TV

May 20th, 2010 Posted 12:08 pm In lifestyle Politica Tehnologie By Nwanda

“Televiziunea detine un monopol de facto asupra modelarii creierelor unei parti foarte importante a populatiei. Imaginea ne poate face sa vedem si sa credem in existenta a ceea ce ne arata. Televiziunea care se pretinde un instrument de inregistrare si redare a realitatii se transforma intr-un instrument de creare a ei. Astfel, televiziunea poate, paradoxal, sa ascunda aratand altceva decat ceea ce ar trebui sa arate daca ar fi cu adevarat preocupata de ceea ce pretinde ca face: adica sa informeze”(Pierre Bourdieu).

R.I.P. Technics 1200/1210

November 29th, 2009 Posted 4:34 am In Tehnologie By Chill Will

Se pare ca vestile proaste lovesc in continuare, de data asta pe posesorii de platane si pe cei care isi puneau bani la ciorap sa-si cumpere niste d’astea. Vestea proasta vine direct de la Panasonic care au anuntat (mai mult sau mai putin oficial) cum ca vestitele Technics 1200 si Technics 1210 for fi scoase din productie intr-un timp foarte scurt, mai exact ultimele platane 1200/1210 vor iesi pe poarta fabricii in Februarie 2010. Motivul, unul deloc surprinzator, NU SE VAND, mai mult ca sigur ca CDJ-urile si toata tehnologia noua si-au spus cuvantu in privinta asta. Mai jos 3 comentarii luate aleator de pe niste site-uri de specialitate.



———————————————————————————————————————————

The legendary Technics 1200 turntable is dead, according to rumours spreading across the Web today. Panasonic is reportedly discontinuing the Technics 1200 and Technics 1210 decks in February 2010.

The rumour started among Australian clubbers at ravey-davey message forum Global Hardstyle. We’ve asked Panasonic but are yet to hear anything official, although we notice that Panasonic hasn’t got round to creating a new Technics Web page since 2007.

The Technics 1200 launched in 1972, followed by the 1200MK2 in 1978. Quickly becoming popular among DJs, the various forms of 1200 have sold over 3 million units. The direct-drive turntable has a special place in the hearts of DJs, rappers, producers and vinyl junkies of all ages for its reliability and durability.

The age of digital DJs has taken its toll on vinyl, but the much-loved format refuses to lay down and die. Is this a sad day for the DJ world or is it about time too? Mix and scratch your Technics memories in the comments.

———————————————————————————————————————————

Punk’s not dead, neither drum&bass, but Technics on the other hand put a cross over these two turntable models we’ll so turn to treat as collectables from now on: SL-1200 and SL-1210. Yes the much apreciated direct drive turntables that made adiffrence for artists like Roc Raida, Q-Bert and so many djs out there will cease to be manufactured[as Panasonic Corp announced] starting February next year. We still have left the other models in the Technics menu, yet this should be called a historical moment.

———————————————————————————————————————————

The DJing community and the greater dance music scene mourns the loss of a clubbing staple today. No, Steve Aoki hasn’t hung up his record bag, but rather news has emerged that iconic turntable manufacturers Technics will be stopping production on their universally loved Technics 1200s and Technics 1210s.

In a statement re-posted on dance board Global Hardstyle, the company behind the production of the Technics turntables Panasonic announced that they would cease the manufacture of Tehcnics turntables in February next year, citing an increasing decline in sales as the motivation behind the line’s demise.

The Australian arm of Panasonic issued a similar statement today, expressing their disappointment that the brand’s 35 years-and-running legacy was to be put to bed.

“It is a sad day today but due to low sales globally in analogue turntables a decision to stop production has been made on Technics Turntables,” Panasonic spokesman Ian North explained. “For Australia this means we will receive our last shipment in March.”

With the disappearance of Technics decks now imminent it’s becoming increasingly clear that the digital juggernaut is showing no signs of slowing down. We’ve already heard from trance icon Tiesto how he’s abandoned the ‘outdated’ medium in favour and gone for the ease and accessibility of digital tune libraries. Indeed, the new (and might we just say super-sexy) CDJ-2000s from Pioneer look to be making things easier than ever before with USB stick functionality, employed just last weekend by another digital convert Sasha.

