Live Stage: Sensory Threads [uk London]

sensorythreads.jpgSensory Threads @ Surface Tension :: June 23, 2009; 10:30 am – 4:30 pm :: The Science Museum’s Dana Centre, 165 Queen’s Gate, South Kensington, London.

Sensory Threads — by Proboscis — is a work-in-progress to develop an instrument enabling a group of people to create a soundscape reflecting their collaborative experiences in the environment. For this interactive sensory experience, we are designing sensors for detecting environmental phenomena at the periphery of human perception as well as the movement and proximity of the wearers themselves. Possible targets for the sensors may be electro-magnetic radiation, hi/lo sound frequencies, heart rate etc). The sensors’ datastreams will feed into generative audio software, creating a multi-layered and multi-dimensional soundscape feeding back the players’ journey through their environment. Variations in the soundscape reflect changes in the wearers interactions with each other and the environment around them.

spark1.jpgUpgrade! Scotland: Rob Kennedy :: November 26, 2008; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: CCA, 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow :: Free, space limited RSVP rsvp [at] mediascot.org

We are privileged to present the première of new work from Rob Kennedy followed by a discussion with the artist. The three video works were born out of a series of collaborative projects working with composers Peter Dowling, Giles Lamb, Martin Parker and Sue Tompkins. The emphasis in each of the works is the desire to integrate ideas and methods of improvisation into the video and sound production process. This evolving collaboration and dialogue continually shapes, distorts and then reshapes the direction of the work. Continue reading

Live Stage: Issue Project Room and WFMU [us Brooklyn]

sterling_basement_email.jpgIssue Project Room and WFMU present a month of collaborative concerts featuring: DJ Tony Coulter.

Tony Coulter has been on the radio in the New York City area continuously since 1985 — at one point, on three stations at once.

He has also occasionally written about music for magazines such as Ear, i/e (later e/i), and the Rail. He has way too many records.
