John Foxx/Steve D'Agostino/Alex Proyas

YouTube via JohnFoxxMetamatic — May 26, 2010 — "This is a two minute segment of Parallel Lives - a new cut-up collaboration between John Foxx, underground film-maker and musician Steve D'Agostino and movie director Alex Proyas, whose credits include I, Robot, Dark City and The Crow.
The new work will be screened at the Roundhouse on 5 June, just before Foxx's analogue electronic set.
According to Alex Proyas, 'If only my 18 year old self could've seen his film with an original John Foxx soundtrack he would've been beside himself with excitement . . . hell, my 48 year old self is pretty impressed too! Just wonderful.'
The short is a cut-up of Proyas's 1980 film Groping, set to a reworked version of the Foxx 1980 B-side 'Film One'.
I think apart from his incredibly cinematic lyrics, John's music has always conjured entire movies in my head when I listen to it,' says Proyas. 'I think it is his mastery of atmosphere that has stayed with me through the years. If I could only make a movie as textured and evocative as Johns music I would be a happy man."

Futuristication (Gregsynth Song)

YouTube via Gregsynth — May 14, 2010 — "After a long break from music (mostly related to my other 2 channels, and writer's block), I have finally (after dozens of recording sessions) composed a new song entitled "Futuristication." This song features the synthesizer as a prominent instrument (LOL), and I started to experiment with more arpeggiator/sequencer effects--plus a new idea called "Bit-Crusher." What that does is: It takes the sound I'm using (the drum tracks) and compresses the sound down from 1400 kb/s (recording quality), down to levels such as 32 kb/s (think of FLAC to Mp3 converting, but in a MUCH bigger level). It greatly distorts the sound, but it can lead to some very "robotic" and interesting results and effects! Enjoy!!


* Tons of synthesizers (Arp Oddity, Automat 1, and various samples of Old-School analog synths)

* Effects: Phasing, Flanging, Chorus, Tremolo, Delay, Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Bit-Crusher.

Note: I borrowed the bass-line from the rock band Queen's song "Dancer." Hope they don't sue me!
