To find a dorkbot near you, visit here.

Live Stage: Matt Rogalsky [us Brooklyn]

938370.jpgDiapason presents: Memory Like Water — a sound installation by Matt Rogalsky :: Saturdays, January 3 – 31, 2009; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Diapason, 882 Third Avenue, 10th floor, Brooklyn (Sunset Park).

In Memory Like Water, which revisits the idea of water as a metaphor for memory, the voices of people recounting their earliest memories are used to shape the sounds of water in motion. In each of eight loudspeakers, an individual is paired with a watery location (streams, rivers and lakes recorded in Ontario, Vermont and New York State). The streams of sound are continuous; for the most part the original voice recordings are submerged, and used to shape the water by imposing on it their frequency content, rather than being heard directly. Whispers of the voices occasionally become directly audible, however, especially when listening to one speaker at close range. Continue reading

Live Stage: Rob Kennedy [uk Glasgow]

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

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: Rolf Julius [us Brooklyn]

warumgrun.jpgDiapason gallery for sound and intermedia presents Music, under your Feet by Rolf Julius — installation with objects, sound, and video :: November 22 – December 20, 2008; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Opening: November 22, 6:00 – 8:00 pm :: 882 Third Avenue (between 32nd and 33rd Street), 10th floor, Brooklyn, NY.

Rolf Julius integrates acoustic and visual coordinates in his installative, synaesthetic concepts. Far removed from elaborate electronics, he works with simple things and sounds of everyday life, an aesthetic and acoustic minimalism with the simplest use of cassettes and loudspeakers, effecting a concentrated perception…” – Rudolf Frieling Continue reading

Live Stage: Wet Sounds [uk Brighton]

wetsounds.jpgWet Sounds– The worlds only underwater sound art gallery returns to Brighton for a special session at Brighton and Hove’s White Night :: October 25, 2008; 9:00 pm – midnight :: Prince Regent Pool, Church Street, Brighton :: for the price of pool admission.

Underwater speakers submerged in the pool will play sounds and music to an audience floating or swimming through the water. Sound travels four times quicker in water than in air so the sound is perceived not only by the ears but also by the bones and the body. Session One is undersea sounds for the under 14s. Later on the grown ups can immerse themselves in a listening gallery of international sound and some leisurely Aquadelica.
