4mat - Decades

... on a loop! =D

Few days ago I finally received my copy of 4mat's new album called "Decades" from Amazon. Yes, physical copy! =)

For the past so many [I don't even know exactly how long] years I've been enjoying 4mat's music, so when I found out that for the first time he's releasing physical copies of his album, I figured I absolutely had to have one. =) doesn't carry the CD, so as usual it was back to the .com, hence the long wait.

Decadeds Cover. And my current desktop wallpaper.

For the past few days I've been looping the album, sometimes on it's own and sometimes mixed with various Kahvi releases. And I just can't get enough of it! As the album name suggests, the compilation is such that it really gives you the feeling of listening to the essence of 4mat's evolving music during the past decades. And as I expected, the tracks are just fabulous! So if you're a fan of chiptunes, electronic music or generally great music, you're sure to enjoy this.

If you haven't already, go get yourself the album. Now. Preferably physical copy. ;)

I guess for anyone who's into both robots and J.J. Abrams, this is definitely big news. And it's not all that new, so I don't even know how I didn't know about it already! =P A good friend of mine just sent me the link to an article, about J.J. Abrams latest movie project, called "Boilerplate". 

Supposedly, this movie is based on a graphic novel which is the story of world's first robot, and his adventures along side some interesting characters and mixing with certain historical events. Here's the article, check it out!

So now I'm very much looking forwards to seeing the movie. =) I think it will probably turn out to be pretty darn fantastic! Can't wait... can't wait.... =D

Yes, I HAVE seen Inception! =D I just didn't want to write about it because given the sophisticated plot of this movie, it's so easy to cause spoilers, and it would be an unforgivable crime to do that to such incredibly brilliant scenario.

A couple of weeks ago [thanks to xo's persistence! ;) ] we went to see Inception, and the only thing I'm going to tell you about it is that it's one of the most ingenious, unique movies that I have ever seen. I have every intention of getting me the Blu-ray once it's out, as this movie is worth watching numerous times.

I'd also like to mention that if you enjoyed the Matrix trilogy, chances are you'll enjoy inception too. In a way, I see Inception as Matrix inverse. ;)

Oh, and here's the proof I did go to see it... =))

Praan [Stream of Life]

I would imagine most of you have already heard this song since it was composed for the 2008 "Where the hell is Matt" clip. But I also think that the clip's sheer amusement, causes the music not to shine as much as it might, if you're listening to it with closed eyes. So yes, I recently re-discovered "Praan" by "Garry Schyman", featuring the beautiful voice of "Palbasha Siddique". The music takes my breath away, and the lyrics that are in fact from a poem by "Rabindranath Tagore", are truly divine.

Lyrics & Translation:

Praan [Bangali]

Bhulbona ar shohojete
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shotto-shundu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

Stream of Life [English]

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

Satori :: Koiban

Time for another ASM2010 favourite! =) I was previously informed that Satori was going to have a new demo for ASM, and I was waiting in anticipation to see it. When finally the demo showed up on the ASM TV stream, me and a bunch of friend, as expected, went "Whooohooohooow.... haaaaaaa..... aaaaaaaa.... woooooooo .... wooooohooooooooowwwwww .... hoooooo ..... waaaaaaaaa...." =D

I'm not going to say anything more. In fact I can't, even if I want to. It's completely impossible to describe something like this in words. So if you haven't had a chance to see this super fantastic awesome demo yet, here it is. Check it out! =)

Happiness is Around the Bend

Oh yes, it certainly is! =)

It's been yet another silent period due to my extreme lack of time, and what better reason to break this silence than to... well, LETS TALK ASD! =D The new ASD demo by the name "Happiness is Around the Bend" was released yesterday at the Assembly 2010 demo party. And early this morning I got the happy news that the demo has in fact won 1st place! =D YAAAAAAAAAAY!

I've been experiencing a bit of a mental struggle over which one of the ASD demos is my favourite, and it's a tie between Life Force and Happiness. I finally decided to leave it at that. It's just a tie. I can't like either one of the 2 more than the other, and that's just the way it's going to be. =D Where Life Force made my heart explode out of my chest and brought tears to my eyes, Happiness made me jump around and throw my fists in the air. On one hand I think the 2 demos are too different to be able to make a comparison, on the other hand they're too connected to make a comparison! It's like they're the 2 sides of the same coin... So, watch the new demo and decide for yourself. Winking smile

Oh, and... ehmmm.... well.... I just have got to say this since Soren mentioned something to me... [fair warning: brash opinionated remark following], in case you've been reading Pouet threads... don't let certain comments about the music bias your opinion. aMUSiC and Leviathan have done an otherworldly beautiful job with the music. Big Kudos to them both. <3 <3 =)

Of course there were a few more demos in ASM this year that really took my breath away. I will post about them next.....
