Making The Noise with Monome 40h
New England-born Adam Ribaudo recently departed the Northeast for warmer territory, but will soon be relocating to Delaware. All the better, too, as this project manager for a software/consulting company by day spends his evenings programming the Monome 40h, which I've had the opportunity to play around with when he was still working on the coding through Jeskola Buzz. Being neither a DJ nor a programmer, it was a bit difficult for me to adjust, but I eventually go the hang of it and didn't want to stop.

Looking forward to what more Making The Noise - a devoted IDM fan with a wide variety of secular music tastes - has to come, the MP3 is available for download exclusively here on Basstown. Remix away!
