Back in the spring of this year I worked with some good friends on the TEDxUofM team to build an interactive LED Cube installation for the 2012 TEDxUofM Conference. I’ve since taken portions of the cube on tour with the Zen Tapes crew, and played with it at Total Bummer Festival last weekend. Facebook event for the entire tour can be found here, and peep below for the remaining dates that...
RIP: Altered Zones
Back in the summer of 2010 when we all heard the first breath of what would be Altered Zones, I was quite skeptical of what Pitchfork was setting out to do; worried that Altered Zones would end up being simply an over-hyped regurgitation of the best of the best of the blog-whirled. However, as the past year and half has gone by we’ve all seen the Blogosphere change quite a bit, and with...

Belfast to Berlin →
It’s been about a week since I’ve moved out to Berlin, leaving behind the wondrous island of Ireland. Several months out at the Sonic Arts Reserach Centre at Queen’s University resulted in two projects that I’m quite proud of. One of those is ted, the tangible electrophonic drumstick that (pending some minor repairs) should be back and alive again during my upcoming Kohwi...

love from the deafstar smokedontsmoke: Subvader = Make Love to the Moon Subvader, aka Pete Wiley, is a purveyor of space sounds, a romantic at heart, and another among the growing population of rad producers/artists coming to us from Michigan. And it’s no surprise he’s buddies with Cory Levinson of Kohwi. Cory is actually who tipped me off to Pete’s music. Vibe to the max. He has a slew of...

this is music that people should NEED TO know about. The end. gobblegbl: First out the gates is Purity Ring, the project of Corin from GBL, and Megan James, who was in GBL’s first incarnation and whose spirit still lives on in the band. These are synth-poppy, minimal, hiphop-inflected pop songs — glowy and irresponsibly hooky. (Tumblr, Facebook, …

Hobbies (ft. Mutual Benefit)
This is one song that had been sitting on the back burner for quite some time. I never thought it sounded quite full enough, and a month or so ago was talking to Jordan Lee (mutual benefit) about doing some collaborative goodness. Having him fill this one out w/ guitars, more synths, and additional vox seemed like the perfect way to bring this track to fruition. Really couldn’t be happier...

Workin on a mini-cd split with JHC»> pillweekend: So ♥ Party Favor Capsules ♥ has been a massive sucsess, and we’ve raised over 100$ for Pill Weekend, which is absolutely mind-blowing, considering I didn’t think we’d make five bucks total.
