PROCESS Festival Berlin

process.jpgPROCESS Festival Berlin :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: January 2, 2010.

PROCESS Festival Berlin is now accepting proposals for performances and new-media work, to be shown at our 2 day festival in mid-March 2010. The Festival seeks to highlight new and compelling work in the field of generative or process music – focusing on sound pieces which are inspired by or emulate algorithms, biology, or other defined systems.

From scores generated from nature (Mamoru Fujieda’s “Patterns of Plants”) or mathematics (John Cage’s “Sonatas and Interludes”), to interactives which allow users to create music (Brian Eno’s Bloom for iPhone) or a system as simple as 2 tape recorders (“It’s Gonna Rain” by Steve Reich), this space has enjoyed a compelling history.

Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra

articlelarge.jpg[Image: Nicholas Bryan plays multiple iPhones during the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra’s Music for Iphones concert at the the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics] From Pocket to Stage, Music in the Key of iPhone, a December 4, 2009 article in the New York Times by Clair Cane Miller and Miguel Helft:

PALO ALTO, Calif. — An expectant hush fell over the audience as the director of the chamber ensemble, Ge Wang, came out and asked them to turn off their cellphones. The seven other musicians, dressed in black, filed in and took their positions in a circle. Ge Wang, a co-director of the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra, moved around the audience on Thursday, playing two iPhones. Ge Wang says the iPhone may be the first musical instrument, electronic or otherwise, that millions will carry in their pockets.

The conductor raised his hands. A low droning sound arose, as if the chamber ensemble were tuning. Then the musicians began to swing their arms in wide circles, creating rising and falling waves of electronic sound… Sometimes the sounds were otherworldly…. More: here.

Live Stage: 8th Annual NIME concert [us Brooklyn, NY]

nime.jpgNIME: New Interfaces for Musical Expression :: 8th annual concert :: December 15, 2009, 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. :: Southpaw, 125 Fifith Avenue, Brooklyn, NY :: Entry is $7 (Free for NYU ID holders)

In the eighth annual NIME concert, performers will play a series of newly designed electronic instruments that aim to keep the “live” in the live performance of digital music.

Computer music is usually played with a keyboard and mouse. Laptop musicians often sit at a desk and give performances that are little more than watching someone engage in “office gestures.” The idea behind NIME is to go beyond the mouse and keyboard, beyond even piano keyboards and drum pads, and develop performance systems that make the most out of the new opportunities that digital music offers.

Live Stage: shut up and listen! 2009 [au Vienna]

shut.jpg shut up and listen! 2009: Land der Berge :: December 12th, 2009, 19:00 :: raum35 I Theresianumgasse 35, 1040 Vienna :: Admission: Suggested donation € 7.

shut up and listen! enters its fourth season in 2009. This edition’s title ‘Land der Berge’ (german for ‘land of the mountains’, referring to Austria’s national anthem of the same name) points at the ‘typical Austrian’ in all his ambivalence, as well as highlighting artistic positions related to alpine experiences. In concerts, sound projections and listening spaces, the festival presents electroacoustic works and sound art projects, as well as music for dulcimer, (counter) guitar or self-invented instruments. Additional works were retrieved through an open call in cooperation with Austrian music institutions. Finally, a lecture sheds light on the history of the Austrian national anthem. Continue reading
