shsk’h for avant garde music + other cool music players

music player for new music

While poking around designer NoahWall’s websites, we stumbled on SHSK’H, an only-online music label specializing in contemporary avant garde music. You can stream albums through the site or download free MP3′s, as well as participate in developing music projects. The site features a very cool, beautiful rotary music player that is worth checking out. The only problem we find is that it takes quite a bit of bandwidth; if you have difficulty streaming it, you can download the album for free (we’re trying now). Let us know if you’re having trouble streaming or downloading. We’re wondering if this is just our computer, or a case of cool design with compromised functionality, in which case we’ll let Wall know.

We’ve found Garth Knox’s viola solo Double Digital Duo really good to work to.

If it doesn’t work, here are some other swell digital music and visuals for weekend lounging around:

pates’ tapes
make music all weekend long!!!
music to work by: bach’s goldberg variations (free)
let’s get lost: yale’s vast fabulous archive available online
refresh with zef: dazzling, relaxing color doodling site
‘Solo, Piano — N.Y.C.’ a gem of improvised moments
