The iloobia guide to the perfect ‘Tokyo Run’ Zoetrope experience

Woob – Tokyo Substrate Paradox

This ‘Holographic Substrate’ includes five new paradox (Side S)
exclusive vinyl track – Fallen + the rest of the original Zoetrope tracks all in one place.

Since the release of the Tokyo Run album there has been a number of requests for a vinyl capture,  given the dramatic difference in sound/mastering between vinyl vs digital.

After eventually tracking down a service that used state of the art phono converters to do the transfer (thanks Christian!) I proceeded to remove (hand drawn at sample level) scores of vinyl pops (being sure to leave just enough to keep the vinyl character)..

….Then I started playing around with the captures!

Tokyo Substrate Paradox was born.

Best thought of as a kind of internal third S side that includes five new paradox tracks created from the captures.

If you missed out on the vinyl this is a great alternate way to experience it and a chance to hear that vinyl exclusive ‘Fallen’ plus the five new paradox. For those who already bought the original album the extra tracks will be available separately but the whole album will be half price for its first few weeks on sale.

No additional loudness has been added to the captures as to keep the purity of the vinyl dynamics  and experiance the larger sound (you will have to turn up your volume to compensate) There’s no physical, except a one-off that will include the two vinyl copies actually used in the capture. This will be available through woob bandcamp on release later this week.

Thanks to iloobia for the original zoetrope animation that I’ve repurposed and be sure to watch untill the end of the video to catch the crazy alien shit!

 

Season 9 Album of the Month – October – Mac Quayle – Mr. Robot – Volume 5

Continuing the tradition of remaining out of time with reality here’s October album of the month. Coincidentally it’s another Lakeshore release from one of my fave Season 1 TV shows of all time and although I’ve yet to watch the season these tracks originate from the soundtrack (at least) appears to be improving with every show.

Films to Break Projectors

This award-winning short film by Illoobia (who recently built the Tokyo Run zoetrope vinyl image) repurposes old 16/8mm film reels to impose on the viewer ‘ambiguous narratives’.  However the film has the unnerving effect of projecting on the audience an arthropod like transformation, now crawling through the dusty, neglected splices from cutting room floors of past times now forgotten.

Why Microsoft Lost E3 (Badly)

Xbox-One-FLAT-gaming

“We don’t have any plans specific to Xbox consoles in virtual reality or mixed reality,”

Quote from Mike Nichols chief marketing officer for gaming via Game Industry.biz interview.

Previously when hyping their new Xbone 1 X 1 X Scorpion X 1 back at E3 2016 Phil Spencer (fans hailed xbox saviour and head of Xbox) said on stage that the Xbox One X would become the industry’s next VR-compatible console, positioning the platform to compete with Sony’s VR with what he called “high fidelity VR.” …Well so much for that!

Woob – Lost 1194 – Launch Event Post

cd_lost

UPDATED – OUT NOW – Bandcamp // Woob HQ

Yes! it’s happening today! …Just I(‘m in UK time)

I’m running a lot behind schedule as forgot today clashed with Prototype Vector’s landing! but it is happening will post some reveal times a little later. Launch event post should begin proper around 10.10 pm (UK time) bookmark this page and get those F5′s/refreshes at the ready!

Lost 1194 Is a collection of previously unreleased recordings from the Woob debut album recording sessions at Square Center Studios. Digitally Re-mastered keeping the integrity of the original sound intact and formed from the alternate live mixes (Wuub had 6!) this collection combines to form an alternative take on 1194.

The roots of most of these recordings can be found in the original Woob six part cassette series. However there are tracks from that series that were not part of the original debut and some of these will also appear as part of this new collection. This launch Event Post will reveal various editions and how these will be included.

The Lost Prologue below gives you an ambient taster of the album to be released Tonight!

The amazing artwork is by French concept artist and illustrator Florian de Gesincourt the widescreen version will feature on the CD.
