Net_Music_Weekly: Moori – Audience Participatory Performance

moori.pngMoori: Audience Participatory Performance :: May 14, 2011; 9:00 pm + May 20, 2011; 7:00 pm :: Barkroom, Parsons, 2 W. 13th St. Ground Floor (corner of 5th Ave), New York, NY.

Moori, by Haeyoung Kim, is an interactive audience participatory audio-visual performance. By incorporating multiple modes of messaging on a mobile phone, users tell their stories to guided questions by the performer. User data is processed to generate algorithmic audio and visuals while creating a larger narrative. This collaboration creates dialog among the performer and audience members and suggests new possibilities that can exist through the combination of algorithmic animation, audio and language.

Net_Music_Weekly: Hertzian Rain [us Buffalo]

hertzian_rain.jpgHertzian Rain by Mark Shepard :: February 13, 2011; 3:00 – 5:00 pm :: Burchfield Penney Art Center, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, New York.

Live sound from multiple sound makers is streamed from a set of wireless transmitters placed at opposing sides of an urban space. These transmitters broadcast these audio streams locally on the same radio frequency to a group of participants wearing wireless headphones tuned to this frequency. Because the transmitters broadcast on the same local frequency, a zone of interference is created where multiple audio streams compete for signal dominance.

Participants carry umbrellas made of electromagnetic field (EMF) shielding fabric that enable them to actively shape the surrounding environment of radio waves. By orienting the umbrella in different ways, one is able to filter the interfering radio signals and select a single audio stream to listen to. Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Locustream Promenade

promenade.jpgLocustream Promenade — @ Festival MIMI, July 1-14, 2010, Marseille, Iles du Frioul, France — is a sound art installation composed of sonic beams (10 parabolic dishes equipped with sound speakers and small computers). The parabolas are suspended in the public space in such a way that a visitor only hears the sound from the beam when he or she is directly underneath it. Each beam plays a different stream from the Locustream project. The live streamed sounds are soundscapes coming from remote locations through the Internet. The space where the paraboles are hung is virtually connected to geo-distant spaces. By moving from one beam to another the audience walks through audio windows opening out onto a worldwide soundscape. Invited to take part in this experience the listener becomes conscious his or her immediate surroundings in a new way, perception of the local audio environment is modified. Continue reading

Live Stage: SleepWalks Performance (Sleepover) [us NYC]

sleepwalk.jpgSleepWalks Performance (Sleepover, please bring bedding) :: June 5, 9:00 pm – June 6, 9:00 am :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Fl., New York City :: RSVP: lemurz66 [at] yahoo.com.

An overnight, live electronic music performance by Lee Pembleton and Andrea Williams. Culling sounds from their audio files of field recordings, live samples of the room resonance, and various electronically processed acoustic instruments, they create an extended musical composition for the entirety of a night for an audience that sleeps in the performance space. Pembleton and Williams intend to create soundwalks for dreamers. SleepWalks first premiered as a shorter ‘catnap’ at Issue Project Room in NYC in early 2009 and since then as dream-filled overnight performances in the San Francisco Bay Area, including at Mills College as part of The Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival. A listening sample can be found here (link on right side of page). Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Variable 4 [uk Kent]

variable4.jpgVariable 4 by James Bulley and Daniel Jones :: May 22-23, 2010; noon-noon :: Dungeness, Kent, TN29 9ND.

Since the earliest civilizations, a complex relationship has existed between human society and the weather systems that define the world around us. We make sense of seasonal cycles through rituals and folklore, passing down ways of harnessing the natural elements whilst constructing defenses against those which threaten our existence.

Variable 4 transforms these weather patterns into a living musical composition with the same unpredictability as the elements themselves. Using meteorological sensors connected to a custom software environment developed by the artists, the wild weather conditions of the Kent coastland act as composer, navigating through a map of 24 specifically written movements. Every aspect of the piece, from broad harmonic progressions down to individual notes and timbres, is influenced by changes in the environment: wind speed, rainfall, solar radiation, humidity, tropospheric variance, temperature, and more.
