Beautiful New Music from tehn, the Maker of the monome [Interview]

eighteenth-weathervane

Brian Crabtree, alongside partner Kelli Cain, nicely exemplifies a lot of this site’s raison d’être over the the past ten years. Artmaker and toolmaker are indistinct roles; they’re both flipsides of the act of making.

The monome, the invention for which Brian is best known, is at first blush nothing more than a box of buttons. It’s even lifeless until connected to a computer. But in its design is a statement that draws a thread from the design of tools to the design of music. Ideas about compositional technique are embodied in the software; notions of aesthetics are evident in every detail of construction, material, and sourcing. The same is true of its successors, arc and the ultra-limited aleph.

This is a tool that is also a sculpture – music made into an object. (The Museum of Modern Art and LA County Museum of Art each took notice. But maybe it’s more important than a community of musicians did.)

In other words, Brian has been doing what composers do. He’s been externalizing ideas about design and aesthetic, encoding messages about what beauty is.

In some ways, though, you need that musical soundtrack to fully decode the message. And so it’s significant to me that we have some of Brian’s first recorded music in a long time. (He’s been active in live performance, but hasn’t committed anything to an ‘album,’ as such.)

The results are beautiful, organic. Not one but two outings have debuted this summer. There’s skyclad, a four-track EP on The Leap, a label based in Boston and Santa Fe that pairs live events with releases and podcast. (It’s no stranger to the monome community.) And there’s eighteenth on Detroit Underground – a second EP.

skyclad by tehn

skyclad journeys effortlessly from natural landscape to fuzzy electronic waveforms, as if a set of synthesizers was captured, timelapse-fashion, growing out of a mossy forest floor. Rhythm and form are leisurely, informal – the one pulse (on “iii”) sounds as much like a heartbeat or excited gait, while other melodic parts wend in and out freely. Some sounds are literal, field recordings and birdsong. But by the time “iv” arrives, it seems just as logical to substitute the electronic for the aviary.

weathervane from kelli cain on Vimeo.

Skyclad is lovely, naive by design. Eighteenth is more sophisticated in its textures, not only more densely-layered but shifting more subtly. “weathervane” may come from cold, but warms like the inner glow from sitting next to a space heater – even if it was “written during two different spells of freezing weather. silver skies, found melodies, static wash, roofs collapsing.” Melodies are deconstructed into piled layers of buzzing fabric. Electric shapes gather in hives of activity, ambient spaces that are nonetheless full of perpetual motion.

“eighteenth” is more what you might expect of tehn, delicate sliced-up chimes. But if the slicing techniques and cosy pads are predictable, the result is transcendent, a mournful blanket of looped samples, bobbing slowly like the memory of a sea.

eighteenth from kelli cain on Vimeo.

Kelli Cain’s videos are somehow the perfect aesthetic frame for the music. (Kelli is, in monome circles, just as well known as Brian, an ever-present partner in the project’s unrelenting perfectionism.) The material is unremarkable out of context – it could be nicely-shot BBC footage of Earth – until you add the sound. Then, but they’re worthy objects of meditation, impossibly synced to the natural flow of the music.

As the quote goes:

and then the trees gathered
speaking slowly with shimmering intensity
all in perfect agreement

We’ve had no absence of tehn on this site, but it’s the first time we get to talk about a significant music release. Knowing how outspoken Brian could be, I was thrilled.

CDM: First – wow; this made me smile.
“geologic time, paper, artisanal computer code, irrational rhythm, collected grasses, magnetic tape, resistor-capacitor networks, the arch druid”
Nice turns of phrase.

Brian: yes. calling code “artisanal” makes me laugh and also pretty nauseous. i’m very wary of technical hand-waving as a way to validate or distract from actual substance. hold on while i make myself an artisanal peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

What’s the tool set here? (mlr [the sample-cutting Max patch popularized with monome] seems to make an appearance, of course, but specifically…)

mlr is the main instrument on only one track (eighteenth) which was recorded in 2008. these days i tend to use it more sparingly and as a processor, to create layered rhythms of harmonies over more deliberate instruments. it was almost 15 years ago i started exploring this form of live cutting– i’m actually a bit surprised i still find new methods and sounds coming out of it. though it’s certainly still indispensable while playing live.

the foundations of almost all of these recordings began with working out progressions and collections of notes on a piano, distilled onto scraps of paper which were typically impossible to decipher later. i feel this is a very important stage, giving solid direction when exploring different synthesis and processing.

tehneighteenth

Are they improvised, as such? What did it mean to “commit” them, as you say, to these recordings?

improvisation plays a role, certainly. but noodling with a computer is quite different from a trombone. skyclad ii is fully improvised in a sense, but it’s perhaps better described as generative. the application i made (meadowphysics) to create it is a form of precomposition, the notes and modulations carefully chosen, yet this was a live take where i was consciously modulating the rule set with the grid.

