His work has appeared in major festivals including Sonar, Festival Garage, Zeppelin Sound Art Festival, Readme, Transmediale and Sonic Art Network conferences and many others.

His work has ranged from digital sound performances of electronic generative music, interactive installations and software art. Developing his own custom software his diverse work has explored notions of post-human conditions, issues of control and dehumanising relations with technology, to experiments with digital sound and experimental generative music software. He has also worked as a sound designer for animations and short films as well as collaborating with other artists and choreographers who work with dance and technology.

Own Your Own Radio Station [us sea to shining sea]

silhouette.jpgFrom October 12-19, the FCC will open a rare window for issuing full-power, noncommercial radio licenses. Now may be your only chance to secure a license. Read the FCC’s announcement.

The window itself will only last seven days. You can only file your application during this seven-day window, so everything needs to be prepared in advance. If you don’t apply during this window, it will be many years before another licensing window opens and, frankly, there won’t be much full power radio spectrum of value available after this issuing period. Find out where there’s room on the dial. Learn how to run a station. Check out getradio.org.

Atlantic Waves

atlanticwaves.jpgAtlantic Waves is an improvised network music performance by Monolake and Deadbeat. A special application, the Atlantic Waves Interface III, makes it possible to create music together in realtime while being thousands of miles apart. The Atlantic Waves Interface utilises a beautiful graphical surface which is projected during the performance. This interface is simple enough to be controlled in real time but allows for building up complex musical structures. It also allows the audience to follow all actions and to become part of the process. Every sound generated has a visual representation and all interaction with the software is displayed. The result is a unique and constantly evolving and changing piece of audio-visual art, created simultaneously in two different locations on the planet.This radical new concept of internet performance provides the bridge between club and fine arts, between computer graphics and music, between installation and improvisation.

Radio Play by Ajaykumar

zen001.jpgradio play by Ajaykumar is a sound installation that is in part a play on a radio play. It takes the form of an auto-ethnographic audio presentation, crucially experienced in a darkened space.

Formally and thematically the work engages with the Japanese concept of Ma, which signifies emptiness-presence, interval, pause, rest, a space in-between, in-relation, and space-time. It is as if one finds the real meaning of something when one ‘reads between the lines’. Blurring distinctions between practice and theory, radio play has resonances with performative lectures of John Cage and the film essays of Chris Marker. radio play also has resonances with Derek Jarman’s Blue. You can listen to a ‘lo-fi’ version of the radio play sound track at Ajaykumar’s website.

Call: Instruments of the Post-Prohibitive Age [us Worcester, MA]

logo2b.gifThe Extensible Electric Guitar Festival, Clark University, Worcester MA USA :: April 4-5, 2008 :: Call for Presentations – SYMPOSIUM: ‘Instruments of the Post-Prohibitive Age’ :: DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 01/01/08.

Our symposium begins where Kyle Gann’s keynote to the Extensible Toy Piano Festival (Nov. 2005) left us — with a consideration of the ‘post-prohibitive era’.** Listeners have access to music from every historical era, social context and geographic location, and it’s all accessible instantaneously. Musicians can synthesize all previous musical thought. Every musical style, unusual sound, revolutionary impulse or aesthetic ideal can be incorporated into new music. If modernism’s relationship with mass-culture was marked by a fear of contagion, our post-prohibitive era might be thought of in terms of information-overload. And how do we go about making sense of it all? Continue reading

The Extensible Electric Guitar Festival [us Worcester, MA]

logo.gifThe Extensible Electric Guitar Festival, Clark University, Worcester, MA :: April 4-5, 2008 :: Call for Music and Performers :: DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 01/01/08.

Since its development in the mid-twentieth century, the electric guitar has had a profound influence on many aspects of music, creating new sounds, spurring the development of new musical styles, and reshaping concepts of musicianship. In the early twenty first century, despite retaining its iconic status as a symbol of innovation and transgression, the electric guitar and its uses now seem commonplace, almost routine; in short, the instrument may be in danger of losing its edge.

Tenori-on

pic-001.jpgNot yet ready for sale, this truly marvelous little instrument is a collaboration between media artist Toshio Iwai and Yamaha. Tenori-on has a 16X16 matrix of LED switches that allows anyone to play music intuitively, creating a visible music interface.

The switches function as individual displays that emit light that emulates intuitively the related sound. When you push a switch for a short time, a ripple of light spreads out from the switch that corresponds with the sound you have chosen. If the switch is held longer, a dot of light remains on the panel indicating that the light and sound will be played repeatedly (looped). Even non-musicians can quickly understand the relationships between the sounds and switches and can enjoy improvising with it. Continue reading

Live Stage: Tomato Quintet [us Los Angeles, CA]

624036233_d584e2a79e_o.jpgTomato Quintet :: August 25 – August 31 :: Performance: August 31, 2007; 8pm :: Free at Machine Project, 1200 D North Alvarado Street, Los Angeles, CA 90026 :: 213-483-8761,

Chris Chafe (Music), Nikolaos Hanselmann (Visuals) and Greg Niemeyer (Cook) team up to serve a night of tomato music. During the last week of August, they will let 5 cases of different varieties of tomatoes (from Chafe’s garden) ripen to perfection at Machine Project. They will record the ripening process by tracking the changes in CO2 that the ripening produces. They will store the CO2 changes during the week as a time series, compress it along the time axis, and translate the changes to a musical scale. The resulting music, a bit like a sonic time-lapse, is a sonification of 7 days of ripening in the course of 49 minutes. Continue reading
