My Bloody Valentine, Aphex Twin Do Bestival

So many festivals, but only one can be Bestival. The UK event was curated by BBC Radio 1's Rob da Bank and takes place on the Isle of Wight from September 5-7. So far the lineup includes the above-mentioned MBV and Aphex Twin, along with the Breeders, George Clinton, Gary Numan, the Human League, Lee Scratch Perry, the Wedding Present, 808 State ... wow, this is getting very nostalgic, Rob da Bank. As far as the youngsters, BTW Fuck Buttons, Foals, the Count & Sinden, These New Purtians, and St. Vincent, among others, will be there. May not be the best lineup across the board, but it's a good one, and they definitely have the trippiest website. - Source

Aphex Twin Finds Another Place to Stick His Face

I saw this Wired link over at Slashdot about how Aphex Twin encoded his face into one of his tracks. You can view the images through spectrograph software. As the Wired article explains, there's a software package called MetaSynth where you can scan in an image and create music from it.
