1386 Retro Synth Ads: Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88, Keyboard 1982
Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88 drum machine 1-page advertisement from page 67 in Keyboard Magazine August 1982. Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about this ad. There just seems to be a lot going on. For example, am I supposed to know who "The Rhythm Section" is? The fact that they include themselves in an already long ad title suggests they must be some kind of a big deal. And then you find their name again in the bottom left-hand corner: "The SR-88. Another innovative product from The Rhythm Section by Sound Master Distributed exclusively by JTG of Nashville." So, let me get this straight. JTG of Nashville is the distributor of the SR-88 which was created by The Rhythm Section which is somehow owned or operated by Sound Master. That is waaaaay to much information. Sounds like something political is going on there, and readers unfortunately get stuck in the middle of it. There also seems to be a lot of ad-copy which actually doesn t give me much information. Reason #4 gives readers the most info including instant stop/start, variable tone and output switches, and a write/play mode indicator. The most I glean out of the four other reasons put together is: 16 rhythms, clock pulse and a price of under $200. The actual specs that are probably most important to potential buyers are inexplicably shoved into the bottom right-hand corner. Luckily for me, there are a few resources on the Web with more information about this beast. Unluckily for blog readers, as soon as I started looking for more info, I got swept up in a certain SR-88/Boss DR-55 controversy. Comparing the SR-88 and Boss DR-55 One of the first Web sites I hit while looking for info on the SR-88 was Dubsounds.com. The site includes a great little write-up on the SR-88, but, more interesting was finding out about a little controversy about whether the SR-88 or the very similar Boss DR-55 came out first. The two do seem mighty similar in functionality. For comparison purposes, I did a quick search on MATRIXSYNTH to find more photos. . A great photo of a gray SR-88 can be found in this December 2005 SR-88 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the less common, but definitely more cool, blue SR-88 can be seen in this January 2011 MATRIXSYNTH auction post. Comparing the two to the Amdek RMK-100 Interestingly, it s not just these two machines that look and function similarly. In this May 2009 MATRIXSYNTH SR-88 auction post commenter "PAC" notices: "Interesting. I have an Amdek RMK-100 (sold as kit), very similar!" Never heard of it, so I Googled "Amdek RMK-100" to see just how similar it was to both the DR-55 and the SR-88. Turns out (according to the Internet) that Amdek products were made by Boss/Roland back in 80s, and, not only that, but that the RMK-100 is actually the kit version of the Boss DR-55. Makes sense on why it would also be similar to the SR-88. I found an ebay auction for an Amdek RMK-100 going on right now with a great photo of the front panel (see below), and indeed it does share a lot with the DR-55 and SR-88 - but definitely not identical to either one. For example, it looks like the Amdek and SR-88 share a similar filler function that as far as I can tell is not available on the DR-55. And the DR-55 and the RMK-100 share a similar accent function that I don t see on the SR-88. Now where does the Electro Dynamics Corporation Programmable Rhythm SR-99 fit in? I also came across another machine with similar features - the Programmable Rhythm SR-99. No - not manufactured by Sound Master, but by Electro Dynamics Corporation. And, it too resembles the others in functionality, and especially the SR-88 in design also. I ve included a row of photos below to help make the comparison between the two. The SR-88 photo is from the 2005 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the EDC SR-99 photo is from the excellent BigBlueWave.co.uk site. I ve also thrown in a photo from another recent E-bay listing that included both - plus boxes and manuals! Sick! Obviously, Sound Master and EDC are somehow connected, although I can t find any info on the Internet concerning these two companies. I do know that they were both advertising separately in Keyboard Magazine in late 1983, making it unlikely that one of the companies changed their name to the other. Anyone know anything? And then there is the Clef Master Rhythm... Now, I m going to throw in a late entry. It s Sunday night, and I just came across this August 2010 MATRIXSYNTH auction post for the Clef Master Rhythm. It not only shares part of the name of one of the other units ("Master"), it too has many features of the other rhythm machines, and identical innards as the DR-55, but is expanded to include even more sounds: "This is essentially a fully expanded Boss DR-55 feature-wise and tone-wise. The circuits are identical (schematically and tonally) to the Boss DR-55, but the Clef Master Rhythm gives you way more instruments than the Boss DR-55..." Interestingly, according to the post, it pre-dates the Boss DR-55 - and also came in a kit form like the Amdek. "The Clef Master Rhythm came out a little before the Boss DR-55 in late 1979/early 1980. It was sold in two versions and available in greater quantities in Europe than in the United States. One version was a kit that the user put together and another one was a prebuilt machine." A photo from the MATRIXSYNTH post really helps show the similarities in functions with the others: What does it all mean? So, looking at all five machines, its almost like there was a rhythm machine salad bar of some sort in Japan, and each company stepped up to it and picked out which features they wanted to include in their product. And that begs the question - since we know there was a kit form available and there are claims that the Clef Master even has the same circuits as the DR-55, could all five products (and probably others) have used the exact same internal parts - each company choosing which features to include and then customizing in their respective rhythm machine? And if so, were those parts supplied by Amdek, or did all five get their internal parts from some other manufacturer? And if that is the case, then the question of whether the SR-88 or DR-55 came first doesn t really matter much, since it is likely that the kit components would have been available first. Plus, we have that one auction post with the claim that the Clef Master came out before the DR-55 - making it all even more confusing to figure out. Or, am I totally off the mark on all this? Were they all created separately? Maybe I ve just been fixated on this a little too much... I ll keep on looking for more info on these companies and any connection they might have, but if anyone want to buy all four and open them up to take a look - it would be muchly appreciated. :D Posted by RetroSynthAds at 12:05 PM Labels: 1982, amdek, clef master, dr-55, drum machine, electro dynamics corporation, keyboard magazine, rmk-100, Sound Master, sr-88, sr-99 2 comments: Simon said... Here s a funny thing - I seem to remember Clef in the early 1980s as a British company that made electronic pianos (touch-sensitive ones!) in kit form. Deep in the back of my mind I recall seeing them at a music fair in London with a couple of their pianos and some drum machines including a prototype drum/bass/chord sequencer called something like a "Band-Box". But it WAS a long time ago. February 12, 2012 at 12:36 PM Simon said... Looks like (for once) my memory didn t fail me. Here is a 1982 ad for Clef Electronics showing all the products I mentioned, plus a natty-looking little monosynth! BTW, I owned an EDC SR99 drum machine in the mid-1980s, but replaced it with a Yamaha RX-21 a couple of years later. February 12, 2012 at 12:46 PM

1161 body rock tv fitness
I have a non-fitness related life situation that I wanted to run by you guys
. I wanted to talk to you guys today about not always having to say your sorry. Are you one of those people who finds yourself apologizing for things just to smooth things over or avoid a confrontation? This ability is admirable in certain low-key non-crucial situations. It’s when we apologize for our beliefs and principles – or in the face of being bullied that we pay the high price of compromising ourselves. I have a friend who is being treated badly by certain members of her family. It really comes down to her not living her life exactly the way they think she should be living it. My friend is not endangering herself or others, she is kind hearted and generous to the extreme, but because she is not pulling the line and placing the needs of others before her own basic needs and happiness she is taking a lot of undeserved heat bordering on emotional abuse. Her strategy to this point has been to apologize left and right in an attempt to smooth it over and reset everything. It hasn’t worked and if anything it has given the people giving her a hard time more of a license to push it even further. I think there comes a time when you just have to say enough and stop apologizing. I think that there is more strength and balance in believing in yourself and respectfully staying firm in your truth. From this position I think both sides have the best chance of talking it through and resolving it. What do you guys think? Do you find yourself constantly apologizing to certain people in your life? Is it helping or making the relationship more challenging? Any advice for my friend?

