Splice: Social Music Mixing

splicelogo.pngSplice Re-Mixes the Music Mashup.

A new social music mixing site is re-thinking interactive audio. Splice, which is still in beta, is a community site that encourages users to submit raw sounds. Users can then build songs out of each other’s sounds. Each creation can be remixed, rearranged, deconstructed and completely re-worked by anyone else in the Splice community.

Splice’s coolest feature is the browser-based sequencer. Songs are assembled and mixed without ever leaving the browser. You can also see details about the users who contributed each track as you mix. Continue reading

Tree Wave

p_denmark.jpgtree wave is a Dallas based band that makes shoegazy pop music and video using obsolete 70’d and 80’s computer and videogame gear, accompanied by female vocals. The code to drive the music and video is our own, and it’s all dirty assembly language. Music comes from Commodore 64s, an old PC FM sound card (OPL3), and a dot matrix printer, and video is all Atari 2600. Our music is noisy pop, often with unusual song structure, and the video ranges from abstract color noise to actual hacked and deconstructed Atari 2600 games.

Live Stage: The Simultaneous Translator [online]

interface_sm.jpgTurbulence Commission: The Simultaneous Translator by John Roach and Willy Whip [Requires Windows OS] LIVE PERFORMANCE: Sunday April 15; 12:00 PM EST to 3:00 PM EST [Mac users can listen via the player of their choice].

“The Simultaneous Translator” (SimTrans) is a Windows based audio interface that enables anyone to load audio streams and manipulate them in real time on the Internet. SimTrans makes the delays and fluctuations of the Internet visible and audible. The Internet becomes your collaborator as you create your mix, and the instability you usually try to avoid becomes a tool for creation. Distance and delay are manifest within the interface numerically and as a series of sliding heads; there is also a link to Google Earth where you can watch the dynamic flight of data travel between yourself and the audio source.

“SimTrans” is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Murray G. and Beatrice H. Sherman Charitable Trust. Continue reading

Live Stage: Radio Wonderland and Luke Dubois [NY]


Armed with soft- and hard-wares of their own invention, electronic composers Joshua Fried (aka Radio Wonderland) and Luke Dubois recycle the detritus of our mass-market culture into wild expressions of new media music. Armed with an 1980s-era boom box and an array of bizarro MIDI controllers (fashioned out of a steering wheel and old shoes), the antenna of Radio Wonderland receives messages from FM radio, transforms them in real time and rebroadcasts into rhythm-heavy improvisations. Feet have been known to dance.

Luke DuBois uses original software to deconstruct the greatest hits of modern culture—Oscar-winning films and Billboard Number One hits—into mind bending a/v abstractions. Nick Hallett and Zach Layton fill in the blanks with music fit for academic curricula by Terry Riley, Boris Blacher, Luciano Berio, Laurie Anderson, Meredith Monk, Olivier Messiaen, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Yoko Ono, and Arthur Russell.

Onliness v1.0.1: Open Source Music

pinkcd_plastbag2_1.gifWhen one speaks of ‘open source culture,’ they are typically referring to the social conditions created in an atmosphere of sharing. Open source software is not only freely available, its source code is also revealed to encourage collective authorship, improvement, and personalization. The increasing popularity of such publishing contexts has led to a broader movement of activists, coders, lawyers, artists, and others questioning contemporary copyright law, and challenging the ‘code’ that prohibits collaboration. American sound artist Demon Doctor carries these concerns over into his work, equating music with language and sounds with letters, ultimately asking ‘who owns the alphabet.’ Continue reading
