The Hispaniola: a webradio play for flutist

radioplay.jpgmain_vote_03.gifThe Hispaniola by Christopher Williams : a webradio play for flutist is a 56-minute work in 4 acts somewhere between an experimental Hörspiel and an electroacoustic composition, to be heard via webradio, traditional radio, or live with or without the flutist present. Its title is borrowed from the protagonist ship of the mythical adventure novel Treasure Island, which functions as a source of material, a metaphorical axis, and an inspiration for the project as a whole.

The Hispaniola centers on a study of imaginary distances: both among its diverse source materials and its media of production. Fragments from Treasure Island, historical variations on Lillibullero (a popular 17th century tune which appears in TI), bits of interval signals from the BBC World Service, and original music for flute and electronics form part of the same circus, mediated by an FM radio broadcast within the piece that alters our sense of space and narrative. When this broadcast later “heats up” through feedback and electromagentic interferences, the radios en scène obtain a voice of their own. Continue reading

Live Stage: Ellen Fellmann [de Oldenberg]

ellen-fellmann_portrait.jpgEllen Fellmann: “Schwarz” – Composition for volcanic sand, violine, viola and cello — an audiovisual string quartet concert :: 24 May, 2008 :: 8 p.m. :: Edith Russ Site for Media Art :: Katharinenstrasse 23, D-26121 Oldenburg :: Tel. +49(0)441/235-3208 :: info@edith-russ-haus.de

In her audiovisual, electronic acoustic composition, image and sound are deployed on an equal footing – the projection and string quartet complement each other to result in a visual sound event. By interpreting classical content and translating it into the new media, Fellmann investigates whether and how a musical language of the past can still be modern and meaningful for us today.

    The loop machine for the wii

    rollo.jpgA former post-graduate student at Edinburgh University. Yann Seznec, a Franco-American sound designer, has used the Wiimote handset to create a musical instrument like no other. Dubbed the “Loop Machine“, it enables users to load audio files such as a drum pattern or a baseline on to their computers. These “loops” then automatically sync with each other. But the really clever part of Seznec’s invention is that these samples can be manipulated by moving the Wiimote around. The end result is that the user can dance about with the Wiimote in their hand, making music and performing at the same time. You can even record a set of movements and apply that same set of movements to particular sounds. Continue reading

    PulseCode

    pulsecode.pngPulsecode by Fokke de Jong (NL) PulseCode was designed by Fokke de Jong (NL). It is an experimental programming language for audiosynthesis and audioprocessing. Basically, it is a modular synthesizer, with which you create ‘patches’ by writing code. It has a very straightforward syntax and is easy to learn. There are roughly forty or so (increasing all the time) built in modules. These include various kinds of delays, oscillators, filters and noisegenerators. You can easily build more complex modules with these, and then reuse them in your code.

    PulseCode is still under development and more information and examples will follow. In the meantime, if you are interested, you can download an alpha version here. PulseCode currently runs on Mac OS X 10.4 and later, but should be relatively easy to port to other platforms. It is released under the GPL. If you have any questions or suggestions, you can send mail to: fokke [at] pulsecode.org.
