Reblogged Triggers for Synaesthetes

datablast01.jpg[Images: left: Welte Light-tone disk Edwin Emil Welte; right: Vibroexponator soundtracks – Boris Yankovsky] Tonewheels by Derek Holzer and Sarah Kolster is a concise historical appraisal of sound-light synthesis with some exciting new inclusions of lesser-know contraptions and artists. Lots of interesting charts, diagrams and musical notation. Vibroexponators, Photonas and Optigans!

James Peels’ article for the online tendril of cabinet magazine, The Scale and the Spectrum, analyses the history of the chromatics of sound in the context of his own series of colour-music paintings which attempt at presenting a visual installation of silent music. Continue reading

Interview: Jeff Talman

Jeff Talman - Photo by Ginger MarleyJeff Talman’s sound installations focus on notions of “self-reflexive resonance”, often using no other sound source than the natural ambient resonance of the installation site. His works also have a strong visual component, owing to his dual backgrounds in music and the visual arts. His latest work, “A Play of Flows” premiers on October 23, 2008 at the Galleria Mazzini in Genoa, Italy. Talman was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Sound Art in 2006 and was a recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Award in Computer Arts in 2003. He currently resides in Manhattan.

Due to the nature of his pieces, Talman does not provide sound samples on his website – the pieces are simply too site-specific to experience in any other way than first-hand. As such, we will only be providing photos and discussion with this interview.

Peter Traub: Before you began creating sound installations in the mid 1990s, you were a more ‘traditional’ computer music composer and musician. Could you discuss how you made the transition into sound installation work? Was there a particular experience of a space or place that pushed you in this new direction? Continue reading

An audience member standing in front of the work is seen by photo sensors that trigger the conversion of their movements into sound. Continue reading

Robert Hengeveld, Staging the Gap [ca Winnipeg, MB]

hengeveld_2.jpgToronto-based artist, Robert Hengeveld’s media exhibition Staging the Gap is currently on exhibit at Video Pool’s studio :: 100 Arthur Street,3rd Floor, Winnipeg, MB :: The exhibition runs until August 21, 2008 and will be available weekdays from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Staging the Gap is a miniature model of a concert stage with silently animated lights and smoke. The work explores the relationship of fact and fiction in a technologically mediated world. Hengeveld critically reflects on the mechanisms used to deliver popular culture by focusing on how visual effects – stage lights, pyrotechnics, and dry ice – are used at concerts to shape our understanding of what we hear. Ignoring society’s desire for the spectacle of performance, the stage created by the artist remains empty while a precisely orchestrated light show plays out. Continue reading

RadioVillageNomade

radiovillage.jpgWe are curating an online sound project and are interested in your participation. This audio project, RadioVillageNomade, will take place, day by day, for 214 days over 7 months (May-Nov 2008) at La Corbiere in Switzerland. An audio play will be created using material contributed by invited artists and sound manipulators from all over the world. The “transmission” at this point is via our website, where a new mp3 is posted daily. The mp3s will be available for download with the intention that they be reused as raw material for new submissions. Selected pieces will be also be broadcast on European public radio. At the end of the 214 days we will weave all submissions into a 24 hour audio play.

The aim of this project is to cultivate works out of sounds which were designed without the intent to distinguish themselves from others, sounds that highlight the ever changing moments that make up our collective realities. Continue reading
