Red Panda Lab Particle – Review and Demo by Ember Music artist Scott Brown

Ember Music artist Scott Brown (Fake Empire, Slowly We Falter) has posted a review and demo of the Red Panda Lab Particle. He also talks about some of the uses/techniques he discovered using the Particle so far.

Particle is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.

The audio demos were created by running an Elektron Machinedrum into the particle. It works particularly well with drum tracks so I wanted to show some of it’s potential. The audio was recorded into Logic via a Saffire Pro 40 interface.

NEW RELEASE: Ember Music Chain Album

Ember Music Chain Album

We are very happy to announce the release of the Ember Music Chain Album. The album is available now via Bandcamp !

This album started with an idea. Give an artist some random samples to use in an original track. Samples are then taken from the first track and given to the second artist to use. Samples from the second track are given to the third artist… on and on down the chain. The artists were not told whose samples they received nor to whom their samples would go. The artists were also sent an image as inspiration.

The results are quite astounding.

Credits:
Tracks composed, performed and mixed by the respective artists.
Mastered by Bill Bendrot.
Album art/design by Kurt Lorenz.
Chain album logo concept by Scott Brown.
Album concept by Daniel J. Davis.

Release date: 14 April 2014

NEW RELEASE: “One” by VIA VOLTAGE

Via Voltage One cover final

Via Voltage One cover final

One, is the debut full-length album from husband and wife duo Via Voltage. Feeling an absence of great synth-pop music born out of the 80’s they decided to give it new life in a current and exciting way. Their powerful use of counter-melodies, harmonies, and interwoven melodic conversations glimmer across the stereo spectrum making One a true Retro-Futuristic Synth-Pop experience.

One is available now (or very soon) from these fine retailers:

Apple iTunesAmazon MP3, Beyond Oblivion, Deezer, Google Music Store, iHeartRadio, Last.fm, Mondia Media, MySpace Music, Omnifone, Rhapsody, Shazam, Slacker Radio, Tradebit, Yandex, 7digital, Bloom.fm, Emusic, GreatIndieMusic, JB Hi-Fi, MediaNet, Nokia, Rdio, Samsung Music Hub, 24-7, Simfy, Spotify, and Xbox Music.

ALbum Review: TANGRAM: REPOSITORY [002] – BY CHRIS ROMANS, HEAR THE INDIE

TangramRepository2

Check out this fabulous review of Tangram’s Repository [002] by Chris Romans at Hear the Indie

Tangram is the solo project of artist Péter Fabók  who dabbles in an array of electronic, chill out styles of song. The music is almost entirely ambient, but not in a boring, sleep inducing way. Rather, it features some tight, almost orchestral, compositions with captivating synthetic tones and melodies…. Repository [002] is an exemplary album from this artist, and worth taking a look at if your into the sounds of space and ambiance.
