The Dr. Seuss Purity Test (PG-13)

Posted by Martin Poulter on 31 December 2003

Clearing out the inbox for a new year, I found this witty variation on the classic Purity Test. “Have you done it on live TV? Have you done it whilst you pee?” King of the internet sex tests, however, has to be the Urban Spelunker Sex Survey.

Super Mixer

You have to navigate through some Flash to get to it, but this is one of my Diversions of the year. From a pallet of chords, beats and noises, you create an eight track-mix in your browser, including stereo positioning. You can then save it for rating by other users. The possibilities are impressively broad, as shown by the gallery of users’ mixes. My attempt is called “blissful”. This is part of the site for dance act BLU MAR TEN.

Martin’s Music: MP3s

Posted by Martin Poulter on 23 December 2003

http://www.weird.co.uk/music/

At last, all the MP3s of my music in one place. These are tasters of the dozens and dozens of tracks I’ve done over the years, the present selections being mostly old and cheesy compared to my new stuff.

Star Guitar video

Posted by Martin Poulter on 13 December 2003

A highlight of the fantastic new DVD compilation of director Michel Gondry is this video for the Chemical Brothers, which has become one of my all time favourite short films.

You see the French landscape passing in the view from a train window, but something isn’t right: there are multiple copies of buildings, bridges and other trains. What’s more, these are appearing on screen in time with elements of the music; a shed for a bass drum, a telegraph pole for a snare, a person on a train platform for each note of the sung melody. It takes many viewings to take it all in.

The idea of visual music is not new, but the stunningly realistic computer graphics make this a music of everyday things, rather than of abstract shapes.

Another site ‘translator’ but quite amusing if you were ever a fan of the A-Team.
