Inside the box

The inorganic connection

 

 

My d.o.b means I can’t be a digital native, but I have used computers in the day job since the Hollerith-mainframe era and was making music with desktops and laptops from the time when midi first came on the scene. Here are examples of digital or digital-human hybrid stuff, including some that are more or less experimental and/or quite a long way from jazz. HAT Magnificent is the name of the collaboration with Ben Thomas, who is a digital native and has a much more sophisticated grasp of the technicalities and creative possibilities of computer-generated music than I do.
