Live Stage: Cory Arcangel [us Brooklyn]

arcangel.jpgCory Arcangel’s Bruce Springsteen Born to Run Glockenspiel Addendum :: August 5, 2008; 8:00 pm :: Light Industry, 55 33rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, New York :: Tickets – $6, available at door.

Artist Cory Arcangel appears at Light Industry to perform the first complete and authoritative version of his now-notorious Bruce Springsteen Born to Run Glockenspiel Addendum. This appearance marks the first time “and perhaps last” that Arcangel will provide live accompaniment on glockenspiel to Springsteen’s canonical album in its entirety, alongside the premiere of a new video featuring Springsteen and the E Street Band.

“In 2006, on a whim, I decided to go uptown to Sam Ash music store, buy a Glockenspiel and record glockenspiel parts for the songs on Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run record that did not already feature that instrument. Most everything I have ever made has been ignited from a similar semi-destructive whim. Continue reading

“WITCHin flux” by Mark Cooley

witch.jpgWITCHin flux — by Mark Cooley — is an experimental remix of Yoko Ono’s 2007 release Yes, I’m a Witch and an attempt to apply classic Fluxus concerns to the context of an entirely hip yet somewhat conservatively staged reinterpretive retrospective of Yoko Ono’s musical works. Moving away from typical remix theory that re-authorizes the internal content of a piece the goal here is to deconstruct the structural constraints of the album / cd form itself and to recast some of the constants of that essentially analog form to the concepts of variability and random access apparent in Fluxus works and common to digital culture.

Once launched, WITCHin flux plays continuously while randomly accessing and remixing samples from Yoko Ono’s Yes, I’m a Witch. Technical requirements – high-speed connection, flash player installed.

Live Stage: Soundtoys Remixed [it Naples]

maologo.jpgMAO evenings :: Brian Mackern – Soundtoys Remixed [1996-2008] :: April 11, 2008; 6 – 8 pm :: Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina, Via Settembrini, 79 Naples.

Soundtoys Remixed, the title of the performance that Mackern will offer to the MADRE audience, will deal with Net surfing and (real-time) remix of 40 of his soundtoys developed between 1997 and 2007. Mackernian visions will flow through the (real-time) projection on three different screens, while the surrounding sounds will hold the audience in a synesthetic embrace that will shake new reflections about the increasingly more hybrid nature of the reality we face everyday.

Call + Response [lu Luxembourg]

callandresponse.jpgCall + Response :: April 25-28, 2008 :: A Series of Events hosted by Candice Breitz :: Mudam Luxembourg, 3 Park Dräi Eechelen, L-1499 Luxembourg :: Please register online before April 10! Booking is essential due to limited seating.

Creative innovation has always relied, to some extent, on the logic of call-and-response, a phrase that Breitz borrows from musicologists, who use it to describe the interactive quality that is key to musical experience in various oral cultures. Mudam warmly invites you to share your ideas with a group of artists and thinkers as they explore the logic of call-and-response and reflect on strategies of artistic appropriation and creative recycling during a three-day line-up of performances, panels and discussions.

Net_Music_Weekly: Song of Solomon

sos_1.jpg[Image: Solomon Linda and the Evening Birds, ca. 1941] Song of Solomon — by Ralph Borland and Julian Jonker — is an aleatoric audio collage and 8-channel installation that samples many versions of Mbube, aka Wimoweh aka The Lion Sleeps Tonight, in a sonic tribute to the song’s dead author Solomon Linda. By fragmenting and reordering compositional fragments of this ‘song of songs’, the installation questions the assumptions about compositional innovation and imitation that inform Western intellectual property law. In this jungle of sounds, the dead Author rests.

Sound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture

0262633639-f30.jpgSound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture – Edited by Paul D. Miller aka Dj Spooky that Subliminal Kid.

If Rhythm Science was about the flow of things, Sound Unbound is about the remix–how music, art, and literature have blurred the lines between what an artist can do and what a composer can create. In Sound Unbound, Rhythm Science author Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid asks artists to describe their work and compositional strategies in their own words. These are reports from the front lines on the role of sound and digital media in an information-based society. The topics are as diverse as the contributors: composer Steve Reich offers a memoir of his life with technology, from tape loops to video opera; Continue reading

Art’s Birthday 2008 [at Vienna]

picture-2.pngINVITATION TO JOIN KUNSTRADIO’S CELEBRATION OF ART’S BIRTHDAY 2008! Celebrating Art’s Birthday is a tradition started by French Fluxus artist Robert Filliou who declared, on January 17th 1963, that Art had been born exactly 1,000,000 years ago when somebody dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water.

Throughout the last decades artists have continued organising annual celebrations in the spirit of Filliou’s “Eternal Network” or “La Fête permanente”. In 2008 people all over the world will again be preparing numerous networked birthday parties for art, several of these under the motto “Forever Young”. Continue reading
