New podcast: PROBES #6, curated by Chris Cutler

There's no end of things that have been laid on, tied to, screwed into or otherwise attached to alter the sound of conventional instruments. This sixth programme draws a map and explores some of the outer reaches of string and wind preparations.

In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. This sixth programme continues to explore probes into pitch through the preparation and modification of conventional instruments – looking at the many tapings, wrappings, clampings, clippings, attachments and impairments applied across the family of strings, before moving on to the less familiar territory of prepared winds. Some people get up to some pretty strange behaviour in the pursuit of unusual sounds.

      Hello watmm.
       
      I have been toiling away with making my own zine, based on electronic musical things. I was looking for zines that talked about techno / idm / noisy musical bollocks but didnt find any, so I decided to start one.
       
      I am fairly happy with how issue 1 has turned out and I have had some positive feedback thus far, but I want to get more copies out to my target audience.... probably you lot.
       
      So the first bunch of people to send me their address will get a copy, regardless of worldwide location yo! PM please and I promise not to share your address with anyone (yada yada data privacy etc...)
       
      Brief synopsis:-

       
      If you are at all interest in my project, I would consider submissions for Issue 2 (to be printed circa October 2016), especially artwork (which is my weak point) but anything else too.

      I think making a singular thread to share my music is more tidy and less intrusive.
      Here's a couple new tracks I'm somewhat proud of:

      Hello music lovers.
      Does anyone know a 2:14:00 song in this mix? I have been looking for this for quite some time.
       
      I wish you all well in this strange corona era.
      thank u

      I feel like an idiot but I can't get the Bandcamp Player Embed to work. Basically I go to the bandcamp track/album, go to "embed", choose layout, choose "wordpress" (not html), and copy and paste the shortcode into the "Bandcamp Player Embed." However, it always comes up with a 400 error code, as seen below. (Or maybe you don't see it!) What am I doing wrong?
