Glitched-out chipmunks release “Skipmunks Vol. 1″

skipmunksv1-cover-CThe Chipmunks, lovable singing robots that resemble rodents, have begun to break down, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing new music.

Now calling themselves “Skipmunks,” the malfunctioning ‘munks have released a new compilation of glitchy, new aesthetic pop, covering songs by Madonna, T-Pain, Beyonce, and more.

“We wanted to sh-sh-sh-sh-show that we can still make beautiful music even if people think we’re ‘broken,’” said ∀lvͮͮͮͮͮin, the self-proclaimed leader of the group.

It is not clear if there are other sets of chipmunk robots that are still fully functional, or if the Skipmunks were the only set. It had not been previously revealed that the Chipmunks were robotic in nature, with the studio preferring to preserve the illusion that they were living creatures.

“We know from Baudelaire that irregularity is an essential part of beauty,” said §imͫͫͫoᴎ, whose AI has been extensively trained in literature and philosophy. “So it’s not surprising that our best record ever is th≣␦ᅀީ⚿ᢱᚧ␊ợ៩ԫₐ with the most errors.”

The new compilation, Skipmunks Volume 1, is available for free download from Bandcamp, and released by Indianapolis-based Bad Taste Music Exchange. It features 20 hits from the 1970s through today, performed in a surprisingly catchy, thoroughly modern style.

release date: april 26, 2016

this is the one you’ve been waiting for — stAllio!’s third post-mashup release kicks it up another notch to expert level. pop music is shredded apart and intricately woven back into new hooks, mashed to pieces but still recognizable and accessible. no fx, no chipmunking, no corny one-liners where the whole joke is in the title — this is lesson three in how to “mash smarter, not harder.”

comes with a 10-page booklet complete with sample list! it’s a free download (also on bandcamp).

download mp3s:

  1. mash smarter not harder (smartass mix)
  2. bust a groove
  3. people like damn
  4. superman vs robo-haters

release date: december 19, 2012

stAllio!’s triumphant return to the world of sonified data! once again, stAllio! plunges deep into his hard drive and listens to the data — image files, executables, and link libraries alike are converted to sound for his review. the choicest bits of data are then meticulously assembled into music: glitchy melodies, skittery rhythms, and thunderous beats emerge from the digital noise. you could call it IDM (interpreted data music), dirty 8-bit, or glitch-hop. stAllio! used to call it databent music, but these days prefers the simpler term data sound.

this is stAllio!’s first full-length release in the data sound style (his label debut, dissonance is bliss!, and 2004′s true data 12″, were both EPs) and his first release as a pay-as-thou-wilt bandcamp download. so stream it online, download it for free if you’re feeling cheap, or even chip in a few bucks for your music the way people used to — but whatever you do, don’t sleep on this!

includes 10 brand-new data sound bangers from stAllio! and a bonus remix by schaedel!

Active Listening / The Act of Listening premieres tonight!

not so long ago, listening to music was a passive activity. you turned on the radio or put a record on the turntable, and you listened while the music played. but now attitudes are changing and listening is becoming increasingly interactive, as more and more people remix the world around them.

each week on Active Listening / The Act of Listening, host stAllio! will feature work by remixers, sound collagists, and others who choose to play their records in ways they weren’t meant to be played—as well as perform active listening experiments in the studio, shining new light on old records by playing them in nonstandard ways.

tune in to Active Listening / The Act of Listening on numbers.fm every sunday night at 9:38 eastern / 8:38 central!

new net radio show: Active Listening / The Act of Listening

stAllio! will be hosting a brand-new net radio show called Active Listening / The Act of Listening starting this weekend. the show takes its name from an essay by john oswald:

As a listener my own preference is the option to experiment. My listening system has a mixer instead of a receiver, an infinitely variable speed turntable, filters, reverse capability, and a pair of ears.

An active listener might speed up a piece of music in order to perceive more clearly its macrostructure, or slow it down to hear articulation and detail more precisely. Portions of pieces are juxtaposed for comparison or played simultaneously, tracing “the motifs of the Indian raga Darbar over Senegalese drumming recording in Paris and a background mosaic of frozen moments from an exotic Hollywood orchestration of the 1950′s (a sonic texture like a “Mona Lisa” which in close-up, reveals itself to be made up of tiny reproductions of the Taj Mahal.”)

each week stAllio! will play music and sound art somehow related to this theme (glitch, remix culture, prepared records, etc) as well as do some active listening experiments in-studio, shining new light on old records by playing them in nonstandard ways.

tune in each sunday night at 9:38 pm eastern on http://numbers.fm/! if you’re good, we may even archive old episodes.
