Runningonair Music– Market Stall
« on: June 25, 2010, 02:56:38 AM »
Thanks for the welcome.  I’ve been impressed by the wide spectrum of musical tastes displayed on this site.  It seems that it’s a good place to let people know what you’re up to.

On that subject, I guess I could go on for while.  There are a number of projects on the go but I’ll stick with a bit a background first for this post.

Runningonair Music was setup last year as a publisher and record label for runningonair (that’s me).  I’ve actually been doing music for ages, at least since the ‘80s but I decided that I needed to finish a CD project before they stopped being produced all together ;-)
The first album “Out of process” a comment on our IT centric world.  Has been received well by all of the reviewers I’ve sent it too, including some of the people on this forum (see below).  I have to say it is an unusual album largely because the material on it was created over a period of 10 years.  There are a wide variety of styles ranging from down tempo, electronic, minimalist, soundtrack and dare I even say rock!, well maybe.

I doubt, I’ll produce anything quite like this again.  Check it out here:

There are a lot of free samples and downloads above so you should be well informed, if you decide to make a purchase.  For anyone in Canada/US there are a number of disks at the ping things site.

There is a spin off EP “Click Continue” on the way more of that later.

Found this podcast which includes a track from "Out of Process".  This is an interesting podcast anyway, as it cover wide range of musical styles, so is well worth listening to.

It's taken 6 months to get this one together but it's finally here

It's a real mixture of electronic styles.  The link takes you to a video of the most chilled track on the disc.  I'll try to get few more samples up soon.

Artist: Runningonair
Title: Click Continue
Label: Runningonair Music
Catalogue #: RM003
Release Date: 09/07/10
Musical Style: Electronic, Acid, Dubstep, Experimental


   
The Release:
The “Click Continue” EP, whilst being essentially a remix CD, seeks new territory within the genre. A collection of artists of diverse styles have created 4 new tracks which are then united by an over lying musical form.

“Runningonair” is joined by “Dan Lo-Fi” and “Chocolate Girl” in the completion of this project.

“Click Continue” is available as an mp3 download and CD-R.

The Tracks:
Click – Introduction
This piece starts pleasantly enough but builds to a distorted goose stepping climax, which descends into a short lived bass violin drone.
Click Continue (Dan Lo-Fi Acid Coda Remix)
The first collaborative track immediately lifts the mood by introducing direct quotes from the original and then moves on quickly into an upbeat IDM interpretation.
Click – Interlude
Slowing the pace down, various phrases are stretched to the edge of recognition.  Digital artefacts invade the soundscape as does new thematic ideas. Overall the mood is calm and reflective.  An accompanying video of “Click – Interlude” is also included on the disc, accessible through a PC or other computer.
Click Continue (Chocolate Girl Remix)
The second collaborative track sparingly combines original elements and a slew of new material into an engaging dubstep mix.
Click Continue (Original Mix)
The Disc finishes with the original track exactly as it appears on the album “Out of Process”.

The Artists:

“Systems out of Chance” - CD/DVD/Booklet - Reissue - £7.99

http://www.runningonair.com/SooC.html






 “The Systems out of Chance project was the result of a series of dialogues: a dialogue between image maker Craig Burston and composer Joe Evans working in collaboration; a dialogue between the subjective and the objective; a dialogue between chance and structure; a three-way dialogue between text, image and sound.”
Sam Gathercole, art writer, March 2010
-
A collaboration between composer Joe Evans and image maker Craig Burston resulted in Systems out of Chance being shown at the Parfitt Gallery, Croydon, March 2010. Six speakers and three portrait monitors were synched to create an immersive audio-visual triptych born out of a shared love of systems, chaos and the everyday. The Fibonacci sequence was adopted as a formula to take the initial photographs shown in temporal sequence and transpose them into other sensory forms.
The soundtrack throws light on Joe’s lightness of touch and knack of making the mathematical sound human and the chaotic sound warm. Naked piano is within touching distance of low key drones and machine noise.
The companion DVD is the latest result in Craig’s on-going quest to find the beauty within the banal and dark within light. Lost and discarded gloves are transposed into colour charts and dry descriptions akin to witness statements or blog tags.
Notes: Ltd edition CD/DVD in hand made packaging. DVD comes with exclusive surround sound remix version. This is the second official release on Runningonair music.

That looks nice! I must say, I am a little jealous. One of my goals as a musician is to create an installation environment for a public display-- something you have already succeeded in doing.

I can tell you, it's a lot of hard work!  but worth it in the end.  I've started on a second one, it should have 8 screens if it all comes together.

This Q&A session gives a real insight into how “Systems out of Chance” came about and how it was put together.  The discussion came about as result of Tom’s research into “music visualisation…. looking at Generative Systems and ways that music can be visualised using systems in order to create some form of graphic score as an outcome”.  Thanks to Tom for his interest as it certainly helped me to clarify my thoughts regarding the piece.

Are you using the forum just to promote your products? I see almost all the comments are from Runningonairmusic.  We call it spam.

Sadly, due to lack of time, I unable to interact more generally, which is why I try to keep it all in the same place.

Also I try to keep it in the appropriate place i.e. "other artists and labels".

Spam?  Well I'm sorry you think that.  If I was trying to sell fake viagra I'd be forced to agree but all I'm trying to do is let people know about what I'm up to with very limited resourses avaiable to me.

Appoligies for any offence caused and the late response.
