Turbulence Commission: “Grow Old” by Jason Freeman

grow_old.jpgTurbulence Commission: Grow Old by Jason Freeman:

Why can’t music grow old with us?

Grow Old is a streaming EP that reflects upon the malleability of digital audio in a cloud-based musical world. The music, regenerated daily by a simple computer program, changes subtly from one day to the next and more dramatically over the course of weeks, months, and years. So just as we constantly bring new perspectives and experiences to the music we hear, the music itself also changes over time. The web site includes the current version of each of the EP’s four tracks, extensive notes on each track, the computer source code used to generate each track, and subscription links to automatically receive new versions as a podcast.

Radio Web Macba: Composing with Process

rwm.jpgRadio Web Macba ::Composing with Process is a series of six episodes, written and edited by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore, which explores generative approaches (including algorithmic, systems-based, formalised and procedural) to composition and performance primarily in the context of experimental technologies and music practices of the latter part of the 20th Century. Each episode is accompanied by an additional programme, entitled Exclusives, featuring unpublished sound pieces by leading sound artists working in the field. The first one on 21.09.2010 (51′ 59”) presents two contrasting generative works by German artist Florian Hecker and Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda.

David Morneau’s music podcasts to conclude

david_morneau.jpgDavid Morneau will bring his composition-a-day project, 60×365, to an end on June 30th. You can hear the conclusion by visiting http://60×

Every day for the past year, Morneau has composed and posted a new sixty-second composition. That’s just over six hours of new music in sixty-second installments. For this project, Morneau explored a wide variety of musical styles and techniques, including musique concrète, sine wave synthesis, digital sampling, 8-bit constructions, process music, acousmatic composition, and post-techno beat manipulations. He found the requirement to make a new, complete piece every day an exhilarating challenge, and reveled in the constant variety of ideas the project embraced. This project began as a challenge to compose more, and ended up as an audio diary of the past year. Continue reading

“Pings” Archive Available

ping.jpgPINGS springs directly from the geographical distance between two collaborators. Working from their locales Simon Whitehead & Barnaby Oliver explore the physical space between them through rivers and air and a range of other terrains with their own qualities, such as the web, phone, post, and less tangible links of memory and synchronicity. An ongoing project archive is now available on the website. You can subscribe to PINGS as a podcast / RSS 2 feed from the website. And view the exchanges between the two as webpages.

David Morneau: a composition a day

david_morneau.jpg60×365 (sixty by three-sixty-five) is an experimental new music podcast by composer David Morneau. Every day for a year, Morneau will compose a new sixty-second composition and post it online at 60× This project commenced on July 1, 2007, and will conclude June 30, 2008, resulting in just over six hours of new music in sixty-second installments.

For this project, Morneau is exploring a wide variety of musical styles and techniques, including musique concrète, sine wave synthesis, digital sampling, 8-bit constructions, process music, acousmatic composition, and post-techno beat manipulations. Each daily post brings something new and different, a constant variety. The daily deadline means the works sometimes lose their preciousness as they become explorations in process and method for Morneau—with his form or his audience—as much as they are works of art.
