News at Volterock has been a little slow lately and here is why:
If you navigate your eyes to the top of this blog, you will see a list of new tabs for you to click. I've been working intently on these pages for the past few weeks and will continue to expand on them indefinitely:
The first is "EM Culture" which includes various youtube playlists I've been creating to encompass the history of electronic music culture, technology, spirtuality, and viral comedy. Beginning with mathematics, computing, audio recording, and voltage controlled analog synthesis; it then expands to the Avant-garde, club, demo scene, and rave culture into the 21st Century. There is also a section on visual aesthetics in motion with tutorials on various dances used within the culture. Lastly, there is a list of online communities by local region and genre to help you connect to your interests with an additional section on learning different electronic music genres. This is just the tip of the iceberg so go have yourself a look!
The "Radio" tab now has over 40 different radio stations, shows, and various audio streams categorized by geographic location and genre -- some of which are meta-stations that have multiple genres streaming simultaneously. You will never have nothing to listen to again.
Last is the "Producer's Training Lab" which will assist beginners, intermediate, and advanced music producers alike. You will find resources where you can practice ear training for free and teach yourself music theory. If you have a desire to build your own studio but find yourself lost in technological information, there is hope! Video tutorials, free sequencers & FX, help with lyrical ideas, MIDI routing, drumming techniques, and even coding can all be found there. A plethora of resources left unmentioned awaits you and this also will continue to grow.
If there is anything you would like me to add, let me know. Enjoy!
