Jameszoo wanted to disappear from his music. That failed completely, he tells himself. But what a glorious failure. He developed an instrument that is not only self-playing, but also improvises and communicates with musicians playing live. They let the non-existent challenging soloist to unpredictable musical play.

 Electroacoustic wrestling

Asko|Schönberg and Slagwerk Den Haag are collaborating with Bossche producer Jameszoo. He has developed an algorithmic musical brain that plays a piano and responds to the master musicians of the ensembles. An autonomous instrument between the musicians, a kind of disklavier 2.0.
And Jameszoo himself, amazed god in his own sound universe, bombards the musicians wherever he can with his electronics. A unique piece of electroacoustic wrestling to remember.

Result always different

Mitchel van Dinther, aka Jameszoo, has an international reputation as a DJ and producer of experimental electronic jazz. On his latest album, Blind (2022), he focuses on instruments that play themselves through self-learning algorithms. As a result, the sounding result is always different. Jameszoo's robotic piano is in the tradition of Conlon Nancarrow's piano etudes: music that is often physically impossible for humans to play. But what a trip.
