Rave on! Five must-see films on the Hacienda and Madchester scenes

Delivered... Ken Taylor | Scene | Mon 29 Oct 2012 10:00 pm
It's always a blast to take a look back in time at dance music's formative years. And last week, after an interview with New Order's legendary bass player Peter Hook, on his new compilation celebrating 30 years of the equally legendary Manchester club, the Hacienda, we thought it appropriate to examine a bit more of the back-story—particularly how the Hacienda (sadly now an apartment complex) and the greater Madchester scene influenced rave culture at large. So, for your Monday viewing pleasure, here are five Hacienda and Madchester flicks you must peep now.

All throughout this week in the European capital of techno, Berlin, you’ll find the latest in city-wide festivals, Berlin Music Days (known to the locals as BerMuDa), which spreads itself across the myriad of clubs and culminates in the mega-techno rave Fly BerMuDa at the legendary (former) Tempelhof airport this weekend. Alongside the main stages, which play host to the likes of Sven Väth, Luciano, and Chris Liebing, Beatport will be hosting their more intimate arena featuring DeWalta, HRDVISION, Wankelmut, Pinch, Clockwork, and Photek. In the run-up to the event, we managed to sit down with all the artists and get their thoughts on playing this huge event.

Sound in Space, Visually: Spatium Are Free, Open Source Spatialization Tools

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Artists,Scene | Mon 29 Oct 2012 2:22 pm

Human perception is capable of astounding feats of sensitivity in localizing sound – it is very likely an evolutionary trait. Yet musicians rarely tread beyond simple stereo, perhaps because it’s tough to be creative in space without something that’s visual and intuitive, something that looks like what you’re hearing.

Spatium is an extraordinary set of tools for sound spatialization, built in [graphical patching language] Max/MSP and [creative code environment] Processing. It’s free and open source, a set of modules anyone can use to manipulate sound in space or as the basis of their own tools. Portugese artist and developer Rui Penha, who built these as part of his dissertation research, explains:

[Spatium] are a set of free, open source and modular software tools for sound spatialization, comprised of spatialization engines, spatialization interfaces and plugins.

The interfaces are basically Processing sketches that send OSC, so they can also be useful for other purposes. Also, the plug-ins are basically OSC automation recorders, so they can also be useful if you want to write OSC automation along the audio on your sequencer tracks.

This is a research project, not a commercial endeavor, so for now the tools are Mac-only and you’ll probably want a bit of experience before you try to set them up. But Rui has prepared some very nice videos. And you have a number of ways you can use these tools: as Max patches, as Processing sketches, as interfaces for other tools (even visual as well as sonic, it seems), and even as plug-ins. In fact, if you read between the lines above, you may already have worked out that these could be powerful OSC automation and sequencing tools for a variety of applications (hello, visualists).

Here’s an overview of what the tool set can do:

And since this is not only an exercise in tool-building, here’s a beautiful performance work that uses the system:

Description:

for flute, bass clarinet, piano, violin, cello, electroacoustics and video, both generated in realtime.
The video is following the piano events and controls the spatialization of the electroacoustic part, using the upcoming ‘spatium’ software. The video is done in Processing and the audio in Max/MSP, with sounds from a Continuum fingerboard. The original audio is for an hexaphonic loudspeaker setup, here a stereo mix down. Also, the original video was 50fps and the movements were much clearer, but I had to upload a 25fps version due to vimeo limits.

Seeing this work is nicely serendipitous, as I was just yesterday attending a lecture by London-based artist Memo Atken as he presented, among other works, his Simple Harmonic Motion series. To me, these kinds of connections make work stronger – for all the fear of “someone else has done that,” it seems people should be more concerned when people aren’t working in similar directions.

And that brings us full-circle to the importance of this being free and open: to make spatialization a richer component of musical output, you need to share. You need other musicians and composers working with spatial media in order to more regularly program that music, whether we’re talking clubs, galleries, or concerts. You need to better develop musical techniques to make these expressive. And you need people sharing ideas and interfaces in order to progress. Absent commercial models for funding development, you may also need to share free tools with one another just to get the tools the maturity at which they’re most useful. So, free development is a great place to start – and it’s a pleasure to get to spread the word, having talked to Rui for some time about this long-term work of his. Let’s go have a play, shall we?

You’ll find videos of all the different tools at the official site, including downloads and source.
