30. Dez. 2010, 0:13 von blacklessIt's not a secret that every musical composition in the most general form can be described by an acoustic formula. For instance, let's consider the following:
Y = X1 + X2 + X3 + , , , + Xn where Xi is a variable that in a given proportion and succession shows the quantitative form that represents all the acoustic qualities of any composition and let us describe it in musical notes. To go further , two probabilistic concepts should be taken into consideration. Firstly, the more statistical data you have, the easier it is to find out whether there is trend or not. Secondly, if there is a trend you can predict its future data with a certain degree of exactness.
People often say that pop music is the same. And from the mathematical point of view it's the truth simply because in a given point of time we can find an almost linear relation between the popularity of a given song in general or in a given genre etc and it's acoustic qualities. …

22. Mai. 2010, 22:49 von blacklessI have always been obsessed by music; my ever-growing collection consists of 4000+ artists. Some people would say that it’s not constructive to spend so much time on music as long as time is extremely valuable and usually you can’t create any added value when you listen to music. What’s more, not so long ago I wasn’t good at studying, especially at mathematics. There were two main reasons: firstly, I wasn’t the most talented person ever, secondly, my passion for music often didn’t let me be productive. I even started thinking that something was wrong with me! Lately I’ve been trying to combat the problem and not without success! I think that there are quite a few people with the same problem, that’s why I want to tell you about my simple(?) but effective (at least in my case) method.
Everything started when I intentionally decided to extend my consciousness in terms of intellectual abilities and later to improve my physical abilities, physique and health in general. …

18. Dez. 2008, 22:00 von Thelonious9I think it’s been a great year for music. Well, I’ve enjoyed it anyway. Maybe it’s been lastfm and my friends there that made it for me.
Here are some acts that brightened up my year:
Elbow – suddenly the whole world was on their side and they loved it back. The show at the Roundhouse was very good but the one earlier in the year at the Festival Hall, with Fleet Foxes in support and a cobbled together choir in matching bowler hats, was one of the greatest I’d ever been to.
Hot Chip – A cracking mid-afternoon set just as we were flagging at the V festival.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! earned its six exclamation marks.
The Ting Tings – here on the merit of the year’s best pop song. I thought I’d tire of That’s Not My Name in two weeks but now think I never will.
Siouxsie – An electrifying set at the 02 festival. The two seventeen year olds standing behind us were considering offering themselves up for sacrifice.
19. Jun. 2006, 17:32 von pedroroloRecently I discovered the page of some music school which makes available on it's site the recordings of it's Orchestra.
They have some cool songs available and the quality of some recordings is quite acceptable.
there are also gulbenkian's solists virtual CDs for downloading here (string *ets):
and this two wonderfull sites:
One I love is their (Peabody Syhphonic Orchestra) interpretation of Rimsky-Korsakov's Shehrahzade. But there you can find many other famous pieces freely available to download: I'll post the list for the first to links here:

Hindsight for SPNM, 18 April 2006

Donald Bousted: Solo for Elisabeth
Giacinto Scelsi: Ko-Tha (movement II)
Jerry Wigens: still
Ed Bennett: My Broken Guitar
Alan Thomas: Etude 5 - Indigo Wave Box

Déjà vu: another fabulous venue, another event at the outskirts of my musical taste, another chance meeting with an acquaintance. Snapshot: experimental guitar works, part of a showcase curated by Rolf Hind for the Society for the Promotion of New Music. Ambience: a bloke in the row in front quite literally stroking his beard. Conclusion: my friend the purist spluttering "that was shit!" about the final, Ligeti-inspired etudes. Another glorious evening draws to its end.
