Flying Lotus - Alternate Cosmogramma Takes

Recommended Posts

Nice one, thanks for the heads up. I like the fact that he's put this up in this way, he could easily have cashed in on Cosmogramma and just released these commercially like the LA EPs. Might have been nice to make them available to, say, bleep buyers more easily though. Bit of a ballache if you don't have a webcam.

The 6 i got are pretty much the same as the album ones, a bit disappointing.

 

How do yo get the other 3? Using the pdf?

Ah bollocks I forgot to do this when I got home yesterday.

 

I bought the vinyl as well but I don't have the restraint to leave it sealed, I always want to take it out and hold it and see all the interior artwork and such, even though I don't have a deck set up at the moment. Anyway couldn't you use this webcam thing without taking off the plastic wrap?

 

No. You have to show the label of side c to the webcam, for all i know...

OK, I got access to my dad's laptop with a webcam... I got the first 6 from the CD, then track 9 from the PDFs (in order, 1-2-3)... how do we get track 7 or 8?? I tried other orders of the PDF pages but no go :(

I tried just about every combination for order of pages for the PDF I have... no extra tracks. I'm thinking maybe the vinyl & digital download PDF yield different puzzle PDFs?? I don't know... but I really want to fill in those holes now!

I tried it with the CD for waaay too long on 3 different PC's with webcams. When it FINALLY worked, firefox blocked the pop-up :facepalm:

 

Now I got the 9 tracks from somewhere else. I was expecting better technology than this.

Read elsewhere online how to get track 7... you need to use the cover artwork for the Alt Takes tracks themselves.

I've got the vinyl and a webcam and printer but I just haven't bothered to do it waaaaah. I don't really like the album and I probably won't notice anything different in these alternate versions.

So... tracks 7, 8, and 9 come from using the puddle PDFs... brilliant idea, but quite a headfuck as I don't have a printer.

So I downloaded 1-6 via the somewhat clever but ultimately pain-in-the-ass webcam procedure. Not one to be arsed going through the process of again, never mind printing shit, proceeded to d/l a rar of all 9 via teh interwebz. Strangely, tracks 1-6 from the website are 320kbps iTunes mp3s, yet all 9 tracks in the rar are some sketchy lame alpha VBR, bizarre bitrates (318 kbps :wtf: ), sample rates at 44khz for some and 48 for others... probably a transcode, though I suppose this is what to expect given the source :cisfor:

 

Would love to know how to get all 3 remaining tracks (seems like there's only confirmed methods for 2 at the moment) at which point I might be arsed to break out the printer...

if 1-6 were amazing, I'd try hard to get 7-9.

 

seems not worth the effort.

 

 

the album is still killer though.

Fuuuu

 

Was so frustrated with my webcam last night, sat there for what felt like an eternity waving my cd at my laptop screen. My girlfriend came home from work and was all like "what the fuuu you up to and shit"

 

All in vain - nothing. The funny line scanning thing came across the screen a couple of times but didnt do much else. Not even a pop up, tried different lighting, angled the cd, etc jeeeeeeez

I eventually got all the tracks (after reading how to online)... A few are good, but as a whole... nothing special. Just nice to have since they're free :)
