Sauna Sounds Cover Album

Hey MetaFilter, I have put together an 'album' of short covers I recorded between 2009 and 2011. Most of them I have posted to Music MetaFilter in the past, but I thought it would be fun to wrap them together a bit and hopefully it will inspire me to record more again. Includes guitar, bowed banjo, pump organ, harmonica, piano, whistling etc. [more inside]

GROKTAR

I'm looking for feedback on a guitar learning website I've been working on. First of all, it turns guitar tabs you find on the internet into music. Second, it's a general scratchpad for playing around with chords or scales and learning the fretboard. Third, you can share music and lessons with your friends. [more inside]

18 genuine Victorian gallows ballads recorded by today's musicians

Well, it’s taken me over a year to do it, but I’ve now managed to persuade modern rock, folk and blues musicians to record all 16 of the genuine Victorian gallows ballads which I started researching back in 2011 (Projects previously). You’ll find a Soundcloud set compiling the whole "album" linked above, and details of the individual songs below. Each track is a collaboration across more than 100 years, as singers and bands from Britain, America and Australia add their own music to the original 19th century lyrics. Each track's Soundcloud entry has a link taking you to the true story behind that particular ballad. [more inside]

The Awesome Boys- Sub Cauda EP

I recorded a 6-song EP through much of 2012. Struggling to define it, I guess I'd come up with "ambitious garage rock." I guess this is music that draws equally from the Flaming Lips and Guided By Voices, maybe? Not really. But that's a start. Lots of guitars and Korg Kaossilator. Songs can be streamed or downloaded at the URL above; if SoundCloud's more your thing, you can stream most of the album (except for a Bowie cover) there.

Raging Titter Radio

This is probably as honest as I’ll ever be about what I’m trying to accomplish with my podcast, Raging Titter Radio. I have always had a lot of thoughts and I’m often overwhelmed by them. Since I was a kid, I imagined my thoughts as balloons, too many comic books I suppose. Anyway, I try to chase them down and grab them before they float away forever. The easiest way to hang onto them is to tie the strings together. If I can tie enough balloons together, I can float away. That’s Raging Titter Radio. Oh and there’s always a top notch indie band playing a great song that's thematically relevant. [more inside]

Brad Sucks - Guess Who's a Mess

I posted some of the early demos for my third record to Metafilter Music and then took forever finishing it. But it's done now! Done and in my past! Pay what you want (including zero dollars) on my website, stream it on Spotify/Rdio or grab it on iTunes, the choice is literally yours.

Maseno Maths Camp video

This is a video about a math camp in Maseno, Kenya, that I've helped coordinate for the last two years. The idea is to give secondary school students a new perspective on mathematics, and expose teachers to activity-based teaching methods. We're aiming to get across the idea that math is about the concepts rather than the drills, understanding rather than mindless computation, beauty rather than grades. The video runs about 13 minutes, but there's a catchy song at the beginning to rope you in and get the idea across more quickly. Finally, there's a blog post here outlining a bit of the work we've been up to this year. [more inside]

"Please Tell Me Where's Her Head": Pearl Bryan in song & story

PlanetSlade's been writing about Murder Ballads for quite some time now (previously 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Now I've placed the site's first book-length offering on the Kindle store, where you'll find it at the link above. If by any chance you'd like to buy a copy, that would make me very happy. Robert Wilhelm at Murder By Gaslight called the book "very impressive", and the crime scene's local paper rated it "truly a fascinating read". British readers should go to this Amazon.co.uk page instead.

Randophonic - a radio show's blog

Randophonic is a blog for a music-based radio show that airs weekly (most weeks anyway) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9, Vancouver, Canada (University of British Columbia). Podcast links are easily accessible via the site. Since November-2011, Randophonic's main focus has been the All Vinyl Countdown + Apocalypse (the 1,111 Greatest Records You Probably Haven't Heard), as selected by Philip Random over ten years ago (and then he disappeared). Lately, the countdown just passed its midway point. Also, as I've just passed my 4th Anniversary as a numbered MeFite, the timing feels right to finally share this project. [more inside]

R Money Music Video

I made a music video envisioning Mitt Romney as a rapper named R Money who likes to rap about how wealthy he is. There is an interesting synchronicity between some aspects of hip hop culture and wealthy media figures like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney that make for a funny juxtaposition, I think. [more inside]

Now That's What I Call Drone: Vol. 1

With this compilation, the challenge was for musicians to create drone versions of Top 40 pop songs. The word 'drone' was to be interpreted by each artist as they saw fit. The results are varied, interesting, and pretty damn good. Pop drone psychic energy. (Yes, "Call Me Maybe" is in here.) [more inside]

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band Show

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band Show Nominated for “Best Kids’ Band for 2006″ by Time Out NY Kids Nominated for “Best New Band” by Children’s Music Web Awards “Don’t let the wigs and bright clothes fool you: The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is the closest thing to arena rock that the New York kids’ music scene has got. Its hyperactive stage show and loud, anthemlike harmonies come in part from Mike Messer’s theatrical background and from Stephen Jacobs’s love of seminal funksters Parliament-Funkadelic. Says Jacobs, ‘We want to give kids their first rock & roll experience. I had to wait until I saw Prince!’” [more inside]

Good Ache music video

After help from mefites on several questions, including this one, I have created a video for the first single on my new record. It was a lot of fun, and I would rather kill myself than ever do it again, but I think it came out well for a novice working with free software.

John Roderick Plays a Potluck

This winter, we invited John Roderick of Seattle band The Long Winters and the Roderick on the Line podcast over for a potluck dinner.

A few of those moments have been put together into a video collection called "More Than Shapes," named for a song and a story from that evening. [more inside]

Reviews and recommendations of classical music- from classic recordings to rare and obscure gems

I made EnjoyNewMusic.com to share my classical music findings from Spotify, Mog and Grooveshark (with links), as well as from my own CD collection. I'm particularly interested in unusual transcriptions and arrangements, jazz and rock re-workings of classical music, forgotten and obscure compositions, as well as essential classic recordings. My writing style is short, down-to-earth and pithy. The most recent entry is a comprehensive examination of noteworthy recordings of Bach's Chaconne, which I hope MeFites will particularly enjoy.

Instrument-a-day

Every year I spend the month of February making a new musical instrument (or vaguely musical-instrument-like-thing) every day of the month. I'm up to Day 7 of Year 5. I document each instrument on the blog, and often try to share all the construction details, plans, and so forth. The instruments-a-day range in ambition from banging a trash can with a stick to a complete working violin, depending on the time, energy, and inspiration I have each day. Some of the things I've made have been fun for a few days; some are complete garbage; and some have actually been used in performances around the world, by me and by real musicians! Although the blog posts often have more details, the flickr collection is a nice way to get an overview of the project.

ShortWaveMusic 2012: Timbuktu

A short film documenting my recent trip across the Republic of Mali to record indigenous and regional music. After the kidnappings and murder in Timbuktu in December 2011, I had forfeited all plans to go to the northern half of the country ... until the day I was piled into a 4x4, completely unplanned, and swept away to Timbuktu as the personal guest of a Malian gendarme. This film documents my early work in Mali ... and the utterly unique experiences that awaited me in Timbuktu. [more inside]

Writing code to make music to drink beer to

Live coding is the changing of rules while they are followed.

Alternatively, live coding can be a participatory experience, possibly in collaboration with others. [more inside]
