  4. Universal Music will next month issue In Search of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973 – 1979 a massive 18-CD and 7-LP Tangerine Dream collections. Tangerine Dream were pioneers of electronic and ambient music and this box set features newly remastered versions of the albums Phaedra, Rubycon, Ricochet, Stratosfear, Encore, Cyclone and Force Majeure all drawn from the original first generation master tapes and and new Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes of Phaedra and Ricochet by Steven Wilson. In Search of Hades includes eight CDs of previously unreleased material including two CDs of Phaedra outtakes, three London concerts in full (Victoria Palace Theatre in 1974, The Rainbow Theatre in 1974 and Royal Albert Hall in 1975) along with the previously unreleased full soundtrack to ‘Oedipus Tyrannus’, recorded in July 1974 (which is also on the blu-ray remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo by Steven Wilson). Due to what multi-track tapes were available Steven Wilson could only create stereo remixes of two tracks from Phaedra (the title track and ‘Sequent C’). Therefore for the 5.1 mix on the blu-ray, the other two tracks – ‘Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares’ and ‘Moments of a Visionary’ – are Penteo upmixes (i.e. not ‘true’ 5.1 but according to SW these still sound “very good”). Steven explains his approach below: “My role was to create new stereo and 5.1 mixes of whatever could be found of the original album multitrack tapes, but that turned out to be only Ricochet and 2 tracks from Phaedra. However, a number of reels of unreleased music were also found, such that ‘In Search of Hades’ also includes a generous 8 CDs of previously unreleased material. Perhaps most notable amongst these is the previously unreleased full soundtrack to ‘Oedipus Tyrannus’ (75 minutes) recorded in July 1974. Extracts from these recording sessions have previously been included on Rubycon, Encore and the Virgin sampler album ‘V’, but the full 75 minute recording has for the first time been mixed in stereo and 5.1 for the box set.” As well as the 5.1 mixes of Phaedra, Oedipus Tyrannus and Ricochet, the two blu-ray discs offer visual content in the form of a 1976 German TV performance and BBC Old Grey Whistle Test broadcast of Tangerine Dream at Coventry Cathedral. The record label are calling this the “definitive statement of this period in Tangerine Dream’s history” and in terms of packaging this is presented as a hardback book featuring new sleeve notes, rare photographs and images of memorabilia. In Search of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973-1979 is released on 31 May 2019.

    Behringer K-20

    Jeff Ford had the following to say about the K-20: I'll be honest, I love Korg mono synths. One of my all-time favourites is the Korg 770, this little guy's older sister. First off I'm amazed at the form factor in such a small footprint. This thing sounds awesome. Having a high pass and low pass with adjustable peak is amazing for fine tweaking tones. My 770 doesn't have that. One could get lost for hours just patching to different places and finding an endless sea of sounds. I never had an MS-20 so this was a learning experience of wonderment and at times pure awe. What a flexible little monster. Most definitely a generator of sounds from outer space. Add some tape delay and I'd go missing for hours on end. Wonderful job on this guy

    Twisted Electrons TherapKid

    TherapSid has a kid! TherapKid is a powerful & affordable duo-phonic synthesizer inspired by the mighty therapSid. Best of Both The first generation of SID (6581) had a wonderful gritty distorted filter but the later 8580 had a much stronger filter (more resonance). TherapKid offers a digital take on the best of both worlds with a strong filter resonance and 6581-like gritty tone. Monophnoic, Duophonic, Chords & Drones TherapKid has 2 voices, each voice consisting of 4 oscillators. In duophonic mode you can play 2 notes at once, in mono mode you can detune them. But you can take things further by detuning each of the oscillators individually to form chords or drones. LO/HI-Fi While the wavetables are 8Bit, they are processed by a powerful 96MHz 32BIT processor and put out of a 16BIT DAC with oversampling and filtering. This formula of retro sound generated by modern hardware allows for plenty of summing headroom, a rich sounding filter, and complex modulations. Features: + Set the volume of the 8 waveforms independently* + Tune each of the 8 waveforms independently (chords, drones!)* + Sine wave for pure tones and deep sub bass* + Muti-mode arpeggiator + Ring modulator + Duophonic or monophonic modes + Hybrid 6581/8580 inspired multimode filter (Low pass, High pass, Band Pass, Notch) + Dual therapSid style LFO with up to 48 connections that can be made a a push of a button. + 50 Preset memory with wild random preset generator + USB-MIDI + Sturdy powder-coated steel case + Hardware MIDI via included 3.5mm >Din5 cable + USB Powered (can be battery powered with a USB battery brick) *can’t be done on a real SID

