Meaningless Samples I

I like to think there is something coherent about these audio samples, but there isn't. These were created using the Figure by Propellerhead app, which is pretty damn rad.

minimal home audio speakers


 

 

Been keeping an eye out for a set of speakers to be paired up with the Gramafon Jukebox I backed a few months ago (and hopefully will arrive in the mail soon!)

I've been quite attracted to the idea of wall-mounted speakers (Muji, Braun) so that it uses as little functional space in the house as possible. Anything sitting on a table, TV stand, floor, etc. just feels like it's taking up space when the sole function of it is to enrich us with its brilliant sound, and not how it looks or where it sits. Almost like it's meant to be omnipresent, and above everything because in its own way, it's metaphysical. /wankrant

If all else fails, a sexy minimal and wooden finish is a good compromise too. I'm no designer, but what happened to good aesthetic, functional design these days? What happened to "let's just take a step back away from the bottomline and create something actually pretty damn amazing and clever?" I want to be wowed.

World Movies Dancing Bear Spot

To those who have had the misfortune of ever seeing me dance, my apologies.

This is what is going through my head most of the time.

Casino Versus Japan

Lack of internet access in the past four months meant a bit of a music drought. Then it kinda hit me in the face after picking up "Come along, do" (below) from the Fader mixtape Tycho did. After exploring more of Casino versus Japan's discography, I was thrilled. It was quite progressive considering when most of the material originally came out (2000s).
