Chhan Dina painted live on a virtual painting wall that was made with seemingly obsolete equipment and a WiiRemote for less then $50 (US)
Warren Daly from Invisible Agent and Chhan Dina presented their virtual painting wall at TEDx in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their presentation was entitled ‘The art of virtual obsolescence‘ and they displayed a working example of an interactive graffiti and painting wall constructed from recycled electronic equipment. You can read more about it here, a fully detailed document of how we built and used this technology will be available soon.
Think big and be creative
We want to encourage you to think big and breakdown the barriers restricting your creativity. It doesn’t have to be art, you can think creatively about everything you do in life.
So what’s stopping you?
We shared our experiences overcoming obstacles restricting us from creating digital art. We proved it is possible. All you need is a good idea, a little bit of research and help from your friends. Believe in yourself, you can do it.
Check out some fresh Netlabel goodness in this 14 track, 1 hour mix of bass heavy Dub, glitched out Electronica, Jazz and Hip Hop influenced breakbeat.
Excursions in to electronica
I was busy with various other projects in October. TEDx was the main focus of my attention, so I took some time off to reflect and build on my next live electronics project, hence the delay in getting this mix out in October. During this time I discovered some brilliant new Netlabels and very talented artists. Sweeping from Breakbeat, Ambient, minimal Techno and some more Jazz influenced gems.
Cut Records go from strength to strength with Bryn Thomas’s excellence ‘Feel for bumps’ EP. Once again we’re treated to the fantastic talents of Ghost Kid and his intriguing and well executed Electronica. Some conscious dub from the talented Dadub, all their tracks are phenomenal. Phillip Wilkerson winds things down with some washed out soundscapes, a kind of intermission before Ketsa has you feeling a little melancholic, during this time you should take a moment to reflect on the sheer quality of Netlabel and Creative Commons music. DML features in yet another mix of mine, I really wish I heard more from DML and of course the Grunfield netlabel, quality minimal Techno and Tech rollers. I await the next moves from all of these Netlabels.
Please remember, very talented musicians want you to enjoy their fantastic music, please share the love and check out each artist at their website below and give them the support they deserve. All the tracks are Netaudio and Creative commons. Happy listening.

The Mnk EP is his first release for Irish collective Invisible Agent.
Its a dark and trippy affair, drawing on halfstep and breakbeat rhythms throughout. Trudging along, it channels Zomby-esque psychedelia and dark electro influenced electronica from the genres heyday at the turn of the century.
Founder Leonardo Rosado and artist Gacouganol continue their innovative quests to combine exciting new sounds, stunning visuals and poetry on their Netlabel FeedbackLoop. They truly are champions of Creative Commons and the Netlabel cause.
What’s so special about FeedbackLoop Label
Consistancy and quality are certainly traits I associate with FeedbackLoop label. They release intriguing CDr, digital downloads and beautiful digital postcards. They differentiate themselves even more by conjuring up inventive ways to captivate and fascinate their listeners using a myriad of mediums.
Feedback Loop Netlabel seeks to release music from whatever genre so long as it challenges, is emotive and is of high standard. Feedback Loop releases both digital editions and limited hand-made physical editions under a creative commons license.
It’s all about the listeners pleasure
FeedbackLoop aim to create timeless pieces of art. This is instantly obvious if you check out any of their releases. While their catalog is not filling up as fast as other labels, their 19 current releases and 9 podcasts are all notable creations. Quality over quantity is their mantra. Their combinations of text, photography, artwork and soundscapes are breathtaking. Certainly a benchmark for artists and other labels to reference.
Prepare to be engaged
FeedbackLoop is one of my ‘go to’ labels when I am searching for engaging music to listen to and include in my Agentcasts. My previous podcasts have included tracks by Savaran and Leonardo Rosado. I always take time to reflect on their artwork and photography, you can see that love and attention went in to every detail.
They have a fantastic roster of artists, my best advise is to visit their site and enjoy everyone of their amazing creations. As always I wait in anticipation and excitement for their next release.
