Under Voices: Les Voix de la Tour Eiffel

chinablue.jpgUnder Voices: Les Voix de la Tour Eiffel — by China Blue — is a CD compilation of sound pieces based on actual vibrations and binaural recordings of the Eiffel Tower. In addition to 8 songs, there is a limited and signed edition thumb drive that includes 23 sound files for you to play with. You can make something and submit it for possible inclusion on the next CD. The thumb drive is presented in a cool steel box that can also hold 5 CDs. You can listen to samples here.

The organization in charge of running the Tower gave us access to the monument to document it’s ambient acoustics and vibrations – the intrinsic sounds of 7300 tons of 2,500,000 rivets and 18,038 pieces of steel moving in the wind and in response to environmental changes, as well as the sonic environment of the 30,000 people who visit it daily as they move from the ground to the pinnacle.

RadioVillageNomade

radiovillage.jpgRadioVillageNomade :: Call for Submissions :: November 30, 2008.

This audio project, RadioVillageNomade, has been running since May 2008 using material contributed by invited artists and sound manipulators from all over the world. The “transmission” at this point is via our website, where a new mp3 is posted daily. The mp3s are available for download with the intention that they be reused as raw material for new submissions. Selected pieces are also being broadcast on French and German public radio. At the end of the 214 days we will weave all submissions into a 24 hour audio play.

The aim of this project is to cultivate works out of sounds which were designed without the intent to distinguish themselves from others, sounds that highlight the ever changing moments that make up our collective realities. Each day’s piece will be a “window” into a life and sound world different than our own. Continue reading

Floteson – Sonic Sources, Courses, and Rearrangements [se Malmö]

mixflo.jpg[Image: Magnetic Migration Music by Zoe Irvine] Floteson – Sonic Sources, Courses, and Rearrangements with Nikos Arvanitis, Nate Harrison, Ralf Homann, Zoe Irvine, Andreas Kurtsson, Henning Lundkvist, Sony Mao, Tisha Mukarji, Laurence Rassel, The Tape-beatles, Terre Thaemlitz, Ultra-red – Curated by Jens Maier-Rothe :: October 25 – November 8, 2008 :: KHM Gallery, Ystadsvägen 22A, Malmö, Sweden.

This exhibition examines diverse forms in the recycling of sound. Floteson was the Anglo-Norman precursor of the English word flotsam which loosely describes objects found floating or washed ashore. Combining “float” (Old-Fr. floter) and “sound” (Fr. son), the exhibition jumps on the sonic track of permanent reuse and follows the loop of discarding, recycling and transforming of sonic source material. Traveling with the flow it shows some of the key strategies and instigators for a use of diverse sound recycling methods within contemporary art. Continue reading

sound:frame Festival: Evolution Remixed [at Vienna]

sf_nav_logo.jpgAfter a short break, Vienna’s festival for visualizing electronic music will return and begin its third round full of sophisticated, fresh, new features! For the first time in its history, the March/April 2009 sound:frame Festival will focus on two major concepts, which will structure and define the entire festival-program (exhibition, performances conferences and workshops).

In addition to the historic retrospection of the audio-visual development in different aesthetic realms (experimental pictures / movies, video- and computer arts) from the last 100 years, the 2009 sound:frame festival will also focus on the art of audio and visual remixing – EVOLUTION REMIXED!

Visual artists, VJs, Video artists, sound producers, audio live acts, DJs, multimedia artists, theorists, and technicians are invited to participate and assist in the design of the festival. Read more >>

Net_Music_Weekly: Submersed Songs

submersed1.jpgSubmersed Songs (2008), by Vivian Caccuri, an artist from São Paulo, Brazil, is a sound installation that generates MP3 player remixes through the movements of four live fish. The animals’ movements and the proximity among them work as a parameter for mixing and spatializing the sound output of MP3 players (iPod’s and others) of the visitors in real time. This system constantly mashes-up two different songs recorded by different users. The two tracks are submitted to different modification processes, building a real time continuity between the swimming of the carp fish and the levels of distortion — which can vary from an intense reverberation to a simulation of hearing underwater. Continue reading
