A Matter Of Time

Rhythm, groove, scale, grid all these rather mathematical structures are somehow deeply human-like and animate us to wilderness.
This tiny book, written by John Lamb is a nice entry to the topic of rhythm and so called “entertainment”. Entertainment in this case doesn’t represent goofy movies but a sympathetic adjustment of things and human feelings and behaviors.
The book is enriched by many links to movies and some external reading helping us to understand the topic.
I would not say the book is excellent but it points to certain things that are worth of our time.

Sound in Z

Although the “Z” is still bit mystery to me the book is a wonderful enterprise to the early russian inventions their inventors and its political background that gives and stills their energy.
I have been reading this book while constantly shaking head not believing they could do what they had done. All the inventions they made in that time is just fascinating. If you count the political environment it all happened it is completely unbeliveable.
Sound recorded through light sensors, speech detections via window vibrations, picture transformation in to the music.. all things you might see in the recent art is all there, but century ago..

Must read it!

Rhytm science

..I was looking for book related to rhytm, grooves and such.
Unfortunately the book is just a selfish egoistic crap full of contemporary words lacking any real meaning. The only thing you can get out of this book is a text trying portray how is DJ Spooky cool flying from place to place having money and how wise he is while mixing stuff on stage.

This overpriced junk is not worthy any penny. Buy some mp3 instead!

Rhytm science
by: Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid


I’m totally fond of scientific approach to music especially when it is related with common brain functions and body nervous system.
Musicophilia is a grate marriage of the two in easily reading whole. Oliver shows on many examples how the music changes live of those who have some dysfunctions and in other situations how is the music deeply interconnected with us despite some other serious dysfunctions. This book is really a piece that cannot be missing in bookshelf of anyone who loves music and want to know why we cannot be without it.
I’m really that I have read it and I’ll surely come back to it when I need some valuable information on this topic.

Střešovická Kramle

If you ask me what would I suggest you to go in Prague* to see (experience), my brain will be jammed with emptiness for a while and then I’ll whisper “Střešovická Kramle”. They are fierce, full of jummy beats and high over-drived guitar tones. The voice is dark, texts full of depression from long gone infancy.

No matter how it is good, the only problem is that you have to ideally know them for a while, that adds much more sense to it, and also, the most important part of the whole music is their real presence. I would say, their presence is half of the music.

Enjoy the other half..

Matmos – The Marriage of True Minds

“The Marriage of True Minds” the right pace in to the future of sound..

This album is a perfect marriage of mind. The rhythm calmness and simplicity beautified by wide palette of sounds evolving with each rhythm is to my brain just like the pizza I have been lately in Paris. Small, obvious pizza like so many pizzas all around so you would not expect nothing uncommon from such wide spread food. Though I’m not pizza fun the girls there make pizza tasting like a nectar out Oz land.
Same thing can be told about the Matmos last album.. obvious sounds, even noisy recordings but all in such matched harmony.. such a tasty thing, I would love to eat it!

KLaNGundKRaCH news

It is hard to say anything about the KLaNGundKRaCH once I can type here only.
The core truth s that KLaNGundKRaCH is beating hard all the Prague and other spaces whee you can scream out of your gut without restraint until the sun pins its first rays through the window hole.

Real life poetry

I just like the way how she almost sings it, and it more then true as well.
She could even fill up a hall and run awesome concerts I would like to go.