  20. I just stumbled onto a full concert vimeo from RPI's EMPAC of the 80th birthday celebration. The concert features (among other things) a recreation of the noted Cistern acoustic reverb by Jonas Braasch. It's not the same as being in the auditorium but fans of Pauline Oliveros, Deep Listening, etc. might appreciate the celebratory concert. May 10, 2012 In celebration of Pauline Oliveros’ 80th birthday, complete with Tibetan dungchen, didgerdoo, accordion, meditative percussion, and the Fort Worden Cistern—a two-million-gallon underground water tank made famous by Oliveros’ 1988 Deep Listening album and recreated by Jonas Braasch from Rensselaer’s Architectural Acoustics program. Presented in collaboration with the Rensselaer Arts Department, this event will benefit the Deep Listening Institute. https://vimeo.com/193534724

    G2500 Virtual Analog

    G2500 is the virtual version of the classic ARP 2500 first created and released in 1970 by Alan R. Pearlman. The G2500 is made from in-house developed proprietary and optimized virtual analog modules, to reproduce the unique and fat analog sound of the original, bringing it to your desktop. All the original control features from the ARP 2500 are there, and because you can save your carefully programmed patches, the G2500 is even better than the real thing! Ten different virtual modules also found in the original: 1002 Power Control 1004-T Oscillator 1005 Modulator Amplifier 1006 Filter Amplifier 1016 Dual Noise / Random 1027 Ten-Position Sequencer 1033 Dual Envelope Generator 1036 Sample & Hold / Random Voltage 1047 Multimode Filter / Resonator 1050 Sequential Mixer Other Features: A new 1102 I/O Control virtual module not found in the original A virtual version of the 3001 Keyboard also found in the original Play notes using 16 keys on the computer keyboard and selecting octave with two additional keys Audio input from any system sound input device selected in the Preferences Audio output to any system sound output device selected in the Preferences MIDI input from any MIDI input device connected to the computer and selected in the Preferences Recognizes MIDI All Notes Off, Note Off, Note On, and Control Changes Save pieces of audio directly to disk in WAV format by the push of a button Setup is fully user configurable, in order to choose which and how many of each module to use Choose between two skins, Vintage and Black Option to display tooltips for many controls Use patch cables for even more connections than possible using the upper and lower matrix Load requester to load new patches from disk Save requester to save your own patches Patches are stored as text-files in directories on disk, to be easily manageable with operating system tools Zoomable user interface to easily go between a full overview and a detailed view of modules and controls Choose between windowed or fullscreen mode Studio quality 24bit/96kHz audio in and out (*) Audio is easily sent to e.g. a software DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) using software such as "Soundflower for Mac" The G2500 is easily controlled from e.g. a software DAW using the IAC Driver found in the MacOS "Audio MIDI Setup" Five banks to store patches in memory, which is a benefit when creating new patches Choose between Even Temperament and Bach-Lehman Temperament Toggle bandlimiting on and off to stay below the Nyquist frequency (half the sample rate of 96kHz) An optional post-filter for more smooth acoustic transients (*) Audio is actually 32-bit floating point, and as values goes from -1.0 to +1.0, it is comparable to 24bit audio and is easily converted to 24bit by the operating system, if that is needed in the further signal chain.
  27. "Plantasia" is a super rare and criminally neglected masterpiece of modern music that was made for plants. Literally. It's electronic music for plants to grow to. It was written by genius composer/arranger/instrumentalist/moog-master Mort Garson in the mid-70s under the moniker "Mother Earth". Most of Garson's releases during this period are difficult to get your hands on. Given Mort Garson's use of weird pseudonyms, strange subject matter, and the utilization of smaller, independent pressing plants, many of his original records cost a pretty penny. But "Plantasia" is different. Due to a bizarre (and possibly very dumb?) promotion which paired the record as a giveaway if you bought a Simmons mattress in 1976, authentic copies often remain hidden away on thrift store racks, garage sale driveways, or dusty attics. Because of how difficult it is to find this record, the resale market on mint condition copies is astoundingly high. Buying a clean copy of "Plantasia" at a record store could easily cost upwards of $300 USD. In Finding Plantasia, Tim and Morgan hit the road to search for this forgotten musical treasure in its natural habitat. In this documentary film, Tim and Morgan will be speaking to fans of this record and digging through the stuff society has discarded in search of a true gem. The road trip story provides a great framework to get into the nitty-gritty history of "Plantasia" and the niche culture that has sprung up around it. But, much like tiny baby seeds need water, Tim and Morgan need your help! About Tim and Morgan Tim Mahoney and Morgan Evans are real-life best friends and writer/producer/director/comedy people. Between the two of them, they've worked for companies like MTV, Netflix, The Onion, Nickelodeon, YouTube Premium, Comedy Central, VH1, Discovery Channel, and many more. They're also deep music nerds. Before they started working in entertainment, Tim & Morgan were big into the local Phoenix, Arizona music scenes, performing in experimental performance art projects and punk bands as early as 15 years-old. That was around when they both became obsessed with "Plantasia." More About Mort Garson Starting off as songwriter/arranger, Garson worked with artists like Bobby Darin, Santo and Johnny, Dorris Day, Cher, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Bobby Vee, Ruby and the Romantics, Jimmie Rodgers, Carol Burnett, Joanie Summers, the list goes on and on, crossing genres left and right. Near the end of the 60's, Garson was one of the first composers to begin working with the new Big Moog synthesizer. And the rest is history. As early as 1968, Mort started to release interesting and strange electronic music under pseudonyms. 1968: "Wozard of Iz," a bizarre electronic re-telling of the Wizard of Oz released under The Electronic Odyssey. 1969: he released Electronic Hair Pieces, an electronic version of the hit musical HAIR. 1971: under the name Lucifer, Garson released an experimental electronic record called "Black Mass." 1971, under the name Z, "Music For Sensuous Lovers." 1975, under the name Ataraxia, "The Unexplained (Electronic Musical Impressions Of The Occult)." 1976 he released "Plantasia" under the name Mother Earth. 1978, under the name Captain D.J., he released a a spacey funk record called "Disco UFO"

