A tribute to musical formats

Yet again, we ponder the thought of where music is bound and headed, how an amalgamation and miniaturization of the creation process has been fueled through the advancement of technology, opening up a plethora of undiscovered opportunities which were not available in the era of 2 inch tapes, large boards, outboard equipment.

During its 2011 tenure in Madrid, the Red Bull Music Academy paid tribute to this evolution with an exhibition, various lectures and a special formats-themed party. In this mini-documentary, musical luminaries such as dubplate champion Hatcha, laptop wizard Clams Casino, and legendary disco edit master Greg Wilson, discuss how each format has become emblematic – and indeed, defined the sound of an era.

btw i still love traktor 🙂

Planet Rock – The Story Of Hiphop And The Crack Generation

The fact that crack cocaine and hip hop became the two biggest elements of urban street culture in the 1980s, suggests a new VH1 documentary, was not entirely coincidence.

“Planet Rock” (Sunday night at 10) doesn’t suggest hip hop caused the crack epidemic, or vice versa. It does argue that they fed off each other, particularly hip hop off the crack culture.

To make the case, the producers talk with major rap stars like Snoop Dogg, B-Real of Cypress Hill and RZA and Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan.

School of Synthesis

Dean Friedman of New York School of Synthesis back in the day. This is a great intro to sound & synthesis. The video is old but dont forget that most of the synthesis basic stuff coming from the past.

Check out Dean Friedman on wikipedia , he is really interesting guy!

“In 1985, Friedman produced a seminal work on the newly emerging synthesizer industry called Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers, and Drum Machines. Whilst dated, this tome is still of use in evaluating devices that crop up on the second-hand market. Friedman also set up the “New York School of Synthesis” and provided a series of videos entitled “Intro to Synthesis”. Friedman presents the rudiments of this topic in an audio-visual format, whilst incorporating a unique sense of humor.” Note the videos must be from 1988 or later as they reference the Korg M1. Thanks goes to Caixa in the comments for catching this.
