Pierogi (also perogi, perogy, pirohi, piroghi, pirogi, pirogen, piroshke, pyrohy or pirogues)

Have spent the last two days processing mp3 soundtracks onto the computer. Thanks to Mr Sony there is no way of digitally transferring so everything has to be done analogue in realtime. The reason why I have been delaying it was hoping that there was a solution. On the whole not a lot of good quality sound to work with. Have to rework my ideas a bit. At least I can take advantage of the voiceover booth. I was fortunate to meet with sound workstudy Monica Gil to see if we can finally process the geophone sounds into something useful. An interesting experiment in trying to get my hard driver recognised by a PC and then working in the voiceover studio with a Mac but not being familiar with the setup so Protools not fully functional. A learning exercise.

Also emailed Kevin Hall from UC over whether the output from the seismic program can be wound down a bit so that it is not so distorted. Signal seems to go from 0 to 100% all the time with no sound level in between. Its still chaotic noise but might be more meaningful if its not cut off???? Way in over my depth here!

Now pierogis are something I know nothing about having not eaten Ukrainian or Russian food. Rolled the beautiful dough and cut out round shapes. The filling this time was potato and cheese and sauerkraut and onions. The latter was amazing. Also various Hungarian, Balkan and Greek delights. A real highlight to enjoy with good friends.
