Psychic Liberation: 

"The tracks were recorded using synthesis techniques taken from a few different sources and usually realized with the SuperCollider's suite for sound generation, with the exception of "Keep It Locked", recorded with software from the MIMIC platform. this CD (as I did with the recordings of many others in order to create this work); Maryanne Amacher's technique of producing DPOAEs (distorted product otoacoustic emissions), Trevor Wishart's conception of the “waveset” and “waveset transformation” that were further explained by Curtis Roads along with Road's “pulsar synthesis” are featured on several tracks. Machine learning processes developed at Google that manifested in their Magenta software were also used. The MIMIC team's work in synthesis with machine learning, with special help from Mick Grierson, made this music possible. Concepts conceived around generative music compositions from Roger T. Dean, Jonathan McCormack, and George Lewis were built upon to create several of the tracks.”

The luminous one, “Diamond Ben” Kudler, presents a pairing of challenging computer music on compact disc and a book of sentimentally charged photography for Psychic Liberation's first print publication: “My Summer Vacation”. artist's eventful summer and lingers into early fall of 2021. Kudler pairs each photograph on the release with an audio recording, offering a contextual lead for the listener-cum-viewer. Kudler uses this equality of formats to provide a mildly different image and sound consumption experience from those constantly emanating from digital devices. The photos are accessible, pedestrian, usually only alluding to the difficulty of that particular summer by its' pairing with the sound design on the CD.

Kudler's work as a performer and a computer music historian (see “Computer Music For Dorks” via the Anomia Soundcloud), has developed over a decade and is uniquely interpersonal and idiosyncratic, always generous and open. “My Summer Vacation” acts as another wildly personal chapter to Kudler's growing sonic and visual vocabulary.
