Botborg presents "PSNKY Test Subject #1 : Connection to the Photosonicneurokineasthograph"
"Botborg is a practical demonstration of the theories of Dr Arkady Botborger (1923-81), founder of the 'occult' science of Photosonicneurokineasthography - translated as "writing the movement of nerves through use of sound and light". Raw electronic signals are fused and rewired to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia."
Note there's 3mins of silence about 2/3 of the way through you'll need to skip.
Zarias Photography Critique [video podcast] Well worth the time to watch these. Even if you aren't aiming to sell your pictures, which is an assumption here, there is still some great advice. [thanks Iain]
I'm on holiday, what do you expect. I've got a house to paint.
"The latest instalment of Skip to the End is now available at www.thejuxtaposition.co.uk/skiptotheend.html I'm afraid it's a bit **** so be careful about when and where you listen to it. Pete" [55MB MP3 & tracklist on webpage]
"Jazari is essentially an automated, electromechanical percussion ensemble, controlled using two Nintendo Wii controllers. It consists of a MacBook, a bunch of Arduino boards and a room full of drums fitted with solenoids and motors, and software written in MAX and Java which parses input from the Wii controls and plays the drums. The software is also capable of improvising with the human operator, by imitating, riffing off and mutating what he plays.
"Jazari was developed by a guy named Patrick Flanagan, who had been playing around with algorithmic composition, only to discover that people don't want to hear about algorithms, but do want to see a good live show. Anyway, here there are two videos: one of a Jazari performance (think robot samba float, conducted by a guy waving Wiimotes around; the music has a distinctly Afro-Brazilian feel to it), and one of Flanagan explaining how it works."

The Wrongamin is an excellent, easy to build sound maker that can create a range of sounds. From crackles not unlike the sound of a dusty old record to a deep hungry animal growl heard through several out of control AM radios.
Miike Teknoist says: "The vast majority of dubstep i think sucks but Septic Insurgent makes 'music' from a genre that doesnt see alot (quite cheap coming from a gabber/breakcore enthusiast innit ;) anyway, keep your eyes peeled for tracks from him on my new techno label out soon.. also, get your peepers round the awesome guest artwork from Harry Shotton. ninjacolumboZoMbFREE8-SEPTICINSURGENT-Analemma [38MB zip]

NIN say (or said, as I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago): "Our 2008 Lights In The Sky tour was an ambitious multimedia production on a scale well beyond anything we'd ever attempted before. Everyone involved was extremely proud of how it came together, and we were devastated when, for a variety of reasons, we were unable to capture it professionally for a theatrical or commercial release. As a "plan B" of sorts, early last year we released a massive 405gb free download of raw HD footage captured at three different shows during the tour. The idea was to get the footage out in the wild and see what our notoriously enterprising fans could do with it. There were no rules. No strings attached. This was a gift, and an experiment, and for the past year we've watched it come to life in more ways than we could have ever imagined."
Filmed in Sacramento, Portland, and Victoria by the Nine Inch Nails team, edited and produced by their fans, The Gift is a stunning work in 1080p High Definition video with 5.1 Surround Sound, multi-language subtitles, and artistically-driven ethics."

