Re: Mini CDs

I would love that. Japan seems to have gotten a lot of the 3 inch CDs.

Well it even extended the numbering, starting off with microtronics 12. Some on the second one have slightly more apparent melody lines, some more noisy.

They both say "stereo recorded music for links and bridges". Interesting that they also don't mention Broadcast anywhere on the label.

What do I think of them? Well it's not like I listen to them. But when I have, It mostly makes me think about the songs that could surround them. They are quite varied in their ideas and sounds. They are interesting. I like 19 and 20.

There was talk on the Broadcast board about Microtronics 20 sounding like a Carl Orff children's music piece. http://forum.broadcast.uk.net/index.php?p=/discussion/146/microtronics-20/p1

Re: Mini CDs

I see that the second one was released in 2005 around Tender Buttons, so I can see that many of the slightly harsher sounds are like some of the sounds on TB. The other was from 2003.

These were Broadcast's attempt to produce their own library albums, after what had probably been years of listening to this stuff.

I always thought Microtronics 12 owed a nod to this fine LP:

Re: Mini CDs

I can't believe I forgot meanchico sent me a 3" cd compilation a long time ago, it's great! He has a real knack for these things. Another for my mini cd display.

Re: Mini CDs

those were fun to make. I think the rule was that no track could be over 1 minute.

what was the image on the one I sent you? I think I gave out about 10 of them.

makes me want to make more!

Re: Mini CDs

It was a boy with a puppet, looks like from the 60's and has a page number and heading "What I Can Do". And you called the mix Put Me in Your Pocket, and first track was that song by April Stevens. :)

Re: Mini CDs

I just put them up on display. Room for more, and I just got a Mum, and The Ventures.

Old school.
