Reblogged Interactive Computer Music Discussion MP3

lifton_zoline.jpg[Image: Lifton and Zoline] What a difference a quarter century makes. In a radio program from 1973 about electronically mediated art, various experimenters discuss their ambitions.

Reblogged Rhizome News: Music Man

2007dl004-0105.jpgDouglas Repetto is a legend in New York City, where he has fostered a thriving electronic music and new media community. He is founder of the Dorkbot discussion series (which now has local branches around the world), the ArtBots Robot Talent Show, and Organism, a collective of people “making art with living systems.” By day, he is Director of Research at Columbia University’s famous Computer Music Center, and it’s unlikely he’ll ever be able to live down the glory of being deemed “sexiest geek” by Wired. But all of Repetto’s accolades and extracurricular activities unfold from his position as a respected artist whose captivating installations appear deceptively simple, only to convey complex sonic experiences.

Just Play – Musik as Social Praxis [de Oldenberg]

justplay_billing_572.jpgJust Play – Musik as Social Praxis :: Artists: Cory Arcangel / Beige, Johanna Billing, Jeremy Deller, Iain Forsyth + Jane Pollard, Kristin Lucas, Hadley + Maxwell, Elke Marhöfer / Anne-Marie Schleiner, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Abe Linkoln / Marisa Olson :: March 8 – May 18, 2008 :: Opening: March 7, 2008; 7 pm :: Edith Russ Site for Media Art, Katharinenstra_e 23, D-26121 Oldenburg.

Music plays a pivotal role in many people’s lives as part of everyday popular culture because it is so unmediated. At times as a real world, at others as a reflecting surface for one’s own and others’ projections, music provides scope for manifold liberating, activist or subversive strategies at a far remove from consumption or glamour.

Reblogged Sound and the City [uk Cambridge]

crassh.jpgSound and the City: Interdisciplinary Perspectives :: February 22, 2008 :: CRASSH, University of Cambridge.

Over the past year, the Cambridge University City Seminar at CRASSH has explored diverse and enlivening topics in the study of cities, urban space, architecture, and visual and material culture. These topics have ranged widely in time and space, from predictions for the age of the supermetropolis to the use of digital technology in architectural space to an analysis of Mussolini’s use of Rome’s imperial past in the construction of its present.

Out of these encounters emerged an aspiration to allow for a more intense investigation of a particular area within this field. This will find its preliminaryculmination in a one-day conference to be hosted by the City Seminar organisers at CRASSH in Lent term 2008. Continue reading

All Problems of Notation Will be Solved by the Masses

pattern-cascade_preview.jpgIf relational aesthetics and open source were always commercial, can the musical score provide a way of thinking through different relationships between creativity and code? The return to improvisation in ‘livecoding’ draws parallels with experimental practices developed by maverick musicians, programmers and educators from Sun Ra, The Art Ensemble of Chicago and the Scratch Orchestra to Seymour Papert. Simon Yuill argues that these ‘distributive practices’ are worth extending today.

In recent years the foregrounding of ‘collaboration’ in artistic practice has acquired an aura of inherent benevolence and emancipation, as though the very act of working with others in itself ensures some form of resistance or alternative to conventions of cultural production, and confers positive moral value.

Live Stage: Multimodal Streamed Live [nl Rotterdam]

30400-500-375.jpgTest_Lab: Multimodal – Featuring Arjen Mulder (NL), Sissel Tolaas (N), Tom Froese (UK), Graham Smith (CDN), Ulf Langheinrich (A), and Sietske Klooster (NL) :: February 21, 2008, 8:00 pm :: V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, Eendrachtsstraat 10, 3012XL, Rotterdam :: Streamed live [Requires Real Player].

Although technological innovation in art and media has greatly enhanced the ways in which artworks can stimulate our senses, this innovation predominantly concerns the same few sensory modalities, and only rarely aims at supporting the integration between them. Recent artistic Research and Development (aRt&D) has, however, made great progress in developing methods for multimodal art; enhancing the sensorial richness of art and media experiences in integrated ways.

Live Stage: Distributed Memory [us San Francisco]

n10219539866_7224.jpgDistributed Memory :: February 24, 2008; 7:30 – 10:30 pm :: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St. (Corner of Third), San Francisco, CA.

Distributed Memory, originally presented at the Getty Center, features commissioned pieces supported in part by Montalvo Arts Center, pairs filmmakers and composers in the creation of collaborative real-time cinematic works from the recomposition of found and new materials. This evening is the second in a two-part series curated by Julie Lazar. In Rotary Wobble and Horizontal Boundaries, Pat O’Neill’s formalized contemplations of urban and natural environments are merged with electronic musician Carl Stone’s live digital scores. Janie Geiser and Tom Recchion’s fusion of live performance, re-photography and collage animation, Magnetic Sleep, reinterprets the formal melodramatic traditions of Man Ray and Maya Deren.
