about

Brostep in the Style of Florian Hecker is an eight channel electroacoustic composition that challenges ideas of economic and cultural values within sound art and contemporary computer music.

Drawing upon Florian Hecker’s piece Acid in the Style of David Tudor (2009), which explored the similarities of acid house and works by Tudor such as Pulsers (1976) or Neural Synthesis (1995), Brostep in the Style of Florian Hecker investigates the similarities of brostep with Hecker’s work such as Sun Pandämonium (2003) and Acid in the Style of David Tudor (2009).

Using the consumer software Massive, and specifically the preset bundle Loopmasters Present Dubstep Synths Massive Presets, Buckley uses Ableton Live LFOs across multiple parameters to work with the presets in order to emulate Hecker’s work. The sounds are then placed across the eight speakers using GRM Spaces.


Brostep in the Style of Florian Hecker is released as a stereo mix of all 8 channels, four mixes of two channels each, all eight channels individually, a video game in which to virtually experience the piece, and a limited-edition lanyard.
