A love letter to Rosie, the first mixer made just for DJs

There was a time, pre-1971, when all mixers were mono, and the thought of wearing headphones during a nightclub gig was laughable. Dance club DJing came into its own as an art form in the 1960s, but DJs back then were still stuck with mixers designed for radio broadcasting. Sound systems were custom installed at […]

25 years of Tidy: the Hard House evolution, and how it’s engaging the next generation

Non, Apple n’envoie pas l’AAC d’Apple Music directement aux casques (et aux AirPods)

Comme Apple va (peut-être) annoncer une version sans pertes d’Apple Music aujourd’hui, j’en profite pour revenir sur un truc sur Bluetooth. On voit parfois (et je l’ai écrit, probablement sur ce site d’ailleurs) que chez Apple, l’AAC (issu d’Apple Music, iTunes, etc.) est transféré directement à un casque en AAC, sans (re)compression. Et c’est faux.

Sous iOS, macOS ou n’importe quel autre OS, d’ailleurs, l’AAC est bien recompressé. C’est assez peu audible parce que l’AAC est un bon codec (on en parle là) et que l’encodeur d’Apple est efficace. Globalement, de l’AAC à 256 kb/s est transparent à l’écoute dans la majorité des cas. Pour le dire plus simplement, les utilisateurs ne font pas la différence entre de l’AAC à 256 kb/s et de la musique sans compression. Ils peuvent le dire (et certains ne s’en privent pas) mais ma petite expérience le montre un peu, en réalité c’est… compliqué.

Maintenant, vous pourriez ne pas me croire : pleins de gens disent le contraire. Et pourtant, deux expériences (plus ou moins) simples prouvent qu’iOS et macOS recompressent bien l’AAC.

La première est assez basique : lancez un morceau sur Apple Music et un autre programme en même temps. Ou faites retentir un son système. Vous l’entendrez dans le casque en même temps que la musique, ce qui prouve que le casque ne reçoit pas uniquement le fichier AAC d’Apple Music. Il n’y a pas de dégradation ou de coupure, ce qui montre bien que ce qui est transmis (compressé) en Bluetooth est bien la sortie audio de l’OS. C’est empirique, mais efficace et simple.

La seconde méthode le prouve de façon bien plus efficace, mais nécessite un peu de manipulation. J’ai pris un morceau morceau sur Apple Music, et j’ai enregistré la sortie en Bluetooth, avec un périphérique qui m’indique explicitement que c’est de l’AAC. Il a une sortie S/PDIF, donc on évite les conversions numérique vers analogique : ce que j’ai obtenu, c’est ce qu’un casque va recevoir avant de l’envoyer dans vos oreilles. Si Apple envoyait le fichier directement au casque, on devrait obtenir le même fichier ou quelque chose de très proche (comme le décodeur peut varier). Mais le spectre est différent : on voit très nettement que la version Bluetooth coupe les fréquences hautes.

Apple Music dépasse les 20 kHz


La compression en AAC coupe les hautes fréquences

La version Apple Music, en AAC aussi, dépasse nettement les 20 kHz sur l’extrait. La version envoyée en Bluetooth, en AAC avec une recompression, coupe aux alentours de 19 kHz (un peu en-dessous). Ce n’est pas réellement un souci, dans le sens ou la majorité des gens est incapable d’entendre un son à plus de 19 kHz, mais ça montre bien qu’il y a une coupure franche, issue du processus de compression.

Dans le même ordre d’idée, l’encodeur utilisé avec les appareils Android (ici une Nvidia Shield) coupe nettement avant, et ce site l’explique bien. La Shield, sur un autre morceau, coupe vers 17 kHz quand l’encodeur Apple coupe donc vers 19 kHz.

L’AAC Android coupe tôt


L’AAC Apple coupe moins vite

Le but ici n’est pas de dire que la compression AAC est mauvaise, ou réellement un problème. Je suis plutôt convaincu que l’énorme majorité des gens (pour ne pas dire tout le monde) n’entend absolument pas la différence entre l’AAC et de l’audio sans compression dans des tests en aveugle. Mais par contre, Apple n’envoie pas le flux Apple Music aux casques. C’est techniquement possible (ça a été a priori fait en MP3 il y a quelques années) mais ce n’est pas le cas ici.

Xite Labs

Par : Marco Savo

Xite Labs is an audiovisual creative studio working at the intersection of art and technology, digital media and interaction design.

The team is formed by top-notch audiovisual artists who have left an unparalleled mark in the world of electronic music.

