Net_Music_Weekly: Chameleon Guitar

chameleonguitar-1-enlarged.jpgChameleon Guitar’ blends old-world and high-tech by David Chandler, MIT News Office: Natural wood, with its unique grain patterns, is what gives traditional acoustic instruments warm and distinctive sounds, while the power of modern electronic processing provides an unlimited degree of control to manipulate the characteristics of an instrument’s sound. Now, a guitar built by a student at MIT’s Media Lab promises to provide the best of both worlds.

The Chameleon Guitar — so named for its ability to mimic different instruments — is an electric guitar whose body has a separate central section that is removable. This inserted section, the soundboard, can be switched with one made of a different kind of wood, or with a different structural support system, or with one made of a different material altogether. Then, the sound generated by the electronic pickups on that board can be manipulated by a computer to produce the effect of a different size or shape of the resonating chamber. Continue reading

Live Stage: Max/Msp/Jitter 5 Workshop [de Berlin]

button_patching.jpgMax/Msp/Jitter 5 — a Project-Oriented Workshop with Jeremy Bernstein, Peter Castine, John Dekron :: Participant level: Beginners and Intermediate users :: March 30 – April 3, 2009 (Course Work); 11:00 am – 7:00 pm :: Final Presentations: April 3-5 :: NK / ElsenStr. 52 (2.Hof) Berlin, Germany.

The core idea for the workshop project is to start from a small and simple video file — typically formatted 48×64 pixels, either monochrome (black-and-white) or 16 grays — and generate an acoustically interesting audio signal that will be used to encode and transmit the video to another computer. This will, in turn, use the video data to control simple everyday household electric devices.

Fuzzy Electronics (& Magnetics) [be Aalst]

slide_2005.jpgThe exhibition Fuzzy Electronics (& Magnetics) by Bram Vreven, Doris Kuwert, Frederik De Wilde and Jerry Galle is ongoing until Saturday, April 4, 2009 at Netwerk / center for contemporary art, Houtkaai, B-9300 Aalst, Belgium.

The exhibition Fuzzy Electronics (& Magnetics) highlights the importance of accidental changes in so-called “new” media. There are a number of frictions provided, causing irregularities that cast a different light on the tight framework of digital imaging. On the one hand there are references to phenomena such as physical alienation and nostalgia, while at the same time there is also room for the poetic possibilities of sensory deficient digital processes and surprising electro mechanics.

Thru-You

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tprMEs-zfQA&eurl=http://thru-you.com/[/youtube] Check this out if you haven’t already. It’s a tribute to bedroom musicians. Employing user-submitted YouTube content as his sole building blocks, Israeli musician and producer Kutiman assembled ThruYOU — a mini-album’s worth of A/V material with revelatory results. Kutiman carefully credits all of the musicians he samples, giving many unknowns a good 15 minutes of fame. Continue reading
