Geometrical Music Theory

geometricalm.jpgThe shape of music (via KurzweilAI.net): Three music professors have developed a method called “geometrical music theory” that translates the language of musical theory into that of contemporary geometry. (Dmitri Tymoczko, Princeton University)

Live Stage: We Are Hacks: Music and Visual Performance at HOPE [us NYC]

wearehacks

From Peter Kirn at createdigitalmusic.com: “8-bit and robots and odd Max and Reaktor patches and custom visual software and visualizations of data packets and sound made from plants and mutant trumpets and gloves for DJing and laptop music – we’ve got quite a lineup here in New York this week.

Friday night, a live audiovisual lineup from the worlds of createdigitalmusic.com / createdigitalmotion.com invades the HOPE conference, aka Hackers on Planet Earth, the three day-long convergence of tech hacking. $10, open to all, 11-2a Friday July 18 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York. It’s a live digital, technological variety show in a doomed NYC landmark hotel with an audience of famous and infamous hackers. (Think Kevin Mitnick and MythBusters’ Adam Savage and Steven Levy, all in one place.)
