Cheryl L’Hirondelle Sings the Landscape [ca Vancouver]

songlines.jpgCheryl L’Hirondelle nikamon ohci askiy (songs because of the land) :: until February 2009 :: Vancouver, B.C.

This project explores the relationship between sound, space and identity as experienced through a cree worldview. By creating a “performative audio map”, L’Hirondelle will negotiate a journey through new territory, developing a nomadic relationship with the land. Her actions/singing will be in direct response to her encounters within the territory – the physical environment she finds herself in and its inhabitants.

During the month of December, the artist will make daily journeys throughout Vancouver and “sing” the landscape she encounters. These encounters will be captured by mobile phone by the artist and whatever other technologies are made available by participating viewers/audience (video, photo, audio). Continue reading

Live Stage: Rob Kennedy [uk Glasgow]

spark1.jpgUpgrade! Scotland: Rob Kennedy :: November 26, 2008; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: CCA, 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow :: Free, space limited RSVP rsvp [at] mediascot.org

We are privileged to present the première of new work from Rob Kennedy followed by a discussion with the artist. The three video works were born out of a series of collaborative projects working with composers Peter Dowling, Giles Lamb, Martin Parker and Sue Tompkins. The emphasis in each of the works is the desire to integrate ideas and methods of improvisation into the video and sound production process. This evolving collaboration and dialogue continually shapes, distorts and then reshapes the direction of the work. Continue reading

Guthman Musical Instrument Competition

guthman.jpgThe first Guthman Musical Instrument Competition, presented by the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology and Harmonix (makers of Rock Band) will award $10,000 in prizes to the best novel musical instruments as judged by a panel of experts from Harmonix, Wired, and Georgia Tech.

INSTRUMENTS: Any new musical instrument is eligible for the competition. Instruments may generate sound acoustically or electronically, they may exist in physical or virtual manifestations, and they may be played by humans, robots, or computers. They may modify, improve, or extend existing instruments — including the human voice — or they may offer entirely new design paradigms. New instruments which cross over these categories or which defy any such categorization are also welcome. Continue reading

Live Stage: Audio Forensics [uk London]

audioforensics.jpgAudio Forensics :: Exhibition: November 27-30, 2008 :: Symposium: November 30; 3:00 – 6:00 pm :: I M T, Unit 2/210 Cambridge Heath Road, London :: 020 8980 5475 (for symposium booking).

Comprising ambitious works by nine artists — Libero Colimberti, Jan Hendrickse, Simone Izzi, Nitin Lachhani, Luc Messinezis, Maria Papadomanolaki, Vytis Puronas, Mark Shorey and Mark Wright — who employ sound as the principle media of their practice, Audio Forensics demonstrates the breadth of engagement with sound in the arts, and how it can be re-evaluated in the context of an increasingly noisy world. Sound art encompasses a wide range of forms and concerns and has its precedence across many creative fields, yet, as these artists demonstrate, the acknowledgment of sounds significance in the arts is becoming of greater importance as technologies develop, and as the public become ever more aware of the interactions between sound, space and artistic practice. Audio Forensics provides an extraordinarily comprehensive inquiry into how sound, and its manipulation, influences our experience and understanding of our environment. Continue reading

Live Stage: Binary Waves [be Brussels]

binarywaves.jpgLAb[au] presents Binary Waves :: November 28 – 29, 2008; 2:00 – 10:00 pm :: Opening: November 27, 6:00 -9:00 pm :: Gesu Church, Rue Royale 165 Koningstraat, Brussels, Belgium.

Binary Waves is an urban and cybernetic installation based on the measuring of flows and their transposition into luminous, sonic and kinetic rules. The installation is constituted by a network of rotating and luminous panels of 3 meter-high and 60 centimetres wide, forming a kinetic wall. Their rotation is controlled by microprocessors, allowing to determine precisely the rotation speed and angle, while their networking allows to synchronise the movement of the panels. The microprocessors are connected to infrared sensors, capturing the movement of passer-by’s. Continue reading

Live Stage: Cuckoo Radio [us Pittsfield, MA]

Cuckoo Radio, Caged Songs Sung (Tick Tock Tick) by Ven Voisey — created for the City of Pittsfield’s 2008/9 Artscape exhibition :: November 29, 2008 – September 2009 :: Opening: November 29; 4:00 – 6:00 pm :: Ferrin Gallery, 437 North Street, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

A clock: twelve cages sing twelve songs for twelve hours of the day. A flock: which has temporarily gathered up high on a lamp post, as birds are wont to do, and every hour, on the hour, they sing a song. These songs, composed of recorded bird calls and simple synthesized tones, are warnings, expressions of joy, crooning love songs, mating calls, questions, frustrated cries… Simultaneously they’re mysterious offerings and homages to the wind, the air, and to the things that slip through the rungs of a cage.

Jorinde Voigt – Matrix & Lemniscate [de Kőln]

voigt1.jpgJorinde Voigt – Matrix [Notations] with Patric Catani & Chris Imler (Composition) and Lemniscate / ∞ [Acoustic Cluster] ::until December 20, 2008 :: Galerie Christian Lethert, Antwerpener Strasse 4, 50672 Kőln, Germany.

Matrix & Lemniscate is a unique collaboration between the artist Jorinde Voigt, and composers Patric Catani and Chris Imler. The lemniscate is, fundamentally a mechanism for the infinite (∞). A lemniscus or ‘ribbon’ that chases itself in a figure of eight describes the repeated and unending journey of the unbounded. Early Indian thinkers were quick to assert the abstract powers of infinities by recognising that when adding or removing parts to infinity, infinity would always remain. Jorinde Voigt draws structures energised by real and imagined possibilities to investigate finite boundaries of systems. Continue reading
