- modular synthsizer
For its third edition SONIC DIY*, a music program exploring the creation of sound outside of the regular music spectrum, comes back with a beautiful international program.
- MSHR (European tour)
MSHR is an art collective that builds and explores sculptural electronic systems. Their practice is a self-transforming entity with its outputs patched into its inputs, expressing its form through interactive installations, virtual environments and live improvisations. MSHR was established in 2011 in Portland, Oregon by Brenna Murphy and Birch Cooper. Their name is a modular acronym, designed to hold varied ideas over time.
Jasna Veličković is a composer and performer based in Amsterdam. She has written around 70 compositions using a variety of musical instruments ranging from solo instruments to compositions written for orchestra with live electronics. Since 2008 she became interested in various layers of interference between magnetic fields and music. This became her ongoing research whose aim is the creation of tools that facilitate playing on instruments or objects using the transformative acoustic possibilities of the electromagnetic field. This gradually led her to the invention of the new instrument, Velicon a tactile electroacoustic instrument made of magnets and coils.
Acheface is an electronic artist from The Netherlands whose only instrument is a Eurorack modular synthesizer. His hard and distorted industrial beats have a lot of variation, but remain energetic and danceable. The melancholic melodies are inspired by 80s synthpop and 90s black metal.
The overwhelming complexity of the modular synthesizer produces unexpected musical outcomes, which are hard to attribute entirely to the human or the machine alone.
