Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 16 Sep 2010 7:15 pm

Tama Sumo will be our live guests on Motor FM tonight – Thursday, September 16th – for The Radio Sessions – Electronic Beats On Air.

Tama Sumo knows Berlin like the back of her hand and can be caught DJing in various dark techno taverns. Know by her friends as Kerstin Egert, she has been spinning her blend of shady techno since she arrived in the Germanic capital back in 1993.

Fatima’s ‘Warm Eyes’ feat. Dam Funk

Delivered... Posted by Beatportal | Scene | Thu 16 Sep 2010 5:10 pm
London's Eglo label is only five releases deep, but it's already made a huge splash with the slow-motion funk of Floating Points, who co-runs the label alongside Rinse FM DJ Alexander Nut. Back in April, they released a gorgeous EP from London vocalist Fatima, with production from Funkineven, Veebeeo, and the one and only LA funk maestro Dam Funk; the latter's track, 'Warm Eyes', now gets its own video. What a jam: a perfect late-summer groove with an early '90s vibe, it's a slice of pure, soul-brightening niceness. Dam Funk has a new record out this week, as well: the 'Hood Pass Intact' EP on Stones Throw, featuring three gooey electro-funk jams (including the spine-tingling 'How It Be Between U & Me?') and an instrumental mix from Devonwho. For funk of a very different stripe, check out Eglo's new release, the 'Dead Leaf'/'Warriors Galactic' from newcomer Arp.101, sure to appeal to fans of Actress, Dam-Funk, Zomby, and of course Floating Points. Keep reading to check out all three records.

UNKLE has ‘The Answer’

What do snowboarding, surfing, hardcore punk, and electronic music have in common? All four feature prominently in Follow Me Down, a new, feature-length documentary from director Ross Cairns with an original soundtrack by UNKLE's James Lavelle. Illustrating the maxim that "there are no easy rides in life," the film follows the snowboarders Jeremy Jones and Xavier de la Rue, hardcore band Gallows, UNKLE themselves, and other extremity seekers in their quest to push the limits of endurance and expression. Of his soundtrack, Lavelle says, "I wanted it to be organic: nature and its volatile balance definitely dictated the mood. There’s an element of permanent menace in the sound design. I was in awe of the Antarctica scenes and the power of the human spirit. It can make you feel quite small." You can watch the entire 74-minute film here and download Lavelle's soundtrack for free here. In other UNKLE news, this week they released 'The Answer' EP, featuring remixes from Future Beat Alliance, Psycatron, Mr Lager, Mitja Prinz, Fergie, and Tim Goldsworthy. Keep reading to check out the release.

Bob Dylan introduces Google Instant

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 16 Sep 2010 1:05 pm

Remember the time when selling out just meant that, ‘selling out’? Well now, it doesn’t seem to be such a dirty word anymore, artists are teaming up with brands and agencies left, right and centre for exposure purposes. Have a look at Faithless with Fiat or even the fact that pharmaceutical company Procter and Gamble are starting their own label.

One team-up in particular that we think is pretty nifty is the promotion of Google’s new search engine feature, ‘Google Instant with Bob Dylan‘. His memorable music video, Subterranean Homesick Blues from 1965 is used as an underpinning for Google’s campaign. You know the one, with Dylan in some back-ally holding up placards of his lyrics. Shows us how simple things were back then. No budget, but highly effective.

Well, Google Instant was launched last month and like Apple, Google used a high-powered synergy with a famous act like Bob Dylan to give their promotion a larger awareness.

Let’s not forget Dylan has had an illustrious career representing brands, we can’t forget him being the ambassador for Victoria’s Secret and then shaking hands with Starbucks. As one wise heckler back at one of Dylan’s concerts 1966 shouted, "Judas!!"

The interaction between music , technology and advertising couldn’t be more seamless with this short video, have a look:

Klaxons present Jack Bond documentary

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 16 Sep 2010 12:06 pm

Jamie Reynolds, lead-singer of the Klaxons, presents a documentary on JackBond; one of Britain’s most radical filmmakers who had over a fifty year career redefining the documentary, art-house drama, music video and television.

