Werner Herzog’s groundbreaking approach to film has always included a similar outlook when it comes to music. Despite music not becoming a part of his life till later on, Herzog has a fine ear – from his extensive collaborations with Krautrock icons Popul Vuh and cellist Ernst Reijseger to the use of classical and folk music. In this conversation at the Red Bull Music Academy New York Festival 2017, presented as part of our Director Series and hosted at the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium in...

Whether delivering confrontational performance art as part of COUM Transmissions, pioneering industrial music with Throbbing Gristle, or constructing a prototype for acid house in Carter Tutti, her work has invariably been years ahead of its time.

Since the Academy likes to spread the musical landscape as far and wide as we possibly can, it felt right to have one of the most fascinating outfits in Italian musical history sit down with us as part of the 2004 Red Bull Music Academy in Rome. Founded in 1908, the Santa Cecilia Orchestra (or The Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, to be precise) was the first orchestra in the whole of Italy to devote itself to symphonic repertoire; giving the first performances of some of...

Chris Reed's career began thanks to a cheap pair of used turntables and an interest in the sounds coming out of his native London, including UK garage. By the early 2000s, Reed had graduated to Rinse FM, then a leading pirate station, and to making his own beats with an ear for a sound that was becoming known as grime. His early productions attracted the attention of Aphex Twin's Rephlex label, who featured him on the first Grime compilation, and he went on to release with Soul Jazz, Boy Better...

DJ Radar is probably best known for his awe-inspiring cuts and boundary breaking turntablist records. On collaborations such as Private Parts with DJ Z-Trip (from the era-defining Return Of The DJ compilations) through to his work on the Deep Concentration series, Radar has consistently pushed the limits of turntable music, incorporating sounds, samples and influences that aren't necessarily thought of as staple hip-hop sources. From there he began collaborating with kindred spirits such as...

Classically trained but equally inspired by electronic music, Francesco Tristano is on a journey that’s rendering the distinction between the two all but irrelevant.

In 2011 Red Bull Music Academy lecture he goes in depth about his transition and why he sees no difference between the two forms, how he came...

As West African music burrows ever deeper into the global consciousness, so awareness of its history grows.

Still active in his sixties, Gyedu goes back to the ‘60s, when his ears pricked to the Voice Of America’s Jazz Hour shows and the post-independence sounds of his own country, spearheaded by the legendary Kwame Nkrumah....

In his spatial composition “Spring in the 4Dimensional Gardens” we hear a diffusion of the sounds, meaning sounds never come from one point only but from a wide field of reflections smeared across the space. To achieve this, Murcof applies multiple spatial sound techniques. He places multiple reflective walls on all sides of the space at different distances, creating a dense surrounding field of unequal reflections of the sounds in the space.
