Doctor Who's Sonic Pioneers Will Turn the Internet Into a Giant Musical Instrument

"The Radiophonic Workshop has always broken new sonic ground, from the Doctor Who theme to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Now they're at it again — this time using the internet as a musical instrument," reports the Guardian. "The band includes composers from the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which created soundtracks for most BBC shows from the 60s to the 90s and influenced generations of musicians from Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd and Mike Oldfield to Aphex Twin, Orbital and Mary Ep...

"Tubular Bells" live in 1973

Mike Oldfield performs Tubular Bells live on the BBC in 1973. The first release on Richard Branson's new Virgin Records, Tubular Bells became a huge success after film director William Friedkin cast off the Lalo Schifrin score for his new film The Exorcist and went with "Tubular Bells (Part One)" instead. At the time, Oldfield said he didn't want to see the film because it was too scary.

If you were watching episode 8 of Twin Peaks on Sunday night, you might still be recovering from an overdose of uncut, pure David Lynch. We’re not here to summarize the episode but instead to point to the musical accompaniment to one of the most startling sequences in all of the director’s filmography: The slow tracking aerial shot into the heart of the first nuclear test mushroom cloud, right into the middle of hell itself (see below). Although Angelo Badalamenti is back on board as the...

The New Millenium - When Technology Replaced Talent

Today, one cannot possibly record a typical album without tens of thousands of dollars of equipment, gadgets, pedals, auto-tune and a myriad of other technologies. Mixing boards consisting of various filters, equalizers, 128 or more channels all feeding digital recorders with the same number of channels. Artists and musicians can be recording each of their respective parts individually -- often in different recording studios and even hundreds of miles apart. That is the evolution of the music...

trippythakid - Lit (Prod. by bucket 桶)

The initial flavour of ‘Lit’ is reminiscent of ‘Tubular Bells’ by Mike Oldfield, and then it appears trap making a new texture. Not the first time Bucket桶 surprises us. He’s a trap producer from Canada, always investing in… (in post trippythakid & Bucket桶 from MusicMap. More by this artist at )

It is Necessary to Spend a Fortune Recording an Album?

Recently I have read comments by several artists regarding the high costs of recording an album today. All the engineers, the super expensive equipment, all the digital elementa, time and, of course the talent. This got me to thinking about some of the best albums that I own. Albums on Deutsche Grammophon, albums by extremely talented artists like Mike Oldfield and, all those wonderful albums from the '60s through the '80s. I worked with, repaired and restored vintage tape decks by TEAC, Robe...
