VISUAL SHOW// CHAI PEENE (WANT TEA) BY RESIDENT ARTIST SKA

Delivered... sharnita | Scene | Fri 12 Oct 2012 9:33 pm

In a special commission for the festival, resident artists, SKA a British-Indian visual artist presents 'Chai Peene', a short looped video, which gives form and presence to memories of heritage and archaic domestic paraphernalia.

SKA re-appropriates the sweet design of British Indian chintz into images that are gutsy and strong. The result is extremely surprising and addictive, featuring highly personal music, in which textures play a key role, and which includes both the fertile tradition of Indian culture and the latest types of contemporary production.

Exclusives : GMG 41: of Montreal: Silence in Heaven

GMG 41: of Montreal: Silence in Heaven

Kevin Barnes wants to be alone right now. He contemplates his next aesthetical move like a chess player hunched over the battlefield. “I want to imagine myself on this island where I don’t have to engage with anybody else,” says the Athens, Georgia, native of his current situation. “The process becomes so much more meditative and therapeutic in that way.” Barnes recently woke up from a creatively fertile six-year period, or his “zombie state,” which exploded outwards from 2007’s depression-addled concept album, Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? Personal strife at home, audacious rock-opera tours (2008’s Skeletal Lamping) and time spent under the tutelage of Los Angeles composer/producer Jon Brion (2010’s False Priest) dot of Montreal’s recent timeline. It’s a variegated résumé that is unique amongst most indie-pop musicians, but Barnes wants to clear the high bar he’s set for himself.

Polyvinyl Records’ fall release of the 17-track of Montreal odds and sods compilation Daughter of Cloud is seen by Barnes as a great crossroads, a place from where the artist can reflect on past laurels and restructure a mind that’s always bubbling with volcanic activity under its surface. Ten of the album’s songs are previously unreleased, while the other seven were originally issued on limited, rare or out-of-print CDs and seven-inches. Let it not be unsaid that of Montreal knows how to provide unequivocal fan service.

All this hand-wringing over a new musical chapter is warranted, considering of Montreal’s 11th full-length, the self-produced neo-prog suite Paralytic Stalks, which was released in February of this year. It’s a Princely sequence of shifting musical compositions that play with method like a house cat bandies a terrified mouse. When presented with his recent dalliances in cosmic outlaw country as a potential escape hatch from his typical psychedelic experiments, Barnes is diffident about tossing yet another country release into the public arena. “I feel discouraged, even though I know I could do it. I could do it on a weekend and the music could touch a lot of people or no one. I want to make something more original. Everything is slowly evolving in my head… Up to this point, every musical change has happened organically.”

FILTER Magazine and Dr. Martens present A Band is Born featuring Gemini Club

All great bands include creative individuals who bring their own ideas and vision and collaborate well to make something special and unique. 

When Dan Brunelle and Tom Gavin met at Columbia College in 2009, they immediately found creative soul mates in each other. It wasn't long before they were writing songs together. Dan contacted Gordon Bramli, who was then concentrating on being a DJ, to help bring Gemini Club to a live audience. 

Gemini Club added drummer Ryan Luciani earlier this year to fully form the four-piece indie-electornica band from Chicago, Illinois.

3D Printing, From Headphones to Synth Accessories, Shows Both Promise and Obstacles

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Fri 12 Oct 2012 7:08 pm

Take it from one now immersed in manufacturing – making things is an epic process of production, delays, shipping, customs… 3D printing is the latest DIY technology to promise to get around that, armed by the seemingly-magical translation of digital files into objects in a way other machines cannot. We’ll be looking in depth at what 3D printing can mean for music starting next week, as interest in this technology reaches fever pitch, but here are a couple of revealing case studies.

