From Berne, Swizterland: Starfrosch

From the capital of Swizterland comes Starfrosch. A self-described "indie net-audio community". A lot of stuff here, but because my Swiss Deutsche is a little rusty, I focus mostly on the music. There are tons of different netlabels and indie net releases on their podcast pages. From Starfrosch:

You're still a sheep. We'll give you one chance. Stop making baa, baa and be a Starfrosch. Come on, you sheep.

I need a podcast that will teach me Swiss Deutsche so I can really join the party.

From the Netherlands: SoundTransit

This is a very cool audio site. Imagine you are going on a trip. First thing you do is go online to book an itinerary. SoundTransit is the front end of a database that consists of geo-tagged found sound, audio samples from all over the world. The front-end looks and feels like one of the online flight booking applications. The geo-tagging allows SoundTransit to match ambient recordings from the database to your intinerary. My favorite so far was a trip from Boston to Paris via Tashkent. The sounds began on a Sunday afternoon in Boston's Chinatown, smoothly flowed to the sounds of rain on a tin roof in Tashkent and finished with passengers waiting for a delayed flight in De Gaulle International in Paris. The product is a single, smooth mp3 produced by SoundTransit on-the-fly once you have selected an itinerary. It is a marvelous organizing principle for a sound database that appeals to the imagination. Take a trip soon.

Common Content: Catalog of Creative Commons Licensed Content

The creative commoners over at Creative Content sponsor an open catalog for Creative Commons licensed material. It is searchable by category and subcategory. Naturally, there is a music category which should be useful in the fish-eyed browsing that goes into BSWC.

From France: Musique-libre.com

From across the length and breadth of France (with some other continental sources thrown in for good measure) comes musique-libre.com. A tremendous variety of music that is very well organized. Great stuff with Creative Commons licensing. If you are looking for a sense of what is happening musically in France, this is your "E" ticket. Dip your toe--En Bord de Nationale by sam.

WeirdoMusic Compilation Release: Numerology

I haven't had time to really dig in to this yet, but there is some fun material on this release that was conceived and compiled by Ton Ruckert. Twenty tracks on the release and so far for me the standout is a track by Messer Chups called Contact 1,2,3,4.

WM has this to say about Numerology:

"According to the Britannica Concise Encyclopedia "modern numerology attaches a series of digits to an inquirer's name and uses these, along with the date of birth, to reveal the person's true nature and prospects (using a method analogous to that of the Greek and Hebrew alphabets in which each letter also represented a number)." It also says that "numerology is based on the assertion by Pythagoras that all things can be expressed in numerical terms, because they are ultimately reducible to numbers." In his mystery school Pythagoras taught his students that nothing could exist without number, he believed that the foundation for almost all of philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, music and creative accomplishment could not exist without the divine organization of progression expressed in numbers. The scientific believe that numerology explains everything runs all the wayto Kepler, when the universal working assumption still was that God left his telephone number (as it were) in the workings of the heavens.

Well, you will probably ask, where does that leave us? Firmly in the past, I suppose, but still, only gather 2, 3, 4 and 5 together, and the mumbo-jumbo artists of the world will construct a theory, a conspiracy, or a piece of magic, that's where this compilation comes in: enjoy!"
