Friends, we are pleased to announce that the 2018 Golden Festival recordings collected by WFMU have been added to the archive! Nearly 45 recordings were collected at the event, and they are now available for free streaming and download to our users.
If you've never heard of the Golden Festival, you're not alone - but you're missing out! It's a fabulous, three-day-long affair in Brooklyn's Grand Prospect Hall, a celebration of Balkan traditional music and dance. Featuring musicians from many corners of the world, instruments that have been used since antiquity, and unique vocal techniques, this is truly a special event. Fortunately, every year since the Free Music Archive began in 2009, there have been recordings from the Golden Festival added to the collection.
After a few years, the Golden Festival was granted its own Curator page, since the contributions associated with it are nearing the 1,000 mark! Listen to this teaser playlist we've curated, or dive into the whole collection and explore for yourself!

A malfunction is the state of something that functions wrongly or does not function at all; like our world...
First volume of the Reaktor Sessions, Malfunction is made with virtual sound generators and noisy circuit-bent devices.

Oh my god, I'm done!
Over 100 MASS DIST records made over 25 years are now up on the Free Music Archive! ALL OF THEM!
This took months and months, and years and years, and hours and hours every week. I'm relieved. I'm exhausted. I'm very proud.
I want to thank Jonah Rapino, Cesar Siguencia, and Cheyenne Hohman for all the help! And thanks to the Free Music Archive for being such a great home for all of our music!
To tie it up, one last batch of rando weirdo MASS DIST for you:
I got a couple ideas of things I'd like to upload to the FMA in the future, but the big pile is done. The mountain is levelled. I can rest. Move on to other ridiculous things.
I'LL BE BACK!
