Live Stage: David Linton + Renée Copraij [us Brooklyn]

n527278836_1018606_3146.jpgDavid Linton, Renée Copraij :: “Passage du Désir in the Tunnel of Love” :: February 10, 2009; 8:00 – 11:00 pm :: Monkeytown, 58 N 3rd St, Brooklyn, NY.

NY multi-media artist Linton and and Dutch performing artist Copraij present condensed excerpts culled from their large scale collaborative Live Cinema project Passage du Désir in the Tunnel of Love which premiered recently in Amsterdam. For this special MonkeyTown evening designed to introduce NY friends to their project these excerpts will be remixed along with new live camera “Bicameral” systematic elements (so expect requisite amounts of the usual Noise, Drone & Flicker) and an ultra concentrated camera based meditation by Copraij.

Live Stage: Peter Zinovieff [uk London]

cuillin_in_skye.jpgComputer Arts Society presents Peter Zinovieff: Music and Geology or Geology, Electronic Music and Opera? :: February 4, 2009; 7:00 pm :: London Knowledge Lab – Institute of Education, 23 – 29 Emerald St., London.

The talk is about three enterprises of excellence that I have been intimately involved in. I describe my making the first geological map of the Cuillins mountains in Skye (1958), the problems of my early computers (1960’s) in electronic music contrasted to some present day experiments (2008), and the preparation of my libretto for “The Mask of Orpheus” (1984) by Birtwistle. I show that these wildly different endeavours are not so dissimilar when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of their actual creation. Continue reading

Live Stage: Table Talk [at Vienna]

25_01_09.jpgTable Talk by Brandon LaBelle :: January 25, 2009; 5:00 pm (CET) :: Sound Installation: Tonspur-Passage, MuseumsQuartier, Vienna :: On Air: Ö1 Kunstradio in 5.1, January 25, 2009; 11:03 -11:45 pm (CET) :: Introduction by Georg Weckwerth and Elisabeth Zimmermann.

The dinner party acts as a performative event putting into play social difference, collective sharing, and embodied expressions all shaped and contoured by the flow of food and drink. The time of the meal then is a point of contact weaving individuality into a fluctuating mesh finding form in the presentation of the table, and the meetings taking place there. The table then is a kind of stage, and the passing of words and actions a loose script enacted amidst the ingestion of food and the subtle frictions that place the body in particular roles.

Live Stage: The Beeline Festival [us Cambridge, MA]

bee.jpgThe Beeline Festival :: April 5 – 19, 2009 :: MIT Broad Institute, 7 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA.

The Beeline Festival is a new music festival dedicated to putting the greater-Boston community into contact with an exciting, spirit-renewed energy and creativity that has been growing across the country in the past few years, a spirit that has sprung out of an intermingling of various new music genres that had previously had far less exchange. Accordingly, the festival is not limited to a single definition of new music, but rather includes – among other things – classical music, contemporary concert music, avant folk, punk jazz, world music, and electronic/mechanical invention.

Live Stage: We Can Always Be Happy [de Berlin-Kreuzberg]

kyd1.jpgWe Can Always Be Happy is an online audio-visual work by Canadian artists Kyd Campbell and Geronimo Inutiq :: January 23 – February 19, 2009 :: SOUNDMUSEUM.FM and KUNSTRAUM KREUZBERG BETHANIEN, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin-Kreuzberg (part of and ClubTransmediale).

We Can Always Be Happy: we both notice that this work is about feeling good and thankful. We met for the first and only time in Montreal, very briefly, over a year ago and it seems now that we both feel better than we did back then. Physically very distanced, we continue to communicate online sporadically, checking in and sending hopeful messages. Communication and collaboration are tools important to us for creating and living.

Live Stage: Alessandro Bosetti [us NYC]

harvestworks.jpgALESSANDRO BOSETTI: MASK/MIRROR:: January 26, 2009; 7:00 pm :: Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center :: 596 Broadway #602, New York City.

Mask/Mirror (M/M) is a sampler-based software tool created using Max/MSP that processes recordings of spoken language in real time. In performance, the composer uses samples of his own voice to create an ambiguous situation of being interrupted by himself all the time and of having to resort to all possible resources to keep making sense. The sampler follows both sound and meaning criteria in sorting, organizing and processing samples and formulating utterances. Continue reading

Doubles

Doubles is an electronic music instrument with a tangible user interface. Using two physical objects on a table, several simultaneous performers can interact with the instrument which registers the speed, distance, and motion of the objects. The surface of the table is paved with beads that roll when the physical objects are moved. This creates a sliding effect of acceleration and a centrifugal force is created to compute the audio and visuals in the installation. Check out the video below to see the visuals and hear the strange sounds produced by the instrument.
