Journal Journal: sux0r 2.0

I've been working on this for 6 months and i'm proud to finally have something to show for it.

Journal Journal: The reckless pursuit of utopia at all costs, even utopia.


Montreal based Trotch Recordings held a music contest with the theme "Mutant Breaks : The reckless pursuit of utopia at all costs, even utopia."

Eleven tracks have been received from all over the world. We (one guy) are very pleased with the caliber of the work. Obviously we have a strong bias but this is by far the greatest Renoise competition in the history of mankind. Each track brings their own flavor of breakbeats and experimentation, and each are pretty effing good. Conner_bw, a person who's opinion you don't give a shit about, will be taking a couple of weeks to judge and pick a winner. In reality, Conner_bw will be asking his friends to judge and he will base his decision on that. That's right, celebrity judges! Minus the whole you probably never heard of our (one guy) friends part.

If you want to listen to the tracks, all free, they're available here:

The songs are XRNS Renoise modules. When you download the tracks and load them up in Renoise you can poke and prod them all you want. And in case you didn't know...

* is a music composition tool
* has a unique approach when compared to mainstream sequencers
* delivers professional results
* works on all your computers (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
* has a vibrant international user community

Journal Journal: Enjoy Good Hex? Try Renoise for Linux (and OSX, and Windows)

Renoise is a contemporary digital audio workstation (DAW) based upon the heritage and development of tracker software. Its primary use is the composition of music using samples (in WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Ogg, and MP3 format), and MIDI sequencing of VSTi soft synths.

I'm very active in the Renoise community, whatever that means. I initiated the XRNS-PHP Project several months ago, post regularly in the Renoise forums, and absolutely love this music sequencer.

Give it a try, the demo is free, maybe it's for you too?
