Viral Sonology 03


I had the pleasure of participating in Hugo Paquete’s Viral Sonology 03.
This album experiment started as a call from the director of the of Institute of viral sonology Hugo Paquete. The music explores the potential of the computer as an automatic machine to generate compositional material and aesthetics content base on stochastic probabilities.

Connecting and collecting different sound material from different collaborators and without a previous selection construct a social and artistic possibility to generate aesthetic content base in the power of computer algorithmic to compose in a randomatic aesthetic.

60 seconds files by 6 composers were used to generate 12, 6 minute compositions.
Artists: Tony Stirner, Charles Shriner, Didier Tallec, Giorgio Cipolletta, Sue69 and Ruben Costa.
Composer: The computer
Organization: Institute of viral sonology
Director and concept: Hugo Paquete
Year: 2012 modisti netlabel

Before forming Xeroid Entity with Greg Waltzer, Howard Moscovitz and Bill Fox were already playing together under the name Subspace since 2002. In 2010, they realized that they had made a resurgence as a duo and became Twyndyllyngs, performing weekly internet broadcasts (Chez Mosc) on electro-music radio. Also, Greg had moved away to Asheville, NC.
They use guitar, lap steel guitar, Nord Modular synthesizers, Theremin, and iPads. Bill and Howard have very broad musical interests ranging from Claudio Monteverdi to Charles Shriner. They call their music Electronic Chamber Music. It is intended to be performed live in relatively small spaces.
Howard is the founder of electro-music.com. Bill is the producer of several FM radio programs including Galactic Travels on WDIY in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. They both travel widely performing electro-music and frequently collaborate with other musicians.

Surrealestate is a musical experience that utilizes visual and sonic textures reminiscent of the Old Berlin style of electronic synth music. Surrealestate was formed five years ago with original members Kelly Sheets, Bunny Sheets, and Randy Schwartz. After Randy’s departure, long time friend and associate Jim Curry has contributed his musical creativity to Surrealestate. Surrealestate evolved from Kelly and Bunny’s collective band experiences which included Gravity Hill and Interstellar Electric Gnomes. Jim Curry has been involved in multiple genres and played with bands with tastes ranging from Grateful Dead, Psychodellia, Blues, and Bluegrass. Former band member, Randy Schwartz, contributed his experiences from Tombstone Valentine and added his own unique style through synths, delays, and violin.

Currently Surrealestate enjoys playing Old School Berlin using restored Moog vintage synths and other vintage equipment collected over the years. When required, styles include upbeat techno, psychill, ambient, and trance. Lighting and stage props are occasionally utilized to add to the experience.
