kim cascone

kim cascone has a long history involving electronic music:
in 1973-76 he studied electronic music at the berklee college of music in boston massachusetts,
1983 he started an ambient industrial project pgr,
and in 1986 he founded the record label silent records that in the mid 90’s became one of the best known us labels in ambient techno …
in 1993 he branched out from his ambient industrial work with pgr into the ambient techno genre with his project the heavenly music corporation…
after selling silent records in 1996 he decided to satisfy his interest in internet audio and started to work for thomas dolby’s company headspace as a sound designer and composer.
rekindling an old flame for computer programming while being immersed in computer and net technology at headspace he was introduced to csound, a sound synthesis programming language that makes use of many modern synthesis techniques. becoming infatuated with the sheer power of this language, kim started to work on some material that earned him an invitation to contribute an article and a piece of music for a book being written on csound for mit press. the piece that was composed for the book was called »blue cube[ ]« and also became the title of his cd for raster/noton.
