Puremagnetik is the project of sound programmer Micah Frank. It is purposed since 2006 as a creative sound design outlet, releasing “packs” inspired by all types of ongoing recording work.

Micah Frank is an award winning music and sound programmer. He studied Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School, afterwards spending many years as a professional composer and sound designer. His sound projects include programming for major synthesizer manufacturers, interactive sonification installations and more.

Residing in Berlin, Germany, Micah is the lead developer/owner at Puremagnetik and the Sound Packs Manager at Ableton AG.

In 2014, Micah started work on a cool new sound ecology project at acousticecologies.com which is a Tumblr Page allowing you to follow along on his adventures.

Acoustic Ecologies is an ongoing side project through which Micah hopes to bring the spaciousness of the outside world into the confines of the modern music production experience.

I love the idea of documenting field recording adventures in this way -  very inspiring. Perhaps if I’ll document my field recordings this way someday.

Here is a link to his soundcloud page https://soundcloud.com/micahfrank. Here is a sampling of some of his recordings.

If you are doing this sort of thing, leave a link in the comments to your site so we can all check out your adventures.
