Dagda's Arp EP

"Dagda's Arp EP is the first collaboration between European musicians Zoë Blade and PIG. These low tech mixes are a stark contrast to the forthcoming album's clean versions, replacing the glossy softsynth parts with a multitracked Doepfer A-100 for a grittier, raw feel. From clangourous homebrewed drums made out of repurposed household objects, to modular analogue synthesiser parts, to bittersweet orchestral strings, this is a quirky, innovative release that spans a wide range of sounds. It is unashamedly amateur and experimental, proving once more that passion and experimentation win out over received wisdom."

Analog Lab Tech Mentoring Course

"Do you wish you were able to fix and maintain your own gear? Ever wanted to know what an oscilloscope does and how to use it?
The Analog Lab offers a complete technical hands-on mentoring program for those individuals who have an interest in being a professional gear tech or gear designer. Classes meet twice a week for three months and cover subjects such as electronic safety, components, circuit design (using examples from classic analog synths), etc. Each student chooses their own final repair or build project so you come away with a new or restored piece of gear! Jeff Blenkinsopp, The Sonic Wizard, administers classes and has been involved with analog synthesizers and their design and repair for more than 30 years. You can read more of Jeff's bio here:

You will leave the course with a "real world" education that you can't get anywhere else!

There are no more than 6 students to a class so don't delay signing up!

The next course starts the last week of April!

One Second Before Nothing

"If you had one second left to live, and everyone else along with all of mankind's history and achievements and the entire planet only had 1 second left, what would be your final thought? What would be most important to you? What would you wish you would have time for? What wrongs would you wish you could resolve? You most likely have a lot more than 1 second right now, so why are you not spending the time thinking about and acting on that which is truly important to you?"
