  • Multicast on Sleeping Pills OST

    Back over 10 years ago a local movie company Kinotonik produced this awesome 35mm underground film Sleeping Pills.  Featured in the soundtrack are several Obliq Recordings tunes.  The movie’s Director Michael Lauter has decided to put a REDUX version out on HD Bluray format!

    This is an Indiegogo funding project, so jump out there and support it! One neat thing about this movie is it was filmed in many unique Colorado architectural facilities that have since been destroyed! This film is preserving these interesting Colorado relics!

    Looking forward to finally having a copy of this great movie to watch again and hearing our music on a Bluray HD movie!


  • Obliq New and Re-releases with bonus tracks

    Howdy.

    Happy New Year!

    In celebration I recently posted about 100 free tunes on Bandcamp.com. A great site; these are free so preview them and download anything that you like! And tell your friends! Many of our older albums have been stacked with rare and unreleased material. The newest album is a collaboration with the great Denver band Equulei. Multicast and Freq Modif are represented here.  Look forward to more releases in 2014!

  • Picketwire Canyonlands meets Multicast

    Had a fun trip with the Delockroys and my family to the Picketwire Canyonlands south and west of La Junta, Colorado. We signed up for the US Forest Service’s new Guided Auto Tour which is an alternative to the 5+ mile hike in the heat of South-Central Colorado! This was very near the old Santa Fe Trail and features a bunch of history; old and “new”. The USFS employee was very knowledgeable in the Geology and History of the area including many legends and stories! I was a little bummed that we didn’t see the Petroglyphs that were advertised all over the brochures; those were along the trail you hike in; but I guess there needs to be some incentive to get folks to hike the trail too! :)

    The main reason for the trip was to see the Jurassic dinosaur tracks–Brontosaurus and Allosaurus side-by-side! These are the longest tracks by far in any Morrison formation and for sure the longest set anywhere in North America. There was some flooding in August that had not been cleaned up yet (not the terrible flooding we had along the Front Range in September) but it still was fantastic. Normally the Purgatoire River is a trickle and you don’t get your feed wet; that wasn’t the case as you’ll see this trip! Colorado has had a much wetter summer than in the past decade this year!

    The video says it all; enjoy! Feel free to comment on YouTube or this blog posting if you have any questions! Oh, and a shameless plug; my band Multicast‘s song “Spitfire” is the soundtrack to the video. Enjoy!


  • Obliq artists submit tracks for Namlook Tribute

    Carpe Sonum RecordsFor those into contemporary electronic music you may have heard of the Fax +49-69/450464 label (and many sublabels) out of Germany, run by Pete Namlook. In the mid-90s I remember while working at the record store getting in new disks WEEKLY, yes weekly, and we’d sell many copies to faithful fans and electronic music connoisseurs alike! The music is great and the label was strong!

    The music was mostly in the “Ambient” style but there were many great releases that were dancefloor oriented, trance and experimental. What drew me to the Fax label, aside from the great music, was Pete Namlook’s analog synth collection and also all the old-school artists that he introduced to the contemporary scene by doing collaboration releases such as Klaus Schulze’s Dark Side of the Moog series, etc.

    Unfortunately Pete Namlook passed away recently and his world distributor, Ear/Rational Music out of Colorado, decided to put together a tribute release on the new label Carpe Sonum inspired by and dedicated to Namlook. The tribute release will be a mega-box set including tracks from existing alumni of the Fax label and also with fan tracks. The vinyl set is going to be killer! The fan track’s inclusion on the 3 CDs is chosen completely by fan vote!

    Our bands have several tracks submitted for the release and would love for you to vote for us. The track names and artists have been scrambled to focus the voters on the music rather than a popularity contest; and I can’t publically post our tracks here, but if you contact me I’ll forward the ones to be sure to vote “Love It!” on. :)

    Here are the rules of the Namlook Tribute. Here are the tracks to listen to and vote on.

    Hopefully we make the cut!!!   Thanks for your vote!

    UPDATE:  We went through every track, here were our personal favorites:

    • esbrakoi, irblotso, jinnubot, plemmith
    • archibrot, bijorsti, demyalip, graklopy, gozbilto, graklopy

  • Freq Modif tracks on Soundcloud

    Been a while since my project Freq Modif has been active; but that sleeping beast awakes. Right now there is a Facebook page and a Soundcloud page. I have 25+ tracks ready to go online; I’m going to add them a few at a time–much like a glacier melts–so does the Freq Modif archive to create a constant stream…


  • New Multicast track – Low Rider in Cairo

    “Take a little trip, take a little trip with me…” ‘Low Rider in Cairo’ is a hard acid excursion through the streets of Cairo at night, with Multicast driving… The squelch control is set to 11.

    This was a fun session; taking off of the old “lowrider” classic!  We were in “jam” mode and came up with this acid line and melody.  A bit more rockin’ than some of the chill out Multicast material.

    Enjoy!


  • Multicast presents… Faster and faster

    Multicast sure likes their squidge acid tracks…here is another Multicast-style acid track just in time for your commute.  Best if listening on the interstate/autobahn going fast at night; or in the safety of your recliner at home….of course at high volume! Enjoy!

     


  • Multicast presents aural espianage… “The Spy”

    This track was from a live set. The originating track was part of the aural “wall of noise” tracks called Rotation ][ where we lit up the sound system and chilled everyone with a wall of sound. However, one show we took it in a completely different direction…which is the beauty of incorporating impromptu playing with hardware at live gigs.

     

    Hope you have your counter-surveillance equipment rockin’… Enjoy!