1146 Glaucus atlanticus
Glaucus atlanticus, parfois appelĂ© glaucus atlantique ou francisĂ© en glauque dans les Ă©crits anciens, est une petite espĂšce de nudibranche de la famille des GlaucidĂ©s. C'est un mollusque gastĂ©ropode dĂ©crit comme Ă©lĂ©gant par ses formes et ses couleurs, mĂȘlant le blanc et le gris perle Ă  diffĂ©rents tons de bleu. Il vit dans toutes les eaux tempĂ©rĂ©es ou tropicales, oĂč il flotte Ă  la surface des eaux parmi le pleuston, la face ventrale tournĂ©e vers la surface. Il se nourrit principalement d'hydrozoaires dont il tire son pouvoir urticant, y compris pour l'Homme, en conservant certains nĂ©matocystes. Glaucus atlanticus est hermaphrodite et pond des chapelets d'Ɠufs laissĂ©s Ă  la dĂ©rive ou fixĂ©s sur les cadavres des proies des adultes. Au cours du XIXe siĂšcle, plusieurs grands naturalistes, pour une bonne part français, l'ont dĂ©crit Ă  plusieurs reprises, en dĂ©signant par de nombreux noms scientifiques diffĂ©rents chacune des formes, mais les Ă©tudes plus rĂ©centes ont conclu Ă  la synonymie de l'ensemble de ces noms. G. atlanticus est trĂšs proche de Glaucus marginatus, l'unique autre espĂšce du genre Glaucus et de la famille — dans l'acception la plus stricte de cette derniĂšre — et qui Ă©tait autrefois placĂ©e dans un genre monotypique sĂ©parĂ©, Glaucilla.

989 Blog de Hugues Truttmann: Entretien d'embauche et intelligence émotionnelle : la méthode I.D.E.A.L.
Entretien d'embauche et intelligence Ă©motionnelle : la mĂ©thode I.D.E.A.L. Pour un candidat, quelle est la diffĂ©rence entre un entretien d’embauche rĂ©ussi et un entretien d’embauche ratĂ© ? Partons de l’hypothĂšse que 2 candidats de formation et d’expĂ©rience Ă©quivalente passent un entretien pour un mĂȘme poste. Tous les 2 ont eu un entretien avec le mĂȘme recruteur. Pour le premier, le recruteur donne une suite favorable, pour le 2Ăšme, cela n’ira malheureusement pas plus loin, le candidat Ă©tait dans un mauvais jour certainement... Ayant fait passer des entretiens Ă  des centaines de candidats, j’ai constatĂ© que j’ai systĂ©matiquement donnĂ© une suite favorable Ă  ceux qui ont rĂ©ussi Ă  me faire “passer Ă  l’action”, c’est-Ă  dire qu’ils ont suscitĂ© chez moi l’intĂ©rĂȘt, puis le dĂ©sir qui m’a motivĂ© Ă  parler positivement et avec enthousiasme de leur candidature Ă  mes clients. Le candidat qui rĂ©ussit est donc celui qui est capable de transfĂ©rer de la sincĂ©ritĂ©, de l’intĂ©rĂȘt, de la motivation, de l’enthousiame ou toute autre Ă©motion positive. Le candidat qui rate a quant Ă  lui transfĂ©rĂ© des Ă©motions nĂ©gatives (dĂ©sintĂ©rĂȘt, peur, tristesse, ennui, etc...). Une Ă©motion positive fait passer Ă  l’action, une Ă©motion nĂ©gative, jamais. RĂ©ussir un entretien consiste donc Ă  utiliser efficacement son intelligence Ă©motionnelle. Voici une dĂ©finition de l’intelligence Ă©motionnelle : “HabiletĂ© Ă  percevoir et Ă  exprimer les Ă©motions, Ă  les intĂ©grer pour faciliter la pensĂ©e, Ă  comprendre et Ă  raisonner avec les Ă©motions, ainsi qu’à rĂ©guler les Ă©motions chez soi et chez les autres.” Une des composante de cette forme d’intelligence est l’empathie qui est la “capacitĂ© Ă  partager les Ă©motions avec autrui, sans confusion entre soi et l’autre”. Comment activer son intelligence Ă©motionnelle et motiver un recruteur ? En appliquant la mĂ©thode I.D.E.A.L : Cette mĂ©thode n’est pas une technique, mais plutĂŽt une attitude Ă  adopter. Avant chaque entretien dites - vous ceci et APPLIQUEZ - LE ! I Decide to act with Empathy by Asking questions and Listening Soit “Je dĂ©cide d’agir avec empathie en posant des questions et en Ă©coutant” Poser des questions (sincĂšres et honnĂȘtes) permet de garder le contrĂŽle d’un entretien, Ă©couter (sans faire semblant) permet de diriger une conversation et de montrer que l’on s’intĂ©resse Ă  son interlocuteur. Le meilleur des candidats n’est pas celui qui parle le plus, mais celui qui saura vĂ©hiculer une bonne Ă©nergie et des Ă©motions positives dans ses paroles et son attitude. Motiver un recruteur ne consiste pas Ă  savoir se vendre en faisant l’étalage de tous les avantages que l’on peut avoir. Ne faites pas comme ce (mauvais) vendeur de voiture qui vous prĂ©sente toutes les caractĂ©ristiques et superbes options d’une voiture SAUF celle qui va vous faire passer Ă  l’action, c’est - Ă  - dire vous engager en signant un bon de commande ! Posez donc LA question que jamais personne ne pose, mais qui vous fera obligatoirement ressortir du lot : Candidat : “Monsieur le Recruteur, pour ce poste, pourriez-vous me dĂ©crire quel est selon vous le candidat IDEAL ?” > ECOUTE Recruteur : “Pour ce poste le candidat IDEAL doit avoir les qualitĂ©s suivantes :” QualitĂ© A QualitĂ© B QualitĂ© C Etc... Candidat : “De toutes ces qualitĂ©s, quelle est selon vous LA PLUS IMPORTANTE ?" > ECOUTE Recruteur : “Sans AUCUN DOUTE, la qualitĂ© B” Candidat : “J’ai la qualitĂ© B, parce que (prouvez par des FAITS, expĂ©rience, formation, vĂ©cu) et d’autre part j’ai Ă©galement la qualitĂ© A, parce que...... et la qualitĂ© C, parce que...... > PASSAGE A L’ACTION Candidat : “Monsieur le Recruteur, dans ce cas, comment pouvons - nous envisager la suite des Ă©vĂšnements ? Testez, c’est puissant et cela fonctionne !

