Interview: BubblyFish

bubblyfish_2.jpgListening Post: You have a classical background; what drew you to creating 8-bit music? What do you find alluring about the chiptune aesthetic?

Haeyoung Kim, BubblyFish: I started with classical music first, and moved on to electronic music. I have in electronic music and computer music, so experimental music. Classical is more my background. So I picked up a GameBoy, I guess 4 or 5 years ago already, and when I started using it, I just loved the sound of it, and part of the big deal is that there’s a huge limitation that does not require much music production at all. Since there’s such a limitation, I think I can push myself to be more creative, and think differently from the way that I usually create music, with more available tools…” From Interview: Chiptune Artist Haeyoung Kim, BubblyFish by Eliot Van Buskirk, Wired.

Vague Terrain 09: Rise of the VJ

flash3.jpgVague Terrain 08: Rise of the VJ :: Call for Work – There has been a distinct upswing of activity in the realm of audiovisual culture over the last few years. Specifically, the role of the VJ has become noticeably more prominent in audiovisual collaboration, whether it takes place in galleries, electronic music festivals, nightclubs, noise shows, academic institutions, public intervention art, online, or other places altogether. This growing focus on the live mixed projected image begs the question of the relationships between moving image, sound, body, environment, economics, and technology. Since this field is relatively new, and moving along at such a brisk pace, it is wise and exciting for us to critically consider the role of the VJ in audiovisual culture. For this issue of vague terrain: Rise of the VJ, we are seeking three types of submissions: audiovisual collaborations (in the form of a video to be streamed on the vague terrain site), critical writing, and interviews.

Reblogged Interview with Jessica Rylan/Can’t

206.jpgJessica Rylan is an artist and a musician who performs under the name Can’t. She also runs the label IRFP and makes her own instruments. There’s an unsettlingly sincere characteristic to her work which I like- it reminds me of Miranda July’s early performances. Click below to hear her recordings.

Listen to Can’t + lonely at night
Listen to Jessica Rylan + All Over Town

Can’t plays at Death by Audio in Brooklyn this Sunday 10/14. She will also give an artist’s talk at Brooklyn College Tuesday 10/16 at 1:30pm. Continue reading

Playing Music with Light and Interactive Gloves

bravetti-wave-img_0671.jpgWe see all kinds of novel controllers and input devices for music on CDM, but don’t always get the chance to see how these are used in actual music making. Uraguay-based Gustavo Bravetti is a master of live laptop performance with alternative controllers. (See previous video of him from Colombia.) He talks to Liz (aka Quantazelle, a laptop virtuoso herself) about the scene on the other side of the Americas and how he’s able to fire up crowds with unusual performance techniques, via three-axis light control and the P5 interactive glove. And, really, we didn’t put him up to all the plugs for this site — I’m much more excited to find out how people are able to use some of these resources in front of an audience! So, Gustavo, we’re thrilled to learn about what you’re doing.” Read Interview: Gustavo Bravetti, Playing Music with Light and Interactive Gloves by Liz McLean Knight, Create Digital Music.

Reblogged Greg Smith Interviews Eduardo Navas

turntable.jpg[Image: galibier design’s quattro turntable] One of my favourite blogs over the last year has been Remix Theory, a writing project quarterbacked by media theorist and artist Eduardo Navas. Eduardo is also the author of Remediative and Reflexive Mashups in Sampling Culture, a fantastic essay that beat-juggles a variety of paradigms that range from remix history through to data mashups. Eduardo and I have been firing questions back and forth over email for a few weeks and he has provided a compelling window into his research. Continue reading

Reblogged Robert Henke – Atlantic Waves

atlantic_waves_5_04.jpgOne of the more impressive audio-visual events of last few years, for me, was the Nicolai / Henke / Ikeda gig in the Tate Turbine Hall, London, back in May 2006. All three performers won me over, providing very different interpretations of the audio-visual aesthetic.

Robert Henke performed his Atlantic Waves piece, a custom software application which drives Ableton Live. It’s a graphical mutating score that provides a visual representation of the sound and acts as a kind sequencer to the music itself. A nod in the direction of Mondrian’s grid paintings perhaps, the screen is populated with moving coloured squares that seem to interact like traffic or Cellular Automata, sometime imploding and regrouping in perfect synchronisation with the abstracted beats.