Simon Reynolds: on the Hardcore Continuum "Illustrated by seminal tracks, revered journalist Simon Reynolds outlines his oft-quoted theory of a 'hardcore-continuum' that links all the UK's rapidly changing electronic music genres. The talk at FACT was run in association with the Wire Magazine, and part of the Ding Dong exhibition."
I met Benji Bower last week. He plays the staggering collection of instruments below to provide his live one man soundtrack to Ali Baba & The Forty Thieves show at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol. Taken with permission. (The show is highly recommended (by me) btw although my nephew only enjoyed it "middle".)
From the programme: "Benji is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is a founding member of Unforscene and UFS productions. Theatre credits include: Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me, We're Going on a Bear Hunt (Bristol Old Vic), Aesop's Fables, Stickman (Scamp Theatre), Strange Case (Bristol Old Vic / Pervasive Media), Ugly Duckling (Tobacco Factory), City of One, Jolity Farm (Myrtle Theatre), TV credits as composer include Colut of a Suicide Bomber (Channel 4), Cmonics Britannia, Rude Britain (BBC4), Blown Apart (BBC2). As Unforscene: Sulston Connection, Pacific Heights, New World Disorder (Kudos), Fingers and Thumbs (Tru Thoughts)."
The fascinating looking spiky thing to the right of the photo is a waterphone.
"The Waterphone was invented and is patented by Richard Waters (pat.#3896696). Each instrument is unique and made to order. Richard personally makes, tunes, signs and dates each Waterphone. The sound of the Waterphone has been compared to the haunting melodies of the Humpback Whale and voices from inner/outer space. Waterphones have been described as acoustic synthesizers, Waterharps, a musical “Aladdin's Lamp”, and “Whalephones”."
The ongoing competition page includes recordings of what people can do with it that are definitely worth listening to.
"9 Countries was recorded on location in Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Tibet, India, Egypt and Greece between October 2005 and March 2007 by Tom Compagnoni. What you hear has been entirely assembled from these field recordings, no additional samples used. "Recorded, edited, mixed, re-mixed, mashed and mastered by Tom Compagnoni 2005-2009"
"The Skip to the End review of the decade is now on line at www.thejuxtaposition.co.uk/skiptotheend.html [tracklist etc.] It's a personal look back at the last 10 years which is tricky seeing as I have difficulty remembering what I did last week. Consequently there are some blatant ommissions (no Venetian Snares, Rotator, Dub Step or Ukuleles - you've probably had enough of them from previous casts) and it's 25% longer than normal. Feel free to skip to the end of all the opinionated text that accompanies the track list. Hope you enjoy it and have a Happy New Year. Pete" Direct link [70MB MP3]
Yes, it really is someone playing a barbed wire fence like a violin. And it sounds amazing. See the Relative Violins page for some other fantastical instruments.
Spectra Liquid site says: "HO HO HO! Christmas would be nothing without gifts. Therefore, we and our newly signed artist, Frank Riggio, decided to give you his second album, Anamorphose, for FREE! That's right, 14 tracks of cinematic, experimental electronica, ranging from nu-jazz to film score soundtrack atmospheres and detailed sound design patterns are now available in both mp3 and wav. Only a few months before Frank's first CD-release on Spectraliquid, he couldn't provide the label and his own fans with a better gift than this.

From The Wire: Taking the concept of "minimal electronica" to a new level, a group of artists have created a collection of music tracks composed in only 140 characters of SuperCollider source code. You can listen to or download the tracks here [zip]. [via dev/null] "It started as a curious project, when live coding enthusiast and Toplap member Dan Stowell started tweeting tiny snippets of musical code using SuperCollider. Pleasantly surprised by the reaction, and "not wanting this stuff to vanish into the ether" he has recently collated the best pieces into a special download for The Wire's online readership here.
"Many of these pieces are actually generative, so if you re-run the source code (the track titles) you get a new piece of music."
"A brand new Skip to the End (Peel to the End) is now on line at www.thejuxtaposition.co.uk/skiptotheend.html [tracklist & download link] It includes some tributes to John Peel, some scarry, evil Monkey Funkers (just right for Halloween) and nods to the 40th anniversary of the internet plus all the usual crap.

"Continuum, the newest installment in the IDMf library, is an electronic music album to behold. Beginning with the hard-hitters and slowing down to a softer touch, this compilation showcases the diversity of genres displayed on the IDMf netlabel, including breakcore, dubstep, house, breaks, ambient, and IDM. The tracks are arranged as they would be in a double CD package: Side A includes eight tracks jam-packed with energy that smoothly segue into a lighter mix of glorious beats on Side B. IDMf is proud to introduce a few new artists along with some of “golden oldies” who have appeared on previous compilations, bringing you the most well-rounded and genre-stomping release from IDMf yet!" It's a bit of a mixed bag but there's some nice stuff in there.

