This year’s Longitude Prize is focused on the growing problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria. They’ve put together a nice image, shown here, which showcases what they term ‘the ten most dangerous antibiotic resistant bacteria’. You can read more detail on each of them here:http://www.nesta.org.uk/news/antibiotic-resistant-bacteria
The prize offers a £10 million prize fund for the development of a cheap, accurate, and easy to use bacterial infection test kit, which will allow doctors to prescribe the correct antibiotics at the correct time for patients, to try to help minimise the development of antibiotic resistance.
Some say, he’s a coke bottle on the weekends..
oh I’m so funny, made myself chuckle
Just a little jam testing out a patch I programmed for my Roland JX-8P. I called the patch ICE SHIMMR—lots of resonance and icy upper harmonics, thanks to a bit of oscillator sync. I’ll probably put this to use in something else, but for now I just wanted to see how it would work. Programmed a simple drumbeat on the Volca Beats and pounded out some dark wave stuff.
No external effects in this at all—just the onboard chorus from the JX-8P, which is in “blinking light” Unison mode, for maximum fatness.
(Yes, I know the room is a mess. Sorry.)
Just programming some patches for the JX-8P. Just awesome 80s sound. #synth

Dies irae, dies illa… #synth style. Some experiments with the #jx8p as drone. The #microbrute is the “voice” if the chant. It runs through a delay, then through a phaser. The dry microbrute sound goes out the headphone out and is mixed in for reinforcement. Pie Jesu domine, Dona eis requiem.
My first effort with the new Roland JX-8P. I started off programming the pad and ended up with a snippet of soundtrack to a sci-fi noir/thriller show that exists only in my mind.
Drums from the Volca Beats and the Monotribe, the latter of which also supplies blips and bleeps. The Monotribe runs through a Malekko Ekko 616 analog delay pedal.
