Eigenharp, i think someone in the cantina played this...



Check out the eigenharp, a pretty neat usb controller that features a bunch of buttons, some touch strips, and a breath controller. Too bad it looks to only use proprietary software. But its still in alpha release so maybe they will open it up to some other more common software. Either way maybe those middle school oboe lessons weren't a complete waste.

All that button mashing and lost quarters can be some good use...


This DIY controller features 16 arcade style buttons and LEDs to create a nice little MIDI contoller. I say you should mic it too, and have a sweet clicky click click solo of the buttons. Next gen from these guys will add 2 little joysticks. DjTechTools

Mustaches!

I saw this product ($7), which I find quite amusing....



And it reminded me of one of the best music videos of all time, the Soft Pink Truth - Promofunk.

Speaking piano

Some Austrians using computers and a real piano make analog synthesized speech. Basically they have an actuator over every key on a piano, and they figured out how to use a computer to control the set up such that a series of keys pressed together in certain ways creates speech. The voice kind of scares me, but the choice of a little boy would do that.

Novation grid controller, yet another monome clone




Novation is shipping in the beginning of November their version of the monome. Whats nice about it is that its designed with Abelton's Live in mind.

Korg microSAMPLER


The Korg microSAMPLER is almost awesome. Its got a bunch of great sampler features, and I do like the keyboard and that It can run for a few hours on half a dozen AA batteries. But what sucks is that there's no vocoder, suprising since it has elements of the KAOSS pad, and a built in mic like the venerable microKORG. Retail around $700.

In other news...squirrels are cute


This picture makes me laugh, from Nat. Geo website

My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intriqued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot!

Humanthesizer

Take a bunch of hot chicks, some smart guys from the Royal College of Art over in Britain, add in a relatively egotistical dance musician, and you get a synthesizer triggered by humans, not in your normal way. Watch the video for more.

Check out the hilarious blog Snacks and Shit, a blog dedicated to the ridiculous lyrics of hip hop and rap songs. They take lyrics, and interpret them literally, hilarity ensues.

"No room service just snacks and shit."
- Jay-Z, Hey Papi

Honestly, this sounds more like something my dad would say. "Remember, no ordering room service. It's too expensive. Plus, I brought snacks."

Sonic Charge Synplant

Grow

Synplant is a software synthesizer with a genetic approach to sound creation. Instead of creating patches the conventional way by turning dials and knobs, Synplant lets you explore a world of organic sounds by planting seeds that grow into synth patches.

Mutate

Once you are ready to get your hands dirty and dig deeper into the anatomy of Synplant you will have the option to crack open your sound seeds and modify their underlying genetic code.

Create

The purpose of this product is to move focus away from the sometimes intricate and difficult process of sound synthesis and instead let you develop sounds by simply using your ears. You will find that creating synth patches with Synplant will be as easy as listening and deciding what you like and then having the sounds evolve in the directions you desire.

Although Synplant is exceedingly easy to use, whatever you do, do not let its relative simplicity fool you. Beneath its straightforward and playful interface you will find a versatile synthesizer of the utmost quality with lots of character.

Telefon Tel Aviv coming to LA, Sept 25

Joshua Eustis, the remaining half of Telefon, and Fredo Nogueira will be joining forces to tour around the U.S. They already toured Europe in late Spring, now they're coming here, so show some support.

They're playing at Spaceland. I expect this show to sell out. Tickets are *NOT* on sale yet, but I will let you know immediately when they are.

A little note from Joshua - apparently the Medical Examiner ruled inconclusively, meaning "there was not enough evidence to indicate" that it was suicide. "It very well could've been an accident and that's what the Medical Examiner thinks at this time."

Update: Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon (Sat, July 18th). [Link]

Akai's answer to the Korg Nano



Disappointed with the Korg Nano's keyboard? Well Akai just released an answer called the LPK25 (ooooh yeah sexxy name scheme) additionally they have the LPD8 which features 8 pads and 8 knobs. Slightly bigger than the Nano, but still pretty small, these might have better performance. We won't know till reviews start hitting the world.

CHEESE CURRY!!!

Little Boots



You might remember the spectacular cover of Hot Chip's Ready for the Floor that Jasmin posted like a year ago. Back then the video had a few hits and little boots had even fewer videos. Well whoever said this internet thing can't start a music career was wrong. After seeing some of her videos online a TV show in the UK brought her on to perform, now shes got a record out. And had an entire episode of Last Call with Carson Daly last night dedicated to her, apparently the UK media is calling her the savior of Pop music, basically shes destined to be a hit, and its hot when she says "tenori-on".

So does the cataBlog have what it takes to make stars? You should go buy some music and try.

I know the jimmy fallon show in general sucks....


One of the benefits of Jimmy Fallon taking over Conan's old show is that he managed to convince The Roots to be his band. I honestly watch to see who the musical guest is and if they are playing with The Roots, and to fill the commercial breaks of Craig Ferguson. Anyways, on Friday Erykah Badu sat in with the band to do Michael Jackson covers, before taping they recorded cover of I Wanna Be Where You Are. ?uestlove shared up the link via twitter, and I share it here with you, its pretty great.

How'd he do it?

We all know that Michael Jackson was a beast. One of the tricks he had up his sleve was the smooth criminal move, when he and other dancers would lean past 45 degrees and not fall over. I remember as a kid trying and falling a few times, and watching the videos and looking for lines or some way they would hold them up. Then seeing it done live I couldn't believe it could be done in a concert. If you watch this video you can see a clue as to how its done if you watch the foot of the guy on the right (if you dont want to sit through the awesomeness fast forward to 3:50ish).



If you want to see how its done click here to read how its done, unless you want to keep the illusion alive, its pretty ingenious.

International Dance Party




International Dance Party is a pretty badass project. What starts off as looking like your run of the mill black roadcase has a few sensors in it. And as you start to dance near it, it opens up and plays dance music. According to how much you dance the music changes and morphs according to what you do. Pretty sweet if you ask me, check out the website for more info.

Harmonic 313 is releasing a new record on Warp, check out this pretty awesome remix track with a pretty awesome video. From Sixty40 who made the video:

"The video for Battlestar is shot stereoscopically, flicking between each eye's view every frame. It tells the story of a deceivingly small binocular spaceship that comes to earth to decimate an unsuspecting b-boy in order to reproduce and conquer the universe."

Check out this really neat project by Kutiman.

What they did is they made an entire album out of clips sourced from the youtube. Its a pretty neat visual of all these clips that singularly are pretty lame, but together they work well. I particularly like track 1, mostly because it features my boy purdie and a thermin solo by a man with a mullet. But they are all pretty good.

Need a new disc for your Optigan?

A couple of guys who have a passion for the Optigan have figured out how to produce their own replacement disc for the unique synthesizer.

If you don't know what the optigan is, basically Mattel (yes the barbie people) designed a method of using cellulose sheets that optically have the sounds "programmed" into them, instead of using chips, use x-ray sheets. Pretty novel, very unique, pretty much failed because chips got faster and easier to program.

Anyways, check out the blog, they are offering a pre-order of the discs for $93. Here's the video they posted so you can see one of these machines of musical history up and running.
