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.

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.

Mainframe Access Denied

I have written a short piece over at the Urban Times about Tokyo Run. It gives further insight into the contents within the film and might help those of you struggling to gain mainframe access. [Read more…]

Woob – ‘Return to the City’ Series 9, Lv.2 Keycards Now Available – Batch/0 Edition Includes Tokyo Run Signed Artwork and Sticker set.

UPDATEDx2

The Return to the City keycard is back! With a Special Batch/0 Signature edition that includes a signed Tokyo Run Artcard, Tokyo Run Micro 6 Sticker set + RTTC Sticker Set. This version is limited to just 30 Pieces with a regular version limited to around 70.

As seen in Tokyo Run this new level 2 variety may not grant you immediate mainframe access like the Level 4 cards (you will need the video above and a little patience for that) but still includes extensive city access and now all cards comes complete with a Return to the City micro 6 sticker set.

Woob – Tokyo Run

Set in the future this is an intense, often disjointed realtime computer simulation of one individuals attempt to access the ‘Mainframe’.

This micro-length animation is a companion piece to the forthcoming short Return to the City. Although the two story-lines are self-contained both films form a part of the Paradigm Flux universe and lay down the foundations for the main story. [Read more…]
