Nice one.
Instead of PNRGs from the CD players one could use attractor functions. A friend of mine just tried out some on one of his software synths and it sounded amazing (he was controlling the index of a granular synth module). Attractors usually are more pattern-like, but with random deviations.

Thx guys. I actually hadn't been much aware of that site until recently a friend of mine posted it on Facebook

For both of you (Forrest Fang & Loren Nerell) I couldn't find any music on the site. Did you take it down successfully or did just nobody upload it yet? Would you just ignore the matter like me ignoring Youtube/Rapidshare/Torrents?
It is somehow different than Youtube (only some songs on YT and most in rather bad quality) and Rapidshare/Torrents (you clearly know it's illegal if you download).

I have about 50 Google accounts


Seems you have to register on a lot of sites anonymous  ;D

I'm using Google Apps, and have about 20 mail addresses there (I'm using dedicated e-mail addresses for registering to forums, getting newsletters, personal communication, official communication, my little mailorder shop, server notifications,...). Additionally, about 10 Youtube accounts, 3 Google docs accounts, and the rest (Google code, ...)

I just realized that all my albums are available in full length on
After a few researches I realized that the content is mostly user-generated, so probably users uploaded it there. I'm pretty sure the label(s) didn't approve that.
What is your experience with that site? Can I or the labels request to delete the content?

Google+ is pretty much unusable for me.
I have about 50 Google accounts and I'd need to switch accounts whenever I'd like to use G+. I cannot use Youtube and G+ at the same time, or Google Docs, or GMail, etc...

Wow, that's awesome. Thanks dude!  :)

Here's a rough translation of the link Tomas posted above:

All sounds recorded by PALAOA are send via WLAN to the Neumayer station and from there to Bremerhaven. Here you can listen to what can be heard in the Antarctic Sea.
Due to the long signal path of 15,000 km the live stream  might experience delays or downtimes. In that case you will be hearing the latest recordings of the last days. If the broadcast shouldn't work at all please try again later or listen to our selection of examples: animal noises or ice sounds

I think I could listen to that forever...

But there seems to be a different level of expectation with eletronic music than with other musics in general.  Why do we seem to expect more sonic novelty when we are listening to synthesiazers and samplers, as opposed to, say, rock music?

I guess the major point is that electronic music relies much more on technical aspects than any other genre and hence has a certain tendency to get "old".
My roots are within the Techno/House/IDM/etc.. scene and I know no other genre that develops faster. Back in the 90s the possibilities of production where very limited. But with affordable computers and software you suddenly had a lot more ways to work on music. As soon as a new cool software arises, the entire scene might change again. Electronic music is dependent on technology and this causes said problems.

Guitars don't develop that fast, neither do pianos, basses, cellos, violins, drums, ...

Well you can usually hear people, slow driving cars and the 13 bells of world's tallest church:
This is how the street looks:
On Saturdays it's a pedestrian zone.

Good topic, thanks for picking that up.
Let me precise said comment I made in this thread: :
Innovation might be the wrong word, let's say development instead. The latest Steve Roach releases sound well.. pretty much like older Steve Roach releases. There's a high level of self-similarity. Whereas when I compare it with Robert Rich - he has much more development in his latest works.
This doesn't say anything about the quality of music. I truly admire Steve's work and I'd probably never get close to his deepness of atmospheric layers in my own music. However the new releases just don't excite me any more, I'm missing the "wow, I NEED to get that" factor because I think I've already heard it in the previous CD.

Development (or its more drastic form: innovation) isn't just about sounds, it's about the totality of all musical aspects instead. I have to admit I don't know anything from Ralph Towner except his name, but if I take a random band/musician that comes to my mind: Esbjörn Svensson (RIP) and EST (Esbjörn Svensson Trio) - I have all of their albums and you can clearly hear the development in the music, although it's always the same instruments (piano, bass, drums).

However I guess it must be very hard to keep up with the self-development over such a long time...

Wow.. vinyl is officially sold out now - within one month...

That's great! I was enjoying listening to that. Somebody on the forum had a link to an aeolian harp somewhere in Europe, I think Germany, that was really neat to listen to. That's a great idea to have them all over the world.

Thanks! Hehe that was also me ;-)
The aeolian harp is in the same city (Ulm, South Germany) as the field recording livestream. It's actually not mine, it's a donation to the university (it is located on the campus) by a friend of mine. I just set up the streaming.
