Arturo Lanz abandoned a career in pop music for one of uncompromising industrial – or repetitive meditation music, as he would put it – as Esplendor Geométrico in the early years of post-Franco Spain. Looking to Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire, he forged a sound that his compatriots didn’t get, but which made him something of a cult figure decades later, when a track was revived for the Minimal Wave Vol 1 compilation. Now living and working in Beijing, he divides his free time...

Sonicist, composer, biologist, Francisco López leads an enviable life, travelling the world and recording everything from rainforests to the big buildings of New York. With his roots in industrial music, he’s built his career on intuition rather than formal training. At the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy he talks in depth about why he likes to blindfold the audience, his abhorrence of physical objects, why he sees no gain in titles and how, slowly, the experimental music establishment has come...

Barcelona boy John Talabot had an unusual entry to music. Just as he heard weird techno records before rock’s great building-block bands, it took a broken turntable to make him realise what was missing in dance music – and why he needed to fill that gap himself. Having broken through with "Sunshine," he’s remixed the likes of The xx and has finally recorded his debut album. In this talk at the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy, Talabot steps out from behind the mask to explain why...

These days, the world’s top rap artists come calling for DJ Toomp’s trademark drum patterns. Naturally, it wasn’t always so. Behind the Atlanta producer’s extraordinary achievements is a history of record collecting, machine manipulation and self-education, a kind of holy trinity for durability in the game. Keen to impress the importance of learning about the business side of music, Toomp is proof that it’s not just skills that pay the bills – feeding your head about the nuts and...

Rarely will an RBMA lecture have contained so many references to jazz greats – and even more rarely will we have been in the presence of someone who has played with most all of them. Gary Bartz is an outstanding musician with an astonishing career. Whether live or studio-based, his musical output is defined by artistic progression at every turn. In his 2008 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Bartz discussed the essence of folk music, different ways of listening to music, his thoughts on funk,...

In his own words, James Pants is a crate-digging nerd, who is uncomfortable with irony and was fortunate enough to be discovered by hip-hop maverick Peanut Butter Wolf. Since linking with the Stones Throw crew, he has been knitting all kinds of hard-to-find music into his lo-fi beats, from funk, disco and electro boogie to lounge and weirdo electronica. In his 2008 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Pants discussed signing with Stones Throw, his approach to DJing, and his thoughts on irony in...

It’s a wonder there aren’t statues in honor of Melvin van Peebles. He is a true pioneer in an extraordinary array of fields – the first black movie director of the modern age, one of the first people to talk over music and, thus, a progenitor of hip-hop – at one time, he even managed to become the only black trader on the American Stock Exchange. In his lecture at the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy, he told us all about his incredible life in film and music, from sleeping on park benches...

From the late 1960s to the present day, Tom Oberheim has shaped the development of modern musicianship in a way that very few others manage to, building legendary devices that have been used by everyone from the Pat Metheny Group to Underground Resistance. In fact, for a time in the 1980s it seemed just about impossible to score a hit without an Oberheim DMX or OB-Xa – just ask Run DMC and Van Halen. What’s more, Oberheim has lost none of the enthusiasm that led him to the industry in the...
