syndae - episode 422
Posted Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Today I watched a short talk on editorial content generation. If you follow the developments in AI these days -self driving cars, bots beating a chess master, and so on- you won't be surprised to find that the same exists for generating texts and videos. Well, syndae is all about music. So I thought, what about automated music generation? A short Internet search tells me they are onto it. And I am not talking about algorithmic approaches. Projects exist which use artificial intelligence for analysing existing music and extracting patterns in notes, styles, and sound. And, blimey, based on the results these programs are able to generate new music. What I did not find (yet?) is something like Alpha Zero, which learns about harmonics and creates new compositions seemingly out of thin air. But I am quite sure there will be such a thing soon. For now, let's stick to artistic music originally created by humans. Tonight's tracks are very much danceable, composed by Obri (Afterglow), Bratenschneider (No Time At All), DR-42 (Dossier Bordeaux 2017), Silicon Slave (Ad Nauseam), Futurum Sonat (eARTh), Jozef Nemcek (Black Hole Collision).

There are no robots on

Yours, Stefan

De facto Berlin School
Posted Wed Feb 14, 2018 4:11 pm by bewoest
EM News Berlin School performed by the band TaboTago, which is actually Berlin based, as a matter of fact. Wink


Watch the video here

Film clips of the live performance at Zionskirche, Berlin, December 10, 2017

The initial idea behind the project TaboTago is a tribute to early Electronic Music legend Edgar Froese, whose work was so influential and powerful.

TaboTago plays or rather quotes both tracks of Froese and Tangerine Dream from the mid to late 70ies as well as compositions and improvisations of their own.

In this concert at the Zionskirche the Band focussed on reviving the spirit of those creative times rather then re-performing actual tracks of Froese and Tangerine Dream from the mid to late 70ies.

New releases

Xander Harris is solo so it’s a bit ridiculous to say “solo” album but this material doesn’t fit within the narrative of Xander land whatsoever. Back in the fall of 2016 I recorded a solo album that I have shared privately with people over the last year. The album is a tribute to what I felt were insular private albums with a purpose of contemplative listening. The material is inspired by albums like Eno’s “Another Green World”, releases from artists like Cluster & Roedelius, and Riechmann’s “Wunderbar”. Gazing into a small window of independent artists' catalogs of the late 70s/early 80s where looking inward for answers was a brave statement rather than relying on the shocking outward. Some of this material was written as practice exercises during my time as a percussionist/synth player in Neil Lord’s project Future Museums. Some of the material was written in response to the realization of getting what you need is far more attractive in the end than getting what you want. It’s an album intended for late nights with a glass of wine thinking about what work you need to do on yourself but also reflecting on the positives those you love have given you. I had intended for this to have a physical release but I don’t really think it’s necessary anymore. In some ways this album feels like a private diary so maybe it existing in the digital ether is for the best. I miss the days of just posting something and releasing something because you just feel the compulsion to do so outside of release cycles, waiting forever, talking about something you have no idea how to formulate an opinion 18 months after it’s inception. You tend to get histrionic about these things and sometimes I feel like maybe that’s not the healthiest. Download away and enjoy, it’s a “pay-what-you-want” release, I made it to be listened to. Hopefully this will tide you over until the next Xander Harris release. Be well, be kind to each other, remember your perfe . . .
