Brand new flavors, same comforting aesthetic. Taste the happy.
I started a blog inspired by aji peppers that you obviously need to check out. Lots of good documentation about different varieties of peppers, basil and even some fun recipes that will melt your face the fuck off.
But seriously, the website is very underground. You may even find some illegal peppers on there, please proceed with caution. Maybe I’ll start to focus on music again one day. Thinking ajiwave might need a sound and not just an aesthetic.
I have been listening to Geotic – Mend for quite a while and it is still one of my favorite albums. Even though it’s extremely minimal, I could listen to it nearly every night and not get sick of it. Fell in love with it in 2013 getting lost in downtown Coral Gables.
Geotic is a side project from Will Wiesenfeld, more widely known for his work as Baths and Post-Foetus. He is supposed to be releasing a new Baths album sometime 2014. The album Mend is very slow, ambient melodies (mostly guitar) painted over cleverly processed distortions.
You can download Geotic – Mend the entire album and many more for free here. Update: First Geocities, now Angelfire? Why do you take all the good sites away internet? Luckily, you can download it here in addition to his new albums. Dope.
It is widely known this process does generate perpetual energy based on recent case studies out of Cambridge University. A lesser known fact is Cats enjoy the spinning motion, purring the entire time creating a slightly more efficient spin.
Just because this is an electronic music site doesn’t mean I can’t post cat videos. Is it possible someone is giving Maru a run for his money?
Check this freaking thing out.
So, not even one post in 2012. How freaking pathetic is this blog. “Just let it die already!” you’re screaming. Who am I kidding, no one is reading this. I only have time for doing tweets lately (@bluedistortion – follow me bro!). I also spend a lot of time eating cookies.
Life is crazy and cookies are delicious.
Anyhow, I thought this was awesome–there’s been a vintage Moog Modular on eBay for what looks to be over a month now. The best part? It’s only $60,000. So sexy. Worth it to go and check out the pictures. It’s in amazing condition. Imagine all of the people you could impress with this thing (ladies?).
This multi-generational Moog system has the following modules included: 901, 901A, 3-901B, 4-902, 903, 2-904A, 904B, 907A, 4-911, 911A, 921, 951, 960, 961CP, 962CP, 984, 991, custom 994 (3x), 2-CP3A, CP4A, upgraded CP8A.
Update: the vintage Moog Modular is gone from eBay forever! So, in it’s place, here is a vintage E-mu Modular on eBay! One day this will be gone too and you will click and feel empty inside. Link
Today we feature Tim Reed who has the electro-acoustic ambient sounds down to a science, quite literally. Tim has a PhD in composition from the University of Florida and currently teaches music theory and composition at Manchester College in Indiana.
The work A Nonfunctional Teapot echos mangled samples of what I assume is teapots and other strange sound recordings based around the theme. These manipulations weave in and out creating a very interesting composition reminiscent of the great John Cage or Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Please download and enjoy. Tim Reed has plenty of other music for your perusal at the following links.
I’m going to go put on some tea.
Subaqueous – Liquescent
Here is a nice melodic, electronic tune from the Seattle composer Subaqueous. His music is a unique blend of beat science, melodic entrancement, and composition. Liquescent is an aptly named jam: flowing, liquid funk. You can purchase the album off of his Bandcamp site, or, keep up to date of new tunes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!
Here is a little trip hop tune with distorted breakbeats and pretty heavy bass, perfect for freestyling over. I don’t believe this song was on the website previous to the update, it’s available on the Origami Ham album. This song was done entirely on the Emu E5000 Ultra with samples from the Waldorf Microwave XT. Enjoy.
You can download the album in it’s entirety here.
