ALF10

Late at last !

Thick & Dark… The new LP release by The Other Color is a cold landscape tinted of pop and beats… Far from 361, they (his) previous album, we are invited to dive in a vaporous sound architecture. Its hard not to compare it to the analog progressive music of the 80’s and not to which you were able to see the sound of it. A blind listening, closed eyes in a dark room, wide stereo in a quiet room, late in the evening, around 22 with a glass of  fine red wine. Turn the turntable on and pump up the volume untill you can ear the needle scratching the groove. It’s like suede when it’s loud. Track 6 gets you close to JM Jarre or Vangelis wile making you smile as what you thought was sad at first sight, turns out to be sarcastic. I love when music is tuned in with semantics to describe potential spaces. I think about the synthetic lines in track 5 transforming into dance music after being simply noisy and meeting later some gigantic electric harps having a chat with some birds diving in a pink noise & some shy sin waves at the gate of a 50hz factory and ends up as an american old fashioned serie intermission theme with rock accents then flanges et bites a strike of distorted guitar and bright synth just before the silence. It tells and it takes… I can’t even tell if it is music ! As with Eliane Radigue, who with subtle variation drags the ear of the assistance as well as its eyes, this opus is also a visual experience.

The Motion Picture Show Stand Alone

Yet another website The motion picture show is a performance featuring live music mix over a video stream made out of movie teasers. I played several times alone.  It evolved recently trough a collaboration with Maud Martin who took the duty of buildingthe video part. I decided to create a standalone website for it.  There it…

the Motion Picture Show (trailer 1)

Split & Merge & Mix & Remix The Motion Picture Show is a live performance featuring Video and Audio remixes of Movie trailer by DidouPh aka Pierre-Henri RAMBOZ (myself) and Maud Martin. More than a regular live Veejay & Deejay performance, it is a snapshot of the contemporary mood … a visionary replay of the…

Out of the amp

Easy Cheezy “m2 is unadorned expressions with the guitar, written, recorded and conceived exactly as it first spills out of the amp. never planned, always improvised. I cannot recreate these pieces. all music by eric san juan. sample these sounds at will.” I came across this website wile browsing the web at random, seeking for…

Paint It Gray

Grey noise and grey ink As part of the “Festival de poche” Dominique Spiessert, a visual artist, got invited to “perform” his art live and interact with a musician… A saxophonist was scheduled to improvise sound wile “dodo” would improvise drawings … but unfortunately, the instrumentalist declined the offer and Dominique got left alone … Luckily,…

Homebrew

Here is a live recording from my living room wile practicing for the upcoming live session of March 27th in Tours as part of the “festival de poche” … I don’t feel comfortable with this session which i consider as raw sketch to stack and pile on top of … but yet it is a…

The Motion Picture Show

cut & paste & trash & pile & mix & compress & eat The Motion Picture Show is a live performance I designed as an evolutive one. Its actually two performances at once. A visual and a musical one at once. The process of the motion picture show is to gather video data from the…

More Old Tunes

Loud Low and Dirty A Live recording from a short performance in Riga (lv) @ RAM5 in 2004 for the RiXc … Its not my best but a good example of a combined “stack & pile” + mix live performance… It was the last time I used my “Old Emma Peel” aka “Powerbook titanium  G4@400mhz”…

Old Tunes

Dusted & Scratched I just riped a copy of my second album called micromontage released in 2001. It has been designed as a “symphonic” and “progressive” single work using synthetic sounds only. 15 track built against a single and simple composition scheme called stack and collapse. It means that audio layers are piled on top…

Stravinsky in the Hood

Its just like running naked in the forest, hunted by a gang of ninja,  under a rain of napalm ! This is yet another work that i designed in 2004. Its made out of video game BMG samples and Stravinsky works (including “bird of fire” and “rite of spring”). This is a real exception in…

23’17” II

It looks different when it is fake ! For those of you who saw the post i wrote about 23’17” and my collaboration with Jérôme Poret, this video contains more information about the exhibition and some live images of the actual work produced out of the model I designed for the artist !

(audio) Easy

Back in 2004 Back in 2004, this very studio work of mine is an attempt to depict what is for me “Easy” music. In my very opinion, easy music is something that is neither POP or Simply designed. So, “my” Easy music, is one that is both minimalistic and ambient. Its to be listened with…

23’17”

Yet another feature… 23’17” is a collective art show designed as a music score rning trough space. I designed for Jérôme Poret, the model for his work as part of the exhibition. This model is featured on Mains d’Œuvres’s website . Exhibition September4 th – October 25th 2009 Opening reception Friday, September 4th > 8…

Remixer II

Interpretation is still futile Listening to music in a contemplative way is useless its for pedagogic or melancholic purpose and can easily be compared to masturbation unless the listened material is produced live. On the other hand, buttons tickling , recorded streams alteration, slicing and recomposing without indulgence for the broadcasted work and thus building a new space and a new time…

Remixer

Interpretation is futile … The requiem isn’t a remix in the canonical way.  The point with it is not to rephrase the original work in order to add to its meaning. Neither is it to produce extra content or to extend the original work’s duration. It is not a way to produce a more fashionable…

Sound, Architecture & Photomaps …

More than a picture, less than memories … It has been a long time since i ha not heard about Alma-Fury. I was pleased to “go trough” the installation they’ve set up in Tours at the Hotel Goüin. The quality of the sound and the “human & social” dimension of the work are invisible ….…

Sound by Artists

Its an abstract landscape. Not a picture, not yet a sound and absolutely not a mural. Its a UFO. A statement that there is something between what is heard, seen and thought.

Urzhiata

“A journey trough digital culture realms across experimental creative practices” This is how Urzhiata blog depicts itself. I tend to extend this description by adding to it. Yet it is what it is said to be but it is more than this. A place to learn and study. A place to learn how to hack…

pure-live-patch V1.2

The “plp” patch quickly evolved. Its features are enhanced. It still can load and play up to ten samples at once and individual pan and volume for each track can be controled from a grid. Thanks to an additional subpatch, a 11th grid controler, allows control of the mix between those 10 samples. The position…

pure-live-patch V1.1

A quick update on the “plp” patch. Its features are unchanged but its now made out of two patches. The main one with the interface and wired engine (plp.pd) and a second one, dedicated to sub-processes like loading sound files and mixing channels (_plp_sub.pd). I also added some comment for the rewiring and help reuse…

Nice Pure Data Article

Audio Prototyping with Pure Data – By Leonard J. Paul Gamasutra – May 28, 2003 While browsing the Internet for some Pure Data, i discovered this very detailed article about prototyping audio data … The author’s example patches are yet complex but simple to understand and can be at once a good way to start…

pure-live-patch V1

I’ve just designed a very simple pd patch to perform live mixes out of large amount of samples. Based on pd-extended it allows one to play 10 stereo sample simultaneously and control pan/volume for each track using a “grid” control alakaospad. At the very moment, it fits my need but i plan to enhance it…
