Live Stage: Several Silences [us Chicago]

silence.jpgSeveral Silences — with Lewis Baltz, Manon de Boer, Troy Brauntuch, Paul Dickinson, Ryan Gander, Geissler and Sann, Gran Fury, CM von Hausswolff, Harold Mendez, Jonty Semper, Harry Shearer :: April 26 – June 7, 2009 :: Opening Reception: April 26; 4:00–7:00 pm :: Talk: 5:00 -6:00 pm — Hamza Walker and Thomas Trummer :: The Renaissance Society, 5811 South Ellis Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.

Music Editing Phone in our Future?

phone.jpgMusic-Editing Phone: The design firm Pilotfish has shown a concept for a music phone which “will enable good quality recording of three separate sound tracks and allow editing of the music by physically twisting and bending the phone… The phone’s main touch-screen, which is similar to today’s folder phones, consists of three ‘sticks’ that can be removed and separately clipped onto a musical instrument or a person to capture live sound,” reports Reuters. The phone won’t be on the market for at least a few years, and considering the pace of innovation probably won’t make it at all—but some of the concepts are likely to make it into the market via various handsets.

Atlas of Emotion Stream [it Napoli]

dalo.jpgRoberto Paci Dalo: Atlas of Emotion Stream :: April 18 – May 25, 2009 :: Palazzo delle Arti Napoli, via dei Mille 60, 80122 Napoli Italy.

The sound is immersive also using subwoofers for particularly low frequencies reproduction. That puts the visitor/traveler in the center of the perception field. Sounds are made out of field recordings and electronic sounds. The project is conceived on three different formats: installation, film screening, and live set. Continue reading
