rolling abstract w/@mumdance b2b on @nts_radio shortly, 12noon GMT 🔨 steam on✌️

tonight in London at ‪@‬corsica.studios ::: VC live set + we're soundtracking an installation of ‪Mike Tyka’s "Dreams of Imaginary People" , which uses a neural net trained on thousands of facial photos to create portraits of people that do not exist. “Many thousands of photographs of faces taken from Flickr are fed to a type of machine-learning program called a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). GANs work by using two neural networks that play an adversarial game: one (the ‘Generator’) tries to generate increasingly convincing output, while a second (the ‘Discriminator’) tries to learn to distinguish real photos from the artificially generated ones. The images you see are thus a result of the rules and internal correlations the neural networks learned from the training images.” full info/tix here ->

pre-ordering now: very honored to have been asked to remix this beautiful shard of Okinawan music history for a new 7” on EM Records. A side is Jun Arasaki and Nine Sheep’s unusual jazz-ensemble arrangement of the traditional Ryukyu min'yō piece “Kajyadhi Fu Bushi”, recorded live for Japanese television in 1977 and existing only on a VHS tape in Jun’s archive. The traditional sanshin ensemble is augmented by woodwinds, piano and a jazz rhythm section - unfolding flowers, abstract harmonic structure and swirling pentatonic beauty. B side is my own remix using this master as source material, dipped in deep-dream electronics.
