The Office shorts

I recently got myself a new camera. To learn how to use it and how to do cinematic video montage, I have been experimenting with a series of short films. While still mostly an experiment, lot of people have enjoyed the series. So, enjoy!

Filmed with GH4 and Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 Asph. Lens. Only normal office lighting, graded with Filmconvert, edited in Adobe Premiere 2014 CC.

Cly/Suva – Lost Cause

New EP by me! Five tracks of melancholic and atmospheric electronic music. Influenced by many genres including Drum and Bass, Electro, Downbeat, Industrial and New Retro Wave. While relatively slow, it does not lack in bone crushing beats and heavy basslines while still keeping the soft atmospheric touch of lush pads, chilly sweeps and beautiful melodies.. You can purchase the entire album from Remixta Store for 4 euros.

Available also on a limited edition jewel-case CD, complete with pro-printed inlays and cover art. Shipping is available worldwide, and orders are fulfilled rapidly.

The release will also be available on other digital distribution outlets such as iTunes, Spotify and Beatport later this year.

Cly/Suva – In The Wind Ep

Cly/Suva puts out his first release on Cold Fiction Music Label with a 4 track Ep filed with a hidden talent for smooth Ambient Techno and Dub Techno. The release starts off with the lush and expansive pads of the title track and moves right along into Until The Road with they Dub Techno chords and deep drums. The other 2 tracks also highlight the lush pads and deep dubby chords that Cly/Suva isn’t really known for until now. For fans of our Dub Techno and Ambient Techno releases, this is an Ep that you shouldn’t miss.

Boosh

Alphabets Heaven – Boosh review

Recently a genre loosely labelled as “organic electronic music” has gotten some of my attention after accidentally buying and reviewing a record by Robot Koch. It’s not music made from organically grown products, but a variations of instrumental hip-hop, trip hop and similar genres which take advantage of the samplers. Their ability to record pieces of live instrumentals as well as redeliver them in live nature by the human touch instead of machine programming. All this contributes to the living and breathing, “organic” sound.

Apparently my review didn’t go unnoticed to the guys from King Deluxe (a great label publishing the aforementioned genre), and they notified me of their brand new release, digital mini album by Alphabets Heaven titled Boosh.

Although, Alphabets Heaven is mostly known for his rapid beat work, video game influences and some sampler mastery, this release is dominantly chilled downtempo music with juicy basslines, deeply layered textures and solid beats. Only track that actually goes more to the crazy side with the beats is the one called “genggeng” and it even feels out of the place compared to others. Not a bad song as such, but just bit out of the context with rest of the release.

Other thing definitely worth mentioning on the release are the three excellent remixes by Headshotboyz, Robot Koch and wAgAwAgA. Really chilled and atmospheric stuff in there. My favorite being the rework of Woman by none other than Robot Koch. The remix of Darma by Headshotboyz also ends up in my list of favorite tracks from this year so far.

If you get such solid releases from digital only label (they have had one vinyl release too, but still mostly digital), you’ll know that the digital music era is in full gear. Boosh by Alphabets Heaven gets my recommendation and I also suggest you check out other stuff released by King Deluxe, as they have several other pearls in their catalogue.

Favorite tracks: Soul Dancing, Woman (rmx), Darma (rmx).

Another Spring

A week ago, I visited the german demoparty Revision. For those who do not know what a demoparty is, it’s basically a computer arts festival, with lots of cool visuals, loud music and lots of beer. I presented a web browser demo called Another Spring in this festival. I might write a little bit more about Revision later, but until then you can enjoy my entry.

Web browser demo is basically a JavaScript program which uses web browser features to create the visuals accompanied by music. My entry is of the simple kind, it displays a selection of photographs organized into sequences, with some real-time visual effects applied and everything synchronized to music. Also it has few clips of programmatical video in it.

I tried to capture some of the post-soviet atmospheres of spring in Tallinn and share them with Revision visitors. Regardless of the lack of technicality it got the second place in Web Browser Demo round and won me the Newcomer Award.

You can observe the demo on following links:
