Rudy Rucker vs Jeremy Bornstein vs Mehdispoz by Greg Deocampo

Talking quickly, Cobb made a stab at getting it down in words. “I’m still there. That’s a higher I of course; the cosmos is layered forever up and down, with I’s on every level-the I’s are lenslike little flaws in the windows of the world-I’m in these chips and I’m in heaven.

Talking quickly, Cobb made a stab at getting it down in words. “I’m still there. That’s a higher I of course; the cosmos is layered forever up and down, with I’s on every level—the I’s are lenslike little flaws in the windows of the world—I’m in these chips and I’m in heaven. The heavenly I is all the I’s at once, the infinite I. We’re hung up on each other, I and I, finite I and infinite I—have you robots learned about infinite I yet? There’s more to a meatperson or a chipperson than ten trillion zeroes and ones: matter is infinitely divisible. The idealized pattern in the S-cube is a discrete model, it’s a digital construct. But once it’s running on a real body, the pixels have fuzz and error and here come I and I. You caught my soul. It works because this real body is real matter, sweet matter, and God is everywhere, Berenice and Loki, God is in the details. We’re not just form, is the point, we’re content, too, we’re actual, endlessly complex matter, all of us, chips and meat. I’m still in heaven, and I always will be, whether or not I’m down here or there, chugging along, facing the same old tests, hopelessly hung up inside your grade-B SF action adventure.

Tomita: Electronic Music’s Godfather

tomita header (0-00-00-00)

“Visionary” is an overused word, but is totally  appropriate when talking about Tomita.

Tomita’s technique was pioneering but it was firmly in service to the music. He made unprecedented sonic and interpretive choices for his interpretations of particularly famous pieces of  by 19th century greats– Mussogorsky, Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Holt.  He was a fascinating composer and helped grow the technology of synthesizers into a genre of music.

Some of his pieces are surprisingly hard to find in a shareable format, although it appears his catalog is for sale. There is only a single link for my favorite, Pictures at an Exhibition. It’s artistically rich. It was an utterly novel instrumentation of a classic, with really interesting interpretive choices.

Here’s quite a lot of awesome:

(Nov 18, 2012): Modesto Mussorgsky – Pictures at an Exhibition (Isao Tomita)

From the 1975 RCA Red Seal release, Tomita, Pictures at an Exhibition. Tomita’s pioneering electronic work from his Plasma Music made classical compositions seem out of the future — certainly laserium shows of the time seemed to think so. Tomita saw himself following Theremin and Martenot from the late 1920s in using 1970s analogue synthesizers…
