DASK

DASK was the first computer in Denmark. It is an acronym for Danish Arithmetic Sequence Calculator. 

The man behind DASK is an Electronics and Sound Engineer with a background in sound and audio systems. He has been listening to various electronic music for 30+ years from Early TD to more recent Berlin School like Redshift etc. He started to experiment with field recording, synths and sample manipulation about 10 years ago but he always discarded all his material until recently. He is not sure why he decided to finish an album and still aspires to be as good as some of the greats in electronic music composition. He wonders if not being a professionally trained musician helps or not since he doesn’t follow many rules when playing about with sounds and sometimes interesting results to his ears are found by experimenting rather than trying to follow music theory rules.

DASK - Messages

DASK was the first computer in Denmark. It is an acronym for Danish Arithmetic Sequence Calculator. The man behind DASK is an Electronics and Sound Engineer with a background in audio systems. He started to experiment with field recording, synths and sound manipulation over 10 years ago but always discarded his material until recently. "Messages" is the second SynGate Records release from DASK. In 1974 an interstellar message carrying information about humanity and Earth was sent from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico to the star cluster M13, 25,000 light years away. Frank Drake with the help of Carl Sagan devised the format of the message. Track 1 starts with the tones of the message which was sent.
In October 2008 a high powered digital signal was sent from the RT-70 telescope towards Gliese 581 and it will reach the planet Gliese 581c in 2029. Cosmic Call is the name of two radio messages also sent from RT-70 in 1999 (Cosmic Call 1) and 2003 (Cosmic Call 2) to various nearby stars. Cosmic Call 2 will reach Cassiopeia in 2036 which is the earliest of both calls. Other transmissions have been sent in our quest to reach out beyond our home but it has been suggested that we must advance into a type 1 civilization on the Kardashev scale for reliable contact with other civilizations. A type 1 civilization can use the energy reaching its planet from the parent star. We are currently a type 0 civilization using the planets natural resources to expand releasing carbon. It has also been suggested that a 'Great Filter' occurs at some stage of a civilizations progress that wipes out all life at type 0 such as a species 'burning itself out' by damaging its home planet ecosystem for example. This connects to the idea of the Fermi Paradox (where is everyone?).

DASK - Sol

Artist: DASK
P: 2018

Inspiration came from watching the documentry swallowed by the Sun by National Geographic. It is Berlin School but I have atempted to move away from the typical style and introduce cinematics and other ideas. It is released in 24 bit format 44.1Khz.
Sol is the Latin name for the Sun. It is a main sequence star meaning that it is in the most stable part of its life converting hydrogen into helium. It is just over half way through its main life cycle and will remain stable for at least another five billion years. It has a mass 330,000 times of Earth and over 99% the total mass of our entire solar system. After about 8 billion years of fusing hydrogen into helium the core of the sun is not dense and hot enough to start fusing helium and remain stable so gravitation forces take over and it will exit its main sequence. The outer regions of the star will expand outwards over time as the Sun gradually transforms into a red giant engulfing the innermost planets. This is not the end of our star and it will live on for trillions of years as a white dwarf.
