Articulação sees avant-garde electronic musician Florian Hecker continuing the collaborative work he began with author/philosopher Reza Negarestani on the 2012 album Chimerization. The album’s three lengthy pieces see different manipulations and the electronic processing of human voices reading texts by Negarestani that explore themes of nature and the culture man creates around it, interrupted and often side-lined by Hecker’s blasts of digital noise and skittering, computer-generated mayhem. Opening track “Hinge” features two stereo-panned readings by noted poet and sound artist Joan La Barbara, known for her groundbreaking work with the human voice as instrument. A second, much noisier track breaks ...

In the age of global capitalism, vaporwave celebrates and undermines the electronic ghosts haunting the nostalgia industry. Ours is a time of ghosts in machines, killing meaning and exposing the gaps inherent in the electronic media that pervade our lives. Vaporwave is an infant musical micro-genre that foregrounds the horror of electronic media’s ability to appear – as media theorist Jeffrey Sconce terms it – “haunted.” Experimental musicians such as INTERNET CLUB and MACINTOSH PLUS manipulate Muzak and commercial music to undermine the commodification of nostalgia in the age of global capitalism while accentuating the uncanny properties of electronic music ...

“Bifurcating a Resounding No!” compounds a variety of prepared acoustic situations, computer synthesis and field recordings developed in the software bidule. It strives to create a multidimensional listening experience both subtle & engaging. It is intended for listening in quiet environments through headphones or monitors with little distraction. The photograph is a book (The Queen’s Gambit), a bookmark (acid) and one of Ingmar Bergman’s favorite quotes “We come into this world with sealed orders”. All of this is inspired by smothered mate (chess) which is a checkmate delivered by a knight in which the mated king is unable to move because ...

Generative music is a term used to describe music which has been composed using a set of rules or system. This series of six episodes explores generative approaches (including algorithmic, systems-based, formalised and procedural) to composition and performance primarily in the context of experimental technologies and music practices of the latter part of the 20th Century and examines the use of determinacy and indeterminacy in music and how these relate to issues around control, automation and artistic intention. Each episode of this RWM series is followed by a special accompaniment programme of exclusive music by some of the leading sound artists ...
