Top 10 Posts from April

The top 10 posts for the last 30 days are as follows, grouped here for the sake of comparison:

Again, free MP3s were the major draw, though the second most popular post of the month was … (1) the list of the most popular posts of March (which included material on DJ /rupture, Langston Hughes, David Foster Wallace, Marina Vendrell Renaut, and others).

The two other non-MP3 entries to make the top-10 list were (2) an Image of the Week of a small instrument used at a Nicolas Collins/Hans Koch concert in Chicago, and (3) Twitter-based riffs on Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt‘s Oblique Strategies by science fiction author Richard Kadrey (which provided a Quote of the Week).

The remaining seven most read entries of April included (4) Buddha Machine-infused music by Terge Paulsen, (5) the first single of the new Moby album (with a video by David Lynch), (6) a full set of tunes created on the Nintendo Korg DS-10 cartridge (plus some thoughts on the new Nintendo DSi, which has some promising sound tools built in), (7) an experiment in 3D sound, (8) a live noise performance by Fognozzle, (9) Justin Hardison‘s sound journal, and a (10) video-game-inspired three-track release from the Surreal Madrid netlabel.
