Disruptive New Instruments at Laboratorie New Music

Eva Kingma Contrabass Flute Coming To Laboratorie New Music in January, 2016
Thanks to a kind and generous donation to Laboratorie New Music, have acquired several new, and disruptively innovative musical instruments.  Last year we announced the acquisition of the Piccolo Saxophone from Benedikt Eppelsheim. (also known as the Soprillo).


Benedikt Eppelsheim Piccolo Saxophone
Thomas Inderbinen's Tricky.  One of LNM's Current Portfolio Instruments

In addition, we announced the acquisition of the Eva Kingma Contrabass Flute.

Even more exciting are discussions about a special new project with Eva...one that will create a new Ultra Sub-Contrabass Flute;  A new instrument which will redefine the lowest spectrum of the instrument. 

More to come...

*Grapheticists are practitioners of Graphetics which is a branch of linguistics concerned with the analysis of the physical properties of shapes used in writing. It is an etic study, meaning that it has an outsider's perspective and is not concerned with any particular writing system. It is contrasted with the related emic field of graphemics, the study of the relation between different shapes in particular writing systems.  Graphetics is analogous to phonetics; graphetics is to the study of writing as phonetics is to the study of spoken language.
As such, it can be divided into two areas, visual graphetics and mechanical graphetics, which are analogous to auditory and articulatory phonetics, respectively. Both printed and handwritten language can be the subject of graphetic study.
The recording:



Every semiotic segment produced by the contemporary composer must meet and match innumerable other semiotic segments in order to form the combinatory frame of the sonic commodity, musico-capital.
Musico-capital puts neuro-psychic energies to work, submitting them to mechanistic speed, compelling cognitive activity to follow the rhythm of networked performance. As a result, the emotional sphere linked with aural comprehension is stressed to its limit. ​
