Everyone my age got some relation to the MP3, from the 90s where the players where sold but you could not buy the files to modern DJ’s filling their USB sticks with hits.
Center of the Universe samples what we believe is the worlds first MP3 (with permission). FUNKY.MP3 was composed by J. Herre from Fraunhofer, the team that made the MP3 format, and in 1994 the track was distributed with the program Winplay 3 as a musical example.
Center of the Universe transformes this into a humoristic banger and video with great help of his friends WHALESHARKATTACKS & Equalizing Wizard!
Center of the Universe – NFT
Metronomicon Audio/Diger Digital
releasedate 31. jan 2022
How did it turn into the art craze of last year – when it was made in 2014? NFT is the newest word that very few people understand what means. It’s something you can own, but does it really exist? Does it use a lot of energy? Is it really art or just a mere representation?
Of course Center of the Universe got a track about this, and the philosophical problems that arises here, and about the money beeing made out of refurbishing old memes and .gifs.
The video for the track is also available as an NFT, on one of the low-energy platforms off course. This is not because the artist want to be a star of the crypto-art scene, but because it’s conceptually funny that a track that criticizes the phenomenon is also a part of it; it’s a funky synthesizer filled little contradiction, right there in the middle of popular culture.
First in a little two part documentary about how we made Interabangerz! Featuring Bjørn-Petter Tøsse on accordion and David Børresen on videosynth.
Flash Forward Endless Winther Extended Flutemix” is a remix by Ivar Winther, extending his remix of the catchy song “Flash Forward” to a full three hours! The slowed-down moods from this unlikely remix make us stand still in time, turning what was originally a club track into an immersive and meditative piece.
premiered on radiOrakel in Oct. 2021
