1. Roland TB-303 Bassline (Documentary)

Bassline Baseline is a video essay that investigates the invention, failure and subsequent resurrection of the mythic Roland TB-303 Bass Line music machine in the last two decades of the 20th century.

The narrative seeks to invite thoughts on technological mediation within product innovation and creative expression.

The dead-panned ‘documentary’ video attempts to explore how and why creative tools fail and how increasingly more options, parameters or intermediaries devised during a tool’s research and development phase don’t necessarily lead to increased expressivity or virtuosity during the tool’s lifetime of actual use, unless the super-structure of its cultural context is dramtically reconsidered.

Narrated by Nate Harrison (creator of then Amen Break documentary).

2. Sunday documentary : Discovering Electronic Music

Every Sunday, a documentary! Today, Discovering Electronic Music (1983).

Enjoy !


3. Making a cigar box into a synthesizer

Making a cigar box into a synthesizer ! What an idea.

A great one.

Video is well filmed and the sound is particularly nice. The DIY world is always full of creativity.

This short documentary weaves process, story and sound experimentation into a visceral cinema experience.

Box of Sound – documents the process of making a cigar box into a synthesizer by Antoine Kattar: circuit bender, musician, and audio hardware engineer.

The box is expertly put to use by Chicago electronic music producer Searchl1te, to create a truly unique song. Searchl1te is also shadowed as he gathers field recordings, breaking glass to create a snare and banging train cars for use as a bass drum.


4. What The Future Sounded Like (Documentary)

Enjoy !

What The Future Sounded Like.

Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. It was a period of sweeping change and experimentation where art and culture participated in and reflected the wider social changes. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.

Comprising of pioneering electronic musicians Peter Zinovieff and Tristram Cary (famed for his work on the Dr Who series) and genius engineer David Cockerell, EMS’s studio was one of the most advanced computer-music facilities in the world. EMS’s great legacy is the VCS3, Britain’s first synthesizer and rival of the American Moog. The VCS3 changed the sounds of some of the most popular artists of this period including Brian Eno, Hawkwind and Pink Floyd. Almost thirty years on the VCS3 is still used by modern electronic artists like The Emperor Machine.

What The Future Sounded Like colours in a lost chapter in music history, uncovering a group of composers and innovators who harnessed technology and new ideas to re-imagine the boundaries of music and sound. Features music from Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Roxy Music and The Emperor Machine.


5. Casio’s responsibility in digital reggae…

Excellent reading about the old Casio MT-40 and it’s impact on the reggae’s digital revolution.

James Truw from Engadget recently published an great article about the Casio MT-40 keyboard and how a preset became one of the most famous reggae riddim.


6. Arte – Thema “Universal Techno”

Although this documentary about techno music is already a bit older, it is and will remain for many the best of the genre.

“Universal Techno” takes you on a tour of the world of techno music. Barcelona with Autechre, Detroit with Derrick May, Mike Banks, Juan Atkins, Sheffield with Mark Bell (RIP) of the LFO.

The greatest quality of this report lies in the freedom that has been left to the artists interviewed to speak freely of the origins of sound they helped create.

Universal techno is not selling a product but a history, a culture.

In english with french sub-titles.

Enjoy !
