Re: Stardust stirred with Black Coffee


That's great!
let me guess -you mark sections in both tunes just
before downbeats & then randomize which one streams in
at any particular point?
Did you pitch shift to match key at all or was it just
careful choice /luck?
It's nice that the source material *is* so clearly
there.
anyway, great stuff

Re: two winning pieces


Hi
a correction to last night's posting below.
There were two winners in the 'anything goes' section
-they are Jess Loseby and WOWM.
The 'Six Rules..' winner was Babel with 'echodance'.
The error was entirely mine.

Re: yawn...


<if
everyone would simply use their filters the idiots
would get no
response and, like over-acting children, eventually
tire and go away.>
Absolutely - we're all grown ups. I blocked the worst
ages ago & have lost nil sleep over it - I can't help
wishing that people wouldn't *rise* to them and I do
think that before folk decide to hone their wit on the
trolls they should consider the consequences for
everyone else.
Nevertheless on grounds of free speech I'm against a
centralised 'we suggest you block list..', except for
nazis.
There is, however, a deeply prurient part of me
that would love to see the MTAA 'worst of' list.
