Martin Brinkmann

Man, this guy is pretty cool.

He has reaktor patches to download, free music, and tons of stuff for pure data.

Also, he makes his music all in pure data, and it’s really really well done.  I find so often that music made in really math-based programs can lack variety or dynamic of stuff with a more knob-twiddling approach.

I guess part of that is using a controller, or whatever, but I’ve seen a lot of really flat performances by PD (or max)guys.  Martin Brinkmann, however, isn’t lacking like that.  His music uses the full spectrum, and the focus of detail shifts really nicely through out his work.  Hes found a really nice balance between granular ambience of Hecker or Fennesz, crossed with the warm glitchiness of icelandic IDM.

I haven’t looked to hard at his Reaktor ensembles, but I’ve listened to a couple of his albums, and the storage ep won me over right away.  I really recommend checking it out!

hahaha. I'm just a funny guy who sits at home on my computer a lot, and dj's a bit, and makes music sometimes, and tries to teach himself how to use complicated software of all types. I'm a hippy from an island of 800, who grew up without a radio or flush toilet, but who has somehow managed to make his way around the world, and learn the difference between chinos and khakis...
