OTP is pleased to present longtime electronic music pioneer Don Slepian.

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "one of the genre's major talents", Slepian's live electronic concerts have been sponsored by radio stations, scientific groups, computer societies and universities, and his recordings broadcast on National Public Radio via the syndicated program "Music From The Hearts of Space".

A consultant on computer music for Yamaha International, Bell Telephone Laboratories, and Bell Communications Research, Slepian's technical articles have been published by the National Radio Institute and industry bible/magazine Electronic Musician. He has produced many fine recordings, most notably Sonic Perfume and Reflections (both originally released on the legendary Audion label), long acknowledged as classics in their field.

Appearing to effortlessly merge synthesizer technology with elegant classical stylings now for nearly four decades, Slepian's body of work has been described by The Newark Star Ledger as "...a dazzling smorgasbord of computer sonorities, all of them fascinating, some of them achingly beautiful...undisputably a master of his medium."

As a musician who rarely tours the U.S., this will be the one opportunity to see Eraldo Bernocchi's *only* stateside performance this year, and it promises to be a superb amalgam of deep ambient & dense rhythmic interplay, complimented by his unnerving visuals.

We hope to see you here tomorrow @ Eraldo's OTP debut.

Eraldo Bernocchi first emerged in the mid 1980s as part of the famed underground group Sigillum S. After spending the decade building a cult following throughout Europe and the US, the 90s saw Bernocchi steadily expanding his musical partnerships and endeavors. Collaborations with Italian artists such as Afa and Almamegretta, as well as the formation of multi-media company Verba Corrige Productions with Petulia Mattioli raised Bernocchi's profile and began to showcase his eclectic sensibilities.

Besides becoming a sought-after remixer, Bernocchi's launched his SIMM project, and found time to collaborate with such stalwart colleagues as Mick Harris, Bill Laswell, Toshinori Kondo, Harold Budd, & Thomas Fehlmann. In 2009, Bernocchi co-founded Rare Noise Records, whose first releases included new work from Laswell-collaborator/guitarist Buckethead's Death Cube K persona, a new project from Laswell called Method of Defiance, Meditronica (Paolo Polcari and Ashtech) and Bernocchi's Parched duo with Davide Teiso. Throughout these pursuits, Bernocchi expertly navigates the varied sonic contours mapped across the blasted landscapes of beat-intensive electronica, drum 'n' bass, dubstep, and blackhole atmospherica. He promises to bring both a set of deepest ambient & rhythmic complexity to his OTP debut.

OTP is pleased to present composer and lute player Jozef van Wissem, renowned for his unusual approach to the renaissance and baroque lute, cutting and pasting classical pieces, reversing melodies, and adding electronics & processed field recordings to the lute’s rich, historic soundfield.

The unusual wedlock of composition and improvisation creates an unheard amalgam of contemporary folk and late renaissance music. van Wissem has accomplished the strange feat of bridging the idiom of 17th-century lute literature and 21st-century composition. Although he uses subtle electronic sound manipulation, van Wissem has largely stayed faithful to the particular timbre, resonance and playing technique of the lute. Yet his music does not progress in a traditional linear fashion, nor does it lead to predictable climaxes.

In addition to being a composer, van Wissem runs the Incunabulum label and performs extensively around the world, has worked with improvisor/guitarist Tetuzi Akiyama, sound-sculpturist Maurizio Bianchi, experimentalists Smegma, among others, and has lectured at at Wesleyan universtity, Mills College and Cambridge University on “the liberation of the lute”.

I'm pleased to announce that Zombi member & synthesist Steve Moore will be performing @ OTP on Friday, October 1. Moore's work as one half of the duo Zombi has resulted in three albums of kinetic synth prog, but that doesn't mean the group is easy to pigeonhole—they're equally at home banging out a solid groove of sequencer headrush, which situates them somewhere between Ozric Tentacles (minus guitar) and the DFA crew. On his own, Moore's debut CD The Henge proclaimed itself a full-on contemporary synth classic that manages to meld TD's Zeit, Irmin Schmidt & Bruno Spoerri's Toy Planet and Heldon's Allez Teia into an epic thrillride for the senses. As further proof of his nomadic status, he's done remixes for dance acts such as Ursula 1000, and recently released a 12-inch on Germany's bastion for minimal techno, Kompakt. No doubt Moore's already priming his modules for maximum OTP overdrive—set the controls for the heart of the sun.

