James Blake @ 3VOOR12

Some interesting things I found recently:

James Blake: James Blake

Stream of James Blake's new album is available from the Dutch 3VOOR12 website.

British dubstep-pop up-and-comer James Blake’s self-titled debut album is out digitally next Tuesday, February 8, via Universal Republic in the U.S. (it’ll drop a day before in the UK via Atlas/A&M). Right now, the whole album is streaming over at 3VOOR12; you can head here to take a listen.

Furthermore, Listen Before You Buy points out that a bonus track from the LP, the haunting, sparse “Tep and the Logic”, is making the rounds.

Improved Reaktor voice panning and a little digital archaeology

Peter Dines:

I was reading through the Reaktor application manual which is greatly improved in recent times, and came across this structure to pan voices in the stereo field

din: create sound with Bezier curves in free instrument for Linux

Make music with just your mouse and keyboard. 143 drones are created in the video below.

Peter Kirn writes:

“din is noise” is a newly-updated “tone board,” making the rectangular plane of its screen into a field of sound you can transform. The video above just begins to show some of what it can do. Pixels can be tones, transformed onscreen. A resonator editor uses Bezier curves to edit sounds across octaves. Each resonator, in turn, can be edited with yet more Bezier curves. Put them together into the drone editor (the bit you see in the video), and you can create vast, sculpted soundscapes from series of rectangles dragged around between octaves.

It’s all free, and it’s all doable for your mouse – a Linux exclusive that might convince you to dual boot, or take a second look at that netbook.

Music for Our Future: Free 13-track compilation inspired by SyFy’s Caprica

Music for Our Future

Music for Our Future is a special compilation inspired by the SyFy original series, Caprica.

Peter Kirn writes:

Working with music production today is a bit like science fiction. It’s fitting that visions of technology’s promise, menace, and humanity would inspire electronic music.

Create Digital Music, XLR8R, and Pitchfork got to join together with TV network SyFy to curate a free, 13-track compilation of “Music for Our Future.” Inspired by the world of SyFy’s new TV series Caprica, which is set just before the recently-concluded Battlestar Galactica, this is science fiction as the familiar. It’s the near future, not simply fantasy.

The full compilation is available to download for free, exclusively at: http://www.xlr8r.com/musicforourfuture

The compilation includes tracks by Lusine, Willits & Sakamoto, The Field, Richard Devine, and more. Also features some exclusive material by White Rainbows, Nice Nice, and CDM’s Peter Kirn, who also talks to some of the artists to find out what inspired them and which techniques were used for these tracks.
