The Art of the K7 ~ Sudokaising [i]

[March 21, 2020 | #496]
First in a series of texts on the series of K7-sudoku plays that I have set myself as a task to produce this year in weekly editions, including thoughts on how it is they sound how they sound and reflections on the combinatorial and other properties of the sudoku and related number grids as (durational) scores for alternating cut-ups of the two time-directions of a recording kept on magnetic (K7)-tape.

Freely improvised and non-academic electroacoustic music {as}[by] urban folk[s]

[September 14, 2019 | #490]
This is an unfinished, growing-ever-larger paper, evolving from the presentation that Rebus and myself did as part of this summer's Re:Sound MAH (Media Art Histories) 2019 conference in Aalborg, Denmark, in which we trace TKOMTIUH ('the music that interests us here') back to the fictional live electronic music jams in the mid-1960's 'Scope' in LA, via the experimental musics of the 1970-1980's, onto its speculative settlement, from the early noughties onward, as URFOLK ('URban FOlk'). The paper includes, as a case-study, a first sketch of a comprehensive history of the seminal international headphone festival 'Le Placard'.

The variegated insameness of lawless str(th)ings

[May 28, 2019 | #488]
The 52 tracks of 'ETUDE' investigate how a contemporary artificial hearer re-cognizes the (within a fixed format) basically lawless, micro-tonal and rhythmically free output of a tiny BASIC program that back in 1985 I wrote, 'poking' the Commodore 64's SID chip. Now available on Bandcamp. The download includes a 71 pages e-book with scores.

ookoi 2.0: the remaking of a spect[r]al b[r]and

[March 03, 2019 | #487]
Pending future possibilities for early adaption of fully functional digital emulation, on October 14th 2018, in Paradiso, Amsterdam, the ookoi 2.0, physically re-made / re-modelled, made a fist, they stood on one leg, they jumped, they cried, they danced bizarre... "See you in history!" she said. It sounded like a future blast.

T'obsolete or not t'obsolete ... [iv]

[September 1, 2018 | #483]
The fourth episode of "t'Obsolete or not t'Obsolete" looks back upon this summer's Vieux Media Fest at La Generale Nord-Est -where the 16th century theorbo played along 20th century Frippertronics: where a virtual anchor was thrown over from the Cassette Culture Node.Linz exhibition; where we read yellowed 80 year old headlines that - almost - could've been written today and where crashingly crazy things happened when Japanese DIY underground hero Yximalloo came flying over, straight in from Tokyo ...

Rage, rafts and refugees

[August 13, 2018 | #481]
Michael Ghent's cardboard sculpture "Derive" consists in a faithful 3-dimensional rendition of the famous accusing and political "Raft of the Medusa", a monumental early 19th century painting by French Romantic star painter Theodore Gericault. This winter "Derive" was on view for eight days at the Parisian Generale Nord-Est. In this richly illustrated report, see and read all about it, and about the music and sounds that we unfolded around it... with ETC, with Diktat, in public, and unPublicly.
