Bodyverse - I Could Go Lucid https://lontanoseries.bandcamp.com/album/i-could-go-lucid ‘I Could Go Lucid’ is about an instant of awareness in which I realise I could have the chance to create an astonishing reality, if only I could keep consciousness while dreaming, for more than an ephemeral moment. Lucid dreams mean to me a chance to create perfection as I feel they release the power of imagination in its whole potential. Imagination becomes matter to interact with. It’s the brain’ s virtual reality, the off limits oneiric one. As well as in dreams, also in the in musical creative process I perceive a certain amount of surreal content, and it too links with imagination and with the act of materialising ideas. For this reason I am currently experimenting through improvisation, in a journey between surrealism, expressionism and situationist drift. I try to let ideas flow, so my will subordinates to accidents and emotions. I become an explorer or a traveller with an uncertain destination. This atmosphere has resulted in a creation of six pieces in which the priority is simply to keep the integrity of the original idea itself. Nothing has been planned nor post-produced. This is involuntary music.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wn8igSeiCI Okay so this album isn't new, it was released 27 March last year. It's a pretty tight, if somewhat sparse album. It has a dark spooky vibe that nicely melds many of the sounds of recent electronic music: post-dubstep, rnb, footwork, future-garage, trap, that witch genre, minimalist dub; a sound that I wouldn't say it's anything ground-breaking, but it's very cleanly executed. The standouts for me are 'Set it Off' 'DMT' and 'Breeze' 'forest fires'. Anyhow, what I find surprising is that the full album has 1,358,840 views on youtube. I haven't found tracked the source but apparently XXYYXX called himself the head of the illuminati, lol, and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the proportionally larger amount of listeners (as opposed to most of this type of music) he has acquired, but either way I find it interesting to read all these comments from electronic music virgins who have stumbled onto this and having their minds rearranged. It's pretty awesome that stuff like this is reaching a much larger audience, don't you think?
Hello there. You may have noticed my interest in minimalist music and additive rhythm. Some of you may even remember the 8-bit cover I made of Two Pages by Philip Glass a while back. I've always been fascinated by the music of Glass, and one performance that really strikes me is Music In Twelve Parts. I have three different versions of this piece, and only after carefully studying the score can I truly appreciate its genius. So I thought, what if I applied these minimal works to a minimal sound design, rather than an orchestra? The result is an oxymoron - it flows with beauty, energy, creativity, and amazing detail - despite being founded on basic ideas of process, repetition, and simple waveforms. This is Part 12 of the performance, rewritten with that special 8-bit sound we all know and love as chiptune. Note that the traditional technique of using ridiculous arpeggios instead of chords has been abandoned - the nature of the original piece makes such an approach impossible. 22:42 21.7mb http://www.mediafire.com/?4zo3ou4jfgzepf4 Enjoy!
