Band Releases Album As Linux Kernel Module

netbuzz (955038) writes "A band called netcat is generating buzz in software circles by releasing its debut album as a Linux kernel module (among other more typical formats.) 'Are you ever listening to an album, and thinking "man, this sounds good, but I wish it crossed from user-space to kernel-space more often!" We got you covered,' the band says on its Facebook page. 'Our album is now fully playable as a loadable Linux kernel module.'"

This! I had to reload my psmouse module half way through the album. Apparently this is not so uncommon on Dell laptops. I read the source code, and it was trivial. But the very large byte array size makes this something that's generally inadvisable, precisely because you could jump somewhere into it where the audio happens to be specific byte code. I also discovered it from tweets coming out of thegrugq, etc.

Re:Lol wut (1)

fearlezz (594718) | about 7 months ago | (#46830623)

And there is a few lines of code to convert the byte array to a mp3 file:
#!/usr/bin/python
import binascii,re,sys
try:
                s = re.sub('0x','',re.sub('[,\n]','',open(sys.argv[1], 'r').read()))
                open(sys.argv[1]+'.mp3','w').write(binascii.unhexlify(s))
except:
                print "Usage: "+sys.argv[0]+" trkNdata.h"

dejanc (1528235) | about 7 months ago | (#46831121)

De gustibus non est disputandum. I just heard about this band for the first time and I would categorize them as an "alternative electronic" band. I was first introduced to that kind of music during the mid nineties, just before the Internet came to my country, as it was swapped by artists on a BBS I frequented. I think it appealed to artistic geeks because they could create it with a heavy use of their favorite toy in their bedroom.

We even have a show dedicated to this kind of music on a national radio station, so it has its audience...

Re:Lol wut (2)

gl4ss (559668) | about 7 months ago | (#46831289)

if alternative electronic is something that was swapped on bbs's then my favorite alternative electronic artists are 4mat and lizard king(ok purple motion made one good track).

we too had a show for _this_ kind of music on radio and it was called "space junk" because well, most of the music on it was just ambient noise. much like this bands titular song. so I would categorize this band just as electronic noise band, it really doesn't make it that much better if the noise is generated with light activated harmonicas or whatever. it's still just boring ambient noise.

point being, nobody would have heard of this without this gimmick, so bravo for them for the gimmick. but let me ask you this, will you seek this song a year from now?

Re:I kinda like it (1)

inasity_rules (1110095) | about 7 months ago | (#46831033)

If there is one format I always hated it was cassette. Vinyl wasn't too bad, but the hiss was annoying (never got around to building myself a filter, which may have broken the fidelity of the sound anyway. I never did the math either...), and I haven't played one in years. Cassettes were just pure evil, even on high quality players, stretching, distorting. getting chewed up and snapping, then you have to splice it. No thanks.

Re:I kinda like it (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 7 months ago | (#46831103)

Well... most consumer tape players and tapes were shit. Even the pre-recorded tapes for sale in record stores were shit. The blacker the tape color, the better. The pre-recorded ones were always brown. Nearly all home tape recorders had automatic level recording that never even came close to reaching 0db and had no noise reduction method. Some stand-alone decks had Dolby B noise reduction, but that was also a joke, making recordings muffled. In the mid-90s I went to Radio Shack and picked up an Optimus SCT-88 (identical to the AIWA AD-R40 [audiokarma.org] ) for 200 bucks. Using chrome or metal tapes with Dolby C noise reduction (must be enabled during recording and playback) and using proper recording levels, it was easy to make tapes that sounded great with very faint hiss and nearly as good as a CD, usually transparent with loud rock music. Still, I'd say my biggest complaint was the lack of a servo control for speed, meaning that a tape recorded on one deck might play faster or slower on another.

Showmanship over musicianship (3, Insightful)

gman003 (1693318) | about 7 months ago | (#46830117)

"As netcat, Brandon Lucia (drums, Chango, computers), David Balatero (cello, computers), and Andrew Olmstead (synthesizer, computers) explore the intersection between technology, complexity, and free improvisation. netcat's music brings together seasoned performance on conventional instruments -- cello, synthesizers, and drums -- combining it with computer generated sounds and computer instruments, like the Chango, a novel synthesizer that is played with light.

        The mixture of these ingredients is textural, long-form structured improvisations. netcat's music is the kind that calls for laying down on the floor with expensive headphones on and enjoying the solipsism. The flow of the round, sinusoidal bass of the Chango and synthesizer carry the listener on an electric current, through a confluence of sweeping, dramatic arcs on the cello and tympanic drumming. Among it all manifests speaking computers attempting, with futility, to master spoken language and a sonic embodiment of the flurry of bits and bytes traversing a computer network."

Translation: "We bought a bunch of really expensive, weird-ass MIDI controllers, and brought out a random string instrument from [middle|high] school so we could get the "explore the intersection of ___ and ___" music groupies ("explore the intersection" is music's "synergy" or "cloud" - meaningless catchphrase). We did so by playing a couple simple intervals really, really slowly, because we never figured out how to play above 30bpm with any of the aforementioned expensive, weird-ass MIDI controllers. We named everything after random linux terms and published as a kernel module in order to get some free publicity, which Slashdot dutifully provided."

I half suspect that if I actually nabbed a copy of their synth programs, I'd find that they just used default voices for it. Sadly I use less obscure programs and fewer weird-ass MIDI controllers, so I cannot tell for sure. Also I never want to waste another minute listening to that droning to compare.

You want some real "explore the intersection between technology and music"? Go listen to Machinae Supremacy - they combine modern hard-rock/heavy-metal with Commodore 64 chiptune, and it actually sounds good (regular personal taste disclaimers apply). Or any of the other dozens of chiptune crossover musicians - I can recommend "The Black Box" by aivi & surasshu for people who want more tranquil music that's still, y'know, music. And chiptune actually requires a good bit of technical knowledge to write, rather than simply using a computer as just a funny-sounding synthesizer.

In all seriousness: Any FLOSS publicity is good publicity. Windows or Mac folks can run Linux in a VM to try out the audio; It's not my cup of tea, but sort of neat.

Since "Heartbleed" was found out, the NSA is looking deperately for new ways to get into your computer.

Wow, I'm impressed. Do we now have to drop the old:

    insmod

and now use

    insrocker

Does this mean my Kernel will be tainted? With Rock and Roll?
