Too good not to share…
Rachel Claudio- The Saddest ‘Hey Ya’ You’ll Ever Hear – Rachel Claudio flips Outkast
On April 23rd I will be seeing Alessandro Cortini at the Fox Cabaret along with Phil Western & Davichi and Smith. I’m looking forward to that. In the meantime I did some lurking and checked out these 2 great videos courtesy of Sonic State.
Listening to Vampyr by Steve Severin while re-wiring a project studio. Excellent soundtrack.
I never got to see the score set to the silent film. However, maybe some day we’ll get to hear it against the imagery.
It’s a fantastic recording.
I have been playing this all day. Sea Island sounds fantastic coming out of my KRK monitors. This is a great soundtrack to this odd weather we’re having here in Vancouver. Scattered showers & sporadic patches of Sun never had it so good. Future Music gave this album a 9 out of 10 and I think they got it spot on this time. This ambient Vancouver native delivers all the goods and more with this Kranky Records release-Sea Island.
Leafcutter John has been involved with so many wonderful projects over the years. I first became an admirer of his music after listening to his agoraphobia inspired album-The Housebound Spirit. However, it was The Forest and the Sea where I think he started coming into his own with a unique blend of experimental sounds and electro-acoustic soundscapes.
There are a few other videos related to this one below (not posted here). In one of the other videos he discusses one of his Cycling 74-Max/MSP patches. In the other video he shows us his gaming controllers MIDI modified which he uses to trigger samples within MAX/MSP. He has used lots of his controllers with the jazz quintet-Polar Bear.
I’m posting this 2006 video for some of my friends and colleagues. I’ve referenced it several times. I haven’t seen it online, so, I figured it needed to be shared.
In this video he gives us a track by track breakdown of his song entitled, Maria In The Forest. Using field recordings and modified instruments, the track is filled with beautiful sounds throughout.

Make sure to check out the latest issue (March 2015) of The Wire for a great article of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. I look forward to getting my hands on their latest release.
I had a great time checking @amoebahollywood
I didn’t find everything I wanted, but I still walked out with several great deals and albums. The staff there was incredibly friendly too.
I will be back very soon.
