Live Stage: Apple II Concert [us Los Angeles]

apple2jam.jpegApple II Concert :: June 25, 2011; 6:00 pm: Meeting of the Apple II owners/musicians; 8:00 pm: Concert :: Machine Project, 1200-D North Alvarado Street, Los Angeles, CA :: We are currently seeking Apple II owners to contribute to making this happen! Please contact machine [at] if you would like to participate!

The old Apple II, first introduced in 1977, was a revolutionary computer in many ways. Sound capabilities were not one of them. The Apple II’s sound system, unlike contemporaries such as the Atari 800 or Commodore 64, did not use a discreet sound chip, but rather a simple timer circuit that could be coaxed into creating square-wave tones.

In partnership with Make Music New York and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Darmstadt presents a performance of Louis Andreissen’s “Hoketus,” performed on the facade of the New York Stock Exchange by the extraordinary young ensemble Yarn/Wire.

“Hoketus is performed with amplification set at a high volume, the two groups of instruments situating themselves as far apart as possible from one another on stage, in this case across the street from each other. Melodies are only be built through the interlocking of single notes or chords, played in alternation between the groups using the Medieval technique of hocket. The work is “heavy, loud, dissonant, and brutal, showing influence from both hard rock and the works of Igor Stravinsky (one of Andriessen’s favorite composers)”. Continue reading

The History of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

radiophonic_01.jpgThe History of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

50 years ago this month (April 2008), the most celebrated electronic music studio in the world was established. We trace the history of the Radiophonic Workshop, talking to the composers and technical staff who helped to create its unique body of work — Steve Marshall

image: Before the Workshop: Daphne Oram manipulates a tape loop at Broadcasting House, watched by Frederick Bradnum, 1956 or ’57

I was 10 years old. As the last ‘whoosh’ of the Doctor Who theme dissolved into a wash of tape echo I sat transfixed by the light of the television, eagerly reading all of the end credits. “Wow!” I exclaimed. “I want to get a job in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop when I grow up!”

“I’m sorry, son,” said my father. “You won’t be able to do both.” Continue reading
