S01.E06 – Bribery

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

Another treat for our regular listeners, we talk to Bribery (a.k.a. – Mitch Catterall). When Vince and I made the first episode of this podcast, he said,

“Mind if we use my mate Mitch’s music for the intro and outro?”

I was absolutely open, but a little apprehensive. Then I heard the tracks and… wow. Dark, energetic, and visceral. Somehow; playful, uplifting, and fun. There’s something about Bribery, as a multimedia project, that ticks every box.

Bribery is an experimental electronic musician from Melbourne, Australia focusing on glitchy, crunching beats, alongside warped and twisted vocals, heavily influenced by digital and organic corruption/mutation sounds like Burial remixing Radiohead and John Frusciante.

Mitch Catterall was the recipient of the 2019 Adolphe Spivakovsky Scholarship for Music Composition for his project, Bribery.

In this episode, we talk to Mitch about:

  • Social Media use
  • Multi-media as a journey
  • The inception of Bribery (including using low budget equipment to achieve aesthetically pleasing results)
  • Processing video using CV
  • Stagecraft and live performance as an electronic musician
  • Other projects Mitch has been a part of during his illustrious career, including solo projects Slacktivist, and Lo.Fi.stro

The Filtered Noise Podcast will regularly discuss approaches to making music, what outside influences have shaped the music of our hosts and guest(s), and give some shout-outs to artists who have done (or are doing) cool things – see ‘Music We Talk About’ below.

SE01.E04 – Eleconomics

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

“This music is path orientated, not goal orientated.” – Peter Evans

I thought I’d start the show notes with this quote, as it’s a pertinent part of the discussion at the top of the show. Music making is more accessible than it has ever been. Part of the making process, however, is a constant growth and expansion of ideas which leads us to create the music we do.

We also discuss the efficacy of subscription streaming services, crowd funding, digital pre-releases, and other popular strategies for funding music. This leads to a conversation about the state of music economics and distribution and how they have aged, particularly with new ideas and technologies being explored as a response to the coronavirus lockdowns. Are these methods still fruitful ways of funding, creating, and releasing music? Is the crowd-funding platform now excluding those who it was intended for? What does Joe Rogan’s $100-million deal with Spotify mean for artists, and the value of music as a whole? We discuss these questions and more.

Within these two topics we also talk about developing communities and how that creates canonical growth and maybe even inspiration.

We also talk about:

  • Experimental music and musicians, including Peter Evans, Richard Barrett, Morton Feldman, John Cage, and others
  • The unpredictability of (some) modular gear, particularly referring to SOMA Labs and Make Noise instruments and modules
  • Scores and prompts for intuitive music making
  • Warren Burt’s articles and essays on new electronic music
  • The Melbourne Synth Festival

Faulty Cat Productions · Filtered Noise Podcast – S01.E03 – Forgetting Names

Mental blanks. It actually took me a while to think of that because I was having one. In this episode we continue our electronic music journey by delving into electronic music performance, particularly some of the adaptations we have considered (and in Vince’s case, made) during the current global pandemic. We even hypothesize what impact this may have on the arts moving into the future.

In summary, we talk about:

  • Tools for computer music including Max MSP, VCV Rack, Tidal Cycles, and DC coupling via interfaces such as the iPad
  • Patching options in modular and eurorack
  • Vince’s performance at Lebowski’s live on Facebook (the recording of which is available on Vince’s Bandcamp)
  • Our approaches to making music which incorporates improvisation

S01.E02 – Subharmonicon

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

When Moog releases anything, be it a firmware update or a new product, Brae gets all excited and goes into debt trying to acquire it. In this episode, Brae fanboys really, really hard over the release of the Moog Subharmonicon. Along the way, there’s a bit of discussion about the influences behind the Subharmonicon through the lens of history.

We cover:

  • Moog Subharmonicon: the current reviews on YouTube (Look Mum No Computer, Loopop, Hainbach), the influence of the Rhythmicon, and the Trautonium.
  • Early influential electronic composers including; Evangelisti, Stockhausen, Messiaen, Hindemith, Sala, Ciani, Italian Futurist Machines, and more
  • Ethics of software and hardware consumption, manufacturing, etc.
  • Apple’s new Logic X and Macbook Pro release
  • The integers of Energy and Quality and being unafraid of judgement (a follow-up to The White Pube article
  • Economics of electronic music and the possible impacts of COVID-19 on manufacturing
  • DIY Synthesis and the accessibility of electronic music (both software and hardware) including: The Channel at The Arts Centre, Andrew Huang’s guide to modular, Look Mum No Computer’s simple DIY oscillator and Myles Mumford’s philanthropic endeavours
  • Funding in the music landscape, and how curators control the narrative of elitism in music
  • Ian Parson’s 3MT on Stockahusen’s Licht

S01.E01 – Let’s Get Philosophical

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

In the first ‘official’ episode we get a bit, well, philosophical. That’s not to say we don’t also cover the latest in electronic music making, including gear that caught our eyes, ideas that captivated our minds, and sound that stole our hearts.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Contemporary composers, including Richard Barrett, Aaron Cassidy, Morton Subotnik, and more
  • Andrew Huang’s approach to sound design, particularly the idea of conventional instruments being a preset (or plug-in), and sculpting unique sounds to make music.
  • The release of (and how to pronounce) the Make Noise 0-Control. We also drift into a discussion on what YouTube channels made great quality reviews of the 0-Control: HAINBACH, Loopop, among others.
  • Serialism
  • Zizek’s The Sublime Object of Ideologyhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sublime_Object_of_Ideology
  • Lacan’s Three Orders https://nosubject.com/Order
  • Gabrielle de la Puente’s response to a workshop with Thomas Hirschhorn, in The White Pube
  • and, The energy and/or intent of music, and how it relates to our practice as composers, improvisers, and performers
