Artificial Intelligence Creativity Machine Learns to Play Beethoven in the Style of The Beatles' "Penny Lane" | Open Culture

Wed, 05/25/2016 - 17:06 -- rprice

In the above video, the Flow Machine developed by François Pachet at Sony CSL-Paris has been fed Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, and then asked to orchestrate “cover versions” following the rules set down by a genre–say bossa nova or electronic chill music–or a song itself, in this case being the Beatles’ “Penny Lane.”

10 Songs I Never Mind Hearing At Auditions — OnStage

Fri, 07/10/2015 - 11:05 -- rprice

Probably none of these are going to suit you, in particular. They’re just generically wonderful. As a Boston musical director once put it, the best auditioners “are clearly showing a natural sense of who THEY are, with a piece that fits THEM well, as opposed to someone who seems to be trying to “impress” with a song choice or who is trying to “be a character” too much. Sing something that simply shows who YOU are.”

Free Music Archive: Song-O-Phone

Fri, 05/15/2015 - 15:47 -- rprice

Welcome to the Song-O-Phone! Each track represents a link in the chain, begun by sending Song I to a single person. Each artist only heard the version directly before them when recording their track, then had 24 hours to complete theirs. There are three chains, numbered with I, II, III... and 2, 3, 4... and lettered A, B, C.

Free Music Archive: Build A Mixing Bowl Reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

The concept of a plate reverb is quite simple. An electromagnet, like the one found on a audio speaker, is directly or indirectly coupled to the center of a piece of sheet of metal. Audio from a sound source is fed into this electromagnet (voice coil) which will physically vibrate the piece of sheet metal (plate). These audio vibrations are echoed many times, echos which are in fact persistence of audio. The amount of persistence (reverberation) is determined by the physical characteristics of the plate.

ionosonde recordings: D.I.Y. plate reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

Now that I had a working voice coil (driver) ready for mounting on the plate reverb unit, it is time to fabricate a coupling link that will directly connect the driver to the plate. But first, I need to do something with this mess I made while performing that gruesome surgery on our patient. A quick sweeping with my trusty broom and......wait a minute - broom - broom handle... Perfect! A broom handle is the right size for making a driver coupling link.
