Grimes has posted a "How to Make Music for (Almost) Free" tutorial.
first off, the best program (in my opinion) is ableton live. however, garageband is perfectly acceptable and i made visions on garageband. its kind of the same thing but simpler.

It's been a few weeks but we're back with another countdown list. Since it's the first Monday of March, I thought I would list my five most anticipated records that are releasing this month. As we inch closer to spring and warmer weather (well, warmer weather for those who don't live in Los Angeles), I can see a lot of people looking forward to more upbeat jams - something you can blast with the windows down. So avoid the winter blues by checking out this list to dream about warmer days ahead. Join in the discussion in the replies with the albums you're most anticipating in the month of March.

Patrick Stump posted an interesting blog about how we, as a society, define ourselves by hate.
How many people reading this are fans of Nickelback? How about Dane Cook? Now, I can safely assume that, unless this blog gets reposted on a site dedicated to those respective artists, those questions would be met with tumbleweeds and the distant sound of crickets. Like Creed or Limp Bizkit or the “Dude! You’re getting a Dell!” kid, they’ve become ubiquitously hate-able. I would not be exaggerating to state I’ve simply never heard someone admit to liking them.

Why is that? Now, I’m not saying I like them. Like you (fellow pop culture spectator) I am honor-bound by the unspoken law ...

Thom Yorke (Radiohead) recently sat down with The Guardian.
Having thought they were subverting the corporate music industry with In Rainbows, he now fears they were inadvertently playing into the hands of Apple and Google and the rest. "They have to keep commodifying things to keep the share price up, but in doing so they have made all content, including music and newspapers, worthless, in order to make their billions. And this is what we want? I still think it will be undermined in some way. It doesn’t make sense to me. Anyway, All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace. The commodification of human relationships through social networks. Amazing!"
