Resonance An exploration of the relationship between geometry and audio

An extremely fascinating and inspiring collaborative piece that will have your eyes terrifyingly glued to the screen the entire 11 minutes.

Resonance showcases 12-20 second pieces of visual and aural stimuli, enjoy. More information can be read as follows:

“A collaborative project with over 30 independent visual and audio designers / studios. The aim was to explore the relationship between geometry and audio in unique ways.

Animators and Audio Designers were paired up at the beginning of the project and were given the guidelines to create a piece between 12 and 20 seconds and in HD quality, the rest was up to them.”

My Brightest Diamond

"Reaching Through To The Other Side"

Shara Worden, the force behind the brilliantly beautiful My Brightest Diamond, stuns me again on “Reaching Through To The Other Side”.  While I certainly am a sucker for the beautifully recorded progressive pop arrangements on display here, Shara’s perfectly tempered vocal is the engine that makes this low-key creeper propel forward. 

Make sure to grab MBD’s new full length, All Things Will Unwind, out on Asthmatic Kitty on Oct 18.

This is pretty amazing.



Yeah so I have been a crappy absentee blogger since my work in the studio has been picking up over the past few months.  In an effort to not suck I have enlisted the help of my fellow music nerd discovery machine, Josh Iden, to submit some jams under the guise of KARATE CHOPSS  (the extra s is for none of your business).  For now, it will still be me writing the content but Mr. Iden will be doing the discovery since I am obviously doing such a half-assed job.

"Happy Families"

These kids, yes, kids are from Glasgow, Scotland and they seem to have a fuck everything mentality, except that their debut effort, Museum Of Blood is pretty fucking awesome.

Coming across like a blend of 70’s Itali-B horror movie soundtrack and The Unicorns Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?the art-rock weirdo three piece seem to have a knack for writing challenging tracks that still manage to keep you listening.
