Live Stage: Radiophonic Creation Day [world-wide]

radiophonic1.jpgRadiophonic Creation Day — more than 30 artists from 17 different countries :: May 23, 2009; midnight to midnight :: Paris – Sur Aligre FM 93.1 MHz :: Montpellier – On l’Eko des Garrigues 88.5 MHz :: Budapest – On Radio Eper 97.0 MHz :: Prague – On Radiocustica Cro3 Vltava :: London – On Resonance fm 104.4 MHz :: Toulouse – On Radio Campus Toulouse 94.0 MHz :: Lisbon – On Radio Zero :: Rome – On RAM LIVE :: New York – On Art On Air :: Luxembourg – Sur Radio ARA 103.3 MHz.

Radiophonic Creation Day attempts to include every aspect of radiophonic creation by proposing radio plays, creative documentaries, field recording, experimental and concrete music, sound poetry, Hörspiels and unidentified sound objects. We hope this event will inspire the production of creative programming in European radio stations and accelerate the setting up of a found to help radiophonic creation. Nowadays, this neglected art still suffers from a lack of financial help that continually threatens its position among the radio production line.

He seeks to amalgamate the historic precedents of computer music and science, involving research in spatial perception, complex dynamical systems and emergence. His works range from sculpture to sound works including performance, computer music composition and spatial sound installation. He has been working on spatial compositions for Wave Field Synthesis. His recent commission work, Amorphous for Wave Field Synthesis, was premiered at the International Gaudeamus Music Week 2008 with the Foundation Game of Life’s 192.8ch Wave Field Synthesis System.

One of two authors-performers play rolling a virtual dice over the board of a Parcheesi game, projected on the screen, and moving the counter on the board is activating different behaviours. In some squares there are soundfiles of well-known Radio Art works, in some other the performer receives audio instructions to play, other squares have links with webpages of freeradios or with radio stations belonging to Ars Acustica group, in other squares some colleagues give their personal definition of Ars Acustica.

Novi_sad North American Tour

noramtour_2009.jpgNovi_sad’s North American TourNovi_sad (Thanasis Kaproulias, b. 1980) graduated from the Economic University of Piraues. He lives and works in Athens, Greece. Influenced by the pioneers of audio assault, he began generating sounds in 2005. Amplified environmental recordings, drone manipulations, structured ambient soundscapes, microtones vs overtones, all come together in a hyper structure of iconoclastic form.

Novi_sad’s artistic output displays a high level of technical ability, as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of location. The strength of his soundscapes works in the same elaborateness for the whole creation process, starting from a basis of very strong conceptualism, the intense examination of field recordings over the actual composition work, to the point of performing back the result onto location. Every sound that occurs is treated with a sculptural integrity and his sonic power operates on a level in which the audience participates as transcendental listeners. Continue reading

Live Stage: Pauline Oliveros @ Sonorities [ie Belfast]

profile-oliveros.jpgPauline Oliveros at Sonorities Festival of Contemporary MusicDroniphonia with iPHONES, Spatialization, Streaming environments and Multiple Instruments (2009) :: May 16, 2009;7:30 pm :: SARC, Harty Room and the Whitla Hall, Queen’s Unversity, Belfast.

Droniphonia is based on the iPHONE application Srutibox by Henry Lowengard with environmental streams from Locus Sonus. Concept by Pauline Oliveros. Droniphonia has polytonal drones continually morphing timbres, volumes and fundamentals moving in space. Networked musicians (Belfast, Banff and Troy NY) listen to the drones and develop gradually overlapping improvised sounds and phrases – first solo and then between two or three players at a time in a slowly growing density and texture.

The excerpts are sped up 500X and mixed with the artist’s animated drawings of portraits of fear. Liminal is about being in between. Small objects on a light table are manipulated with archival footage on themes of waiting or transition and mixed in real time. Continue reading

Theremin Sensors Workshop [de Berlin]

theramin.jpgTheremin Sensors Workshop with Andrei Smirnov :: May 18 – 22, 2009; 12:00 – 6:00 pm :: NK, ElsenStr. 52 (2.Hof) Berlin, Germany :: Course Participation fee: 100 euros :: Registration required (limited to 12) — email enka_nkATgmxDOTde

This intensive workshop offers hands-on introduction to interactive systems, based on the theremin-sensor technology developed by Andrei Smirnov and based on the same principle as a well known electronic musical instrument the Theremin, invented by Russian inventor Leon Theremin in 1919. The sensors are small and sensitive digital Theremins useful for numerous applications including motion tracking, gestural interfacing, monitoring of small variations of electrical capacitances related to any sorts of conductive materials and media, including metal objects, foil, liquids, water, human body, plants, metal threads, thin plastic films with metallization, all sorts of Christmas stuff etc. Continue reading

Hackteria & labhacking [de Berlin]

hackteria.jpgHackteria & labhacking with Marc R. Dusseiller & Kaspar Koenig :: May 30 – June 3, 2009; 12:00 – 6:00 pm daily :: NK, ElsenStr. 52 (2.Hof) Berlin, Germany :: Course Participation fee: 100 euros :: Registration required (limited to 16) — email enka_nkATgmxDOTde

Experimental make-workshop with multilayered outcome for people interested in sound, DIY-biology, microscopy and interaction of living microorganisms. Knowledge in physical computing, video and sound processing, electronics and puredata is welcome, but not compulsary. The experiments will take place in close-up view of microorganisms (e.g. water bears aka tardigrades, amoebae and collected organisms from urban environments), which appears to be a world by itself. Maybe due to the scaling and the amplification of a microscope, but maybe also due to all parameters of imagination that the microcosmos provokes. Growth and behaviour of these microscopic animals remind us of our own micro-macro-development. Continue reading
