steinaviolinpower_mini.jpgSteina Vasulka & MASH :: December 6, 2008; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: Norrköpings Konstmuseum, Kristinaplatsen, Norrköping, Sweden.

Steina VasulkaViolin Power: In 1991, after having experimentally interfaced my acoustic violin with a variable speed video cassette player, I bought a MIDI violin and a Pioneer Disk Player. Interfacing these instruments with a computer gave me an instant access to any frame of video on the disk as well as access to fast/slow and forward/backward movements. The initial software was written by Russ Gritzo and further developed and improved by Bill Heckel. Violin Power is a ongoing continuous project with an ever increasing ‘repertoire.’ So far I have made five videodisks and I change the program for every performance. — Steina Continue reading

Surround Sound Master Class [us NYC]

harvestworks.jpgSurround Sound Master Class by Paul Geluso :: December 10 and 17, 2008; 6:30-9:30 pm :: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway #602, NYC.

For many years, artists had to bring their own equipment when they wanted to present multichannel sound works. Even a simple 4-channel (“quad”) installation required you to patch two stereo systems together, and you had to play your material from a computer to make sure the audio is in sync. With the advent of 5.1 Surround Sound, to be distributed on DVD, this changed profoundly. If your artistic project could work within the Surround Sound environment, you could just author a DVD with your surround audio or video piece, and ship it off to the gallery or presentation space to make it work.
