....5D Webzine

Hello all (I like assuming people read this).

Finally we've come up with a way to unify all of the post-cassette tape planning into one hyper-media! The 5D webzine is a new invention never before produced or seen. Like a magazine it features recurring features every month or quarter- including simple text and images. Unlike a magazine, content exists within a tesseract of eight independent feature cubes that a reader can browse between.

When you're watching a TV do you always wish your remote could flip between the A story and the B story, instead of just changing channels? That's the essential idea behind a 5D magazine. We offer an A through G story with divisions at the ends of normal attention spans. But unlike TV we offer lots of media: games, puppet shows, comix, and the music map project.

Here are some shows we are writing:
-Tapeater's Landfill Follies
Puppets made of garbage live in a landfill and have madcap adventures
Following the exploits of the Radical Rhombus- this ode to Flatland is also a parody of JRPGS
-Music Map
Releasing landscape albums as part of a magazine is cool
-Lita and Rochelle are Small Business Women
A comic that follows a duo of do-nothings in economic escapades

Plus expect Sun Machine, Zoo Puma + Vampiger, and other original content from musicians and filmmakers!

The new myspace song is about pyramids. We have over a half hour of free online content now that is great. You don't have to think about it or anything. I know the way I describe it makes it sound so cerebral, but it's just easy listening. You can do things while you listen to it- you don't need a CD, and if you like one play-through then you would like a $3 tape (cheaper than ANY other form of legal media) of 60 minutes of unstopped music.

Also, our tapes are are all one-of-a-kind objects of art. No two are a like and they are all handmade from recycled materials. WHY pay more for plastic stamped by Chinese children who wished they were Mexican children?

...Music Maps 2

After the debut 10 releases, we'll put the cassette to rest in order to dive deep into the primordial ooze of new media. The musical map program has taken on some new dimension. Songs expressing a landscape will serve as points on a route, they manifest as expressionist loops, and an external variable (possibly your browser navigation) causes you to progress through the territory.

Different albums are different countries in our super continent. Each nation's traditions is diffused into our fantasy world on the internet- replacing the real world with metaphorical "like" parts. As we continue the adventure of songwriting in the Sabertooth Tiger studios, we can leave a cartographic record of the realms we visit.

The philosophy behind our song writing method is expressed on the debut tapes. Red is Roseville tells us that the album is really a place, and music will always be something that should be accepted as scenery. An artist is only a phase, an interchangeable avatar who ebbs on the flow of a popular current. And music? A machine:  Chomsky-esque linguistic programming of preliterate man, vestigial circuits of expression leftover from an animal-pastoral lifestyle.

Some examples of mytheme setting music that we've written in the last week include a windmill and a highway.
