Analogue electronic computers pre-date their digital counterparts by several decades, and one of the first practical applications of the analogue computer was in controlling the trajectories of German V2 rockets as they traced their rainbow of gravity from Flanders towards London during the Second World War.

└ from 12 — Jacques Attali


During this period, the musical score is tied to a physical carrier for the first time, and thus becomes a commodity for sale in the market.

Both as a source or inspiration, as a metaphor, as a thinking model and as an 'attitude' in relation to his practice.
└ from 13 — Remco van Bladel


Sound in relation to image remains an elusive phenomenon that continues to fascinate him because sound/music is the most abstract art form.

The subjective nature, the way in which vibrations can release such strong emotions, makes it possible to deal speculatively and to use them for use in typography, image, material choices, folding methods and bookbinding systems.

This tactility, the application of materiality and the use of printing techniques as a metaphor for sound play a major role in his entire practice.

The presence of failure in a musical system represents feedback in the negative, a turning point in anticlimax, irrelevance, the everyday, the cliché or even unintentional silence.

Many artists try to eliminate true, catastrophic failures by scripting, scoring, sequencing or programming their work in as many predictable, risk-free quantums as possible in advance.

They then explored Lissajous figures, waveform representations and other multiplexed, audio-driven visual shapes and forms which can be displayed and manipulated in real-time on an XY oscilloscope, Vectrex game console, ILDA laser display and other analogue vector displays, or with oscilloscope emulating software directly on a laptop.
└ from 16 — Tektronix Oscilloscope Music


Analogue electronic computers pre-date their digital counterparts by several decades, and one of the first practical applications of the analogue computer was in controlling the trajectories of German V2 rockets as they traced their rainbow of gravity from Flanders towards London during the Second World War.

Post-war developments continued in this direction.

An example is 'Tennis for Two', programmed in 1958 by William Higinbotham on an analogue computer at Brookhaven National Laboratories in Long Island, New York, using an oscilloscope as the display.

It combined a two-player interface with physics models of a bouncing ball displayed as vectors in motion, and is arguably the first publicly playable video game.

And by the early 1970s, an interest in cybernetics, systems theory and automatic processes brought the analog computer closer to the worlds of art, music and architecture.

Figures such as Heinz von Foerster, Gordon Pask, Nam June Paik, Steina & Woody Vasulka, Iannis Xenakis and R. Buckminster Fuller all speculated on the effect of computers on society, and used computer-derived forms in their work.

The 1972 Rutt-Etra Video Synthesizer, used famously by the Vasuka's in several works, employed an analogue computer to manipulate and deconstruct the raster of a conventional video signal with very otherworldly effects.

Vector graphics were widely adopted by video game manufacturers in the late 1970s due to their computational efficiency, and the wealth of experience using them that the history of analogue computing provided.

Perhaps the most iconic of these games is Asteroids', a space shooter released by Atari in 1979.
└ from 16 — Tektronix Oscilloscope Music


As electronics became cheaper, smaller and faster in the 1980s, the dated technology of using analogue vectors to directly manipulate a Cathode Ray Tube fell out of favor and rasterised graphics and animations, and moving image quickly took their place.

Informed by the discourse of media archaeology, my own personal interest in analogue vector graphics isn't merely retro-for-retro's-sake.

Black MIDI' is a music genre consisting of compositions that use MIDI files to create song remixes containing a large number of notes, typically in the thousands or millions, and sometimes billions.
└ from 30 — Black Midi


DE PLAYER has always had a strong interest in emancipating publishing from its stereotypical understanding as merely making things public – an understanding that comes from an historical and economic media constraint linked to the print, software, music and film industries, and that has limited any form of meaningful, explorative, complementary or conflictual combinations between media in the field of cultural production.

This not only counts for publishing but also for exploring new possibilities for artist practice in general.

This is an interesting process in which boundaries can be explored and in which the idea of 'cracked media' – whose performers challenge the intended effect of the technology and actively use alternative acts through subversive acts of abuse and misconception to generate results – is an interesting one.

This one is a pretty contemporary example and results in great imagery and sound.

Some of them, like Jason, record the MIDI files at a slow tempo and then speed up the footage in video editing to avoid RAM and processing issues.

The term 'black MIDI' is derived from how there are so many notes in each piece that the score would look nearly black (or would look really black) when transposed to the form of traditional sheet music.

The Guide to Black MIDI', however, denies this influence, stating that, 'We believe that references to Conlon Nancarrow and piano rolls are too deep and black MIDI origins must be found in digital MIDI music world.

It has garnered acclaim from journalists, bloggers and electronic musicians, with many noting it as a distinctive and engaging genre thanks to how regular piano notes are combined to make new, abstract sounds not heard in many styles of music, as well as the visuals representing the notes.

Fusinato presents himself here in the guise of a worker, clocking on and unceremoniously clocking off at the end of the day, refusing to allow the behind-the-scenes mystery of rehearsals and preparations to lend an aura to the performance, and affirming the deskilled ethos of his work.

This is the energy of implosion, which always infers at least the potential of its counter-energy in explosive energy radiating out from the single point of origin.
