Resplendent/Downey: Respondent EP

The Respondent EP by the Chicago and Stockholm based Resplendent/Downey is certainly one oldy-but-goody release, in internet years anyway, and certainly one of my all-time personal favorites. Released in the summer of 2007, coagulates a massive amount of feeling and idealism, that is beautifully transmitted in a mix of electronic music and good, heartfelt vocals.

Andy Wagner: Those Who Forgive

Andy Wagner's third album, “Those Who Forgive” is a melodic rock six-song EP from Rock Proper, a net label devoted to distributing quality rock albums covered under the Creative Commons license. "Those Who Forgive" is indeed a "quality rock album" - it's a bit on the slower, more melodic side with a touch of blues and maybe even country.

Free Deep Elm Records: EMO IS AWESOME / EMO IS EVIL

Our EMO IS AWESOME / EMO IS EVIL 2 sampler is packed with 15 songs (56 minutes) from all of our new releases PLUS some Deep Elm classics as well. This is version 2 of our Hottest Selling Sampler Ever and it again delivers the intense combination of emotional songwriting, heartfelt lyrics and moving live performance often referred to as "emo." Whether you think emo is awesome or evil, you can't deny it's all bloody good.

Facade

Façade is an artificial intelligence-based art/research experiment in electronic narrative – an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. Integrating an interdisciplinary set of artistic practices and artificial intelligence technologies, we have completed a five year collaboration to engineer a novel architecture for supporting emotional, interactive character behavior and drama-managed plot. Within this architecture we have built a dramatically interesting, real-time 3D virtual world inhabited by computer-controlled characters, in which the player experiences a story from a first-person perspective. Façade was publicly released as a freeware download in July 2005.
