Woob – Have Landed Technicolor CD now available So-lus

 

Having sold out again the Technicolor CD is now back and available on its own for the first time. This is the last of the stock of the re-press and it will not get another one as I am phasing out CD’s.

 

This could soon be the last available CD to buy from the Woob Bandcamp store, as stock is getting low on Lost 1194 and Ultrascope. Oh and as for that green monochrome I’ll get on to to it eventually!

Starstruck

This is a weird one as this pilot for sci-fi sitcom had not been seen for 35 years until uploaded recently by one of the effects technicians who worked on the show. It originally only aired once on CBS in June 1979 it’s kinda wacky and a little surreal – probably best it didn’t go any further! but great to see this stuff resurface. Full story Via

I still need to test upload and check track mix points, then probably re-upload another time but all going well it should be available to download from this week and as early as tomorrow.

Woob – Light and Levitation

Amazing photography by Sofia Ajram via DRB’s extreme sleeping series

Sometime around December 2013 I was having a conversation with a friend about how surprised I was by the relatively high number of Ultrascope CD sales given the niche that is Woob and indeed the now niche that are CD’s and that it was a shame there were not enough to make a living from enabling me to focus on Woob music exclusively. He comically suggested that all I needed was one big Xmas Hit –  along the lines of Mariah Carey, Slade or Wham!. I jokingly replied that maybe a penguin chorus would be more appropriate! However the next day that conversation jogged my memory, reminding me of a choral album concept I previously had.

The album already had a rough (now abandoned) track that featured (in part) on the mix I did for French FM Radio show SolenoMix with it’s title – Light and Levitation inspired by the photograph above. So I decided to revive the idea, it was too late for that year…I planned on 2014.

Flash Forward to December last year and I had almost finished the second track when disaster struck – I won’t go into details on that now but the idea was that every December / early January a piece or two of ambient choral music would be released under the banner Light and Levitation and after the holidays would be removed until the following year when another piece would be added to the collection until, however many years down the line, a full album would be complete and made available – potentially up to a decade from now.

Woob – Reboot is Five

Above – where it began

The Woob reboot is 5 this year – never have so many months flown by quite so quickly. Back in 2010 when Unknown Quantity was released (on New Years Day!) I wondered  where it all might lead, back then I could never have predicted the sheer quantity of output both musical and physical. At risk of sounding a bit corny – focusing on Woob may have been a financial challenge (massive understatement) but it’s been rewarding in so many other ways.

So massive thanks to those who came along for the ride and have helped support the music over the years … hopefully there’s a couple more to come.

Let me know your favourite new Woob track in the comments.

Woob – Tokyo Run – Hidden Mainframe Accessed

cpu

With the recent move into VR (more below) I thought I’d do a check on how many have hacked into the mainframe. Incredibly 11 people have now managed to bypass the Level 4 keycard and accessed the system simply by viewing Tokyo Run. Now this may not seem like a significant number but it’s not an easy task – major patience and commitment is required! Personally I was expecting 1 or 2 at most. So congratulations to the few who have gained access and for the rest yet to try here’s the blurb from the original post.

As you can see the film features an access card not unlike the Return to the City Keycard. In the real world a Series 9, Level 4 Keycard gave you access to the ‘Mainframe’ – a beta version of the forthcoming Woob track. The film teases ‘Mainframe Access lies within’ so connect the dots add a little patience some simple guesswork/deciphering and see where it gets you!

vrr

Recently however another way to decipher the content has arisen. Tokyo Run now resides inside it’s own virtual arcade cabinet on a giant wraparound screen within the VR Technolust Beta (seen below). You probably need a healthy dose of midi-chlorians in your system to decipher it in this way but the visual assault is significantly more potent. More details in this post

What You Listening To?

What are you listening to? Let me know in the comments.

 

I just recently rediscovered the above gem which I thought had been lost forever it was on a Stakker Humanoid Peel session tape given to me by the man himself back in the day but got stolen off me a few years later. It’s been 23 years since I heard it last !   –  wish I could find the rest of the session.

Another blast from the past below heard this one recently for the first time in a decade or so!

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.
