Honor Harger: A History of the Universe in Sound

Artist-technologist Honor Harger listens to the weird and wonderful noises of stars and planets and pulsars. In her work, she tracks the radio waves emitted by ancient celestial objects and turns them into sound, including “the oldest song you will ever hear,” the sound of cosmic rays left over from the Big Bang.

During the decade leading up to the first World War, composers such as Debussy, Schoenberg, Scriabin, and Stravinsky were writing music in active dialogue with the social upheavals, intellectual currents, and political events of their day, embracing the same radical spirit that inspired their colleagues in the visual arts. This gallery program highlights selections of music from 1910–18 performed by Typical Music, an ensemble comprised of New York New Music virtuosi Todd Reynolds (violin), Ashley Bathgate (cello) and Vicky Chow (piano). A talk by American composer R. Luke DuBois precedes the concert.

Live Stage: Lecture/Presentation/Discussion by C-drík Fermont [de Berlin]

188022_171307832923837_1094252_n.jpgLecture/Presentation/Discussion by C-drík Fermont :: on history of experimental/electronic music in Africa and Asia :: Thursday, June 9, 2011 from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. :: NK, Elsen str 52 2HH (second backyard) Neukoelln 12059, Berlin, Germany ::

Halim El-Dabh composed his first experimental piece in Cairo in 1944, his work can be related to other pioneers such as Luigi Russolo, John Cage, Walter Ruttmann, and Pierre Schaeffer. The official history of experimental and electronic music is mostly centered around three starting poles : Paris, Cologne, New York and then everything seems to have spread all over the Western civilization. This is what C-drík learned when he studied electro-acoustic music at the conservatory. Most contemporary media introduces us to Western electronic music as if nothing else existed, the West is self-centered and consciously or not often denies the others the right to express themselves.

Live Stage: Synchronator [es Barcelona]

synchronator.jpgSynchronator by Gert-Jan Prins + Bas van Koolwijk :: December 20, 2010; 7:30 – 10:00 pm :: Nivell Zero, Fundació Suñol. Rosselló, 240, Barcelona.

Since the early years of video art, works have been made which do not actually produce a standard TV signal waveform and therefore cannot be directly recorded. To overcome this problem Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins have created their own hardware to get non-video signals accepted by regular video equipment.

Aided by current digital and analogue means and drawing from the tradition of experimental video pioneers such as Nam June Paik and Woody and Steina Vasulka, Koolwijk and Prins shared their technical know-how and with their Synchronator project set out to tackle the difficulties concerning the recording of complicated, merged and distorted video and audio signals.
