Some interesting things I found on August 25th, 2008:
# product placements (2008) – 70,200 samples in 33 seconds: nightmare for GERMAN RIAA
If you want to register a song at GEMA (RIAA, ASCAP of Germany) you have to fill in a form for each sample you use, even the tiniest bit. On 12 Sept 08, German Avantgarde musician Johannes Kreidler will —as a live performance event—register a short musical work that contains 70,200 quotations with GEMA using 70,200 forms.
# Audio Cookbook – AudioCookbook.org is a non-profit resource for music and sound enthusiasts made possible by contributions from Unearthed Music. The content has a slant toward the avant-garde or experimental side of audio production. Whether you have years of technical experience or you are just getting your feet wet doing sound design, you’ll find unique, interesting and useful information that might inspire you, give you an idea, or simply entertain.
# “Bird Box” sequencer – LFSR (linear feedback shift register) for drum sequencing. “Bird Box” is loosely based on the Triadex Muse architecture, but stripped down to two feedback taps and one variable-modulus divider.
# Music Is Math (Finished HD version) – Glenn Marshall's HD and finished version of his video ‘Music Is Math’.
I just let the program run till the end of the music, I felt reluctant to interfere too much by trying to sculpt an ending, and just let the code run its own natural course.
# Phil Durrant on Reaktor and the Laptop as Improvisational Instrument
Peter Dines talks Reaktor with Phil Durrant.
Phil Durrant is familiar to most Reaktor users as Sowari on the NI messageboards, a helpful and knowledgeable presence there. He’s also a renowned experimental musician, having performed with, among others, Ticklish, Trio Sowari and MIMEO, the music in movement orchestra – a collective that includes Christian Fennesz, Peter Rehberg and Keith Rowe.
# JamStudio – Create Music Beats – The online music factory – Jam, remix, chords, loops.
# Apocatastasis (feedback return for cheap digital delays) – Most expensive analog delay pedals have a feedback knob that lets you drive the output of the delay effect back into the input. My Ibanez DL5 Digital Delay did not have this feature, so I decided to make one and make it cheap. :-)
# DMGMITE-01: The Australian Chipmusic Compilation – A collection of tracks from some of the chippest blokes from Down Under.
# AudioWeevil08 – After many months of refinement, I can finally announce the new AudioWeevil08! This version really raises the bar in terms of response, feel and design.
