Thomas Park- Peak Audio [treetrunk 408]

In late May of 2019, Thomas Park took his Generative Radio streams further technologically, adding lots of new elements, such as vocoder samples, Morse Code, and streams of spoken word and other sounds automatically collected from The Internet Archive. The results were rich, captivating, often unexpected. Here are some examples of that audio.

Thomas Park with Rebekkah Hilgraves- Heliades: The Helios Cycle [treetrunk 403]

These are pieces recorded live using a generative environment that parallels “The Heliades”, an online stream. “The Heliades” uses, in part, the voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves to provide a different song at different times of day. Early Morning, Mid-Morning, Late Morning, Early Afternoon, Early Evening and Late Evening each have their own compositions, which feature their own typical progressions. These compositions are also represented in “The Helios Cycle”, except in this case, 12 vocal layers are featured, and Thomas Park’s voice does not play a role.

Thomas Park- Loopworks 1 [treetrunk 401]

In 2017, Thomas Park, known as mystified, Mister Vapor, Grid Resistor, Model 201 and AutoCad, retired from creating pre-recorded music. Over the next two years, Thomas focused on archiving his projects– then on creating live looping performances and alternative forms of composition such as using generative environments. As Treetrunk Records began as a netlabel to showcase fractal music in 2005, Thomas felt it was fitting that the netlabel re-open its doors in 2019, to bring an audience to music that is generatively composed. “Loopworks 1” was composed in such an environment. Thomas used his python code, “The Reanimator”, to randomly combine several series of loops. He used his “Archimedes Video Mixer” to mix random clips of .mp4s, in order to assemble the video for the piece.

Thomas hopes you enjoy “Loopworks 1”, as well as other works hopefully to follow.