I've chilled out a bit but with that comes more space to hear in-between the beats and more interesting sound design. That's the approach I took with my recent double E.P 'Lockout' and the mix follows the same path but with fewer vocals and more beats.
"For the mix, elements were taken from all over the place and layered together, a lot of UK funky coming out at the moment reminds me of old techno and warp stuff, mixing new afro-Caribbean influenced stuff like Roska with old Latin influenced Black Dog, Cooly G with Luke Slater" More info

Pete says: "Hi all, Just got back from a rainy holiday, but while I was away a new Skip to the End appeared. This one is the result of radio interference/collaboration with London based podcast Radio Clash (http://www.mutantpop.net/radioclash/). Basically every 15mins of either podcast skips over to the other show. Therefore to hear the whole 60mins of Skip to the End you'll have to download my podcast from the usual www.thejuxtaposition.co.uk/skiptotheend.html and the Radio Clash podcast from http://www.mutantpop.net/radioclash/page/2/ Confused? You will be... I was going to draw you a diagram, but maybe Tim explains it better on his page. Probably better to just listen to the music and not worry about where it comes from. It was fun in the making and thanks to Tim for such excellent contributions, I know who got the better deal. Next show at the end of August will be the 2nd anniversary show, Still shit to the end. Pete"

Parasite - Conscious Reggae Mix for Charlie "Charlie Olsen passed away on 7th June 2009. He was my best friend, lover for a time, and like a brother to me. He was a true warrior and was always there for me when I needed him most. Charlie will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him, especially me. To celebrate and remember him I have laid down a selection of some of his favorite conscious reggae and hip hop tunes. The mix ranges from Sizzla, Damien Marley, Richie Spice and Willie Williams to Dead Prez, RZA (from the Ghost Dog soundtrack) and a bit of Stivs thrown in for good measure, which he used to pump from his bedroom window on Sunday mornings (much to the dissaproval of the church goers across the street)! Charlie, this one goes out to you bro. Love you always xxx" RIP Charlie. Whenever I met him he was a really nice and very funny guy.

Quoting from a flyer Demon Cabbage gave me: "The Wrong Music Show is a weekly radio broadcast on Sound Art Radio, based in Darlington, South Devon.

If, like me, you recorded Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle recently, rather than watch it as it went out, you will have missed the Red Button interviews after each show with Armando Iannucci. All six are now available on Lee's website. Highly recommended.

"Leeds legend and a man who surely can’t remain in the shadows of the underground for long, Prod makes his welcome debut on Dead Channel with a collection of gems from his personal archive.
"Multi instrumentalist, achingly talented and completely devoid of the sort of ego you normally associate with such things, Prod has honed his craft almost to the point of absolute perfection. Although this album lacks a lot of the vocal and instrumental elements that are such a feature of his new material (check the awesome new album ‘The Artworks Formerly known as Prints’ out now on Pollinate Records) it still has a musical depth that many attain to, yet few attain. Add to that a dose of fun, and a keen eye on the dance floor and you have what will, we’re sure, become a future Dead Channel classic."

"Bruce Stallion (formally Black Rabbit) is the new project from Brighton based Dj Floorclearer (Guy Appleton), known for his frantic amen breakcore and for being part of the notorious Wrong Music party crew.
"Under his new guise guy seeks to meld his love of ridiculous arse shaking bass, the spirit of 90’s hardcore, Amiga game music and hip-hop. Mixing up dubstep, heavy bass and the occasional bit of bassline cheese he aims to make music that pleases the dance floor and the headphone listener by gently tweaking the party centres of the brain.
"Influenced by the likes of Zomby, Rustie, Drop the Lime and AC Slater, but with a sound and mood of its own, a kinda cough syrup hazed equivalent of the Outrun theme with 90’s rave piano. And lots of bass."
