  • Autharktos - Statick (2014)

    8 Feb 2014, 6:52 de Borealiscape

    these 9 compositions by the Estonian noisenik Autharktos used to stylistically extend from motorik, drone-y lo-fi manipulations and symphonic noises to more elaborated rhythm structures and electronic soundscapes, however, searching for new expression freedom. The album can be streamed and downloaded at the following sites:

  • 10 Reasons You Should Play the Guitar

    5 Feb 2014, 13:56 de Neue_regel_

    I just read a very interesting article:

    http://www.menshealth.com/health/10-reasons-play-guitar?cm_mmc=BestLifeNL-_-1577714-_-01242014-_-10ScientificReasonsYouShouldPlaytheGuitar-hed

    MAIN POINTS :

    1. Have you ever wondered why guitarists seem so laid back and loose on stage? Some shredders even appear to be immortal, like the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. Maybe they just have access to really good doctors, but here’s another potential explanation: The axe might be as powerful as anything inside the medicine cabinet. Strapping on a Fender could boost your brainpower, sex life, six-pack, and more.

    2. Feel Serious Pleasure
    Who needs groupies? Simply plugging in your guitar, playing it, and listening to the music you’re creating can make you feel good—orgasmically so. According to a neuroscientific study from McGill University, hearing music triggers the release of dopamine in the brain, the same chemical that’s released during sex. That’s like musical masturbation.

    3. Wave Away Stress
    Whether it’s your boss or bills that give you anguish, grabbing your Gibson can help zap stress. A dual study from the Mind-Body Wellness Center and Loma Linda University School of Medicine and Applied Biosystems found that stress can be reduced on a genomic level by playing an instrument. Rocking out actually reverses your body’s response system to pressure.

    4. Send Pain Packing
    Forget popping pills: If you live with chronic pain, reach for a pick. According to a study from the University of Utah’s Pain Research Center, listening to music—and in this case, your own sweet licks—can take your mind off, and thereby reduce, pain.

    5. Sharpen Your Mind
    Did Einstein secretly shred? A new Scottish study says if you play the guitar—or any musical instrument, for that matter—you’re more likely to have sharper brain function, which can help guard against mental decline in the future. Open a songbook and study up.

    6. Roughen Your Ticker
    Rockers have killer chops—and cardiovascular systems: Researchers from the Netherlands found that patients who practiced music for more than 100 minutes a day showed a significant drop in blood pressure and a lower heart rate than those who didn’t. Three of the test subjects? Guitarists.


    7. Subconscious Seduction.
    Can’t wail yet? Don’t worry. Just carrying a guitar case can seriously boost the odds of women wanting you—even if they’re total strangers, finds recent research in Psychology of Music. How come? Studies show women associate musical ability with intelligence, commitment, hard work, and physical prowess—and ladies associate all those qualities with your ability to earn money. Israeli researchers recently sent friendship requests from a good-looking guy to 100 attractive, single women. In half the requests, the guy was holding a guitar. In the other half, he wasn't. Only 5 of 50 women accepted a friendship request from the guitar-less guy, while the man with the axe scored 14 attractive new “friends,” according to the study. The reason: Musical ability is linked to manliness.


    9. Strike It Rich
    You might not make it in the music biz, but your guitar could still help you earn the big bucks: Researchers from Michigan State University found that musicians who picked up an instrument at an early age and continued nurturing their craft throughout adulthood had a better chance of launching successful invention—logging patents, building businesses, and publishing pieces.

    10. Build More Brainpower
    Stuck at work without your six-string? You’re still giving your brain a workout: According to a Cambridge University study, musicians continue being creative even when they’re not playing their instruments. Researchers found that performers visualize music in terms of its shape, and then process that as a form of practice. Most don’t see it as such, but it’s a highly creative way of learning.

