And the Heavens Open Up..

.. There has to be a catch, seriously. In a lifetime of understanding compromise from accessing and downloading freebies I am SURE that the deliciousness of JUCE development software has to have some copyright and license wrangling attached. Nonetheless, I am favourably impressed by this set of packages.

Why is this of note, one may ask?

Wren Rock is taking the step of moving into independent audio software creation. Suffice it to say, along with an upcoming patent application I feel I must be prepared in the software arena to provide the new technologies available from said technology. This will in essence be quite the task, re-learning programming is not hard, but creating industry standard software is an involved endeavour, one I undertake with relish.

Wren Rock Software is due to be proprietry software but at a reasonable pricing structure. Music should be the focus.

N.B. I am, to be fair, looking at a LOT of options. I may chronicle my journey, if the community so wishes!

Until then, feel free to peruse my Soundcloud, tracks upcoming soon!

I.P and the art of Territory

I know, deep down, that this page does not receive traffic often, moreover I only drum up interest with matters of public concern from time to time. I think it is clear to see that I am a lefty, fringe theorist of the human condition with techy disposition. At the moment that is all the world sees of me, when it pays any attention.
Now empty promises are more widespread than rats and humans combined on this planet, and I hope to assure you that in the Second year of Wren Rock’s existential dalliance with reality, it has gained firm foundation.
Always remember, that public statements could be interpreted as promises to the public, but these are more I have put on here, they are promises I made to myself. To complete these obligations I have undergone some huge shifts:

  1. Built a new P.C with the best functionality for my desired software.
  2. Added the most streamline system I can while avoiding the idiotic system fudging of microsoft (Credit http://www.linuxmint.com).
  3. Sourced a software D.A.W from a company that has, from the beginning of my digital music career Proper, enabled me to pursue the craft I have dreamed of realising in my life’s work. (Credit to http://www.mutools.com)
  4. Saved and invested in Presonus Audio Monitors, which after a solid serious two weeks worth of research both reported to be, and proved to be, fantastically clear and balanced audio speakers. For the Price, well worth the investment compared to industry competitors (Credit http://www.Presonus.com)
  5. Theorised, and realised an entirely new method of audio treatment for use in post production, post mix and even at other stages of audio treatment. With I.P and Copyright Secured for the idea, patent being applied for to retain rights to the invention proper in all variations.
  6. Created a new idea for an audio effect, known only as ‘Slam’ and I’ll say no morefor the time being.

I have had an eventful few years, and with the surrounding scenery shifting I feel it is paramount in my interests to introduce my inventions to show exactly what I dream of.

Peace and Love to you and all your family.

Recorded History.

Don’t worry..

It’s not political!

This is (actually) about music, and it’s about musical history and preserving it. Somehow, along the line I came up with an question, and it turns out I wasn’t the first to have this question. I did, however, come up with a new way to fix the problem it addresses. As a result I have been attempting to create a proof of concept through the audio software at my disposal.

It was on the accomplishment on the basic idea, and it’s proof, that I based this whole WrenRock enterprise, having faith in my producing capability as result.

Now, having updated my software, I have EXPANDED on my prior proof of concept to create this claim. I will be releasing Mastered tracks from historic recordings to show my ability in noise removal audio technology. This may take months and years to produce, as I feel obligated in this to extend this to as many recordings as I am able to discover. As a service to historians and gathered listening humans, I wish to create Signal/Noise reduced copies of such important records for the world to witness and ponder on. The first fruits are beginning to ripen, ready for the plucking. I cannot wait to share!

Apple Stole My Music. No, Seriously.

Headphones on Laptop
If you accept this, then Ctrl-Alt-Del your expectations of ever having music for yourself.

“The software is functioning as intended,” said Amber. “Wait,” I asked, “so it’s supposed to delete my personal files from my internal hard drive without asking my permission?” “Yes,” she replied. …

Further erudite commentary made by The Register

So there are two immediate problems with this Snafu. Firstly it breaches the trust and boundaries of control any person feels they rightly have over the lifetime of records and keepsakes, your entire musical history, dissapeared. Think about it, every goto track for mood or situation, be it in anguish or joy? Stolen. Apple claim it’s okay, but this is a major transgression and a threat to the concept of personal property, privacy and generally? Peace from surveillance (however automated).

Secondly, and of no less importance, is the fact that original intellectual property is being Stolen. Without permission copyrighted media is being acquired without permission which, if the roles were reversed, regardless of intention would incur in massive legal reprisals. This policy is unecessary and using unsubstantiated reasons, this marauding method is little more than wholesale corporate greed forgetting whose backgarden is runs around in. This must stop.

Learning Post Tag, dropbox service!

Update, I have a big bubbling  48gig dropbox space ready for use. The outcome being I can be reached online with work as soon as upload! Functionality is established 🙂 x

Minor editorial to the page layout until such time as pages can be populated by relevant data. Now the site is more streamlined and effective!

 

Promotions! the least part of my enthusiasm in trying to reach people. I would much rather talk to them up close, but  these artificially cross-linked complexes allow people to find me.

I guess the idea of visibility is definitely still a core perception from my childhood, being  a bit of a rehabilitated introvert with misanthropy dripping from my every pore.

This post serves to help me get onto the wordpress database and learn a little more about being a findable service, it doesn’t serve much more.If I get the hang of this I might actually get somewhere as an online entity, that said, have a picture of a kitten.

1st ever update!

Hello!, and welcome to the first (‘first’) update to my monthly blog, featuring the latest in views and events Wren Rock has a hand in, a view on or simply a joke to share about. This may convert up to a Vlog of sorts but honestly I don’t have that much time for make-up. A note to all readers out there, feel free to leave comments! the blogoshpere has been withering thanks to the onslaught of less articulate forms for writing, so do get in contact, challenge my views, asking questions and please do respect the views expressed by all as we are all seeking the best version of truth to be had.

Onwards!

THIS MONTH
It was my birthday, (AW!) yes this semi-aged masculinised humanoid has weathered 32 orbits of the nearest star WITHOUT BURTSING INTO FLAME, often. So? in the light of long-held (and rarely shared) ambitions, passions and such I created Wren Rock with a little help from co-creators who were in the mood to help. Having dabbled in spot-checking other peoples audio and music efforts, I couldn’t help but realise I took great joy and personal pride in helping other peoples work become the best they could possibly be. While I have had many years of closetted audio creation and production, and devised my own method of noise removal for audio recordings and signals, it felt better for now to help those struggling with the final stages of polishing their masterpieces with aplomb. So Wren Rock is effectively a birthday gift, a project and a business all for my own development and enjoyment, and I look forward to it!

Dub Pistols.
Dub Pistols have definitely been a presence underlining a lot of the club/gig nights across the UK whenever they tour. A dream combination of Reggae, Ska, Funk and Drum and Bass. Think if the Specials, The Prodigy and Faithless got in to a Jam. I count them as being one of the best acts to see for sheer presence and energy without the trappings (yet) of being mass appeal. Underground without being obscure, fun without being pop. Go see A.S.A.P I reckon.

Freestylers.
Local to my locale on the 8th of this month coming, definitely need to go see! Creators of some of my favourite remixes, tracks and albums, these guys definitely are on my bucket list. N.B I don’t actually have a bucket list because I see them like new year resolutions, I’d rather just kill the boundaries and push on.

One Big Call.
BE BRAVE, I love you all to bits and I really hope whatever you do, you remember no criticism has value unless it helps you hone your skills. Share your work and remember success is in your satisfaction, not in public acclaim. If you want me to hear your work, Mail me at Queries@WrenRock.Org.
Peace Out!
