This weekend saw the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day. We also just celebrated the sixth birthday for our app (http://sfl.to/ios & http://sfl.to/android)

One of the festival team, and our app developer; Ket, went on a hunt for some SF goodness on vinyl.

  • Quatermass and the Pit [OST] 
  • Quatermass & the Pit [Music Cues]
  • Vangelis - Blade Runner [OST]
  • BBC’s Doctor Who & The Pescatons + Sound Effects Disc

Brian Eno & Peter Chilvers  recently released a Deluxe “Generative” version of Eno’s latest album, “Reflection” as an iOS and AppleTV app.

“But the app by which REFLECTION is produced is not restricted: it creates an endless and endlessly changing version of the piece of music.”
