6d696b75474f44

by Federico Reuben

One of Japan’s biggest pop culture idols for over a decade, Hatsune Miku’s synthesised voice and image have been used on hundreds of thousands pop tracks, videos, and franchised products worldwide. Powered by Vocaloid software, she represents the ultimate hyper-idol, a digitally rendered eternal bubblegum teen star. 

6d696b75474f44 is Federico's contribution to New Vocal Solutions (sampler), a collection of tracks by artists working with Miku’s voice and Vocaloid technology in strange and skewed ways. Painstaking programming, circuit bending, and algorithmic repurposing are employed to plunder the uncanny valley and dredge up layers of digital silt; an unexplored rich and mucky underside of pop subculture. 

Miku’s ubiquity and popularity is largely down to the independent, amateur, and open source fan communities that propagate her. As such, squib-box is making New Vocal Solutions (sampler) completely free to download.

A.I.LOVEs2scream

by Owczarek/Reuben

Paulina Owczarek - Alto Saxophone
Federico Reuben - Live coding / electronics


A computer screaming along with a saxophonist in machine-cosmic synchrony. Artificial Intelligence training, learning from human spontaneous invention. The machine becoming expressive, matching heightened states of consciousness, developing a taste for SWEET improvisation. A.I. trains for love, excess, pleasure, spirituality... heading for a brain freeze. 

A.I.LOVEs2scream is an album of improvisations by Paulina Owczarek and Federico Reuben. Recorded in one session on 22 January 2017, this album captures the coming together of two free improvisers with almost opposing methods, who yet manage to seamlessly integrate the organic with the synthetic, the physiological and the mechanical, the real with the virtual, the biological and the artificial.

Abhorrent

by Lash/Reuben/Baracskai

Dominic Lash - double bass
Federico Reuben - laptop
Zlatko Baracskai - synth


The Abhorrent trio joins improvising performers using different techniques and attitudes to yield musical expressiveness aiming at variety and exclusivity. Extended instrumental techniques and in-time composition is at the fingertips of Dominic Lash with his double bass. A laptop running SuperCollider implements interactive compositional machines using synthesis and recordings under supervision of Federico Reuben. Chaos arising from breaking modular synthesiser components is tamed by Zlatko Baracskai highlighting the aesthetic of error. The three together form a peculiar cohesion and unexpectedness traversing musical structures that border on the unknown.
