For the Love of Scientific Minds and Indeterminacy (music)

Introducing: MY.COSMO feat. Paula, Benny Bomstærk and so much more!

I am drawn to the Sciences. I dig people who are well-informed about Astronomy, Computers and Physics. Math is the language of music. Everything in the universe follows a pattern…

Sometimes when I really get inspired when I talk with someone for hours. It is also a part when talking about ideas with someone gives me good vibrations and it makes me really want to write about wild things. These days I have been a little reclusive but I have emails from interesting people and music to keep me company. I am open to anything worth talking about even things that might be considered taboo. I don’t moralize. I don’t think I am morally upright or the correct representation of humanity but I am human more or less 😀 And now for nice tracks:

Sacha and Paula worked on this track which was featured here before. It is great to see it uploaded in youtube. Youtube is one medium that makes music easy to share.

Arp Project:IRC music by b3nny( Benny Bomstærk)

Benny and his DAW.

If you stay for just a day in Benny’s apartment I am sure you would be spending most of your time listening to sounds that could have been from outer space. I had a treat today. We hooked up using skype and he let me listened to the Arp Project he is developing. His concept is to translate sounds of people in chat rooms into something that approaches indeterminate music. To explain clearly, think about wind chimes that make music when the wind blows through them. Well, his project is similar to that only this time the ‘wind’ is created by human activity in cyberspace. You hear beeps and pads with ambient lacing brought about by the programmed representations of each event: kicks, quits, someone going online and a lot more.

My workspace now sounds like it has been visited by other worldly beings because of the sound coming from skype transmitting the sound of his work station. It is a fascinating sound that teeters between relaxing and unsettling. The project is at its first stage but it has a big future. He is still doing tweaks and pondering on additional things he could do. This is the sound of nature in cyberspace-people communicating-the sound of humanity.

Benny’s favorite  composers:

Morton Feldman (January 12, 1926 – September 3, 1987)

Rothko Chapel

One day I decided to listen to his favorite composers and picked a track. I started with Rothko Chapel. We started talking and it was surprise he was also listening to the same track. What a coincidence. Feldman was a pioneer of indeterminate music along with John Cage and other composers of the 20th century. The music is described as : rhythms that seem to be free and floating; pitch shadings that seem softly unfocused; a generally quiet and slowly evolving music; recurring asymmetric patterns.

John Cage (September 5, 1912 – August 12, 1992)

4’33

I think the concept of John Cage about listening to other sounds is fascinating. This piece shows one that there are so many things one can hear when he really listens.

Upon Recommendation by Thomas Halstay

Thomas is into Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. He introduced me to the idea of Fractals like the beauty of the triangle and carpet of  Wacław Sierpiński . I think the idea of achieving harmony through mathematical equations is such a fascinating idea that governs everything in the universe including the snow flakes. The two videos he sent me proved his point.

Eric Whitacre: A virtual choir 2,000 voices strong

This video gave me goosebumps. People forget that the human voice is a fine instrument.
