Forum For Electro-Acoustic Research Paper

FFEAR (Forum for Electro-Acoustic Research) is an improvising quartet co-led by Chris Washburne and Ole Mathisen, and is Washburne’s most adventurous project to date.  FFEAR’s objective is to explore new sonic possibilities by adopting contemporary classical compositional techniques into an improvisational setting. Conventional uses of meter, tonality, and harmony are replaced with multiple meters, microtonality, and open templates of form to create a fresh approach to improvised music. FFEAR delights in blending and blurring the divide between jazz and contemporary classical music and producing a truly original voice and approach to improvised music.

FFEAR performed in New York on October 2010 on the stage at Miller Theater on the campus of Columbia University.  Two large works for the ensemble were premiered on that concert, Mirage, an adventurous new work by Ole Mathisenthat plays with meter, tempo, and tonality in remarkably innovative ways (funded by a generous CMA new jazz works grant), and Chris Washburne arranged and interpreted the musical scores of artist Frederick Sommer for the first time in a jazz setting. You can view this engaging performance on YouTube.

The concert was recorded and later aired on NPR’s JazzSet, hosted by Dee Dee Bridgewater. Check the live concert and interviews with the band members at the JazzSet website.

FFEAR is:

  • Ole Mathisen – saxophones and clarinet
  • Chris Washburne – trombone and tuba
  • Per Mathisen – bass
  • Tony Moreno – drums
CF3Looks and sounds tasty.peripatitisok this sounds very promising...REwirePeter brought over the M41 Steiner and his M12 Mark II a few months ago and I was amazed. The Steiner is not Synthacon like at all but completely unique and FMs great and is both smooth and crunchy too.

DanradiokoalaThis is pretty great. Nice to see more designs from Steiner.

Anyway, being on the verge of buying a101-1, I'd like to hear how you'd rate one versus another. I expect doepfer should pair well (better?) with a 258 I have.theewiperwoa, it sounds GOODMatosI'm excited. I have a bunch of plan b that I really love. This should pair well with it.CF3Seems the EAR Facebook page has been updated with some info:

"Ladies and Gents,
Electro-Acoustic Research kinda floated away like a silent fart these last couple of months. I had a lot of unexpected work to do with the family estate, and now it's completed. I made a promise to repay everyone and I've done that, and another to get back to what it was I used to do, what I like to think I do best and I intend to fulfill both promises.
I'm going to try to hook up with Cyrus in the next couple of hours to pick up the units he's had since NAMM. I need to float in one fix to the M41 and M12 dual which Ive already done on one set onto this second, just to verify it wasn't a quirk that worked once. After that and fixes willing, I am giving the green light to Mr. Holley to begin the process of manufacturing.
I really hope you like what Nyle Steiner and I came up with on the M41 and the changes to the new dual M12. Won't ever know until I get some in your hands and that's what I intend to do, very shortly. Thanks for everything"

Really hope these filters, and other new EAR/Plan B modules see the light of day.
CF3Yearly bump....

Still not out, but allegedly in production now.

And it's seems a new site is in the works

Nope. Closed that immediately.suthnearGreat sounding and interesting filter. The manual *really* needs a good proof read, thoughDogmaModel 16 •Spectral Multiplexer - looks very interesting....24vca/filter pairs, spectrum sweeping....HRTLuuuh thats yumm! Tim Stinchcombe

It amazes me that so many people who develop websites don't realise just how annoying this is to some people, and that as a direct consequence they will lose valuable traffic...sempervirentThe website is definitely like something circa 1998, but it's good that Plan B / EAR is back in the game. By the time I got into Eurorack they had effectively disappeared. Will be cool to check out the Heisenberg Generator, Spectral Multiplexer, and others.Plan BHey guys. thanks for the interest.

Want to put this out there: One it's great to be back and thanks for your interest. This is the most important message i need to get to you all right now, but let me give you an update:

I have received word from Darkplace that these units began shipping to dealers on the 10th of June. I've just got notice today that my two units have shipped USPS priority this morning....right now i don't even have one lol as I shipped my one unit to Nyle for his participation in blessing the first article off the Darkplace assembly line. Once it arrives I will be doing a more in depth video review of the M41 - but in the meantime you have the excellent run through by Thighpaulsandra.

This thing is a monster. I know the term "Bad hair day Godzilla" is hypey - i get that but seriously - it retains all the qualities of the Steiner Synthasystem version, but goes places that it, and many other filters cannot. We're talking Clapton with a cry baby. Our two distortion modes (IFM Sync, Hyper Q) really put things over the top.

As far as the site...what can i tell you, 1998 was a great year lol. It's just standard Wordpress, exactly like Buchla Musical Instruments, and Malekko, and Darkplace, and (fill in 99% of all synth company sites here) use. I wanted to keep it simple and present the info clearly for you all to get an basic idea of what Im doing now.

There WAS a button on the bottom of the Home page as of yesterday that turned the music off - somehow it disappeared overnight and I've written the Bluehost design team on wtf happened. Grant me some patience and that will be addressed. As far as the manual, I used the spellcheck available on the program i authored it on, I'll look it over again - thanks for the input.

Other than that - i am here for any questions you have - let er rip and thanks again!Dogma

Haha, well played! Mainly I was saying that circa 1998, it was common practice to put website text into an image to maintain a desired typographical treatment, and that's how some pages on the EAR site are made.

Doing that is less common these days because 1) you can now embed almost any typeface into your website and 2) search engines can't read text in images, so Google doesn't pick up any of the text on your About page and other pages, which negatively affects your search engine visibility for certain keywords.

Anyway, that stuff is less exciting than new modules but I thought I'd mention it.
