“Introduction to Ardour” FLOSS Manual

afront.pngIntroduction to Ardour FLOSS Manual is now online.

Ardour is a full-featured, free and open-source hard disk recorder and digital audio workstation program suitable for professional use. It features unlimited audio tracks and buses, non-destructive, non-linear editing with unlimited undo, and anything-to-anywhere signal routing.

Live Stage: The Blackest Flux [us Jamaica Plain, MA]

127.jpgThe Blackest Flux featuring Yutaka Makino:: December 10, 2009, 8:00 – 10:00 pm :: AXIOM Center for New and Experimental Media, 141 Green Street, Jamaica Plain, MA.

The Blackest Flux is an experiment toward abstraction of space/body. By using acoustic and psychoacoustic phenomena, it creates a state of disorientation and a series of tactile movement of sound masses over space.

Yutaka Makino is an artist and researcher currently based in Los Angeles. He seeks to amalgamate the historic precedents of computational composition and science, involving research in non-standard sound synthesis, spatial perception, acoustics, collective behavior, complex dynamical systems and emergence.

Merkur by Roberto Paci Dalò [at Vienna + online]

rpd1.jpgMerkur by Roberto Paci Dalò :: Live from Studio RP4, ORF Funkhaus Wien :: Broadcast in 5.1 Surround Sound :: December 6, 2009; 11:03 – 11:45 pm (CET) :: live streaming; shortwave broadcasting.

A performance based on the invisible architecture of sound and electric dust. A farewell dealing with the space through resonance, reverbs, echoes. A chemical laboratory where thin acoustical textures are developed through revolving layers and abstract forms. Moving on the threshold between broken melodies (coming in part from John Dowland’s vocal fragments), loops, soundscapes, and noise.

Some of the Merkur’s materials have been developed by Roberto Paci Dalò and Alexandra Purcaru through a residency at Hotel Pupik (Austria) during Summer 2009 and premiered in New York at Experimental Intermedia (October 09). Continue reading

Sounding Out: Pauline Oliveros and Lesbian Musicality

book.jpgSounding Out: Pauline Oliveros and Lesbian Musicality by Martha Mockus — a new book from Routledge Press ::

From the author: This book selects important compositions by Pauline Oliveros from 1960 to 1985 and listens to them sounding out lesbian messages of creativity, community, love, and sexuality within Oliveros’s specific social and conceptual milieu. I am inspired by her observation, quoted on page 1, that “it’s funny to listen this way” precisely because it enables a closer engagement with the material and ideological conditions of Oliveros’s music. With each piece I seek to get inside the sounds—how they are produced and their guiding aesthetics—and articulate how I hear them within North American feminist and lesbian contexts of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Work in lesbian theory by Terry Castle, Audre Lorde, Sue-Ellen Case, and Teresa de Lauretis as well as lesbian fiction by Dorothy Allison, Jane Rule, and Monique Wittig provide the reverberant spaces within which my listening takes place.
