Make Noise Records Presents: Shared System Series

Make Noise Records is proud to announce the Shared System Series! It is available for purchase and TRASH_AUDIO is the only place you can purchase it from online for the time being. Please visit the Make Noise Records webpage for more information and artist statements.

The Shared System Series compiles the separate recordings of several artists utilizing the same electronic musical instrument, the Shared System. At times it feels as though electronic music has become an overly automated form driven by simplified genre specific apps and software. What happens when the signal path is not pre-defined or optimized for a popular result? The Shared System is a modular synthesizer developed by Make Noise. It has no pre-determined signal path, and is not designed for any particular musical destination. In limiting the artists to this one instrument, we hope the Shared System Series of records will purely illustrate the intentions of the artists.

Mastered for vinyl by Audible Oddities, etched into high quality master lacquers made by SAE Mastering, and shipped to URP for pressing. The result is a high fidelity 7″ record. Like the Shared System instrument, the sleeves for these records are a combination of digital and analog technology. They are designed using computer software and printed using a hand-cranked letterpress called the Vandercook 4.

    Are there plans to offer a subscription to the entire series, or do we need to buy them one by one?

    • admin December 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

      There are no plans for a subscription for this series. We’re taking it one at a time.

    I just purchased the vinyl – looks awesome – great work :D

    Was wondering when the download links for the alternative takes will be emailed?

    The choice of format mean d I could buy it, but not play it. Kind of forces my hand to say ‘no’.

      They email the mp3 as well!

      Buy a record player. Then buy records.

    Damn now you convinced me to buy vinyl player. Any recommendations about which model is the best not-too-expensive option?

    After long consideration, I decided to order this. Although I don’t find vinyl records particularly practical, I’m really rather curious to hear Alessandro’s compositions on this synthesizer.
    Looking forward to checking it out.

    I got this site from my buddy who shared with me regarding this site and now this time I am visiting this site
    and reading very informative posts at this place.

    Well, I managed to run across this one before it sold out (missed the Cortini, sadly. I was off gigging or summink). Any chance there’s a pre-release mailing list of some sort that I could be place on if I were to say “pretty please?”

  9. Drakhe July 3, 2014 at 8:41 pm #

    I realy can’t fathom why you would want to limit this so strictly… Only vinyl and then only 500????? Isn’t music for everybody to enjoy?

    Also, your giving digital downloads to those that bought the vinyl records, including extra tracks … why isn’t this more widely available? Realy baffles me and makes me very sad I wont be able to buy this music ….. (oh and btw, I mean all records, especialy Richard’s and Alesandro’s even if I manange to buy the new releases (which I wont because I’m not gonna buy a record player just to be able to listen to a handfull of Shared System Series records, or buy the records and hope I can find somebody that has a record player))

    Very Unhappy!! :-(

    Another reason that circumstances are good is that it is a whole lot simpler to
    locate your case than it’s to discover a tiny pair of frames.
    Couple of years previously, there have been limited variants of males cups in terms of fashion,
    layout and power.
