Live Stage: 3 New York State Concerts [Troy, High Falls, Hudson]

dlconvergencebanner.pngDeep Listening Institute finds New Ways to Connect with Music & Creativity. Forty five musicians are coming together at the LifeBridge Sanctuary in High Falls NY after a five month virtual residency online to perform three New York State concerts: June 8 in Troy at the Sanctuary for Independent Media, June 9 at Time Space Ltd. in Hudson and June 10 at the LifeBridge Sanctuary in High Falls.

Originally proposed by Vonn New the three concerts are the proof of concept result of musicians forming new ensembles, improvising, planning and rehearsing via the INTERNET using SKYPE in audio conferences with up to ten players at a time.

A laptop orchestra piece is forming with a score by Doug Van Nort from Montreal. The piece calls for each person to contribute a sound sample of less than one-minute duration. The samples are then rated by each of the performers. Then each player downloads two samples, splits them in half and mutates the sample by joining one half of one sample to one half of another sample. One sample is kept without any further editing. The other sample is processed to change its characteristics. The samples are returned to the pool. Further mutations happen in another generation until finally there is a pool of sounds to play with. The performers then improvise with this sound pool that has been collectively created.

David Arner, Lisa Barnard, Nancy Beckman, Tom Bickley, Anne Bourne,Monique Buzzarté, Raylene Campbell, Seth Cluett, Viv Corringham, Caterina De Re, Stuart Dempster, Renko Dempster, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Heloise Gold, Susie Ibarra, Ione, Marc Jensen, Kathy Kennedy, Norman Lowery, Al Margolis, Dominique Mazeaud, Kim McCarthy, Brigitte Meyer, Stephan Moore, Ikue Mori, Kenta Nagai, Michelle Nagai, Uta Nagai, Vonn New, Kristin Norderval, Pauline Oliveros, Elizabeth Panzer, Zevin Polzin, Roberto Rodriguez, Margrit Schenker, Skot Smallwood, Bill Stevens, Will Swofford, Phala Tracy, Doug Van Nort, Katharina Von Rütte, Sarah Weaver, Julia White, Gayle Young, and Christine Zehnder-Probst.

  1. Doug Van Nort:

    I just want to add that my laptop orchestra piece is inspired by Kim Cascone and his ‘simple genetic algorithm’ workshop.
