Noise of the light
By Orson Hentschel. Taken from his bebut album ‘Feed the tape‘ out on Devonali.
Sun Boxes are an environment to enter and exit at will. It’s comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. There is a different loop set to play a guitar note in each box continuously. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time.
The World’s Most Important 6 Second Drum Loop
Obwohl einem bei der Erzählstimme des Sprechers leider das Gesicht einschläft, eine doch recht interessante Geschichte über den ‘Amen-Break‘ der Winstons.
This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the ‘Amen Break,’ a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hip hop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music — a six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures. Nate Harrison’s 2004 video is a meditation on the ownership of culture, the nature of art and creativity, and the history of a remarkable music clip.
