This Just in from the Boundaries of Musical Science...

Three acts who are redefining how music is made and played. 

1. If you’re wandering through Trafalgar Square during the London Design Festival you might find yourself sucked into the BE OPEN Sound Portal. Inside the black rubber doughnut of a building you will find sound works by artists and musicians including electronica pioneer Squarepusher, and some very confused pigeons. 14-23 September, londondesignfestival.com

2. Tender Metal, the debut solo album by Gwilym Gold (ex-Golden Silvers) is being release as an app only - no physical versions available - that plays on a new format called BRONZE.

The BRONZE software remakes each track anew every time you listen to it. Got that? You can never hear the same song the same way twice. But techno-forwardness aside, Gold’s music is lovely, in the vein of James Blake or Radiohead at their mellowest (or at least it was when we played it).

Tender Metal is out on 10 September on Apple, iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, gwilymgold.com

 

3. Lastly, “net artists” Pandovisia have made a debut album entirely through the internet, using cloud services and something wizzy-sounding called “asynchronous communication”.

This one is strictly for those who are tickled by the idea of songs called things like “Girl from Facebook” or “Backups are Forever” - a reworking of “Diamonds are Forever” - and “Strange Attachment” (actually, that last one is quite neat). Pandovisia.com
