For her performance on WKCR, Parkins will be playing amplified objects, electronic accordion, and laptop electronics/live processing.

Reblogged “ATOM” by Robert Henke, Christoph Bauder

balloons.jpgVideo, Interview: ATOM by Robert Henke, Christoph Bauder – Musical Balloon Sculpture by Peter Kirn — Inside a computer, digital music is entirely unseen.

Flashing in hypnotic patterns and moving into different configurations, accompanied by live laptop music from Henke (aka Monolake), music and visuals become an inseparable fusion.

ATOM received its North American premiere at Montreal’s MUTEK in May. That turned out to be perfect programming, as it placed ATOM in a week that featured complementary work from artists Artificiel. Continue reading
