TMS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TMS is an experimental noise project by Berlin-based artists Malte Steiner (DE) and Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen (DK). The format is improvisational sound pieces and concerts built out of Steiner and Madsen's sonic interactions, where noise-scapes and complex structures emerge from intense layering of various in- and outputs. The physical interaction with materials has an additional focus and thus to create a more performative and visual sound experience. TMS use primarily various pedals, self-built controllers and Pure Data to create their sounds. Each chosen element is very important for the whole, where the combination of these play a vital role in the compositions. The inputs can be analogue as well as digital; modulated, transformed and distorted.

movement(al) distortions(s) at Spektrum, Berlin

performance / concertPosted by Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen Sat, September 10, 2016 05:29:39
The piece movement(al) distortion(s) was performed on September 10 at
SPEKTRUM | art science community
Bürknerstraße 12 12047 Berlin

movement(al) distortion(s) is an experimental noise-industrial performance, where performative inputs of objects and body(triggered) sounds will be transformed and distorted through the use of analogue electronic manipulation. The feed-ins will happen live and run through various pedals and other self-created DIY manipulators that transform these into a dynamic noise-scape. Translating and modifying movement and interaction with body and objects into sound.

The sources and inputs come from the interaction of the two performers, each bringing physical elements into the shared composition. Sounds from objects and the interaction between body, surfaces and the architectural structures of the space feed into the piece through the use of piezos. Both performers will live manipulate their own generated sounds into an interwoven structure of dynamic noise patterns.



Malte Steiner from TMS opened the night with an Electronengehirn set:

In the piece Meta-instrument [Stochastic Satz #1-3], Elektronengehirn fusions the world of analog modular sound-synthesis with that of software, combining both means of aesthetics to one composition with a focus on the advantages and as well as the limits of each system. The expressiveness of the analog hardware synthesis is communicating with the complex control- and random patterns of software, here created with Pure Data.

Meta-instrument [Stochastic Satz #1-3] is a part of Steiner's research in what he terms a meta-instrument. This concept is grounded in a wish to move beyond traditional means and methods, and create a more systematic approach to audio creation.

Malte Steiner began the project Elektronengehirn in 1996, where it started as a side project to his industrial outfit Notstandskomitee, but it soon developed to take on a more experimental identity of its own. The main features of Steiner's electro-acoustic compositions are that they are primarily done with software with custom made applications, where he uses Max / MSP, Pure Data and Csound. Steiner's sound projects are additionally closely related to his practice as a media artist, where he creates systems, which control and feeds the sound in real time.

TMS performance at Grüntaler9 16.4.2015 as a part of Body Interfaces: A Processual Scripting

performance / concertPosted by Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen Thu, June 09, 2016 23:51:23
TMS did a performance as a part of Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen's performative installation Body Interfaces: A Processual Scripting at Grüntaler9 in Berlin.

The performance combined analogue sounds and electronic manipulations, with reference to the Protokoll series created in Iceland in 2015.







Audioblast Stream Festival // APO-33 // live at Kommunal Kunst og Teknik (Cph, DK), February 26/27/28, 2016

performance / concertPosted by Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen Thu, June 09, 2016 23:44:13
5-HT

For the Audioblast online audio festival TMS will compose a piece based on the structural qualities of the neurotransmitter serotonin. These dynamics will be improvised and performed live in a dynamic and counterbalanced noise act that deals with both the balances as well as the imbalances caused by disruption of this unit in the brain. The piece is a translation of a physiological entity into a mixed analogue and digital composition, transmitted via the digital system of the live-stream and thus inserted into the online neuro-system of the Internet.

The audio performance is created specifically for the call of the Audioblast festival and as described in the concept, it is based on the structure of the neorotransmitter serotonin and thus a translation of a physiological entity into a improvised composition, transmitted via the digital system of the live-stream and inserted into the online neuro-system of the Internet.

Duration of performance: 30 minutes

The piece was performed for a live audience at Kommunal Kunst og Teknik, Blågårdsgade in Copenhagen (DK) as well as streamed online and to a quadrophonic set-up at APO-33 in Nantes (FR)

Auto-dada, Cities and Memory Dada anniversary

noisePosted by Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen Thu, June 09, 2016 23:33:55
TMS created the sound piece auto-dada for the Cities and Memory Dada anniversary, released on February 5. 2016. The piece applied Dada techniques on a field recording created in Seydisfjordur, Iceland in 2015:

"The remade piece auto-dada is created as an automated system that randomly applies cut up technique and montage to the original field recording. The piece is based on a randomness principle and thus avoids the control of its author, but succumbs to a purely automated process of chance. The system is created in Pure Data, which executes the applied methods on the original sound file."

Protokoll series, Skalar Artist Residency, Seyðisfjörður (IS)

Protokoll is a series of sound experiments created and performed in November 2015 during the artist residency Skalar in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland. The pieces were created solely with found objects and recorded in one take, only amplified by the echo of the space.
