In this video, starting with a simple melody, Happy Birthday, Nahre Sol leads the viewer through 16 techniques to create increasingly complex variations on a theme.
A disappointing year as far as I'm concerned, but the three albums that I do like are outstanding.
Some of my favourite albums of the year and the ones that I expect to listen to for some time to come were classical recordings.
An excellent year with many albums that I expect to play for some time to come.
A short list this year, but Aeriality by Anna Sigríður Þorvaldsdóttir is one of the best contemporary classical albums I've heard in a long while.
A solid year with good albums by Nick Cave and Arcade Fire and a return to form for the Arctic Monkeys and Daft Punk.
The Kindred EP by Burial is probably the album that I played most often this year. The Japanese CD also contains the Street Halo EP. Fin by John Talabot is another album that I listened to a lot.
