SoundClouder of the Day | Todd Tuttle | Bos voor de Bomen, Hout voor de Stoof
Today’s SoundClouder of the Day is Todd Tuttle of West Bend, WI. He creates unique sounds with different instruments and collaborators, like this track that features everything from an ocarina to a ukelele. Listen to the rest here.
If double bass pedals, breakdowns, screamo and a fear of Zombies is your thing, then French, easycore band 'Buddies Say : Ho' probably will be too. Their insane guitar skills, energy and screaming make it as our SoundClouder of the Day today.
“When you’re caught up in that moment of anger, despair and frustration - sometimes the thought of not being alive is much easier. I would like to find a place where everything would be ok in this world. Where it’s easy to just escape to and that’d just be your own place: full of answers to all the difficult things…”
Self-harm and suicide are not among the answers to difficult things. Always, patience and perseverance will bring proper solace. I wish you happiness.
This track is the result of a collaboration with UK ambient artist Bruised Skies; featuring a most beautiful sound created by him, Lonely Moon.

Are you a food photo fanatic? If so, you’ve got to check out @sonyayu. Sonya is a full time food photographer in San Francisco. She serves up bird’s eye photos of gorgeously cluttered restaurant tables around the country.
Order colorful food and wait for the entire meal to be served before shooting.
Stand up on your (stable) chair to capture the grub from above.
Get the light right! Always sit by the window, avoid overhead spotlights, and never, ever use a flash - it’s food porn murder.
Not all foods are equally photogenic, but that’s not the only factor in a tantalizing food photo. The dining surface, drinks and silverware can add allure and a distinct atmosphere to even the plainest, ugliest foods.
“When we decided to rebuild we said, ‘We are integrating with SoundCloud because they’re the best, and they are essentially taking over audio.’” Limited Run’s Nick Mango says. “There is no streaming on our site without SoundCloud.”—
Great piece on PandoDaily about one of our newest partners Limited Run.
The discovery of the Higgs boson was a singular event, but it was also the product of a long effort: the Atlas project, which used CERN’s Large Hadron Collider to analyze particle acceleration. The existence of the Higgs was confirmed — or, well, the existence of a particle that “looks for all the world” to be the Higgs was confirmed — when groups of researchers detected a “bump” corresponding to a particle weighing 126 GeV, making it consistent with Dr. Higgs’ mysterious particule.
The Higgs, in other words, was discovered due to a data anomaly. And now, that data set — and that anomaly — have been set to music. Or, more precisely, music has emerged from that data set and that anomaly.
That music being, precisely, an upbeat melody that resembles the habanera, a tango-like Cuban dance.
