039-2009-b.jpgCronicaelectronica recently released Digital Sound Drawings by Moren Riis, 6 pieces that use direct processing of drawings into sound. The release, which is free to download, is also complimented with a limited edition set of prints from Marius Watz, where traced segments of conical shapes cause vibrantly coloured interference patterns.

Network diagrams, occlusions and eclipses of celestial bodies, and dynamic charts reminiscent of Paul Klee’s Pedological sketches all abound in Cornelius Cardew’s experimental musical scores. Continue reading

Live Stage: Derek Holzer [uk London]

TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound, inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music instruments such as the Variophone [Evgeny Scholpo (USSR) 1930], the Welte Light-Tone Organ [Edwin Emil Welte (DE) 1936], the ANS Synthesizer [Evgeny Murzin (USSR) 1958], and the Oramics system [Daphne Oram (UK) 1959].

Live Stage: Tonewheels Workshop [de Berlin]

kita1.jpgTonewheels — drawn sound and light music with Derek Holzer :: January 10, 2009; 2:00 pm :: xxxxx_micro_research [Berlin] :: Workshop fee: 12 euros :: Limited places! Please register at: m [at] 1010.co.uk

TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound, inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music inventions. Transparent tonewheels with repeating patterns are spun over light-sensitive electronic circuitry to produce sound and light pulsations and textures. This all-analog set is performed entirely live without the use of computers, using only overhead projectors as light source, performance interface and audience display. In this way, TONEWHEELS aims to open up the “black box” of electronic music and video by exposing the working processes of the performance for the audience to see. Continue reading

Live Stage: Kenji Kojima’s Subway Synesthesia [us NYC]

nys020102-1.jpgSubway Synesthesia by Kenji Kojima — the first exhibition in AC [Direct]’s Unearthed series :: November 6 – December 13, 2008 :: Opening: November 6, 2008; 6 – 8:00 pm :: AC [ Direct ], 547 W. 27th St, #519, New York City.

Since 1990, Japanese artist Kojima has been experimenting with the relationships between perception and cognition, mathematics, technology, music and art. Kojima’s series of photographs, New York City Subway, are presented as diptychs that become the material for his moving image and sound installations. These photographs, along with simple text overlays, act as a sort of eye-to-mind primer that are then dissolved into hundreds of pixels of flowing color and sound. Through RGB Music, these digital photographs are further reduced to their color pixels that are then transformed into a series of musical compositions.

“The Voice” by Art of Failure

voice1.jpgThe Voice by Art of Failure (Nicolas Maigret and Nicolas Montgermont) – The Voice arises from the diversion of a software for blind people, allowing to transform a video image into sound. The concept is used to design a tool for a performance / installation, where some objects chosen on the place become a series of instruments producing tones according to their shape and color. The performers stage objects of everyday life in a concert where the spectator is immersed « in an almost utopian relationship between visual and sound ».

The Voice software has been designed by Peter B. L. Meijer to propose an alternative way of perception for blind people. With the use of a webcam or a mobile phone, a sound transcription of the visual scene recorded by the device is synthesized. After a learning phase, this set-up allows blind people to recognize some elementary objects, and then a real space movement (link). Continue reading

Edward Zajec: ORPHICS [pl Wrocław]

orphics.jpgEdward Zajec: ORPHICS :: Opening: September 12, 2008; 6:30 pm :: Exhibition open until October 11, 2008 :: WRO Art Center :: ul. Widok 7, 50-052 Wrocław, Poland.

Orphics is a two-decades old cycle of graphical compositions inspired by music. The works are interpretations of renowned 20th century composers (Satie, Bartók, Ravel) in terms of form and color, however not in the manner of traditional animation, but through systemic transformation. The result is a relationship between elements in space and time: every frame of the compositions portrays exactly these two dimensions of sound organization of subsequent metres. Continue reading
