This is a place I’ve been meaning to visit for a very long time, but as it’s only open on very specific days of the week. But a couple of Saturday’s ago I managed to get there. It’s a lovely place. Somewhere that anyone in London should visit if they have any interest in musical instruments, especially the mechanical kind.
It’s small, much smaller than the one by the same name in Brussels, but it is great and I’m sure that I’ll be going again.
I’ve been meaning to mention this and just haven’t gotten around to it as yet, at least not here anyway. So, PalmSounds is kind of on hold as I’ve moved writing my mobile content to CDM now. I think it’s a good move. It means that mobile music content will hopefully get a much bigger audience, and as things move and converge I believe CDM will be a better place to see that through.
I found out yesterday that Holger Czukay died on the 5th of this month. It is so sad. I have been listening to his music and collaborations for over 30 years now. Some time ago I went to see him live at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was a great show. He had so much energy. It was such a fun show.
I will be listening to his music over the next few days and enjoying it, remembering what an incredible innovator he was, and how he influenced so many creative people. He’ll be missed by many. He will be missed by me.
I’ve been a fan for a long time now, and I saw them at WOMAD a few years ago, which was a real joy. Now they’ve released Burials in Several Earths on 10″ vinyl and it is a thing of beauty. Not only to listen to but simply as an object in itself. I’m glad to own it.
I actually got these two working a long time ago, and they do work quite well, if being a bit limited, but they’re fun and that’s fine.
However, I was thinking the other day that I should give it a go with some of the other little modular things I have. The colossus sequencer has a CV out so should work with some of my other bits and pieces.
