Net_Music_Weekly: “Cyberbirds” by Benoît Maubrey

maubrey.jpgCyberbirds: Audio | Video Peacock are mobile multimedia screens by Benoît Maubrey — The Audio Peacock is a wearable electronic instrument constructed out of polycarbonate (plexi-glass) equipped with loudspeakers, amplifier, battery and different sound-making devices (microphone, sampler, radio receiver, interactive sensors). As Video Peacocks, the costume functions also as a mobile screen onto which theme-specific visualizations (movies, pictures, internet blogs, interactive computer images, webcasts and closed circuit camera views) are projected.

This wearable electroacoustic instrument is shaped into a peacock’s fan-like plumage and is highly directional — projecting the sound into a space like an oversized radar dish. Much in the same way that the courtyard peacock “strutts his stuff” in front of a pea-hen and imposes with his awesome cry, so does the Audio Peacock stalk his architectural domain — using sound as a scalpel that cuts through air and sculpts it, transforming it to into his new realm.

Experimental Music: Audio Explorations in Australia

expmusic_cover.jpgExperimental Music: audio explorations in Australia is a new book written by artists, producers and participants in alternative music-making. It includes a companion CD. The book explores the development of forms, ideas and scenes from the 1970s to the present. It brings together a wide range of musical experimentation, from post-punk, noise, appropriation, electronic dance and listening music, to free improv, computer process music, experimental radio, instrument building and audiovisual fusions. It illustrates how these forms have influenced each other to create a fertile and diverse musical culture in Australia, and highlights why it is vital to question, experiment and break the rules.

Cheryl L’Hirondelle Sings the Landscape [ca Vancouver]

songlines.jpgCheryl L’Hirondelle nikamon ohci askiy (songs because of the land) :: until February 2009 :: Vancouver, B.C.

This project explores the relationship between sound, space and identity as experienced through a cree worldview. By creating a “performative audio map”, L’Hirondelle will negotiate a journey through new territory, developing a nomadic relationship with the land. Her actions/singing will be in direct response to her encounters within the territory – the physical environment she finds herself in and its inhabitants.

During the month of December, the artist will make daily journeys throughout Vancouver and “sing” the landscape she encounters. These encounters will be captured by mobile phone by the artist and whatever other technologies are made available by participating viewers/audience (video, photo, audio). Continue reading

Live Stage: Cuckoo Radio [us Pittsfield, MA]

Cuckoo Radio, Caged Songs Sung (Tick Tock Tick) by Ven Voisey — created for the City of Pittsfield’s 2008/9 Artscape exhibition :: November 29, 2008 – September 2009 :: Opening: November 29; 4:00 – 6:00 pm :: Ferrin Gallery, 437 North Street, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

A clock: twelve cages sing twelve songs for twelve hours of the day. A flock: which has temporarily gathered up high on a lamp post, as birds are wont to do, and every hour, on the hour, they sing a song. These songs, composed of recorded bird calls and simple synthesized tones, are warnings, expressions of joy, crooning love songs, mating calls, questions, frustrated cries… Simultaneously they’re mysterious offerings and homages to the wind, the air, and to the things that slip through the rungs of a cage.

Live Stage: Extremo Fluctus [it Capri]

ef.jpgLive Stage: EXTREMO FLUCTUS – a multi-channel audio installation by Roberto Paci Dalò and Stefania Esposito :: October 30, 2008; 6:00 pm :: ends November 1, 12:00 pm :: Hotel La Palma, Capri, Italy.

Extremo Fluctus is an immesive soundscape, surrounding the visitors, generated by a multi-channel sound installation. Various materials are used and mixed to obtain a specific acoustic environment, including voices, ambient recordings and electronic sounds. Mermaids are evoked as a genetic drama, a realized depiction of the universal desire of coming back to water. The importance of oral and sound culture is also highighted, because of its being a crucial media in past, present and future society.

Born in Rimini, composer/performer, director & artist, Roberto Paci Dalò studied Visual Arts and Music in Ravenna and Fiesole and was awarded the Berlin DAAD Fellowship (1993). He lives and works in Rimini with long residencies in Berlin and Vancouver.
