Improvisations with a Sensor-Sound-Machine
Timlin employs improvisation and non-linear digital sensor systems to create music in which a delicate balance exists between the human and machine. A music at once intuitive and outlandish. Explosive and subdued. Violent and meditative. Timlin has developed an intuitive interaction with his custom made Sensor-Sound-Machine maintaining a subtle balance between order and chaos. His music happens in real-time, often surprising the artist as well as the audience. His performances are effectively a dialog between man and machine.
Marko Timlin is a Helsinki-based sound artist, composer, musician and inventor of digital and analogue instruments. In recent years he designed an interactive music system called Sensor-Sound-Machine, which is based on a combination of ultra sonic sensors, solar panels, microprocessors and musical software. Timlin has studied Jazz drums at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt, Weimar and Music Technology at the Centre for Music & Technology, Sibelius Academy and McGill University, Montreal.
