Herv Portable Music Volume 1 out April 1st

Post by herv » Sat Mar 19, 2011 11:50 am

Hello all!

Over the past number of months I've been working on a series of e.ps which are being slowly released over the course of 2011 on Boyscoutaudio, a new Dublin label. Early last year I returned to full time 9-5 type employment after approximately 18 months doing music full-time. My new job is rewarding but the distances I have to travel and the time spent in transit  were initially prohibitive to making tracks. I subsequently decided to try making stuff on the move and the fruits of the first few months will be laid bare on April 1st with Portable Music Volume 1. 

Portable 1 features 8 tracks composed on a Nintendo Ds using Korgs Ds-10 software and will be available to buy on limited edition cassette from http://www.boyscoutaudio.com on April 1st. If any of you are in the Dublin area I'm having a launch too in association with Boyscoutaudio and the Gamepak Collective where you'll be able to purchase the cassette on the night. €5 in and €8 with the tape. More details available below:

http://www.gamepakcollective.com/?p=206

Support on the night comes from the following:

—- Bluefood
—- Glotchbot
—- Bitwise Operator
—- Catscars
—- PR!
—- SU7A7S
PLUS DJs (BAR ROOM):
—- Wuffah
—- Gamepak residents

There will be additional Portable Musics over the coming months, Portable 2 moves to the iPad and Korg's iMS-20 software and portable 3 will return to the DS with Korg's M01 programme.

Check out a track from Portable 1 here:

Hope alls good! 

Much love

Why indeed? :) because I love cassettes, there's no other format where u can listen to a release, stop the player mid song, put the tape away and when u come back to it 3 months later you're instantly transported back to that moment.

Also they're cheap, they can be written over if you don't like the music and quite frankly i was getting sick of doing only purely net releases.
