for the next meeting we are very happy to welcome Pure (Peter Votava), who has been making music with Push for 2 years, Live for over 10 years, Max for 20 years and synths, modular and drum computers for almost 30 years. Most of it sounds pretty weird, almost all of it rather sombre. His music has been described as (in alphabetical order): acid, breakcore, dark ambient, drones, electro, electro-acoustic, experimental electronics, gabber, hardcore, noise, nonsense, rave, and techno a.o.
He will present his first public Max For Live device (a tool for parameter modulation) and maybe his second (an FM-based chaotic noise generator with a unique FM feature) – if he finishes it on time.
He will present at least one technique of working with Live of which he thinks no one else has ever come up with (it’s useful for editing arrangements and long audio recordings) and is looking for more.
He might talk about his artistic work or prepare some special, short live performance. He can easily be persuaded to talk about early 90s Raves and Hardcore and how it felt having one’s life changed by stumbling unprepared into Tresor in 1991.
We look forward to meeting you all,
Maya & Brian
