After some early Computer Music of the 60s and 70s by Jean-Claude Risset and John Chowning, two current releases by David Burraston’s NYZ project are discussed (out on Entr’acte), touching micro tuned synthesis and field recording. A Mini Disc by mysterious Gescom project is played on shuffle, among some new music by the likes of Kassel Jaeger, City, Keith Fullerton Whitman and Teresa Winter. The show is ending with an xcursion into Handclaps, starting from Steve Reich’s Clapping Music followed by Dale Cornish’s recent studies of 909 Claps, Benga’s 808 and Joe’s infamous ‘Claptrap’, from 2010.
