Live Stage: D’EGG by Paul and Laska [us Long Island City, NY]

trash.jpgD’EGG by Jordan Topiel Paul and Eric Laska :: July 12, 2009; 12:00 -5:00 pm :: Free Skool, Sculpture Center’s University of Trash, 44-19 Purves St, Long Island City, NY.

Jordan Topiel Paul and Eric Laska are pleased to present D’EGG, a new site-specific multi-channel sound installation and transmission piece, on view as part of an afternoon of experimental and electroacoustic music. The installation exists in three parts and uses samples from the recording, broadcast, and playback equipment on-site as sound source material. Parked outside the Sculpture Center, a makeshift broadcast truck is turned into a dense, continuous sound environment. Two channels of this installation are then broadcast over low-power FM and Internet radio (accessible here). Inside the Sculpture Center, a third site receives this transmission on a boom box; in this same space, several small loops are heard underneath a play pit of foam blocks. Continue reading

A tribute to a small river that is a symbol of a region that (still) can live in a well-balanced interaction with nature. Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: “Hard Data” by R. Luke DuBois

harddata.jpgTurbulence Commission: Hard Data by R. Luke DuBois [Needs Flash plugin and speakers; wait for data to load] Hard Data is a data-mining, sonification, and visualization project that uses statistics from the American military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq as source material for an interactive audiovisual composition based around an open-source “score” of events. Using Xenakis’ understanding of formalized music as a starting point, DuBois draws upon a variety of statistical data ranging from the visceral (civilian deaths, geospatial renderings of military actions) to the mundane (fiscal year budgets for the war) to generate a dataset that can be used for any number of audiovisual compositions.
