With Road Music, the music played on the car HiFi is generated entirely by the car itself: vibrations of the car on the road, recognizable movements (accelerations, gear changes, bends etc.) and the passing landscape.

Reblogged Recomputing Space

recomputing-space.jpgI posted about some work of Rodrigo Derteano’s last week (here) but this third work I omitted as it didn’t quite seem suitable to include with the other two works.

Recomputing Space is a sound installation which employs field recordings as a psychogeographic study of urban sound. “Following the commands and rhythm imposed by an algorithm, two persons walk around in chosen locations in the city, recording a mix of noise, language, music and the sound of their own steps. The chosen locations are public places, such as public squares, parks, tram stations etc. Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Unidentified Sound Object

uso_live.jpgUnidentified Sound Object (U.S.O.) is an experimental electroacoustic evolving organism. It builds on cinematic scale to create an abstract theatrical experience in which electronic floes replace the traditional performer.

Born from the fusion of works by two experimental electronic musicians — Matteo Milani and Federico PlacidiU.S.O.’s sound spans highly abstract digital music, to electroacoustic music. U.S.O. develops through the exploration of elementary particles arranged and organized in clouds of discrete and punctiform events, until they compose structures of extensive polymorphic and spatial complexity.
