The Story of ORCH5 | Robert Fink -
This is fantastic, and a sound I've obsessed about the history of before: Fairlight Orchestral Stab 5, aka ORCH5. A paper that traces its history.

algorithmic-music-exploration/amen: A toolbox for algorithmic remixing, after Echo Nest Remix
"A toolbox for algorithmic remixing, after Echo Nest Remix." Oh, hello. And, wonderful as remix was, the fact this is _local_ feels exciting.

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.

ishback» Blog Archive » Creating music samples with vinyl records
"Driven by my devotion for vinyls and analog processes (perhaps a bit of Dj wannabe too), and emulating the audio tape cut&paste technique, I tried to make the vinyl sampling a bit more analog – literally cut and paste pieces of vinyl to create samples." Cut & Paste with physical vinyl; bonus points for excellent Delia Derbyshire video.

Total Deconstruction: Buffalo Stance « liner notes
"What fascinates me about this evolution is not just the multiple levels of cut-and-paste that went on through these productions, but the fact that this exposes a clear example of the sort of rewriting/rethinking that sometimes must happen before a song hits its apex.  Cherry’s rap on the b-side of ‘Looking Good Diving’ isn’t the fully realized version of the lyrics she went with on ‘Buffalo Stance,’ and neither is her confidence in place, yet, vocally." Marvellous, fascinating deconstruction of the mighty "Buffalo Stance"

Pitchfork: Poptimist #21
"We write and listen and play music in a cultural environment in which there's intense excitement and anxiety around the idea of music as a social object, not just a commercial one... in order to understand better the ways in which songs are becoming lines in listeners' conversations, we need different ways of thinking about how they've played that role for musicians too." Tom Ewing on music as fanfiction.
