Live Stage: We Are Hacks: Music and Visual Performance at HOPE [us NYC]

wearehacks

From Peter Kirn at createdigitalmusic.com: “8-bit and robots and odd Max and Reaktor patches and custom visual software and visualizations of data packets and sound made from plants and mutant trumpets and gloves for DJing and laptop music – we’ve got quite a lineup here in New York this week.

Friday night, a live audiovisual lineup from the worlds of createdigitalmusic.com / createdigitalmotion.com invades the HOPE conference, aka Hackers on Planet Earth, the three day-long convergence of tech hacking. $10, open to all, 11-2a Friday July 18 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York. It’s a live digital, technological variety show in a doomed NYC landmark hotel with an audience of famous and infamous hackers. (Think Kevin Mitnick and MythBusters’ Adam Savage and Steven Levy, all in one place.)

Live Stage: DIY sound-workshop [de Munich]

jo-700.jpgAnnouncing DIY sound-workshop: Constructing live electronics with Jo FRGMNT Grys (de) :: March 25 – 28, 2008 :: Kunstarkaden, Sparkassenstr.3, Munich :: Registration Deadline: March 15, 2008.

The workshop is focused on the construction of sustainable, customized and networked instruments. Participants are invited to build up to three different musical devices: 1) Powerful analog Special Noise Unit (SNU), a kind of chaos – musical – noise – generator – touch – oscillator-instrument. (It’s even produces FM radio); 2) Simple step-sequencer SEQ8 to give electricity certain patterns; and 3) Mini-FM-transmitter to conquer your proximity. Continue reading

Hands-on, Interview: Stribe Multi-Touch Controller

2276257092_e1695a19a4.jpgOnce the domain of the few, creating and customizing sophisticated DIY controllers is now more accessible than ever. That means, if you can’t find what you want, and you’re ambitious and knowledgeable enough, you go make your own. Josh Boughey was impressed by the Monome enough to buy one — but the Monome, a grid of on/off buttons, doesn’t provide any kind of variable control. So Josh built his own, combining a series of parallel touch strips with LED indicators. (The lights are the tricky part, requiring an obscene number of connections.) Continue reading

Live Stage: tiny noise [ca Montreal]

tn_justice_fly.jpgTiny Noise :: February 26, 2008; 8pm :: ZOOBIZARRE – 6388 St. Hubert, Montreal :: [metro Beaubien, orange line] :: with performances by:

Justice Yeldham (AUS) – What’s been described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is the unique work of Justice Yeldham who has an obsession with using sheets of broken glass as his musical instrument. Amplifying the sheets using a high end transducer designed for grand pianos, he presses his face against the surface whist employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries.

Reblogged Rhizome News: Music Man

2007dl004-0105.jpgDouglas Repetto is a legend in New York City, where he has fostered a thriving electronic music and new media community. He is founder of the Dorkbot discussion series (which now has local branches around the world), the ArtBots Robot Talent Show, and Organism, a collective of people “making art with living systems.” By day, he is Director of Research at Columbia University’s famous Computer Music Center, and it’s unlikely he’ll ever be able to live down the glory of being deemed “sexiest geek” by Wired. But all of Repetto’s accolades and extracurricular activities unfold from his position as a respected artist whose captivating installations appear deceptively simple, only to convey complex sonic experiences.

Mr. Resistor

mr_resistor.jpgMr. Resistor is an innovative class in which students are taught how to create musical instruments from found electronics and other objects. Armed with two toy robots named Freddy and Teddy, a violin with a bow made out of cassette tape, and a synthesizer assembled from a 1960s electric guessing game, last weekend students at Parsons the New School for Design took to the stage to perform rock songs they created out of these and other found objects.

The performance took place at The Openhouse in SoHo and was born out of a burgeoning DIY music movement where artists take the debris of everyday life, for example an amp made from a Ritz cracker box and instruments made from Gameboys, irons and electronic toys, and turn them into musical instruments to play at events such as Handmade Music Night and Music for People and Thingamajigs.
