In her fascinating lecture at the 2010 Red Bull Music Academy Cosey Fanni Tutti delved into the emotion, messages and meanings in art. Starting her career in the late 1960s, Cosey Fanni Tutti went on to become a seismic force in experimental music. 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. As...

Tokyo-born Makoto made a name for himself in the drum & bass scene thanks to killer keys and melodies, exemplified across various solo and collaborative projects for labels such as LTJ Bukem’s Good Lookin’ Records. Inspired by classical music and fellow countryman Ryuichi Sakamoto, his story is one of highs and lows. Despite blazing a trail with his early work and establishing himself in a competitive UK scene from the other side of the world, he encountered some unfortunate contractual...

In 2002 he released his debut solo album, Cooinda, named after the children home he was put into by the government. In...

Starting out in garage-rock band The Nazz, Todd Rundgren moved seamlessly through prog, power pop, and hard rock and became a heavyweight record producer, with the massive multiplatinum _Bat Out Of Hell_ to his credit. Despite this he’s always championed new technology, experimenting with synthesizers and becoming one of the first rock artists to explore the possibilities of video production and Internet distribution. Despite early solo success with 1972’s _Something/Anything?_, he...

Appleblim is one of dubstep’s most experimental sons, always pushing at the edges of UK bass by borrowing from dub, techno, garage or house. Best known for his work with Shackleton on the short-lived but influential Skull Disco imprint, the man born Laurie Osborne has since spread his wings on his own label, Apple Pips, and by looking further afield into the expansive world of techno. In his lecture at the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy, Appleblim recalled inspirational London raves, how he came...

Southern hip-hop wouldn’t sound the way it does without Mannie Fresh. The Nola representative earned his stripes on the local DJ circuit in the late 1980s, before going on to become the primary production force behind the Cash Money Records empire. Laying down the entire beat palette on multiple LPs for B.G., Juvenile, Hot Boys, Lil Wayne, and Big Tymers, Mannie Fresh sculpted the big, bangin’, and brassy sound of the Southern bling-rap movement at its boldest and brightest. In a public...

Tom Zé was born in 1936 in Bahia, Brazil. Now he's recognized worldwide as one of the godfathers of the tropicália musical and cultural movement, creating psychedelic, subversive and inspiring songs that have gone influenced and inspired musicians including Beck, Tortoise and David Byrne. In 2011 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, he traces the origins of this counter culture, the dictatorship in Brazil, his first albums, and gives a spontaneous recitation of the Madrid telephone directory....

Marco Passarani was there when Rome switched from disco to acid house, and even played his own small part in the transition as a radio DJ. Since then, he’s been immersed in the scene, running labels, making his music and DJing all over. In his lecture at the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy, he talks dance music in the Italian capital, the ups and downs of running a label, how to avoid being messed around by the majors and what to do in the age of collapsing sales.

Ken Scott started at the top—and stayed there for over a decade. Having got himself into EMI’s studio training program, his first session as an engineer was on The Beatles’ Hard Day’s Night album. But it’s as co-producer on Bowie’s first golden streak that he’s perhaps best known, stepping into the seat for the classic Hunky Dory, and remaining there through Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and Pin Ups, records that made Bowie a megastar but were also as musically diverse as The...

From his days pitching for design work from London’s thriving network of independent record labels through to his arrival on the other side of the desk as boss of Output Recordings, Trevor Jackson has survived on the strength of his ideas. These can be seen in his award-winning sleeve art, the grainy hip-hop of his Underdog alias and Playgroup’s disco-lit take on post-punk funk. In his 2010 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, he talks about being true to his vision and making music that stands...

El Guincho is a one-man carnival, a Canary Islander concocting macro sounds from micro samples, a Panda Bear you can dance to. Growing up in an isolated holiday destination with only his father’s record collection to link him to the world, Guincho’s sample experiments brought him to the attention of Young Turks and XL records, bringing his twinkling sound to a wider audience. In his lecture at the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy, he talked about the experience of growing up on a small island,...

Trevor Horn started small and became huge. He spent his early career as a session musician, playing bass on cheap and nasty albums of hits covers, before producing mostly forgotten sides by John Howard and girlfriend Tina Charles. But his massive success as one-hit wonder Buggles, “Video Killed The Radio Star,” gave him entry to the big league and before long he was producing landmark records with ABC and Malcolm McLaren. Renowned as an early champion of then-new electronic technology, Horn...
