Videos @ SUPERBOOTH17..

During SUPERBOOTH17 we recorded a lot of great concerts and Performances. From now on once a week we release one of them on the web shown here and on Stromkult at least.

Next one will be Mario Hammer, who made the very first so called Gesprächskonzert for AKAI, that was the official release of AKAIs new sampler and same time the release of his new record „Je l’ai caliseé la“ as „Mario Hammer and the lonely robot„. .. to be seen here thursday night.

KORG Performance @ SUPERBOOTH17

One of the uncounted real synth concerts and a smart performance on SUPERBOOTH17 was the product presentation alias Gespraechskonzert for KORG in the Cinema (open this link to find their complete 2016-performance, too).
Jörg Sunderkötter – known as Sound&Recording’s earlier chief editor, on keyboards – and his studio partner Joker Nies – also an expert for circuit bending – had some problems to find on stage but then it became like this .. turn it loud and see yourselves, please.

On Resident Advisor ..

An Interview with me has been released here on resident advisor now. I would like to add, that Analogue Solutions has once been copying modulars in a rather low quality compared to those few others e.g. from Analogue systems but .. they became much better in between. And also SchneidersBuero was a freaky place when we started collecting all the little manufacuturers from their private little corners to make them visible for the world. Thank you.

Was ist ein Synthesizer?

Es beginnt ja erst interessant zu werden, wenn Ungewöhnliches passiert. Je weiter die Entfesselung, die Auflösung in Funktionen getrieben wird, um so interessanter und vielseitiger ist ein Synthesizer, um so berechtigter trägt er diesen Namen.
So erschließt der Synthesizer einen neuen, ungeheuer vielseitigen Raum der Phantasie-Entfaltung für den Musiker, den Komponisten, für die Ausbildung, das Labor, das Studio. Für den forschenden und suchenden Menschen im reizvollen Kräftespiel zwischen der eigenen Vorstellungskraft und der unergründlichen Vielseitigkeit des Systems oder für jenen, der sich einfach durch willkürliches Probieren überraschen lässt.
Wir befinden uns immer noch im Anfang des Kunststoff-Zeitalters der Weltgeschichte der Töne und Klänge, in dem, wie in jeder Entwicklung, am Anfang der Missbrauch steht, die Imitation von bereits Dagewesenem, bis mit dem neuen Stoff auch die neue Form entsteht.
Der echte Synthesizer ist aber kein Musikinstrument in diesem Sinne, er ist vielmehr ein System zur Entfesselung und des Sezierens, der operativen Auftrennung aller nur denkbaren Nervenpunkte am komplizierten Organismus eines Tones oder Schallereignisses und ihrer Wiederzusammenfügung in beliebiger Gesetzlosigkeit. Je willkürlicher, je komplizierter, je unberechenbarer dieses System arbeitet oder bearbeitet werden kann, desto reizvoller und interessanter ist es. Zumindest für den, der das sucht, was bisher noch kein Musikinstrument zu bieten vermochte, den Vorstoß in einen unbegrenzten Raum von Möglichkeiten, in dem man fasziniert und resigniert zugleich die Hilflosigkeit unserer Vorstellungskraft erkennen muss.

The nerdiest Synth meet ..

_mg_1753-copy.. called Superbooth will happen this week in Berlin. It was well described by Peter Kirn, related to Musikmesse or NAMM with plenty of info, but unfortunately Wolfgang Seidel will not participate to give us some historical insights, I am sorry.
In between three talks, about 20 daily workshops and more than 100 concerts & presentations combined with more than 160 exhibitors from all over the world you will most probably find something else.
