Eivind Gets Punkt

It has been my dream to attend the Punkt Festival in Norway. There, some of the worlds most forward thinking musicians perform concerts that are recorded live, then remixed immediately after for another audience. In 2013 Eivind Aarset performed with his quartet, augmented by Jan Bang, and was subsequently remixed by Bang, Arve Henriksen and Eric Honore. I wasn’t there and probably neither were you, but fortunately for all of us both Aarset’s performance and the remix are presented here.


One Person’s Ugly Is Another Person’s Awesome

“I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible.” —Sonny Sharrock

I have that quote in my email signature. Digg felt they had to title this video “Swedish Shredder Finds The Ugliest Sounds A Guitar Can Make.” The jolly Freak Guitarist who posted it called it simply “Harmonics #5 – Mattias Eklundh Guitar Lesson.” Either way these are some great sounds.


Electro-Harmonix Clockworks

Clockworks is a faithful reissue of the classic pedal made by Electro-Harmonix in the 1970s. It can be used as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines, and to trigger electronic percussion products like the EHX Crash Pad classic drum synth. Clockworks doesn’t create sound on its own. It generates pulses to trigger other devices and can set the tempo for a drum machine or sequencer like EHX’s 8 Step Program. For guitar application check out about 5:34. It also has possibilities for those guitarists who process their instrument through synth filters.
