new Elektronengehirn album in 2018

Elektronengehirn is working on a new album which is due 2018. The last proper album release is more than 10 years old now and Elektronengehirn was more a live project in that time, experimenting with new approaches to perform complex compositions between prepared material and live expression, using uncommon controllers like data glove or windcontroller.

A first track is available for limited time free download:

Raspberry Pi

Block 4 is pioneering the usage of Raspberry Pis in artistic context since 2013 so we decided to put out more documentation about it inclusive software and schematics. These pages shows how to get 8 channels of analog data in the easy way, with the MCP 3208 a/d converter IC and even provide an external for Pure Data to access it in your patches:

We use it for our project TMS to create effect processors with the Raspberry Pi which can be controlled by sensors with a higher resolution then Midi. The first concert with our custom device have been in London which can be seen some posts below...

A free Max4Live device from Notstandskomitee

I shared one of my MaxForLive devices, a timedomain based freezer made of 16 independent delaylines, good for creating drones. A concept I keep implementing on diverse platforms and used for instance on Notstandskomitee album The Golden Times but also for TMS in form of a PD patch on our Raspberry Pi based effect unit.

block 4 newsletter

Finally we going to have a monthly block 4 newsletter. People recommended it to us for years but we ignored it, concentrating on Facebook after Myspace went down.
In October the socalled organic reach of Facebook declined once more dramatically, meaning that our posts are not reaching you anymore. Facebook altered their mechanism what posts are shown to you to sell more ads. It also became difficult to invite a certain amount of people to Facebook events, hurting underground artists, independent lables and small spaces.
They need to make ends meet but so do we. We tried ad campaigns in the last months to get the word out about our activities but the results are not convincing. Clicks and likes came in but frankly, these people doesn't look like they listen to our music and fancy our art. Don't get us wrong, block 4 embraces everyone and there have been recorded cases of Texas housewives listening to our music in the last 3 decades of Block 4s existence, but 100s of them smells like click farm.
So we decided to try something new for us, a monthly newsletter so you don't miss out anything. Its hosted through Mailchimp, be one of the first to sign up here:
