Dear Reader,

coins.jpgWe’re half way through our fundraising campaign. Our goal is to raise $25,000 by the end of the year – we still have a long way to go.

We know that many of you are struggling as much as we are. However, if each of you were to donate a mere $5.00, we would succeed.

Please go to Turbulence right now to find out how. It’s easy!

Warm Regards,
Jo and Helen

From Scratch – A Conversation with Andrew Sorensen

stained_grab.jpg“Andrew Sorensen is an Australian musician and programmer, author of the Impromptu live coding environment as well as a live coding musician of note. I recently caught up with his latest work, documented as screencasts on his site. In A Study in Keith Sorensen builds a Keith Jarrett machine that juxtaposes two linked layers of performance – qwerty and (phantom) piano keyboard. Stained (left) is a striking twist on the “transparent” aesthetics of live coding, as Sorensen uses Impromptu to draw in, and manipulate, the code window, hooking the graphics into the musical algorithms.

Reblogged Synchresis

synchresis.jpgMichel Chion describes the term synchresis as… “the forging between something one sees and something one hears – it is the mental fusion between a sound and a visual when these occur at exactly the same time. Synchresis is an acronym formed by telescoping together the two words synchronism and synthesis”. (excerpt from: http://filmsound.org/chion/sync.htm)

ANAT, the Australian Network for Art and Technology has just launched its latest copy of Filter magazine (issue 66, [southern] summer 2007) with Synchresis the theme, with a special release DVD, and the launch (and xmas party) tonight at the Chauvel cinema in Paddington… Continue reading

Reblogged Metal Machine Music

drum-buddy2.jpgNew Orleans-based musician and inventor Quintron, best known for the performances and recordings he creates with his wife, as the duo Quintron and Ms. Pussycat, recently visited New York City on a delivery mission to the studio of multimedia artist Laurie Anderson with his handmade Quintronics Drum Buddy analog rhythm instrument. Considering her 25-year career trajectory innovating upon digital performance tools, the acquisition signals something of a shift- or at least a nod- to hacker/DIY undercurrents. Continue reading

Nominees for Vilem Flusser Theory Award

flusser.pngtransmediale Awards: In order to reflect the growing number of theoretical and critical practice works submitted for the competition the festival created the Vilem Flusser Theory Award. In collaboration with the recently opened Vilem Flusser Archive at the Universitaet der Kuenste in Berlin, dedicated to the complete works of the influential visionary and media philosopher, the prize, endowed with 2,000 euros, honours outstanding theoretical or research based practice.

Nominees include two works having to do with music: Naeem Mohaiemen (bd) – Fear of a Muslim Planet: The Islamic Roots of Hip-Hop (2007/8). Hip Hop and the visibility of Muslim artists offers a way to turn racist paradigms on their head. When rappers rhyme over the azaan or Quranic ayaats, mainstream society’s perceptions of an ‘alien’ religion are flipped. Continue reading

Livescribe

smartpen_x220.jpg“A new smartpen could change the way people practice mobile computing by bringing processing power to traditional pen and paper. Made by Livescribe, of Oakland, CA, the smartpen is designed to digitize the words and drawings that a user puts down on paper and bring them to life.

So long as the user writes on paper printed with a special pattern, the smartpen transforms what is written into interactive text. For example, the pen has a recording function, called paper replay, that can record sound and connect it to what the user writes while the sounds are being recorded. Later, the user can tap the pen over what she wrote and replay the associated sounds. “We’re starting to make the whole world of printable surfaces accessible and functional,” says Livescribe CEO Jim Marggraff.” Continue reading Computing on Paper – Livescribe’s smartpen turns a sheet of paper into a computer by Erica Naone, Technology Review.

Net_Music_Weekly: John Lifton

Mobile Music Workshop 2008 [at Vienna]

The Mobile Music Workshop 2008 is the 5th in a series of annual international gatherings that explore the creative, critical and commercial potential of mobile music.

We are looking for new ideas and ground-breaking projects on sound in mobile contexts. What new forms of interaction with music and audio lie ahead as locative media, ubiquitous networks, and music access merge into new forms of experiences that shape the everyday? Can they change the way we think about our mobile devices and about walking through the city? Continue reading
