Mixed With Love: The Musical World Of Walter Gibbons
: "This tale begins with a skinny white DJ mixing between the breaks of obscure Motown records with the ambidextrous intensity of an octopus on speed. It closes with the same man, sick with Aids and all but blind, fumbling for gospel records as he spins up eternal hope in a fading dusk. In between, Walter Gibbons transformed the art of DJing and marked out the future co-ordinates of remixology." [more inside]

J.M. Nasim's Psychedelic Jew's Harp.
Such a simple and ancient instrument, the Jew's Harp
, or maultrommel
, or Koukin
, or Khomus
, or guimbarde
, or genggong
, or numerous other names
, has never sounded quite like this
(streaming mp3 link).
I create this music live. No multi-tracking, no playback of pre-recorded material, no sampling. The raw signal of voice and Jew’s Harp feeds into a portable bank of automated processors. Here, various programmatic, architectonic sound spaces frame rhythmic zones within which certain acoustic potentialities reside. These sonic holograms manifest my musical explorations as shape-shifted sound. Seminal acoustics are gestated into new aural forms to birth multi- dimensional soundscapes of interpenetrating pulses and harmonics.

Fancy yourself as a mixmaster? Marillion
are offering you the chance to remix their last album, Anoraknophobia
. Tracks cost £10 per song for the masters, or £60 for the whole album. Whatever you think of the band (like/hate/never heard) this is certainly an unusual opportunity. Feel creative? There's a prize of £500 per song for the best mix.

Think anybody can make electronic music? You're right
. This snappy flash ap from Crash!Media makes Mobies out of the musically challenged. Today I learned that a pleasant, new agey sound scape can be turned to pure evil with just a little loud bass! [via Evhead
