NMR Commission: “Voices from the Paradise Network” by John Hudak

hudak_300.jpgVoices from the Paradise Network by John Hudak, with Flash programming by erational.org [Needs Flash Player and speakers on] – John writes: My mother-in-law passed away recently, reminding me of a technique that a parapsychologist named Dr. Konstantin Raudive (1906-1974) used to record what he purported to be voices of deceased spirits. With the amount of information moving around on the internet these days, and the passing of my mother-in-law, who I thought would want to get in touch (if possible), I thought I’d give Raudive’s technique a try within the digital realm.

Nicolas Clauss’ MMIX*

pic_art_web03.jpgMMIX by Nicolas Clauss :: Japan Media Art Festival, National Art Center, Tokyo and online at flyingpuppet, a collection of digital tableaus started in 2001.

MMIX* [Roman numerals for 2009] is a timeless work in four interactive tableaus, where each visitor is invited to follow with his eyes and ears what his mouse gestures reveal. At each caress, sound and visual elements get randomly muddled up on the screen creating always new combinations. A work travelling between real and surreal, dream and mind, rage and fright, where humour and drama are cruelly mixed to suggest the sad patterns of our contemporary reality.

Live Stage: 1,444 minutes – a generative net.art and sound work

sloan_self_2.jpgJason Sloan: ONEthousand.four.- hundredANDfortyFour.minutes :: February 2, 2010 at 4:34 a.m. to February 3, 2010 at 4:34 a.m. :: at: http://jasonsloan.com/1444

1,444 minutes is the precise time it takes to move from one day to the next. Within this small space of time, it’s possible for a personal or even global change to occur. While many of us attempt to plan our lives and predict our individual or situational future, much of what happens is left to unknown devices. In the same vein, the upcoming project ONEthousand.four. – hundredANDfortyFour.minutes is a new generative net.art and sound work that is left to an unknown author to score. It is an emergent or behavioral musical system that commits to few parameters. Composer John Cage worked with a similar system he called “chance operations”. By using the I Ching to make compositional and artistic decisions, Cage was able to free himself and the work from personal likes, dislikes and bias. Continue reading

PROCESS Festival Berlin

process.jpgPROCESS Festival Berlin :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: January 2, 2010.

PROCESS Festival Berlin is now accepting proposals for performances and new-media work, to be shown at our 2 day festival in mid-March 2010. The Festival seeks to highlight new and compelling work in the field of generative or process music – focusing on sound pieces which are inspired by or emulate algorithms, biology, or other defined systems.

From scores generated from nature (Mamoru Fujieda’s “Patterns of Plants”) or mathematics (John Cage’s “Sonatas and Interludes”), to interactives which allow users to create music (Brian Eno’s Bloom for iPhone) or a system as simple as 2 tape recorders (“It’s Gonna Rain” by Steve Reich), this space has enjoyed a compelling history.

Storage in Collaborative Networked Art

networked.jpgRead | Write Storage in Collaborative Networked Art by Jason Freeman — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: This chapter explores the role of storage in media art and, more specifically, its role in collaborative creativity within the field of networked music. Through a series of paired analyses of works that differentially emphasize transmission and storage or which employ different approaches to storage, the chapter discusses different opportunities, challenges, and issues related to storage in collaborative, networked art. Music by the Rova Saxophone Quartet and by Nick Collins frames a discussion of composition and improvisation; two works by The Hub initiate an analysis of the influence of technology on network design and on collaborative models of shared material and shared control; broadcast works by Max Neuhaus introduce the concept of active storage systems; the online sites WebDrum and Jamglue raise questions about network latency and the persistency of storage; and Bicycle Built for 2,000 and Graph Theory manipulate the level of awareness of storage mechanisms by various participants.

‘The Piano Etudes Project’ A Space for Play

freeman.jpg‘The Piano Etudes Project’ A Space for Play — Review by Les Loncharich, furtherfield.org: The Piano Etudes project by Jason Freeman, with Akito Van Troyer and Jenny Lin, is a move towards opening the forbidden city of musical composition. The project is based on piano etudes, musical compositions in which the pianist can rearrange connections between some open form pieces. Site visitors are invited to create their own etudes from four short compositions by Jason Freeman. Each etude is transcribed graphically into something that resembles an organizational chart. Each visual component of the chart has a corresponding audio note pattern. The pitch of a note pattern is roughly indicated by the height of a horizontal bar that is part of the graphic. A site user can select graphic elements and arrange them on a time-line to hear the resulting sound piece. Pieces created on the site can be saved and transcribed into musical notation so that pianists can perform pieces created by site visitors. More >>

NMR Commission: “ItSpace” by Peter Traub

itspace_3001.jpgItSpace, by Peter Traub, creates a network of pages within the social networking site MySpace. Instead of people, the pages feature everyday household objects from the artist’s house. Each page has a photo of the object, a description, and most importantly, a 1-minute piece composed of samples of the object being struck, resonated, and so forth. All the pages, or objects, are ‘friends’ with each other, so that visitors who discover one object may jump to the others to see their profiles and hear their sounds. Visitors to the site are invited to create new ItSpace pages with pieces made from their own household objects and link those in as ‘friends’ of the original set. Listen to an Interview >> Continue reading
