just read news that the Australian music festival formerly known as Parklife has been cancelled a new thing called Listen Out is taking its place, which is being officially called an "intelligent dance music" festival. the fb page says "Australia's IDM party", no less.


Promoters of the Parklife festival, Fuzzy, have cancelled the event in 2013 and will instead rebrand the huge summer lead-up festival into a new event- Listen Out.


Fuzzy, which began Parklife back in 2000, announced on their official Facebook page that the famous festival is out, to be replaced by an “intelligent dance music” event that will visit four of the five major capital cities Parklife had reached in recent years.


"It is a carefully handcrafted party, with a killer lineup of the dance music that matters and a philosophy of best, not biggest," described the organisers.




I'm cautiously optimistic but it's a bit weird labelling a festival "IDM" like this. also the promoters are being accused of stealing ideas from a similar festival called OutsideIn (see link).

all depends on the line up doesn't it. I don't really care about plagiarizing another festival name. Although southbank isn't the best venue for a thing here, and it'll prbably have all the steriod induced pumped up tradies that would have gone to parklife, filling the place with their taint.

Here's the line-up...




Nothing that even remotely resembles IDM anywhere, especially Disclosure as the headlining act.

meh. so they're just trying to piggyback on the cool-factor of an obscure genre (a contentious one, at that).

      Genuine question! The way I see it, gain is a budget, and normalizing just makes you start the game with lots of money in the bank.
      I get it, you also raise the noise floor and the resolution is diminished a bit, but is that REALLY that big of a deal? Does that signal loss really matter that much? I thought that was the whole point of having much higher bit-rate effects processing was that you just had an order of magnitude less things to give a shit as long as the levels sounded right (and of course your monitoring situation was reasonably well-calibrated).
      Is this just a pristine audio from soup-to-nuts kind of thing? Is that what everyone is shooting for these days unless you're doing some intentionally, over-the-plate lo-fi witch-house-ecco-vape-goth-rave-seinfeld thing or whatever the kids are calling it these days? 
      P.S. Not trying to pick on anyone here if we might have happened to have a germane discussion. This is one of those nagging "Am I just really stupid(*) or, is this that thing where everyone is afraid of asking the same thing" questions.
      P.P.S. Mods, feel free to merge... this was the most relevant thread I could find: https://forum.watmm.com/topic/70902-normalising-tracks 
      * Also if I am just being stupid please explain. I will not get butthurt about being stupid, I promise.

      i just listened to this in full, what in the actual fuck is this? This is like the background noise of thoughts. It is just the most abstract shyt I've ever heard. 16 minutes in and its basically one guy with a digital digeridoo and another guy with a box drum. what the fuck. actual digital jam band. literally the grateful dead but rave. what the fuck

      NAMIBIAN media report a strange muppet-like beast has been shot dead after a group stumbled across several of the creatures in dense jungle.
      Locals came across the bizarre being while they were escorting a shooting party in Namibia, local media reported.
      Witness’s state that the creature was spotted apparently foraging for food, one of the shooting party wounded it with his rifle and it escaped into the thick brush.
      The locals tracked it to a nearby lair or nest where they found three more creatures of similar size.
      The wounded creature attacked one of the shooting party and it was shot dead, the others escaped into the brush
      The body of the creature was taken back to the local camp, police later removed its corpse and a full forensics investigation is under way."
      Uh what?
