It has been many collaborations throughout the years for the immensely productive electro-pop maestro Vince Clarke. Taking a quick look through Vince’s discography, and disregarding his main contributions in Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure, the list is long including acts like Jar, Gore, BT, Burns, Ane Brun, The Good Natured, Blamange, Radcliffe, Paul Quinn, and Family […]
Few places has had such an impact on the exploration of electronic music and sound manipulation as Elektronmusikstudion in Sweden. One may think that this is more a place of the past but as you soon will find out this is a most relevant institution also in today´s music scene. One recent visitor to Elektronmusikstudion […]
Heard about “Der Komponist” before, most likely not, but if we throw in the Moogtonium into the equation, you may think of Max Brand. Max Brand was an Austrian composer focusing both on traditional classical music and, at the same time, pioneering in the field of electronic music. As you will see further down in […]
Frequencies can be sweet to our ears or utterly painful pending on what side of the scale you’re on. Many fine music artists are truly exploring the boundaries of frequencies, although probably the ones pushing the envelope the most are more experimentalists and more likely found doing installations at various art galleries.

So far it seems we are in for a meager output from this year’s MusikMesse in Frankfurt – Day 1 is running and very few press releases has appeared that will lift your eyebrow. Perhaps Superbooth16 killed all announcements we could’ve expected, paired with the releases presented at NAMM two months back in time. However, […]
Modular synthesizers always have a certain alure to them and guessing freely very few utilize the full potential of these machines in their music making, the number of modular geeks where building their rack tends to be a more important goal than music production is probably quite high. A nice exception to this self-made up […]
Frequency modulation is not a new thing and it has certainly been a major force in many classic synth tracks over the years. Most notably of course was Yamaha´s introduction of the DX7. Now in 2016 we are seeing a revived interest in FM synthesis and one of the most recent contributions in this area […]
