Two interviews with Paul Berg and Kees Tazelaar

Indeed, this is a special event for sonologists, musicologists, composers and in general for lovers of electronic music. Two interviews with Paul Berg and Kees Tazelaar repectively have been published by the composer and musicologist Ángel Arranz. These interviews were realized during 2009 within the framework of the Institute of Sonology of The Hague.

The first interview covers one singular route of one of the pioneers on computer music. Paul Berg teaches at the Institute of Sonology computer music and algorithmic composition. This interview explores a personal path from the origin of computer programming applied to electronic music towards the most recent computational environments. This knowledge crystallized in AC Toolbox, a computer program on algorithmic composition designed by him. The text describes Paul Berg’s experience through his own words, which makes this document even more invaluable. A certain amount of synchronous subjects are unfolded step-to-step as a sort of algorithm, metaphorically speaking, from the seventies until now.

about

The DK<projection> is an independent multi[inter]disciplinary group whose creative stimulus is the use of technology as a vehicle of musical and artistic transformation.

Algorithmic composition, fixed media, live electronics, live video-​performance, video-​installation, sound installation, photography, contemporary dance, documentary film and architecture, are some of the multimedia expressions explored within an organic whole, starting from the reinvention of musical genres that play a role in visual arts, applied technology and sound spatialization.

From now on, in this blog you can find interesting items related with electronic music, computer music, algorithmic composition, references to a variety of sonological subjects, such as architecture and music, literature related to it, articles, interviews, et cetera. Also, this is will be the place in which we will announce our activities and calendar.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy writing it!

Warm greetings,

The DK <Projection> Team
