Robert Henke at Decibel Festival 2010 (by Primus Luta) This is so true.
Bowl of Dust
I’ve been revisiting a grouping of acoustic guitar songs that I wrote about three years ago after my brief stint in the mortgage industry. The tunes are very simple and straightforward, with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a twangy vocal delivery. This project began under the PLENUM umbrella, but its nature is such that it deserves its own name: BOWL OF DUST. Take a listen to a live...
As I said earlier, for me the achievement in mastering or in sound is that it...– Robert Henke (Monolake, Ableton) interviews Berlin-based Rashad Becker about all things mastering related. Loudness wars, over compression/limiting, and “visual” DAW mastering versus hands on hardware are all discussed. http://www.monolake.de/interviews/mastering.html
David Byrne Is My Art Dad →
Somehow by mystic chances of fate, David Byrne’s musings on his blog have been mirroring/answering many of my questions about the creative craft. This particular entry of his regards the practice of collaboration with another artist (or one’s self!) as an integral foil to the ego in a creative project. Here is a selection that really resonated with me. Please read the whole...

Synth Cameos on 80's TV
The first musical instrument that I craved to own and learn was the synthesizer. A child of the 1980s, I was obsessed with the weird and ethereal sounds that could come out of something that sort of looked like the piano in the living room. Now that I’m all grown up and able to acquire a few of these sonic beauties for myself, I often think back on the media that exposed me to the sheer...
This group of talented designers and engineers recently caught my attention on Create Digital Music, an electronic music blog that I read. While best known for the OP-1, a new portable synth swiss army knife that is gorgeously designed, the group has an impeccable website that encompasses not only music hardware, but more general industrial design and transmodern artworks as well. The...

Circuit Boards As Print Making →
I just watched this fascinating (albeit nerdy) set of videos on DIY circuit board printing. I amazed at the similarities between electrical component engineering and etch-based print making. (http://www.getlofi.com/?p=1997) I have seen some circuit board designs of late that have taken a decidedly aesthetic approach to their look. Moldover, a musician, has made an interesting CD recently that...

Trap Goin’ Ham! We’ve got pies flyin’ out. I don’t know what that means exactly, but it sure is catchy. This guy Pill will be reinventing the English language for quite some time. Thanks to BARRR for the heads up on this guy.
