Life and Times of Electronic Music

Electronic music had a difficult time breaking into the music industry, but finally became a respected category. One of the biggest reasons the dance culture music has reached new heights must be the ease of creating it with the variety of software available. It can virtually be created anywhere in the world by only using a computer.

Even though every individual is capable of arranging an electronic beat, doesn’t mean it’s all good. World famous DJ’s spend a lot of time perfecting the art with more than just computer software. Production, arrangement and execution to them are equal to the same time bands and singers spend in the studio. The misconception that electronic music is just easy because the tools are readily available is well-known.

Although it’s fun to put a beat together, it can’t really be considered radio-ready. Like fans sing along to pop songs and play air guitar, beat making software gives an opportunity to relate and appreciate electronic sound. Creating an actual song or engaging music takes skill and patience. Electronic music had to survive some harsh critique before it was accepted in the entertainment business.

Slowly but surely more and more artists are incorporating electronics into their acts. Many of them find it as a way to reinvent themselves and others use it to get their songs into clubs. Performers like Rihanna rarely have a track that doesn’t involve some kind of electronic sound. Even rock bands like Linkin Park utilize beats with real instruments.

Whatever a person’s opinion about the genre and what it entails, there is no disputing that it’s taking over. It has become the go-to music when something fresh needs to be created. Needless to say electronic sounds are the way of the future and expect to hear a lot more of it.

Music file compressed 1,000 times smaller than mp3

Source: University of Rochester
Researchers at the University of Rochester have digitally reproduced music in a file nearly 1,000 times smaller than a regular MP3 file. The music, a 20-second clarinet solo, is encoded in less than a single kilobyte, and is made possible by two innovations: recreating in a computer both the real-world physics of a clarinet and the physics of a clarinet player.

The achievement, announced today at the International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing held in Las Vegas, is not yet a flawless reproduction of an original performance, but the researchers say it’s getting close.

“This is essentially a human-scale system of reproducing music,” says Mark Bocko, professor of electrical and computer engineering and co-creator of the technology. “Humans can manipulate their tongue, breath, and fingers only so fast, so in theory we shouldn’t really have to measure the music many thousands of times a second like we do on a CD. As a result, I think we may have found the absolute least amount of data needed to reproduce a piece of music.”

Robot as a Superstar

When Analogik crew were just kids we all wondered about the future and what the world would be like in the 21 st century. Although flying cars are still in their most experimental stage, there is no teleportation or inter-stellar space travel, there are a few quite exciting things around that are gradually making their way into our lives. Some technologies have been on a slow evolutionary infiltration path and some… well, some have arrived with a bang!

Asimo is a robot. Its makers at Honda claim the inspiration came from the legendary fictional character Astroboy and its name is for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility. Although officially denied, we would still like to think that his name comes from the father of The Three Laws of Robotics, visionary, prophet, and the greatest science fiction writer of our time – Mr Isaac Asimov. In order to be politically correct and in line with Mr. Asimov’s vision, one must refer to Asimo as ‘it’ and not ‘he’ or ‘she’ and when referring to its full name one shall use the following format: R. Asimo Honda (Where ‘R.’ stands for Robot).

After securing his seat on the Board, Milk becomes the first openly gay man in politics anywhere in the country. Sean Penn, who plays the movie’s title, won an Oscar for performance by an actor in a leading role during the 2009 Oscar Awards.
