tangents / Eno, Autechre, Chopin …

Quick News, Links, Bits: (1) Brian Eno is advising the British Liberal Democrats leader Nick Clegg on “youth issues” (bbc.co.uk). … (2) The sign for the Long Now Foundation’s museum and store at the gate of Fort Mason in San Francisco reads: “Open Daily, Weekly, Millennially.” The clock-like sign in the window reads “Will Return in Minutes, Years, Decades, Centuries” (longnow.org). … (3) It’s kind of funny to see an Autechre album release treated with the same sort of story-arc trajectory as a mainstream pop release. Does the announcement of the track list (warprecords.com) really benefit many people? Here, for the record, are those track names: “Altibzz,” “The Plc,” “IO,” “Plyphon,” “Perience,” “SonDEremawe,” “Simmm,” “Paralel Suns,” “Steels,” “Tankakern,” “Rale,” “Fo13,” “fwzE,” “90101-51-1,” “bnc Castl,” “Theswere,” “WNSN,” “chenc9,” “Notwo,” “Outh9X.” The album, titled Quaristice, is due out March 3. The image to the left appears to be the cover to Quaristice. … (4) A new journal-on-CD: Popular Noise (popularnoise.net) — thanks for the info, Rob.

(5) Upcoming redbullmusicacademy.com interviews will include DJ Krush, Arthur Baker, and Bonobo. … (6) The fällt label is doing a special download promotion, with contributions from Tonne, Taylor Deupree and others: fallt.com. … (7) Make a speaker with a plate (engadget.com) and (8) make music with old ink cartridges (engadget.com). … (9) Some more 2007 best-of lists worth checking out: Jacob Arnold of gridface.com and Alan Lockett of igloomag.com. … R.I.P., (10) Beat-era artist Liam O’Gallagher (1917 – 2008; nytimes.com: “In some circles, he is probably best known for sound art that combined performance, chance and technology to create surreal, sometimes funny works like ‘Border Dissolve in Audiospace’ from 1970, a fuzzy, echoing recording in which directory operators are called and asked to look up various numbers”) and (11) sound poet Henri Chopin (1922 – 2008; dbqp.blogspot.com).
