Icarus’ Fake Fish Distribution (FFD)

icarus.jpgIcarus’ album, Fake Fish Distribution (FFD), uses generative and parametric software techniques to create 1000 unique records. FFD comes in the form of a vast array of structured variations on the album’s musical content, feeding unique versions to each unique listener.

The album is available as a limited edition, via the normal medium of music distribution — the media file download — with each of the 1000 versions only being sold once and in sequential order. Upon purchase, you become the owner of that unique version.

FFD is encoded as 320 kbps mp3 files, contains no digital rights management software. and will play in any digital music player able to handle mp3 playback.

Music Machines on Kickstarter

machines2.jpg“Machines” is an intersection of sculpture, music, and performance. Large metal machines powered by motors, solenoids, pneumatics, and hydraulics, built from the waste of post industrialism. Booming percussives, low frequency vibrations, and howling pipes – all operated to create sounds by musicians poised at control panels.

Kris Perry will start each sculpture from an industrial machine that has been taken out of use. I will travel to scrap yards, auctions, and industrial suppliers to seek out machines that have a combination of visual appeal and functionality. Grinders, shakers, lathes, presses, mills, compressors, saws, and specialized machinery will be the starting point for my works

You can help support his project here.

The New Sound of Music

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MsyOe7xCqg[/youtube]
The New Sound of Music is a fascinating BBC historical documentary from the year 1979. It charts the development of recorded music from the first barrel organs, pianolas, the phonograph, the magnetic tape recorder and onto the concepts of musique concrete and electronic music development with voltage-controlled oscillators making up the analogue synthesizers of the day. EMS Synthesizers and equipment are a heavily featured technology resource in this film, with the show’s host, Michael Rodd, demonstrating the EMS VCS3 synthesizer and it’s waveform output.

Perspectives on Generative and Systems Music #5.1: Duration

rwm.jpgComposing with Process: Perspectives on Generative and Systems Music #5.1: Duration (97′ 56”) by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore. Narrated by Connie Treanor.

The fifth episode in the series continues to explore the idea of time in music practice, particularly in relation to duration. The show looks at how music is measured in terms of both micro and macroscopic intervals: through granular synthesis, where sound is constructed from microscopic sonic ‘grains’, to extended works whose duration is measured not in minutes and seconds, but years. Bringing together ideas and theories of the engineer Denis Gabor and composers Iannis Xenakis and Curtis Roads, this episode examines early tape and computer music works using granular and pulsar synthesis. The show closes with a focus on two recent treatments of time in music by the German artist Hanne Darboven and media producer Terre Thaemlitz.
