Preview of a new song from The Mobile Homes – Disappointment.
Note: This is a demo version of the song.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750): Sinfonia No. 15 from Inventions and Sinfonias, BWV 801
This piece comes from Bach’s collection of Inventions and Sinfonias (also known as Two- and Three-Part Inventions). Bach composed the set as an exercise for his keyboard students, stating that students “are shown a clear way not only to learn to play cleanly in two parts, but also, after further progress, to handle three obligate parts correctly and well; and along with this not only to obtain good inventions (ideas) but to develop the same well; above all, however, to achieve a cantabile style in playing and at the same time acquire a strong foretaste of composition.” This sinfonia is the last of the set, and is one of the more challenging. It requires great dexterity in the fingers to play its fast, flowing runs cleanly and articulately.
This synthesized rendition, along with the scrolling visualization, were generated by our MATLAB synthesizer. The timbre is a combination of three previously created sounds, as well as a new voice created specifically for this piece.
Since Laibach is due for this saturday evening I got inspired to listen to some more EBMish type music and came to think of these guys. Not a favorite act but still some nice heavy tracks.
The German EBM act Agonoize has a new album called Sieben. It’s a double disc album with a total of 19 songs, and there will be 2 versions of it available. As you can guess, the standard version just contains the album’s 2 discs, while the limited “Maximum Permissible Dose” version comes in a box set with a bonus shape-CD containing 3 remixes of their club-friendly track “Femme Fatale” and a few other goodies like a sticker and a photo card.
You can listen to the songs “Femme Fatale” and “I Against Me” on the Agonoize MySpace page. My first impression of the new tracks – it sounds pretty OK
