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:

Cheers………….

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

Electronic EP has grown!

Hi All,

In my latest attempts at writing the latest Electronic track have caused me to add a bass line where there was none.  I had a brilliant drum feel to the track and thought I not need to add a bass line-so deep the ground shook–I now have to try it after experimenting!  Then come the effects bending……thought I was up to the mastering stage!!

Cheers……….Paul

Hols over…………….?

by Paul on October 2, 2010

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

Hi,

I am currently working on an area which I have never touched on in seriousness, but enjoyed others works in.  I used to be challenged by Tangerine Dream, Michael Nyman, Philip Glass and other German Ilk composers such as Ian Boddy. I am working with a Mac computer and using the Komplete 6 by Native Instruments.  This gives me the vast batch of synthesizers they give with the their package.  You are able to create almost anything you think of-and that’s a fantastic!  I use the Kore 2 synthesiser/controller which I mix the sounds with and create the atmospheres and leads.  I love it.

On the 3rd piece in the EP-Starting with the sounds imagined, I created a beautiful background phasing grunge sound, by mixing on the Kore 2-loading in selected sounds.  A sort of a Moog type lead sound was selected and twisted/EQ’d and came out wonderful.  One or two more synthy lead sounds were selected/altered.  Turning next to Drum/Aux sounds was fun, but needed extensive editing.  I pulled the sounds from all over the place from Ultrabeat in Logic Pro and Absynth/Battery/Kontakt.

I not sure what counts for experimental Electronic music, but what has been created in track 3 is not exactly where I thought I would be going in.  I seem to drift as so many do-but drifting is fun sometimes when there is no pressure from record companies or TV demands!  I know how to react to pressure and write to brief-difficult but true.  I am now at the point of the mix, and thats going to fun…..

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

Imagination Album…..

Why not try my latest Album ‘Imagination’-an Instrumental Electronic album-laid back & Cool www.downloadplatform.com/paul_stokes/

Imagination was conceived by Paul Stokes as a Studio album (Glenmoor Studio’s) containing undercurrents of classical though remaining stronglyFront300Pix Electronic and New Age.  This is a release from his back catalogue where it is going to be more widely available for download.  It is being released by BelieveDigital on many download platforms.  Being well received by the public previously on a smaller scale, more people will be able to enjoy the album on major download platforms.  In small trials, Imagination has had critical acclaim by the public when played on Internet and Capital Radio etc.

Paul Stokes-Herbst (Paul Stokes) track record includes being in bands and writing music for the Media and solo albums.  His music can now be found in many countries around the world on film, shorts, advertising etc.  Crossrythmns says “here can be found a pile of influences coming together to make something new”. Imagination is Electronica but is Sc-Fi influenced, with crossing of musical boundaries, creating pleasant but creatively inspiring themes.  It will pull you out and in!

You are invited to explore perhaps deep parallel worlds or deep intertwining themes which will cause you chase dreams……in your head……  The album is available from most reputable digital download stores including itunes/Musiczeit/BelieveDigital and hundreds of  others.  Contact details follow below:
