    Bonobo: Fragments review – a wondrous nirvana

    news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Sunday, 16 January - 15:00

(Ninja Tune)
Si Green’s celestial, swooning seventh studio album is a restful ambient dream

At every afterparty since 1988, at least one partygoer has fantasised about their friendship group growing old together in a rave retirement facility where they pipe mellow bangers through the intercom. Sesh pensioners, this is your ideal soundtrack. Since 2010’s breakthrough Black Sands , Bonobo ’s Si Green has used what he calls “electronic methods to make non-electronic music” to richly satisfying effect, and Fragments is his peak production.

As with the Cinematic Orchestra or Caribou , you settle into a Bonobo album or gig knowing roughly what the destination will be, yet never sure exactly how you’ll get there. Harps and strings are central to this year’s trip, but there’s ample space for skittery breaks, deep house and haunting choral samples.

    The week in theatre: Force Majeure; Folk – review

    news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Sunday, 9 January - 10:30 · 1 minute

Donmar Warehouse; Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, London
One false move tears a family apart in a superb adaptation of Ruben Östlund’s avalanche film. And folk song collector Cecil Sharp meets his match in Nell Leyshon’s charming new play

Force Majeure , Ruben Östlund’s 2014 film , is, on the face of it, begging not to be adapted for the stage: it involves a majestic alpine landscape and skiing – and that’s just for starters. It is also an uncategorisable, ambiguous narrative that risks being misunderstood and that, in the wrong hands, could have turned out to be a snowy bellyflop. But it’s precisely because of its high-risk content that this show is a triumph and a wonder to behold. Director Michael Longhurst and his tremendous cast have pulled off a dazzling production that entertains and unsettles, and Tim Price must take a bow too, as his adaptation is even more nuanced than the film.

In front of us, a snowy mountainscape (designer Jon Bausor) is bathed in icy blue light (Lucy Carter) and framed by a gauzy proscenium arch as though to say (a matter pertinent to what follows): this is engineered, this is theatre, keep your head. The skiing issue is stunningly resolved as the more balanced of cast members swoop dynamically down the slanted stage into the stalls, while others stay put and practise on-the-spot, sporty, disco-like choreography with neon-bright skis.

    Create looping beats using Hydrogen, an open source drum machine

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Tuesday, 14 December - 10:48

Much of today's music features the exacting work of a drum machine. The term might make you think of a drum set with mechanical levers and cranks armed with drumsticks, but all it actually refers to is a synthesizer programmed to play drum sounds.

The excellent LMMS application contains a drum machine, and there's the drumkv1 plugin for DAWs like Ardour, Qtractor, and Rosegarden. But there's also the dedicated Hydrogen drum machine that has just one job, which it does very well, and has done for the past 20 years: be a great, fully-featured, and open source drum machine.

    Much of today's music features the exacting work of a drum machine. The term might make you think of a drum set with mechanical levers and cranks armed with drumsticks, but all it actually refers to is a synthesizer programmed to play drum sounds. A good drum machine programmer (often also a drummer) can make a drum machine sound either hyper-robotic (if that's the sound the producer's going for) or almost human, with nuance and swing.

    The week in classical: James MacMillan’s Christmas Oratorio; LPO/Jurowski

    news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Saturday, 11 December - 12:30 · 1 minute

Both Royal Festival Hall, London
James MacMillan embraces history – and the listener – with his Christmas Oratorio. And Alina Ibragimova astounds in fearless Shostakovich

Immediacy, radiance and an ability to welcome the past into the present: not all there is to say on the matter, but an attempt to pinpoint the essence of James MacMillan’s music. For MacMillan (b.1959), a Scottish-born Roman Catholic, spirituality has been key to his work since a childhood fascination with plainchant and liturgy. His faith has empowered him to freewheel against fashion, gathering a large and responsive audience, from every domain, with him.

Who else would dare write a full-length Christmas Oratorio (2019), with Bach’s own example and Handel’s Messiah already cramming the limited seasonal space available? And who would start this work, after a gurgle of woodwind and a lilting Scots air, with that most tinkling, twinkly of instruments, the celesta – best known for its use in a sweeter Christmas favourite, the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ?

James MacMillan’s Christmas Oratorio is available to listen to in its world premiere performance from January 2021 in Amsterdam

The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert with Vladimir Jurowski and Alina Ibragimova is on BBC Sounds