    And a Bonus reason:
    - Record Yourself, Reward Yourself
    Often times, guitarists will record their sessions or demo songs; that way, they can go back and practice them. But bring your recordings to the gym and you might see a physical benefit: Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences found that music doesn't just make for solid background noise while working out—it actually made exercising less exhausting for study participants.




    Neue regel's final note:
    - If not a guitar, then another string-like instrument like Piano could be impressive as well.
  • A new song and online store by VFSix

    13 Ene 2014, 11:33 de vfsix

    In space of VFSix passed a symbolic 12 years cycle. Our musical project grew from three musicians to tens, have gone beyond the borders of Moscow and a light trip-hop style frame, and have got the name V.I.C Sound. We were engaged generally in writing music and getting it through to our listeners, who could download our tracks for free and got gift CD's at our concerts. Now we have a good experience of working with record companies, publishers, distributors. The main conclusion is: the most fair and transparent way is to do everything by ourselves, independently.
    Therefore we invite all our fans to our online store vicsound.ru, where you can listen and download tracks of all our projects. All new music will appear first of all here as well.
    Purchasing on the site vicsound.ru you can be sure that all money goes directly to authors and performers. And now a choice where to search and download our music is yours.
    Have a good listening!

  • these are the people to whom music is meditation by mobdividual

    9 Oct 2013, 2:07 de blockproject

    the latest effort for immediate tranquil listening pleasure

    these are the people to whom music is meditation by Mobdividual

    from full review by the brainless horde:
    "The music just isn’t written like I, someone who likes to describe in text, would like it to be. I’d call it “post-rock”, but unless it’s the soundtrack to your yearly haunted house run, it won’t get your blood pumping. You could call it “ambient”, but it doesn’t wash over you as much as it pulls you in. You could try calling it “noise”, but it has too much structure and melody to be simplified like that. You could try and pawn it off as a film score, but, aside from David Lynch, I don’t think any director would be able to come up with the random imagery needed to describe the sound palette. While the music itself isn’t something that’s never been done before, it is definitely a breed of its own."

    recorded over a few months, after demoing ideas to myself and as well as developing these songs to be performed solo-instrumental in a live setting; bars, clubs, cafes, basements, garden parties, galleries, festivals, restaurants, etc..

  • What is music for me

    23 Sep 2013, 5:10 de Neue_regel_

    I usually adopt my own variation of the Wiki definition for 'music':

    Music is an Art form. It consists of fluctuations of sound and/or silence. Silence is the absence of sound. Sound is a mechanical wave. Sound is manifested as an oscillation of air pressure (or some other medium).

    Sound is transmitted through some medium, such as gas (e.g. air), solid (e.g. metal) or liquid (e.g. water). It is composed of frequencies within the range of animal hearing. On human hearing: it is restricted to sounds that are perceptible by the human ear. These sounds have frequencies from around 20 Hertz (bassy) to 20 Kilohertz ( high-pitched). Hertz is the number of cycles per second. Therefore, high-pitched sounds of 20 Kilohertz are 20 thousand air-pressure oscillations per second. (or 1 cycle every 50 microseconds (μs). Cesium-133 atom is the benchmark for the hertz definition.

    P.S. 1 :
    Air pressure (P) is directly correlated to ambient temperature(T) , gas volume (V), and substance amount (n), according to the Universal Gas Law:
    P * V = n * R * T
    where
    P = the absolute pressure of the gas, in Pa (pascal)
    n = amount of substance, in mol
    V = the volume of the gas, in cubic meters (m^3)
    T = the absolute temperature of the gas, in Kelvin (K)
    R = the universal gas law constant of 8.3145 m3·Pa/(mol·K)

    P.S. 2 :
    Excerpt off Dawkins' Unweaving the Rainbow :
    "The feeling of awed wonder that science can give us is one of the highest experiences of which the human psyche is capable. It is a deep aesthetic passion to rank with the finest that music and poetry can deliver. It is truly one of the things that make life worth living and it does so, if anything, more effectively if it convinces us that the time we have for living is quite finite. "
