S01.E03 – Forgetting Names

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

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

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.

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

S01.E00 – Initialising (A Preview)

<<<SHOW NOTES>>>

Welcome to the Filtered Noise podcast – a show about electronic music through the lenses of two ‘cla**ically trained’ musicians. Hosted by Vincent Giles (https://vincentgiles.bandcamp.com/) and Brae Grimes (https://filibusterbg.bandcamp.com/).

On this first episode, we introduce ourselves and delve into the reason(s) we were drawn to electronic music (particularly modular synthesis). We also talk about:

  • Escaping the grid pattern of music
  • Euclidean Rhythms (i.e.; falling back into the grid)
  • Japanese fiction
  • Slavoj Zizek
  • Object, subject, and topic in art and media
  • Lacanian theory
  • Poetics in music-making
  • How we name our compositions

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.
