Anthony Davis is an internationally known composer of operatic, symphonic, choral, and chamber works. He is also known for his virtuoso performances both as a solo pianist and as the leader of the ensemble Episteme, a unique ensemble of musicians who are disciplined interpreters as well as provocative improvisers. In April 1993, Davis made his Broadway debut, composing the music for Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, directed by George C. Wolfe. His music is also heard in Kushner’s companion piece, Perestroika, which opened on Broadway in November 1993. Continue reading

Sound Art at Bass Museum [us Miami Beach, FL]

hutchinson-giant-m-box.jpg[Image: Giant Music Box with Pins by Brenda Hutchinson – Photo: Luis Olazabal] Time is running out to catch ST20’s unique sound art exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art, 2121 Park Avenue, Miami Beach. SOUND is a thoughtful exploration of the meaning of sound art through the inclusion of new and historically important pieces that reveal and clarify the nature of sound, its physicality, its ability to define and occupy space, its intrinsic value as a tool for understanding and connecting with the world, and for helping us refine our sense of reality. SOUND runs now through March 29th, 2009.

Plan a visit and make sure to set aside enough time to absorb the range of possibilities contained in this show. In times like these, when we are bombarded with loud inaccuracies and distorted exaggerations, branding and rebranding, SOUND simply asks: How can we strengthen our aural sense within a visually dominant culture and what is gained by such a shift towards an aural perception of the world?

Live Stage: Turbulence@PaceDigitalGallery [us NYC]

Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present Turbulence@ PaceDigitalGallery, an exhibition premiering 3 works commissioned by Turbulence.org :: April 7 – May 1, 2009 :: Reception: April 7, 5:00 – 7:00 pm :: 163 William Street, New York City.

Hard Data — by R. Luke DuBois — is a data-mining, sonification, and visualization project that uses statistics from the American military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq as source material for an interactive audiovisual composition based around an open-source “score” of events. Using Xenakis’ understanding of formalized music as a starting point, DuBois will use a variety of statistical data ranging from the visceral (civilian deaths, geospatial renderings of military actions) to the mundane (fiscal year budgets for the war) to generate a dataset that can be used for any number of audiovisual compositions.

Pure Data Tutorial for Composers Released

kreidlercov.jpgThe big Pure Data (Pd) tutorial written by Johannes Kreidler with the help of a grant by the Music University of Freiburg / Germany, is now online, in English and in German. It is also available as a book (paperback) at Wolke Publishing House.

This tutorial is designed for self-study, principally for composers. It begins with explanations of basic programming and acoustic principles then gradually builds up to the most advanced electronic music processing techniques. The book’s teaching approach is focused primarily on hearing, which we consider a faster and more enjoyable way to absorb new concepts than through abstract formulas.

The patches described are available for download.

Live Stage: Marko Ciciliani [uk London + online]

no-input1.jpgPerformance Research & Interactive Performance Series presents Marko Ciciliani: Towards ‘dirty light’ – light design in the context of musical composition :: March 25, 2009; 4:00 pm :: Gaskell Building 048/Drama Studio Seminar, Brunel University, West London and webcast live.

In his work as a composer, many of compositions of the past years incorporated light design as a visual component. When working with light, he is at first approaching it as an additional musical parameter, although an inaudible one. In his current research, he is investigating in how far sound and light are compatible with each other. They share some significant characteristics: both are projected from singular sources, both are forms of energy and both are abstract forms of art. At the same time, both have also have some significant differences – for example in how our ears and eyes work and how our brain processes the incoming information. Continue reading
