Piano mit nur einer Taste im Browser spielen: Touchpianist

Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-06 um 07.41.50

Touchpianist ist eine kurzweilige Browser-Spielerei von Batuhan Bozkurt, bei der man mit nur einer Taste des Rechners klassische Piano-Sound zum Laufen bringen kann. „Spielen“ ist etwas übertrieben, Spaß macht es dennoch. Gibt es auch als App für IOS – für unterwegs.

Touch Pianist is a musical toy / instrument that allows the user to perform hard-to-play classical piano music favorites (from composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Satie, Debussy to name a few) just by tapping the rhythm of the piece’s particular sound events on a computer keyboard or a touch screen. It also provides live visualisation of the pieces that are being performed. There is no score keeping, the user is free to perform the music in any way they wish. The premise is that it is really fun to perform a piece you know well, exactly like you feel it with so little effort.

Sturm über Meck-Pomm

Nicht nur laut meiner Filterbubble ballerte heute ein ordentlicher Sturm über Meck-Pomm hinweg. Alter!

Hier ein waschechter, wenn auch kleiner, Tornado vom Ursprung bis zur Auflösung. Aufgenommen in Rampe, bei Schwerin.

Shit happens: Frisches Gekacktes

Kleine Werbepanne in Kleve, die am Ende für mehr Aufmerksamkeit sorgen dürfte, als die eigentlich angeblich angedachte Idee. Frisches Gehacktes für 0,39 Euro bei 100 Gramm überliest sich halt auch schnell. Metzger Lothar Quartier nimmt es mit Humor. Shit happens. Hat er ja auch gute Gründe für. Läuft ja.

Lothar Quartier nimmt den Fehler auf seine eigene Kappe: „Ich habe den Text freigegeben. Es ist letztlich ein blöder Buchstabe. Aber das kann passieren.“ Bei einem Werbefachunternehmen sei der Fehler passiert, er habe es aber Korrektur gelesen und frei gegeben. Dass die Metzgerei den Fehler mit Absicht gemacht hat, um Aufmerksamkeit zu bekommen, weist Quartier von sich: „Nein, das war gewiss nicht unsere Absicht“.

Roots & Dub: FACT mix 494 – Colleen

Ein fantastischer Roots Reggae & Dub Mix, den Cécile ‚Colleen‘ Schott hier für FACT gemixt hat. Läuft hier schon seit zwei Tagen im Repeat-Mode.

The French composer has been releasing records for over 10 years, including the classic The Golden Morning Breaks and Les Ondes Silencieuses. Her recent work, however, has arguably been her best. 2013’s The Weighing of the Heart, the first Colleen record to put her vocals centre-stage, was described by FACT’s John Twells as „40 minutes of economic, uncluttered and most importantly unique music“, while this year’s Captain of None is perhaps her most ambitious record to date: an ode to dub-reggae that’s more bass and vocal-driven than her previous work.

Colleen’s FACT mix is a companion piece of sorts to Captain of None, and focuses on music that „has specifically influenced“ the album, „mostly from the point of view of song-writing, interpretation, production, or just a general “feel” in the music, for lack of a better word.“

„No other song“, Colleen tells us, „encapsulates how these various aspects of music-making are intertwined in Jamaican music better than Burning Spear’s ‚Door Peeper‘. Released in 1969, the combination of Burning Spear’s voice, percussion, compressed horn line, minimal instrumentation and lyrics, and dry but deep production make this song one of the most earth-shaking I’ve ever heard. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Scientist’s ‚Dangerous Match 1‘ from 1982 sounds like underwater swimming in weird waters and shows how abstract and stylized Jamaican music can be.“ Elsewhere on the mix, examples of „crazy tape manipulation“, „radical production“ and „killer basslines“ remind us just how much even the more outsider side of today’s music owes to dub.

Colleen’s FACT mix closes with Lee Perry’s ‚Return of the Super Ape, a track that she „heard in my childhood. [It was] one of the many Lee Perry/Upsetters songs contained on a tape that my parents bought in the late 70s and which we played in the car on long trips. To this day I just love this track and still find it totally unique and one of a kind: you can never be sure of what it is that you’re hearing on this song: monkeys, spanners falling on the floor in a metal house, a jazz band lost in Jamaica, soap bubbles transformed into notes… before one of the best breaks and song finales of all time.“
