I’m conscious that there’s been very little cubus based releases for quite a while now aside from various remixes. Hopefully this’ll change in the very near future. I miss making music.
Not quite sure why I didn’t post this on here before as it was one of the most impressive things I’d seen last year.
Here’s a video taken from a 4Kb demo by the masters of coding Quite & orange featuring music by Dune (aka Brothomstates / Lassi Nikko ). Although this is not the final version (which can be viewed here), it’s definitely my favourite. How so much visual and sonic beauty can be created in the space of something only a little bit larger than this message boggles the mind.

“A brief glimpse of Daphne Oram’s pioneering and unique Oramics synthesizer, designed in 1957 after she left the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop to pursue the project.
This short film features Dr Mick Grierson, Director of The Daphne Oram Collection, acquiring the synthesizer from a collector in 2009.
The machine is now in the hands of The Science Museum in London and is currently being restored. It hasn’t been performed with since the 1970s. ”

I would so love a real orchestra to try and recreate this incredible track … (or for Christopher Reeves to officially release it in non-Youtube sound quality at least !)
(Update: This was later released on the album Hiding Places – http://gasmanmusic.com/hidingplace.html )
A lovely video for a lovely track on a lovely album. You can pick yourself up a copy here – boomkat.com (other explosive felines are available)
