"In a completely unrelated note, Spotify is shutting down in Uruguay after the country passed a bill that requires fair pay to artists, as reported by MixMag. The company made threats to shut down when the bill was first suggested back in July and now it has followed through. A spokesperson for Spotify actually wrote Uruguay's Minister of Education, Pablo Da Silveira, to say that the country’s bill would force it to “pay twice” the amount of royalties to artists." "
Any Oxford folks going to be going to the upcoming generative music event?
I'll be bringing a bunch of my chiptune stuff to jam out and people will be more than welcome to get hands on with my gear.
Synth genius Wendy Carlos studied physics & music at Brown & Columbia. She helped develop the 1st Moog synthesizer & her 1968 classical album Switched-On Bach went platinum. She brought #music & tech together & composed soundtracks for A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Tron & more.
Carlos was assigned male at birth & transitioned to female. Unfortunately, many journalists focus more on her gender than her accomplishments that changed music forever. http://www.wendycarlos.com
Yes! I loathe the word content. I always felt like it diminished whatever someone was making (art, videos, music, articles, blogs, posts, photos, etc) all into one boring thing "content".
Where are the artists, the musicians, the videographers, the writers, the film makers? They're "content creators"...
I hope this is a step forward for artist appreciation.
Hello 👋🏻 my name is Victor. I am a 35 year old cisgender, pansexual, Jewish guy who lives in New York City.
I am the co-admin for tooters.org alongside @sandy.
I can't believe it's closing in on 9 years since I release my Amiga/DOS album Astrayus Prelude.
I haven't played any of this live for a while but I still think it's super fun.
It's totally free, so feel free to download and share:
#lo0: 'a bit too far'
Following the success of the crowdfunded 'Made into Interlisp', lo0 followed up with what has since been dubbed the 'black bit album', breaching into the cyber-post-punk territory with an unforgiving anti-Mata sentiment.
The album featured a collaboration with Sev Gi, a sentient Pentium-M machine from the band 'Your trash' that provided vocals on track 7, Ballad of Computar Fyr, a musical retelling of the popupar myth.
Teacher Zakariya Dauda Abdulgafar got in touch to share this incredible achievement by students in Nigeria. Using nothing but found parts and a used #RaspberryPi, the primary school team built a functioning #music player.

Content warning: New music
Switching gears: The Linda Lindas sing about youth and I feel they are positioned well to comment on it. Their sound is a real throw-back for me.
It reminds me of Dream Wife who are brandishing a new album daring us to be better.

Also on #Spotify:
...& more platforms listed here!
This is such a cool idea.
It's estimated that 100,000 new songs are uploaded to #Spotify every day.
Inevitably, that means loads of really great music never gets heard.
Thanks to Venus Theory, I've just heard about #Forgotify, which points you to songs on Spotify that have no listens, or at least no complete play throughs.
And I've already found some real gems!
I like to listen to entire records from start to finish. In this day and age of streaming, I think that makes me something of an oddity. Maybe it's just a habit I can't shake from the days when I was collecting albums on CDs, but I think a record that is thoughtfully arranged to provide a memorable listening experience from beginning to end is artistic magic. (This is why I'm especially partial to concept albums.)
Anyway, all of that ☝🏼 to say that I only share songs from records I enjoy and that I would recommend as a whole. If you like something I share, do yourself a favor: check out the album!
So here's a bonus share tonight from an EP that is absolutely worth every second of its 22 minutes of play time:
