FullSizeRender-35

An article about our experience of the world through digital mediatisation.

“It’s a strange notion, this: digitisation has become so comprehensive and penetrating it is now able to express the fundamental categories within which we perceive reality itself–but of course this is merely an image, like any other.”

• An article about sound collecting.

“Everyone should listen more. But they should just start with what they’ve got. I’ve traveled a lot, but still the most awesome sound I’ve ever heard—the most beautiful, the most rich, the most musical—is the blackbirds in my garden.”

An article about how producers use and think about sampling in their music.

“As sampling techniques continue to evolve, so too does the debate over the validity and the artistic merits of sample-based music.”
