P L A I D "exclusive scintilli preview & 'classics' av set"
plus LUKE VIBERT (laptop set) + DMX KREW live LP launch + KING CANNIBAL (ninja tune) + P45 + Ash-Eq
9 - 3 Sat 6th March 2010 @ KOKO
One of the very first signings to the venerable Warp stable, and still one of the most prolific artists on that home of oh-so-many hard-working creatives, Plaid have always pushed the boundaries both musically and visually having recognized the potential of the two mediums and the advances in technology that has afforded them to take this realisation to it's conceivable limits.
DMX Krew, aka EDMX, aka Ed Upton creates electronic music in just about every form conceivable. With five full albums released on Aphex's Rephlex label, and countless EPs and singles on his own Breakin' Records, his sound varies from electro-pop/breakdance music right through to fully experimental soundscapes, and such credentials stand him in good stead for a night of such high-class electronic tuneage!
One of the very few artists to have been released on both Warp and Ninja, Luke Vibert is a true mainstay of the electronic music field. Countless releases, timeless tunes and multiple remixes have secured this man's place in the collective consciousness of two generations of music lovers, and his DJ sets have a unique quality to them representative of his own personality, a feat not often achieved by merely playing other people's records.
Previously known as Zilla, King Cannibal's name has become synonymous with spine-shattering sub-frequencies in the last year, with his 'Let The Night Roar' LP on Ninja Tune having gained critical acclaim across the board from dubstep and electronica critics alike. He was dubbed by DJ Mag as 'The modern master of satanic sub frequencies'
Last week, February 18th, the Inglourious Basterds Charity Opening at Upper Playground LA was held and all proceeds from this program will be donated to The American Red Cross to help the victims of the Haiti Earthquake.
The third annual Greener Gadgets design competition was held in New York earlier this week. First prize went to a gadget called Augmented Living Goods. It's a concept for a cellphone app to help people choose local and sustainably produced groceries. A user would scan the barcode of an item in a shop, and their cellphone would then inform them where it came from and whether or not it is in season, and relate its price history and comments from others who have already bought it. It was designed by Shane Blomburg, John Healy, Seth Laupus and Andrew Reeves. The other entries can be seen here.
Was invited to see Joe Rush's newest creation; a Metal Tiger sculpture in Shoreditch a couple days ago...
Joe Rush, born in London 1960, is a multi-media artist, showman and cult figure. As the original founder of the legendary travelling underground art and party collective Mutoid Waste Co., Joe is widely recognised as being one of the most innovative and influential underground artists in the world today. He constructs extraordinary animals, birds and beasts out of discarded or recovered machine components, automobile parts and other engineering detritus.
Clavilux 2000 - Interactive instrument for generative music visualization from Jonas Heuer.
The Clavilux 2000 is an interactive instrument for generative music visualization, which is able to generate a live visualization of any music played on a digital piano. The setting of the installation consists of three parts: A digital piano with 88 keys and midi output, a computer running a vvvv patch and a vertical projection above the keyboard.
For every note played on the keyboard a new visual element appears in form of a stripe, which follows in its dimensions, position and speed the way the particular key was stroke. Colours give the viewer and listener an impression of the harmonic relations: Each key has it's own color scheme and "wrong" notes stand out in contrasting colors. Furthermore the piano player can switch between the standard 2d view and an additional 3d view of the visualization while playing.
