LIST BY TAG
In this blog post I linked to the live jam I did at Soundpond in Adelaide a while ago. I arrived really late and completely unprepaired, but I think it turned out alright anyway. I used three songs as the base (Ponky Super Dub Edit, Linkan, Oso) and re-arranged them live and programmed new bits on the fly.
I borrowed Tim Koch's SX-64 and his effect pedal so I had a nice setup to play with. Sorry for shocking the drum n' bass heads listening to Soundpond before I got on hehe.
But now this recording is not available anymore.
A while ago I made an improvised live-set where people could tell me what to do, by filling in a form. It's like the live-performed version of the more asynchronous previous Dataslav performance. And more abstract. Or concrete, maybe?
I made two 30-minute sets and the second one was documented by Jacob Remin, so here it is for you (wav). The forms below are time-stamped, so you can sort of follow how they influenced the music. If you understand Danish, that is. Which everyone does.
These two movies are screening today on the 21st of October. The first one about the American activist Aaron Swartz who in his fight for internet freedom ran out of steam and ended his own life. The other movie is by Geraldine Juárez and portrays the Bureau for Piracy's wild kopimi style. After these, I will do an improvised C64 show.
The event is organized by Doc Lounge Göteborg and happens at Bengans.
The last 2 minutes of my live improvisation at the party at 3:e Våningen after the FARM-workshop. It was all about live coding, and there were some pretty amazing performances there. Alex McLean and his algorave did not disappoint, for example.
I actually co-organized this event with Palle Dahlstedt and really happy about how it turned out. Live coding is pretty much next level human-computer music to me.
Video of me live-composing music on the C64 at Atalante, Göteborg. It's about 30 minutes, starting of quite ambientish and then some broken funk with a pinch of gabber at the top. The Friktion event focused on making music live from scratch, and showing the tools. Live coding in a way, but not using text editors.
I recommend you to also check out the performances by Niklas Sjöstrand (with a Buchla) and Simon Mattisson with very nice custom-made Nanoloop-inspired interface.
