Add ImageFolktek Drumscape

The Folktek Drumscape is yet another dystopian sound generator brought to you from the gentlemen at Folktek. These artists continue to evolve and produce some of the most beautiful and uncompromising instrument/art objects currently available. I find the Drumscape to be one of their best, capable of a vast array of sounds from the lyrical to the abrasive. Housed in an antique wooden box it is a thought-provoking mix of the high-tech and seemingly luddite antique patina of history's ravaging hands. Beautiful sound and vision!


Stylophone Drumbeat
The Stylophone Drumbeat was a Christmas present with the potential to produce a lo-fi electronic din. Add a number of FX pedals and let the cacophony begin!...shades of early Cabaret Voltaire's decidedly leanly abrasive beats!

In an age of enforced incuriousity, regional cultural homogeniety, and i-pod "listening," I've generated a suggested listening list for the coming year. These choices represent everything from left-leaning neo-folk and highly influencial electronica to under the radar experimentalism. Hunt these down and REJECT MONOCULTURE!

SyMptoms-Mordant Music
The Catalogue-Kraftwerk
OYC25-O Yuki Conjugate
Black Sheep-Julian Cope
The Third Mind Movements-Throbbing Gristle
The Drive-Pixel
Music For Fruit-Bruce Gilbert
Hymnen- Karlheinz Stockhausen
Class Insecta-Ikue Mori
The Black Series(1-12) from the Vortex Vault-Andrew Lilies

A piece of sound manipulation utilizing a number of synths/sound generators that lumbers along slowly in the process of becoming...A work of pure serendipity in the Cageian sense enngaging pure sensation, and the "beauty" of smoothness versus the human affirmation of the rough...ALL improvised!!!

Compelling new video by the brother project to ether^ra, Kegel... a kind of diptych comprised of two distinct entities, layers of sequenced sonic detrius and aleatoric frequency paint dabs.


More noises using the ThinkGeek Bliptronic 5000. What french movie provided the voice-over sample?

"When the mode of music changes, the walls of the city shake."

In an era of enforced incuriosity, cultural homogeniety, and the uncommited relationship of the i-pod, who is truly listening?
