One of the most fascinating archeological finds in Russia has been the discovery of hundreds of “birchbark documents” (messages written on the bark of birch trees with a sharp stylus) that were created from the 11th to the 15th century…
The drawings from Novgorod that we have found appear to all come from a Russian boy named Onfim, who lived at the end of the twelfth century or beginning of the thirteenth century in the city of Novgorod. By the estimate of the archaeologists who unearthed his works, he was around seven years old at the time that he made these drawings.
Heading back into [jit.expr] land. This patch is an extension of dude837’s tutorial 31, which starts a bunch of tutorials on creating Gantz Graf-like FX in Jitter (Gantz Graf of course being the title of the landmark track/video by Autechre/Alex Rutterford).
Initially, I was upset because The Dude says you need Gen to do the effect, but yesterday I figured it out with expr. It’s all part of the frustrating and exciting journey you take with Max I suppose. You find a way to make something, while at the same time realising how little you really understand. Them’s the breaks.
"Battle Hymn Medley" - Marisa Anderson, Hollywood Theater, Portland, OR, October 2012
A nice surprise — the great guitarist Marisa Anderson is putting out a second 2013 LP, hot on the heels of the masterful Mercury. This one is called Traditional & Public Domain Songs and it seems to be exactly that — Anderson’s own distinctive, solo guitar takes on some old timey material. The samples sound awesome. This clip is awesome, too.
