2010

Although 2010 didn’t suddenly become the Future that Never Happened, it did however do a lot better than 1999 and 2001. In-fact the picture above of the International Space Station’s new observatory module (Cupola) goes a long way to help full-fill some of those old prophecy’s.

Other 2010 notable – science fiction realised highlights include: Moonbase Antarctica (see below), Scientists discovering  new life on earth? the first working flying saucer, Microsoft’s Kinect making Minority Report CPU control a commercial reality – Nintendo style:(  Apple’s perfect sci-fi future gadget the iPad and this roof-top lawn in New York (below.)

Here’s hoping by 2015 my studio will look more like this guys office at around 2:45 – or even the place below.

I’ll let Space play us out….

Mat Jarvis – Gas/High Skies Interview

Mat Jarvis is currently celebrating 15 years since the first release of his seminal album ‘Gas 0095’. In February of this year he released a new E.P, Sounds of Earth under the name ‘High Skies’. I recently got a chance to ask him a few questions about it:

S9: Tell me a bit about the recording process.

MJ: Recording and mixing was done pretty much all in the box (inside the computer), I don’t use many softsynths at the moment, although sometimes I will sample an analog synth or noise and put it in a softsampler. I have a few external effects and old delays and phasers, so some sounds go through four or five generations being sampled and resampled through this old gear to take the edges off, and sometimes become unrecognisable until I finally get the sound I’m after, which was a lot of processing for the percussive bass sound on the track ‘Sounds of Earth’.
