Upcoming Music: Stopscape and Karramantha



Out on August 12 on Itsu Jitsu, Can't Quite Recall is an experimental abstract soundscape that's been in the making for a while, with bits and pieces of it appearing in all my previous mixes. But its now finally seeing a release thanks to Jason Kavanagh! It's the first one under the Stopscape alias, a name I'd like to use again sometime.



Cover is a work in progress.

The next Loose Link related release is Karramantha, a glitch-step collaboration with Option Command. It will feature tracks by us plus many different awesome remixes, so far including FSOLboard natives Ross Baker, Noisesurfer and cubus. Tracks are still being worked on and many more remixes are forthcoming hopefully! Here's a preview:

The Original Karramantha, work in progress:
http://soundcloud.com/loose-link/loose-command-karramantha

['tima] Remix:
http://soundcloud.com/timmesound/loose-command-karramantha-my

Dinimiciúla Duo Remix:
http://soundcloud.com/user3900659/dinimici-la-duo-remix

Sven Meyer Remix:
http://soundcloud.com/sven-meyer/loose-command-karramantha-sven

I'm on the look out for more remixes too, so if you'd like to have a go give me a message and download the sample pack:
http://www.mediafire.com/?ia2z32bvnbbwx2r

This release doubles as a soundtrack to a science fiction animation I'm working on. A prequel of sorts to a much larger story I've had in my head for ages. It will be a flash animation and it will be posted at places like Vimeo and youtube. The cover of the album is one frame I'm working on from the animation.

One more thing... Junk Moon progress: its getting there.

Two Current Animated Projects


Even though I'm thinking about many, I am currently working on two different animated projects, one is Gospels From The Ark: Junk Moon with Kate Ann Morris, and the other is Secret Agent Blokes with Shining Dove.

Episode 1 of Junk Moon is charging along quite nicely, the trailer for that was well received.

Secret Agent Blokes will eventually come in two forms, one of them being a three to five minute pilot episode. Shining and I have started a blog to track its total process. You'll be able to read more of what its about there, plus have looks at the script, storyboards, draft and eventually finished glimpses of animation, character designs and more. It will be updated over time, if you are an animator, musician, fx, editor or writer then extra help is very welcome:

Songs of the Emptying Race: Second Thought Remixed

The Second Thought Remix album, which feature's Loose Link's remix of "Kelpie" is now available to download for free on the Bumpfoot Japanese netlabel, 19 tracks, 108 minutes long:

http://www.bumpfoot.net/foot170.html

We don't need no steeeenkin' cds!


Loose Link - Electron Mace EP



Out now on Jerky Oats, my new 13 track "EP":

"Loose Link's second release, the Electron Mace EP charts a gradual move away from his debut album, towards a more fractured sound, with samples, loops and beats fitting together in a less logical, more abstract manner. The first five tracks are all reworkings by Loose Link himself, while the second half of the package finds remixes in various styles, from the Euro-dance leanings of Dinimiciúla Duo, Option Command's more modern computer cool, cubus and Human
Robot's ambience, Second Thought's acid house and Flying Battery's computer catchy computer game jingle."

01. Electron Mace (Original)
02. Electron Mace (Chaotic Sweep)
03. Electron Mace (Engine)
04. Electron Mace (Pitch Hits)
05. Electron Mace (Exact Extracts)
06. Electron Mace (Sven Meyer Remix)
07. Electron Mace (Option Command Remix)
08. Electron Mace (Second Thought Remix)
09. Electron Mace (cubus Remix)
10. Electron Mace (Clockwork Keyboard Remix)
11. Electron Mace (Dinimiciúla Duo Remix)
12. Electron Mace (Flying Battery Remix)
13. Electron Mace (Human Robot Interaction Remix)

Very humbling to have your own tracks remixed by other people, especially if those people are from many corners of the globe (Ireland, the UK, Australia, USA, Spain and Germany). Very exciting release, and it's free to download!:

This is dedicated to those lost in the devastating Christchurch Quake that hit on February the 22nd, 167 confirmed dead so far...

Clockwork Keyboard - Watch The Clock EP



A collaboration between me and Joachim Rontxelius from Spain, what started off as a simple request to collaborate on a song for Random Proportions has turned into a full fledged project, which starts here. Close to 30 minutes of sweeping Clockscapes and toetapping Keybeats. This multi-part EP serves as a preview of what lies ahead, watch your clock...


"Composed deep within Keyclock Station, the Watch the Clock EP starts the journey, between brothers J. Drone from Spain and C. Channel from New Zealand, to collaborate and export different musical ideas using various equipment, the ever expanding wastebins of time (as one wiseman once put it) and USSR issued VST keyboards from Mars! More to come, Peace and Love!"

Terminal Window



Available as a free download from Jerky Oats Records: Terminal Window - The FSOLBoard Album. Created and collected together into one sweeping weird and wonderful soundscape. 14 beautiful photographs taken by Pandemonium accompany the album, not looking too far from ready to be printed into a sell-able CD.

"Terminal Window is a music project from FSOLBoard, a community of Future Sound of London fans on the internet. Artists on the board were invited to contribute tracks and collaborations to
the album, given nothing but the title Terminal Window. The final record holds together incredibly well as an individual album, merging ambient breaks from the likes of Loose Link and Noisesurfer with more traditional ambience of Off Land and cubus, and more experimental sounds from Herd and Full-Source. This wide range of styles, knitted together into a single journey, leaves the album sounding not a million miles away from FSOL themselves."

01. Noisesurfer - Undomain
02. Loose Link - Electromagnetic Sound Nursery
03. cubus - Ratsshake tramadol Pseuccele
04. Herd - Tangent 43
05. Clockwork Keyboard - Clockwork Freakout
06. Second Thought - 1801-F.Deletion
07. Off Land - 13th Century Kitichi
08. Noisesurfer - Journey to the Moon
09. Full-Source - Nothing Days
10. Herd - Terminal Window
11. Second Thought - First Understanding
12. Clockwork Keyboard - Techwork Horror
13. Loose Link - Design Defect
14. Herd & Second Thought - Combiner
