|The Glimmer Twins do Cannes (with MTV to follow) (27/05/2003 -- tekst: The A.L.)|
The daring duo of Mo & Benoelie, aka The Glimmer Twins, have just returned from Cannes, where they played several storming sets for the Stella Artois Screen Cruise.

|Audiopad: Immaterial Music (20/05/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
Only three small blocks to move on a table. No buttons, no machines, no wires... just some purple lights running over your hands... and your music starts. Yes, it is a fantastic tool to manage samples and loops, probably one of the best aids for the live performers of the coming decades. Who did it? James Patten and Ben Recht, both students (probably graduated now) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the Media Lab Section. The Audiopad is the first immaterial (and real) interface to compose electronic based music. In their words: "Audiopad is an instrument for electronic musical performance that aims to combine the modularity of knob based musical controllers with the expressive character of multidimensional tracking interfaces." ... at this point you have to know that the technology used is based on the Sensetable, another creation in which James Patten was involved. Audiopad is sort of a musical continuity of the Sensetable. "It is a composition and performance instrument for electronic music which tracks the positions of objects on a tabletop surface and converts their motion into music. One can pull sounds from a giant set of samples, juxtapose archived recordings against warm synthetic melodies, cut between drum loops to create new beats, and apply digital processing all at the same time on the same table."
|Alive 2003 vs Electronics (15/05/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)|
The next Alive Festival 2004 is confirmed for the summer in St Vith, with a blend of heavy rock and cosmic electro-techno. This year will be very Techno oriented with Claude Young, Marco Carola, Space DJ'z, Kitbuilders live, and a whole bunch of local artists such as Joost de Lijser, Deg and, most likely, also Psychogene. That, plus of course, the Rock line-up should be loud enough to satisfy the most demanding rock-addicts.
