tour pledge

Crime are finishing the recordings for their new album and will now start preparing their live show for the fall of 2012 and 2013. This show will be a unique experience and a complete rendering of the band’s creative vision.

To bring you this show in its full sensory splendor, they need to raise funds so that this new and possibly one-time-only way of experiencing Crime and the City Solution is possible. They have put together a pledge project offering an impressive array of gift and unique Crime memorabilia, artworks and more. As an extra special offer the first 50 pledgers will be named in the credits of the 35mm surrealist film titled ‘Sadness’ (directed by Simon Bonney and featuring music by the Detroit Crime) which they are offering as a download.

Alexander Hacke's New York City

Alexander Hacke's New York CityAlexander Hacke has released a sound-set for Urs Heckmanns virtual synthesizer - software Zebra which is called "New York City" and consists of 150 sounds dedicated to the big apple and divided in the five boroughs.

The sounds range from weird one shot effects to slow evolving cinematic soundscapes and complete multi layered backing tracks.

The sound set is a 100% copyright free collection of individually programmed artistic patches which can used for film-scores, industrial music, electro dance beats and general experimentation.

They provide an ideal starting point to dive into the complex world of Zebra.

Caution, you must own the software synthesizer in order to work with the sound set.
