A Duet for Leaves & Turntable

May 23, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , , , , ,

Composer and sound artist Diego Stocco released a clip featuring his experiments with a new turntable and a few freshly gathered leaves. More specifically all bass, kick and snare sounds heard in the video were made by alternating the leaf type, angle, pressure as it was applied against the turntable. Amazing isn’t it? (via #vinyloftheday)

Recently I bought a turntable to use it for an experiment, but that didn’t turn out as I was expecting.
Then, I noticed the equally spaced ridges on the plate and got an idea for something else.
For about an hour I recorded short musical phrases by rubbing leaves against the turntable (the type of leaf, angle, pressure and fold determined the sound), then I combined the different takes together. Every element comes from those recordings, including the bass, kick and snare sounds (shaped with EQ, compression and resonators).
If you’d like to see more of my musical projects based on trees and other natural ingredients here’s “Music from a Tree” bit.ly/9hRhB2 and “Music from Nature” bit.ly/ID6Vow Enjoy!

So, I was listening to Greg Cerrone’s WoaWoa BeatPort chart this morning while preparing my first cup of coffee for the day, and I actually had to put the coffee down and bust a move in the middle of my kitchen. I’m not even kidding. It’s a rare sight to see a sleepy headed, coffee deprived person dance their ass off in their pajamas at six in the morning. BUT THIS CHART IS THAT GOOD, Y’ALL. It got me amped. In support of his very recent release of “WoaWoa”, Greg Cerrone has given us a BeatPort chart that is overflowing with hyperactive tracks guaranteed to make your boring work/school day go by like nine thousand times faster. Featuring SHOWTEK, JOHN DAHLBACK, STEVE AOKI, ALESSO, ALBIN MEYERS and a handful of brilliantly chosen other talented producers, Greg Cerrone’s WoaWoa BeatPort chart is basically the equivalent of an adrenaline shot to your face. Go get it. Seriously.

Teaser Time: The Partysquad & The Death Set ft. Diplo – P.O.V. 2.0

May 23, 2013 Nikki Music Tags: , , ,

POV2.0 artworkTake a dash of funk, a spoonful of electro, two cups of dub, and pound of dance. Mix it all together. Chill it out. Sprinkle with Diplo. Serves a billion. Now, prepare yourself for the tasty and groundbreaking release of “P.O.V 2.0”, the follow up release of the original “P.O.V” by The Death Set. With “P.O.V 2.0”, a mastermind reworking has been produced by Diplo and The Partysquad, and it is just a whole new level of gritty/sexy/delicious fun. Described as “a punk, electro banger”, this track has something that will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys good music in all its various incarnations. Put together so flawlessly, “P.O.V. 2.0” is a work of art that will make you dust off your mirror and brush up on your twerkin’ skills, or (in my case) just dance like a total maniac because when music is this good, who cares about dance moves. Plug in, turn it up, and get down on this anthem of epic proportions.

Following the debut release of his EP “Rumble”, Garmiani has meticulously put together a BeatPort chart that will make you want to send him fan mail requesting he come arrange your music library into something equally as brilliant as his chart. Featuring two slammin’ tracks off his new EP, along with the newest music from Steve Aoki, Felix Cartal, Greg Cerrone and more, the Rumble Chart is preparing us for the songs we’ll be hearing all summer so that by the time you get to (enter favorite festival name), you’ll know every in and out of every badass track like the back of your own hand. Or better, because there are more important things to do than study the backs of your own hands. You get the point! Rumble Chart is a compact little party for your ears, the host of this party is Garmiani, and it’s all under the roof of Dim Mak Records.
