Good Read: Steal Like an Artist

Steal Like An Artist cover

I just finished the book Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. It’s a quick and inspirational read. You know, one of those books that will mostly likely confirm some ideas you already had, give you some new ideas, and help you break loose a bit if your stuck on a music project.

SoundLab - A New Step-by-Step Interactive e-book On Modular Synthesis


Modulate This reader Roland Kuit is a composer, artist, sound designer, and teacher who lives in The Hague in the Netherlands. imageHe just wrote me to let me know he’s released a new e-book on modular synthesis called SouldLab. He’ll also be in New York for  Ectro-Music 2010 on September 12-15 to perform and to lecture on topics covered in the book.  

I  don’t have a copy, but I did take a few minutes to mindmap the table of contents. The map gives you a feel for the depth of information in the book. Click the image below to see a larger view or click here to load a printable PDF version.

The book is about modular synthesis in general and Roland uses he Clavia G2 hardware editor/Demo version to illustrate concepts. The screenshot below is from the end of chapter one where he illustrates patching old subtractive modular systems like the ARP 2600.