987 Alesis Micron
This is one of the cutest, smallest, yet most powerful synths I've ever put my hands on! The Micron is the sequel to the popular Ion, and while it can be considered as the Ion's younger brother, it actually has a few enhancements that are absent on the big bro. This is a very clean, precise, sparkly and definitely virtual analog (or analog modeled) sounding synth. Eight voices of polyphony are plenty for these types of units, but we would always want more. The synth engine is the same as the Ion though, but extra and welcome features include sequencing, arpeggio, and great on board percussion, and the ability to build patterns. The Micron really sounds bigger than it looks: while personally I feel that the character of its synth engine leans on the more digitally precise DSP side of virtual analog technology, it's certainly capable of huge, warm and fat sounds. The main panel is logically laid out and easy to understand. At the very left, a big red knob offers volume control; the two "m1" and "m2" sliders provide useful modulation control, typically (but not always) vibrato and filter cutoff. The three knobs labeled "x", "y" and "z" also offer way of modulating sounds, and can (ought to) be assigned to your favorite parameters. Two octave buttons, and other useful commands such as tap (tempo) and latch (sustains the notes) occupy the space at the left of the two-line backlit green display. Finally, a multi-function matrix with push-down knob serve as the central nerve system of the machine, letting you easily access programs, setups, configurations, patterns and rhythms. You do the programming by turning the knob to view the various editing pages. In all, it's simple to program, and the manual does a fantastic job of being easy to follow and easy to understand.

916 HughLeCaine.com - Bonjour
Biographie On a qualifiĂ© le scientifique et compositeur canadien Hugh Le Caine (1914-1977) de "hĂ©ros" de la musique Ă©lectronique. Il a grandi Ă  Port Arthur (maintenant Thunder Bay) dans le nord-ouest de l'Ontario. TrĂšs tĂŽt, il a commencĂ© Ă  construire des instruments de musique et Ă  expĂ©rimenter avec des appareils Ă©lectroniques. Dans sa jeunesse, il imaginait des "sonoritĂ©s merveilleuses" qu'il pensait pouvoir rĂ©aliser Ă  l'aide de nouvelles inventions Ă©lectroniques. Hugh Le Caine travaillant dans le laboratoire de physique de l'UniversitĂ© Queen Ă  Kingston en Ontario, en 1938 AprĂšs l'obtention de son diplĂŽme de maĂźtrise en science Ă  l'UniversitĂ© Queen en 1939, il s'est joint au Conseil national de recherche du Canada (CNRC) Ă  Ottawa. Il a travaillĂ© au dĂ©veloppement des premiers systĂšmes de radar et en physique atomique, se distinguant comme scientifique et publiant d'importants articles dans ces domaines. Chez lui, il poursuivait ses recherches en musique Ă©lectronique et en gĂ©nĂ©ration de son. Il a montĂ© son studio personnel en 1945 oĂč il a dĂ©butĂ© son travail indĂ©pendant sur la conception d'instruments de musique Ă©lectroniques tels que la sacqueboute Ă©lectronique, un instrument monophonique trĂšs Ă©laborĂ© qui est maintenant reconnu comme le premier synthĂ©tiseur contrĂŽlĂ© par tension. Par la suite, Le Caine a dĂ©veloppĂ© des systĂšmes de contrĂŽle par tension pour une grande variĂ©tĂ© d'applications. En 1948, Le Caine est parti en Angleterre pour quatre ans oĂč il a fait des Ă©tudes en physique, poursuivant son travail en musique Ă©lectronique Ă  son retour au Canada. GrĂące aux dĂ©monstrations publiques de ses instruments, il a obtenu la permission de dĂ©placer ses activitĂ©s musicales au CNRC et de s'y consacrer Ă  plein temps en 1954. Pendant les vingt annĂ©es qui ont suivi, il a construit plus de vingt-deux nouveaux instruments diffĂ©rents. Il a collaborĂ© au dĂ©veloppement de deux des premiers studios de musique Ă©lectronique Ă  l'UniversitĂ© de Toronto (inaugurĂ© en 1959) et Ă  l'UniversitĂ© McGill Ă  MontrĂ©al (inaugurĂ© en 1964). Le laboratoire de Le Caine au CNRC a fourni pratiquement Ă  lui seul l'Ă©quipement pour ces deux premiers studios. Les composantes de la saqueboute ont Ă©tĂ© sĂ©parĂ©es en unitĂ©s indĂ©pendantes - ou modules - permettant au compositeurs de leur assigner une tĂąche spĂ©cifique au sein d'un ensemble. Le Caine a enseignĂ© aux deux universitĂ©s et a influencĂ© toute une gĂ©nĂ©ration de compositeurs de musique Ă©lectroacoustique. Ses nombreux articles et dĂ©monstrations personnelles ont eu un effet catalyseur dans la communautĂ© canadienne et internationale. Il a exercĂ© une influence indirecte sur le dĂ©veloppement du synthĂ©tiseur modulaire Moog par l'entremise de Gustav Ciamaga, qui Ă©tait familier avec les filtres de Le Caine et qui a par la suite encouragĂ© Robert Moog Ă  dĂ©velopper son filtre passe-bas contrĂŽlĂ© par tension. Un des aspects les plus importants des instruments de Le Caine est sans doute leur efficacitĂ© pour la performance, leur maniabilitĂ©. Son obsession pour le "beau son" l'a conduit Ă  concevoir des instruments capables de produire un jeu expressif nuancĂ© caractĂ©ristique de la tradition orchestrale. Il avait un sens aigu des besoins de l'interprĂšte afin que celui-ci puisse exĂ©cuter les gestes qui, selon Le Caine, constituent l'essence de la musique. À cet Ă©gard, la sensibilitĂ© au toucher a Ă©tĂ© un Ă©lĂ©ment essentiel et a Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©e pour les claviers, les mixeurs et autres composantes, sous des formes d'application mĂ©canique, Ă©lectronique et au moyen de la sensibilitĂ© Ă  la lumiĂšre. Sur ce point, les conceptions de Le Caine Ă©taient tellement avancĂ©es que certaines des possibilitĂ©s qu'il a dĂ©veloppĂ©es n'ont connu d'application commerciale que dans les annĂ©es 1980. IdĂ©alement, un instrument de musique devrait offrir de bonnes qualitĂ©s sonores et une certaine flexibilitĂ© dans son contrĂŽle. Or ces deux objectifs ne sont pas toujours compatibles. Les instruments traditionnels exigent habituellement une longue formation avant que l'interprĂšte puisse tirer parti de leurs qualitĂ©s musicales. Dans la conception de ses instruments Ă©lectroniques, Le Caine a tentĂ© de mettre l'accent sur la maniabilitĂ© de l'instrument sans compromettre l'intĂ©gritĂ© de la musique. Chacune de ses crĂ©ations est une Ă©tude unique sur l'Ă©quilibre et le raffinement. Sur le CD, HUGH LE CAINE, COMPOSITIONS, DOMONSTRATIONS 1946-1974, nous pouvons entendre les enregistrements rĂ©alisĂ©s par Le Caine, oĂč il explore et fait la dĂ©monstration des possibilitĂ©s qu'offrent huit de ses instruments. Dripsody, sa composition de 1955 construite Ă  partir du son d'une seule goutte d'eau, compte encore parmi les exemples les plus jouĂ©s de musique concrĂšte. MalgrĂ© l'accueil favorable que ses compositions ont Ă  juste titre connu, Le Caine a conservĂ© une attitude critique Ă  leur Ă©gard : "Je ne me considĂ©rais pas comme un compositeur. Toutefois, j'ai senti que la seule façon de comprendre l'intĂ©rĂȘt du compositeur pour un instrument Ă©tait de l'utiliser moi-mĂȘme dans les diffĂ©rentes formes musicales actuelles." Son humour dĂ©prĂ©ciateur Ă  l'Ă©gard de lui-mĂȘme est Ă©vident dans certains des titres qu'il a donnĂ©s Ă  ses compositions, tel que A Noisome Pestilence (le titre est un calembours : l'anglais "noisome" signifie rĂ©pugnant ou fĂ©tide, mais suggĂšre Ă©galement "noise" qui signifie bruit, d'oĂč la traduction adoptĂ©e, "Une peste bruyante"). Lorsqu'on lui a demandĂ© pourquoi il avait nommĂ© sa premiĂšre composition Dripsody, il a rĂ©pondu : "Parce qu'elle a Ă©tĂ© Ă©crite par une goutte."

