electro-music.com now has Regularly Scheduled Radio Programs!

Check Out the Schedule.

You dont have to wait for the next electro-music.com streaming event to have some fun. Several of us have been streaming music informally from computer to computer on the weekends. Just come into the chatroom anytime...people are usually streaming off and on all weekend long from Friday night to Sunday night.

Depending on your computer, you can stream to several people, play as long as you want, and have fun playing in an informal environment. There is much more freedom available to the player in this scenario. Whether you want to perform a 2 hour ambient piece, 30 minutes of noise, or just wanted to show off some new patches...come on in and experiment with us.

It's also a great way to practice your streaming as well...getting better familiarity with the software makes things much easier for streaming events in the future, without the stress on you and the engineers trying to figure out problems in time for a performance. :bangdesk:
It's hard enough to just play (...more...)

Jack Tamul Recordings Available Here

We are very grateful to electronic music composer Jack Tamul for making available two of his recordings, "Electro/Acoustic" and "CURA", on our on-line store. Jack is donating the proceeds from the sale of these products to help electro-music.com get "on the air".

"Electro/Acoustic", Jack's 1980 recording for Spectrum Records, is a classic electronic music release; it's a gem. These 12" LPs are virgin vinyl, never been played, and individually signed by the artist. They are from Jack's archival stock.

This fabulous recording includes both electronic sounds and choruses of real human singers, not sampled voices too often heard today. This is seminal space music. Also, there is great sound/text music, and vintage looping tracks as well. Listening to this makes you realize in retrospect that Jack was a pioneer. Even the liner notes by the legendary electronic music composer William Hoskins are excellent. You don't find this kind of thoughful analysis on todays recordings.

Here's what Keyboard Magazine said in an April, 1982 review:

The most consistently successful [of contemporary electronic artists] is Jack Tamul, whose Electro/Acoustics (Spectrum Records [Harriman, NY 10926], SR-134) belongs basically in the contemporary classical camp. The predominant sonority on this album is a thick wash of sustained tones, sometimes rising and falling and sometimes augmented by a choir. Clearly, Tamul isn't trying to be engaging, but his results are consistent and well thought-out.

Downbeat Magazine more insightfully had this to say in their September, 1982 issue:

Jack Tamul is among the new artists with "legitimate" credentials trying to move beyond this [contempory music] sterility to create personal visions. Electro/Acoustic merges the natural sounds of a choral group or accordion with synthesizers and tape manipulation techniques. By blurring the distinction between these sounds, Tamul moves his music to a spiritual level past theoretical considerations. For instance, Genesis is a textural blend of droning electronics and a tape-treated chorus. The effect formed is of being in the middle of a Buddhist chant as synthesized whips of wind create a movement and ascend towards an infinity of time. The all-electronic Fantasia descends like sirens from the sky, gradually coalescing around an organ cycle reminiscent of Terry Riley's A Rainbow In Curved Air.

We know that Jack is working with a contemporary record label to re-release this recording as a CD. When that happens, these vintage records will immediately increase in value.

"CURA", the second offering, is a professionally manufactured CD from JTM Studios in 1997.

"CURA" is a composition dedicated to the healing of the soul. The idea of soul centered music goes back to the earliest days of human civilization where it was an inseparable part of all religious and pagan ceremonies. In Greek mythology music was ascribed to a divine origin and they named the creators gods, such as Apollo, Orpheus, and Amphion. Music during that time was thought to have magical powers: it could heal sickness, purify the body and mind, and work miracles in the realm of nature. Similar powers are attributed to music in the Old Testament: the stories of David curing Saul's madness by playing the harp, or the sounding of the trumpets that toppled the walls of Jericho. Throughout our entire history, music has been used to put our soul into harmony with our lives.

"CURA" is designed from a melodic curve that is used in a great majority of Gregorian Chant phrases. The melodic curve has the form of an arch; it begins low, rises to a higher pitch then descends at the end of the phrase. This simple and natural design is worked out in many varied combinations: for example some arches will extend over many smaller arches. The accumulation and repetition of the asymmetrical arches produces flowing textures that are constantly changing in rhythm and harmonic color. The mood that it creates is one of peace and tranquility.

We thank Jack for making these wonderful products available to our electro-music.com family
