Primus Luta Mix and Words

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Check the mix above, nice journey in breaks. The man behind it, Primus Luta, has also wrote part one of a three-part piece over here¬†on Sounding Out, which explores the language of performance, paying particular attention to electronic music and jazz. Now, we’ve all had that debate at some stage or other on the performer who pushes a space bar occassionally versus the musicians making music and occassional mistakes. We might never reach consensus on the merits of each, as Primus Luta quite rightly points out there are too many variables, and perhaps we need to move towards a re-work of the language we use in the first place to describe performance.

I’m really looking forward to reading the next two parts, hopefully we’ll see more overlaps with Christopher Small’s ‘musicking’ theory as well. In the meantime, make a cup of something nice, check the mix and have a read of his related 2009 article for Create Digital Music. Keep an eye on more Primus Luta work over here. Oh, and he also does a regular show for the mighty Rhythm Incursions here. Busy man!
