Goodiepal the Århus Warrior
The online audio piece the Official Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra Walkthrough by the Danish/Faroese musician/artist Goodiepal has been transcribed by fans and published by the American publishing house MPH in collaboration with Pork Salad Press.
The pocket-sized book explains the theories and methodology that defines Goodiepal's work Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra and his concept of Radical Computer Music. This term was coined by Goodiepal, or Gæoudjiparl Van Den Dobbelsteen, while a teacher in composition at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. The term relates to the ongoing project Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra, which is a compositional game scenario conceived by Goodiepal in 2004 questioning the role of the composer, time, notation and media. Radical Computer Music has been presented frequently by Goodiepal at numerous lectures, performances and exhibitions throughout the western world since 2007. It is fundamentally music notated, not by computer networks but for computer networks, as a gesture towards the machine and the artificial intelligence expected to develop from it.
