Ello stands out as a shining light for design– an exemplary visual playground– when you stand back and survey the internet. But it's not only that. Sound and music give the internet warm and life, as Thomas Dolby reminded us in the early 90's; acoustics are a major feature of the network.
As a sound artist, curator, DJ, and listener I'll be crate-digging through the depths of Ello's archive to feature the most compelling sonic work being showcased on the platform if chosen to serve as a guest editor. Along the way we'll encounter wandering field recordists, learn what modular synthesis is, party with algoravers, and explore new frameworks for delivering audio on the web. In doing so, we'll make the argument that Ello can do for sound what it did for graphic web design if only we open our ears and give it a chance.
To start off, lets check out Szabolcs Szűcs (@grault)'s live-coding excursion in Tidal, Haskell, and Supercollider (implementing Superdirt). These are frameworks and tools becoming increasingly popular in the live-coding/algorave (algorithmic rave) communities:
Next, it's over to Detroit Underground (@detund), one of the most visually compelling record labels on Ello, and their new release by LODSB:
Straight from the underground.
Last, but not least, lets take a listen to the newest episode from the fledgling mix series, Abstract without Abstraction (@AWOA), which showcases voices from throughout the histories of electronic music [shameless disclaimer: I help curate the series! ]
Sometimes you just need something good to listen to at work.
Until next time, keep listening. xoxo, @elloguesteditor
