Eight minutes of ballerina-like pure analogue synths, gentle soundwaves lapping over the tape echo. Equipment used: Roland Space Echo, Roland Jupiter 6, ARP Odyssey and the Akai S612 vintage sampler. No MIDI.
It’s based on our iPad app of the same name, but has been updated and is available for your browser. It’s still in beta and uses experimental HTML5 code so it won’t work on all browsers, but I can confirm it does work on Chrome and Safari 6, possibly Firefox. Other browsers such as IE and Mobile Safari (ipad) may be missing features such as music.
A mini video of a super-massive coronal mass ejection, travelling at 900 miles per second. The Earth would be about the same size as the smallest feature you can see on the Sun’s surface, or about 1/100th the diameter of the Sun.
Images were captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, August 2012.
Brand new High Skies remix of the classic Fury Phreaks track, Soothe (feat Terra Deva and Charles Webster)
Only ARP Odyssey, voice and Roland Space Echo.
The video is an animation of all the frequency dynamics in the music, the colours being the intensities of the frequencies. It’s available in 4k resolution if you view in full screen (set your eyes to retina).
Osmos 2 has been released for iOS and is a free update.
Introducing multiplayer and iPad retina support.
And for this weekend you can play against the devs (until our batteries run out). I’ll add all the Game Center names here as things progress.
I am = OsmosDev_Mat
Dave Burke = OsmosDev_Dave
Andy Nealen = OsmosDev_Andy
Play against your friends (and enemies), locally (via wi-fi or Bluetooth), or over the Internet (random or invitations)!
Woob has a great new EP out and we have ten copies to give away;
simply add a comment to this post to win. There’s a brilliant timelapse video to accompany Paradigm Flux made with Photographer Samuel Cockedey. We also took the opportunity for a quick interview with them both.
Mat Jarvis: Paradigm Flux, especially the eponymous track, sounds more hectic and in your face than previous Woob releases; Is this a new direction for Woob? Paul Frankland: I have mainly been working to picture since around 2001 and this called for me to write in a lot of very different and sometimes unique genres, but there was never any time to really further develop and explore these ideas. This EP and eventual album are a platform for me to do this without the usual strict parameters and deadlines. I had toyed with the idea of recording under a different name for this project but decided against it as not to further fragment my output. However The ‘Tokyo cut’ of ‘Paradigm Flux’ was arranged specifically for the ‘Inter // States’ film and as such is written to convey the franticness of the imagery – the album version is much more spaced out.
