Acid-inspired

https://soundcloud.com/kabbak/sets/pjs 🙂 I modded a TD-3 (TB-303 clone) and have been having fun with it. The 4th (most recent) track goes into KD distortion vocal formant territory so I though of you, dear IHM. description: 1) Revisionist Western swagger 2) West Coast funk 3) Melodic acid lines 4) ...

Explorations in microtonal analog synth

A rebuke, a prayer, a sonic eclipse to forget for a few minutes. Something for this year.

Re: RIP Cor Fuhler 1964 - 2020

Sad to read this, but thank you so much for posting. I was just thinking of Cor's music the other day and how I appreciated his contributions here. Then I saw the recent contributions to the AMPLIFY 2020 bandcamp... RIP Cor Tributes from AMPLIFY 2020: https://amplify2020.bandcamp.com/album/out-the-b...

Re: Mark Fisher on the Slow Cancellation of The Future

"... But faced with 21st Century music, it is the very sense of future shock which has disappeared. This is quickly established by performing a simple thought experiment. Imagine any record released in the past couple of years being beamed back in time to, say, 1995 and played on the radio. It’s ha...

Re: Does It Matter Whether We Own Music?

Ps: best explanation of how 16/44 is absolutely fine as a consumer format is this video and this article . I find the video the best explanation on digital audio I've seen, and especially regarding dither (I managed to fininsh my studies without understanding it properly until I watched this). As m...

Re: Does It Matter Whether We Own Music?

Wait, so you're saying that people can her frequencies above 22.5kHz? And 96dB of dynamic range is more than any recording will ever use. Even the wildest Classical recordings tend to max out around 55dB. And digital distortion is almost nonexistent. Less forgiving, yes, but that is what fidelity i...

Re: Does It Matter Whether We Own Music?

Just to clarify a couple of points, “high resolution” digital is 100% bullshit, as 16/44.1 fully captures everything audible to humans. And digital is indeed higher fidelity than analog due to having far less second order harmonic distortion. Oddly, there are people out there that have the incorrec...

Re: I hate Facebook

Re: I hate Facebook

Hi IHM, I thought about you guys with this whole Facebook data harvesting thing. I was annoyed when IHM declined as the conversation moved to Facebook years ago (I don't do FB). It was nice here while it lasted. I really dislike the social media metrics of number of followers and likes and whatnot o...

Re: Rap Music

Future Reading Noz's year-end list for 2017 has me thinking about how the trappings of success changes the music from a hunger and emotional vulnerability into a winning formula that sells (or tries to sell). Thinking of the recent examples of Young Thug and Future. Future's example is probably the ...

Re: EDM

people seem to be conflating EDM with IDM. EDM: Electronic Dance Music - mostly modern club "bangers" optimized for the dance floor. IDM: Intelligent Dance Music (such a terrible acronym) - stuff like Autechre, Aphex Twin etc i.e. esoteric electronica often with weird beats and generally without an...

Re: EDM

EDM is really so broad (I don't know what that means exactly anymore) but Autechre would be the most IHM-friendly (but oftentimes not friendly in general ;) ) pick. https://www.youtube.com/v/VNzxsOB2Q3g Autechre https://www.youtube.com/v/Xw5AiRVqfqk Aphex Twin https://www.youtube.com/v/1FGtd3oH_PQ B...

Re: How much music do you listen to?

sometimes it's interesting, because e.g. as a seasoned listener to free jazz i had unlearned to listen to it in terms of aggression, and with kids (who generally used to like free jazz, not so much now) in front of the speakers that quality in some records suddenly reappeared ... or how much more c...

Re: Paris Transatlantic New Search Engine

The Ralf Wehowsky interview is a highlight. "The proof of the work always had to be in the hearing.

The point was if it was emotionally charged and fascinating to us after repeated ...

RIP Mika Vainio

...so many "RIP" threads on IHM now...

His music has meant a lot to me over the years. I obsessively listened to Pan Sonic and his solo stuff. One of my favorite musicians ever. Sad that he's gone. RIP Mika
