Braving the Black Sea

2009-02-13

Re–blog from Soundscaping.

A review of Christian Fennesz’s album Black Sea, released 2008 on Touch, writter by Trym Asserson.

This was probably my favorite album of last year. I keep coming back to the highly textural piece Lullaby, it’s beautiful. I had the pleasure of attending Art’s Birthday earlier this year where Fennesz played it live. What a marvelous experience that was!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out. I assure you, it’s time well invested.

Future Grooves: Breeding Beats Like DNA, Lemur + Ableton Live + Max 5

Re–blog from Create Digital Music.

Intuitive musical interfaces are hard to come by today. Most of them are modeled on old stereotypes and honestly doesn’t add much to our arsenal. Mikael Björk’s “dynamic” sequencer is something else. I enjoyed both videos, nice to see it used in two radically different environments. Good work Mikael, keep it up!

Re–blog from the Swedish daily newspaper DN. Read the post in English via Google Translate.

This is a great initiative. I’m not that fond of classical music and seldom listen to it, even though I spend quite some time listening to contemporary art music. This way I can both listen to classical music and watch it being performed without spending money on it. Hopefully I’ll get hooked and pay it back by visiting more live performances.

The link posted on DN is broken. Follow this link to visit YouTube Symphony. And be sure to watch this beautiful Chinese music version of Tan Dun’s Erotica performed by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra.

What I would give up to visit that exhibition! Thank you very much Marc for sharing this with the rest of us!
