# Beastie Boys | Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Free stream of Beastie Boys’ latest!

Good people, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the "clean" version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 has leaked. So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life!

Thank you, The Management

# Remixing Times Square, with Mobile Field Recordings

Peter Kirn writes:

The armies of the earbuds are everywhere, as people – since the dawning of the Walkman – tune out their surroundings. What if, instead, your surroundings became soundtracks? That’s the question posed by a mobile app research project, partnering between New York’s Times Square and a creative team at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

UrbanRemix invites users to capture geo-tagged sounds with a free iOS and Android app, then to string them together into sound compositions on the Web


Tim Prebble introduces a new sample library:

This poor old piano was beyond saving and so it became destined for recycling as a sound design library. Its found a new life at:

# illucia

From paper kettle:

Codebending is the exploration of software with “patch points.” Patch points expose the inner workings of computer programs, and allow for atypical connections between things like games, music making software, office suites, etc.

# [VIDEO] The Wilhelm Scream – Cinexcellence – The Wilhelm Scream

Every movie blogger is obligated to devote a post to The Wilhelm Scream AT LEAST once in their lives. And they’re all pretty much the same: A quote from wikipedia, the compilation video on YouTube, and the latest movie they found it in. This post is a little different. Starting last year I started collecting Wilhelm Screams, planning on making a video showing some favorites. That project spiraled out of control, and the result is a (pretty) complete collection.

# Max Mathews, Father of Digital Synthesis, Computer Innovator, Dies at 84

Peter Kirn writes:

Max Mathews is best known for his involvement in the debut of digital synthesis, but he contributed much more. His Radio Baton predicted gestural controllers that arrived much later from Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, and it may be his code design ideas that outlast even the memory of the computer’s first musical utterances.

# Green Label Sound » Take a Tour of the Classixx Studio

# Slewpi – The Painterly Music Synthesizer for iOS via Oliver Chesler

Slewpi is a new type of app that lets you create music and synthesized sound and animation by painting on the screen with your fingers.

Slewpi is super easy to use, just paint with your fingers and choose different colors and brushes to change the strokes and sounds. Slewpi records what you do and plays it back in a loop.

Choose different brushes to change the visual style as well as the sound of your strokes in real-time. The different brushes correspond to different synthesizer waveform and vibrato settings allowing you to create new and diverse audio/visual compositions.

# Melodies Found in Barcodes, Then Shared, via iPhone

Peter at CDM:

Strings of numbers are everywhere in our world, tucked just outside our awareness alongside identifiers like bar codes. Dutch media artist and inventor Leo van der Veen simply plucks that information and brings it to the fore.

# Coagula MIDI Ribbon Controller 2.0

Giuseppe Di Cillo writes:

A few months ago I published a post on how to make a MIDI Ribbon Controller with Arduino. In the meantime I had a few ideas to improve both hardware and software and also felt the need to change many parameters without having to reprogram every time Arduino. Finally I placed the controller in a case, thanks to Laura who built it. So this is version 2.0 of my MIDI Ribbon Controller, which finally becomes a much more practical tool.

Leo van der Veen has released c74, an iPhone / iPod Touch app that let’s you connect your device with Cycling ’74′s Max/MSP 5.

Custom interfaces are built straight from within Max, presets can be stored etc. The external features some nice attributes for receiving accelerometer, GPS, compass, shake gesture and proximity data.

Communication between the apps does not rely on OpenSoundControl but in stead uses a straight forward communication socket, which offers a reliable connection.

c74 is available to purchase from the iTunes App Store, priced at $3.99 USD.
