In spite of our scientific achievements in cutting edge music technology, one things we've managed to avoid is selling MP3s.  There have been many reasons for this, not least of which is that we can't get the dang things to stay still long enough to slap a price tag on them.  But now we've managed to get a cap on 'em -- a SNOCAP, specifically -- and opened a SNOCAP store of ECC MP3s.   We're testing the waters with Ritalin Ruckus v2 as well as a collection of new and unreleased ECC tracks.

TIP:  Forget their 30 second previews, and listen to the whole song in the player at the top of our MP3 page.


To celebrate the store opening, we're turning the prices upside down:  99 cent tracks?  NO --

66 cents a track!

  Good until we get tired of silly marketing games.

Appalled that the RIAA has (so far) sued 30,000 people individually to extort thousands of dollars from each?  Which never, ever goes to the artists they're suing over?

How would you like your US tax dollars to pay for that?

If your answer is "Hell No!", you should pay attention to "The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Act of 2008" (S. 3325) which is poised to do just that.  From

Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee gave the green light to S. 3325, the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Act of 2008. We need you to show them the red light, NOW! This intellectual property enforcement bill lets the DOJ enforce civil copyright claims and lets the government do the MPAA and RIAA’s intellectual property rights enforcement work for them—at tax payers’ expense.

Now, the bill’s backers are pushing to have it pass the Senate as early as today (09/16/08) via a streamlined procedure, without the full Senate voting on the measure. Tell members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that you don’t want your tax dollars spent on DOJ’s civil enforcement of copyright, and to put a hold on the bill.


(We’re using the awesome Cause Caller for this alert, so be ready to speak to a number of different Senate offices, rapid-fire style! We’ve picked Senators who may be like-minded in opposing this bill. Of course, feel free to call your own Senators.)

We used Cause Caller to call all 11 senators for free and hassle free.  Can you?

The ECC returns from a successful venture to the northeast:

TORONTO:  The debut of our performance " Space: The Vinyl Frontier" at the Deep Wireless Festival went very well, and earned us some very positive reactions and feedback.  Mucho documentary materials were juggled live via vinyl, thanks to Ms Pinky's Interdimensional Wrecked System (quite appopriate for the intergalactic Voyager Golden Record).  We hope to acquire a recording of the show from Deep Wireless in the future, but until then you can enjoy this blog entry from, including a nice video clip:

Culture jammer TradeMark G. (aka Mark Gunderson) did a half-hour-ish set following the Deep Wireless ensemble / PORTRAITS IN SOUND 2 performance, with Kaos pad and tone arm and laptop etc. in tow. 

Clip from SPACE: THE VINYL FRONTIER by TradeMark G. from justing on Vimeo.

There's also a good set of still photos on Flickr courtesy of Lab Rat's Sean C.

CINCINNATI:  DJ Empirical invites The ECC / DJ Pantshead as a guest DJ at Schwartz, the night he and The Librarian run at the Clique Lounge. In addition to the swell flyer/poster he made for the night, he also took some video:

Empirical also put up a set of Flickr photos from the night, including one additional video clip.
