Juana Molina Is Wicked Good, La Reina De Los Bucles [Jun. 22nd, 2009|07:08 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

I bought the digital download of Juana Molina’s latest album from Amie Street, and have become addicted.

Juana’s music is based to a large extent on her mastery of looping, but her songs are never slaves to the looper paradigm; in fact I never thought about her music as being the product of looping until I watched the video below. She is Argentina’s answer to Björk — not that she sounds like Björk so much as the fact that she’s a woman who has invented her own art. She’s very much embedded in the larger tradition of modern South American music, but is her own woman; you might hear echoes of Bossa Nova or Tango or whatever, but she’s a genre of one, literally sui generis.

Who wants to build Paul Stretch for Power PC???? [Jun. 22nd, 2009|07:17 pm]

My posts about Paul Stretch may be the most widely-read thing I’ve done on this blog. I know that my build for Intel/OSX has been downloaded many times.

Unfortunately I don’t have access to a PPC Mac and I can’t be arsed to figure out how to cross-compile a PPC build, or do a universal binary version. I know that there are probably some actual Mac programmers out there — if you want to tackle doing a PPC build, I can host the install.

I really don’t want to get involved in supporting this — I’ve not heard back from the original developer at all, and if he’s not listening all I can do is provide the work I’ve already done as-is. The best I can say is that it’s worth every penny you pay.
