Chart positions prove how average you are.
The image here shows how badly Logic Pro 7 automation accuracy (red source, bounced in blue) sucks compared to Digital Performer (bounced, re-imported & aligned, green). Having said that, DP5 was shifting bounced files back 4/44100th of a second (talking a four sample off...Read more
Hangovers do funny things to my brain. While I can barely stand up without a massive headache kicking in between the eyes, the general aches & self-inflicted pains of the night before make my mind wander off in strange directions.
I'm not going to formulate any of the following points into a full blog right now. I'm minutes away from needing another aspirin and a cup of tea. I may write this into something worth reading in the future but for now here are the voices, live & direct from inside my head:
Feel a bit daft re-posting media on my blog, but everyone else seems to be doing it so what the hell. Had a quick interview with the SCMP a while back and that piece made it into the paper last week. Plus, this past Sunday Morning Post included a pretty fair review of Rendition. The album wasn't written for everyone to enjoy all of it, so to get thumbs up for most of the tracks was cool by me.
Incidentally, this is the third time I've had a half page piece in the SCMP and the second time they've mis-quoted me as working wit...Read more
Been mailing out a stack of CDs like this every afternoon since Monday ... what is it with Australians?! The guy at the Post Office just rips off a page of HK$60 dollar air mail stamps when I walk thru the door ... "Yeah, 18 more going down under. And one for Germany today! Why not..."
Looking at the piles, I need more promo in the 'states! Tried to arrange publicity with what seemed like a pretty clued-up and tech savvy firm based in L.A. but they are totally unable to deal with the concept of a mail order only / digita...Read more
Digging through music for my Rendition DJ set at Yumla next Saturday I stumbled across this little gem of a track. Front 242 have a back catalog longer than most people's lives - not all of it good I might add - but now & again they threw down a track which really was blinding on a number of different levels. "Headhunter" not being one of them ... but I like it anyway.
It has to be noted that Front 242 probably have the largest collection of awful videos on YouTube. Is there some kind of an award for that? &q...Read more
so we finally let the puppy out of the sack ... Rendition was born early yesterday morning and sales from the site are considerably better than expected. hats off to supporters in Australia leading the way ... 71% sales were from down under today.
in addition to the cds and box sets and mp3 / flac / aif digital album sales we also made one last minute addition ... bit torrents.
yup - you read me right - if you search the three main torrent tracker sites you'll find both the mp3 and flac versions of ...Read more
Been waiting years for this to come out. For many reasons I was a big fan of the first Hellboy movie, and eventually The Golden Army gets released in a couple weeks. Can not wait.
I'm partly a fan because they made a decision to use practical effects where-ever possible, avoiding digital unless is was the only way to go for a certain shot. The vomit inducing shots of Spiderman and the cu...Read more
My early morning routine (e-mail then music blogs then more e-mails listening to music, then surf random crap linked from the blog sites) fired me into this little side story: Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein was a complete rip-off merchant. Why? The below image is one of the (150 odd) comic panels Roy bit [badly!] then sold off as his own work (inset).
And - far from being an art exp...Read more
