Proto_gabber 3.11

proto.jpgFrom: artificial.dk

In Proto_gabber 3.11 by Dutch artist Peter Luining you can move the five squares. The motions are recorded and each square continues repeating it, generating patterns of motion as well as sound. Neat in all its simplicity. And fun.

Peter Luining is an Amsterdam based artist, curator and theorist. He studied contemporary philosophy in the mid 80’s. After his study he became active in the Amsterdam vj-scene. He started fiddling with computers, and made 3D animations in commercial jobs. Continue reading

Reblogged Ligeti – Artikulation Visualization

artikulation1.jpg (image: a graphical visualization of the electronic score Artikulation by György Ligeti from 1958)

The music predates the modern analog synthesizers of the late 60’s & early 70’s, as the sound sources are a combination of generated sound and tape manipulation. The score is based on a timeline measured in seconds, using shapes & colors instead of notes on a staff. Dots represent impulses & combs for noise. Colors stand for variations in timbre & pitch.

The resulting movie can also be seen here.

Thanks to information aesthetics.

Live Stage: Interaction, Interactivity, Interactive Art [at Linz]

Interaction, Interactivity, Interactive Art – A buzzword of new media under scrutiny :: September 4, 2008 :: Part of Ars Electronica – A New Cultural Economy, Linz, Austria :: Organized by Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research.

Interaction: The relation between two or more relatively independent things or systems of change which advance, hinder, limit, or otherwise affect one another – (Dictionary of Philosophy and Psychology, 1901) Interactivity has become virtually a magic word for the promotion of new media and the media arts alike. The term refers not only to a certain technology, it also stands for social concepts and visions ranging from grassroots democracy all the way to consumer freedom. This imbues the term with its broad-ranging impact, but also contributes to its dilution. Continue reading

Live Stage: Tonewheels [uk Sheffield]

sara_green_b.jpgTONEWHEELS :: August 1, 2008 at Access Space:: 1 Sidney Street, Sheffield UK.

TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound, inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music inventions. Transparent tonewheels with repeating patterns are spun over light-sensitive electronic circuitry to produce sound. This all-analog set is performed entirely live without the use of computers, using only overhead projectors as light source, performance interface and audience display. In this way, TONEWHEELS aims to open up the “black box” of electronic music and video by exposing the working processes of the performance for the audience to see. Continue reading

Converting Protein + Gene Expression into Music

music_x220.jpgGil Alterovitz, a research fellow at Harvard Medical School is developing a computer program that translates protein and gene expression into music. In his acoustic translation, harmony represents good health, and discord indicates disease.

At any given time in each of our cells, thousands of genes are churning out their molecular products while thousands more lie senescent. The profile of which genes are on versus off is constantly changing–with specific diseases such as cancer, for example.

Searching for a more simplified way to represent the complex library of information inherent in gene expression, Alterovitz decided to represent those changes with music. He hopes that doctors will one day be able to use his music to detect health-related changes in gene expression early via a musical slip into discord, potentially improving a patient’s outcome. From Technology Review Continue reading
