Keep the faith: bangers for Bandcamp Friday, even without the dancefloor

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Labels,Scene | Fri 5 Mar 2021 7:46 pm

For every person cut off from their vocation, their livelihood, their reason to go to work, in any industry - it's been a tough year. But if you need some dancefloor sounds to remind you what those can sound like, today there's a surprising bumper crop of releases.

The post Keep the faith: bangers for Bandcamp Friday, even without the dancefloor appeared first on CDM Create Digital Music.

FCC Reminds Analog LPTV/TV Translators of July 13 Digital Transition Deadline – Extensions Due by March 15

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 5 Mar 2021 5:50 pm

In a Public Notice, the FCC has reminded all analog LPTV stations and TV translators that they need to convert to digital by July 13, 2021 or cease operations.  The Notice reminds operators of these stations that, if they cannot meet the July 13 deadline, they can request an extension by March 15.  Upon a showing setting out that their inability to meet the deadline was for reasons beyond their control, the Commission may grant an extension of up to 6 months to construct the digital facilities (though, even if their conversion deadline is extended, the analog operations must cease by July 13).

One issue left unresolved by the FCC is the status of “Franken FMs,” those analog LPTV stations on Channel 6 whose audio is used to provide an FM radio service on 87.7 on the FM band.  As we wrote here, the FCC asked for comments on a request to allow these stations to continue to provide an analog audio signal even after the digital conversion deadline to allow these audio services to continue.  Though the deadline is getting close, there thus far has been no response by the FCC on that request.

July 13 is also the deadline for the construction of many digital LPTV stations granted in the first part of the last decade whose construction deadlines were put on hold pending the resolution of all of the issues surrounding the television incentive auction and subsequent repacking of the television band.  The same March 13 deadline for extension requests applies to these permits.

The Public Notice also suggests that any last-minute applications for modification of any of these facilities subject to the July 13 deadline be filed quickly to ensure that they can be acted on in time to allow construction to meet the deadline.  Other details of these policies and procedures are included in the notice.  If you have an LPTV or TV translator station subject to these deadlines, review this notice and related FCC orders carefully and take steps now to ensure that you can finalize construction by the coming deadline.

FCC Notes Violations for Two LPFM Operators for Spurious Emissions – Make Sure that Your Station is Transmitting Only Within Its Assigned Frequency

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 5 Mar 2021 5:45 pm

In two Notices of Violation issued on one day this week, an FCC Field Office cited Low Power FM operators for using transmission systems that, in addition to transmitting signals on their authorized channels, were also emitting signals on other channels that posed the potential for interference with other users on those other frequencies – sometimes not even broadcast frequencies.  In one case, the FCC noted that it was the FAA that reported the interference (the other notice released the same day is available here).

All broadcast transmissions have the potential for these spurious emissions on channels other than the ones for which a station is authorized, especially if a station is near other stations as frequencies can interact to produce these unintended emissions.  When constructing and operating any broadcast station, care should be given to ensure that these off-channel emissions are not of a signal strength beyond that permitted by the FCC rules as interference can occur and the FCC can potentially impose fines.

Neither of these Notices proposes a fine.  Instead, each asks for a response from the operator of the LPFM station and reserves the right to impose a fine depending on the response and any corrective action that is taken.  The FCC does not often publish these routine Notices of Violation in its Daily Digest of important actions from the Commission, as it did with these two notices.  This publication may be meant as a warning to all stations to ensure that their transmissions are within the permitted limits to avoid any enforcement action. So consider yourself warned!

Abdellah M Hassak integrates the rhythms of north African folk music with a bassline-heavy electronic pulse

From the spiritual polyrhythms of gnawa to the looping vocalisations of Sufism and the percussive tessellations of Berber folk, the world of north African cultures meet in the music of Morocco. Producer Abdellah M Hassak, AKA Guedra Guedra, has taken these rhythms as the core of his work. His name comes from the Berber dance music performed on the guedra drum; his debut EP, 2020’s Son of Sun, explored these diffuse roots through a dancefloor filter, with added field recordings and electronic Midi sequencing, a junglist collage that straddles tradition and contemporary dance musics.
