It's an Analog world...by Alain Hubert

YouTube via AlainHubert | March 21, 2010

"Another short synthesizer music piece, by me...Only one of the keyboards shown is not a real analog but a virtual one, can you spot which one?
This music video was a tribute to my synthesizer music mentors: Giorgio Moroder, Jean-Michel Jarre, Wendy Carlos, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, just to name a few... And of course Robert A. Moog and Walter Sear for bringing analog synthesizers to the music scene.
Thanks for watching."

Synths used:
Minimoog Voyager Old School
Korg Mono/Poly
Korg DW8000
Alesis Ion (I know it's only a virtual analog, but it's a really good one)
Boss DR-110 analog drum machine

"Just wanted to let you know about my latest solo project, "Micro-Jams", which is a series of bite-size songs, in various styles. There are currently 10 micro-jams, and they are available for free at my bandcamp page:
Of particular synth interest: the track "Micro-Funkin'" was made mostly with the Stylophone Beatbox (plus a few iPhone apps), and the track "Mean Man" features a vintage Stylophone."

"El joven Kaleth, aprendiz del dancehall y la vía rastafari, finalmente está listo para dominar el paso secreto y centenario del dancehall que acerca a quienes lo conocen a la reina del Pum pum shot. Huba, su maestro, teme lo inminente de su propia muerte, y así se lo hace saber. La suerte está echada. Y, a final de cuentas, Sirtaker es solo un mensajero más de Babylon.

[Googlish: "The young Kaleth, apprentice and route dancehall Rastafarian, is finally ready to master the secret passage and the centenary of the dancehall that comes to those who know the queen of Pum pum shot.

The Simonsound

<a href="http://thesimonsound.bandcamp.com/album/reverse-engineering">Tour De Mars by The Simonsound</a>
"Words can be no substitute for the aural experience, but if you will have
words, The Simonsound¹s first album, ³Reverse Engineering², offers an
intriguing variety of sounds, including ¹50s and ¹60s-inspired space music,
mood music for film and TV, haunting vocal tracks, and switched-on cover
versions of classics realised on the Moog synthesiser.

Matt and Simon both cite Dick Hyman¹s crazy Moog take on James Brown¹s ³Give
it up or Turn it Loose² as a big inspiration, representing the perfect
meeting of experimental electronics and solid rhythm section. They created
their own homage to it with a take on the classic b-boy anthem, ³It¹s Just
Begun² by The Jimmy Castor Bunch, replacing the original¹s soulful vocals,
gritty rhythm and horn sections with heavy Moog synthesiser and electronic
sounds that place you firmly in outer space. Their interpretation of Bob
James¹ much sampled classic, ³Nautilus², also adds vibraphone, treated
percussion and tape effects. Meanwhile ³Baker's Dozen² uses the sound of a
cork being popped from an empty bottle of gin as its main instrument, taking
inspiration from the work of BBC Radiophonic Workshop composer John Baker,
famous for taking everyday sounds and creating music with them. The
Simonsound didn¹t rely solely on machines, inviting vocalist Debbie Clare to
collaborate on several tracks, resulting in ³Bad Love², ³Between the Wake
and the Sleep² and ³Call of the Siren². Further tracks on the album explore
the kind of instrumental music you might have heard in the background of
Œ60s and Œ70s cult TV shows or adverts."
