Live Stage: Sonification Symposium [fr Aix en Provence]

audio.jpgSonification (what, where, how, why), A Symposium :: March 4-5, 2010 :: École Supérieure d’Art d’Aix en Provence, Aix en Provence, France.

The purpose of this symposium is to conduct a state of the art review of the use sonification* within art projects, with a focus on the use of data taken from our surroundings (in a broad sense) as opposed to gestural interfaces or electronic instruments.

What distinguishes sonification from other forms of data mediation? What are the different ways in which sonification is used in art? What parallels, similarities, differences & contradictions exist between the use of sonification or audio display for technical & for artistic purposes? What differences in the artistic approach does the use of realtime as opposed to recorded data imply? What is the importance of the relationship between the source of data and the way in which it is mediated? Continue reading

Fred Viola and Guille Lopez, The Turn

viola.jpgThe 2009 [13th] Japan Media Arts Festival is now over, but its Art Division has recommended a number of works that are well worth looking at.

Among them, is Fredo Viola’s The Turn, an interactive, toy-like site that showcases Fredo Viola’s music and unique video work. Traditional rectangular videos are joined by circular and hexagonal works, which can be turned. When shapes collide they generate sounds that create a musical instrument in conjunction with the interactive background music and adjustable physics parameters.

Viola collaborated with artist Guille Lopez in creating The Turn.

Live Stage: Electroshop [uk Plymouth]

2086914880_c6ba3c3092_m.jpg Electroshop [Concrete sound workshop] :: February 28, 2010; 6:00 – 7:15 pm :: Crosspoint, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth, Plymouth, United Kingdom.

Electroshop [Concrete sound workshop] is a performance/workshop involving musical sculptures and compositions created at ICCMR. The sculptures are fitted with sensors that connect to computers and synthesizers. Performers play the sculptures by running their fingers over the sensors, and can even change the sound quality by subtly turning and moving the whole structure. The signals are then relayed to synthesizers, which produce the music. Acousmatic interludes with original text by Gerard Maroney. Continue reading

Live Stage: Francisco Lopez [de Berlin]

lopez_bio2.jpgFrancisco Lopez :: February 19, 2010; 9:00 pm :: NK, Elsenstr 52 2hh 2 etage, in the Neukölln area, Berlin.

Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene. Over the past 30 years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory and spiritual expansion.

Non-Cochlear Sound for Diapason

blink.jpgNon-Cochlear Sound :: Organized by Seth Kim-Cohen for Diapason :: Call for Work — Deadline: June 3, 2010.

Diapason will be working with sound artist and author Seth Kim-Cohen to present an exhibition of Non-Cochlear Sound, as formulated in Kim-Cohen’s book “In the Blink of an Ear: Toward a Non-Cochlear Sonic Art” (Continuum). The exhibition is scheduled for October, 2010.

Non-Cochlear Sound describes a form of sonic practice not primarily concerned with the ear. Marcel Duchamp’s famous call for a non-retinal visual art was answered (eventually) by minimalism, conceptual art, social-based practice, and a host of approaches that appeal not to the eye, but to other concerns. In his book, Seth Kim-Cohen asks why sound has been slower to make the conceptual, linguistic, and social turns. Continue reading

Tristan Perich: Interval Studies [de Copenhagen]

tristan_perich_interval_study_3_600.jpgTristan Perich: Interval Studies :: February 5 – 14, 2010 ::Mikrogalleriet, Gormsgade 9, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Mikrogalleriet’s solo exhibition for New York-based composer and artist Tristan Perich ends this Sunday in Copenhagen. His new body of work, Interval Studies, is a formal look at musical intervals as a dense continuum of microtonal pitch, expressed en masse as discrete 1-bit frequencies distributed across hundreds of individual speakers. Each speaker, emitting a single, primitive 1-bit tone, becomes a microscopic voice in the total cluster, substituting individual pitch for larger sonic masses. Photographs and Video from the exhibition.

Nicolas Clauss’ MMIX*

pic_art_web03.jpgMMIX by Nicolas Clauss :: Japan Media Art Festival, National Art Center, Tokyo and online at flyingpuppet, a collection of digital tableaus started in 2001.

MMIX* [Roman numerals for 2009] is a timeless work in four interactive tableaus, where each visitor is invited to follow with his eyes and ears what his mouse gestures reveal. At each caress, sound and visual elements get randomly muddled up on the screen creating always new combinations. A work travelling between real and surreal, dream and mind, rage and fright, where humour and drama are cruelly mixed to suggest the sad patterns of our contemporary reality.
