The VOICE Are Coming To Our Studio!

It's a wee bit random and totally unexpected; we were contacted by a producer at ITV this week asking Drip Dry/Beat This to host an informal audition for The VOICE UK at Chime Creation Centre! Yes they are coming to Peterborough in search of singers for their TV show!

THE VOICE ARE COMING TO CHIME CREATION CENTRE, UNIT A THE COURTYARD, NORFOLK ST. PETERBOROUGH, PE1 2NP
ON MONDAY 6TH MAY (BANK HOLIDAY) FROM 11:30AM - 1:30PM.

They heard some of the music coming out on the label (Drip Dry) and were really impressed with the high standard of material being written and performed by clearly a very talented bunch of musical artists living in an around Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.

We like to call Drip Dry a non-genre specific label, we record, mix and produce anything from rap and grime to folk, rock opera and thrash metal! - you name it, we do it. We are all about developing artists and giving them a push in the right direction, so although this is a little out of our 'zone' the studio owners, Beat This and ourselves thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to say YES and host the auditions as we feel that it could potentially help some singers along on their musical pathway and spread the word out this amazing Community Music space called Chime.

So if you or anyone you know would like to take part in the VOICE please read the poster below carefully, you will have to contact paige.howard@itv.com to book your place.

Opaque's Film 'To Liechtenstein With Love' is OUT NOW

It's 2018 and already the band Opaque are already busy promoting something new, exciting and slightly unusual :) . Check out the brand new documentary about their quest to become Liechtenstein’s favourite band...

"An unsigned band from England decided to try and make it big in one of the smallest countries on the planet."

To find out how we all did, watch 'To Liechtenstein With Love'.

What a fantastic film! Feeling so grateful for the opportunity to be in such a remarkable and unique band of brothers, to go on such marvellous adventures and to be able to record the music that we make! Let's hope there is more coming from Opaque soon! Watch this one.

Don't forget, you can buy, yes BUY (huh?) any of the band's music from here - https://bandopaque.bandcamp.com/.

Walking On Mercury Release "Aphelion"

We have just finished recording Cambridgeshire based indie rock band Walking On Mercury's debut E.P "Aphelion".  The band spent 2 full days in the studio @chimecentre tracking 5 songs (2-6 o the E.P) for their first extended release.  We also helped the band with mastering and distributing it to all of the major online distribution channels.  Great fun had by all and a great sound achieved, they are an awesome bunch of guys and were fantastic to work with.  Why not take a look at the band's Facebook page to see what their up to, plenty of gigs coming up! @walkingonmercuryofficial

New single from John Moore

It's Election Day! Woohoo... I've been to vote, have you??  What a fitting time to introduce a fitting song from an excellent gentleman, Mr John Moore.  John was one of the the first ever people I recorded back at the Glass Onion around 2006 back when I did not know what the heck I was doing in a recording studio.  Well he still made it all sound great.  This his latest single, "Hows That?" which conveys a very poignant message to all of humanity.  Please give it a listen and support local musical artists. See you on the flip-side!

New Soft Synth, Based On Classic Circuit Bending Concepts

Developer Mayank Sanganeria has released bent.fm – a full FM model of a circuit-bent synthesizer.

bent.fm allows the user to tweak classic circuit bending modifications like fine and octave-decimated clock bends, and experiment with more esoteric bends.

Sanganeria says that bent.fm is ‘for anyone interested in circuit bending, glitch sounds, industrial music, and post-procedural art.’

Circuit-bent distortions and algorithmic sequences can be created by (im)proper connections on the bend matrix. Reroute digital serial information through the base chip set (a numerically controlled oscillator) and extra logic gates (NAND and XOR, binary counters), and experience architecture-level bit crushing.

Audiobus and IAA are supported, but the app store specs make no mention of MIDI.

bent.fm is available for US $3.99 in the App Store.
