“The Endless River” is the name of a brand new Pink Floyd album to be released later this year. The material on this album originate from the 1993 “Division Bell” sessions when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at the Britannia Row and Astoria studios.

In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire. It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together as Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard ‘Rick’ Wright would die in 2008. The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music, using the advantages of modern studio technology to create “The Endless River”.

“The Endless River” is not surprisingly a tribute to Rick Wright. It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, “Louder Than Words” holding new lyrics by Polly Samson, arranged across 4 sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.

Release date: 10 November 2014.

ScaleGen – new iPad tool for organizing pitches into custom scales and tunings

September 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

scalegen

ScaleGen for iPad – described as ‘the ultimate tool for musicians who want to explore new ways of thinking about music.’

ScaleGen is a tool for organizing pitches into custom scales and tunings. It lets you create and audition scales within the app, and then export it as a MIDI file or to their gestural music app Gestrument.

It goes far beyond mainstream types of scales, letting you experiment with up to 24 notes per octave, use historical and experimental microtonal tuning and even scales that are different in each octave, like the overtone series.

ScaleGen – musical scales redefined

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scale…

You think you know what a scale is – think again. In ScaleGen you can do all that you would traditionally imagine when it comes to scales and pitch organisation, and then much, much more.

This is the perfect tool for experimental composers in any genre as well as for musicians who want to explore new ways of thinking about music. The educational aspects of how pitches can be organised makes ScaleGen a must have for serious music students. But the directness of the app makes the learning both fun and artistically developing.

Define or change scales in the most detailed and intricate way. Audition the scales you make from within the app or export it as a MIDI file or use our iOS app Gestrument to try them out.

This is the tool for anyone who wants to go beyond the traditional tonalities in whichever genre you choose. ScaleGen comes with predefined scales of all kinds – from the traditional Western scales and early music scales to Asian scales from India, Indonesia and elsewhere.

The Beatles “Ticket To Ride” cover – a duet by I Speak Machine’s Tara Busch and the ARP 2600

September 21, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Sneak Preview for our show at Southbanks Centre, Sunday September 21st!

Deep in the Welsh countryside, there stands The Screeching Barn (aptly named for the owls nearby) , where this was filmed! I’ve been working in this loft for the past 9 months, eerie, bizarre, isolated & quite lovely.

On September 21st, I Speak Machine – the film/music collective consisting of Tara Busch & Maf Lewis will be previewing 3 sci-fi horror short films at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room – and possibly playing this little number as well!

Buy tickets here: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/what…

The beautiful machine accompanying me here is the wonderful ARP 2600. I fell upon covering song this one day when I was getting my head around this glorious beast…and thought it would be quite romantic to do a “duet” with him. This, along with all the other gear I will be playing for this show was lent to me by Dave Spiers & Chris Macleod at G Force Software – gforcesoftware.com .

Hope to see you at the show…and perhaps you’ll request this? x
