20.10.2008   Frankfurt has just seen the foundation of the "Verein zur Förderung von Phonographie und experimenteller Musik e.V." (i.e. "Association for the Advancement of Phonography and Experimental Music"). If you're interested in what is all about, please visit the website.
06.07.2008   Phlapp New track: Mobile Stress Unit #XIV. Get it in the sound section.

>> sound
20.01.2007   Byte my shiny frosty ass! Another chance to see LDX#40 live - on the 5th of February at Frankfurt's Zucker concert series. See their web page for further information.
13.12.2006   Minimal update - one new item in the symbol section.
12.10.2006   The pages have undergone a technical overhaul, the only visible difference is that the language is now selected automatically. And something is hidden in these pages now...
The old radio stuff is now available in the sound section.
23.08.2006   (f)art sphere The C= section is back online... a collection of C64 stuff that has nothing (or not exclusively) to do with music.
02.07.2006   There's a new track online, despite sunshine and good weather. It was produced for the online compilation An Acoustic Tribute to Bear Bruno by the Gruenrekorder label. Since the tracks were limited to a length of three minutes, the full version of 'Brüno' is available in the sound section. It's a double C64 affair, hence no .sid file.
27.06.2006   Chop it! The C= section will be basically closed until further notice. It was rather pointless, since there's tons of good C64 games pages out there (recommended: Gamebase 64).
However, this section will return at some unspecified time in the future - there's already a concept for it. While the 'C=' label will still be fitting, the contents will be changed totally. Please stay tuned.
08.06.2006   Thanks to the nice people over at the Lemon 64 forum (especially waz), the latest LDX#40 song is now also available as .sid file.
01.06.2006   Again, it's LDX#40 vs. kybernaughty! 'Wurstfabrik Abstrakt' - an interpretation of the original track. Schnell, go sound!
27.05.2006   The first collaboration between LDX#40 and kybernaughty is online. Get this track with the programmatic title 'Wurstfabrik' in the sound section.
16.05.2006   Chwein! A new song is online - and it is the fastest so far. For a change, it has been created on a single C64. Unfortunately it is only available as .mp3 yet (recorded from the original hardware, no emulation), since there are still some problems with the conversion to the .sid format. Download it from the sound section.
24.04.2006   International Kunstscheisse + Concert mission successfully accomplished... many thanks to all the people who showed up. Extra big thanks go out to Guido, Tobias and Lasse of FFFEUNM, who made this event possible in the first place. And super mega extra thanks to Jessie, who had to put up with all the terror before the concert ;)
The first pictures are already online.
16.04.2006   In addition to the concert on the 20th of April, kybernaughty and LDX#40 will appear on Frankfurt's Radio X on the same day between 5 and 6 p.m.
02.03.2006   Bring the crack out! Incoming: kybernaughty and LDX#40 are playing live at the Frankfurter Forum für experimentelle und neue Musik at Tanzhaus West on the 20th of April. Besides music, there will be some visual and interactive elements.
Here's the flyer.
Plentiful attendance is requested.
28.01.2006   The first update of the year 2006 delights the world with new stuff in the symbol section.
19.12.2005   Be elitist! A little gadget has been added to the site - JukeLDX. It's a player that runs in a seperate browser window and can be used to play some of the LDX#40 songs. Just old ones, though, because the player doesn't do a very good rendition of the newer songs.
TheSIDplug browser plugin is required to use the player - get it [deleted].
[no longer works]
12.12.2005   Another new section - it's called symbol und contains something like merchandise.
04.11.2005   Locked on war! Now online: the cover for the virtual CD (i.e. the one to burn yourself) 'Missing Link'. It's located in the sound section.
08.10.2005   Simplified and 'de-cluttered' layout, a few editorial revisions and a couple of fixed links. That's all, folks.
29.09.2005   Don't bother me with the tales of your bard! A new song - very retro, since it's been produced on original hardware - to be more precise, on two C64s. Includes all those funny background noises from the machines (more about that probably soon).
Download (as usual) in the sound section.
22.09.2005   All LDX#40 tracks from the years 1998 to 2003 are now part of the High Voltage SID Collection, which is the most comprehensive collection of C64 music on the Internet.
13.06.2005   Go play Archon! Summer break is over! To start off autumn, there's a couple of new pictures in the [deleted] section.
16.06.2005   Cosmic Causeway Two old LDX#40 videos are back online - check them out in the video section. Big thanks are going out to Mark @ Needlesharing for hosting them files.
13.06.2005   On June 15th, there will be the "Monophonic Sound Contest" at the Forum für Experimentalelektronik, where the audience will be confronted with all kinds of sounds from old monophonic synthesizers. LDX#40 will probably join the contest with a SX-64 and the Kawasaki Synthesizer, trying to squeeze some fitting sounds out of the SX.
30.05.2005   Tetris After more than one year of abstinence, there's finally a new song... and a new phase of evolution - it was done with two C64s, manipulated live. Of course it's available in the sound section.
In addition, all mp3s have been freshly encoded, without a significant lack in quality, but they are now about half the size as before.
N-Joy.
24.05.2005   Eyesoteric Finally - more space on kunstscheisse.net! To celebrate this, all mp3s are from now on available in the sound section. Coming up next: a full version of one of the old videos for download.
21.05.2005   Antir(i)ad LDX#40 at Frankfurt's Radio X, with an interview and a couple of songs (self-made & by others). A recording can be downloaded (mp3, approx. 38 Min., 6,8 MB).
Since mp3.de is no good for storing the songs anymore (due to new usage conditions), only the songs in the sound section are available as mp3s until further notice. The .sid files are still available. The search for new storage space has already started.
The links section has undergone a (long needed) makeover.
There are a lot of photos of the event from the 18.05. where LDX#40 DJed and showed his video before the divine Inox Kapell and Fear Falls Burning [invalid link]. Many thanks go out to Ray and his website Gothsick. More pictures to follow...
22.04.2005   Since the DJ event on the 20th of April didn't take place (due to unforeseen technical problems with the video projection), it has been moved to a new date: 18th of May, same location. All information in the news item below (09.02.) is still valid.
09.02.2005   On April 20th, a short LDX#40 DJ set under the title 'Pure 64' will take place at the 'Forum für Experimentalelektronik' in Frankfurt. It will consist of C64 tunes by LDX#40 and other people, backed by minimalistic C64 graphics... [invalid link]
04.01.2005   Remember Wasteland? Just in time for the new year - it's another update! This time it takes the form of a new section, dedicated to preserving works and activities from the pre-LDX#40 era: archive
29.07.2004   Cauldron Three of the more recent songs are available directly as MP3s in the sound section now.
23.07.2004   Back from the grave... after a long creative break. kunstscheisse.net has switched to a new provider, therefore at least the trailer of the current "work in progress" can be downloaded from the video section.
Coming to terms with the past: the live recording of an appearance togther with other kunstscheissers at Nuremberg's Radio Z (well over one year old) can be downloaded as mp3 - in two parts: Part 1 - Part 2
17.05.2003   A new song: Anal Log. In the sound section and at [invalid link].
Three songs are now also available on Opsound. Opsound is (in their own words) '[...] a record label using an open source, copyleft model, an experiment in practical gift economics, a laboratory for new ways of releasing music.'
05.05.2003   Mayhem! kunstscheisse.net's administrator has finally returned, so here's the long promised update for the video section.
15.02.2003   Paradroid Another new song... the updates start to be a little bit on the boring side. It is called Green Badge Men Only and - surprise - can be downloaded from the sound section and from [invalid link].
An update is planned for the video section. The videos/ video samples are already encoded, but it has to be checked whether there is enough space left on the server. kunstscheisse.net's move to a decent server has unfortunately not taken place yet.
24.01.2003   Another update... a new song with the programmatic title 'Shop now - Riot later' is available in the sound section. Of course also at [invalid link]. Plus a couple of new links.
19.01.2003   The first update in 2003... a little trip by foot through Frankfurt yielded interesting visual material. 7 new pictures under the theme 'dbdecay' are now available in the [deleted] section.
28.11.2002   All LDX#40 songs are now available als MP3s. Since kunstscheisse.net is still on a temporary server, the songs have to be downloaded from mp3.de: [invalid link] All songs can be downloaded directly, for free - no registration required.
07.11.2002   New song available - 'Die Faust von Sodom' (sound). And another [deleted].
19.10.2002   After a seeminlgy endless break, a new music product is finally available! Check it out in the sound section. There is also new material in the [deleted] section.
14.09.2002   Finally, an update. It's a new section called [deleted].
28.07.2002   LDX#40 is now officially represented on kunstscheisse.net.
21.07.2002   R.I.P. The predecessor of LDX#40, Sound Interface Device (or short: S.I.D.), is dead as of today. You can still visit the memorial at http://members.tripod.com/sidevice/. There's not much of a change, actually. But the old name appeared in too many other contexts and with different meanings...
