Check this freaking thing out.
So, not even one post in 2012. How freaking pathetic is this blog. “Just let it die already!” you’re screaming. Who am I kidding, no one is reading this. I only have time for doing tweets lately (@bluedistortion – follow me bro!). I also spend a lot of time eating cookies.
Life is crazy and cookies are delicious.
Anyhow, I thought this was awesome–there’s been a Moog Modular on eBay for what looks to be over a month now. The best part? It’s only $60,000. So sexy. Worth it to go and check out the pictures. It’s in amazing condition. Imagine all of the people you could impress with this thing (ladies?).
This multi-generational Moog system has the following modules included: 901, 901A, 3-901B, 4-902, 903, 2-904A, 904B, 907A, 4-911, 911A, 921, 951, 960, 961CP, 962CP, 984, 991, custom 994 (3x), 2-CP3A, CP4A, upgraded CP8A.
Today we feature Tim Reed who has the electro-acoustic ambient sounds down to a science, quite literally. Tim has a PhD in composition from the University of Florida and currently teaches music theory and composition at Manchester College in Indiana.
The work A Nonfunctional Teapot echos mangled samples of what I assume is teapots and other strange sound recordings based around the theme. These manipulations weave in and out creating a very interesting composition reminiscent of the great John Cage or Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Please download and enjoy. Tim Reed has plenty of other music for your perusal at the following links.
I’m going to go put on some tea.
Here is a nice melodic, electronic tune from the Seattle composer Subaqueous. His music is a unique blend of beat science, melodic entrancement, and composition. Liquescent is an aptly named jam: flowing, liquid funk. You can purchase the album off of his Bandcamp site, or, keep up to date of new tunes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!
Here is a little trip hop tune with distorted breakbeats and pretty heavy bass, perfect for freestyling over. I don’t believe this song was on the website previous to the update, it’s available on the Origami Ham album. This song was done entirely on the Emu E5000 Ultra with samples from the Waldorf Microwave XT. Enjoy.
You can download the album in it’s entirety here.
