The MusicRoom – Rhythm and Dance

Having to discovered that the world of rhythm and dance music have been at the underground scene in UK and to see that more of whom great producers and great production sounds are not only as busy as much to having to travel and play on tour. Here is a few reflections I recently encountered in the #musicroom @potatoheadhk

I like to share these tracks that have change my views on the dance music being a producer of experimental beats and ambient, the world of music producers are very much crossing all lines of discipline to arrive in a new city or another island that sending us this sentimental gift of soulful, balearic electronic sound.

Hong Kong isn’t obvious to be a destination from some of these avantgarde if you like check out what reason you think otherwise.

I was lucky to have meet with both of these masterminds. And present you their tracks I liked the most.

First two tracks are by #PeteHerbert #londonbali #passmeby

The tracks got me in to a memory swirling thru hipnotic afro drums was the last track thoughtfully played for only those intimately stayed until the very end of his set, in a low-key professional way the sound come thru from the JBL4355 #musicroom #JorgeMontiel

One of the better nights in Hong Kong dance music in my personal journey thru sound.

London Modular

Definitely, this has been on my mind building a wall of modular(wall of sound, And perhaps understand how analog sound work)

An analog recordings in music in ways to offer for sound arts And is continuing to offer influence in music including the electronic music.

As a producer to choose between Digital vs Analogue. In sound design and sound production. Computer music is the new field of studies, and we must file footed, I’m walking this in a  stride and respectable manner. Whenever you see how modular sound can be understand us or we as a further away functionalist to keep explaining how it is make…, for programmers and electronic Das musicians.

Portamento – For Synthesizers

Garcia's new treatise on the art of singing

In music, portamento (plural: portamenti, from Italian: portamento, meaning “carriage” or “carrying”) is a pitch sliding from one note to another. [wikipedia]

For use with polyphonic instruments and effective as a function to switch between mono/poly with portamento on your instruments like synthesizer. Interestingly, there are almost a magazine for everything and anything, looking back in the history of design of synthesizer and keyboards. The more you understand the collection of type of style and instruments available, or perhaps understand Moore’s law  to begin with in computer science. There is a lot more to offer your knowledge of music production process and computer music production generally. From example the Japanese company Korg first building of this Donca_matic DA-20  and others more modern and monsterious machine Korg (PS)UVS-3200 KORG_Donca_Matic_DA-20_(1963)

The term originated from the Italian expression “portamento della voce” (carriage of the voice), denoting from the beginning of the 17th century its use in vocal performances….[]

Some colloquial equivalents are slide, sweep (referring to the ‘discrete glissando’ effects on guitar & harp respectively), bend, smear, rip (for a loud, violent gliss to the beginning of a note)…[]

A synthesizer (often abbreviated as synth, also spelled synthesiser)

Synthesizers use various methods to generate electronic signals (sounds). Among the most popular waveform synthesis techniques are subtractive synthesis, additive synthesis, wavetable synthesis, frequency modulation synthesis, phase distortion synthesis, physical modeling synthesis and sample-based synthesis. Other less common synthesis types (see #Sound synthesis) include subharmonic synthesis, a form of additive synthesis via subharmonics (used by mixture trautonium), and granular synthesis, sample-based synthesis based on grains of sound, generally resulting in soundscapes or clouds.

What I generally find time in producing is not just playing music in my studio or trying to sell records or dj mixing, but understanding this genre of production knowledge is extremely difficult to understand why everything sound the same. And created my record label NLS Records.

screen-1496Reinforcing the idea of conceptual sound  and don’t just project what it is that you want.

There are just no time to chase for tech to trade for a living instead of gravity.

He is not in this game of chance but knowing that there are matters that is more interesting than the string of time and whatever meaning you’ve got it is a reality and metaphor.

Elusive – Textures

r-8612897-1465137003-4335

Brimming with offbeat beauty, Elusive’s new album Textures features a unique electronic warmth that is created with an infinity of unusual sounds. Dissected vocals and the crackle of lo-fi static permeate the release with layers of soul, a showcase for Elusive’s artful, abundant and multi-layered approach to production. With over 20 releases in his collection since the ‘90s, Elusive has personified instrumental music culture in California for two decades now. Textures comes at a creative spurt in his career and has a breakthrough sound from beginning to end.

 

released February 26, 2016

From the producer’s choice, this last year release from Alpha Pup a Los Angeles based label with hundreds of releases have really made my grade of finding that unique off-beat arrangement that I nearly experienced an anxiety lathegicism. But once you started to listen to the quality of vinyl recordings, you will notice there are sight difference between digitalism and analogue format in hybrids. Like the bridge of hydro in the 90’s when the compositions is all about experimental sound and LA beat’s scene is although a bit of an hidden gem. It is still alive and kicking, and very much looking forward to watch the live set of Elusive, and even listening to the dj set somewhere in downtown L.A.. Just keep an eye out for this artist if you are in California or at an ACE Hotel downtown.

A Documentary about Modular Synthesizer (EMS)

Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.
