Salinity Sequencer Sampler | owlproject.com
"The SSS-12 is probably the best hardwood sequencer to ever be put on water. An incredible machine, It stores and plays the last 12 hours of river samples. Custom circuits convert the saltiness of each sample into pitch, the more salt the higher the pitch, giving a sonic impression of the tidal cycle. With its wooden conveyor belt the SSS-12 automatically updates every hour so you always get to hear the last 12 hours of tidal activity."

Wonderful.

Grace notes - Bobulate
"Learning to play music is an long exercise learning to to be kind to yourself. As your fingers stumble to keep up with your eyes and ears, your brain will say unkind things to the rest of you. And when this tangle of body and mind finally makes sense of a measure or a melody, there is peace. Or, more accurately, harmony. And like the parents who so energetically both fill a house with music and seek its quietude, both are needed to make things work. As with music, it takes a lifetime of practice to be kind to yourself. Make space for that practice, and the harmony will emerge."

Yes.

Rancho Electro - "Salt Fires" - Graph Rabbit & Mikael Jorgensen - Music Video HD - YouTube
"Rancho Electro is a series where a guest artist is invited to Ojai, California to collaborate on a new musical composition with Mikael Jorgensen. Utilizing traditional and electronic instruments, each group heads into the mountains above Ojai to film and record the performance of this new composition." I loved this first piece from Graph Rabbit. So nice to see interesting, melodic, electronic music performed live.

NYMPHAEA - Svetlana Maraš
"Nymphaea is one in a set of 7 works made under the title Ethereal Information. These works are Pure data patches, and they are generative sound works functioning by the rules of partially fixed algorithms. Each of the patches leaves the space for user’s input that will influence certain aspects of the work. Patches can be used under the Creative Commons Attribution license, as part of other works, in installations, galleries, public spaces or wherever you find them suitable."

Music as software. I'm listening to it now; not as an MP3, but as a PureData patch. Very good.

SCHOOL of NOISE | Experimental sound workshops for children and young people
"The School of Noise runs workshops for young people and adults encouraging the exploration of noise, sound and music. Our aim is to provide creative and imaginative activities using sound in accessible, fun and educational ways.

Using a wide variety of analogue and digital equipment our activities include; sculpting sounds using small modular synthesisers, composing original experimental sound art, circuit bending, field recording, coding and programming, building cardboard record players, conducting orchestras of fruit and vegetables, creating and recording Foley sounds, preparing pianos, soundwalks, learning about acoustic ecology plus more."

Brilliant.

Every* Recording of Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie 1″ Played at the Same Time
Merged together in the way that makes most coherent sense: using the start/end of the longest track as the markers to stretch the others to; turning rubato in performance into what sounds like granular synthesis, almost. Good write-up, too: the more I listen to this, the more thoughtful it gets.

A really beautiful live modular set from Scanner/Robin Rimbaud. I love this because it's melodic and musical, delivered from a small but carefully chosen 6U rig; it is the exact thing I like in ambient music, and the exact opposite of so much modular nonsense in the world. It's beautiful to study, too.

Thankful Villages | A project about rural life by Darren Hayman
"A Thankful Village is a village where every soldier returned alive from World War 1. The term Thankful or Blessed Village was coined by Arthur Mee in his set of guidebooks, The King's England in the 1930s. Darren Hayman is visiting each of the 54 Thankful Villages and making a piece of music and a short film for every one focussing on village life. Some take the form of instrumentals inspired by location, some are interviews with village residents set to music, others are new songs with lyrics or found local traditional songs." Lovely project from Darren Hayman.

"Little Uniquenesses Add Up": Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm - BR
"We are defining a story, and this will be the context for the music, and music will always be about that context. If the story of my music was like, “Yeah, I download illegal software and I make a hundred tracks and ten are good, and I’ll always do it while I’m on the train or the bus, and I have headphones on and I just make music all the time,” it would raise a question: ‘What is inspiring you?’" This leapt out at me and smacked me around the chops a bit. Smashing interview with Nils Frahm about his recent collaboration with Ólafur Arnalds. (Also, I did not realise how the Korg PS-3100 did polyphony. Blimey.)

Rich "Disasterpeace" Vreeland talks through some of the Fez soundtrack, but really, he's giving a quite nice lesson in Massive, which is a synthesizer I'd sort of wrapped my head around but now am a lot happier with. It's been especially good since I've been messing around with a real (but simpler) analog synth, and that's been coaching me on sound design, too.

"With this project, I ask: In the record listening experience, how important is the still environment and kinetic spectacle?

rhythm of the tide. - As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments,...
"We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills." It's all there, already, in his head; and god, he hits those notes so well. No auto-tune there.

Why I Hate The 'Goldberg Variations' : Deceptive Cadence : NPR
"Bach wonders: yes, this is hellaciously monotonous, but what if I multiply these eight notes by four, 8 x 8 x 8 x 8, making 32 total, creating a larger symmetry, giving the harmony some space to breathe? And then what if I write some real canons, not this pathetic excuse? I know everyone discusses the Goldbergs as if born from the mind of God in some beautiful Olympian harmony-paradise. But here's another way to frame it: Bach set out to write something less boring than one of the most boring pieces ever written. And he succeeded. If the Handel Variations are Last Year at Marienbad, the Goldbergs are Die Hard." Spoiler: Jeremy Denk doesn't really hate the Goldberg Variations. But boy, can he both write - and play the piano.

Musical vandalism, or more simply, The Clap. | Colin Currie's Blog
"I’m not asking for the world here. I really don’t think I am. I would merely like to suggest some manners, no different to those used by anyone out there who wouldn’t walk in front of someone engaged with a painting in an art gallery, or emit a loud noise during the crucial speech in a play. Music needs a certain environment and respect to have full effect. And no – that is not, not, elitist." I, too, could have punched the man - it was clearly a man - who, in what seemed like an attempt to show off about just how much he enjoyed the performance, was early to the gun. Why not let it breathe? Why not let it sit? Currie's description of applause as a train you get led onto is particularly good, as is his point about how applause-whenever can have its place. But there were only two people who should have been making Contacts with things at that point of the concert, and they were both on stage.
