Johannes Kreidler Loadbang

Johannes Kreidler has released Loadbang – Programming Electronic Music in Pd, a tutorial book on Pd (Pure Data), a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing.

Johannes writes:

This book is designed for self-study, principally for composers. It begins with explanations of basic programming and acoustic principles before gradually building up to the most advanced electronic music processing techniques. Some knowledge of physics is assumed and explanations of basic physics concepts have been intentionally omitted.

My book’s teaching approach is focused primarily on hearing, which I regard as a faster and more enjoyable way to absorb new concepts than through abstract formulas.

In terms of mathematics, I explain only what is absolutely necessary to comprehend a given processing concept. I explain the various techniques from a compositional perspective, rather than attempting a computer science-, math-, or physics-based discussion of processing phenomena or structures. Therefore, the decisions and comments I have made are purely subjective and are open to debate.

The tutorial was financed by the Music University of Freiburg, Germany.

You can the complete book online (in English & German), or order a paperback version from Wolke Publishing House for 29 EUR.

# product placements (2008) – 70,200 samples in 33 seconds: nightmare for GERMAN RIAA

If you want to register a song at GEMA (RIAA, ASCAP of Germany) you have to fill in a form for each sample you use, even the tiniest bit. On 12 Sept 08, German Avantgarde musician Johannes Kreidler will —as a live performance event—register a short musical work that contains 70,200 quotations with GEMA using 70,200 forms.

# Audio Cookbook – AudioCookbook.org is a non-profit resource for music and sound enthusiasts made possible by contributions from Unearthed Music. The content has a slant toward the avant-garde or experimental side of audio production. Whether you have years of technical experience or you are just getting your feet wet doing sound design, you’ll find unique, interesting and useful information that might inspire you, give you an idea, or simply entertain.

# “Bird Box” sequencer – LFSR (linear feedback shift register) for drum sequencing. “Bird Box” is loosely based on the Triadex Muse architecture, but stripped down to two feedback taps and one variable-modulus divider.

# Music Is Math (Finished HD version) – Glenn Marshall's HD and finished version of his video ‘Music Is Math’.

I just let the program run till the end of the music, I felt reluctant to interfere too much by trying to sculpt an ending, and just let the code run its own natural course.

# Phil Durrant on Reaktor and the Laptop as Improvisational Instrument

Peter Dines talks Reaktor with Phil Durrant.

Phil Durrant is familiar to most Reaktor users as Sowari on the NI messageboards, a helpful and knowledgeable presence there. He’s also a renowned experimental musician, having performed with, among others, Ticklish, Trio Sowari and MIMEO, the music in movement orchestra – a collective that includes Christian Fennesz, Peter Rehberg and Keith Rowe.

# JamStudio – Create Music Beats – The online music factory – Jam, remix, chords, loops.

# Apocatastasis (feedback return for cheap digital delays) – Most expensive analog delay pedals have a feedback knob that lets you drive the output of the delay effect back into the input. My Ibanez DL5 Digital Delay did not have this feature, so I decided to make one and make it cheap. :-)

# DMGMITE-01: The Australian Chipmusic Compilation – A collection of tracks from some of the chippest blokes from Down Under.

# AudioWeevil08 – After many months of refinement, I can finally announce the new AudioWeevil08! This version really raises the bar in terms of response, feel and design.
