Heart Chamber Orchestra: music from the heart

Heart Chamber Orchestra: Playing Music (Literally) from the Heart ::

Heart Chamber Orchestra – Pixelache from pure on Vimeo.

Heart Chamber Orchestra is an audio-visual performance during which 12 classical trained musicians control a music composition and a graphical visualization through their personal heartbeats.

The musical score is generated in real-time by the heartbeats of the musicians, who read and play this score from a computer screen placed in front of them. As a result, the installation forms a feedback loop in which the music literally “comes from the heart”. Continue reading

Live Stage: Nancy Garcia [us Miami]

Nancy Garcia :: April 9 – June 9, 2011 :: Opening: April 9; 7:00 – 10:00 pm :: Bas Fisher Invitational, 180 NE 39th Street, Suite 210, Miami, Florida.

Nancy Garcia’s interdisciplinary practice incorporates choreography, music/sound, video, performance, image making, and new media. Often slinging the viewer to the edges of performative events, Garcia draws attention to the exultant body, considering it as a site as well as a vehicle for sound and movement. For her first solo exhibition in Miami, Garcia shows a new body of work incorporating photography, a new video entitled Power Trio, and a concept audio compilation, Lover’s Alarm Clock, for which she asked artist friends to “create a sound you want your lover/s to wake up to.” Each track will be downloadable and sharable as a smartphone ringtone at www.loversalarmclock.com, and be available for listening in the gallery.

NMR Commission: “Spectral Quartet” by Woody Sullender

sullender.jpgSpectral Quartet — by Woody Sullender — is a web adaptation of the project Whispering Spectres, which will be installed at Turbulence @Pace Digital Gallery 2, April 5-29, 2011.

The audio content consists of filtered radio signals, culled from various web streams from the Internet. These signals are being passed through many “band pass filters”, a type of equalizer that allows a small range of frequencies through while attenuating frequencies outside of this range. In effect, most of the audio signal is “erased” except for a narrow stratum of frequency material. This work highlights small, hidden musical moments that are occurring on radio, but are usually rendered inaudible by other elements in the sound. Continue reading

AudioVisuology Essays

9783865606877.jpgAudiovisuology Essays 2: Histories and Theories of Audiovisual Media and Art :: Softback :: 452 pages :: illustrated :: But it online : Cornerhouse Books ::

This is the third publication in the See This Sound project which comprises stimulating essays on the current and historical position of sound and image in art and media, and their interconnection.
The point of departure for the prominent authors was the fact that our realm of experience is today shaped by an omnipresence of audio-visual products and structures, in which the cultural image and sound production are tightly entwined with one another in terms of technology, art and market strategy.

The project See this Sound explores the current diversity and long history of these syntheses and contradictions, this linking, overlapping and sometimes also irreconcilability through the perspectives of contemporary art and art and media science.
