Leafcutter John remix competition

I've seen Leafcutter John play live twice. The first time was amazing. It was a perfect performance combining the sounds of the guitar, cello and vocals with funny sounds, like from blowing on a straw in a glass of water, live processed with his handwritten software.

The second time was not good at all. He sung loud and uncontrolled like a drunkard, and the whole performance totally missed the nuance and intimicy of the first one. While this left a bad taste in my mouth I have to say I still like his music, and his way of melting together instruments and everyday sounds.

Now you can remix Leafcutter John. There's a competition ending at the end of this month, so you have about two weeks left. There already is a good amount of remixes to be heard on his website, including a very nice one by Sunken Foal. Click on the image for details.

The Nine Inch Nails business model

If you've been wondering how artists like Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails can survive while giving away their music for free, this will be an interesting interview to watch. Digg founder Kevin Rose interviews Trent Reznor on the Digg Dialogue.

Amazing music making machines

I found this wonderful video via Make Magazine showing music making machines created by Felix Thorn in his South London bedroom:

Thorn created the instrument because he wanted his compositions to be played without a performer. I wonder how many other great installations are made in bedrooms we don't know of and maybe will never hear.
