orbitor by Mark Bain renders architecture audible [nl Middelburg]

mark_bain_orbitor.jpg orbitor by Mark Bain (USA) :: January 16, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. to February 14, 2010 :: De Vleeshal, Markt, Middelburg, Netherlands ::

From 17 January through to 14 February 2010 the Foundation for Visual Arts Middelburg (Stichting Beeldende Kunst Middelburg) will present American artist Mark Bain’s exhibition orbitor at De Vleeshal, on the Markt. The exhibition’s opening, on 16 January at 5 p.m., will be marked by an audio performance by Mark Bain.

In orbitor, Mark Bain uses the De Vleeshal itself, once Middelburg’s town hall, as an instrument. As do all buildings, De Vleeshal produces sound: the resonant history of different materials in time and space. Here electricity, radio waves and other social systems continually circulate; hidden movements of which we are not always aware. Continue reading

The thirteenth Sonic Acts Festival in Amsterdam is entirely dedicated to the exploration of space in performative and audiovisual art, film, music and architecture. Sonic Acts XIII – The Poetics of Space examines the importance of physical space in times of far-reaching technological developments, and the physical and psychological impact of spatial designs.

Researching spatiality in the arts forms the core of the festival. How is space defined by a work of art? What does a viewer or listener experience? How do technological artworks deal with the visual, auditory and psychological aspects of spatiality? Continue reading

Live Stage: The Blackest Flux [us Jamaica Plain, MA]

127.jpgThe Blackest Flux featuring Yutaka Makino:: December 10, 2009, 8:00 – 10:00 pm :: AXIOM Center for New and Experimental Media, 141 Green Street, Jamaica Plain, MA.

The Blackest Flux is an experiment toward abstraction of space/body. By using acoustic and psychoacoustic phenomena, it creates a state of disorientation and a series of tactile movement of sound masses over space.

Yutaka Makino is an artist and researcher currently based in Los Angeles. He seeks to amalgamate the historic precedents of computational composition and science, involving research in non-standard sound synthesis, spatial perception, acoustics, collective behavior, complex dynamical systems and emergence.

Live Stage: shut up and listen! 2009 [au Vienna]

shut.jpg shut up and listen! 2009: Land der Berge :: December 12th, 2009, 19:00 :: raum35 I Theresianumgasse 35, 1040 Vienna :: Admission: Suggested donation € 7.

shut up and listen! enters its fourth season in 2009. This edition’s title ‘Land der Berge’ (german for ‘land of the mountains’, referring to Austria’s national anthem of the same name) points at the ‘typical Austrian’ in all his ambivalence, as well as highlighting artistic positions related to alpine experiences. In concerts, sound projections and listening spaces, the festival presents electroacoustic works and sound art projects, as well as music for dulcimer, (counter) guitar or self-invented instruments. Additional works were retrieved through an open call in cooperation with Austrian music institutions. Finally, a lecture sheds light on the history of the Austrian national anthem. Continue reading

peter.jpgPeter Traub premieres his new installation, Solera: for sound, site, and time :: October 26 – November 6, 2009 :: Ruffin Hall, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA. :: Talk: November 2, 2009; 2:00 p.m.

Composer and installation artist Peter Traub will premiere his new public sound work in the Ruffin Hall main lobby at the University of Virginia. Solera is an ongoing installation that will run for 24 hours a day, accumulating and playing back the sonic activities and characteristics of the installation space – people passing through, conversations, machines, and music. Over the two weeks of the installation, the incidental sounds of each day and the acoustic resonances of the space will be layered upon each other, creating an aural memory of the space that will grow and change over time. Multiple visits to the piece are suggested. Continue reading

Live Stage: A Thing About Machines [uk Coventry]

thing2.jpgA Thing About Machines :: September 24 – 27, 2009 :: Festival Launch Party: 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.:: The Herbert, Jordan Well, Coventry, CV1 5QP.

A Thing About Machines is Coventry’s first and best *OTHER* Art Festival dedicated to local hero Delia Derbyshire exploring art and music that uses, reinterprets, reviews or renews technology invented in the past 100 years..

This year’s festival was inspired by Tangerine Dream’s 1976 concert in Coventry Cathedral (we like unwieldy analogue synths and use of unexpected venues here). We want to explore the relationship Art can have with its surroundings. Transformation of a space, transportation from a place, response to surroundings, interaction and reaction.” Continue reading

Interview: Adam Nash

adam3.jpgAdam Nash is a new media artist, composer, programmer, performer and writer. He works primarily in networked real-time 3D spaces, exploring them as live audiovisual performance spaces. His sound/composition and performance background strongly informs his approach to creating works for virtual environments, embracing sound, time and the user as elements equal in importance to vision. Adam’s work has been presented in galleries, festivals and online in Australia, Europe, Asia and the Americas, including SIGGRAPH, ISEA, and the Venice Biennale. He also works as composer and sound artist with “Company in Space” (AU) and “Igloo” (UK), exploring the integration of motion capture into real-time 3D audiovisual spaces. He is currently undertaking a Master of Arts by Research at the “Centre for Animation and Interactive Media” at RMIT University, Melbourne, researching multi-user 3D cyberspace as a live performance medium; and he’s a Lecturer in “Computer Games and Digital Art” in the School of Creative Media at RMIT University.

He will present the research he has been doing over the last three years during his research fellowship at the National Academy of the Arts in Bergen (KHIB). HC Gilje writes regularly on these matters on his blog ‘Conversations with Spaces’. Continue reading
