New aesthetics in computer music

Unul dintre ultimii artisti care au luat parte la acest proiect initiat de Universitatea din York, centrul de cercetari in muzica, este tocmai T. Deupree.

The project, which looks at radical and independent activities in contemporary computer music, will be exploring Taylor’s practice and his role in the emergence of the “microsound” movement as well as working with him on a new piece for computer processed gamelan.

Miscarea “microsound” este una destul de noua in peisajul eletro-minimalist:

Microsound is a term that encompasses explorations of sound on a time scale “shorter than musical notes.” It includes and overlaps genres such as glitch music, granular synthesis, lowercase sound, etc.

Imi place mult asocierea dintre acest curent si arhitectura contemporana sau noile curente estetice, microsound-ul manifestandu-se

across a wide variety of styles and disciplines – from academic computer music to post-industrial noise to experimental ambient and post-techno.
