Reader Rupert Lally shared with us a new suite of electronic music, that was inspired by early experimental electronic albums, Vangelis’ Blade Runner OST and Boards Of Canada.
The music, Postcards From A Used Future, is a collaboration between Lally and Norwegian electronic artist and filmmaker, Espen J. Jörgensen. It was composed for CiTR radio in Canada’s 24 Hours of Radio Art. Continue reading
Sunday Synth Jam: This is the music video for Diana, a symphonic electronica track by Peter Irock.
Sound designer Luftrum has released this sneak preview of Luftrum 9 – a soundbank for u-He Diva:

Reader Mitsushi Abe let us know about this fantastic DIY project – an Ondes Martenot MIDI Controller.
Abe, who describes himself as “an amateur geek living in Tokyo”, loves to make DIY instruments. He used an Arduino to control the Korg Legacy Collection Mono/Poly software synth.
OT: This is a bit off topic – but this video captures the world premiere of Elegy for Cello and Orchestra, new composition by Vangelis presented in Moscow, Vivacello Festival, September 27th, 2011.
No synths and no appearance by Vangelis. He wrote the Elegy specifically for this festival.
Sunday Synth Jam: We’re not sure about this history of this Vangelis synth jam, which VideoheadsNL places in his Paris studio around the time of his sessions for the album See you Later.
The video is marred by some bizarre zoom effects and by the Videoheads Amsterdam logotype.
In spite of that, the video is epic, capturing a young, bare-chested Vangelis improvising a neo-classical orchestral electronica symphony. It many ways, the music is unlike anything in his recorded output – except for the way the music seems to spring fully formed from Vangelis’ imagination.
Check this bit of electronic music history out – and let us know what you think of it!
