September 12, 2013 · Filed Under Music, News · Comment 

News - A succession of fresh, quality news, from inside and outside of the WebRecently I received a mail by Ben G., a volunteer of the Musopen.org project, which reminded me their new initiative: after having freed the great classical symphonies from copyright, this time the non-profit organization is turning to the complete works of Frédéric Chopin. The target is always the same - to record high-quality versions of the works by the renowned Polish composer for everyone to listen - just as the tool chosen to reach it, ie a crowdfunding campaign on the Kickstarter platform.

Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream

February 12, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Music · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too As a long time fan of Kraftwerk band I always feel a particular fondness for electronic music, whether it melt with the gloomy and metropolitan rock of Subsonica or follow the northern though charming pathways of Royksopp. Unfortunately there’s a bit of electronic in any damn pop tune released nowadays, and the value of experimentation with sounds has ended up in the back burner in respect of the overexposure of mean starlets used to feed, unconsciously, a grim showbiz that first swallows and then excretes them when they are digested.

July 18, 2008 · Filed Under Music, News · Comment 

News As a post-rock group like it has always been considered, the English band of Yorke & fellows has a strong sense of experimentation toward the discovery of new territories, be they artistic or merely technological. The experiment of In Rainbows, the album offered on-line in digital format with free price or even equal to zero has deeply shaken a recording market embalmed as usual, and now Radiohead return to charge with a new “first time”, the hi-tech videoclip taken from one of the In Rainbows tracks.
