GOTO80 a highly prolific tracker user since over 25 years have had a fondness before to release his albums in more interesting ways.
Now there is the Shirbum!
To get the full album it is necessary to buy the shirt as seen above with a QR code for access or buy the boring version with less goodness on it.
Applause for pushing the envelope.
To order a shirty album:
Another video with the rapper Fleks! There is not many other that give this much props and hard work into Caustic. The videos be like Money, Weed and Caustic!
Always keeping Caustic in the forefront. Go check out his Youtube channel there is not only well produced music but a bunch of tutorials...
Brian Eno is someone that is interesting as a person and also credited with being the originator of Ambient music did one app/music release called Bloom in the early days of mobile apps but alas only for iOS which hurt...
But now there is a improved and expanded and we have Bloom:10 and it sounds promising.
The video is good to hear what the creators have to say about this.
Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers are pleased to announce Bloom: 10 Worlds – a developed, augmented and expanded new edition of 2008’s game-changing original Bloom app, which explored uncharted territory in the realm of applications and was dubbed “The First Great iPhone App” by Gizmodo.
Requiring no musical or technical ability, the egalitarian and user-friendly Bloom app enabled anyone of any age to create music, simply by touching the screen. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom’s innovative controls allowed users to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player took over when Bloom was left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.
Bloom: 10 Worlds is a reimagining of the original – not simply a remaster. If the original Bloom was a single, then this would be an album. The widely broadened palette of sounds and images can be experienced via 10 new ‘worlds’, each exploring a new direction for Bloom. The first world the user encounters is an echo of the original app, with circles appearing where the user taps, while the later worlds each introduce new combinations of sounds, shapes, colours and rules of behaviour.
Please Note: At present an audio issue exclusive to the Google Pixel has prevented us releasing on those devices. We apologise for any disappointment, and hope to resolve the issue in future.
Praise for Bloom: 10 Worlds
"Few apps are truly iconic. Bloom was, and now its story lives on in this impressive and necessary follow-up." Stuff TV
Praise for the original Bloom
“The very first iPhone apps were universally dull. And then Bloom came out. It was immediately obvious that something special was happening. The app was interesting on an artistic level – one that made you reconsider the relationship between technology and music. It raised the bar for musical iPhone apps.” Gizmodo
“Hypnotic and ludicrously addictive.” The Guardian
“A relaxing alternative to just about anything else you can do with an iPhone.” Wired
Brian Eno – musician, producer, visual artist, thinker and activist – first came to international prominence as a founding member of Roxy Music, and immediately followed with a series of critically-praised, pioneering and influential solo albums – including the soon-to-be-reissued Discreet Music, Music For Films, Music For Airports and On Land. His visionary production includes albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, whilst his long list of collaborations includes recordings with John Cale, David Byrne, Grace Jones and James Blake. Equally notable are his highly-acclaimed visual experiments with light and video, which have been exhibited all over the globe – from the Venice Biennale and the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg to Beijing’s Ritan Park and the sails of the Sydney Opera House.
Eno began collaborating with musician / software designer Peter Chilvers on Will Wright’s computer game Spore. Their shared interest in generative music rapidly lead to the development of a prototype for Bloom in 2008. In the intervening decade, they experimented further with the field, expanding their catalogue of apps with Trope, Scape and Reflection. In that time Chilvers has also acted as an engineer and technical advisor to Eno on a number of other projects. A series of multi-speaker installations around the world laid the groundwork for 2016’s The Ship, and they premiered Bloom: Open Space, a mixed reality installation in Amsterdam in 2018.
In addition to his work with Eno, Chilvers co-founded the Burning Shed label and online store, toured with Underworld’s Karl Hyde as keyboardist and musical director, and has recorded instrumental albums and collaborations with vocalist Tim Bowness.
Sequential Vibe / SpaceWave - Album of nicely done instrumental synthesizer tracks made 90% in Caustic
If there is a love for synthesizer tones this new album should be checked out as the music is top notch and of course extra interesting as being mostly made using Caustic.
Can imagine that a lot of the Modular in Caustic have been used...
Hope that the album garner more attention as it deserves it!
Did post about this abum but now it got a nice little review by the Cheap Bit Sid website.
To read it go here:
Interesting album made using Nanoloop and here is what the artist says on his Bandcamp site:
Gesceap uses Nanoloop on iOS and Android devices to create a mix of electronic music styles focusing on deep bass and eclectic beats. Rhythmatic elements come from ambient noises, voices and well-known breaks while all melodic portions are generated by the app's soft synths.
Tunes are well developed for live mixing which can be seen on YouTube, while the source .nan files can be downloaded and dissected from GitHub.
released May 4, 2018
The man behind this album have released a decent amount of music on I think two labels. Using D.N.P as a name. The things released earlier have mostly been dark ambient music and some experiments like using just samples from the original DOOM game, some of it I like a lot and recommend that anyone into the darker side of things search it out.
In either case now D.N.P is spreading the wings to include Dub music under the name Dub Not Pop (Shortened D.N.P as well) which was unexpected.
Reading about it was expecting something Dub influenced and more in line with earlier productions but got surprised when listening and the sounds were traditional taking its cue from the seventies/eighties. Bigger surprise yet was that outside of mixing it was made using Caustic!
Just showing once again that there is big things that can come out from something so small and portable. It is one good sounding Album/E.P`s (There is even Viny to buy!!!) to take a listen/ buy go here:
Regarding the release of one earlier album also made using Caustic.
There is a short interview here:
Posting this is as I made the video under Moon Dub Media
Did use the phone to film some of the material and re-filming from screen etc.
Some parts is using Gifs made with Android apps and filters.
Hope you like it.
This is one song out of a three song EP that can be downloaded here:
To download the album go here:
Fizy Daequan is what could be called the second generation of Causticians pushing the Caustic envelope further. Have been amazed of what some have been doing production wise and technically using just Caustic.
And here is one more example!
Recommend to pay a visit to his ToneDen page as not only can the songs be downloaded but there is also earlier tracks.
Nightradio the creator of SunVox and many nice apps have been using them to create these albums and now they are all for free.
To get them go here:
Mentioned before that there is some people pushing Caustic hard since the last year and this is one of them.
The most musically active developer/programmer have now released a new album.
I think he does about one a year. Using his own software of course!
This one a combination of SunVox and Virtual ANS.
The creator was tired of not ever finishing music and decided to an album using just Yellofier.
It sounds cool and it is pretty amazing how far you go using just Yellofier with no added apps/software!
Here is what he said about the album:
I've always enjoyed playing around with samples and I find the limiting nature of Yellofier ideal for me to get creative quickly and get a simple song idea down. The main thing though is that it is brilliant fun which is the whole point for me.
My influences for the album is early 90's rave, techno and acid as I grew up listening to and attending various raves in the UK.
Feel a little bit bad that this did not get posted earlier as I meant to post it many weeks ago but being a mentally challenged person and a good procrastinator...
Transient always on the mobile devices making excellent music! This last offering made with SunVox the one before on Caustic. Like that he always leaves comments how he made everything on beaches and forests by some stream. Guess that is what mobile devices are for!
The artist waki from Japan have released this little gem called "russian love" using SunVox. It is quite minimal, intimate and slightly experimental. It also have the SunVox footprint all over it in the sense that it colors everything slightly dark.
(At least so it seems to me and my own relation with SunVox).
The album have been one of the few records the last year or so that scratch my ear in the right way and it is inspiring me even though I can not put the finger on exactly what is so good about it. Slightly short but better than being long and over-fluffed...
