LPD019: Lonely Robots

Lonely robots On this seventh CD by the Logos M&M ensemble, a collection of newly built machines are presented individually. Where other CD releases give ample examples of what can be done when the robots come together to form an orchestra, this CD demonstrates the capacities of the new robots playing solo or as duos.The M&M orchestra is a professional group of dancers, performers, composers and musicians focusing on the interaction between man and machine, which has its permanent residence at the Logos Foundation. The machines are all electro-mechanical robots designed and built by Godfried-Willem Raes.

This CD reflects a momentary mid-2010 snapshot of the ongoing efforts of this unique ensemble to redefine musicianship.
Building musical robots has been an ongoing activity in the Logos Labs since its very beginning in the late sixties. It is one of the many results of our investigations into the development of new tools for musical expression.

All music on this CD is in the public domain. It can be freely distributed, even in public spaces, and can be broadcast provided the origin and the authors are always mentioned and given credit.

LPD014: <RoBodies>

The M&M ensemble is a group of performers, composers and musicians focussing on the interaction between man and machine and has its permanent residence at the Logos Foundation. The machines are all electro-mechanical robots designed and built by Godfried-Willem Raes. On this new CD, all the automats form an interactive orchestra: Some of the pieces are exclusively based on real-time composition-code, written for the computer network that controls the automats (Plastic Deformations by Kristof Lauwers and Amorgós by Jelle Meander). Other pieces involve real-time interactive input from human performers. This input can be acoustic, as in the case of Klanklagen and RobotGarden, two collaborations by Moniek Darge and Kristof Lauwers or gesture controlled like in the compositions Gestrobo Studies, PicRada Studies and SQEvSTO4QR by Godfried-Willem Raes.

LPD012: More Automats

Building musical robots has been an ongoing activity in the Logos Labs since the very beginning in the late sixties. It is a logical outflow of our investigations into the development of new tools for musical expression. A mere consequence of the laboratory research into experimental instrument building. The automats documented individually on this CD are all pure acoustical: drums, organpipes, metal tubing, strings, bells, wood… However, these sound sources are exclusively activated by electromechanical means.
Next to compositions by Sebastian Bradt, Barbara Buchowiec, Moniek Darge, Kris De Baerdemacker and Godfried-Willem Raes, this CD contains my piece for SPHK, for automated saxophone and an improvisation i did on a robot called <Thunderwood’>

Kitch ‘n’ glitch

This is an electro-acoustic piece by Kristof Lauwers and Laura Maes.
All kind of kitchen sounds were carefully recorded, cut and paste and finally transformed into an electro-acoustic composition. Most sounds are unrecognizable. Outside their normal environment the recorded sounds are getting a total new dimension.

LPD003: <Ea>

Electro-acoustic compositions from the Logos Studio
Works by: Kris De Baerdemacker, Godfried-Willem Raes, Kristof Lauwers, Moniek Darge & Francesca Verbauwhede

In the Mesopotanian Mythology, Ea was the earth and water god, but also the god of wisdom and the source of all magic.
‘The water god, Ea, was the first of the Babylonian new order of gods. The older gods were disturbed by the noise of the younger gods and devised a plan how to destroy them. But the alarmed Ea, the all-wise, devised a counter-sheme. As the champion of purity he fought and defeated the old gods of the Babylonian Creation Legend, including his own mother, by the utterance of a powerful spell.’
‘But Ea was also the god of wisdom whose jealousy deprived humanity, to begin with his own son Adapa or Adam, the first man, of eternal life.’
