Knír nebo život?
“Moje sestra si myslí, že jsem ji chtěla otrávit. Prostě jsem nalila čistící prostředek do sklenice na víno, která stála na baru, ona přišla, bez jediného slova se po ní vrhla a začala si v ní máčet rty. Tak jsem ji nechala. Říkala jsem si — když ani neumí pozdravit… Nakonec si musela sama zavolat sanitku.”

Cyberpunk Digital Inspiration is an album made entirely of synth waveforms and rompler sound clips, crashed together in patterns that hopefully inspire others to create. Each track is accompanied by an image and a writing prompt.
As a classically trained musician, I’d never done much with synthesizers before. While writing a cyberpunk themed serial, Incorporated, that I intended to podcast, I decided to write a soundtrack to go with it. But to do that, I had to learn something new. Every other instrument I’d ever used had strings or tubes to create sound. Now I’m making sound with a MIDI keyboard and software. So I started writing cyberpunk themed music in a simple synth program, and started putting them up online.
Digital Inspirations is made of the first thirty synth and rompler tracks that I made while developing the style and digital instrument set for the soundtrack to Incorporated. I hope they will inspire others to create sci-fi and cyberpunk worlds and settings, just as they’ve done for me while I’ve been working on them. They were created with a combination of skills learned in analog instruments, and entirely digital or synthesized waveforms combined by software. Nature and technology, man and machine, working together to create something new.
What genre is it? Damned if I know. There’s a bit of synth and retro wave influence, just because I grew up in the 80s. There’s a bit of jazz and orchestral influence, because I’ve been in orchestras and small ensembles. For now, I’m just calling this a cyberpunk soundtrack, and leaving it at that.

The band VIBESONIC JAM from Slovenia was started by the creative core of the band Sleazy Snails which played in most venues all over Slovenia and received great reviews in the media. Vibesonic Jam decided to completely ignore current musical trends and mix various musical styles in order to pursue their vision. Their eclecticism includes styles such as hard rock, psychedelia, indie etc. The result is a unique style that builds its expressive power on atmosphere, controlled noise, melodics and the current inspiration of the band members. In live shows the force and richness of sound is upgraded by improvisations of the band members.
PHYZZ Band performed at Mansfield VFW on March 22, 2014

For many Americans, vinyl records bring back memories of growing up in the ’60s and ’70s.
At that time, people listened to Elvis Presley and The Beatles on black discs spinning on a turntable. Today’s younger generation did not grow up with vinyl records. But for them, vinyl is cool.
Fourteen-year-old Jack Lowenstein visited Crooked Beat Records in Washington, DC.
JACK LOWENSTEIN: “I prefer to buy vinyl records over CD.”
Nineteen-year-old Sarah Griffith likes them, too.
SARAH GRIFFITH: “More recently I’ve started buying more, you know, like old punk records and stuff.”
Jonathon Oldmixon is in his 30s. For him, records are collectibles.
JONATHON OLDMIXON: “I don’t have a preference. However I’ll admit there are some things that I want specifically on vinyl because they have a certain aesthetic appeal to them. The picture on the cover is really nice or the record itself is really nice.”
Nielsen SoundScan reports on music and audio sales in the United States. It says vinyl records were the fastest growing music media in 2010. About three million were sold. Still, sales of vinyl records in America are small compared to CDs and MP3s.
Bill Daly is the owner of Crooked Beat.
BILL DALY: “Since 2007, vinyl has grown to where it is now — 99 percent of our sales. In 2007, when they started introducing new vinyl releases, free MP3 download card with it, that’s when the sales started surging.”
He says his online sales of vinyl are growing.
BILL DALY: “We ship all over the world almost every day. You name the country, we’ve probably shipped there because there’s not very many record stores around the world anymore.”
Furnace MFG in Virginia was mainly known for manufacturing CDs and DVDs. Now its main product is vinyl. Company head Eric Astor says meeting demand for vinyl has been hard.
ERIC ASTOR: “They haven’t made a new vinyl pressing machine since the early ’80s, so you have to find the equipment that’s available and there’s not a lot of equipment available.”
Eric Astor has partnered with vinyl factories in Germany and Holland. The records are sent to Furnace’s headquarters, prepared and shipped. Astor says his company produces more than two million vinyl records a year.
For some people, they are a reminder of a time before digital media.
Joe Pollock has been collecting vinyl for seven years.
JOE POLLOCK: “I go through my collection, I pick out what I want to hear, I put it on, there’s that, you’re touching it, you’re feeling it. There is a warmth to it. And you have to sit through a whole album.”
As Eric Astor notes:
ERIC ASTOR: “A record that’s pressed well from start to finish can sound much better than anything digital because of the fact that it’s not in compressed, whereas with any sort of a CD or even a high-res digital file there’s always a little bit of compression.”
Astor says nothing beats a real record. He says vinyl’s popularity will continue to grow. I’m Mario Ritter.
