Next from the synth gook series, truly a gold piece.
Sci-fi, horror movies or Beach boys, what they’ll be without Theremin?
Theremin is a first synthesizer ever, built by a Russian inventor Leon guess who… Theremin . Thou first synthesizer there is nothing of that kind since now. Almost 100 years pass and the Theremin is still unique rare instrument.
I’m a Theremin lover, just like many others bewitched by its simplicity that makes the instrument so hard to be played in the western scale, but impressively creative in many other ways. There are only few people in the world who are able to master Theremin. Luckily one of them lives nearby Prague, in Vienna. Pamelia Kurstin is one of the best Theremin player in the whole rounded world. She is able masters it in the orchestral heights and still open minded to play noise gigs of any sort. She is actually virtuous noizer :)
Thanks to many circumstances she’ll have a week long Theremin workshop where she will teach Theremin. Workshop is worthy for absolute beginners as well as absolute mad virtuosos who would like to be the best Theremin players of all.

What is important on a sound is not it’s uniqueness, but that it is something deeply known. Something that is part of your experience already. Something that has been inside of you the whole time, only this time it is closer to the water table so you can “see” it. It is like a fish in the ocean, You might not see it your whole life, buts it inevitably part of the ocean.
The “Touch the sound” documentary is just about that. About a sound we carry within our selves. It is definitely something you have to hear.
I thought about this couple years already….
I just love what people do with their boxes, I can watch the knobs rotationg from site to side for hours. So I have decided put the best pieces in the row, in the playlist :) Starting Now!
The history is going in the circle over and over again.
Once you go left, then right, then left then right, this time left.
I’m not saying left is wrong way, but this time DPRDL PDČ again FCK KSČ.
I dropped acidentaly in the book store where I found a pretty thick and heavy book “The rest is noise“. It took some time till I pick the book in my heand turn aside a bike for a while and started to read. I must say, it is interesting to go through the sound history the way the book offers.. though it is hard to .. impossible to “visualize” the sound that you read about.. still it has a big inpact on the way I started to think of sound and listen to it.
Those who don’t want to wait till the book arrives, check the sound patterns on Alexe’s site http://www.therestisnoise.com

Another bunch of weirdos, The Kyklos Galaktikos. This group is a theatre-gallery based group who spend most of their time under the stage light or radiated by latest and biggest apple monitors. Personally I like the first song the most (for now). It is made out of famous serial “Navštěvníci”. The intro of that serial I just a perfect personification of the future. And so Kyklos Galaktikos has the futuristic message.
Those who wanna know more about this group check their site, it is full of interesting stuff, mainly the stuff from their performances….meanwhile, listen to our online stream the Axis of good is running through its veins.
… One thing I have to pointed out, is that I do not like how the sound like if they just fall of the ROXOR ass.
