He writes about the film, Trimpin: The Sound of Invention, an homage by the director Peter Esmonde to the creative genius, artist, inventor and musician Trimpin, and about Trimpin’s life and work: Among his works of art, I would like to remember Sheng High, i.e. an installation created in 2009 for the Ojai Music Festival, in which the author make use of a principle typical of the Chinese world of thousands of years ago. It is a sound sculpture that interacts with a natural element, in this case water, and whose main character is a sophisticated system of shaking bamboo woods. Another project titled Klompen, developed for The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, is made of 96 Dutch clogs with a little hammer inside hanging in the air through a thread and which diffuses a rhythmical symphony controlled form a PC.

playlist.jpgPlaylist: Playing Games, Music, Art curated by Domenico Quaranta (Brescia, Italia) :: December 18, 2009 – May 17, 2010 :: Mediateca Expandida de LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Los Prados, 121, 33394 Gijón – Asturias.

Along the Twentieth Century, music has often been the driving force behind crucial innovations in visual arts, and the starting point for many artists. Without forgetting the role played by music in the development of abstract art, it was mainly during the Sixties that music provided a fertile ground for new approaches, new theories, new art forms, new aesthetics. John Cage was a musician working with artists and engineers. The very first performance (the Untitled Event at Black Mountain College in 1952) was a musical event, such as many Fluxus events during the Sixties. Furthermore, Fluxus adopted music notation for its peculiar “scores”. Continue reading

The Fall of Pirate Cat Radio [us San Francisco]

radio.jpgFrom eastbayexpress.com: The Fall of Pirate Cat Radio by David Downs.

The Bay Area’s biggest pirate radio station is off the air, fined $10,000 for illegal broadcast, and its owner threatened with arrest if he returns. But Pirate Cat Radio isn’t going quietly into the night.

Not only is the thirteen-year-old San Francisco station still quasi-legally streaming to half a million listeners online per month, but the 1,200-watt station formerly broadcasting at 87.9 FM is fighting the Federal Communications Commission in federal court. While the station is raising funds to pay its fine with local events this month, it has joined a historic battle under way in Washington, DC over local control of the airwaves. Station owner Monkey (aka Daniel Roberts) says terrestrial radio has failed to serve the public interest, and Pirate Cat is fighting for consumer rights alongside pirates and politicians across America.
