“Lines” by Daan Brinkmann

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q77q_YpzPGI&feature=related[/youtube]

LINES – an intermediary installation by Daan Brikmann (2008): An interactive work of art can not be autonomous, as it is shaped through a dialogue with its audience. This principle forms the explicit point of departure for this work, in which the physical relations between its participants form the parameters for a live audiovisual piece. — Daan Brinkmann

Live Stage: Sensory Response Systems [de Berlin]

ryan2.jpgSensory Response Systems :: Ryan Jordan presents and performs his Sensory Response Systems as part of a micro_residency at General Public, Schanhauser Allee 167c, Berlin, Germany :: July 29 – August 1.

Sensory Response Systems is an exploration into audio-visual performance using an array of sensors responsive to physical movements in order to control the audio-visual output in programmes such as pd and Max/MSP. It also looks at reshaping and replicating the body through the use of fabric, textiles and technology. We draw from inspiration and definition through reference to embodiment, phenomenology, post-modernism, post-humanism, performance, physical computing and computer sound. Continue reading

Physically Engaged Electronic Instruments

Abstract: In [“Exertion Instruments” by Noah Vawter, et al] we introduce a new family of musical instruments, which, like traditional acoustic instruments such as guitar and drums, derive their acoustic energy in direct proportion to the exertion of the player’s muscles, yet have electric or electronic oscillators for sound generation.

tone.jpgAC [Institute Direct Chapel] presents Tone and Temperament :: June 18 – July 18, 2009 :: Opening: June 18; 6:00 – 8:00 pm :: AC [Institute Direct Chapel], 547 W. 27th St, 5th Floor, #519-529, New York, NY.

In addition to the permanent fixtures in the gallery, performances will be scheduled to occur throughout the duration of the exhibition.

Tone and Temperament was conceived as an opportunity to explore literal and conceptual ideas of harmony versus discordance and innocence versus criminality that subsist within the framework of conflicting social norms and art historical precedents. Continue reading

Mobile Music: Band Geeks Play iPhones…

st_iphoneorch_f.jpgOnce upon a time, orchestras required instruments. Then computers reproduced the sounds of symphonies. Now, band geeks are playing iPhones.

Stanford University’s newest ensemble is called (MoPhO), short for Mobile Phone Orchestra. Its conductor, Ge Wang, is a veteran of Princeton’s Laptop Orchestra (see issue 14.04) and is obsessed with making electronic music as mobile as possible. “The iPhone holds a lot of potential for what kind of music can be made and how it can be made,” Wang says.

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
