Merankorii @ Magna Casta

It isn't the first time Merankorii has a "commissioned work" of some sort, but it was the first time that Merankorii was *really* commissioned to do some work :-) Some months ago, the great folks from Magna Casta a great Portuguese website about wine, talked with me to commission a song made by Merankorii to be used by them on some future videos. We talked about it and agreed to talk more on the issue, but in the meantime a 20th came, and what better inspiration for it than doing a track called "Magna"? Long story short (as 20th's have to be - short), the track was made and accepted, and Magna Casta already used the track for the first time.

The video follows, don't be afraid to spread the word :-)

TVK netlabel invited Merankorii and Nata "to rework tracks from each others back catalog in any way they saw fit resulting in the split release (in more ways than one) that is MERANATA. This is what happened in the aftermath of that experiment. Two very different approaches, but with much common ground.":

  • Standard Edition (CD) - 9 Euro

Merankorii quits SellABand

Because it wasn't fair for you, Merankorii fans and believers, Merankorii just quited SellABand.

A quick explanation: SellABand changed its Terms of Services. Each believer will have to cancel their account or accept them. If you (Merankorii SAB believers) agree with them, well, fine, but I don't want to incentive Merankorii fans to agree with a TOS that I don't agree myself. This is a part of what I said them about this issue:

I don't count on coming back to SAB as an artist until this [Terms of Services item number] 4.5 changes to something I feel more fair for me, as a band, to purpose to my fans, and I count to get back to being a believer *only*if* I find a band that I like so much that I'm willing to bet with my money in, taking into account that I might never see that money again

If you want to read the "complete version" of my stand on this issue, read what I wrote on my personal blog about it, and follow the links.

Thanks for understanding.

New release: Cryptoloop

Bash and python got together in a loop, messed up with some devices and crypt functions. The result was compressed and spat into a floppy. The riddle is that the source code, while not available, is shown by the 9 minutes long music track itself. You just have to learn how to reverse engineer it… Or, at least, enjoy the resulting tune. The geekiest release ever from Merankorii is out now: grab this Cryptoloop! Packed inside handmade cardboard covers. Limited to 10 copies.

Released  at the 1st of February 2010, in three editions:

Floppy Disk - 6 Euro
Floppy Disk + Colored CD (with extra track) - 10 Euro
Package (10 different items includding the floppy and the CD) - 40 Euro
(All prices include shipping)

About the floppy edition: This is a *real* floppy disk. You'll need a 3 1/2 floppy disk drive or you won't be able to listen to this single. Yup, this sets the record as Merankorii's geekiest release ever ;-)

About the CD edition:
Besides the floppy, a CDr, with four different colors available. Purchasers of more than one of this packages get different colors. The CD includes the Cryptoloop track and a bonus track.

About the Package edition:
Each Package is different, and comes with 10 different items (expect most of them to be CDs), two of them being the Cryptoloop Floppy Disk and the Cryptoloop CD. Don't be afraid: no package will come with more than one Cryptoloop CD, unless you ask during the order. The market value of the items in the package is guaranteed to be more than the price of the package.

Orders can be done via e-mail, for now.

Free Compilation: Necktar 2017 volume 2

What is Necktar 2017 ?

The set of themes of volume 2 is
Random / Perception / Cycles : Reproduction.

A mere journey through time,
the great work of anachronistic alchemists,
the apiary of a network of precognitifs...

Difficult to define Necktar 2017,
till the first cycle is not achieved.

Currently it is a compilation
of hors norme (not normal) music for free sharing,
articulated in several thematic episodes.

For know what it will be ultimately,
unless we can travel through time,
it won't be until 2017.

Necktar 2017, Volume 2 (cover)
Necktar 2017 volume 2, a futuristic/electronic compilation with 92 tracks and more than 8 hours of music, including Merankorii's "Intimae". Listen or download it (for free, of course!) here.
