Tim Exile (Warp Records) is to host a pioneering interactive online jam session, this Thursday 9th December at 7pm. He is giving fans the chance to collaborate with him live via the internet using Soundcloud’s new capture and share feature.
Having released three studio albums on respected labels Warp and Planet Mu and collaborating with artists such as Imogen Heap and Micachu, Tim is also famed for his rather different approach to performing live. He uses software he has created himself to make layers upon layers of algorithms allowing him to manipulate anything and everything in real time. Songs are improvised and morphed until they have been taken to an entirely new and exciting plain. Now Tim wants to take his own performance and make it interactive.
“Imagine if music was a thing we did together, not just a recording you bought. That’s where I’m at. You, me. It’s gonna happen.”
Tim has teamed up with SoundCloud, the audio platform that enables everybody to upload, promote and share the sounds they create across the web, to enable his fans to upload sounds to him via their iphones, and then hear them mixed and manipulated live by Tim over the web.
This jam will highlight the launch of SoundCloud’s upgraded iphone app, which allows users to easily record sounds on their phone using a simple record button and upload them to their account online, or send to other users. A whopping two million people use SoundCloud to hold their recorded music.