I'm thrilled to announce that the legendary Malcolm Cecil, co-founder/inventor of TONTO's Expanding Head Band, will be performing along with Spitznagel at OTP on July 17.

Synthesizer pioneers comprise a fairly small, if exclusive, club, but in both arts, technology & music circles, few have achieved the status of Malcolm Cecil & TONTO. For those unaware, TONTO's Expanding Head Band were an influential electronic music duo from the 1970s conceived by Cecil and Robert Margouleff, two Grammy-winning musicians and sound designers. TONTO itself is an acronym for "The Original New Timbral Orchestra", the world's first (and still largest) multitimbral polyphonic analog synthesizer, designed and constructed by Cecil. Its warm, rich timbres were particularly noteworthy and still cannot be recreated by the current breed of MIDI digital synthesizers and samplers. TONTO has been in the private ownership of Cecil since 1975 when Margouleff left the Head Band; currently TONTO is alive and well and resides in its own studio in upstate New York close to Woodstock.

TONTO's Expanding Head Band's first recording, "Zero Time", was released in 1971 and attracted the attention of many leading artists of that era because of the unique, warm, musical sounds that TONTO was capable of generating. Chief among those artists was Stevie Wonder, whose involvement with TONTO started with "Music of My Mind" and continued through "Talking Book", "Innervisions", "Fulfillingness' First Finale" and the Spike Lee movie "Jungle Fever", all projects which featured Margouleff and Cecil as associate producers, engineers and programmers. Indeed, the remainder of the 70s and 80s featured TONTO on albums from Quincy Jones, Bobby Womack, The Isley Brothers, Gil Scott-Heron and Weather Report, among others.

Cecil & his son (who performs as DJ Moonpup) have since devised a form of "virtual" TONTO (the original instrument being too large—see above photo—to cart about for gigging) for use in live performance. It is our honor to host Cecil & his contemporary version of TONTO here at OTP.

Jim Spitznagel is no stranger to odd tonalities, either. Out of his large art/studio in upstate New York (where he works with digital imagery in addition to sonics), Spitznagel artfully bends circuits, relays, delays, and all combinations of hard & software into a tasty pretzel logic for the ear. He has realized his innovative sound recreations across a modest catalog of releases spread out through his Level Green label, operating across a plethora of aliases that take in ambient jazz-glitch, alien exotica, and drunken mechanical abstraction, all of which colaesce into mind-boggling mini-symphonies of harmonically stressed, rhythmically energized bleep and bluster.

Together, both Cecil & Spitznagel bridge multiple generations of electronic artists, their music continuing to resound within the work of contemporary laptop musicians & old-school analog enthusiasts united by their fascination with strange sounds.

We look forward to seeing you at this unique & once-in-a-lifetime event.

One Thousand Pulses presents: An Evening with RICHARD LAINHART

SATURDAY, MARCH 6

DOORS 7:30 PM • PERFORMANCE 8 PM

Well-versed in the varied applications of his beloved Buchla boxes, yet equally agile on numerous synths, keyboards, vibes, and guitars, Richard Lainhart has been reorganizing the topography of tone and texture for over 30 years. Lainhart has performed and worked with John Cage, David Tudor, Steve Reich, Phill Niblock, David Behrman, and many others. His 1987 debut recording, These Last Days, remains an unsung classic of post-academic computer music thanks to its beguiling, animated sequences, charged momentum, and subtle reorganization of electronic and acoustic sounds. Since childhood, Lainhart has been interested in natural processes such as waves, flames and clouds, in harmonics and harmony, and in creative interactions with machines, using them as compositional methods to present sounds and images that are as beautiful as he can make them.

