“We live in an age of technology in which machines touch every part of our lives. It is not surprising that music has also been influenced by technology.”
Ahead of her new album ‘Florescence’ coming this Friday 23rd Sept, Loula Yorke has kindly shared the opening track from the release.
‘Silverweed’ is one of a number of synth improvs recorded between January and May this year and takes influence from the growing season of the wildflower meadow outside her window in Suffolk.
We’re loving this focused, yet free-form approach across her fourth solo album and strongly suggest setting a reminder to pick up a copy from her bandcamp on Friday.
Luke Sanger exclusive live session for Electronic Sound Magazine has been released on their website. In this set he used a Make Noise Shared System and Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrax for a 20 minute improvisation. Subscribers have access to the full set.

Live performance for EMS Synthi 100, magnetic tape and computer setup (2021)
Radio Concert No.2 is a result of a continuous experimentation with combining the synthesizer EMS Synthi 100 and computer setup in a context of live performance that has been initially dedicated to a live radio broadcast. I have started developing this idea in a Radio Concert No.1 from 2018 and with this new piece, I have taken the idea much further. A complex synthesizer such as Synthi 100 is adapted to a virtuosic real-time sound manipulations that involve the use of computer as a complementary tool. Computer controllers that allow great deal of physical expressiveness in shaping the sound in real-time (such as Sensel Morph, foot pedal, TouchOSC app), interact with the synthesizer and allow rapid changes and complex organization of the material on the spot, that makes improvisation possible and fruitful. I like characterizing my approach lately as doing the inversion of the music-concrete – I don’t use any concrete sounds in my work, but with granular and micro-sampling techniques, I am recreating certain quality that we relate to concrete sounds. Radio Concert No.2 has couple of different recorded iterations as well as live video-version. This is an excerpt from 30min. video. This work the last piece that I made before leaving my job as head of Radio Belgade’s Electronic Studio.
