Binary Bebop is now available in the download store. This is the original mono version, available in both high-bitrate MP3 and FLAC.
There is only the album because it's just one track long. It's pay-what-you-want.
You can also listen to it at the Bangsplat RPM Jukebox, though it's the fake "stereo" version, and a fairly low bitrate MP3.

Music For The Monsters has been renamed (for now) Music For The Robots.

Music For The Monsters progresses. Really, really
It's shaping up to be a dance record for robots.
Read the blog entry on the latest track.
Also, you can now find Bangsplat on a variety of Web 2.0 sites
If you're not already signed up with any of these sites, FriendFeed is the best way to get updates, as it aggregates updates from other sites.

New Website Design
Web site redesign in progress. Please bear with me.
I'm getting rid of the frames and converting everything to CSS.
It's taken a while because CSS looks a little bit too much like a programming language to me, and there are already too many programming languages in my brain right now. I really don't want to learn another right now. I know that CSS isn't really a programming language, but with classes and inheritance, it's a little more than a mark up lanaguage.

The end-of-the-year thing didn't happen, of course.
But I did participate in this year's RPM Challenge. The challenge: record an album in a month.
The Bangsplat RPM challenge entry is called "Superstition Of Witchcraft". You can hear it in the RPM jukebox.
More details on the blog.

Music For The Monsters progresses. Really. The goal is to finish the music by the end of the year.
The main idea is what would robot music sound like? Would a robot be able to rock out to a raw AES bitstream? Would a robot composer use a different scale?
I am currently working on some ideas along these lines and will post some samples shortly.

Greetings from the abyss!
The last update here was over one year ago. Our deepest apologies. Many things have changed since then.
New work progresses, however slowly.
Bangsplat HQ has been relocated and the studio is nearly complete.
There is a new album in the works, called "Music For The Monsters."
Also, there are new items in the Bangsplat store.

Yesterday was Grey Tuesday. All day long, websites the world over turned gray to raise awareness of the situation regarding The Grey Album by DJ Danger Mouse.
DJ Danger Mouse remixed Jay-Z's The Black Ablum and The Beatles's famous self titled double album, known affectionately as The White Album.
Unfortunately, EMI controls copyright on the Beatles catalogue, and have objected to the album, forcing DJ Danger Mouse to withdraw it, thus intending to keep anyone from being able to hear it.
More information is available at the Grey Tuesday website.
You might find The Grey Album interesting. But how are you to decide for yourself?
Well, you can go download it right here.
The issues surrounding sampling and fair use in international copyright law are many and complex, and we shall not list them here, nor shall we try to convince you that sampling does not present the threat that record labels assume.
Instead, you should go learn more about intellectual property issues:
