First contact: The man who’ll welcome aliens

‘We don’t want anybody just turning a radio ­telescope on the sky and sending their own ­messages to the source.’

by Jon Ronson

If we are ever contacted by aliens, the man I’m having lunch with will be one of the first humans to know. His name is Paul Davies and he’s chair of the Seti (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Post-Detection Task Group. They’re a group of the world’s most eminent scientists and will be, come the big day, the planet’s alien welcome committee. His is an awesome responsibility, and one he doesn’t take lightly.

Ruaridh Law by birth, T.V.O is one of the country’s most meticulous DJs, and as a former member of cult electronica group Marcia Blaine School for Girls, he’s also a superb producer in his own right: most recently showcased by his ability to both release driving techno singles for labels like Stuff Records, and to indulge his experimental side on ambient/found sound albums for Highpoint Lowlife – this year’s I Can Hear The Sirens Again a particular highlight.

The Thunder Generator

All kinds of of devices have been dubbed “sonic blasters” — from the Long Range Acoustic Device super loudhailer to the piercing Banshee to the Inferno (“most unbearable, gut-wrenching noise I’ve ever heard in my life” according to Wired.com’s own Sharon Weinberger).

But a new device, developed in Israel, merits the “sonic blaster” label more than most: the Thunder Generator really is a blaster, producing a series of ear-splitting explosions. Some are so loud they could be deadly.

Dorian Concept – I’m Your Fun


Dorian Concept creates music. Dorian Concept is a modest megalomaniac.

It´s megalomania meets modesty, creating down toned megalomania. It’s the irritation which causes clarity that evokes further irritation. Here comes the deepness of confuse funk chords, accompanied by a thundering bass cloud. Is it really modesty we are witnessing?
