my bruddha

March 26th, 2007 § 0 comments § permalink

My older brother and I are in mutual-admiration mode (my younger brother's admiration will be coming in a month when he's done his computer animation programme at Sherdian).

Andrew (Mental Floss) recently released a remix of one of the most awesomest Aphex Twin tracks, from Ambient Works II. Follow the link to the original, because I'm not sure that I would have been able to make the connection on my own. What I love about this track is how unashamedly ravey it is, especially considering its origins.

And, since we're on the subject of my brother's music, you should listen to Earthtones, a trance track which somehow still manages to stand up, twelve years later.

Where am I? Vague Terrain Locative

I'm pleased to announce that my work on the latest issue of vague terrain has come to fruition. I was asked to guest-edit an issue on mobile technologies, which subsequently became locative technologies.

Check out the issue, and the fabulous projects. And by all means, let me know what you think.
