Girl Talk has released a new mashup album entitled Feed The Animals. Similar to how Radiohead sold their latest album, you can name your own price and get certain benefits depending on how much you pay. It’s available in both 320kbps and FLAC formats, and they will eventually make CD’s available.
Every NIN fan been dreaming of an instrumental album by Trent Reznor, and now finally we get one, and it’s consists of 36 songs spanning 2 hours! I’m going through it now and I just cannot contain my happiness at its awesomeness. Here’s more information:
Nine Inch Nails presents Ghosts I – IV, a brand new 36 track instrumental collection available right now. Almost two hours of new music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I – IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.
Trent Reznor explains, “I’ve been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn’t have made sense until this point. This collection of music is the result of working from a very visual perspective – dressing imagined locations and scenarios with sound and texture; a soundtrack for daydreams. I’m very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts.”
The first 9 songs on the album are free to download. The album is $5 for the complete collection, and you have a choice of MP3 (320kbps, DRM-free), FLAC, and Apple Lossless formats. You can also buy the CD for $10, or pay even more for limited-edition sets that give you the ability to remix any of these songs and distribute those songs. Since the album is under a Creative Commons license, here’s one of the songs for you to hear.
I’ve put together a new website, called AudioSurfBoard. It allows gamers playing AudioSurf to share their videos of them playing, all on one site, using any video service they like.
If you’re not familiar with AudioSurf, think of it like Guitar Hero or Rock Band, but without the cheap, plasticky instruments, or the limited soundtrack, or even the expensive pricetag. AudioSurf’s track-like stages visually mimic the music the player chooses, while the player races across several lanes collecting colored blocks that appear in sync with the music.
Here’s a video of AudioSurf in action, click the image below to view it:
This is all kinds of awesome. ImprovEverywhere had 207 people freeze in place for 5 minutes in Grand Central Terminal, New York.
Over 200 people freeze in place on cue in Grand Central Terminal in New York.
This is one of over 100 different missions Improv Everywhere has executed over the past nine years in New York City. Others include Frozen Grand Central, the Food Court Musical, and the famous No Pants Subway Ride, to name a few.
