Particle physics and music-how CAN you interpret ‘particles performance’ into music that conveys accurately or non accurately, their status and movement? What an ask! Still I like having a go……

Do other complex worlds just as complex as our own exist in other dimensions co-existing alongside us and can we capture the nuances of these parallel Universes??  They have been postulated to exist by a few scientists, and if that is so, can we pick up their harmonies??

According to physics, the Sub-Atomic World is so complex they call it ‘Exotic’ because of the complexity, beauty, and non-conformance to standard equations.  They are having to build a new mathematical language and ‘archtiecture’ to understand the workings.  What would the music of these ‘worlds’ sound like if they exist?  Scientists say there are 11 to 13 dimensions known to exist-how do these sound?  How does the music of ‘paralell dimensions’ interact with our music?  Interesting question.  Currently, I am writing pieces for an Electronic EP, and the current piece takes a regular but beautiful ‘Glass Bells’ sounds, with other sound creating harmonies.  Then, there are sounds created by mashing pianos that sounds like particles ‘spinning off’ at speed.

This is only a light ‘go’ at this time as there are various other idea’s also claiming thinking time…..

Listen to some music at:

latest from Paul Stokes…..

Hi all,

Hope you had a brillaint Christmas/New Year……..just to remind you, I am working on my latest Electronic Album which is proving a real ‘proving ground’ and testing my ‘keep to brief’ ability.  When I write, I find myself going in too many directions, and having to scale back idea’s.  If I didnt I think people would be left feeling confused or ‘torn apart’-LOL.

Hi,

I love the winter, and snow etc, it helps me for whatever reason to compose. I have the Native Instruments Komplete 7 system and Kore 2. With so many sounds and mangaling facilities, I should come up with some good stuff for the new EP I’m working on. Still mixing the 4th track (been a few weeks now!?) Winter, live on forever-I get more done………

Been listening to Carols..looking forward to my new Denon DM38 Stereo system with Cambridge s20/30

Hols over…………….?

by Paul on October 2, 2010

in General

Hi All,

I return refreshed and ‘eager to go’ from hols in Scotland, also having dined on a Haggis caught in the hills….?  We had a Stag wander nonchalantly through the garden in front of the car coming up the drive!  Its a new season and a bit of software needs to be purchased to keep up to date-Wavelab 7 for the Mac, and an update to Native Instruments Komplete 6 to 7.  Also got to do final mix on Electronic piece…..at last!…..and start to next work on the EP.  Looking forward to the new sounds from Komplete 7 set of synthesizers…..this will help with my obsession of the particles…..and getting them into music….?

Cheers

Music Break!?

by Paul on August 19, 2010

in Electronic Music, Music

Hi All,

Mad summer thinking is here!  Everybody goes on holiday…..and stops work or other….I’ve had a break doing house stuff-painting, repaired house etc.

Looking forward to Autumn-had one or two musical ideas and recorded them on handheld tape.  Continuing with Electronic EP-have to alter some of the mixes when I get back to studio……working on third work today-few bars of drum sounds.  Maybe the recent Perseid meteor showers will inspire some ideas, although the tracks for the EP are essentially Astro-Physics and Particle Physics related.

Looking forward to more results from the Large Hadron Colider to get yet more inspiration………..!

Cheers

Composing Electronic Music

by Paul on January 27, 2010

in Electronic Music, General, Music

Hi All,

I have been busy composing tracks for the forthcoming EP today.  It is purely Electronic in feel working on the Kore 2 series of Synthesizers.  Had a good bash at it today, working out Bass parts for the 2nd half of the track, although there is a more to go.  The sound is spacey though up front in parts with a good synth lead sound that I have designed.  Just as I was getting it deep, I had to give up due to the daughter ringing me for a lift 🙂

Having a night out with the 3 stooges (Ian Boddy, Marcus Howarth & me) tomorrow night!-a music seminar ending in the most important part-a curry!

Cheers

Paul 🙂

Hi All,

I’d like to introduce you to Musiczeit.com who are purveyors of Hi Quality downloadable music.  I now have posted 4 albums Cosmic Renditions, Storm, Chthonic Netherworld, and Easy Street up for download.  The site claim to be the only one worldwide where you can download albums at full CD Lossless quality and 256K mp3 quality-here’s what they have to say:

“We all jumped for joy when CD came along, right? Great sound quality, no scratches, no messing about. So now what’s happening? Download music is everywhere, and CD is being put out to pasture. But wait, there’s a catch. Most download music is “lossy”. And this means inferior sound quality to CD. MP3, AAC, WMA. It’s all lossy.

We at MusicZeit.com believe you should have the best of both worlds. Instant download access to the music you want, but no loss of quality. That’s why all our albums are available in lossless CD quality as well as top-notch 256K MP3 if you want to listen to things “on the move”. And we don’t do individual tracks. Like you, we feel the music needs to be heard in context, as part of a full album or EP.

You don’t have to compromise in the digital download era. Let your kids get their “quick track fix” on other sites, while you download the full album, full artwork, in full CD quality, from MusicZeit.com

Full albums. Full artwork. Full CD quality. The only way.”

Perhaps they have a persuasive  argument?  As a composer of music and not spending a lot of hours listening, I’m not sure whether I can comment authoritatively .  I swing between the thought that mp3 at the low end sample rate, is all that most people are interested in, and, that maybe those who can be bothered to buy music are more discerning than I think.  Speaking personally, I was always interested in as high a quality of sound that I could get.  This has carried over to my compositional side where I follow the ‘holy grail’ of top recording quality  as standard.  Does that make me a an audiophile?-I don’t think so in that I am thinking of the people that would be listening, and hoping that the high end quality that is available relatively easily makes the listening experience a joy-drawing scenes and pictures that only a few decades ago were unheard of.

Returning to musiczeit-good on you and I am sure that the idea will catch-on.  You get full CD quality, artwork and at good rates…there is a market here!
