marco-donnarumma_high-spheres_riga.jpgRe-New Digital Arts Festival presents High Spheres by Marco Donnarumma :: May 18, 2010; 7:30 pm :: Huset i Magstræde, Copenhagen, Denmark.

High Spheres is a participative multi-channel concert for found objects and reactive generative music by Edinburgh-based new media artist Marco Donnarumma. The action takes place open air. No musical instruments are provided, but stones and leaves. Audience can use six microphones and a 6.1 surround system to amplify any kind of sound they wish to produce. The whole sonic matter is managed by a Pure Data-based software for generative music developed by the author, which interacts with the audience processing sounds in real-time, analyzing the input signals and generating new sounds and textures out of the collected data.

All these streams are sources mixed in realtime into a multi-channel audio and video landscape. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “ItSpace” by Peter Traub

itspace_3001.jpgItSpace, by Peter Traub, creates a network of pages within the social networking site MySpace. Instead of people, the pages feature everyday household objects from the artist’s house. Each page has a photo of the object, a description, and most importantly, a 1-minute piece composed of samples of the object being struck, resonated, and so forth. All the pages, or objects, are ‘friends’ with each other, so that visitors who discover one object may jump to the others to see their profiles and hear their sounds. Visitors to the site are invited to create new ItSpace pages with pieces made from their own household objects and link those in as ‘friends’ of the original set. Listen to an Interview >> Continue reading

Live Stage: Matt Rogalsky [us Brooklyn]

938370.jpgDiapason presents: Memory Like Water — a sound installation by Matt Rogalsky :: Saturdays, January 3 – 31, 2009; 2:00 – 8:00 pm :: Diapason, 882 Third Avenue, 10th floor, Brooklyn (Sunset Park).

In Memory Like Water, which revisits the idea of water as a metaphor for memory, the voices of people recounting their earliest memories are used to shape the sounds of water in motion. In each of eight loudspeakers, an individual is paired with a watery location (streams, rivers and lakes recorded in Ontario, Vermont and New York State). The streams of sound are continuous; for the most part the original voice recordings are submerged, and used to shape the water by imposing on it their frequency content, rather than being heard directly. Whispers of the voices occasionally become directly audible, however, especially when listening to one speaker at close range. Continue reading

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

yokohama5.jpgELSEWHERENESS:YOKOHAMA by Anders Weberg and Robert Willim – created for Dislocate08, this audio-visual work is intended to evoke imaginary geographies. The film is made solely from Yokohama-related audio and video found on the web. This material has been manipulated and composed into a suggestive imaginary journey through an estranged landscape. The film can be downloaded into a media player or mobile phone and enjoyed when walking around the surroundings of Yokohama. The work deals with questions of media representations and site specificity. It calls forth the sometimes whirling experiences of elsewhereness that may characterize societies of today.