Jack Bond is of course one half of the only pair (with his now deceased lover Jane Arden) of filmmakers who the infamous visionary Salvador Dali agreed to work with. Their story began in 1965 when Bond, then 28, with Arden spent two weeks with Salvador Dali filming the revolutionary documentary Dali in New York. They would remain the only film crew Dali would ever agree to work with.

The Reynolds and Bond documentary comes courtesy of VBS.TV, the landmark online TV channel from Vice Magazine. According to the press release, “After reading about Jack Bond’s films in Vice a year before, Jamie Reynolds had became an obsessive, collecting his films and discussing them endlessly with the only people he knew who’d seen them, Vice writers and VBS producers”. Sometimes, only press releases can say what it is that needs to be said.

Nevertheless, VBS made Jamie’s dreams come true by getting the pair together for a day and filming it all. In VBS meets Jack Bond, Jamie and Jack spend the day together in Hampstead pubs recounting Jack’s tales of loosing 50 mental patients on a shoot, bumping into famous friends, and discussing Jack’s relationship with Jane Arden. Eventually, drunk, they finally end up at the fun fair, reciting poetry on the teacups.

Now, however you may feel about Vice Magazine, one thing that can be said about their organization is that their TV channel is one of the best things on the internet. Their content, although idiosyncratic, is littered with literal brilliance. Hopefully, this will be one of brilliance and void of idiosyncrasies.

Drawing Sound: Crazy Touch Interface Sound Experiments with Usine, PC

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Thu 16 Sep 2010 6:08 am

The quickest route to expressing an idea remains the gesture of a hand. That gesture may be crudely interpreted through today’s touch displays, but the immediacy remains. Presumably because of some of the device’s limitations, a lot of the experiments with the iPad have involved controllers that operate independently from sound software, like a remote control. Those interfaces, while useful, largely simulate existing hardware controls in a more flexible form, rather than introduce new ideas. But it seems the long-term potential is in designs that unite touch, graphic, and sound in a single piece of software, exploring new paradigms for interaction along the way.

Usine is one of music creation’s most surprising secrets: it’s powerful sound software that incorporates creative touch interfaces as a core design principle. And in the video above, it’s running on a relatively cheap PC two-touch display from Packard Bell. Nay-Seven is one of the founders of the Usine community, all while lecturing internationally, and has been pushing the Usine software to its limits.

Here, he tells us about some of his latest experiments, and the potential they hold.

Always looking for a way to use the computer as a real musical instrument, my latest works try to combine graphics and music using a touchscreen interface. The software Usine from sensomusic gives me the freedom to build my own interfaces. Some examples:

Drawing pitch and pan

Here [at top], the purpose is to draw directly some pitch information on the waveform display of a sample. I’ve also added an LFO [low frequency oscillator for modulation]; this way, the drawing can move slowly according to different speed presets.

[At bottom], I play with pan and volume: the x position of the black ball on the lines gives pan information and y the volume. As I’m on working with a dualtouch screen, I can quickly draw some speed changes. Note that this panel is not only for pan and volume; I can also send this drawing to others parameters like delay and filters, here with the << button.

Geometry …or not

This workspace is also dedicated to drawing. I’ve built four layers, each one with its own color and its own sound. The XY position gives the pitch value of the notes and other parameters, like velocity or pan. The geometry provides sequences; lines give a kind of glissando.

Vertical sequencers and Pads

Using the new Matrix module (thanks to Martin Fleurent), I’ve built this vertical sequencer [seen at top]. I like the idea that notes fly under my hands this way. [At bottom], I‘ve built pads for tablet surfing on the “iPad” mode, adding also a drone option.

Multitouch gestures

On the same idea of movement, here are two screenshots of a video illustrating a new patch made by Olivier Sens (the Usine developer). This patch provides multitouch gesture recognition, opening new doors to ways in which we use our computers and touchscreen. We can easily imagine some new symbols or alphabets, and new forms of interactions in our musical practice. You draw a ‘V,’ you play with volume, you draw a ‘P,’ you play with pitch…

For more on the display, check out the Packard Bell Viseo 200T. It was previewed by Engadget last year and carried a street price – impressively – of only about US$300, all for a 20-inch screen and low latency. I’m gathering either something happened or it was re-branded for distribution outside the UK; anyone with more information, let us know in comments and I’ll update the story.
