Live Stage: Vis-à-vis by Butch Rovan [us Cambridge, MA]

vis-a-vis-ex1_proj.jpgVis-à-vis” :: Butch Rovan:: a monodrama for voice, interactive computer music and interactive video :: featuring Katherine Bergeron, voice :: Free admission :: May 14, 2008 at 8P.M. :: Reception to follow :: New College Theatre :: Harvard University :: 12 Holyoke Street :: Cambridge, MA :: Featuring the HYDRA 36-channel sound diffusion system.

Visà-vis: What is the cause, and the cost, of insight? What does it mean to see the world face to face? These were questions raised by the young Rilke in a well-known passage from his Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, a Parisian diary he kept in 1904 while serving as personal secretary to Rodin. They are also questions lying at the heart of Vis-à-vis, a multimedia work for voice, live electronics and real-time video, which takes Rilke’s words as a dramatic point of departure.

Tinnitus Tamer

ttx300_window_60.jpgThe Tinnitus Tamer helps Tinnitus sufferers to reduce or eliminate their Tinnitus by using the resources of their own bodies to take care of the Tinnitus in a natural way. Produced by VAVAsoft, Tinnitus Tamer is a tone generator replicating in a very flexible and precise way the tinnitus phenomenon produced by our neuronal ear system.

The striking similarities between the Tinnitus sounds and the sound produced by positive feedback in electronic circuits processing audio signals suggest that Tinnitus sounds are caused by positive feedback between neurons in the auditory neural system in the brain by inappropriate axon connections. Continue reading

The Echo Nest

echonest1.jpgThe Echo Nest Analyze API is a tool that can enrich your software’s understanding of musical recordings. It uses a perceptual model of human listening to generate detailed descriptions of a song’s structure and musical content. Given any musical sound file, the analysis engine outputs global musical track information such as tempo, dominant pitches and timbre, key, time signature, energy, etc. It also segments the sound file into large sections (such as verse, chorus, bridge), beats, and smaller time slices. Each segment is described in terms of pitch, timbre, and loudness content. The engine then segments a musical track into small time slices, each representing a perceived “sound” (a note of a piano, a syllable of a vocal line, etc.). Each segment is then described in pitch, timbre and loudness. This information can power performances, visualizations, and games with the ability to respond to a wide range of nuances in the music they use. Continue reading
