JUST PRESS PLAY
JUST PRESS PLAY
Wednesday November 19th
Small Projects is proud to present a new collaborative project with Per Martinsen. Just Press Play is a new series of events putting the focus on immediacy and improvisation within the realm of electronic music.
The processes of electronic music-making has undergone some quite radical changes over the last 50 years, especially within the field of development and availability of new technological tools and instruments. The interfacing between human and machine has changed from time-consuming activities like lengthy tape-splicing sessions and enormous but primitive computers rendering short, pre-composed pieces of organized sound for days (or even weeks) - to the ability to spontaneously manipulate real-time sound generators and processors of live audio.
In the Just Press Play sessions we will introduce different artists operating within the field of live electronic composition and performance, all who are in some way or other luminaries within their field or genre. Each session will start with a moderated talk with the artist, followed by a live improvised performance. Afterwards there will be time to mingle and further discuss ideas and relevant topics over a drink or two.
The first event in the series will feature Per Martinsen AKA Mental Overdrive, who is also curating the series. The introduction talk will be moderated and after the talk there will be a live improvised performance by Martinsen with special guest Le Petit Garcon.