Mda, cam de cacat! Parca incep sa-i inteleg intr-un fel pe nenorocitii aia de colectionari de viniluri de prin state sau Europa care o ardeau cu “Fuck Serato mp3, KEEP IT DUSTY!”, toate au un scop. Asta e, trecem pe Vestax :)

P.S.: Grigo, u lucky muhfucka! :)

Graffiti cat ai clipi

November 13th, 2009 Posted 6:39 pm In Graffiti Tehnologie By Nwanda

“Art is a tool of empowerment and social change, and I consider myself blessed to be able to create and use my work to promote health reform, bring awareness about ALS and help others.” – Tony Quan, aka Tempt One

Tehnologia are si partile ei bune, fara indoiala. Pe langa armele avansate produse cu scopul de umple buzunarele unora si a mai reduce din numarul mare de locuitori ai Terrei, stiinta lucreaza si in scopul umanitatii. Cateva creiere luminate s-au adunat si au pus bazele unui proiect numit “The EyeWriter”.

Cine zice ca trebuie sa-ti folosesti mainile ca sa faci graffiti?

Totul a pornit de Tony Quan aka TEMPTONE un artist din scoala veche care sufera de ALS (o boala care i-a paralizat tot corpul, mai putin ochii). Ar fi multe de spus, dar prefer sa va lasa sa vedeti cu ochii vostri despre ce este vorba. Info complete gasiti aici.

Un nou instrument muzical

November 4th, 2009 Posted 1:51 pm In Muzica Tehnologie turntablism By Nwanda

Doamnelor si domnilor, din ciclul inventii date dracului, azi am deosebita placere de a va prezenta un nou instrument muzical despre care sunt convins ca nu aveti cunostinta. Nu e pasare, nu e avion, e scratchophone!!! Pentru toti obsedatii care nu pot nici macar sa se cace, fara sa se gandeasca la scratch-uri & cut-uri, acest instrument portabil vine sa le satisfaca dorintele intunecate si fanteziile bolnave :) ACum pot sta linistiti pe WC si in acelasi timp sa mai bage si un scratch. Tare, nu? Dracovenia e compusa dintr-un platan, un brat de picup, un mixer si 2 difuzoare. Daca aveti 1255 Euro sau parinti bogati, puteti sa-l comandati de aici.

Q-Scratchophone-339x400

Pic1-v1-21-355x400

Iata si niste demouri:

Hip Hop All Star, un nou joc pentru mobil

November 4th, 2009 Posted 1:06 pm In Jocuri Tehnologie By Nwanda

Va aratam cu ceva timp in urma o aplicatie pentru Iphone, o simulare de MPC, cu care poti sa produci beat-uri de pe telefonul mobil. Recent a fost lansat in State un joc de mobil destinat aspirantilor la statutul de DJ, o solutie mult mai ieftina pentru cei care nu intentioneaza sa devina profesionisti si nu sunt dispusi sa investeasca o caruta de bani in platane, mixer si discuri. Jocul pare destul de caterinca, mai ales ca poti sa faci battle cu un alt user – n-am inteles exact cum, probabil cu ajutorul bluetooth-ului.

Scratch-uri cu cap

October 20th, 2009 Posted 12:32 pm In Caterinca Muzica Productie Tehnologie Video By Nwanda

Neurosonics Audiomedical este un proiect mai ciudatel, dar foarte inovativ si misto. Un grup de artisti (DJ’s, Street artists, mc’s & beat boxers, specialisti in sound design, animatori, producatori audio-video, s.a.) cu extrem de multa imaginatie folosesc cu multa dibacie cele mai moderne tehnici si tehnologii, pentru a-si duce la bun sfarsit procesul creativ.

Singurul lor videoclip aparut pana in prezent, rezultatul unui urias efort comun, nu este altceva decat un episod SF usor-dement, cu o doza consistenta de umor.

Viitorul este acum

Doar doua dintre proiectele care sunt pe punctul de a ne schimba radical experienta traiului.

Oblong Industries dezvolta urmatorul mediu de operare spatial. Unul din fondatorii companiei a servit drept consultant stiintific pentru productia filmului “Minority Report”. Cei care au vizionat filmul vor recunoaste similitudinile.



Binecunoscuta Microsoft alaturi de studiourile Lionhead transforma decorul industriei media prin proiectul “Natal”. Platforma digitala cartografiaza persoanele din raza sa in timp real iar o forma incipienta de inteligenta artificiala comunica intr-un mod fara precedent cu acestea.
