10cc - The Original Soundtrack

a very belated happy new year!

here is some art pop from back when 10cc was art pop, my favorite of their works.

if you are interested in music production techniques, look into how the track below ("i'm not in love") was produced, some very clever techniques there!

György Ligeti - Edition (Collection)

hello again! just checking up, hiya! :)

just fyi, edition 7 does not feature the song below (continuum), i believe it is in 5, but the entire collection is totally worth finding. 

btw, edition 8 is la grand macabre, ligeti's insane opera about the events leading up to the apocalypse, and the inevitability of death. it features a car horn opening, a door bell solo, a debate between two political parties (black and white) which consists of only direct insults and immature gestures, and a hilarious piece in which a man dressed as the moon (he's the king/mayor) receives coded messages from the head of the secret service. did i mention almost the entire play is a serial 12-tone composition (perfectly atonal, mathematically speaking). find a recording of it if you can!

Secede - Tryshasla

this has been one of my favorite albums for a while, i should have posted it sooner :S

lush atmospheric soundscapes and amazing beats... it reminds me of an instrumental clark mixed with ambient brian eno. quite alien, but so comforting that you can't help being relaxed by it.

Passenger Of Shit - 7

Cover Art (click at your own risk, NSFW!)

a beautiful mix of speedcore, breakcore, harsh noise, and pure, refined shit. the name fits well. the lyrics and musical style changes throughout the album immensely, and by the end of the album he is just screaming like he is in immense pain while sampling dirty rap, with heavy distortion on everything. i love it.

Audio Sample (again, NSFW, as it displays the cover art.)
