Lecture: Robert Rich (Tokyo, 2014)

502440133 200x150

This Bay Area ambient pioneer began building his own synthesizer at the age of 13 – around the same time he became interested in avant-garde and minimal composition. By the time he got to college at Stanford (around 1981), he began organizing “sleep concerts,” playing abstract drones and soundscapes to influence audiences' REM cycles. This lecture covers music as ritual, modular synths, mastering advice, magic, sampling tree frogs, and psytrance raves... among many other things.

Lecture: TOKiMONSTA (Tokyo, 2014)

502440253 200x150

If there’s one thing TOKiMONSTA taught us since she graduated from the 2010 edition of the Academy, it’s that she’s never one to settle. Linking up with the mighty Brainfeeder empire the following year, and signing with the Ultra conglomerate to drop off her previous full-length, her latest effort sees the LA-based producer jumpstart her very own Young Art imprint. In this talk at the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, she goes in-depth about the making of the new album.

Lecture: Holly Herndon (Tokyo, 2014)

502440043 200x150

Whether studying for her PhD at Stanford or spending all night in a Berlin techno party, Holly Herndon is obsessed with the intersection between mind and body and beat and technology. On releases like Movement and the Chorus EP, she tackles her complicated relationship with the internet, the NSA, Max/MSP software, and her own voice; creating a unique brand of cyber-pop that is equally beautiful and frightening, academic and dancefloor-ready.

Lecture: Marley Marl (Tokyo, 2014)

502440035 200x150

Hailing from the galaxy of Queens, Marley Marl revolutionized hip hop when he pioneered the practice of sampling drum sounds and creating his own proto-boom-bap rhythms, yielding gems like MC Shan’s joyfully noisy (and unintentionally beef-inducing) QB anthem “The Bridge.” The sonic architect of Cold Chillin’ Records and the Juice Crew, Mr. Marl was one of rap’s first super-producers, crafting huge hits for Eric B. & Rakim, Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, and LL Cool J, among others. Oh yeah, and his tenure on late, great broadcasting partner Mr. Magic’s Rap Attack radio show on WBLS was immortalized in the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.” Let this legendary “engineer all-star” tell you how he keeps it all in control in this three hour-plus talk at RBMA Tokyo 2014.

Lecture: Ben UFO (Tokyo, 2014)

502440022 200x150

London’s Ben UFO started out on pirate radio station Sub FM in 2007, playing dubstep alongside friends, producers and DJs Pangaea and Pearson Sound. After being sent new music every week, the trio started the now-lauded Hessle Audio label shortly after; joining the dots of the UK underground between house, techno, jungle and drum ‘n’ bass as the global dubstep scene was exploding. Now with his fortnightly show on flagship London radio station Rinse FM, a near-constant touring schedule and an encyloapedic knowledge of underground electronic music, Ben UFO’s reputation for an acute ear and serious record collection is very well earned.
