Turing MachineWhat is the Meaning of What[Temporary Residence; 2012]By Brendan Frank; August 16, 2012Purchase at: Insound (Vinyl) | Amazon (MP3 & CD) | iTunes | MOGTweetAlan Turing is widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists of the past 100 years (He actually turned 100 two months ago). Among his contributions to our world is his eponymous machine, an abstract technique to help illustrate how computers carry out functions. Every computer in the world can be seen as operating with this underlying premise.
Long-running Brooklyn instrumental trio Turing Machine suffered a major loss with the tragic death of their drummer Jerry Fuchs in 2009. Along with providing the pulse for Turing Machine since their 1998 inception, Fuchs was a busy guy, splitting his time drumming for !!!, the Juan MacLean, Massive Attack, and others. His busy schedule, along with the extracurricular activities of other Turing Machine members, had pushed the group into a prolonged backburner status.
