sonic.jpg Sonic Acts: Modulating the Human Sensory Apparatus :: March 23, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. :: Sonic Acts Festival, Michigan Theatre (Screening Room) 603 East Liberty Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104 ::

With this program we take a closer look at how artists, over the last fifty years, have been using a broad range of cinematic techniques to investigate the analog and electronically induced play at the boundaries of perception. Ranging from stroboscopic patterns and psychoacoustic drones to visual chaos and pure silence, all used techniques tickle, hypnotize or physically assault the senses resulting in hallucinating trips, exercises in abstraction, and sublime audiovisual spectacles.

Live Stage: Theremin – An Electronic Odyssey [us Brookline, MA]

leon_theremin300c.jpgTHERAMIN: AN ELECTRONIC ODYSSEY — with talk and Q&A by composer and MIT Professor of Music and Media Tod Machover and performance by orchestral thereminist Dalit Hadass Warshaw :: January 19, 2009; 7:00 pm :: Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA.

Leon Theremin made music as strange as the life he lived. In 1918, using newly discovered vacuum-tube technology, the Russian-born scientist invented a musical instrument unlike any the world had seen before: one that utilizes electronic oscillation to produce its sound and is played entirely without human contact. Theremin toured the United States and Europe giving public recitals, and became the toast of New York City’s artists and intellectuals during the roaring ’20s, rubbing elbows with such luminaries as Albert Einstein and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Continue reading

“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
