Yes, you heard: since I last communicated to you via our website, we have released not one but twain (“two” in contemporary youth-speak) videos on the subject of seeking inspiration for a track.
The context to these videos is that Cornwell, having fallen in love with a famous European lady disk jockey, wishes to express his affections in the medium of eurotrance. However, as a dyed-in-the-wool techno producer, he is lacking inspiration for his tune. Fortunately, several of our fans – including Elite Force, Bassrock Records and Mac “Wave Maker” Melto – have sent us their tracks for review, discussion or mastering, and Cornwell hopes to derive inspiration from this music.
We also consider local club dances, and ways of enhancing one’s experience of listening to music.
We hope you enjoy both videos. Tell everyone you know, and then devise ways to tell everyone else.
Technicians – Sherry Sessions 3 – Inspiration (part 1)
Technicians – Sherry Sessions 4 – Inspiration (part 2)
Our first, experimental Sherry Sessions videos (Cheese and Spiders) have achieved a high degree of critical acclaim following their recent release on Youtube, and have given rise to a desire for a wider audience.
So we have decided to develop a format in which we start to interact with our many friends on Myspace and Youtube, taking inspiration from them for our own techno, making techno live in the studio, and dispensing the deep wisdom garnered therefrom.
We have already received numerous contributions of music for review and discussion; if you would like to join in, please drop us a line via Myspace or Youtube.
Technician, Museum of Techno
In order to broaden the scope of our videos, Braidy and Cornwell have decided to release edited video highlights of their legendary sherry sessions in the Technical Department offices at the Museum of Techno. We hope that this more relaxed format will allow us to explore a wider variety of topics in even more philosophical and scientific depth than our famous tutorial videos.
In this, the second video in the series, the sherry kicks in in earnest and we offer some observations on mankind’s favourite eight-legged friend: the spider.

Do you have any appalling early attempts at making electronic music? Can we broadcast them?
