When I … Continue reading

Cornwall

Posted on by Katherine

I was making plans with a friend who’s coming over to Europe recently and told her of our plans to be in the Alps this autumn and that she should join us. I cautiously added that our plans have a tendency to change without notice and beyond all recognition, usually within a couple of weeks of having made them. Sure … Continue reading

Chillin in San Lazzaro

Posted on by Michael

We’ve had a very quiet week or so, hanging around in our pretty little caravan park in San Lazzaro, working on projects, getting over a mysterious bout of food poisoning — just Katherine, oddly, not me. During a phone call to my mother (our knowledgeable consultant on all things), she revealed that apparently I have had an iron stomach since … Continue reading

Contursi Terme

Posted on by Michael

We awoke in our dodgy car park in Salerno, walked along the foreshore and visited the same café as yesterday for breakfast — no healthier this time, I’m afraid; it was ricotta-filled pastries and chocolate croissants. Tasty goodness. All fuelled up (Katherine: …and feeling a little queasy), we headed out to attempt a few items on our to-do list, then … Continue reading

Down-time in Hammamet

Posted on by Michael

We arrived at Camping Samaris near Hammamet with the intention of staying put for a few weeks, and having some time off travel. We got so caught up in projects during that time though, that a few weeks turned into two months. I finished off a project, Talkie, and got it on the market, as well as working on some … Continue reading

Sicily: San Vito Lo Capo, Zingaro National Park, Erice, Selinunte

Posted on by Michael

We had just left Scopello after a very enjoyable week spent developing software and painting: We wanted more! But it was also time for a change of scene, so we drove on towards San Vito Lo Capo, another town that sounded quite promising. A short and picturesque drive inland through pretty, rocky mountains, through a rather sad-looking town amusingly called … Continue reading
