Space Genetics Space Genetics

Space Genetics was formed in 2008 by Eric Haltmeier and Paul Scea. The concept behind Space Genetics centers on creating original compositions and platforms for improvisation that can be developed independently of time and space via the use of digital technology. The music of Space Genetics is realized through the Internet- based sharing of musical fragments, loops, cells, and/or structural material. Recorded samples are shared online and are then complemented and/or manipulated via digital technology in order to create new musical structures. In the case of Space Genetics, both woodwind instruments, electronic instruments, sampled sounds, and controllers are used to create the “source” material. The concept behind Space Genetics can be transformed to live-performance contexts. Once the new compositional material has been realized, methods for performing the new works are initiated, allowing for performances that combine the manipulation of pre-recorded material with real-time improvisation. The first Space Genetics recording, “Volume 1” was released in December of 2009 and consists of eight original compositions and two live realizations. Space Genetics “Volume 2” was released in May of 2011 and consists of a “suite” of five improvisations. “Volume 3” was released in April of 2012 and featured a series of improvised pieces that merged sampling, synthesizers, and woodwind improvisations

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
