Présence Capitale - Nostalgie de la boue: DMA2. Paphio23 and I have decided to make a tribute to DMA2.

nostalgie de la boue: DMA2

DMA2 was a french Bordeaux-based organization created when a previous one, DMA1, disappeared [a short history of DMA1 can be heard in the audio file Sur Un Bordeaux Différent]. DMA2 organized many concerts in Bordeaux during the eighties and early nineties. DMA2 was especially known for its annual festival DIVERGENCES/DIVISIONS, that was one of the most important festivals of industrial music of the eighties (with "Berlin Atonal").

From 1984 to 1989, DIVERGENCES/DIVISIONS has featured : ___________________________ DIVERGENCES/DIVISIONS I (27-28 February 1984) Anne Gillis / DDAA / Die Form / Étant Donnés / Ptôse / Un Département / Yuca Ferdanzen (All from France) DIVERGENCES/DIVISIONS II (21-22 March 1985) André Lombardo.

C’est après avoir programmé en 1981 des groupes art punk de San Francisco dans le cadre de Sigma qu’André Lombardo crée l’association de défense des musiques actuelles, DMA2 ,en 1984 avec le festival « Divergences/Divisions ». « Divergences/Divisions » est alors un des plus importants festivals (avec « Berlin Atonal »). de musique industrielle des années 80 en Europe. Les anglais de « Test Department » qui ont soutenu la lutte des mineurs anglais durant l'ère thatchérienne participeront aussi à DMA2 ainsi que Ghédalia Tazartès et le danseur Alain Rigout ou Anne Gillis.

CDM + Handmade Music Lounge at Solid Sound: Meet These Sonic Builders, in 11 Noisey Videos

Photo credit: Joshua Sarner. This weekend in North Adams, Massachusetts at MASS MoCA, the band Wilco is gathering their very own music and arts festival, Solid Sound. It’s become a real oasis of unique programming, musical and otherwise, and I’m pleased to be a part of it. Wilco’s Mikael Jorgensen and I put together a showcase of some of the best musical builders and DIYers. We’ll be gathering this weekend and talking to all the artists, so any questions you have, we’ll have answers, wherever you are in the world, from Massachusetts to Moscow to Madeira to Macau. Handmade Music Lounge is presented by Moog Music, who themselves build their instruments by hand in North Carolina, carrying on the legacy of Bob Moog.

Reed Ghazala and Circuit Sound Artists in Videos, as NYC’s Bent Festival Gets Underway. Circuit bending has a reputation as involving far-out, unstructured experimental noise, of real violence and distortion done to instruments.

And there’s probably a place for that. But Reed Ghazala, circuit bending’s spiritual father and electronic practitioner, takes a more organic, evolutionary approach. Reed recently told me about his favorite application of his iPad, apart from exploring new experimental soundscapes with tools like the brilliant granular app Curtis. He brings it with him into the forest, using GPS for location, and tracking plants and animals, identifying the sounds of bird and beasts.

Quote: From the photo you provide it's difficult to say if this is exactly what the Double Leopards folks are doing, but you're on the right track as to the general use of mixers by noise "bands".

Noise Band Pedalboard Question (Double Leopards) - GeekChat!

On a smaller eurorack kind of mixer like the one pictured, it's fairly safe to say that the effects are in the AUX send/return loop, and that a variety of sound sources (guitars, microphones and such) are plugged into the individual channels of the mixer. On a bigger, more complicated mixer, individual channels might have AUX send/return loops of their own, and this is where all manner of mayhem can be made.

For example, I have run a synth into channel one of a mixer, eq'ed the heck out of it, cranked the mic preamp for some distortion, ran the AUX send through some effects into channel two of the mixer, Applied more eq and preamp, then ran the AUX send of channel two into the AUX return of channel one. Beavis Audio Research. This is my first build using an arduino microcontroller.

Beavis Audio Research

I wanted to create a simple tone output device along the lines of the 555-based atari punk console, but using solely the mcu as the tone generator. Unfortunately, that was just too simple a task with a microcontroller to play with--it was done in about five minutes and my mind was already forging ahead with a bunch of stupid ideas. Since coding the arduino is simple, I decided to set up eight tone "slots" and then sequence through them. A frequency knob would control the freq of each slot, and a separate tone duration control would allow me to get awesome eighties video game tones.

Spivet" de Reif Larsen est un roman absolument épatant à plus d'un titre, sa lecture me permet fort à propos d'alimenter à nouveau la rubrique "Bruits de pages", qui sommeillait doucement depuis un certain nombre de mois. Et si l'histoire n'a pas vraiment de rapport avec la lutherie expérimentale ni même avec la musique, elle recèle néanmoins pages 97 et 98, un passage fort intéressant dans lequel l'auteur compare les bruits du train aux ingrédients d'un délicieux sandwich dont le palais de T.S.
