Nicolas Fournel

Fournel has created a number of software programs along with MIDI and algorithmic composition generators and modulators. His many interests include procedural audio for video games, audio features extraction, generative arts, alternative input devices, personal robotics, music composition and sound design, and Japanese language and culture.

One free program we recommend downloading is "Blip," a drum machine on steroids, a sound design program and a performance tool, all at the same time. It continuously scans a grid of 64 x 64 cells which are painted with the typical graphic tools such as pencil, airbrush, line etc... Each row of the grid corresponds to a different instrument. The colors of the cells determine the volume, pan and pitch of the sounds triggered. Learn more here.

Neumann Presents U47 fet Microphone to Grammy-Award Winning Audio Engineer / Producer Bruce Swedien at the 137th AES Convention

Los Angeles, October 15, 2014 — During the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention held here last week, premium audio brand Neumann made a very special presentation of a new U 47 fet Collectors Edition to esteemed recording engineer and producer Bruce Swedien.

Swedien, who counts the recording and mixing of Michael Jackson's Thriller album among the highlights of his lifetime of career accomplishments, was presented with serial number 82 of the U 47 fet Collectors Edition, in honor of the year that the Thriller album was released to the public. The presentation was made by Neumann President Wolfgang Fraissinet at the Neumann booth on Friday, October 10th.

The original U 47 fet was used extensively by Bruce Swedien throughout the recording of Thriller, so the event was especially fitting as Neumann launched its new U 47 fet Collectors Edition to a new generation.

Wolfgang Fraissinet commented: "It is a very special honor for our company to honor Mr. Swedien in this way. He has not only left an indelible mark on the recording community at large, but his contributions to the recording of Thriller and countless other recordings have had a tremendous influence on our culture."

The Neumann U 47 fet microphone was iconic in shaping the sound of the '70s, '80s and beyond. As the transistorized successor of the U 47, it permitted the processing of very high sound pressure levels for the first time, and engineers were able to place it directly in front of extremely loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers and kick drums, as well as in front of more delicate sources such as vocals and acoustic instruments. The combination of the U 47 fet's ability to capture high sound pressure levels and the unique capsule design derived from its famous tube-based predecessor, the U 47 fet contributed to many legendary recordings.

Now, the U 47 fet Collectors Edition has been faithfully reproduced using the original production documents and schematics. The Collectors Edition is supplied with a high-quality wooden case with special packaging, and an individual certificate with the serial number of the microphone and signature of Neumann President Wolfgang Fraissinet.

The U 47 fet is now shipping and is priced at $3,999.95. For more information, please visit u47fet.neumann.com.

About Ben Klock:
Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock is without a doubt one of the most significant characters in techno’s recent history. A resident at Berghain since its opening in 2004, he has been able to leave his mark on the club’s unique sound, in turn the special space influenced Klock’s approach as a DJ and producer as well. Playing techno sets full of hypnotic, deep and heavy grooves, releasing records on Ostgut Ton and last but not least the aesthetics of his own label Klockworks (founded in 2006), have earned him an excellent international reputation over the last few years. Supported by stringent and enthralling tracks, remixes for such diverse artists as Kerri Chandler, Martyn or Depeche Mode, the revered debut album “One” on Ostgut Ton and his Berghain mix, Ben Klock’s name is synonymous with the vitalization of an essential definition of techno. His music is free of crippling nostalgia and rather wins you over with consistency, tension, and dynamics and time and time again with a sensibility, one would usually expect from house music. In this vein, Klock pursues an unexacting fusion of quantum jumps and tradition – including effortless melodies or hook lines. Being able to harmonize this method of industrial austerity, natural musicality and an impressive physicality is Ben Klock’s great art and skill. And of course his monthly marathon sets at Berghain that escort all what’s being said with pure sound and consistently motivate Ben Klock to skip the trapdoor called routine.
