Vortrack + Fracture popped up in my account, even though I didn't order the full package, so I'm assuming all preorders received it.

no fracture remix track for me ?

“Be Up A Hello is a phrase that was used in my circle of friends when we were teenagers growing up in Essex but in particular it reminds me of a very good friend called Chris Marshall, who very sadly

never forget

Detroit people mover into Vortrack is a great play. Wasn't so fussed on Vortrack but like how they play together. Light into dark. Schizophrenia vibes. Somehow well 90s.

Does he make through composed continuous midi based tracks or edit like hell? Curious

I think it's just MIDI. Which would be pretty impressive, a lot of the synth programming sounds like live instrumentation, plus all the stuttery 909 edits and similar things. It's a very dense record, took me a few listens to get a proper feel for it, but I'm really loving it. Sounds like a mix between Damogen and Big Loada.

Yea dense. Very instrumentation. Basically a musician and not someone editing the shit out of sounds. He's transcended and become mr free jazz idm. 

First two tracks are my favorite. Really nice emo chords.

His 909 is on every track on the record, except those without drums, but he still tried to squeeze out novel sounds: getting a liquid effect by using a midi process that sent dense streams of information to the instrument, closely packed triggers varying in velocity and frequency. “You get these big oceans of sound that pulsate. There are moments when the 909 becomes more like a synth.”

 

This sounds so fucking good aaaaaaaaa. Waiting til after marriage though :wub: two weeks

Good interview though, in the sense that tom calls out the interviewers assertions when theyre a bit daft, but genuinely engages with the good questions, especially towards the end of it

Why anyone would say "magnus opus" is beyond me.

Spoiler

It's "magnus opum", dammit!

writers who construct needlessly confusing sentences like this below are the only people who say shit like 'magnum opus'

As Squarepusher, the UK artist, a product of Chelmford, Essex—a county in southeast England where Jenkinson was an in demand bassist before his obsession with acid house and hardcore began—signed to Warp in 1997, where he’s since been a staple.

also got the name of the organ album wrong. fuckin dingus writers :cisfor:

King shit really. Not a surprise that he says he had to do information "piece by piece" either since his level of musical detail will likely be studied for ages. Go Plastic is 19 years old and I still can't get my head around it.

      Keith Fullerton Whitman does a phone interview with Squarepusher circa 2001:

    • By pizza
      THE REFERENDUM ON THE UK'S MEMBERSHIP OF THE EU HAS HAD APPALLING CONSEQUENCES. IT HAS AMPLIFIED MANY DIVISIONS IN SOCIETY AND IN PARTICULAR HAS HELPED TO RE-ESTABLISH XENOPHOBIA AS LEGITIMATE AND ACCEPTABLE. WITNESSING THIS AGAINST THE GLOBAL BACKDROP OF A RESURGENCE OF THE FAR-RIGHT, IT'S ESSENTIAL THAT THOSE WHO FIND THESE DEVELOPMENTS UNACCEPTABLE MAKE THEIR THOUGHTS KNOWN AND TAKE ACTION.

      THIS PIECE OF MUSIC WAS WRITTEN IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE REFERENDUM AND I PRESENT IT AS THE BASIS OF AN INTERNATIONALIST COLLABORATION WITH SOUND MAKERS IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT KIND OF MUSIC THEY MAKE, WHERE THEY LIVE, THEIR BACKGROUND, THEIR AGE - ALL ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE. IT IS NOT OFFERED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL ACTION BUT AS A COMPLEMENT TO IT. I PUT IT FORWARD IN DEFIANCE OF THE BIGOTRY THREATENING THE FRAGILE CONNECTIONS THAT EXIST BETWEEN US ALL. I HOPE IT WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REAFFIRM SOME OF THOSE CONNECTIONS AMIDST A VERY DISTURBING SITUATION.

      I HAVE PROVIDED A FINISHED MIXDOWN OF THE PIECE AND AUDIO STEMS OF THE CONSTITUENT INSTRUMENTAL PARTS. ALSO AVAILABLE ARE SCORES AND A MIDI FILE REPRESENTING THE NOTE TO NOTE INFORMATION. TAKE THE PARTS AND USE THEM HOWEVER YOU LIKE. IT COULD BE SUBTLY REMIXED OR REWORKED BEYOND RECOGNITION. CHANGE THE INSTRUMENTATION, THE KEY, THE ORDER OF NOTES, THE NOTES THEMSELVES - IT IS ABSOLUTELY OPEN. THE ONLY STIPULATION IS THIS: IF YOU WANT YOUR PIECE TO BE LISTED ON THIS SITE THEN IT MUST HAVE THE TITLE "MIDI SANS FRONTIÈRES". YOU ARE WELCOME NOT TO USE THAT TITLE FOR WHATEVER YOU DO BUT THAT MEANS WE CAN'T HOST YOUR PIECE.
