Live Stage: (noish) >> trAnsCodE [de Berlin]

noish.jpg[noish] >> trAnsCodE :: Oscar Martin :: October 2, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. – October 3, 2010 at 12:30 a.m. :: NK Elsen str 52 2 HH Neukoelln Berlin 12059

Noish is the experimental sound project of Oscar Martin. A sound explorer, Martin bases his work on the deconstruction of field recordings and the creative use of technology errors. Luthier-digital with a ‚ pure data‚ environment, which he uses to develop his own experimental tools for processing and real time algorithmic-generative composition. He can be placed somewhere between Computer Music, the Aesthetics of Error, and generative Noise. He seeks the creation of virtual sound universes, imaginary soundscapes that encourage active listening and a different sensibility toward the perception of sound phenomena. He works under the open source paradigm. All his work is published under Creative Commons licence, by different labels and netlabels;(dronerecords, tecnoNucleo, costellam, etc.) Continue reading

Live Stage: SleepWalks Performance (Sleepover) [us NYC]

sleepwalk.jpgSleepWalks Performance (Sleepover, please bring bedding) :: June 5, 9:00 pm – June 6, 9:00 am :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Fl., New York City :: RSVP: lemurz66 [at]

An overnight, live electronic music performance by Lee Pembleton and Andrea Williams. Culling sounds from their audio files of field recordings, live samples of the room resonance, and various electronically processed acoustic instruments, they create an extended musical composition for the entirety of a night for an audience that sleeps in the performance space. Pembleton and Williams intend to create soundwalks for dreamers. SleepWalks first premiered as a shorter ‘catnap’ at Issue Project Room in NYC in early 2009 and since then as dream-filled overnight performances in the San Francisco Bay Area, including at Mills College as part of The Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival. A listening sample can be found here (link on right side of page). Continue reading

Live Stage: Performance Art Festival – Amplification [hr Osijek]

amp.jpg 10th Performance Art Festival: Amplification — audiovisual physical live acts with Francisco López (Spain) + Evelina Domnitch (Belarus / Netherlands) & Dmitry Gelfand (Russia / Netherlands) Kustos :: Curator:Darko Fritz Croatia / Netherland :: June 1 – 2, 2010 :: Barutana, Tvrdavica 192, Osijek, Croatia.

All of the technological audiovisual setups on display here challenge the limits of human perception in the physically achieved audiovisual surroundings. The sound is continually being treated as a physical fact, whether a field recording, or created as frequencies using the analogue and digital machinery in the scientific lab experiment happening live on the stage. The sound as such participates in the composition of a new kind of auditive experiences tailored to each performance location, often varying with the observation point within the performance room itself.

The artwork will be surrealized as an affective exposé through live improvisation. Stereotypes of Sweden, like the Bergmanesque gloom, erotica and nature romanticism will be invoked in this imaginary journey through Sweden of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Continue reading
