Le Cybersongosse

Each week Tom Whitwell of Music Thing highlights the best of the new music gear that's coming out, as well as noteworthy vintage equipment:

Music lessons at my old school consisted of a few shakers, a piano, and an old guy talking about Mozart. In France, things are very different. This awesome-looking psychedelic synth is the reason why there are so many cool French electronic musicians. It's the latest version of Le Cybersongosse, a series of synths developed at the Institut International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges. They've been used to teach French kids about recording technology and synthesis since 1973. This one is a hardware control surface connected to a G5 running MAX/MSP, the musical programming language developed in Paris at the IRCAM research institute, and now used by techno musicians like Aphex Twin. For basic lessons, kids use just the controller with a microphone. More advanced lessons are taught with a touch tablet and a monitor. When I first mentioned the Cybersongosse on Music Thing, the response was immediate and unanimous: "Never mind the French kids, where can I buy…


Magnificent Desolation

Posted by Cloudwalk on July 21, 2014 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Guess I'm a day late, but Sunday was the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

I'd like to commemorate that with a recent track project, called "Magnificent Desolation."  The title is a phrase that astronaut Buzz Aldrin used to describe the surface of the moon.  

This track will be a part of my next album project, titled, "Moonshot," which will be a tribute to the Apollo era of space exploration.  This album will have a lot of romanticism to it, but this is a subject that reflects a lot of emotion and drama contained with the ambient feel of space.  I already have several tracks ready for it, as varying projects, recorded over the last few years.  The end result will be very eclectic with deep ambient, more retro-sounding space music, Berlin school sounds, ambient guitar, and maybe even some techno beats, all to tell the story of one of our greatest human adventures.

Christian Marclay's massively popular artwork "The Clock" is comprised of thousands of preexisting film clips strung together into a 24-hour minute-by-minute cycle. It's been widely celebrated, attended by crowds around the globe. Critical praise has been heaped upon it: The New York Times hailed the piece as the ultimate work of appropriation art, and it dovetails with memes like supercuts("fast-paced montages of short video clips that obsessively isolate a…

Poetry of Architecture

Posted by Ivan Black on July 20, 2014 at 4:37am 2 Comments

I am happy to inform people of the release of my new album 

Poetry of Architecture

Anyone attending the Ambient Music Conference may recognize some of the sounds here form my performance there.

the album takes its influence form something i read about form and ambience being an important part of and architects work.

Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements. Architecture has to do with planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambience to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow. Often, conflicting requirements must be resolved. The practise of Architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration. Documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, defines the structure and/or behaviour of a building or other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed. The word "architecture" has also been adopted to describe other designed systems, especially in information technology.

Hope you like it

The truth is i've been silent for sometime but here is an update:

Ι spend a lot of time working on the upcoming No-xygen album. We have already
completed half of the album and we are moving on. Listening to the finished material
is way different from our previous releases...i could describe it deep,melancholic and it
approaches the soundtrack music field. It is very demanding and we hope to complete it
during this year. When is done we will reveal the album title,full track listing, album artwork and some additional surprises!!!

Stay tuned!!!!

New Release: Drone.Excursion004 aka 'harmonic convergence'

Posted by Scott Lawlor on July 19, 2014 at 2:27pm 0 Comments



I'd like to announce the newest release in my drone excursion series and to thank Thomas of Weareallghosts for continuing to release this series.  Here are the notes about the album followed by the download link.


Thanks for listening.

Scott Lawlor continues on his journey into post-sixty minute soundscapes with the fourth in his drone.excursion series.


 drone.excursion.004 (waag_dex004) aka 'harmonic convergence' is a delightful drone that builds in significance in the listener's consciousness. There is a slow evolution in the chords used over the 72 minute duration that together feeds the mind and provides space for contemplation and flow.


 drone.excursion.004 (waag_dex004) is another enjoyable longform drone from Scott and I really do hope you will enjoy it as much as I have ... I found it a worthwhile journey to take.
