Nothing New Under the Sun

images1.jpgIn response to: The Music of the Sun (Thanks to Simon Biggs) Charles Dodge – Earth’s Magnetic Field [1970] from Records as I Buy Them:

From the record notes: “The solar wind may be viewed as pushing against Earth’s magnetic field, in turn producing an equal but opposite push on the solar wind. The solar wind is not uniform and consequently any changes in it are quickly reflected at the Earth’s surface as changes in the magnetic field …. The Kp index represents the average of the magnetic changes, which are measured at a selected group of magnetic observing stations on Earth and may take on any of 28 distinct values. Every three hours, the observations provide a new value for the index, thereby giving eight values of Kp for each day. Continue reading

The Music of the Sun

Thanks to Marc Garrett at Netbehavior.org and Richard Gray, Sciene Editor at www.telegraph.co.uk

Music of the sun has been recorded by scientists. The sun has been the inspiration for hundreds of songs, but now scientists have discovered that the star at the centre of our solar system produces its own music.

Astronomers at the University of Sheffield have managed to record for the first time the eerie musical harmonies produced by the magnetic field in the outer atmosphere of the sun. Continue reading

Black Sound White Cube book release

1276543331mail_image.jpgfrieLocker Verlag, Vienna announces the BLACK SOUND WHITE CUBE book release by Dieter Lesage & Ina Wudtke :: ISBN 978-3-85409-547-7

If one looks at the contemporary, continental European art scene, blues, jazz, hip hop, drum & bass and dubstep – genres of music that one could label as ‘black sound’ – are almost absent. In fact, forms of expression and languages of traditionally white musical scenes are unquestioningly absorbed. One might consider, for example, the female artists’ group Chicks on Speed, which situates itself within the Riot Girlz tradition, or Daniel Richter’s painterly punk attitudes, or the ‘Deutsche Welle’ kitsch in the work of Jonathan Meese. Looking at art that references the tradition of the Afro-Atlantic diaspora, the contemporary, continental European art scene seems to remain speechless, lacking an adequate vocabulary and, above all, a cultural relationship.

Live Stage: Luminokinetika [nl Rotterdam]

ne.jpgLuminokinetika by Messmatik. :: Audiovisual concert / performance :: June 18; 9:00 pm + June 19; 4:00 pm :: hb galerie. Zaagmolenkade 46, 3035 KA Rotterdam.

The project is realized like mutual relationship and interaction of sound (live electronics, piano and violin) and moving image (specially programmed video software). Based on Srnec’s affinity for experimentation, adventure and soulful play, the live act leads the visitors to the center of Srnec’s light objects – Luminokinetika. Observing, researching and recording the hidden light and sound traces which emanate from lumino objects, and which are indiscernible and invisible in everyday detection, the performance is giving a new experience to comprehend the synesthesia.
