Live Stage: urban sound stories [at Vienna]

kunst2.jpgurban sound stories, curated by Gruenrekorder; online at kunstradio and Gruenrekorder :: on air @ Ö1 Kunstradio, Sundays 11:03 – 11:45 pm (CET).

urban sound stories is a five-part series of sounds and photographs as soundscapes of European cities. The artists participating in this “curated by”project were selected by Gruenrekorder, a German based organization and label for phonography, field recording and soundscape.

The exploration of artificial and natural space within the city takes place within the same space of time. Continue reading

Live Stage: Toni Dove’s Lucid Possession [us NYC]

dove.jpgToni Dove’s Lucid Possession :: January 15, 2009; 8:30 pm and January 16; 10:00 pm :: HERE Arts Center, 145 6th Ave., New York City.

Lucid Possession, the uncanny manifestation of a virtual multiple personality, combines music, text, dimensional robotic screens and projections to create a character, like an instrument, that speaks, sings, and dances. On-stage performers Toni Dove and composer, Mari Kimura control the entity’s physical and virtual movements, singing and speaking databases, in a form like cinematic bunraku. This short demo is a trio for two humans and one virtual entity. Lucid Possession is Winner of The Eugene McDermott Award, M.I.T. Continue reading

A Forest of Lines – Pierre Huyghe [au Sydney]

forest.jpgA Forest of Lines – Pierre Huyghe with music by Laura Marling :: July 9 – 10, 2008; noon to noon :: Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia.

At the Sydney Opera House a unique experience occurs throughout the course of a day and a night. An event with no beginning and no end, no division between stage and public, no specified path to take – it is a theatre liberated from rules. From the stalls to the circles to the stage, a forest of trees has grown and spread throughout the entire Concert Hall. The light of dawn barely shines on this valley obscured by clouds. This is an in-between reality, an image of an environment, a fact that appears for a brief moment just before vanishing.

Someone walking between the trees tells a story. As the voice draws the audience into the forest, the lyrics of the song tell how to find a way out; out of the Concert Hall and into the reality of a place elsewhere. Continue reading

LocoSound- A Sound Journey

locosound.jpgLocoSound is a flux audio experience that is synchronized with the landscape viewed from a train window. Through a system of GPS tracking, the audience can tune into a radio frequency when boarding a train wagon and become part of an audio visual experience that is based on: (1) a sound experience that has been created for a specific train visual (the landscape between Zurich and Basel for example); (2) a system that is sensitive and responsive to any delays, unexpected stops or other real-time changes in the train ride. The experience is therefore not linear but rather an interactive and responsive, taking into account the singular experience of a particular train ride. The audio concept allows for a new type of music composition, that can also include narratives. Continue reading

Sonic Fragments: Narrative and Mediation in Sound Art

blueskytrainalone.jpgSonic Fragments: Narrative and Mediation in Sound Art :: Princeton University, Princeton, NJ :: March 28-29, 2008 :: Call for Works: Deadline: February 15, 2008

We hear while we are in the womb, long before we see. For the rest of our lives, hearing essentially precedes the rest of the sensorium, as we move through a world of sonic fragments which affect us phenomenally and emotionally but of which we are often unaware. These fragments are mediated by our environment, our bodies, our individual and collective memories, and the technologies that pervade contemporary life: from books to radio to television to iPods. Continue reading

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.

Landscape Denatured: Digitizing the Wild

landscape_digitized.jpgLandscape Denatured: Digitizing the Wild by Eric Alan Kabisch [PDF]: ABSTRACT: This paper presents motivation and documentation of four technologically enabled artworks. These artworks explore ways in which digital technologies impact society and culture, focusing particularly on the impacts of information technologies on physical and cultural geography. A framework is provided for analyzing these works of art. This framework addresses the impacts of technology as a three-part cyclical process that includes (1) sensing elements of the environment, (2) analyzing and creating narratives from the captured data, and (3) the propagation of these methods and representations back into the world. Continue reading
