Knoxband – [2009] Equinox

Extremely shoe-gazy, ambient progressive or even post rock. Percussion only starts for the finale. Amazement during the intro.

How to use TeX comments to save yourself from always re-configuring TeXstudio
ojdo.de/wp/2019/06/how-to-use-

This posts documents an easy to miss feature supported by several LaTeX IDEs, TeXstudio in my case. They allow to cut short some otherwise tedious steps when switching between documents, by embedding a part of this variability into comments within the source files. This increases the portability of a

Fla Vector – [2013] RED

Calm and deliberate electronica backdrop. Not fighting for your attention, earning it just the more for it.

Everlasting Dream – [2011] Echoes From the Future
ojdo.de/wp/2019/05/everlasting
-BY-NC-SA-2.0

Movie soundtracks fall into a nice niche between classical and ambient music. This album adds a bit of electronic finesse to this formula. If you want to add a bit of cinematic splash to your musical diet, give this album a try. Emotional string sections meet orchestral and electronic beets. The occasion

-BY-NC-ND-2.0

This compilation more than most rewards front-to-back listening. Much care has gone in arranging the tracks "in order". Thus it hurts me more than usual to only rip two tracks out of context. So if you can find pleasure in those, the 9 other track in between warrant their long du

Various Artists – [2019] Fusion Compilation 12
ojdo.de/wp/2019/05/various-art
-BY-NC-ND-4.0

Over 5 years after my review on Fusion Compilation 8, I return to this netlabel with their most recent instalment to the series. Comparing both compilations back to back highlights how professional the free music scene has become during the course of the decade: all ten tracks have major-label grade production, crisp

"Hey, what's the matter?"
"Bleurgh. Work. Life. Politics. Stuff."
"I know, I know. Want my help?"
"You can help?"
"I can give advice. And I can give you sanctuary, for a while."
"Say you'll take me away from all this!"
The book smiled. "I'll take you away from all this."

Professor Kliq – [2011] Athene’s Theory of Everything OST
ojdo.de/wp/2019/04/professor-k
-BY-NC-SA-3.0

While I cannot recommend you to watch the movie this album is the original score to, I very much endorse its soundtrack. To paraphrase, the "documentary" is either a very crude joke or a blunt hoax by an internet celebrity. But under the ludicrous voice track, there is an ambient electronic m

Brk – [2015] IIIIII
ojdo.de/wp/2019/04/brk-2015-ii
-BY-NC-ND-3.0

Dub techno is not for every day. It has a distinct lack of mood, neither happy nor sad. Then there's the minimal harmonies, the long-form stretches of monotonous monotony. So what's to like? Actually, I don't really know. But on certain days, the meditative nature, the lack of a clear mood, and the analytical sound just work.

Six Stages of Debugging

Step 1 : That can’t happen.

Step 2 : That doesn’t happen on my machine.

Step 3 : That shouldn’t happen.

Step 4 : Why does that happen?

Step 5 : Oh, I see.

Step 6 : how did that ever work?

Various Artists – [2007] Classic Accidents
ojdo.de/wp/2019/04/various-art
-Unspecified

This vintage collection of rather minimal danceable tracks does not compromise on its concept to please. Dry clicks and noisy effects are sprinkled liberally across the whole 12-track ensemble. But that playfulness in texture is well balanced by minimal harmonies and repetitive (not to say catchy) song structures.

At the time, trying to publish music outside the traditional channels (music labels) was still quite out of the ordinary. No Bandcamp, no Jamendo, no Free Music Archive. All those only came to life during the last 10 years. If you this release's style, have a listen to the curators other compilations, mixes and podcasts