      Radio Has Changed   I am not sure what you were up to this weekend-- following the end of the U.S. shutdown, reading a book, enjoying a slice of pie. Whatever it was, you may not have noticed that radio changed forever.   Now, there will always be those who need to hear Jimmy Buffett once again, who love their “Margaritaville” and their Classic Rock Radio. I am not here for those people. I am here for folks who feel that their listening experience(s) are lacking something. I want to provide that missing mystery element.   And I want to do so using these 3 free, Public Domain Internet Radio Stations:   Endless Dub Radio-- You may love dub music as I do. What I wanted to do was to lay down a number of beat and basslines, and to allow the computer to select randomly from sets of sounds, looping a set of these sounds over the beats. I call the loop sets “Sessions”, and each has many sounds to choose from. As a result, when you tune in to Endless Dub Radio, you hear fresh version after version of dub-- never the same moment twice. To make things better, and in the spirit of dub music, you can bring the sounds in or out. Certain browsers allow you control the level(s) of each of the embedded players, and all allow you to turn players on or off. Tracks load themselves after each beat segment fades out, so the stream continues to evolve. Participate as much or as little as you choose, Endless Dub Radio is for you, not for profit, or for any commercial interests whatsoever: http://www.thomasparksolutions4.com/   Generative Soundscape Radio-- In a similar spirit, and with a similar functionality, GSR pulls randomly-chosen sets of sounds from particular Sessions. These sounds are soundscape elements. There are no beats with this station, just quiet ambient and drone elements that loop for periods of time and, when the first sound ends, cue a new set of sounds to load. This station has effectively held my interest for hours on end, and I have also managed to sleep while letting it play. Listeners can change sound levels using embedded controls. Generative Soundscape Radio is also not-for-profit, and its code and sounds are available in the Public Domain: http://www.thomasparksolutions.com/   Thomas Park Audio Explorer-- Listening to a radio station compose pieces for you can be cool, as with these first two stations. Sometimes you may want to listen to pre-recorded material. The Audio Explorer is great for this. Where it one-ups conventional radio is that it draws from multiple playlists, each chosen at random. These playlists, in turn, contain as many as thousands of unique tracks. These tracks are all cc-licensed. Listening becomes a process of discovery. Listeners are able to (and encouraged to) download tracks that interest them from the player page. The Audio Explorer was created in order to help adventurous listeners find music they might have missed. It brings no money in for Thomas Park or for anyone, and its components are Public Domain: http://www.thomasparksolutions3.com/   So, while you were eating pie this weekend, can we summarize the main change in radio? It was that, radio was always run by commercial entities, and served other purposes than its listeners. As of now, radio is free, generative, public domain, and created to serve you.

      So, I have always wanted to create my own internet radio station, my very own, apart from Live 365, Stillstream, MindSpiral, and all of the other cool stations out there. My Audio Explorer app was close to being such a thing, but was missing just about 11-12 characters in JavaScript. I began taking a class in JavaScript this week, and was able to fill in the gap in my player code, so that it will keep playing without being prompted-- and now you can listen to the Thomas Park Audio Explorer uninterrupted. There are no commercial breaks, and a number of playlists are featured and selected at random, including, at this time, field recordings of caves and factories, old 78 rpm records, minimal techno from the Zimmer netlabel, all of Treetrunk Records, and more. Come on by, it's free- bookmark us and have a listen. You can even download tracks as they play: http://www.thomasparksolutions3.com/

      This is about 30 minutes of a 53-minute show performed live at the Central Library in Saint Louis, MO. Music and video by Thomas Park. Special thanks to the Saint Louis Public Library, and especially Joe Schwartz, and to those able and willing to attend. Thanks also to Hunter Dragon and Osvaldo Cibils for allowing me to use some of their sounds (some sounds also by Thomas Park), and to poetess Amanda Wells for furnishing her vocal talents.
