Electro Acoustic Cafe @ Trauma Festival

Posted on November 13th, 2011

We met this guy, James Brewster, at STPLN here in Malmö during the TRAUMA Powernoise Festival, that was making really nice soundscapes with his coffe-machine and selling coffe at the same time.


He uses piezo-microphones that is taped to the machine at strategic places such as the steam outlet and the drip tray. Then run in to “VST-Host” in his computer where it is processed through various effects.

When we asked him wich coffee sounds the best, he said “Cappuchino!” without a doubt!

Check out his other works:

Modular Tuesday – ::vtol::

Posted on May 3rd, 2011

vtol – or Dmitry Morozov. A Moscow based artist and mad genius.

Over the years he has created some of the most original pieces of musical hardware the internets has ever seen.

The main focus of his work is the “system”, a home-made, digital, modular, lofi synthesizer!

So far he’s built a bunch of noisy synths, sequencers, filters, glitch-effects, samplers, controllers and cv-processors.

It’s patchable internally and between machines and while not built to any standards, it also works together with other modulars.

Also, they are produced in limited numbers, so if you want one for yourself, you can pick one up at vtol.tk
