Notstandskomitee live video Münzviertel Strassenfest

Notstandskomitee live at Münzviertel Strassenfest, 19.6.2010, Hamburg. It was windy,cold and wet, few people, monitors kept collapsing, in short: a typical Hamburg streetfest. I expected the worst, a new low in my career, but it was fun and good test of equipment.
Please note the small black netbook which ran the whole show, together with Archlinux and a realtime kernel. Csound replayed the loops from the studio, process them and provided synthesis for my solos.

doubles instead of floats

Münzviertel Strassenfest concert was great. I expected it to rain the whole time and junkies explaining me on stage how stupid electronic music is, but actually everybody enjoyed it. The schedule was tight but it was even room for one encore (which I prepared just last night). I will post a video soon. Csound, except some minour glitches nobody noticed, ran fine on my Atom single core netbook. And the bass was allright, lot of compliments about the sound quality. I think its because its Csound compiled with doubles instead of float precision but what do I know.

Notstandskomitee live @ Münzviertel Strassenfest 19.June 2010

Notstandskomitee performs at the Münzviertel Strassenfest in Hamburg, 19.June 2010 19:00 at stage Repsoldstrasse. I just picked up poster and flyer, well, two ways of spelling Notstandskomitee and none right. But anyway, if the weather is ok its going to be a blast, with more bass as at the Le Placard Headphone festival.

video of Elektronengehirn LAC performance

I uploaded a video of the Elektronengehirn concert at the soundnight at Linux Audio Conference 2010 in Utrecht. Its a full length video of the performance in SJU Utrecht at Linux Audio Conference 2010 on 3. May. Not much to see, more to hear. Algorhythmical composition processes been live controlled and augmented with some live playing. The piece is done in Pure Data and running on a Linux laptop (Arch Linux), all sounds are synthesized in realtime without samples or prepared tracks.
