BT is a Danish tabloid newspaper which offers general news about various subjects such as sports, politics and current affairs. Until 2012 it was known as B.T.
BT (short for "Best Tracks") is the third compilation album by Buck-Tick, released on March 20, 1999. It compiles every single and B-side they released while signed to Victor Entertainment, except the live B-sides of "Die". It also includes a demo version of "Romanesque". It reached number sixteen on the Oricon chart. The album was remastered and re-released on September 5, 2007.
Brian Wayne Transeau (born October 4, 1970), better known by his stage name BT, is an American music producer, composer, technologist, audio technician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter. An artist in the electronica music genre, he is credited as a pioneer of the trance and intelligent dance music styles that paved the way for EDM, and for "stretching electronic music to its technical breaking point." He also creates music within many other styles, such as classical, film composition and bass music.
BT is also known for pioneering the stutter edit. This production technique consists of taking a small fragment of sound and repeating it rhythmically. BT was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for his song " Somnambulist (Simply Being Loved)", recognized as using the largest number of vocal edits in a song (6,178 edits). BT's work with stutter edit techniques led to the formation of software development company Sonik Architects, developer of the sound-processing software plug-ins Stutter Edit and BreakTweaker, and the live audio and visual remix app called Sonifi.
In 2010, BT was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album for These Hopeful Machines. He has produced, remixed, written for, and collaborated with a variety of artists, including Paul van Dyk, Peter Gabriel, Tori Amos, Depeche Mode, NSYNC, Sting, Blake Lewis, The Roots, Guru, Madonna, Britney Spears and Tiësto, and composed original scores for films such as Go, The Fast and the Furious and Monster.
