Has the ultimate chiptune machine arrived?


Though avatars and other types of artist expressions are fairly common Jumo does it in the spirit of releasing himself of the boundaries between audio and visuals.

Jumo – a musical avatar and singular identity in music



The idea behind Endel is that your mind responds to ambient noise in different ways — sound can invigorate you, relax you, help you focus, or put you to sleep. We’ve all been there: uplifting music at the gym, a soothing piece to help us sleep or relax — this isn’t […]

Endel – an algorithm that creates music on demand


We can´t help it but every time we engage with Caterina it is impossible not to associate with the ex-Japan member Richard Barbieri, although to our knowledge they are not related in any way – apart from the fact that both are highly acclaimed artists and their fascination for synthesizers. […]

Ecstatic Computation


We’ve all seen those images of war and the terror that comes with it. But through the media we’ve also heard the ambient and sometimes disturbing noise that goes with it. Many get terrified others want to explore it further, Nik Nowak is one of the those guys. The Berlin […]

TECHNOLOGIC becomes art – Daft Punk revisited


Talk Talk has a music legacy of its own and to learn about the passing of Mark Hollis is sad, to say the least. Although he has been out of the music industry for many years his legacy lingers on. Remember even how I tried to imitate the handwriting style […]

Here’s a nice find – a one hour performance with Amelie Lens, well yes in a tunnel. Perhaps more fitting than one would suspect. The Belgian DJ has really put her self on the map, especially with her recent releases. Being one of the biggest names in techno, Antwerp-born Amelie Lens’ascension […]

Modular synthesizers has long been the go to route for musician with slighter bigger pockets. Building a modular wall will cost you a fortune, but in the same way as KORG has realized that there is money to make from wanna-be geeks with the newly announced Volca modular, so have […]
