  1. New #podcast/mix: PROBES #16.2. Auxiliaries. Chris Cutler wonders how far you can go with banjos, mandolins, balalaikas, jew’s harps and ensembles of folk instruments. And it’s pretty far. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes16-2-chris-cutler/capsula Playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20160129/Probes16_2_eng.0.pdf The PROBES Auxiliaries collect materials related to each episode that try to give a broader – and more immediate – impression of the field. They are a scan, not a deep listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might uncover and, for that reason, most are edited snapshots of longer pieces. We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not privilege so-called serious over so-called popular genres. In this new auxiliary, we wonder how far you can go with banjos, mandolins, balalaikas, jew’s harps and ensembles of folk instruments. And it’s pretty far. And here you can find the complete series of PROBES! Enjoy!
  2. New podcast: PROBES #15, on experimental uses of the more intractable folk instruments. Curated by Chris Cutler Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes-15-1-chris-cutler/capsula In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. In PROBES #15 we look at experimental uses of the more intractable folk instruments: bagpipes, hurdy gurdy and harmonica. Is nothing sacred?

  16. New podcast: PROBES #6, curated by Chris Cutler There's no end of things that have been laid on, tied to, screwed into or otherwise attached to alter the sound of conventional instruments. This sixth programme draws a map and explores some of the outer reaches of string and wind preparations.

A tidal wave of probes and experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. This sixth programme continues to explore probes into pitch through the preparation and modification of conventional instruments – looking at the many tapings, wrappings, clampings, clippings, attachments and impairments applied across the family of strings, before moving on to the less familiar territory of prepared winds. Some people get up to some pretty strange behaviour in the pursuit of unusual sounds. You can find the complete series here: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag

  18. New pocast: PROBES #5, curated by Chris Cutler This fifth programme sets the scene for a wide range of very different approaches to the exploration of timbre and looks at ways of modifying or preparing the traditional piano.