I’ve always believed it’s been one of the most important attributes of business success yet something very few business leaders talk about. So I thought I’d write a post about how I drive my personal creativity. As a practitioner of creativity rather than as an instructor of it I’m certain that there are many ways to get the creative juices flowing and how to release more creativity. The one that works best for me is visualization coupled with self talk. Visualization is so important to help yourself & others conceptualize ideas. It’s why I always work hard to find images for my blog posts & why all of my keynote presentations are visual rather than bullet points with words.

865 Evolver.html
Just Beautiful! What an amazing instrument! The DSI Evolver has the signature "old school" timbre down pat as well as being able to provide digital timbres reminiscent of the Waldorf Q. There's certainly a "rougher" side available as well with all the feedback implementation and controled distortion. Being able to make PM type plucked and blown sounds is just icing on the cake. Dave Smith should be commended for a job well done. Just have a look at the Panel Layout to get a taste of what this beauty can dish out - the controls are pretty much laid out in the form of a signal path graphic. Be sure to visit Dave Smith's Website! Evolver Sound Examples There are a lot of demos of the Evolver on the web showcasing the gutsy harsh sounds of this beast so I decided to post demos of some of my own patches as examples of the "softer" more "vintage" side of the Evolver's timbre. I make no apologies for these unpolished recordings - these are merely sound samples ;) Resonant Plucked Pad This pad shows some of the rich resonant nature of the filter. Soft Lead This is a simple analog brass lead patch. FM Pad A fun patch with lots of motion made using my "Audio-rate Filter FM" programming tip below. Warm Pad A nice bland-vanilla pad ^_^ What can I say? I love pads... For more MP3 demos showing the full gamut of sounds the Evolver and Polyevolver are capable of, please visit the excellent website of Stefan Trippler! The Definitive Guide to Evolver This rather in-depth guide to the Evolver goes places and does things a mere manual can't. This labor-of-love was crafted by Anu Kirk and with his kind permission, I am offering this fantastic resource right here in PDF format! A much smaller version (400K) is here but it dosen't have internal hyperlinks. Programming Tips Here's a fun repository of programming tips for the Evolver in all its incarnations. Please email me if you would like to add some. Fingered Wave Sequence Submitted by Dave Bryce. This brilliant technique has to be heard to be believed! Plus, its one of those cool things unique to the Evolver! This particular tip is so full of detailed information that it gets its own page! Audio-rate Filter FM Submitted by James Maier. Use the "Audio Mod" parameter in the Filter section to frequency-modulate the cutoff with the analog oscillator. Add resonance until the filter is just on the edge of oscillation then mod the cutoff with just a little triangle LFO set at a very slow speed. Amazing moving chorusing pad and lead sounds can be made this way. Fatter Bass/Pad Sounds Submitted by Mike Peake. Set the same sound in both channels (detuned saws, for instance). With the filters at the 24dB setting, increasing resonance cuts the passband as on the Moog filters. Set Envelope 3 to minimum attack, maximum decay and release, and sustain to maximum. This "creates" an offset, a continuous "on" signal while the keys are gated. Modulate one filters' resonance up (just one), or of the overall resonance level is high, us it to modulate one filters' resonance to its minimum. You get the resonant character plus the size of the non-resonant filter. Use Tri and Sine waves on that side too. "Warmer" Sounds Submitted by James Maier. The Evolver can make many ultra-bright and buzzy sounds due to its extensive feedback and distortion stages but sometimes people miss the subtler side of the beast. For a warmer sound use little or no distortion, close the filter just a bit and turn off the feedback and delay lines. I've managed to get dead-on Prophet5 timbres this way. Adding "Punch" Submitted by Mike Peake. Set the envelopes to linear, and use a Mod to modulate AmpEnv All by itself (lin through log responses with positive and negative self-modulation). This is of course fun on the filter envelopes as well. More Vintage Character Submitted by Mike Peake. Oscillator Slop, set at 5, doesn't come close to the Moog and other old-timer movement, so add slight (1 or 2) LFO to pitch modulations, with individual LFOs per oscillator, and a touch of LFO to LFO rate modulation. A tad of Envelope 3 to pitch helps as well. Don't miss out on the 12dB filter setting Submitted by Mike Peake. The 24dB setting has much more resonance, but the 12dB setting can sound nice and plucky, and do nice slightly fuzzy pads etc. DSI Evolver Waveshape Charts Below are charts I've assembled of the digital waveforms and their spectra as currently used in the DSI Evolver synthesizers. Originally these waves were unique to the SCI ProphetVS vector synth. I find these waveform/spectra graphics really usefull when programming sounds - maybe you will as well. Pay special attention to the spectra as this info is sometimes much more useful than waveshape in determining actual timbre - even before you hear what the waveform sounds like. These are designed to be downloaded (right-click & "save target as"), and printed at 300dpi on 8.5" x 11" pages - don't resize these images before printing or you will lose useful detail. Use them as a handy refrence. This information was cobbled together from various scattered sources (with very special thanks to Achim Gratz!). Any errors or omissions are my own. ^_^ HAVE FUN!!! Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 As far as the origin of these waves is concerned, one of the original VS engineers, Chris Meyer, said: "The original waves for the VS were created three ways - extracting single-cycles from sampled sounds, using a custom additive synthesis program, and using a program Josh (Josh Jeffe, another VS engineer) slapped together called "Hacker" where you could draw the waveshape. These were fed straight from the computer through the filter and VCA of a Pro-One to figure out what they might sound like in a patch. And by the way, no PPG waveforms appear inside the VS - we had access to them, but in the end our consciences got the better of us. We did steal some waveforms from the Korg DW6000, but only by looking at the harmonic drawings on the front panel and trying to imitate them in our additive synthesis program." Modulation Matrix "Cheat Sheet" This chart shows all the modulation routing available on the Evolver. This same info is available in the manual but this can be printed on a single sheet of paper as a handy refrence! Evolver Wallpaper These I created just for fun and desktop "beautification" ;) 1280 X 1024 1024 X 768 800 X 600

766 [WS001] Circuit-Bending – Initiation « Gasol
Introduction Le Circuit-Bending ou Circuitage dĂ©signe l’activitĂ© qui consiste Ă  volontairement court-circuiter un appareil Ă©lectronique (gĂ©nĂ©ralement sonore) afin de provoquer des comportements inattendus pour le dĂ©tourner de son usage d’origine. Par exemple, un jouet sonore pour enfant ou une console de jeu gĂ©nĂ©reront des sons ou des images plus ou moins alĂ©atoires et imprĂ©visibles. Ce terme Ă  Ă©tĂ© introduit par Reed Ghazala dans les annĂ©e 60 lorsqu’il court-circuita accidentellement l’un de ses instruments. Mais des mĂ©thodes similaires ont Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ©es auparavant par d’autres musiciens et ingĂ©nieurs. Cette activitĂ© peut ĂȘtre assimilĂ©e Ă  une certaine forme d’art, de part le dĂ©tournement, l’appropriation et la personnalisation de ces appareils ainsi que leurs usages lors de performances audiovisuelles. C’est l’art du court-circuit. On rencontrera souvent les termes Circuit-Bender ou Bender pour dĂ©signer la personne qui effectue ces modifications et on parlera de Bends pour toutes modifications apportĂ©es Ă  l’appareil. Attention: Ne jamais tenter ces manipulations sur des appareils alimentĂ©s par une tension supĂ©rieure Ă  12V, risque d’électrocution. Ne pas torturer des appareils trop onĂ©reux ou auxquels on tient, en effet il existe un haut risque de casse irrĂ©versible qui transformera le jouet en un joli presse papier. Un peu de thĂ©orie Le Circuitage ne demande pas de grandes connaissances en Ă©lectronique, mais quelques bases sont nĂ©cessaires Ă  l’apprĂ©hension de cette activitĂ©. Notamment la reconnaissance des divers composants Ă©lectroniques qui seront utilisĂ©s ou court-circuitĂ©s. RĂ©sistances La rĂ©sistance est surement le composant le plus rĂ©pandu. Sa principale caractĂ©ristique est d’opposer une plus ou moins grande rĂ©sistance Ă  la circulation du courant Ă©lectrique. Sa valeur (mesurĂ©e en ohms) peut ĂȘtre dĂ©terminĂ©e par un code couleur ou lue sur le boĂźtier des composants les plus rĂ©cents. PotentiomĂštres Un potentiomĂštre n’est autre qu’une rĂ©sistance ajustable. Il possĂšde 3 pattes ainsi qu’un systĂšme mĂ©canique permettant la variation de la rĂ©sistance. Photo-rĂ©sistances Une photo-rĂ©sistance est Ă©galement une rĂ©sistance dont la valeur varie en fonction de l’intensitĂ© lumineuse. On peut Ă©galement le nommer rĂ©sistance photo-dĂ©pendante (light-dependent resistor (LDR)) ou photoconducteur. Condensateurs Un condensateur est un composant Ă©lectronique ou Ă©lectrique Ă©lĂ©mentaire qui a pour propriĂ©tĂ© principale de pouvoir stocker des charges Ă©lectriques opposĂ©es sur ses armatures. Il est utilisĂ© principalement pour stabiliser une alimentation Ă©lectrique, traiter des signaux pĂ©riodiques, sĂ©parer le courant alternatif du courant continu, stocker de l’énergie. Diodes La diode est principalement utilisĂ©e comme convertisseur de courant alternatif vers du courant continu ou comme multiplicateur ou rĂ©gulateur de tension. C’est un composant polarisĂ©, ce qui signifie que le sens de branchement a une importance sur le fonctionnement du montage. Diodes Electro-Luminescentes (DEL / LED) La LED possĂšde la particularitĂ© de gĂ©nĂ©rer de la lumiĂšre lorsqu’elle est parcourue par un courant. De la mĂȘme maniĂšre que la diode, ce composant est polarisĂ©. Transistors Le transistor est le composant actif utilisĂ© principalement comme interrupteur commandĂ© ou pour l’amplification, mais aussi pour stabiliser une tension ou moduler un signal. Circuits intĂ©grĂ©s Le circuit intĂ©grĂ© (CI), aussi appelĂ© puce Ă©lectronique, est un composant Ă©lectronique reproduisant une ou plusieurs fonctions Ă©lectroniques plus ou moins complexes, intĂ©grant souvent plusieurs types de composants Ă©lectroniques de base dans un volume rĂ©duit, rendant le circuit facile Ă  mettre en Ɠuvre. Il existe une trĂšs grande variĂ©tĂ© de ces composants divisĂ©s en deux grandes catĂ©gories : analogique et numĂ©rique. Interrupteurs Un interrupteur est un dispositif permettant d’interrompre ou d’autoriser le passage d’un flux. Boutons poussoirs Le bouton poussoir est une touche tactile qui permet de faire une liaison Ă©lectrique momentanĂ©e le temps que l’on appuie dessus ou, sur certains modĂšles inversĂ©s, d’ouvrir temporairement le contact Ă©lectrique. Connecteurs Jack Format de connecteur mĂąle et femelle gĂ©nĂ©ralement utilisĂ© pour les connexions audio de types casques et micros. Le mini Jack fait 3,5 mm de diamĂštre, le jack normal fait 6,35 mm. MatĂ©riel et compĂ©tences Pour mener Ă  bien ces projets et en plus de certains composants citĂ©s ci-dessus, il faudra ĂȘtre Ă©quipĂ© du matĂ©riel basique (tournevis, fer Ă  souder, Ă©tain, pompe Ă  dessouder, cĂąblage, pinces coupantes, pinces croco, perceuse, dremel 
