I forgot to mention that much of Claviq’s material we posted a few days ago is a little older. To keep things fresh we’ve added a bonus track. Enjoy!
Also, hit up Claviq’s bandcamp featuring some newer tracks.

Another glitch event is starting up in the Czech Republic! Stop by if you’re in the city of Brno in March.
Protože moravskou metropoli poctí svojí návštěvou zasloužilý dj Eklektik Fluidum, využíváme této příležitosti k uspořádání večírku zasvěcenému IDM, glitch, minimalu a jiné netypické elektronické muzice.
Na úvod večera Vás rozehřeje houpavý glitch hop a glitch-out, který v průběhu večera volně přepluje přes dubstep a IDM v tanečnější formy elektronické muziky.

Claviq, the very young and exceptionally talented Czech producer, brings us gifts. He’s been featured on numerous radio stations including Czech Radio 1 and tonight, exlusively for Glitch.CZ, he brings us ‘Presence People‘. Just a small sample of his original tracks and remixes. Stylistically Claviq likes to experiment with breaks, dubstep, glitch, breaks and downtempo. And if you’d like more, most of his releases can be found on Amenorea records.
Expect some 320s in the upcoming week. Stay tuned!

Although the Launchpad can certainly hold it’s own as a controller in session mode for live, many music makers out there were hoping for a more accessible and cheaper version of the Monome. I think it’s still too early to judge how well the Launchpad accomplishes this goal, however there are already many Monome emulators available. If you have Max or Max4Live, you’ll be able to run an emulator such as Nonome, Nomepad, or Monolive. There are various monome patches out there and each emulator can handle some patches better than others. The ability of the Launchpad to emulate the Monome is somewhat dependent on the capabilities of the emulator.
From my experience, the most challenging patch to emulate has been MLR-V. Of course, I’ve got pretty high demands. I’m not looking for just any old MLR patch, but one that will draw its clips from Ableton Live. For over a month, members of the Monome forums have been hard at work. Check out the MLR-style chopping if Live Clips for the patch that does so. I’m sure the input of additional Max programmers would be greatly appreciated in the effort to perfect the patch.
In the meantime, and even if you don’t have Max4Live there’s a work around, albeit a slightly clumsy one, to get MLR style mixing in Live. Edison, a recent guest on DJTechTools shows how he used follows actions to get a similar kind of control. Take a look at 3:50 of the YouTube video for his explanation. If you decide to take the follow action route, make sure you’ve got your quantization set to the right mode.
Eskmo and EPROM are two of my all time favorite producers. And they’re anticipated to release some new material on Warp Records in the new future. Both absolutely deserve to be up there with the greats. Head over to Bwomp Beats for an exclusive interview with Eskmo, the very down to earth music maker. And don’t to forget to check out Eskmo’s free Amon Tobin remix.
Update from Warp: “San Francisco producers EPROM and Eskmo are to release their double A-side 12″ on Warp next week (22nd/23rd February) featuring their respective tracks ‘Hendt’ and ‘Lands and Bones featuring Swan’.”
In March Glitch.CZ will be moving to a new location, so it’s time to say “good-bye” to the lovely Brick Bar by getting utterly glitch-faced. To help us in this endeavor we’ve invited some of Prague’s finest including MikeH, Claviq and Denoir. Expect full on original productions by the talented Claviq.
