New Collaborative Media Arts Lab [uk London]

tint.jpgTINT opens its Arts Lab in May 2010 to provide an online platform for artists to present and develop ideas through critical feedback and open discourse. Based on a framework of constructive critique and knowledgeable support, participating artists are invited to explore their work within the boundaries of media art. Participating artists will be required to develop their project in their own workspace, documenting their progress thoroughly at all stages from conceptional to realization in a dedicated blog. With the labs focus on the documentation of these usually opaque processes we enable a dedicated team of artists, theorist and practitioners as well as the wider community to respond to the project and provide thereby the possibility for artistic development. Once all the first round projects are completed, they will be jointly presented in a TINT curated event in a London based venue. Continue reading

Syzygryd: Public Sculpture

Syzygryd Software Preview from nicole aptekar on Vimeo.

Syzygryd is a town square for the collaborative creation of music. It’s a public space, it’s a sculpture, and it’s a professional musical instrument. It’s the most beautiful expression we can imagine of the joy we take in community, music, technology, fire, sculpture and architecture.

Three large custom hardware grid sequencers. Each controls a single instrument and they share a clock, so they’re all synchronized. By controlling time, pitch, and harmony, these devices make it easy for people with no musical training or talent to create melodious compositions. Continue reading

Live Stage: Turbulence @ Issue Project Room [us NYC]

turb_at_issue.jpgTurbulence.org Presents Two World-Premiers at Issue Project Room: The Occupants by Stephan Moore + Moments of Inertia by R. Luke Dubois, with Todd Reynolds :: April 9, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Issue Project Room, At the Old American Can Factory, 232 3rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY :: Admission: $10 — Tickets.

The Occupants — by Stephan Moore — is a generative composition with some aspects that can be influenced through single- or multi-user interaction. Moore has used the piece to search for answers to both profound and insipid questions, such as: What does it mean to compose a “site-specific” composition when the site is the internet? Can a generative algorithm be imparted with a sense of long-term form that is also not pre-determined? How successfully can humans be programmed to be good collaborators with software algorithms, towards the latters’ goals? Continue reading

Live Stage: Sewing Sonifications [us Seattle, WA]

bodle.jpgCarrie Bodle: Sewing Sonifications Performance :: October 10, 2009; 2:00 – 6:00 pm :: Westlake Park, Seattle, WA.

Visual and sound artist Carrie Bodle will create a five-channel sound installation and sewing performance sonifying data from an ecosystem model developed by UW oceanographic scientist Dr. Neil Banas. Sound is translated from data, then visualized and made tactile by the artist embroidering the combined waveform into a continuous sound wave.

This computer model simulates the growth and consumption of plankton in the ocean ecosystem along the Washington coast during summer 2005. The five sound channels broadcast five dimensions in this data: Continue reading

Ocean Voices: Share your voice

ocean.jpgWhat is Ocean Voices? Sound artist Halsey Burgund and marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols joined forces to collect the voices of people around the world recounting their personal experiences with the ocean. Combined with music written by Halsey, these voices will soon become audio collages which listeners can create to suit their own preferences. Help them by sharing your voice and spreading the words of all participants around the globe.

The ocean surrounds us and sustains us. We can only preserve life in the ocean by working together as a global community. Ocean Voices brings together voices from around the world for everyone to hear. Open your mouth; open your ears; join the Ocean Revolution here. Record your voice. Become a part of Ocean Voices.

Live Stage: Quartet Without Pyramid Scheme [us NYC]

qwops-flyer.jpgQuartet Without Pyramid SchemeJordan Topiel Paul, Reed Evan Rosenberg, Eric Laska, Richard F. Kamerman :: September 5-26, 2009; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Floor (between 32 & 33 Sts.), Industry City, Brooklyn, NY.

Quartet without Pyramid Scheme is a collaborative sound installation inhabiting the gallery and lounge spaces at Diapason. Its sound is the sum of a rotating collection of sound samples which loop continuously in unpredictable variations. Through its duration, the four artists successively alter this sound by recording and integrating new samples to be looped, some of which replace old ones. The sound content heard at any point in the piece will be the product of this collaboration. Continue reading

Storage in Collaborative Networked Art

networked.jpgRead | Write Storage in Collaborative Networked Art by Jason Freeman — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: This chapter explores the role of storage in media art and, more specifically, its role in collaborative creativity within the field of networked music. Through a series of paired analyses of works that differentially emphasize transmission and storage or which employ different approaches to storage, the chapter discusses different opportunities, challenges, and issues related to storage in collaborative, networked art. Music by the Rova Saxophone Quartet and by Nick Collins frames a discussion of composition and improvisation; two works by The Hub initiate an analysis of the influence of technology on network design and on collaborative models of shared material and shared control; broadcast works by Max Neuhaus introduce the concept of active storage systems; the online sites WebDrum and Jamglue raise questions about network latency and the persistency of storage; and Bicycle Built for 2,000 and Graph Theory manipulate the level of awareness of storage mechanisms by various participants.

‘The Piano Etudes Project’ A Space for Play

freeman.jpg‘The Piano Etudes Project’ A Space for Play — Review by Les Loncharich, furtherfield.org: The Piano Etudes project by Jason Freeman, with Akito Van Troyer and Jenny Lin, is a move towards opening the forbidden city of musical composition. The project is based on piano etudes, musical compositions in which the pianist can rearrange connections between some open form pieces. Site visitors are invited to create their own etudes from four short compositions by Jason Freeman. Each etude is transcribed graphically into something that resembles an organizational chart. Each visual component of the chart has a corresponding audio note pattern. The pitch of a note pattern is roughly indicated by the height of a horizontal bar that is part of the graphic. A site user can select graphic elements and arrange them on a time-line to hear the resulting sound piece. Pieces created on the site can be saved and transcribed into musical notation so that pianists can perform pieces created by site visitors. More >>
