    'Dubstep' and 'Grime' recognized as real words by the Chambers Dictionary; see, I totally deserved that triple word score!

    In contrast with their snooty cousins over at the Oxford University Press (who also have 'dubstep' and the music variation of the word 'grime' defined in their dictionary), the prestigious (?) Chambers Dictionary is something like a more carefully monitored Urban Dictionary, but with a slightly smaller number of hooligans running the show. In their new edition of the dictionary, Chambers defines 'dubstep' as a "type of electronic popular dance music developed from drum and bass," and 'grime' as a "style of popular music combining elements of dancehall and hip-hop." If you ask me, both of these definitions are woefully vague and unspecific.

    For comparison's sake, let's take a look at an Urban Dictionary definition of 'dubstep', selected entirely non-randomly. User carsoncb articulately characterizes the genre, with the passion it deserves, as "the music that is created from transformers having sex." Oh, of course! That dubstep! Point, Urban Dictionary.

    Other words included among the 200 new additions to the Chambers Dictionary are: 'boyband,' defined as "a pop group, targeting mainly the teenage market, composed of young males chosen because they look good and can dance and sometimes even sing," and 'beatboxing,' described as the imitation of "an electronic drum machine using the voice." Well, how about that? 'Beatboxing' finally made the cut. Pardon me while I imagine the staff at Chambers carefully navigating this newfangled internet thing, wondering what us young rapscallions are up to these days.

    It's kind of interesting to wonder what Oasis would have sounded like if The Catherine Wheel had never written Black Metallic. Every big Oasis hit pretty much spawned from that song musically.

    This sounds neat-o!

    Co-operation of Krzysztof Penderecki, Aphex Twin and Jonny Greenwood is something unprecedented. Aphex Twin is a prominent figure of the contemporary electronic music; he’s the first techno artist whose works have been transcribed for orchestra and then performed in major concert halls all over the world (among others by London Sinfonietta and Alarm Will Sound). Jonny Greenwood, guitarist of Radiohead and a composer well acquainted with ‘classic’ instrumentarium, manifests his attachment to Penderecki’s music.

    The programme of two concerts in Wrocław includes three compositions by Penderecki: “Polymorphia for strings”, “Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima” and “Canon for strings”. All these works, written for strings (in the latter case, for strings and tape delay), come from 1960-1962, the avant-garde years of the composer’s life. Both Aphex Twin and Jonny Greenwood will invoke just that period in their music. “Polymorphia” – performed for the first time 50 years ago – has become their source of inspiration. Aphex Twin is composing “Polymorphia Reloaded” while Jonny Greenwood - “48 Responses to Polymorphia”; both compositions will have their world premiere in Wrocław.

    “Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima” has been chosen mainly because of its relations with Jonny Greenwood’s “Popcorn Superhet Receiver” (inspired by Penderecki’s music) and the Aphex Twin’s decision to remix just that piece by the Polish composer. Concerts will be supplemented with Penderecki’s “Canon” for 52 strings and tape delay, two sets by Aphex Twin, and a piece from the Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack “There Will be blood."

    Aside from afrobeat stuff, are there any GREAT funk artists besides the big three and their related/solo projects (James Brown, Sly Stone, P-Funk)? I mean enduring bands with multiple great albums.

    I've always enjoyed Lakeside quite a bit, and Slave had some fairly consistent output. Roger Troutman had lots of good output as well in various acts.

    Nowhere near as bad as I thought it'd be. Lou sounds like he's enjoying the hell out of rambling over that riff, and it sounds good to hear him outside of his musical comfort zone. In the choruses he reminds me of Henry Rollins.

    The solar system visualized as a musical instrument, chiming away the years.
    It's more of an ambient/tone generator than an instrument, but you can adjust the rate at which the "planets" orbit which changes the rate at which each tone is played/triggered. A cool concept, and one which might be good if you want something to zone out to or playing in the background while reading.

    So I'm listening to a Flac recording for the first time, and it is also a vinyl rip (which could easily affect my judgement). I'm not sure if it is in my head that Flac sounds a lot better or not, but I am really liking this sound. Does anyone know of any specific records where you can tell a distinct difference from Flac to V0, and records that lack a difference?

    While you're making the record, you're sort of prevented from appreciating it on that level because you can't allow yourself to be distracted by your enthusiasm and ignore problems as they come up. So you're sort of like a gynecologist in a sense. Like you're working up close and personal with a vagina but you really shouldn't allow yourself to get turned on by it, because you've got a job to do. You need to have a different relationship with the vagina. And it's the same way with music when you're in the studio, so it's only after you finish a record that you even can allow yourself to enjoy it as a fan.
