无论是新手还是专家,是专业音乐人还是业余爱好者,无论在哪个年龄段——Dada Machines让所有人都能够尽情探索新鲜的音乐创作方式!

Dada Machines是一个扎根于柏林和慕尼黑的音乐技术项目。创造者们开发了一套能把日常物件转变为“乐器”的工具组,操作简单,并且能够随心所欲地延展。

这套自动化的工具组实际上是一个将音乐数字信号转化为物理运动的连接装置,每套装置包含一个连接盒以及与之相连的多达12个12V小引擎。它的操作方式很简单:第一步,将MIDI设备(如笔记本电脑、iPad、键盘或者音序器)接入连接盒;第二步,演奏你的MIDI设备,MIDI信号通过连接盒触发引擎运动;第三步,通过调整这些小引擎的安置方式和数量,你可以利用它们来震动、敲击、触碰和移动各类物件。

简而言之,每当你在MIDI设备上演奏一个音符,通过这套装置相连的物件都会随之律动。这也就意味着,所有物件都可以变成你的“乐器”——它们会在你的操控之下发出各种意想不到的声音,彻底打破了普通乐器的局限,你可以尽情发挥你的奇思妙想!除此之外,你还可以将多组Dada Machines相互连接,将乐趣无限延展。

在此次工作坊,Dada Machines的创造者Johannes Elias Lohbihler将会介绍这个充满无限可能的项目,谈谈因它而发生的趣事;来自柏林的电子音乐家Heimer将会一边讲解,一边用Dada Machines进行演奏;我们还会邀请你现场体验Dada Machines,用它来创造只属于你的独特声音!

Heimer

Heimer是一位柏林的电子音乐人、制作人与视觉艺术家。他同时涉足于嘻哈、电子与流行乐等领域,在作品中融入了无数不同的风格,如Grime[1]、Skweee[2]、Bass[3]、Footwork[4]、爵士乐与灵魂乐等。声音在他的解构和重组之下,构筑成一个万花筒般的奇妙世界,在欢愉而错综的作曲和大胆而丰富的旋律之间冲撞出精致的平衡。成长于东柏林的他,在自学修理、改装和自制音乐设备的过程中,逐渐发现了自己对电子乐和声音探索的热爱。他的个人和合作作品发表于!K7、Karaoke Kalk等厂牌,近期在Tomlab旗下发行了首张个人全长黑胶《Teilzeit Swag》以及包含4首歌的迷你专辑《Beverly the Hill》。

 

[1] Grime:一种在千禧年早期发源于东伦敦的音乐类型,由英国早期电子乐发展而来,并融合了牙买加舞厅音乐、Ragga和嘻哈。该风格以急促的切分碎拍加上激烈或起伏不定的电子乐为主要特点,说唱也是该风格一个重要的组成元素。

[2] Skweee:一种源于瑞典和芬兰的音乐风格,以简单的合成器/Chiptune(芯片音乐)为主调,辅以放克、节奏布鲁斯或类似灵魂乐的低音线,总体呈现出直接而节奏感十足的声音。

[3] Bass:泛指在21世纪00年代中期出现的一种电子舞曲,其风格受到各类英国电子乐风格的影响,如Grime、House、Drum & Bass等。

[4] Footwork:一种起源于80年代芝加哥的音乐与街舞的流派,通常混合大量鼓花、通鼓、军鼓与拍掌声。


Dada Machines is a Berlin and Munich based music technology project. The aim of Dada Machines is to enable novices and experts, musicians and non-musicians of all ages to explore novel ways of creating and making music. In order to do so, they invented toolkits that can turn everyday objects into musical devices, which are very simple to control and can be extended however you like.

The automat toolkit by Dada Machines is a midi-to-physical movement connection device. You are supplied with a connection box and up to a dozen small 12V engines per box. The engines can be triggered via midi and create a movement. You can adjust and expand the engines to shake, hit, touch, and move objects. This way you can create sounds that expand beyond the borders of usual instruments and suit your creativity. Multiple boxes can be linked for unlimited fun. In short: You play a note on your favorite midi device (laptop, iPad, keyboard, sequencer) and things starts moving to your rhythm.

In this workshop, Johannes Elias Lohbihler, the creator of Dada Machines, will introduce this limitless project and tell us about its stories; electronic musician Heimer will introduce his collaboration with Dada Machines' toolkit in his live-set; we will also invite you to play, to create your own unique sound!

Heimer

Heimer is a Berlin based electronic musician, producer and visual artist. With equal footing in hip-hop, electronic and pop, his work bridges countless genres like grime[1], skweee[2], bass[3], footwork[4], jazz & soul. Sounds collide and blend into a distinctive kaleidoscope, striking a balance between joyful, intricate compositions and bold, colorful melodies. Born and grown in East Berlin, Heimer taught himself how to fix, customize and create home-made and found musical equipment, and in doing so, discovered his passion and fascination for electronic music and sonic exploration. Heimer released music and collaborations on !K7, Karaoke Kalk and recently debut his full-length solo LP “Teilzeit Swag”, alongside a 4-track EP “Beverly the Hill” on Tomlab.

 

[1] Grime:  A genre of music that emerged in East London in the early 2000s. It developed out of earlier UK electronic music styles, and also draws influence from Jamaican dancehall, ragga and hip hop. The style is typified by rapid, syncopated breakbeats, and often features an aggressive or jagged electronic sound. Rapping is also a significant element of the style.

[2] Skweee: A musical style with origin in Sweden and Finland. Skweee combines simple synth/chiptune leads and basslines with funk, R&B or soul-like rhythms, overall rendering a stripped-down funky sound.

[3] Bass: An umbrella term that refers broadly to electronic dance music that emerged in the mid-2000s under the influence of breakbeats, dubstep, grime, UK garage, 2-step, drum & bass, wonky, house and other electronic styles centered in the United Kingdom.

[4] Footwork: A genre of related music and street dance that originated in Chicago during the 1980s, featuring extensive use of drum fills, tom drums, handclaps and snares.
