djspooky: Ghost World: A Story in Sound

Ghost World: A Story in Sound

Brian Eno once famously remarked that the problem with computers is that there isn’t enough Africa in them. I kind of think that its the opposite: they’re bringing the ideals of Africa: after all, computers are about connectivity, shareware, a sense of global discussion about topics and issues, the relentless density of info overload, and above all the willingness to engage and discuss it all – that’s something you could find on any street corner in Africa.

earwormcollider.jpgOhrwurmbeschleuniger / EarwormCollider: Musical Particle Accelerator (2004) by Roman Kirschner – Everybody can collide earworms in the EarwormCollider: two pieces of music are shot into each other in a microwave field and merge into a new one.

With the Ohrwurmbeschleuniger you can accelerate the general development process of Earworms. Instead of cooking food, new pieces of sticky music evolve. And it can be operated like a commercial microwave oven. You can select 2 of the 10 available pieces and start the collision. You choose the cooking program and the duration. Depending on the settings, the 2 earworms bang into each other. The result can be listened to immediately after the process. Movie. Continue reading

Reblogged Greg Smith Interviews Eduardo Navas

turntable.jpg[Image: galibier design’s quattro turntable] One of my favourite blogs over the last year has been Remix Theory, a writing project quarterbacked by media theorist and artist Eduardo Navas. Eduardo is also the author of Remediative and Reflexive Mashups in Sampling Culture, a fantastic essay that beat-juggles a variety of paradigms that range from remix history through to data mashups. Eduardo and I have been firing questions back and forth over email for a few weeks and he has provided a compelling window into his research. Continue reading

Tha Click [uk London]

bigprint.jpgTha Click :: E:vent Gallery presents a group exhibition of work by Jessica Cicconi, Jacob Cicconi, Ben Jones [Paper Rad] and Paul B. Davis, Cory Arcangel, Joe Beuckman [Beige Programming Ensemble] :: October 6 – November 11, 2007 :: Curated by Heather Corcoran :: 96 Teesdale Street, London E2 6PU.

Seizing upon the technological detritus spawned by advancements in computing over the last three decades, Beige’s inclination is to tinker with the inner workings of ubiquitous platforms past and present. Paper Rad are similarly drawn to the gaudiest fixtures of pop culture, transmogrifying and amplifying them into a kaleidoscopic parallel universe all their own. Continue reading

Harvestwork’s Video Mash Up Classes

a7a1b567239eff1e86e915451f5a5185t4.jpgVideo Mash Up with Marlon Barrios Solano – A Harvestworks Digi Camp for Ages 9 and up :: Contact: Carol Parkinson 212-431-1130 x 12 :: Where: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway Suite 602 NYC 10012 (at Houston Street) :: 212-431-1130 :: Dates: August 6 – August 17 Monday – Friday Time: 10am – 1pm.

Video mashups is a new and experimental art form where videos from multiple sources are edited together into a new video. To date, many of these video mashups have been parodies, but even music mashups are being integrated with them to make combined audio-visual media mashups. The creation of “mashups” implies the capacity to meaningfully and creatively sample and remix media content. The video mashup has come of age thanks to the likes of YouTube, Rocketboom and others.

Live Stage: Silophone [online]

silophone.jpgSilophone by Lee Rosevere :: July 16, 2007 at 9:30pm EST :: The performance, which will last 35-40 minutes, will be an exclusive live internet event, where Lee will perform new original material from his home studio and stream it to the Silophone. Log on to Silophone to participate in the performance. (Real audio required to listen, Flash required to participate).

Silophone makes use of the incredible acoustics of Silo #5 (an abandoned grain storage facility in the port of Montréal) by introducing sounds, collected from around the world using various communication technologies, into a physical space to create an instrument which blurs the boundaries between music, architecture and net art. Sounds arrive inside Silo #5 by telephone or internet. They are then broadcast into the vast concrete grain storage chambers inside the Silo. Continue reading

Air Waves

airwaves.jpgAir Waves, by artafterscience, is an interactive sound piece and a work in progress. A few bugs need to be fixed, some changes made, and more functionality will be added in the coming weeks. The table above describes the actions of the various keys.

Based on John Cage’s piece Imaginary Landscape No. 4 in which he used twelve radios, Air Waves takes four stations with random loops of segments of television commercials. You now become the conductor, choosing which ones you want to play as well. The pitch and volume can be controlled in increments, but this soon will be done so that the change is continuous by holding down the appropriate key. Variations on the piece will be done in collaboration with a few composers/musicians over the coming months.

ANALOG arts ensemble

galapagos07.jpgANALOG arts ensemble :: Amsterdam · Baltimore · Los Angeles · Kansas City · Nagoya · New York · Omaha · Portland ::

ANALOG arts ensemble is a network of artists and musicians that is rapidly making its mark on the contemporary music scene. With an universal sensibility, ANALOG programs have consistently edged classical music into new terrain, where concerts are organically shaped by an unpredictable array of artistic disciplines. A typical event might offer Stockhausen’s music alongside Bjork’s while the audience roams around the performance space, observing isolated musicians as objets d’art. Continue reading