They have delivered off-socks-knocking 3D mapping installations since 2000, working with internationally renowned musicians such as Tame Impala, Infected Mushroom, Steve Aoki, Skrillex and Amon Tobin to name a few.

Audiovisual artist - projection mapping

We have been lucky enough to attend their mind-blowing audiovisual experience developed with Amon Tobin, for his international tour following the release of the album ISAM. That was back in 2012 at Sonar Festival in Barcelona.

Tobin’s avant-garde IDM soundscapes lead the way for the audiovisual storytelling who took the audience on a unforgettable journey. The show started with an otherworldly cube-shaped structure coming to life.

The stage then turned into a ship launched into space with Tobin residing in a hyper-sleep pod. After dream-like hallucinations Tobin comes out actually wearing the suits shown in the animation.

A complex audiovisual narrative that blurs the boundaries between real and digital world, firing all sorts of trickery to cleanse out the audience of all their spatial references. Only when we lose all the anchor points we are truly primed to experience the digital voyage.

ISAM takes us on a journey through the unexplored universe generated by the EDM soundscape of Amon Tobin to the bring us back to the core of the action: the musician and his performance.

In my opinion, Xite Labs major breakthrough is their ability to truly animate their installation, snapping out of the static AV sculpture by delivering an immersive experience where all senses are captured within the space.

Their audiovisual world is disorienting and astonishing as it builds up in front of our eyes, departing far away from the bidimensionality of the screen experience.

Audiovisual artists

Formed in the year 2000 as V Squared Labs by Vello E Virkhaus they have then merged with Tandem Digital Entertainment in 2018 to form XiteLabs.

Through the leadership of Greg Russell and Vello Virkhaus the audiovisual studio continuously executes next level experiential visual artistry.

The duo is always taking “never been done” concepts and turning them into reality. This process always starts with the blank page, and working with clients to define the words, scenery, illumination, content, interactivity, and the means to deliver it all.

SHAPE 2021 – Open Call

Par : Marco Savo

DEADLINE: 31 JULY 2020

SHAPE is a platform for audiovisual culture and innovative music from Europe.

It’s a three-year initiative co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The platform was formed by members of ICAS (International Cities of Advanced Sound) and involves 16 audiovisual events and cultural centres.

Each year they choose 48 audiovisual artists and musicians to participate in performances, workshops and residencies across the network.

Due the pandemic crisis we are living we are in need of a an internationally coordinated support to the new media arts, often slipping through the cracks of cultural funding due to their hybrid nature.

Of course every open call or artist residency is welcome, no matter where it comes from. But more coordination among venues and events will bring more opportunities and visibility for young and recognized artists.

Europe has the advantage (still, let’s see for how long) of a long-lasting infrastructure that connects different cultural scenarios across a myriad of different languages and beliefs.

SHAPE: Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe is the result of this network in action. By fostering audiovisual artists in showcasing their work internationally and audiences in experiencing a very diverse cultural offer.

GOGBOT: Enschede, 10 – 13 September 2020

Par : Marco Savo



Gogbot is an audiovisual event for creative technology, science, new media arts and music.

Out and about robots, hard-techno futuristic music, crazy bonkers live performances, audiovisual extravaganza with a general cyberpunk attitude to bond it all together.

All of this and much more is offered by Gogbot Festival, the techno-hardcore-sci-fi audiovisual event based in Netherlands.

Basically the kind of event we would go on a normal weekend if we were living in the Mad Max universe. The main aim of the event is showcasing the most avant-garde and cutting edge trends in the audiovisual and new media world. And then push a little further!

Gogbot - Audiovisual Event - Robotics
Compressorhead - Animatronics Band

There is nothing quite like Gogbot on the audiovisual scene: AI meets AV, Science meets music, art meets activism during 4 intense days of multidisciplinary activities across Enschede.

Every year, the organizers propose a controversial and thought-provoking theme set to trigger reflection in the community and cutting-edge experimentation by the selected artists. Innovation in digital creativity is key and the festival creates a sonic space for this.

Every year, the result is an insanely powerful and immersive artistic rendez-vous that leaves a lingering impact awhile after the end of the festival.

This year theme is Quantum Supremacy, a mind-blowing, controversial, but extremely urgent theme.

Big companies such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM are competing to build the first quantum computer, a ‘supercomputer’ expected to be a staggering one billion times faster than today’s best computer. What will the quantum future hold?

In this Age of Pandemic, we are made acutely aware of our dependence on digital technology for work, education, and healthcare. Now more than ever, the growth of digital technology demands critical reflection.

Globalization and economic growth have brought us pandemic and environmental destruction. How can we break this cycle? Can we harness quantum technology to protect ourselves and the world we live in?
