microsound future - pop
One artist you might look into is Atom. His latest stuff, Erik
Satin, DOS Tracks, Los Samplers, Geeez'n'Gosh, all this stuff is
integrating pop elements into microsound structures. Actually
go ahead and add to the list the superb Naturalist and
Schnittstelle. All have singing except DOS Tracks and the
Schnitts. The main release to point to from him, though, would
be Pop Artificielle, in which he translates pop hits from
Prince, James Brown, John Lennon, David Bowie, Donovan, along
with a few others, into stuttering technological delights.
P.A. is not exclusively microsound, but pretty much everything
Atom has released in the past couple of years contains little
passages of computers freaking out (er, microsounding?).
I know he has a Kyma system in his rig, many of his sound effects
are quite startling and unique... and FUN! E-Z-listening jazz,
Latin folk, house and techno, these influences all show up at some
point. Great entertaining stuff.
