Following on my last video/sound noise post, I came across this one. The artist basically subtracted the MP3 data from a "full resolution" version of Tom's Diner. What's left is the stuff-- the signal-- the MUSIC that is lost in the process of creating a MP3.
What he ends up with is what I hear in my head most of the time. A video artist applied a similar process to the video portion...
I neglected to include this here when we put out these songs in October of 2012. Dug this up recently as we're putting together some material for a radio show this Thursday night (5/9) Radio Valencia 87.9FM.
Take a listen and let me know what you think!
We recorded these one afternoon during a whirlwind weekend of shows south of San Francisco. These songs reflect the direction the band has taken after the Indecision & Single Payer releases: EVEN MORE-tightly fuzed frenetic noise and pop forms... spin, listen...
We're 25 days into 2010 Song-A-Day and hoo-boy, folks are feeling the immensity of the experience. It's no small feat creating, recording a song a day for a month as you can see from Jonathan Aronson's transformation:
Compared with previous years, the 2010 run has the most songs, the most variety, possibly the most talent and verve too. We've also been able to get the songs onto iTunes which has helped drive up the downloads: we'll have 24k downloads within 25 days and will likely finish the month with more than 30k downloads.
We're trucking along with Song-A-Day. This is the point in the month where the daily contributors cross the 'album-length' line. For me, an album doesn't really need more than 10-14-ish songs. So if the well wasn't so damn dry I'd say that the rest of the month is gravy.
For me, it's time to turn to other instruments, other family members, more wine, plagarism... you get the idea.
