MODULISME & MODULAR-STATION are working very close together in a strong partnership.
Modulisme is a platform supporting leftfield MODULAR SYNTHESIS. A radio program, magazine, and above all label-like offering music for you to listen to… Composers recording a 1 hour session.
Philippe Petit started MODULISME in the Summer of 2019, as a logical continuation of his prestigious label BiP_HOp which from 2000 to 2010 advocated left field Electronica, and sees this new stage as the very first platform dedicated to the promotion of modular synthesis, offering an informative approach, interviews, resources on the subject… And above all hours of original music.
Modulisme acts as a label offering exclusive sessions of one hour in order to highlight each of the composers.
It is also a radio show broadcast via Resonance FM in London; CAMP Radio in the rest of England; Panik (Brussels) + Jet FM (Nantes) + Ego des Garrigues (Montpellier) and Campus Grenoble + Modular-Station. For us, he assembled-summarized a kind of inventory since by going to the platform you will find more than 40 hours. new music …
Jono Podmore has been a musician for over 40 years! Started in bands and orchestras as a kid before moving to London to study Electronic Music. Then from playing in bands ended up gravitating to production, engineering, programming and string arrangements in the 80’s/90’s and then started releasing his own material under the name Kumo. In ’97 he went to live in France to work with Irmin Schmidt on film scores, his opera Gormenghast, the Can archive and new material.
Jono was appointed Professor of the Practice of Popular Music at the Musikhochschule in Cologne in 2005 where he still runs the MA Production course. After moving back to London he set up Metamono; a purely analogue, modular, electronic band… After the death of drummer Jaki Liebezeit in 2017 he worked with his fellow drummers, collaborators and family to write and edit a book based around his rhythm theory in the context of his life’s work. “Jaki Liebezeit, The Life, Theory and Practice of a Master Drummer”.
Jono is writing the score for a feature film of “The Giaour”, a retelling of Byron’s epic poem with some very exciting musical collaborations. Recently he released “Hallraum” with Swantje Lichtenstein on seminal cassette label Tapeworm, and appeared on “New Clockwork Music”, a double vinyl set of music inspired by Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.
