chinese whispers project

21 07 2011

this is the title of a remix project im involved with for interakt records . ive just sent them a bunch of sounds and short loops, these get sent on to the next producer, he makes his mark, then to the next and then once more to someone to pull it together into a tune to be pressed onto vinyl along with another 3 tunes done via the same process.

this is all in aid of ‘youth music’ a charity using music to help disadvantaged children. folk on board:

1.  Si Begg (Nooldles, Mosquito, Tresor)
2.  Carl Finlow (Device, SCSI-AV)
3.  Headcleaner (Terra Recordings, Rephlex)
4.  Cursor Miner  (Lo Recordings, Uncharted Audio, Combat)
5.  Baconhead    (Acroplane, Umbrelladelika Recordings)
6.  Pathic         (Pyramid Transmissions)
7.  Kero (Detroit Underground, Shitkatapult, Neo Ouija)
8.  Monster X      (Combat, Tigerbeat 6)
9.  Tim Exile     (Planet Mu, Beta Recordings, Warp)
10. Flint Kids    (Interakt)
11. Proem (Merck,n5MD)
 12. Otto Von Schirach  90%   (Schematic, Cock Rock Disco)
13. ADJ (Touching Bass, Pyramid transmissions)
14. Scanone    (Yellow Machines, Combat)
15. Anklepants      (QWERTY, Interakt)
+one more as yet unconfirmed

i dunno yet who my parts will be sent to, its all gonna be quite a surprise in the final play i think!!

im also gonna pass the same parts onto a different selection of remixers just for fun to see just how disperate (or not) the results are.


rave idol update/voting

20 07 2011

ok so its not called rave idol – that was last time. its rave factory. anyways audition was aired, they listened to my tune and….. not a bad word to be said! since i didnt tell them how id made my tunes was quite nice to hear that the production was “as it should be” and that “there some really interesting drum editing going on”. i cant edit or post produce so shows the modular theory is passable!!

good, intelligent comments from the panel on all the tunes actually and well worth a listen from an educational perspective to see how your feelings on the tracks compare as far as production, arrangment etc. – there are 29 tunes quite varied, and its 2 an half hours mind!!

anyways deal is to vote you have to buy the track for 23p which is split twixt artist and ill fm. if anyone wants to vote for me/buy the track you can do it here

next round is techno so im working on a track for then (everyone has to put a track in whether you get voted on or not) titled something like ‘in the beginning there was a sine wave’.  wack title but thats the lyric anyway. tell you what, wait for the tune eh? 10th august.
