Stevie Wonder and His Dream Machines

quote [ The resulting pedal, the Mu-Tron Biphase, provided the foundation for multiple genres. If you put the Biphase over a snare or a hi-hat, out came the recognizable deep-space chk-chk-chk echo of dub reggae. The BiPhase was crucial to generating Lee ?Scratch? Perry?s otherworldly sound. In the ?90s, the most famous user of Mu-Tron Biphase was Billy Corgan. ]

On the magic multi-tone machines of the 70s and their eccentric manipulators.

Happy May Day!

quote [ "The Internationale" (French: "L'Internationale", [l???.t??]) is a left-wing anthem. It has been a standard of the socialist movement since the late nineteenth century, when the Second International adopted it as its official anthem. The title arises from the "First International", an alliance of workers which held a congress in 1864. The author of the anthem's lyrics, Eugne Pottier, an anarchist, attended this congress. In turn, the song was later set to an original melody composed by Pierre De Geyter, a Marxist.

It is one of the most universally translated anthems in history. ]

Happy May/Labor Day! Oh, wait, this is awkward... Unless you're in the US, in which case it's Loyalty Day, which should probably be raising from red flags in your mind. (And not the good kind.)

quote [ My favourite: a band named brouillard, with a single member called brouillard, whose every single album is named brouillard, and of course, so is every single track. ]

Luigi Russolo?s Cacophonous Futures

quote [ What does the future sound like? In the early 20th century, one answer rang out from Luigi Russolo?s intonarumori ? lever-operated machines designed to pop, sough, shriek, and shock. Peter Tracy explores the ambitions behind Italian Futurism?s experiments with noise and the sensory, spiritual, and political affinities of this radical new music. ]
