Absynth version of Aphex Twin’s “Rhubarb”

May 29, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

ABSYNTH 5 is an exceptional synthesizer with unique sonic potential and 1,800 preset sounds. Its speciality is a limitless spectrum of unusual, evolving sounds created using the powerful, hybrid synthesis architecture and sophisticated modulation and effect system – resulting in sounds far removed from the everyday. What’s more ABSYNTH 5 is not just a synthesizer, but a powerful effect plug-in for treating audio tracks using the unique ABSYNTH 5 effects bank.

ABSYNTH 5 is unrivalled as a tool for creating unique sounds. The hybrid architecture features three oscillator channels and a semi-modular signal flow combined with diverse sound generating methods such as subtractive synthesis, FM, wave-table, granular sampling, and sampling with wave-morphing, filters, modulators and effects. In addition, a uniquely flexible envelope control with 68-stage envelopes allows for sounds to be subtly or radically animated. From softly undulating pads to aggressive rhythmic synth attacks – everything is possible with ABSYNTH 5.

In this video:

My Absynth version of Aphex Twin’s “Rhubarb ” from Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2.

Aphex Twin to headline Bloc 2011

December 25, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

News has been released as to the headline act for Bloc 2011, and it is none other than the Braindance master, Aphex Twin. Aphex Twin last played Bloc 2009, which featured, as part of an incredible show, a mysterious loudspeaker dancer. Aphex Twin sets are known to be special, so many will wait with anticipation for this one.

Apart for the headliner, Bloc near Bristol, UK, continues to show its development into the country’s premier electronic music festival with an already impressive early line-up – playing across the 11-13 March will include such acts as: LFO, Moderat, Speedy J, Dopplereffekt, Daedelus, Jimmy Edgar and B12 as the cream of what is still a largely unknown pie.

More information on lineup, tickets and all things Bloc related is available at the new Bloc website.

Karin from the Knife goes solo

October 27, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment 

I sure hope this is just a side project and that the awesome collaboration between the two siblings aint over for good. Anyhow, Miss Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife send out this message on a couple of news sites telling us about the newly posted laidback and minimalistic piece “If I Had a Heart” with her solo project Fever Ray on MySpace. The debut album is scheduled for early 2009. Amongst the influences mentioned we find “Miami Vice”, Aphex Twin, David Lynch and Björk.

And for old time sake a nice Knife video:

Don´t miss out on Clark's new album Turning Dragon

February 27, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment

Clark has released a new album on Warp Records entitled Turning Dragon. I have looked forward to this album for some time after listened to his previous release, Throttle Promoter EP. Clark is definately one of the most refreshing artists on Warp, he has a very innovative but still classic UK electronic sound. Hard, deep, continuously evolving and gritty tracks, aimed at contorting your body on the dance floor or just contorting your brain. This is an album that you could almost call techno, but techno with the a.d.d. detail pushed as far as it can go.
