Live Stage: tiny noise [ca Montreal]

tn_justice_fly.jpgTiny Noise :: February 26, 2008; 8pm :: ZOOBIZARRE – 6388 St. Hubert, Montreal :: [metro Beaubien, orange line] :: with performances by:

Justice Yeldham (AUS) – What’s been described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is the unique work of Justice Yeldham who has an obsession with using sheets of broken glass as his musical instrument. Amplifying the sheets using a high end transducer designed for grand pianos, he presses his face against the surface whist employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries.

Reblogged Recomputing Space

recomputing-space.jpgI posted about some work of Rodrigo Derteano’s last week (here) but this third work I omitted as it didn’t quite seem suitable to include with the other two works.

Recomputing Space is a sound installation which employs field recordings as a psychogeographic study of urban sound. “Following the commands and rhythm imposed by an algorithm, two persons walk around in chosen locations in the city, recording a mix of noise, language, music and the sound of their own steps. The chosen locations are public places, such as public squares, parks, tram stations etc. Continue reading

“Circo Ipnotico” by Otolab [nl Amsterdam]

circo-ipnotico.jpgOtolab’s Circo IpnoticoAudiovisual Improvised Session :: February 23, 2008 :: Paradiso (Amsterdam) :: Part of Sonic Acts XII – The Cinematic Experience.

Circo Ipnotico is an audiovisual improvised session with an open performer lineup. The score is given by dub architectures made by a crossing work of synths and laptops. The audiovisual journey evolves from here and the performers (from 3 to 6) use very different tools: from Girello, a rotating support supplied with different surfaces featuring shapes, colours and materials which are modified in real time using paint, to Pepposcopio a Moduli Digitali, to software interventions by other performers.

Review of “Noise/Music: A History”

noise-music-hegarty.pngYou can read a review of Paul Hegarty’s Noise/Music A History by Greg Smith on Serial Consign. Noise/Music, as you may remember from our announcement in October 2007, looks at the phenomenon of noise in music, from experimental music of the early 20th century to the Japanese noise music and glitch electronica of today. It situates different musics in their cultural and historical context, and analyzes them in terms of cultural aesthetics. It’s a fascinating book.

And now we have a review, which I hope will encourage you to pick up a copy. As Smith writes:

Noise/Music is most easily appreciated as a “disturbingly succinct” history of 20th century music and perhaps the most appropriate text to compare the work to is Michael Nyman’s “Experimental Music: Cage and Beyond”. Continue reading

Reblogged Bernhard Leitner [de Berlin]

04_leitner_rhre_2.jpgBernhard Leitner: TonRaumSkulptur / Sound Space Sculpture (1968-1973) :: Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin :: February 1 – March 24, 2008 :: [info] :: [video] :: [bernhard leitner website]

Sound Spaces are not just spaces in which sound can be heard. Rather, it is sound itself that creates the space and its special qualities. Therefore the experience of hearing not only enables us to experience the space around us, they can also make it possible to experience physical space as an “inner” space. Bernhard Leitner’s work leads us to a quality of sound (as space) that remains concealed within stimulus streams. It shows the potentials of sensual experience that we are barely conscious of because they are either lost or have remained unknown as possibilities. – Cathrin Pichler Continue reading

The Great Stalacpipe Organ

stalacpipe2.jpgThe Great Stalacpipe Organ :: According to the oddmusic.com gallery description, the organ is located deep in the Luray Caverns in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and is the worlds largest musical instrument. Here is their description:

Stalactites covering 3 1/2 acres of the surrounding caverns produce tones of symphonic quality when electronically tapped by rubber-tipped mallets.

This most unique, one-of-a-kind instrument was invented in 1954 by Mr. LeIand W. Sprinkle of Springfield, Virginia, a mathematician and electronic scientist at the Pentagon. Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: “Vespers” by Alvin Lucier

bat.jpgApropos the Bat House Project I posted on Networked Performance yesterday, here’s Alvin Lucier’s Vespers. It was published on a Sonic Arts Union LP (Electric Sound, Mainstream) in 1971. In the Liner Notes, Lucier wrote:

“I would like to pay my respects to all living creatures who inhabit dark places and who, over the years, have developed the art of echolocation (sounds sent out into an environment returning as messengers with information as to shape, size and substance of the environment and the objects in it). I am envious of the astonishing acuity of such creatures — dolphins, certain species of nocturnal birds, and bats, particularly those of the family Vespertilionidae, the common bat of Europe and North America.
