Futuromania chat

Had a great in-depth chat with Melbourne's Charlie Miller for his 3RRR FM show Frantic Items, which airs later today (meaning Sunday, since Australia is already in the future - 6pm local time)

Update: the show is archived here


Had a really good chat with Günseli Yalcinkaya for Dazed magazine addressing "the anti-humanist tone" versus the quirky all-too-human individuals and desires that animate machine music, and much  much more besides. 

A kind of rehearsal for our conversation at Rough Trade East on Sunday June 23 (6pm)


  1. For me, probably the perfect example of a catchy yet quirky pop song that could never be created by AI or computers is "(Keep Feeling) Fascination" by The Human League. Not in a million years could any kind of artificial intelligence come up with something like that track.

    1. Does seem unlikely - I love that song.

      Talking of Human League, have you heard this by, ah, The Inhuman League? It's (in)human ingenuity clearly, but seems to almost anticipate AI (while also satirising our nostalgic desire for repetition, the stuckness of the culture)
