Dynamic Range Day - March 25th



Many of you are probably familiar with the 'Loudness War' phenomenon, in which tracks are ever more compressed in order to sound 'big' or 'loud', at the expense of dynamic range (the quiet bits vs. the loud bits). If you don't know what it is...go have a look at the video linked above! The folks behind Dynamic Range Day have declared war on the loudness war and nominated March 25th as a day to bear in mind the dynamics of your music...there's a bunch of info over at their site, including a nifty competition... Go. Now!

Voltage


Just liked this little vid.

"Just like modular synthesizers, people connect with each other in order to achieve diverse objectives. In Voltage, robots, half-human and half-synthesizer, powered by a huge amount of energy, connect to each other in an electric and chaotic trance." - thanks to Defekt for sending it my way.