See meadowphysics in action here:

meadowphysics from tehn on Vimeo.

It’s been a while, of course… what made you decide to make this move back into committing recorded music now?

though i’ve been consistently trickling out single tracks and live recordings, it’s been about a decade since i released music as a full collection. improvisation had a lot to do with it. when the grid came into my practice i was suddenly able to rapidly produce immense variation on small musical thoughts– a tiny precomposed framework could be performed so many different ways that deciding on a single recording would be a bit paralyzing– how would i even know which was best? what does good even mean? discovery in performance, sharing, recognition?

time is very powerful– music making after taking a long break feels quite different. i was able to forget a lot of habits and let go of some previous obsessions. like somehow now i can work more deliberately.

Can you say anything about the distribution channels for this music? That’s been significant to the hardware you design, too. It was nice, for instance, for me to get the EP via Detroit Underground’s Drip.fm [a label-specific subscription service].

distribution, let alone the act of just getting heard remains a mystery to me. i’m grateful that we have people committed to promoting and sharing new music– most artists i know (myself included) are horrible at self-promotion.

Yes, guess that’s my job. How are you finding music?

i still tend to rely on recommendations from friends– though the ability to hear almost any music with a few clicks makes this a very different experience.

Returning to making music, what’s the significance of the tools you’ve made… or that others have made? (I know this matters a lot to me with our own MeeBlip… and also knowing and being neighbors here with Ableton, Native Instruments, Liine, MFB, TouchAble, etc.)

making tools for me is way to get more precise results, or to produce something otherwise difficult or impossible. the aleph distills many sound experiments into a playable instrument. rather than setting up a complex chain of software i can just turn it on and everything goes, which is important for trying to stay in a moment rather than shifting to engineer/programmer brain. often when a discontinuity like this happens i get preoccupied with redesigning the tool, and that’s not conducive to actually finishing music.

randy jones’ [Madrona Labs] aalto is used a few times– it’s the only soft synth i use these days. the sound is amazingly organic. the only other new-ish instrument used is the [Teenage Engineering] OP-1, which is really a sketching and idea-capture tool. it’s so tiny– fits under the bed or anywhere. the old reliable machines are on there of course– [Roland] juno 106, [KORG] ms-20, [Roland] space echo.

As far as the music, I love this sort of free-flowing feeling, even apart from the improvisation… there’s a relationship of noise to melodic elements, almost as if these note materials are themselves part of the soundscape. How do you conceive these different materials? Is there a compositional frame in mind?

in weathervane there’s a persistent field recording of our barn roof being disassembled. the scattered rhythms of cedar shakes hitting the ground get paired with pulsing synth polyrhythms and also stand in as a replacement for hi-hats. a synthesized static wash emulates parts of the same field recording. later the melodic and harmonic material gets woven throughout, creating an interplay but also making space.

also pertaining to nature/noise, on skyclad i the rhythmic foundation is a bunch of dry grasses getting shaken. a close listen reveals these super-granular slow-attack little clouds, which to me were far more interesting than some of the software-based rhythms i was trying to make.

skyclad

Like me, you’ve come from some more traditional training in music. I find that preparation means something very different to me now with some distance from it, years after the composition lessons and so on, than it did when I was in the middle of it. What have you kept around? What have you discarded? What has resurfaced?

i feel fortunate to have been shown many different directions. school was less about rules and more about finding out what’s happening and what people have been exploring for decades. i think what’s stayed with me is a respect for the many people who have come before us, and constantly attempting to comprehend and appreciate these foundations that we’re all trying to build upon.

Thanks, Brian. Find this – and more music from tehn – here:

Meet Those SoundCloud Premier Partners, Advertisers – And Look Back 5 Years Ago

onsoundcloud

SoundCloud’s On SoundCloud program, which includes the ability to add optional advertising to your content as a revenue source, is initially available only to Premier partners. Premier is a new, invite-only membership level that has extra features the rest of the community doesn’t get – though, as with advertising, SoundCloud says most of those features will eventually be available to all paid users.

But just who are those Premier partners getting the list? SoundCloud sent over the complete launch list to CDM so we can all have a look. It includes some big names (Sony, BMG), but also artists, comedy content, and podcasts.