) De plus, il faudra un minimum de compĂ©tences en soudage, mais tout le monde se souvient des cours de technologies au collĂšge et dans tous les cas, ces compĂ©tences s’acquiĂšrent vite aprĂšs quelques essais. Il faudra simplement veiller Ă  ne pas dĂ©poser la panne du fer trop longtemps sur un composant pour ne pas l’endommager et ne pas faire baver l’étain au risque de crĂ©er un court-circuit non souhaitĂ©. Il faudra Ă©galement s’armer de patience, c’est la qualitĂ© premiĂšre et la plus haute compĂ©tence d’un Bender. En effet, un jouet nĂ©cessite gĂ©nĂ©ralement entre 4 Ă  12h pour ĂȘtre modifiĂ© (dont les 3/4 de ce temps sont consacrĂ©s Ă  la recherche des Bends). Avec l’expĂ©rience ce temps sera considĂ©rablement rĂ©duit. Beaucoup de pratique Victimes potentielles Pour dĂ©buter, l’idĂ©al est de s’attaquer Ă  des appareils peu couteux tels que des jouets sonores rĂ©cupĂ©rĂ©s dans votre cave ou lors de vide-greniers. Les plus rĂ©putĂ©s Ă©tant les jouets vintages du type DictĂ©e Magique et dĂ©rivĂ©s (Speak&Spell/Math/Learn), les insupportables Furby, les petits synthĂ©tiseurs type Casio SK-1 
 Tout ce qui possĂšde un haut-parleur, fonctionne sur piles ou en dessous de 12V. Plus particuliĂšrement les appareils fabriquĂ©s durant les annĂ©es 80/90 qui ne sont pas encore Ă©quipĂ©s de composants Ă©lectroniques sophistiquĂ©s ou de circuits entiĂšrement numĂ©riques. Les constructeurs les plus connus sont: Texas Instruments, Casio, Vtech, Coleco, Creatoy. Il est Ă©videmment possible d’élargir les domaines de recherches Ă  des appareils plus Ă©laborĂ©s mais gare Ă  l’irrĂ©versible court-circuit meurtrier qui mettra dĂ©finitivement la machine hors-service. Recherche Il faut tout d’abord dĂ©sosser votre cible pour mettre Ă  nu le circuit Ă©lectronique. Ensuite, on allume le jouet pour lui faire Ă©mettre un son et on test simplement sa rĂ©activitĂ© en posant plusieurs doigts simultanĂ©ment sur diffĂ©rents endroits du circuit. GĂ©nĂ©ralement, un effet de « pitch » se fait entendre (baisse/augmentation de la tonalitĂ©), on comprend alors que la machine est sensible au Circuitage et les choses sĂ©rieuses peuvent donc commencer (toutes les machines ne sont pas forcement sensibles au toucher, mais c’est une bonne technique d’approche). Afin de ne pas avoir Ă  mĂ©moriser tous les endroits sensibles, l’idĂ©al est de prendre une photo du circuit, de la transferer sur un ordinateur et ainsi noter pas Ă  pas Ă  l’aide d’un logiciel de dessin type MSPaint ou Photoshop tous les Bends dĂ©couverts. Certains les notent directement sur le circuit Ă  l’aide d’un stylo ou d’un feutre, mais l’encre contenant gĂ©nĂ©ralement du carbone et le carbone Ă©tant conducteur, il existe un risque de court-circuit non dĂ©sirĂ© dont on pourra difficilement se dĂ©faire. La premiĂšre et la plus simple des modifications Ă  apporter Ă  son appareil est le raccordement Ă  un ampli ou une console de mixage. Il sera alors possible d’enregistrer les sons de la machine ou de l’utiliser lors de performances live. Pour ce faire, on repĂšre gĂ©nĂ©ralement le haut-parleur et on le remplace ou on installe en parallĂšle un connecteur Jack. Dans le second cas, l’ajout d’un interrupteur pourra servir Ă  basculer entre la sortie audio ou le haut-parleur. On peut maintenant commencer Ă  parcourir mĂ©thodiquement ou au hasard le circuit Ă  l’aide d’un testeur. Le plus simple est d’utiliser des pinces croco que l’on raccordera Ă  deux petits tournevis d’horloger. On place la pointe du premier tournevis qui restera stationnaire sur un point du circuit et avec le second on parcourt diffĂ©rents autres points en Ă©coutant les changements de sons intĂ©ressants que l’on note au fur et Ă  mesure sur notre photo. On poursuit ensuite en dĂ©plaçant le premier tournevis sur un autre point et en recommençant notre parcours avec le second. On rĂ©pĂšte cette procĂ©dure jusqu’à ce que la totalitĂ© du circuit ait Ă©tĂ© parcouru ou lorsque nous estimons avoir trouvĂ© toutes les modifications souhaitĂ©es. Les Bends les plus courants sont gĂ©nĂ©ralement: la sortie audio permettant l’amplification, le volume, l’overdrive/distortion, les glitches, les boucles, le bouton reset. Dans certains cas, les Bends ne sont pas compatibles entre-eux. La machine plantera irrĂ©mĂ©diablement dĂšs lors qu’on activera plusieurs Bends simultanĂ©ment. On peut alors dĂ©cider de continuer la quĂȘte des modifications compatibles ou bien Ă©viter d’en activer plusieurs Ă  la fois. CĂąblage et placement des composants La prochaine Ă©tape est le raccordement des diffĂ©rents points du circuit trouvĂ©s prĂ©cĂ©demment. On les relie entre eux en soudant un fin cĂąble de cuivre sur chaque point. On placera ensuite, par exemple, un interrupteur entre deux de ces cĂąbles allant de paires, de maniĂšre Ă  (dĂ©s)activer notre court-circuit. Il est aussi possible dans certains cas de remplacer ou coupler l’interrupteur Ă  un potentiomĂštre ou une photo-rĂ©sistance qui appliquera une plus ou moins grande rĂ©sistance au passage du courant, attĂ©nuant ou accentuant ainsi l’effet du court-circuit (trĂšs utile pour les effets de pitch/volume/overdrive). Il est prĂ©fĂ©rable de ne pas souder le composant avant de l’avoir montĂ© sur le chĂąssis de la machine, de maniĂšre Ă  ne pas le dessouder par inadvertance lors de son placement. Utile aussi pour connaitre la bonne longueur des cĂąbles et leur cheminement et ainsi Ă©viter les surplus qui empĂȘcheraient la fermeture du boitier. Pour percer le chĂąssis, on utilisera une petite perceuse ou un Dremel. Le positionnement des composants est libre mais attention Ă  choisir un emplacement qui ne gĂȘnera ni la fermeture, ni l’ergonomie du boitier. En effet, un composant mal placĂ© et difficilement accessible pourrait compromettre la spontanĂ©itĂ© de la performance. Afin de ne pas trop endommager le chĂąssis, il est aussi possible de raccorder tous les composants sur un boitier externe qui servira de contrĂŽleur. Dans ce cas, l’utilisation d’un cĂąble nappe tel que l’on trouve dans un ordinateur peut ĂȘtre trĂšs pratique pour ne pas avoir des dizaines de fils qui sortent du chĂąssis (un cĂąble SCSI est parfait pour ce type de montage). Tests Il est maintenant l’heure de tester notre nouveau jouet !

