Structure, Process and Perception of a River

residency.jpgBinauralmedia and Nodar Artist Residency Center announce: Paivascapes #1 Structure, Process and Perception of a River :: February – October 2010 :: International Open Call for Art Projects — Deadline: September 30, 2009.

The Nodar Artist Residency Program for 2010 will have a single aggregating subject: the Paiva River. Throughout the year, from winter to autumn, several multidisciplinary art projects (having sound as a central element) will be developed in a context-specific perspective, interacting with the river’s different geographical areas, from its spring to its mouth. 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

Novi_sad North American Tour

noramtour_2009.jpgNovi_sad’s North American TourNovi_sad (Thanasis Kaproulias, b. 1980) graduated from the Economic University of Piraues. He lives and works in Athens, Greece. Influenced by the pioneers of audio assault, he began generating sounds in 2005. Amplified environmental recordings, drone manipulations, structured ambient soundscapes, microtones vs overtones, all come together in a hyper structure of iconoclastic form.

Novi_sad’s artistic output displays a high level of technical ability, as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of location. The strength of his soundscapes works in the same elaborateness for the whole creation process, starting from a basis of very strong conceptualism, the intense examination of field recordings over the actual composition work, to the point of performing back the result onto location. Every sound that occurs is treated with a sculptural integrity and his sonic power operates on a level in which the audience participates as transcendental listeners. Continue reading

Atlas of Emotion Stream [it Napoli]

dalo.jpgRoberto Paci Dalo: Atlas of Emotion Stream :: April 18 – May 25, 2009 :: Palazzo delle Arti Napoli, via dei Mille 60, 80122 Napoli Italy.

Roberto Paci Dalo’s newest work is inspired by Giuliana Bruno’s book Atlas of Emotion published in New York in 2002. The installation is made out of a large black and white projection and sound. The sound is immersive also using subwoofers for particularly low frequencies reproduction. That puts the visitor/traveler in the center of the perception field. Sounds are made out of field recordings and electronic sounds. The project is conceived on three different formats: installation, film screening, and live set. Continue reading

Quiet American: Global Field Recordings

tickets.jpgAaron Ximm made his first work from field recordings in the fall of 1998. He recorded musicians, trains, moving water, crickets, monks, markets, metalwork, tired animals, and drunken tourists. The earliest work on his Quiet American site is the result of his discovery of ways of working with that sound as sole medium.

“Later,” as he writes on the site, “it became clear that it was important for me to apply the techniques I was learning to the sounds that define my home, the San Francisco Bay area. In 1999 I recorded during a trip to Fiji. Continue reading

Under Voices: Les Voix de la Tour Eiffel

chinablue.jpgUnder Voices: Les Voix de la Tour Eiffel — by China Blue — is a CD compilation of sound pieces based on actual vibrations and binaural recordings of the Eiffel Tower. In addition to 8 songs, there is a limited and signed edition thumb drive that includes 23 sound files for you to play with. You can make something and submit it for possible inclusion on the next CD. The thumb drive is presented in a cool steel box that can also hold 5 CDs. You can listen to samples here.

The organization in charge of running the Tower gave us access to the monument to document it’s ambient acoustics and vibrations – the intrinsic sounds of 7300 tons of 2,500,000 rivets and 18,038 pieces of steel moving in the wind and in response to environmental changes, as well as the sonic environment of the 30,000 people who visit it daily as they move from the ground to the pinnacle.

Live Stage: Cuckoo Radio [us Pittsfield, MA]

Cuckoo Radio, Caged Songs Sung (Tick Tock Tick) by Ven Voisey — created for the City of Pittsfield’s 2008/9 Artscape exhibition :: November 29, 2008 – September 2009 :: Opening: November 29; 4:00 – 6:00 pm :: Ferrin Gallery, 437 North Street, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

A clock: twelve cages sing twelve songs for twelve hours of the day. A flock: which has temporarily gathered up high on a lamp post, as birds are wont to do, and every hour, on the hour, they sing a song. These songs, composed of recorded bird calls and simple synthesized tones, are warnings, expressions of joy, crooning love songs, mating calls, questions, frustrated cries… Simultaneously they’re mysterious offerings and homages to the wind, the air, and to the things that slip through the rungs of a cage.

Jorinde Voigt – Matrix & Lemniscate [de Kőln]

voigt1.jpgJorinde Voigt – Matrix [Notations] with Patric Catani & Chris Imler (Composition) and Lemniscate / ∞ [Acoustic Cluster] ::until December 20, 2008 :: Galerie Christian Lethert, Antwerpener Strasse 4, 50672 Kőln, Germany.

Matrix & Lemniscate is a unique collaboration between the artist Jorinde Voigt, and composers Patric Catani and Chris Imler. The lemniscate is, fundamentally a mechanism for the infinite (∞). A lemniscus or ‘ribbon’ that chases itself in a figure of eight describes the repeated and unending journey of the unbounded. Early Indian thinkers were quick to assert the abstract powers of infinities by recognising that when adding or removing parts to infinity, infinity would always remain. Jorinde Voigt draws structures energised by real and imagined possibilities to investigate finite boundaries of systems. Continue reading
