Musician

Michael Edwards

Born:

soprano and tenor saxophones, laptop and MIDI wind controller

An early taste for heavy metal led through Beethoven to the weightier end of modern composition (with oboe playing along the way). Over-exposure to computer music whilst living in California and Paris led to temporary breadwinning as a software engineer but more importantly the skills to develop a range of computer music techniques from real-time digital instruments to self-contained algorithmic composition environments. Michael lives in Edinburgh and is active as a composer and performer playing saxophones, laptop, and MIDI wind controller.

Lapslap: Granita

Read "Granita" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Si può ragionare di improvvisazione in modo niente affatto dissimile da quello in cui si ragiona di composizione. Non esiste e non deve esistere una verità assoluta, un unico modus operandi, un dogma da seguire alla lettera. Così vi è chi approccia all'improvvisazione come ad una composizione estemporanea, che a questa deve assomigliare per forma e ...

Lapslap: Zuppa inglese

Read "Zuppa inglese" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Inserito Zuppa inglese nel lettore uno pensa di aver sbagliato stanza: i Lapslap rappresentano uno sbriciolamento sonoro totale! E la prima tentazione è quella di cambiare! La prima traccia è il solo suono di un'ocarina distorto da un laptop, seguito da una seconda di sola distorsione e frantumazione sonora. Ma superato lo scoglio delle prime due ...
