Schlachtensee is a lake in the south west of Berlin, in the Steglitz-Zehlendorf borough, on the edge of the Grunewald forest. The lake lends its name to the surrounding area and which has been part of Berlin since 1920. While, it is the city’s most easily accessible lake (next door to both S- and U-Bahn stations), it is surprisingly free from hipster culture. Some have proposed that this state is intentional, claiming that the recent summer ban on dogs (the controversial “Hundeverbot”) is an underhanded attempt to curtail hipster-like activites.

The literal definition of a hipster is: “A person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream.” Many consider Berlin to be one of the most hipster-friendly cities in the world, 2nd only to Brooklyn, New York. Schlactensee is sufficiently outside of the city, a 15 km hike from Kreutzberg (the hippest area of Berlin), and, so, is considered one of the rare “outside-of-outside” spaces (geographically, aesthetically and culturally).

Sonically, Schlachtensee hosts the expected lake-area sounds – water, rain, birds, bees and ducks, but also human contributions ranging from hikers using walking sticks and mal-maintained bicycles to the helicopters and trains just out of view.

This collection brings together a modularization of field recordings from the area with compositional form based on local, environmental photos, along with signal processing and synthesis techniques from the ’60s, ’80s and 21st century.

These are the Hipster Modular Schlachtensee Sets.

Jacumba Hot Springs is a census-designated place in the Mountain Empire area of southeastern San Diego County, California with an elevation of 862 meters. The Kumeyaay peoples occupied the Jacumba area prior to European settlement. Then, Ranchers occupied the area in the 19th century and were often in conflict with the Indians. At the turn of the 20th century, the health and relaxation benefits of natural hot springs were commercialized. By 1925 the town had a world class hotel and by the 1930s, Jacumba developed into a top destination. After the new Interstate 8 bypassed Jacumba by two miles, most of the roadside service businesses folded and the community went into economic decline. The Jacumba Hotel closed and was destroyed in an arson fire in 1983 and the ruins stood until 1991. The great public baths closed, the swimming pool was filled in, and the well was capped. The area continues to attract foreign visitors, motorcycle tourists, ravers and hipsters. The 21st century hipster is part of a subculture that values independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, witty banter and modular or computer-generated modular-like synthesis. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind, it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion, polyrhythms and non-just intonations. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to hold jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent’s trust funds.

These are the Hipster Modular Jacumba Sets.

Virtual Tour: A Reduced Carbon Footprint Concert Series. Featuring Mark Dresser, Michael Dessen, Nicole Mitchell, Sarah Weaver, Gerry Hemingway and more.

Mark Dresser / Nicole Mitchell / Myra Melford / Michael Dessen: Virtual Tour: A Reduced Carbon Footprint Concert Series (PFMDVD094)

Jeff Kaiser

In April 2013, a quartet of renowned composer-improvisers—Mark Dresser, Nicole Mitchell, Myra Melford and Michael Dessen—performed an unprecedented “virtual tour” of new music conceived for world-class musicians performing together live in different geographic locations via Internet2. Building on years of prior telematic collaborations and using high-speed bandwidth available only at research and educational institutions, Virtual Tour linked performers and audiences across thousands of miles, using lifelike, uncompressed audio and high definition video to set a new standard for telematic music making. The core quartet, based in San Diego, California, collaborated with a different remote ensemble for each of the three concerts: Jason Robinson, Marty Ehrlich and Bob Weiner in Amherst, Massachusetts; Matthias Ziegler and Gerry Hemingway in Zurich, Switzerland; and Sarah Weaver, Ray Anderson, Jane Ira Bloom, Min Xiao-Fen, and Matt Wilson in Stony Brook, New York. With footage from all three concerts and featuring eleven world premieres designed specifically to explore the unique potentials of this medium, this DVD documents an important step forward in bringing world-class creative music to the telematic stage.