For Teenage Engineering, makers of the OP-1 synthesizer, 3D printing seems to be a real breakthrough. Their line of accessories was a clever line of mechanical cranks and LEGO Mindstorms attachments, ingenious applications of little pieces of plastic. There was just one problem: shipping costs made these accessories too expensive, and customers complained. TE responded by posting CAD files. Head to Shapeways, and you can print these parts on a 3D printer for a small price. TE has gotten plenty of attention from the media as perhaps the first to go this route. [See Wired] (I suspect replacement parts are not something new – but going the 3D printing route perhaps is, a sign of just how new this medium is as far as mainstream adoption.)

In fact, the results are so clever, I can imagine small manufacturers now looking for ways of replicating the success – considering designs they might not have otherwise.

Clever, small accessories proved to be too small – racking up shipping costs – until TE experimented with letting users 3D-print their own accessories and replacement parts.

3D printing isn’t always a panacea, however: it could be both exciting and maddening at once.

Teague Labs suggests a far more ambitious project: printable headphones.

After all, headphones are largely about the physical construction; the actual sound-producing transducer element is reasonably simple. The Teague headphones are special on a number of levels. They are a complete pair of headphones with a nice-looking design, a complete product that needs only a small amount of electronics and prints the rest on a 3D printer. But even more compelling is the breakthrough application of a pro design to a hobbyist printer. Teague began with a professional ABS FDM machine, but adapted the same design to the far more-accessible Makerbot Replicator.

Just don’t get too excited, too fast. Traditional materials still offer potential that the actual substance of a 3D printer can’t match. Hobbyist printers pose their own challenges: I spoke to a 3D printing marketplace rep this week who explained to me that the fact that 3D printers aren’t running all the time in hobbyist environments causes clogs and breakdowns to become far more frequent, something you probably don’t think about. (Turns out, your inkjet printer suffers from the same problem; it’s just that ink is an easier problem to fix.)

And be prepared to wait – not only for the advancement of 3D printing, but for the model itself. These headphones take over 13 hours. That means, for instance, on the Fab Café printer you can rent at Berlin’s Betahaus, your headphones just skyrocketed to over 800 €. Oops. That almost makes Beats headphones look like a good idea. (Sorry, couldn’t resist. Apologies.)

Now, you can become your own headphones maker – and 3D print complex forms, easily. Just be prepared to wait about half a day on the printer.

At the same time, I love the way Teague articulates the underlying idea here:

With 3D printers becoming more accessible we decided to have a think around the concept “life in beta” as a future scenario. What if printed prototypes could become actual products? Meaning, once off the print bed an object could be assembled without any tools and be made functional by readily attainable components. I decided to stress test the premise with the challenge of making electronically simple yet functionally complex headphones.

There’s plenty to explore here, even without waiting for costs to come down and printers to get better and more affordable. (Oh, yeah, and – those things don’t just happen magically. They represent an engineering challenge a lot of people are tackling. So it’s best, I think, to look at what’s possible right now. And that turns out to be a lot.)

After all, the fact that Teenage Engineering made some clever accessories more affordable demonstrates that this doesn’t have to be a dream, after all.

Join us next week and in the near future as we look more at 3D printing advances with our summer industrial design intern and other experts in the field. Have a good weekend, and see you Monday.

The Japanese Popstars drop a new EP with Green Velvet and reveal some of their own favorite groovers

Delivered... Ken Taylor | Scene | Fri 12 Oct 2012 7:00 pm
From the looks of things, the Irish outfit known as The Japanese Popstars has slimmed down a bit. Once operating as a trio, the group now consists of principals Gary Curran and Gareth Donoghue. Still, that doesn't seem to have slowed down their run in any way, as the pair of current Popstars topped off their summer with a brand-new EP last month via the Gung Ho! label, again tapping the talents of Green Velvet (he was also featured on the group's "Let Go" tune) to lend his vocals to the record's grinding title track, "Matter of Time" (which, incidentally, was commissioned to be the official anthem of the 2012 International Music Summit in Ibiza). With all that in mind, we decided to put the young Irishmen to the test, and pinged them for a peek at their weekend arsenal. Clearly, they were up to the task.
