Share Prize: Orchestra Meccanica Marinette plays Nag Hammadi :: November 3 and 5, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. :: Regional Museum of Natural Science at via Giolitti 36, Torino.

The orchestra consists of robot drummers that play steel drums “live”, under the direction of a performer. The interactive rhythms of the OMM sound out the movement, work and machinery of Turin industry. The subtext moves along the lines of the “Nag Hammadi”, the third-century A.D. Gnostic text, before plunging into contemporary mythologies through pieces inspired by the works of Ballard and Burroughs, exploring the relationship between, and the fusion of, human and machine.

Sonumbra preview

moma-sonumbraimg_assist_custom.jpgThe SonUmbra is a solar powered upside down umbrella/tree designed by Loop.pH. During the day the tree, like a real tree, provides shade.

To do this as people move about the tree, the tree lights up and emits sound. To see how, watch the following: Continue reading

Maryanne Amacher (1943-2009)

Maryanne Amacher (1943-2009)

[From: Post Classic, Kyle Gann on Music After the Fact at www.artsjournal.com]

The music world lost one of its most bizarre characters today, and I say that with the utmost affection. Maryanne Amacher was an amazing composer of sound installations, who occasionally taught courses at Bard. I first encountered her in 1980 at New Music America in Minneapolis. She had, as was her wont, fitted an entire house with loudspeakers, and the staff was in a state of jitters because at opening time she was still obsessively running around and changing things. She was a tireless perfectionist. Continue reading
