You asked for it – you’ve got it. It’s the biggest hits of orchestrions, street organs, fairground music, and mechanical tunes, from the 17th Century, 20th century, and yesterday. Oh, you didn’t ask for that? Well… you get it anyway. “We’ve picked the most iconic instruments...

Composers. You’ve seen them literally put on pedestals, in bronze and granite. Here they are in daily life – and it’s charming. Yes, it’s “Composers doing normal s***”, and in the midst of truly grotesque things on Twitter, it’s the breath of fresh air we need right now....

It seems the legends are true – there really was LSD added to vintage synths. A Bay Area, California Buchla 100 reportedly triggered an acid trip decades later. Allegedly, anyway. The equipment in question is a Buchla Model 100, 1960s vintage – the modular that defined what...

If you need a break from buttoned-up techno, dance music as business and fashion statement and morose wallpaper – take a holiday with some “trippy mindfkk-muzzikkk.” Here, we’ve got 170 tracks from 1991 Cologne to today to get utterly weird. In 1990s Cologne, if the techno...

Forget analog pedals or digital boxes – 10cars have made a series of electro-acoustic inventions covered in wires and springs. And they sound wild and strange. “10cars” is a Berlin-based multimedia artist. He presented these works at the mighty trade show Superbooth, but th...

Its creator describes it as a “workshop in a plug-in.” Mozaic lets you turn your iOS device into a MIDI filter/controller that does whatever you want – a toolkit for making your own MIDI gadgets. Oh yeah and it’s just US$6.99, which is absurd but awesome. The beauty of this,...

KORG has already shown that opening up oscillators and effects to developers can expand their minilogue and prologue keyboards. But now they’re doing the same for the nutekt NTS-1 – a cute little volca-ish kit for synths and effects. Build it, make wild sounds, and … run...

Here’s techno as it’s lived in the moment – the actual improvised grooves of nine years of live sets, echoed as a flood of glitchy, modem-like sounds from a war-tested Alesis MMT-8 sequencer. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Shawn Rudiman may not be a household name in the age of...
