Real bid from Ebay, offers plate with an Aphex Twin logo apparition on it. He has no logical explanation about this miracle…

(Probably one of Aphex Twin’s deep web launch efforts for the new album)

Following the 10th anniversary of Madlib and DOOM’s telepathic mind meld of an album, Jeff Weiss traces traces the history of Madvillain and details how these two perpetually mystifying artists came together for an uncanny hip-hop classic.

Knitting Factory have released two vinyl box sets reissuing Fela Kuti's albums—the first was curated by Questlove of Roots, the second by Ginger Baker. On September 29, they’ll release a third, this one put together by Brian Eno.

For Eno’s installment, he picked the albums London Scene (1971), Shakara (1972),Gentleman (1973), Afrodisiac (1973), 
Zombie (1976), Upside Down (1976), and I.T.T. (1980).

Watch Eno explain his initial (and ongoing) fascination with Kuti’s music.

The anthem is “a nasty piece of work”, according to the Canadian writer Malcolm Gladwell, who picked a bizarrely sexy Marvin Gaye rendition of it for Desert Island Discs, the long-running BBC Radio 4 series in which celebrities introduce the pieces of music that mean the most to them. “They’re blowing stuff up [in it]. This is their national anthem. It’s about rockets and bombs. Do you need better insight into the heart of the American soul?” he said.

Cloud Piano

This installation plays the keys of a piano based on the movements and shapes of the clouds. A camera pointed at the sky captures video of the clouds. Custom software uses the video of the clouds in real-time to articulate a robotic device that presses the corresponding keys on the piano. The system is set in motion to function as if the clouds are pressing the keys on the piano as they move across the sky and change shape. The resulting sound is generated from the unique key patterns created by ethereal forms that build, sweep, fluctuate and dissipate in the sky.
