A collection of fun, humor, and random cool stuff from the web.

Psytrance flyers 2005—2007

I was cleaning up some old folders on my disk drive and suddenly discovered a quite nice archive of Psytrance flyers from the parties that took place in Moscow city in 2005—2007. Unfortunately, most flyers are lost so these are the only left. And yes, I was partying hard!

I thought it would be fun to looking at these pictures now, a decade later, especially for that generation of ravers who already have kids: “Look, son, that is where your old man used to rave!”. I think Moscow trancers (and some graphic designers, just for lolz) will appreciate these pictures.

Time traveller’s archive — 5

  1. Reasons You Should Never Scrimp On Your Photo Shoot: Part 1 and Part 2. Useful advice.
  2. Kollektivet: 2manybuttons. Hilarious video parody on modern DJs setup.
  3. Do you really need to be online all the time?. One more “anti-social” networks video.
  4. Weav by Cute Little Apps. A short teaser video of brand new audio format called “Weav”, which allows to play audio at any speed without quality loss. I didn’t get the full potential yet, but looks interesting so far.
  5. The Perfect Pump: 3 Sidechain Compression Plug-ins Compared — good detailed article from Dj Tech Tools.

A track in 26 hours

I’ve decided to continue my experiment and measure how much time I spent for a new track. The results are following:

Don’t pay attention that it stretched out for a month — I’ve worked on another track at same time and studio upgrade took an additional week. I have to admit, this track was pretty hard: it took 53 “tomatoes”, i.e. 26,5 work hours — up to 65% longer than previous one. Conclusion: tomatoes technique works great (I used to write tracks much, much longer before), yet still I have to keep looking for ways to optimize music production process.

A track in 16 hours

After using “tomatoes” technique I can easily say how much time takes for doing a things. Just for fun I’ve decided to measure how many “tomatoes” will take writing a new track:

It took 2 weeks from blank project to finished track, which is quite fast I’d say. But most interesting is that entire work has been made in 32 “tomatoes”, i.e. 16 hours. I actually surprised because I thought it should be longer. Could I write same track for a straight 16 hours of work in a row? I bet not.

P.S. The track is damn awesome! :-)
