ne I

ne-iThings are coming up as fast that I’m not able to post about all at a time. Today’s topic is ne I. Japanese people might think it could be about “price greatness”, people from Norvay might thing it’s not cool. I think it all depends on point of view :) ne I is newly formed band playing with things in unusual way. Couple newly recorded song are just running on server where from you can listen them in playlist.

The Theremin Queen

theremin-2880I’m so delighted. It has been long long time I had born then played bass guitar hated frets, still cannot find a way how to play, then found an airbrush and its way of air…then there was a delay, some brain measure period and now, FINALLY have the air instrument Theremin, the Loop machine just sits on my table, Voice Box on the way and Pamelia Kurstin recording for free, wow. This all happened in the click of eons slightly transforming the pitch of the Internet waves into voice like sound kinda melancholic as we all are.

Thanks to http://www.radioopensource.org where you can listen the whole Theremin story performed by the best Thereminist Pamelia Kurstin…

Searching the history through the nerves

nerveSearching for the inspiration my eyes stucked on the shelf with my old CDs and end up on the awsome album from Holland band Nerve from 1995 (Blood & Gold). When I thought how to represent this mind shift I realized that the direction is clear, REVERSE.

So here it is. Year 1995 seen & heard from the current timeline position. You can listen this time shift on the stream, as usual.

share my harmonics

meduzaLook what we’ve got there, bunch of new mp3s, but wait this is a regular music, neh? Who’s this noname guy, some Jack Conte and what he has to do with Radiohead and James Bond and such? I don’t know man, I think it’s just his own choice what he want to play, but one thing is important, he throw it out for free and that’s something to admire.

Of course they circling on the scream already :)

Frankly I found this guy on electro-harmonix website when I wanted to find some loop station of my needs. I did. This awesome 2880 thing has even similar name to mine :) I love it, ….anyway, that’s different story. So enjoy this new stuff produced on the orb by some brassy monkey named Jack Conte.

Dracula’s sister

dracula_by_hollymariemaOk, this going to be melancholic. Imagine Dracula’s sister in Zurich, wierd huh? That’s not enough she even speaks German, what more she sings German.. that’s a big deal, neh?

The only one who broke the spell was some guy I don’t remember when it was, I think his name was Bach or whoever..anyway they know it going to be hard and it was and still is. So because she has the power of many, she is capable to bear such a unbearable labour. I’m not speaking of the whole group though, it name Tafeal is…pity me. …….I’m not bitten! … but if you like to be, tune in, maybe you’ll be The lucky one ;)

Welcome in the land of schrieking monkey living on the orb streaming all over! DOn’t undestand what I’m saying here? Shigata ga nai, neh :D

PING – PONG

ping-pongEven though I haven’t been in Karlsruhe and haven’t seen the SUSI GAMES I meet RISKONG.

Those who grew out in late 80′ especially close to the hearth of Europe knows the famous game PIN – PONG which my dad soldered DIY :) and we played on B&W TV. As the times went further mobiles became IN and SMS was the deal. At that time RISKONG with other people made the multiplayer mobile SMS game SUSIPONG.

You can chceck the concept by your self but waht you cannot do anywhere else then here is to listen the SUSIPONG sound composition. SUSIPONG conposition exclusivelly on MONKEY ON THE ORB.

Thanks to don’t remember who, who point me to that website, it’s full of interesting sound tones, glitches and marvelous compositions.
