NMR Commission: “Quartet With Pyramid Scheme”

paul.jpgQuartet With Pyramid Scheme by Jordan Topiel Paul, Eric Laska, Richard Kamerman, Reed Evan Rosenberg:

Quartet With Pyramid Scheme is a streaming online sound installation whose audio content is collected through a sixteen-week pyramid scheme structure.

Live Stage: Looking at Music 3.0 [us New York, NY]

49524.jpgLooking at Music 3.0:: February 16 – June 6, 2011 :: The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Media Gallery, second floor, The Museum of Modern Art :: the third in a series of exhibitions exploring the influence of music on contemporary art practices, focuses on New York in the 1980s and 1990s. In this dynamic period, imaginative forms of street art spread across the five boroughs, articulating the counter-culture tenor of the times. As the city transitioned from bankruptcy to solvency, graffiti, media, and performance artists took advantage of low rents and collaborated on ad hoc works shown in alternative spaces and underground clubs. Appropriation, also known as remixing, thrived. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” by Loud Objects

noisetoy_300.jpgWWW-Enabled Noise Toy by Loud Objects (with funds from the Jerome Foundation) [Needs Firefox browser]:

Loud Objects, NYC-based circuit sorcerers, present a wacky way to learn hardware audio programming. The WWW-Enabled Noise Toy invites anyone with a web browser to write their own audio code, program it remotely onto a Noise Toy, and play it live via webcam. In the spirit of “try it yourself” software demos, the website provides a simple environment for experimenting with low-level microchip-generated audio. Load code from the Loud Objects’ own library of performance algorithms, hone your own noise techniques, and add your work to the online archive to share it with other microchip coders and create an open source noise community.

image.jpgWith Hidden Noise:: curated by Stephen Vitiello :: March 3-6, 2011 :: Independent Curators International (ICI), Independent, 548 West 22nd Street, New York ::

With Hidden Noise is curated by Stephen Vitiello, an artist who has worked with sound for over 20 years, transforming anodyne noises into compelling soundscapes. Continue reading

Chess Games Translated To Music

scd_algebraic_notation.jpgChess Games Translated To Music :: Jonathan W. Stokes used algebra to map famous chess games onto a piano, and then outputted the results as MP3s. The tunes created are surprisingly listenable.

From his blog:

For absolutely no good reason, I found myself wondering what a chess game would sound like if played on the piano.
One can’t help but notice that algebraic chess notation maps almost perfectly to scientific pitch notation…

The eight columns of a chess board correspond to the eight audible octaves. E.g., C4 is a middle square on the chess board and C4 is “middle C” on the piano… Continue reading

At the end of the 1970s Sam Wagstaff put together an extensive collection of photos taken between 1870 and the 1930s, including Mumler’s ghost portraits, Kirlian’s experiments, Darget’s “thoughts photographic pictures” and other pioneering photographer’s works attempting to demonstrate the reality of certain supernatural phenomena. These pictures, beside the historical and ethnographic interest, are strongly suggestive abstract pieces, and Wagstaff explained that the he had collected them to satisfy his own desire to contemplate and explore the “pleasure to see, as when we see people dancing from a window.” Continue reading
