Live Stage: Joe Grimm at Columbia College [us Chicago, IL]

41605_26231343662_2058804_n.jpgJoe Grimm :: Friday, November 19, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. :: at Columbia College, 916 S Wabash, Room 214, Chicago, IL :: Admission $10, Students $5

Organized by Lampo in cooperation with Columbia College, Audio Arts and Acoustics Department.

Epic new solo work from Joe Grimm. ALIAS (for Kathryn) is a synaesthetic light/sound performance for modified 16mm projectors, homemade light-sensitive audio electronics, and a large, white, side-mounted ceiling fan. The projectors create flicker-patterns that are often too fast for the eye to detect; but the changes in speed of these invisible flickers can nevertheless be traced in the illusions of movement (and stasis) in the fan-blades, as well as in the mutating timbres of the light-generated music. It is a meditation on the limitations of the body and the senses, on the breakdown of one’s ability to sensually access the physical world. Continue reading

The term “audio-visual” means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. The multimedia gallery installation artist and the video-jockey in a dance club have developed techniques that begin with the desire to fuse visual and audible experience. In recent and international performance practice, we recognize a move towards the use of material, non-representational approaches to this impulse. Continue reading

Ernesto Klar winner of the Share Prize 2010

luzes_011-200×200.jpgFrom the six finalists (Kuai Auson, Perry Bard, Sonia Cillari, Ernesto Klar, Knowbotic Research and Teatrino Elettrico) the judges selected Ernesto Klar winner of Share Prize.

Luzes relacionais” (Relational Lights) is an interactive audio-visual installation that explores our relationship with the expressional-organic character of space. The installation uses light, sound, haze, and a custom-software system to create a morphing, three-dimensional light-space in which spectators actively participate, manipulating it with their presence and movements. The work functions as a living organism with or without the presence and interactions of spectators. When viewers step outside the projected light-space, the system begins its own dialogue with space by means of extruding and morphing sequences of geometric light forms. Continue reading

Our work focused on ancient cultural themes, and their impact on contemporary personal narrative. Continue reading

Preview: Composing with Process 2.1

tone.jpgSneak preview of COMPOSING WITH PROCESS 2. 1, the second episode of the series on generative music :: by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore :: Very soon available online. PDF: http://bit.ly/csDGIk

Summary
The second episode in the series looks at the use of formal systems in the composition and performance of musical works. It explains the diversity of approaches to musical systems using a range of technologies and processes. The episode asks how we might distinguish systems based procedures in music to other musical activities, and makes reference to technological development and implementation, structural complexity, and relationships to other musical traditions. We compare three tape-based approaches to composition that explore sound as a temporal and spatial phenomenon and refer to theoretical positions offered by notable artists working in this field.
