kent.jpgInteractivity and the Audio Arts :: Call for submissions :: a one-day Conference at the University of Kent, UK :: Wednesday June 9, 2010 :: Keynote speaker: Francois Pachet, Sony CSL-Paris ::

In our contemporary age, computer technologies play an ever-increasing role in our lives. These technologies bring with them new concerns and ideas, causing us to adjust our frames of reference and re-evaluate old thoughts and practices. This event will explore human-computer interaction, machine learning, environments and interfaces, performance and programming issues, aesthetics and user-experience.

Papers are invited from musicians, audio artists, sound designers, theorists and thinkers who investigate the subject of interactivity in its various manifestations. Continue reading

Live Stage: Turbulence @ Issue Project Room [us NYC]

turb_at_issue.jpgTurbulence.org Presents Two World-Premiers at Issue Project Room: The Occupants by Stephan Moore + Moments of Inertia by R. Luke Dubois, with Todd Reynolds :: April 9, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Issue Project Room, At the Old American Can Factory, 232 3rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY :: Admission: $10 — Tickets.

The Occupants — by Stephan Moore — is a generative composition with some aspects that can be influenced through single- or multi-user interaction. Moore has used the piece to search for answers to both profound and insipid questions, such as: What does it mean to compose a “site-specific” composition when the site is the internet? Can a generative algorithm be imparted with a sense of long-term form that is also not pre-determined? How successfully can humans be programmed to be good collaborators with software algorithms, towards the latters’ goals? Continue reading

“Coincidence Engines” by [The User]

ce1_santral_crdt.jpgCoincidence Engines by [The User]: The first two works in the Coincidence Engines series are subtitled One: Universal People’s Republic Time, and Two: Approximate demarcator of constellations in other cosmos. These two installations approach the idea of “co-incident” events from complementary perspectives. Coincidence Engine One (watch) assembles a large number of unsynchronized clocks whose combined ticking sounds produce an unusual and intriguingly organic sonic environment. Coincidence Engine Two (watch) develops a sophisticated synchronization control and amplification system around a group of specially-modified clocks that enables the artists to articulate audio-visual compositions by programming and sequencing the clocks’ ticking behaviour.

The notion of concrete sound, and the specificity of the listener’s relationship to sound sources in space are central to [The User]’s approach. Continue reading

The Anarchy of Silence – John Cage [no Høvikodden]

johncage.jpgThe Anarchy of Silence – John Cage :: until May 30, 2010 :: Henie Onstad Art Centre, 1311 Høvikodden, Norway.

John Cage (1912-1992) defined a radical practice of “experimental” composition that not only changed the course of modern music and dance but defined a new conceptual horizon for artistic practice in the late-20th century. Illuminating the relevance of Cage’s contribution to contemporary art, Henie Onstad Art Centre presents the most extensive exhibition to be devoted to the artist since his death, and the first to focus on the historicization of the composer’s oeuvre and its impact.

The Anarchy of Silence – John Cage tracks systematically the critical developments in Cage’s career: from his work with percussion (1930s), to the prepared piano (1940s), to chance and indeterminacy (1950s), to new media (1960s onward), through to the political focus that ever more explicitly informed the work in the last decades of his life. Cage ushered in formal, structural, temporal, and media innovations that now form cornerstones of contemporary consciousness. Continue reading
