TR-808 Drum Machine Flashback – Roland U.S. Blog

Author: Oz Owen and Roland UK Features Team Let’s kick this off with a little bit of trivia: the TR- 808 has been used on more hit records than any other drum machine. Read that again. This simple fact is made all the more improbable when you look back at the inauspicious launch of the TR-808.

7 Billion by Cyriak

cyriak 7 billion
 
Cyriak makes art that reminds me of the surrealism of Dali. If you’ve ever made media, you’ll appreciate the HOW???!! virtuosity.
 

Here’s a documentary that with complete justification calls him a hero of animation.

He is one of the After Effects users the team is particularly proud of.

Alan Turing June 23, 1912

Cool equations from On Computable Numbers With An Application To The Entscheidungs Problem, 1936. Wherein he described the mathematics of computing machines. What he does with Godel’s Theorem is remarkable. Historic paper– it founds computer science.

Cow spots from The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis wherein he lays out the math that describes the evolution of pattern in nature. Like cow spots. And galaxies. His last paper. Math the predicts nature is mystical.

The rainbow because he was gay. Which got him chemically castrated, imprisoned and assassinated. Excuse me he committed suicide. (He was assassinated.)