718 Musiques - H O R S N O R M E
Dossier : OĂč trouver de la musique sur internet ? Par Ed End le samedi, mai 29 2010, 10:07 albums apprendre audio comment complet dossier efficace exhaussif fĂȘte de la musique gratuites guide illĂ©gal internet libre lĂ©gal meilleurs sites mp3 musiques oĂč trouver de la musique recherche simple son trouver tĂ©lĂ©chargement tĂ©lĂ©charger I. Pourquoi chercher de la musique sur internet ? Pour rĂ©pondre Ă  cette question on peut se poser une autre question : OĂč trouver de la musique en dehors d'internet ? A part quelques exceptions Ă  Paris, la plupart des disquaires indĂ©pendants ont disparus. Les supermarchĂ©s ont trĂšs peu de choix. Les magasins spĂ©cialisĂ©s, par exemple la Fnac ont un nombre limitĂ© de rĂ©fĂ©rences disponibles Ă  des prix pas toujours accessibles. Cependant il reste des solutions intĂ©ressantes : le marchĂ© de l'occasion, acheter les albums lors des concerts Ă  des prix plus abordables ou encore moins onĂ©reux les emprunter Ă  des mĂ©diathĂšques. Convertir en mp3 les anciens supports, k7, cd, vinyles et Ă©changer des albums numĂ©risĂ©s dont on dĂ©tient les originaux, lĂ©galement, dans le cadre de la copie privĂ©. Si malgrĂ© cela tant de personnes cherchent de la musique sur internet, c'est : a. Parce qu'il y a beaucoup plus de choix. A l'heure actuelle, par exemple, le dĂ©veloppement de la musique libre est tel qu'il est impossible de suivre l'intĂ©gralitĂ© des Ɠuvres qui sont publiĂ©es. b. Parce que le coĂ»t est quasi nul. - Soit en raison de la disparition du support, il n'y a plus de coĂ»t de diffusion, plus de coĂ»t de fabrication, juste Ă©ventuellement un coup de crĂ©ation. MalgrĂ© cela dans le domaine commercial les magasins en ligne (Itune et autres consorts) sont loin de rĂ©percuter la disparition des coups sur leurs tarifs. - Soit en raison de ce que les lobbys et le gouvernement appĂšlent piratage, pour ma part je considĂšre qu'ils font une faute d'orthographe et prĂ©fĂšre parler de partage. Un exemple flagrant de leur mauvaise foie, contrairement Ă  ce qu'a prĂ©tendu un jour un patron de la Fnac, un album n'est pas une baguette de pain, passer l'Ă©tape de crĂ©ation du premier exemplaire, il est duplicable Ă  l'infini, ni farine, ni travail supplĂ©mentaire, autrement dit, je ne connais aucune baguette de pain qui puisse nourrir toute la planĂšte. c. Parce que la dĂ©couverte est facilitĂ©e. Depuis que les majors ont pris le contrĂŽle des mĂ©dias radio et tĂ©lĂ©, Ă  part dans de rares mĂ©dias papiers spĂ©cialisĂ©s, et certains gratuits culturels, c'est trĂšs difficile de faire des dĂ©couvertes. ConcrĂštement avec un logiciel de peer to peer, on Ă©tend trĂšs rapidement la diversitĂ© des musiques que l'on apprĂ©cie. DĂ©jĂ  pour la simple raison que dans tous les genres, au-delĂ  du mainstream des majors il existe des Ɠuvres de qualitĂ©. d. Pour pouvoir essayer la musique avant de l'acheter. Une bonne façon de se prĂ©munir des singles qui pourraient permettent d'Ă©couler des albums bĂąclĂ©s.

701 How To Convince The Client That Your Design Is Perfect - Smashing Magazine
As designers who deal with clients, we all have to face one situation, no matter how difficult and uncomfortable, and that is guiding the client to accept that your design is perfect. Now, you already have the project, so this is not a matter of convincing them to pick you for the job. This is about getting them to see that your design satisfies their requirements and contains everything they want. We all have to take on this role of virtual tour guide and lead them through the project’s twists and turns, ensuring that the best interests of the client and website are served. We have to be the lighthouse, guiding the clients to shore. (Image credit) In the end, the final decision falls to the client, but there are times — and most of us have experienced them — when the client’s lack of expertise in the field affect the quality of the design. In such times, we have a responsibility to do everything in our power to convince the client that the design is perfect as it is, and that any further alteration would impair the website’s ability to communicate everything it needs to. This confrontation is not welcome by either party, but it is certainly necessary. Many designers want to avoid conflict and, as a result, cave to their clients at the slightest sign of disagreement, rather than spend time trying to convince them that they stand on the right side of the design decision. This is often a mistake and does not serve the design, which should be the paramount consideration. We owe it to our creative work to argue for whatever serves the design beyond all else, even though the client is footing the bill. We may end up having to give in to the client, but at least we tried. Below is an overview of some tips and techniques you can employ when you find yourself butting heads with a client. These approaches might work individually or in combination, but they all at least offer a launching point to help you put your best foot forward and lead the client exactly where they need to go.

428 Alain Neffe and the Home-Taped Electronic Music Revolution
Alain Neffe launched his first tape label at home in Belgium in 1981. He called it Insane Music Contact and his first installment was called Insane Music for Insane People. Thus began a nearly thirty year foray into home-made, visionary and utterly unfashionable electronic music that has hardly made anyone involved a household name. Insane Music released 55 titles in its most prolific years (1981-87). Five of these were vinyl records and the rest were cassettes tapes. Why cassettes tapes? Magnetic tape was the obvious solution to the problem facing many artists working without record contracts in those days. Cassettes could be recorded at home, produced at home, dubbed at home, and sold or traded by mail. No need for tasteless outside producers and marketing mojo—one needed only leave home to buy more tapes. Says Neffe, “I could copy the tapes on demand. Releasing an LP required that you print 500 copies and 1000 copies of the cover sleeve, and everything had to be paid up front 
 if the buyer didn’t like the music, he or she could wipe it out and record something else on it.” Mr. Neffe was not the only one out there recording, selling and trading tapes by mail. On both sides of the Atlantic, home cassette technology was permitting the release of much groundbreaking and breathlessly beautiful work, as well as some noxious and otherwise self-indulgent wanking—that coat of many colors we call the DIY (do-it-yourself) Revolution. As early as 1974, Albrecht/d. self-released a cassette entitled Amsterdam Op De Dam in Germany. In 1976, Throbbing Gristle was distributing tapes of their infamous live recordings, and in 1977, the French electro-industrial unit Die Form began releasing tapes on their own Bain Total label. 1980 saw the release of two monumental self-released cassettes, The Storm Bugs’ A Safe Substitute and Colin Potter’s The Ghost Office. In Japan, 1980 saw the release of Merzbow’s first two cassettes, Remblandt Assemblage and Fuckexercise. And in the USA, 1981 saw John Bender’s Plaster: The Prototypes, a laconic and mysterious series of tone and vocal poems. Home taping was not limited to electronic music. R. Stevie Moore, one of the elder living ancestors of the lo-fi rock aesthetic, began releasing distributing home-made tapes via the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club sometime in the 1970s. And tapes of live punk shows from the era continue to trade hands. Soon, cassettes were coming from everywhere: mysterious PO boxes in the Midwest, to which you sent a blank tape and three dollars and received the tape back with something on it. The Tellus Audio Cassette Magazine was a Fluxus-inspired subscription audio-journal dedicated to music as well as poetry and drama and other forms of audio-art. Zines like Factsheet Five and Unsound devoted entire columns to the material they received from bands on home-made cassette, and demo tapes began leaking to radio stations prior to official record release dates. It was a grassroots movement that marched in association with the self-publication of zines, comics, chapbooks, and other media. The medium had begun to become the message. Insane Music for Insane People (which eventually reached 25 volumes) was a series compiling all home-made electronic music made by artists from across the globe. By including in the liner notes the contact address for each artist featured, Neffe helped pioneer a snail-mail network for those interested in more of what they heard. Artists from all over Europe and the USA, from Japan, New Zealand, and beyond contributed over the years. One could send a few dollars to Insane Music Contact, receive tapes in the mail, write to artists involved and receive more cassettes. Insane Music Contact (now known as Insane Music) has always been a vehicle for Mr. Neffe’s own electronic music projects as well, many of which are periodically active to this day. Though he now makes liberal use of the CD format, Neffe’s artistic approach remains undiluted by years of underexposure. He expects very little acknowledgment of or remuneration for his efforts, which, for him, are emotional articulation, continued experimentation, and purity. It seems nothing but nothing could possibly catapult such heavily uncommercial sounds into the public consciousness–not even this thirty-year retrospective box-set entitled The Insane Box released (ironically, on vinyl) by the venerable Frank Maier of Vinyl-on-Demand Records, an outfit devoted to preserving the precious gems of cassette culture before the evidence disintegrates. For this retrospective (4 LPs + a 7” 45), Mr. Neffe has reached into dusty attic boxes, wherein lay unreleased (or hardly available) material by five projects of which he has been a part: BeNe GeSSeRiT, Human Flesh, Pseudo Code, I Scream and Subject. Each has a unique cerebral orientation and emotional vibe made possible by the combined efforts of invited guests; each runs the high fever of a man very much committed to a personal vision of artistic purity without virtuosity, and each is distinctly French. BeNe GeSSeRiT was not the first of Mr. Neffe’s projects to be recorded and distributed, but is, to my understanding, the genesis of his approach to music as “texts” or “photographs”, or as he puts it, “potlatch music”. On these early tracks we also detect a burgeoning interest in the endless expressive properties of the human voice, both explicitly human and as heavily-treated sound sculpture, both French and English At times, voices shout like besotted Celine parlor workers at each other from tenement windows; at other times a high-pitched female voice wails up and down like Catherine Ribeiro alone in her bathroom. In these tracks, one can also detect the half-digested influence of electro-rock luminaries Silver Apples, the avant-lashings a la Yoko Ono, and occasionally the thunder-beat of early Laibach. Primitive Casio electronics, stage whispers, delay echoes, tape loops, and a certain absurdist humor redolent of Erik Satie, neither dampen the fabric with melodrama, nor detract from the integrity of the grist, nor from the topical seriousness of the text’s subjects. BeNe GeSSeRiT is difficult music, even in the moments that risk elegy, yet it is still more accessible than some of the other Francophone avant-dada outfits of the day, such as DDAA and Étant DonnĂ©s, or Nurse with Wound in the UK. Human Flesh is decidedly more structurally cohesive and song-oriented than BeNe GeSSeRiT, and its predecessors and influences are less clear. Still there is a clear interest in the human voice, its textures and timbers when removed of sign value by backwards-masking, and the new textures that emerge when disassembled and reassembled. Even rock-oriented at times, Human Flesh chases a more delirious climax, for the hounds of the carnival are snapping at their heels as they run. This is also a project of varied angles and pursuits, sliding as it does into poetic electro-pop (the supple and Chicago-accented voice of the late Lydia Tomkiw, of Algebra Suicide, appears on two tracks), and moments of Half Japanese-style primitivism. The side-long track “Langsam” is more reminiscent of Piper-era Pink Floyd and Brainticket, as well as other Krautrock, yet is still distinctly French. These early and rare tracks are, in contrast to the more ambitious Pseudo Code and the more intimate recordings by I Scream, more oblique for being a mix-down of materials sent to Neffe from artists around the globe. The track “Sons of God?” is also notable for what is perhaps the first recorded sample of the American fire-and-brimstone preacher Ferrell Griswold, whose voice has appeared in music by Front 242, Phallus Dei, Pragha Khan, et cetera. The cassette medium, for all its benefits to individual artistic expression and culture, is for the selfsame reasons impermanent. Magnetic tape has a thirty year lifespan if properly archived, which means both that preserving their contents in other formats is important, and that paying hundreds of dollars for the original artifacts is a questionable collectors’ pursuit (nevertheless, you can watch it happen daily). With the advent of the mp3 and the efforts of Vinyl-on-Demand and other labels, Insane Music’s CD-r reissue program included, some of this exquisite material has been rescued from oblivion.

Using a Weak Password Avoid simple names or words you can find in a dictionary, even with numbers tacked on the end. Instead, mix upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. A password should have at least eight characters. One good technique is to insert numbers or symbols in the middle of a word, such as this variant on the word "houses": hO27usEs!

"What they think is nothing can actually be pretty serious," says Charles Pavelites, a supervisory special agent at the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

325 Electronic_a # 11: Jeudi 29 avril 2010
Ben Edwards est un humble artisan amoureux de l’analogique, archĂ©ologue des temps prĂ©-Ă©lectroniques. "la musique synthĂ©tique", comme on l’appelait alors. Ben collectionne les synthĂ©tiseurs et en a accumulĂ© une quantitĂ© invraisemblable. Si les noms suivants ne vous disent rien, Korg Modular, Oberheim SEM, Roland 100 M 
 souvenez-vous de Abbey Road ou de Blade Runner. C'est tout un pan de la musique pop qui fut irriguĂ© des vibrations quasi cosmiques de ces machines et c’est une Ăąme singuliĂšre et poĂ©tique que nous retrouverons ainsi ce soir. Ce que la presse en dit: « De son vrai nom Ben Edwards, Benge dĂ©veloppe depuis ses premiers pas musicaux une passion peu commune pour les synthĂ©tiseurs, passion qui l’a conduit Ă  amasser au fil du temps une collection de machines qui ferait baver d’envie bien des aficionados de la chose. ObsĂ©dĂ© par cette famille d’instruments aux possibilitĂ©s infinies et compositeur stakhanoviste si il en est, Benge passe sa vie Ă  dissĂ©quer les algorithmes abscons de chacune de ses machines qu’il connaĂźt jusqu’au plus profond de leur process Ă©lectroniques » - A dĂ©couvrir absolument « Album concept que ce Twenty Systems puisqu’il s’agit, en vingt pistes plutĂŽt courtes, de prĂ©senter vingt synthĂ©tiseurs diffĂ©rents, un par annĂ©e de 1968 Ă  1988. Dans un esprit didactique, le disque est accompagnĂ© d’un livret cartonnĂ© de 52 pages dĂ©taillant les caractĂ©ristiques de chaque synthĂ©tiseur tandis que les morceaux portent le nom de l’instrument ayant Ă©tĂ© utilisĂ© pour chacun et l’annĂ©e correspondante (utilisation unique et solitaire d’ailleurs, Ben Edwards indiquant n’avoir employĂ© aucun autre effet ou appareil en dehors de ces synthĂ©tiseurs). » - Etherreal « Avec ce disque poĂ©tique, Ă  la naĂŻvetĂ© parfois dĂ©sarmante (Yamaha CS30) mais toujours trĂšs inspirĂ©, Benge nous fait voyager Ă  travers les Ă©poques et rend un bel hommage Ă  ces machines pleines de chaleur (qui sont pour certaines de vĂ©ritables antiquitĂ©s !) et Ă  leurs gĂ©niaux crĂ©ateurs. Rarement une leçon d'histoire aura Ă©tĂ© aussi dĂ©licieuse que celle-ci. » - Pop News « La musique de Ben Edwards est en effet bien plus et bien moins qu'un impossible catalogue de sons ou une ode technopositiviste : c'est un rĂ©enchantement viscĂ©ral du son Ă©lectronique. » - Chronic’art « A brilliant contribution to the archaeology of electronic music » - Brian Eno « Indicates what a deliriously desirable thing the synthesis of sound has historically been » - The Wire « Absolutely cast iron irrefutable proof that synthesisers are better than guitars » - Vice Magazine
