Time to get things rolling! On Saturday, the 31st of August Floppy Totaal will visit WORM in Rotterdam for an event entirely devoted to floppy disk music. We call it 'Floppy Totaal: Magnetic Flux'. Adam Frankiewicz, Sascha Müller and Remute are part of a two part program that consists of workshops, talks and performances. For more information and tickets check: https://worm.org/production/floppy-totaal-magnetic-flux-workshop/ & https://worm.org/production/floppy-totaal-magnetic-flux/
This doesn't have much new compared to my posts from this weekend, but here they are ordered and coherent.
I also posted some audio samples: http://ajroach42.com/floppycast-examples/
Keep in mind that both samples will sound pretty much horrific, but also that each sample is around 100kb for more than a minute of audio.
I prefer the Opus file to the mp3 file, as it's a little less muddy during speech (but ruins music.)
Well, what do you know! Some video's of Floppy Totaal's past are still floating around the web. Here's a very exclusive one from 2015 by the incomparable Kai Nabuko aka. Toxic Chicken: https://t.co/5nzWkueYZ6 Good times!
Floppy Totaal is a Rotterdam based research project that investigates the reuse and re-purposing of 'outdated' technology as a cultural phenomenon.
