Music of Sound Incase you missed the news yesterday VCV Rack has launched – when I read their URL I grok it as CV Crack.. and as per the image below, it felt confirmed after my first jam with it last night… Think of it as virtual Eurorack modular, with the initial free release providing basic modules plus a set of Mutable Instruments modules based on the same code as their great Eurorack modules.. At present it is a freestanding app, but there is a plan to provide a VST bridge and I can easily predict this future: there will be a similar explosion of new modules as per what has happened IRL over the last many years. They likely wont be free, but I applaud the long term thinking of the developers to provide the platform for free, to encourage innovation. Will this detract from real modular ie IRL? I doubt it – I think more the reverse will happen. Modules I was most reaching for but could not find: an interesting LFO capable of very slow speeds, a clock divider and a stereo mixer.

But films about the mind—the tricks it plays, the depths it sinks to and the feats it’s capable of—are guides to the zeitgeist of their era, as well as a window into the future. For example, George Orwell’s book 1984 predicted fantastical concepts that are now commonplace (doublespeak=politics?). • The Wachowski brothers’ first Matrix (there were two less satisfying sequels) challenged reality and our place in it. • This is a movie about getting into your head—literally. • Imagine if the very source of your being was betraying you. • One of the greatest aspects of the mind is its ability to remember. • Avatar tells the story of a physically challenged man who gets a second chance to be a soldier through his avatar—a computer’s representation of a person or his/her alter ago. High Anxiety (1977) Written by, directed by and starring Mel Brooks A spoof of and homage to psychodrama thrillers.
Unplugged Cafe Tech News | Innovation News | Money News the sound my head makes Federico Fellini Federico Fellini (Italian: [fedeˈriːko felˈliːni]; January 20, 1920 – October 31, 1993) was an Italian film director and scriptwriter. Known for his distinct style that blends fantasy and baroque images with earthiness, he is considered one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of the 20th century. In a career spanning almost fifty years, Fellini won the Palme d'Or for La Dolce Vita, was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, and directed four motion pictures that won Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. In 1993, he was awarded an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles. Early life and education Rimini (1920–1938) Fellini was born on January 20, 1920 to middle-class parents in Rimini, then a small town on the Adriatic Sea. Enrolled at the Ginnasio Giulio Cesare in 1929, he made friends with Luigi ‘Titta’ Benzi, later a prominent Rimini lawyer (and the model for young Titta in Amarcord (1973)).
