An evening of beautiful experiments in music from humans and computers
as part of the knowledge futures conference.  Enjoy microfolk, brainjazz,
robotic theramin cabaret and livecoding.

Time: 7pm - 10pm, Friday 16th October 2009
Place: Goldsmiths Great Hall, New Cross, London

Advance tickets available, £10 each (£5 concessions).



Leafcutter John's experimental approach to music, including handmade
synthesis algorithms, contact microphones and handmade interfaces like
his "electric breasts" beloved him to a crowd more used to industrial
techno through his chaotic Planet Mu releases. More recently though
his love of folk music has shown in his recorded work, his 2006 album
finding his guitar and his voice between electronic forests. It's not
clear what he's going to do for Transfer, but it'll be chosen from one
of the broadest sonic pallets in London.

Finn Peters (sax / flute / fx), Matthew Yee-king (SuperCollider), Oren
Marshall (tuba / fx) and Tom Skinner (drums / synths / fx) will play
prototypical versions of tracks from the forthcoming 'Music of the
Mind' album which features music generated, modulated and inspired by
the activity of the brain. As usual, you can also expect some noisy,
wild card improvisations.

+ SLUB +

Slub are three live coders who have made software to make music to
drink beer to for the last nine years. Slub sound emerges from slub
software; melodic and chordal studies, generative experiments and beat
processes. Process-based sonic improvisations; live generative music
using hand crafted and live coded apps, scripts, l-systems, daisy
chains and traffic simulations in networked synchrony. With roots in
UK electronica and tech culture, slub build their own software
environments for creating music in realtime. Only custom composition
and DSP software is used. Everything you hear is formed by human
