Rex Club - Paris

New design for this fabulous club, in September 2005. So, for the dedicated clubber, a visit to Paris will be not complete without a night at the Rex Club(Always, with his very good sound-system).
Some of the best DJs from around the world have graced the decks in this dark, basement venue, with the emphasis mainly on techno. Laurent Garnier caused a stir here back in 1991 with his Wake Up nights and his numerous appearances always draw a sizeable crowd.

Name: Rex Club
Address: 5, Boulevard Poissonnière, 75002 Paris, France
By Metro: Bonne Nouvelle.
Tel: +33 (0) 1 42 36 28 83
Fax: +33 (0) 1 42 21 11 93
Opening Hours: 11pm-dawn

The club attracts a wide-ranging crowd. Entry is easier than at some of the bigger and glitzier clubs, but arrive early, especially when the better known guests are in town.

Sensitive Object : control music

I like a lot Sensitive Object company because they are French, because they talk about man-machine interfaces and because they made a technology to control everything possible with sounds waves : this technology is based on the recognition of sound waves which propagate in an object when it is touched at a precise location. A tap on a table possesses an acoustic signature that is distinctive at the point of impact. In other words, the waves that are emitted from a precise point are diffused in the material differently from a tap that occurs a few centimeters away. This property was discovered thanks to a physical process called temporal reversal, which precisely identifies the source of the emitted waves.
At this time they've developed some flat virtual keyboard for and a line of embedded products in the form of electronic modules to integrate very easily in all host devices. These modules are of low power consumption and reduced cost : think about this technologie for music gear...

Take MIDI control over the world

I discover highly_liquid via Get LoFi blog.
They sell MIDI interface to control a large array of gear.
So far their new MIDISpeak Module (great name!!) is their best interface : Adds a standard MIDI IN port to your Speak & Spell, Speak & Read, or Speak & Mat.
Another module is a 8 output MIDI decoder with integrated relay, transistor, or 5V switching and behaviour customization.
Perhaps a good idea to interface it with Speakjet?

A movie where Deejay is God

I like a lot this video !
Music on vinyl is represented as a time-line. And Deejay can control it with usual turntablism tricks...
Remember that you can "really" do that with the Pioneer DVJ-X1.
You must watch this video.

Insanium : Speakjet powered synthi

Remember the exciting Speakjet voice synthesizer chip ? Here is the Insanium a 4 oscillator digital / analog hybrid synth designed and coded from the ground up by Lorin Edwin Parker and built from scratch.
The speakjet is used for both speech, and as a synth. It also contains analog filters, mixers, mosfet preamps and a slew of other sound stuff. The instrument also contains a hand-held radio and a patchable matrix mixer, as well as a computer data port for preset programming and firmware update and an auxiliary input.
