Structure, Process and Perception of a River

residency.jpgBinauralmedia and Nodar Artist Residency Center announce: Paivascapes #1 Structure, Process and Perception of a River :: February – October 2010 :: International Open Call for Art Projects — Deadline: September 30, 2009.

The Nodar Artist Residency Program for 2010 will have a single aggregating subject: the Paiva River. Throughout the year, from winter to autumn, several multidisciplinary art projects (having sound as a central element) will be developed in a context-specific perspective, interacting with the river’s different geographical areas, from its spring to its mouth. A tribute to a small river that is a symbol of a region that (still) can live in a well-balanced interaction with nature. Continue reading

In the Dark @ City Sonics [be Mons]

citysonics.jpgIn the Dark (Belgian premiere) by
Armando Menicacci and Christian Delécluse at City Sonics :: Ateliers des FUCAM, Rue des soeurs noires 2 – 7000 MONS.

In the dark is an immersive sound experience that draws the solitary spectator into a totally obscured room. Without visual reference mark and under the influence of mysterious sound environment, the visitor is tempted to create new references in order to get a hold of the space he hears. Stories, voices, indications suggest the situations taking place in the places he cannot see. In this installation by Armando Meniacci and Christian Delécluse, he can but only imagine them and respond with gestures and movements. He is free to take action, but the sounds hunt him, avoid or invite him… In the dark… thus develops a different perception of the body and offers an intense time, the experience to be another.

Live Stage: Sensory Threads [uk London]

sensorythreads.jpgSensory Threads @ Surface Tension :: June 23, 2009; 10:30 am – 4:30 pm :: The Science Museum’s Dana Centre, 165 Queen’s Gate, South Kensington, London.

Sensory Threads — by Proboscis — is a work-in-progress to develop an instrument enabling a group of people to create a soundscape reflecting their collaborative experiences in the environment. For this interactive sensory experience, we are designing sensors for detecting environmental phenomena at the periphery of human perception as well as the movement and proximity of the wearers themselves. Possible targets for the sensors may be electro-magnetic radiation, hi/lo sound frequencies, heart rate etc). The sensors’ datastreams will feed into generative audio software, creating a multi-layered and multi-dimensional soundscape feeding back the players’ journey through their environment. Variations in the soundscape reflect changes in the wearers interactions with each other and the environment around them.

music.jpgAUSREIHE presents: Electronic Music Concert with Yutaka Makino, Daisuke Ishida, Rashad Becker :: May 23, 2009; 10:00 pm :: NK, Elsenstra_e 52, Neukvlln 12059 Berlin, Germany.

Yutaka Makino is an artist and researcher currently based in Los Angeles. He seeks to amalgamate the historic precedents of computer music and science, involving research in spatial perception, complex dynamical systems and emergence. His works range from sculpture to sound works including performance, computer music composition and spatial sound installation. He has been working on spatial compositions for Wave Field Synthesis. His recent commission work, Amorphous for Wave Field Synthesis, was premiered at the International Gaudeamus Music Week 2008 with the Foundation Game of Life’s 192.8ch Wave Field Synthesis System.

Live Stage: Tetsuya Umeda [at Vienna]

n87193962342_663.jpgCoded Cultures presents Dorkbot Vienna/Tokyo: Tetsuya Umeda :: May 17-18, 2009; 7:00 – 11:00 pm :: Metalab Wien, Rathausstraße 6, 1010 Vienna.

Altering fans, televisions, and other everyday appliances, converting their functions into something utterly different, Umeda creates objects freed from their original meanings. His works, created to suit the spaces in which they will be installed, use utterly familiar, commonplace phenomena, channeled through his clever handiness and unique spatial sensibility, to create mysterious, seemingly impossible sensations. They thereby free one from rigid perceptions constrained by preconceived ideas. Continue reading

Live Stage: Leervoll (Fully Empty) [us NYC]

leerraum.jpgLeervoll (Fully Empty): Leerraum’s Space for Listening with Asher Thal-Nir, Fourm, Richard Garet, Andy Graydon, Marihiko Hara, Kenneth Kirschner, Pe Lang, Mahmoud Refat, Zimoun; curated by Richard Garet and Andy Graydon :: May 9, 16 & 23, 2009; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Diapason gallery, 882 Third Avenue (between 32nd and 33rd Street), 10th Floor, Sunset Park, Brooklyn

This exhibition focuses on the label Leerraum [ ] as a platform for multi-channel sound releases concerned with ideas of sound in relation to space, silence, structure, and an active process of listening. Leervoll focuses on sonic constructions that explore the possibilities of environment and spatial listening, while also, drawing attention to structure, composition, and material interests.

“Audio Tunnel” by Cobi van Tonder

audiotunnel.jpgAudio Tunnel by Cobi van Tonder :: part of Stanford MFA Art Practice Thesis Show, May 12 – June 15, 2009, Thomas Welton Stanford Art Gallery, Stanford University.

Conceptually, this work challenges ideas of territory, control, transmission, tranception and how we listen to the world. Ultimately it is about a very complex and delicate sonic texture. We access the constructed space via our auditory perception. Through listening we perceive a landscape that in turn triggers the imagination to construct a picture of what this space looks like. It becomes a partly imaginary space yet it is a shared space. It is live and interactive: the participant becomes the transmitter and is transmitted/ displaced (in sound) in many actual places in fractions of milliseconds. A recursive eavesdropping becomes possible in this unseen territory. Continue reading

Atlas of Emotion Stream [it Napoli]

dalo.jpgRoberto Paci Dalo: Atlas of Emotion Stream :: April 18 – May 25, 2009 :: Palazzo delle Arti Napoli, via dei Mille 60, 80122 Napoli Italy.

Roberto Paci Dalo’s newest work is inspired by Giuliana Bruno’s book Atlas of Emotion published in New York in 2002. The installation is made out of a large black and white projection and sound. The sound is immersive also using subwoofers for particularly low frequencies reproduction. That puts the visitor/traveler in the center of the perception field. Sounds are made out of field recordings and electronic sounds. The project is conceived on three different formats: installation, film screening, and live set. Continue reading

Interview: Natasha Barrett

Natasha BarrettNatasha Barrett is a freelance composer, performer, and installation artist.

Sound Art at Bass Museum [us Miami Beach, FL]

hutchinson-giant-m-box.jpg[Image: Giant Music Box with Pins by Brenda Hutchinson – Photo: Luis Olazabal] Time is running out to catch ST20’s unique sound art exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art, 2121 Park Avenue, Miami Beach. SOUND is a thoughtful exploration of the meaning of sound art through the inclusion of new and historically important pieces that reveal and clarify the nature of sound, its physicality, its ability to define and occupy space, its intrinsic value as a tool for understanding and connecting with the world, and for helping us refine our sense of reality. SOUND runs now through March 29th, 2009.

Plan a visit and make sure to set aside enough time to absorb the range of possibilities contained in this show. In times like these, when we are bombarded with loud inaccuracies and distorted exaggerations, branding and rebranding, SOUND simply asks: How can we strengthen our aural sense within a visually dominant culture and what is gained by such a shift towards an aural perception of the world? Continue reading
