Two days ago I was interviewed by Thomas van Aalten for VPRO’s 3VOOR12 website (VPRO: Dutch television and radio). This article (Dutch text), about Creative Commons versus BUMA (the Dutch ASCAP), is a great read. I translated some of the very interesting parts of this article into English.(more…)
TruCast podcast episode 0006, plays my track Blowing Snow. Nice one, thanks! Like a lot of other people, I believe this track should be used in films and documentairies. If you are interested, or you can help me in any way; contact me!
The Duke is a milestone figure in modern music. Ellington created a link between New Orleans and classical music. So please check out the Dvorak to Duke Ellington podcast. A mp3-link is also available on the page. While you’re at the Dvorak to Duke Ellington page, do check out the link to the superb photographs […]
I just received an interesting E-mail from MI7, the Steinberg distributors. Here’s what they are trying to tell me: As from today we can no longer replace stolen or lost USB keys. This is due to a new policy from Steinberg. We ask everyone to have understanding about this. Here are the guidlines we have […]
Now that ReBirth is dead, we probably will miss it’s squelch, bubble and bleepy sound. I am not a purist, so I felt it was interesting to simulate it in Reason 3 using no samples. I needed one Malström to get okay results (that famous squelch, bubble and bleep). With that patch I created 2 […]
Yes, the Raapie.nl website is over. To make people move from Raapie.nl to Melodiefabriek.nl I wrote a long text, a little history so to speak. Just a few highlights, although there is so much more to write about; it was hard to choose. Raapie.nl was a weblogger website and a very popular and personal one. […]
Now that ReBirth is stored in the museum and considered as being 100% dead, I started thinking. Sure, I have been thinking about it a lot in the past. ‘What?’, you might ask. Well, the new product of Propellerhead of course!
For CCmixter I created a free Game Over sample-package. Fourstones did a fantastic remix using some of the samples.
This track by Click must be one of the craziest remixes based on my Combi Manifesto 1 demo-tracks/samples. Remixing is kinda cool, isn’t it? 🙂 Btw this Fourstones remix is very, very cool too!
Today Propellerhead Software announces that ReBirth is officially discontinued. Dead and put in a museum. Good news: a free Rebirth RB 338 Refill, containing many cool ReBirth mods! Propellerhead gives the 2.1 version away as a free .iso image now! So you can create your own ReBirth disk and install it. Very smart of the […]
I just read an excellent article at kottle.org about the current copyright madness. I mean; the music industry is probably the only industry where everything is protected by someone’s copyright. Fair use for example, does it still exist in the music industry? I don’t think so. Unless you are adopting Creative Commons, that is.
My track Chilled is again podcasted. This time on Passing Notes episode #7, a great show!
