Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Mutable Music
Interfacing MaxMSP with a violin, Mari Kimura extends the traditional expressive techniques of the instrument, focusing his research primarily on the range of subharmonics. “The World Below G And Beyond” – however – use an approach which seeks to implement a technological framework able to increase structural references in both the experience of the performance and the listening, channeled using virtuoso but very contemporary performative strategies. This is interactive music deployed to experiment with new relationships, to expand the tonal system while modulating improvisational skills, but bringing them back under the control of executive processes. The project is composed of sixteen tracks that are passionate and melancholic, abstract but not without oblique narratives and moments of intensity, calibrated in a style capable of presenting strong emotions, educated quotes, and rich synergistic crossovers. Several interconnected elements come together in these graceful and delicate tonal tunes.