What these users get that the rest of us don’t:
1. A “visual” profile (looks different than the standard profile page)
2. More stats, additional account management support
3. Geographic controls (for restricting content by region)
4. The ability to have promoted tracks/profiles
5. Revenue sharing from ads (though eventually, you’ll get that, too)

SoundCloud had previously said even things like new profile looks will eventually be available to others.

Despite all the speculation about Universal Music Group and whatnot, what you get is sort of a random sprinkling of different kinds of content. As it has since SoundCloud’s founding, electronic dance music is featured heavily – though it’s more mainstream-focused channels, not the likes of M-nus Records or Warp or Ghostly or the like. (In fact, labels don’t really feature so heavily here at all.) You’ll also notice that spoken word – a big focus for SoundCloud – is represented. So this isn’t just about music, either. And for those of you listening from the United States, these are the ads you’ll be hearing.

The publishers BMG and Sony are, of course, really interesting inclusions, as those are where one would expect significant licensing costs that would need to be offset by ads.

I do notice that most of the kind of music that I care about on SoundCloud is missing here. On the other hand, I don’t really need the SoundCloud users I interact with to be “premier.” And given that many of you have said, directly, you don’t want to enable advertising, this may all be a non-issue.

Where SoundCloud Came From – And How It’s Evolving

One commenter posted a video that I found really interesting (and actually remember watching, when first writing about the SoundCloud launch for CDM). It’s SoundCloud, as it existed on day one. The video reveals a lot about how SoundCloud saw itself – as a means for sending tracks between people, which at the time was a pain. Take a look:

SoundCloud: The Tour from SoundCloud on Vimeo.

It’s remarkable to me that a lot of this vision survives five years later, which in Internet terms is no small matter. And for all of the complaining about UI changes, you’ll also notice that SoundCloud works more or less as it always has. Australian DJ Michelle Owen, who narrates, is still an active user, too. (She missed out on claiming soundcloud.com/michelle, though! I could have grabbed soundcloud.com/peter, but, you know – Swedish-founded company, that ain’t happening.)

Keep an eye peeled for a Google search box in the old Safari populated with “m-nus myspace.” Ah, how times have changed.

You also see two recent complaints regarding SoundCloud. Let’s look at each, and how the company has responded.

First, the original SoundCloud did include public sharing and players. But there was a much greater emphasis on sending tracks. You could set up a dropbox, then have music from that dropbox appear in a feed.

That functionality today is missing, and the replacement may or may not satisfy the original request. The notion is that you use private messages instead. That’s good from the perspective of a filter, but it’d be great if the feature were more discoverable, if we could still have these sorts of widgets, and if the resulting feed were easily navigable. (Okay, so, in other words, they really haven’t addressed this at all.) For those of us using SoundCloud for booking events or (ahem) writing press, this is a major omission. That may be a niche feature, but it explains why SoundCloud has angered some hard-core users, and some time after the major SoundCloud redesign, we haven’t seen any real progress. (In fact, I think advertising still has virtually no impact on those of us “advanced” users, but the absence of the original dropbox vision is a huge deal, by contrast.)

Read how SoundCloud answers this in their help documentation:

Where did Dropbox go?

It may not satisfy you, but it does offer some helpful advice.

The other recent gripes about SoundCloud centered on the redesign of their iOS app. Some of you really use iOS heavily for working with SoundCloud. The new app was innovative as far as simple UI and gestures, but it killed the feature that many of you relied on most – playlist creation.

playlistcreation

SoundCloud is working on adding that feature back, and details the development process in a blog post from this summer. And yes, the headline sums up matters (you users were, evidently, loud!):

We hear you

Also, it’s good to know that you can use AudioCopy to upload sounds from mobile. I never much liked the upload function in SoundCloud, so this to me is actually a superior solution.

In answering that, they get at a core design issue. Apart from business models, some of what has happened at SoundCloud is as much to do with retaining simplicity – the elegance seen in the video above – while adding features, which is always a challenge. And they frame that challenge in the mobile app article:

Keeping the products we build easy to use and straightforward to understand takes time. Simple is complex.

You can disagree with how they’ve met this challenge, but I think you can’t argue with the aphorism here.

I’m not remotely convinced the the addition of opt-in advertising changes the experience of SoundCloud. To me, the ongoing question is how the core users who use the service most heavily, and pay subscription fees, will be met with changes to the Web and apps. That’s not a battle SoundCloud wins or loses in a single moment; it is a continuous contest for the service. And we as users get to judge whether it meets our needs.

For DJ mixes, I actually think it’s generally the wrong service to use at the moment, so we’ll look at that in upcoming stories. But if you have some input into how it works for sharing original music, or questions for SoundCloud, or want to share especially good music resources on the service, let us know.
