Le Mariage, Art Clay :: A performance for two Swiss music boxes and six meter punch cards :: Performers: Art Clay & Valentina Vuksic– A performative work for two music boxes and two performers inspired by musically by “La Mariee mise a nu par ses celibataires meme” from Marcel Duchamp.

BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body [ie Dublin]

bio.jpgCall for proposals: Calling all experimental musicians, musical neuroscientists, sound artists, cyborg performers, dance-floor divas and harmonic engineers :: Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is currently developing a major new exhibition and event and workshop series entitled BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body and we are seeking your proposals for gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances for inclusion. We will consider both proposals for projects within the Science Gallery building and off-site or roaming projects. Some funding is available to support projects, but projects which can bring other sources of support are welcomed.

How does the body respond to music? Is there a neuroscience of dance? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Why does a minor cord sound sad? How does a DJ manipulate the emotions of a crowd? Continue reading

Aviary Orchestra [uk London]

xippas-celeste-boursier-mougenot.jpgFrom: On the Wings of an Unusual Exhibition by Alice Pfeiffer, Part of Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s exhibition at Barbican’s Curve, (Barbican Gallery, Silk Street, London): …. For his first solo show in Britain, the French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot has built an aviary orchestra at the Curve — and the exhibition is designed specially for the unusual space, which wraps around the concert hall at the Barbican Center.

At the show, which runs through May 23 at the Curve …, a basic rock set-up — guitars, bass, cymbals — are set up alongside amplifiers, and seeds and water are sprinkled all over the instruments; instead of musicians, there are 40 zebra finches. As they fly around and pick grain off the instruments, they generate a chance composition. Continue reading

call.jpgCall for papers for Sound as Art – Sound in History. Sound as Culture – Sound in Theory Conference :: organized by Ansa Lønstrup, Morten Michelsen and others :: September 23–25, 2010 :: University of Aarhus, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark :: Call for Papers — Deadline: April 1, 2010.

Today, sound studies provide an important framework for furthering cultural research related to a broad range of historical and contemporary issues. Also, sound studies contribute to the understanding of currents in social and global activity increasingly determined by auditory, sonic, and communicative materiality. At the same time, the exploration of auditivity and auditory cultures raises a series of significant aesthetic, medial, historical, cultural, and theoretical questions. Continue reading

Live Stage: MUSICfor.one [byTEN] [Chatroulette]

1×10graphic.pngMUSICfor.one [byTEN] is a live “concert” improvisation created for the Chatroulette social network. Audio in the performance is generated from screen grabs taken of the first 10 people that appeared during a previous visit to the website. These pictures in turn became the graphic notation that loosely scores the work. Through this process Jason Sloan becomes the conductor while the anonymous Chatroulette users become the unaware orchestra.

The individual scores are created using software that reads the RGB pixel information across the X axis of the image and assigns a unique tone to each colored pixel. Two 20 minute movements of MUSICfor.one [byTEN] will be performed live on the Chatroulette network March 20, 2010 at 10:00 pm EST [-5GMT]. Click through and see if you can find the performance. Documentation of MUSICfor.one [byTEN] will be made available.

Live Stage: Unique Sound and Imagery [us NYC]

plaster.jpgLISTEN IN with Threscwald: John McGill, Max Abeles, Pierce Warnecke :: March 19, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, New York City (at Houston St) :: free ::

Threscwald brings together three musicians working in the realm of digital audio and the performative arts. Brought together by a similar love – building software to create unique sound and imagery – they share creative processes that bear diverse yet homogenous results.

John Mcgill’s Lightning, Lizards of the Sky is a piece that attempts to harness various FFT-based effects originating in the Max/MSP environment. A sonic duality is conveyed using live audio signals to cut into saturated ‘noise’ textures. Using complex algorithms and generative techniques, Mcgill’s sound is born from a place of sensitivity towards abstract design and phrasing. Continue reading

Live Stage: No Images, A Performance in the Dark [ca Toronto]

n370543211462_5928.jpgNo Images, a performance in the dark :: April 6, 2010; 7:00 – 8:00 pm :: Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue, Toronto, ON.

Developed by curators Pablo de Ocampo, Jacob Korczynski and Christof Migone, No Images features the work of Ryan Driver, Annie MacDonell, Alexis O’Hara & Mary Margaret O’Hara and Alex Snukal. Imagine a pitch-black space. Immersed in absolute darkness, you cannot see your own hand, you have no idea of the size of the space that you are in, and your sense of time is completely lost. One’s typical dependence upon an encounter anchored by eyesight is replaced by an amorphous and immersive environment. This presentation strategy is not only ideally suited for sound art, it is also a radical engagement of the senses by way of complete deprivation of the visual. Continue reading