OTP NEWS

EVENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Electric/electronic guitarist Peter Biedermann will be bringing his delay tactics to OTP on Saturday, June 12. Hailing from just northwest of OTP HQ (specifically Butler, NJ), the little-known Biedermann is an accomplished and versatile player, bringing to bear on his hybrid constructs the influence of such illustrious string-drivers as David Torn, Robert Fripp, Steve Tibbetts, and numerous others. Whether solo or accompanied by his ensemble White Light, Biedermann moves between analog and digital regions with a surfeit of ease, forging an (un)jazz that synthesizes the more far-flung aspects of post-rock with contemporary loop-based process systems. Biedermann is cognizant of his chosen tool's limitations as well as its inherent capabilities, and like his forebears, fervently seeks to expound on those limitations. Further info: www.peterbiedermann.com

PREVIOUS EVENT UPDATE

Pogus Productions triptych Al Margolis, Tom Hamilton & Jacqueline Martelle circuit-bent their way through all manners of tonal abstraction at their 2/20 performance. Like the most simpatico improviser, Jacqueline's flute playing, intense and imaginative in equal measure, surfed skillfully atop both Al's library of manipulated tones and the army of Barron-esque (as in Forbidden Planet) squalls and blips Hamilton coaxed from his Nord.

As way of a more complete update than the previous version of this post, I am pleased to announce 4 more additions to OTP’s eclectic 2010 lineup:

• April 3: JOZEF VAN WISSEM www.myspace.com/vanwissem

• April 10: ERALDO BERNOCCHI www.eraldobernocchi.net

• September 18: JASON SLOAN www.jasonsloan.com

• October 17: ERIK WOLLO www.wollo.com


Jozef van Wissem’s instrument of choice, the lute, is not something one would associate being the ideal tool to interface with modern electronic apparatuses, but he synthesizes both contexts perfectly, yielding something akin to a modern digital “folk” music that combines van Wissem’s aural history within the subtle context of laptop software.

Eraldo Bernocchi is a musician of long-standing who has gone very underrecognized in the various EM communities. A founding member of the Italian post-industrial experimental outfit Sigillum S, Eraldo broke into international status signing to the Sub Rosa/Quatermass labels, releasing everything from dark IDM to drum ‘n’ bass to unclassifiable soundsc(r)apes. He has also collaborated with Harold Budd, Bill Laswell, Mick Harris and many others on the boundaries. He’s rarely, if ever, performed here in the States, which should make his OTP debut something special to see.

Jason Sloan produces ambient music in the finest Eno tradition (read: Music for Airports style, for some reference point) but his sonic environments are hardly static — he incorporates the vocabulary of microsound & process/glitch music as much as corporeal drift, yielding works uncanny in their ability to meld perfectly within the framework of both installation environments and performance spaces.

Erik Wollo, no stranger to this forum, continues to do amazing work that stretches borders & genres, augmenting his trademark lush sound with guitars as well as numerous electronics & batteries of synths. There is a compositional vitality and uniquely indigenous sensibility to his music that sets him leagues apart from Berlin School associates yet his varied approaches affords him the ability to collaborate with sympathetic artists such as Deborah Martin, Steve Roach and Frank van Bogaert. His upcoming new release on Projekt in a few months, Gateway, should go some way to further cementing his status as an artist of significance.

Mark your calendars.

Hoping to make it down for the Fleury-Steiner/Mikronesia gig. I was going to try to catch Robert down there, but he's also playing in Burlington VT on 5/1--a nice weekend away with the wife, who went to school up there.

But NJ calls me and I must go.

Excellent - look forward to seeing you here.

However, note that Robert will be at The Gatherings on 5/1 - not sure when he'll be in Burlington.

I'm happy to announce another OTP booking:

- JOZEF VAN WISSEM, Saturday April 3

Jozef performs on his instrument of choice, the lute, interfacing it with electronics, sampling & field recordings in the creation of a rather unique strain of digital baroque folk; perhaps something of a contradictory description, but his music isn't easy to pigeonhole in any case. Nevertheless, he'll be bringing his uncategorizable sounds to OTP in the spring.

I fully plan to post photos of last Saturday's inaugural event, as well as audio samples on all respective OTP sites (including this & other forums as well), all in the next day or so.

Stay tuned!

Darren, you're way too close in proximity (a quick jaunt up the Parkway) for me to say no to some of these shows.  I'll definitely be at Robert Rich, and I'd like to come to the GoS and Experimedia showcases, too.

excellent, brian - look forward to seeing you here!

Though of course this series will be of greatest interest to those in the NJ/NY/PA area, I think this sounds like a fantastic series.  We need more of this kind of thing to keep feeding the "scene," such as it is.  Great stuff, Darren, and good luck!

thanks, mike.

numerous plans are in development to broaden the otp outreach by initiating a network that will begin locally, expand regionally and then eventually nationally. additional related projects are in the works as well, all to be unveiled in good time. :)
