Please Turn Over

Hi, I've got a new blog and it has pretty much the same ingredients as this one, except under my real name rather than "Cylob". So I will stop posting here for the time being, and possibly forever. I don't want to make such a division between doing music stuff and visuals or coding any more. I've worked on a couple of arty projects recently, and would like to pursue that as much as anything else. The latest post there is about my performance tonight and tomorrow, which is not what you might expect - check it out!

Don't you love summer-time in Berlin? Yes, we do, too. Especially when we can share a cold one with our friends and listen to great music while sitting by the river-side... And this is what the next DENSEHALL is all about! Early enough to catch some sun, but late enough to have a few tasty drinks and party a bit with our great guests! This time we invited some of UK experimental musicians. Rudi Zygadlo, who is constantly exploring the overlapping borders of pop and dubstep, the legendary Cylob, one of the leading pioneers of post-rave electronica and DJ P45, a fresh young producer and DJ straight from London! But thats not all: MFO, one of Berlin's leading visual artist collectives, will be seducing your eyes throughout the night with their elaborated visual compositions. Supporting are your favourite bassline scoundrels, Disscoxx and Jade Monkey.

The LoMus is a prize for open-source music software that is awarded every couple of years by the Association Française d’Informatique Musicale. This year I entered a program of mine called Particularity, and am happy to report it has won joint first prize. You can download it from here - a new blog under my actual name for the purposes of dropping bits of code from time to time.

EDIT 11 May 2010
I got my pack of tapes last week and they look nice, as in the picture above, although due to a mix-up at the plant, they are coloured "opaque gold" instead of the originally intended "gold." Also, when I tried to play one, my tape player took that very moment to break down! Catastrophic indeed.

Ready to rock Liege

Hey, just in case you are coming to the party tonight in Liege and were wondering if I'd make it over, what with all the volcano chaos, which is probably decimating the European party scene this weekend... yes I am here! I had to take the bus instead of the plane. See you tonight!
