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 disappointed as well as the Scientists with the news that the LHC is to close for modifications for a year at the end of 2011.  It is to address design issues.  Joints between the machines magnets must be strengthened to cope with the 14Tev the higher operating state.  As a musician and composer, this affects directly my ‘ inspiration source’ for the work that I am currently producing.  This is the exploration and interpretation of  particle collisions and fields through Music.  So far, I have been able to examine with two tracks, the effects of Fields and collisions.  I find want to interpret the collision and the resulting spin.  In a lecture at the Darlington Astronomy club the other day, it was said that some Gamma Ray particles have the equivalent energy of a tennis ball travelling at 100mph!  Imagine one sub-atomic particle having that much power/kick!  How can I replicate that with Music?  I have some idea’s.  I work out the idea’s sometimes a bit graphically, or imagine what the equivalent in music would be say-a spinning particle would have a known frequency or pitch.  Though the spinning particle might have a far higher frequency of spin than can be replicated by a note, you can down size the frequency and using a representative note-frequency, approximate all other spins to their relative frequencies.  Fields might be represented by held chords and so on…..further using Synths and orchestral arrangements etc to create the piece.  I hope this gives a little insight into the methods used at times for inspiration…..

Cheers….

Mixing the Music?

by Paul on March 5, 2010

Hi There,

I’m mixing tracks for the Electronic EP I’m doing.  It has the highest number of track counts so far for this EP.  It is an exploration of the future including spacey sounds and particle Physics level stuff-brilliant.

I released another album on march 3rd-Chthonic Netherworld. This is fully Electronic with synths using the excellant Kore 2 system with Komplete 6 set of Native Intruments series of Plugins.  It is Space orientated with again melodic stuctures and a sense of exploration of the further reaches of the Universe-I loved writing it as it a particular interest area of mine aside other things.  You will be able to get it off www.itunes.com/paulstokes and www.believe.fr/albums/52696.cosimc-renditions.html or hear it at it at: www.downloadplatform.com/paul_stokes and released in 260 countries-enjoy.

Cheers

Free Internet Music?

by Paul on September 5, 2009

No-if you saw a painting in a shop window, you wouldn’t expect the artist to walk up to you and give it to you free-he has spent many hours crafting it, thinking about it, putting it on canvass-work done. Why  is the shop window of the Internet any different? I can see no argument that works-do you?  Yes there me ‘tasters’ as when people give away samples of cake in a cake shop, but the bulk of the work is paid for-you wouldn’t expect the whole cake as a taster!

Nature expects a return-even bacteria have a symbiotic relationship with a fungus they live inside of-the fungus gets something, and the bacteria also gets something-mutually helpful!  Life isn’t free!

79 pence for a track as on itunes is also up for grabs-I personally think it is on the low side but that is not for this blog today.
