Radio Web Macba: Composing with Process

rwm.jpgRadio Web Macba ::Composing with Process is a series of six episodes, written and edited by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore, which explores generative approaches (including algorithmic, systems-based, formalised and procedural) to composition and performance primarily in the context of experimental technologies and music practices of the latter part of the 20th Century. Each episode is accompanied by an additional programme, entitled Exclusives, featuring unpublished sound pieces by leading sound artists working in the field. The first one on 21.09.2010 (51′ 59”) presents two contrasting generative works by German artist Florian Hecker and Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda.

Tracklist:
01:37 Florian Hecker ‘Stereo F.A.N.N.’, 2010 (30 min 2 s)
32:36 Ryoji Ikeda ‘untitled (for John Cage)’, 2005 (19 min 23 s)

Mysteries of the Inner Ear

ear.jpgThe Puzzle of Sound Amplification in the Inner Ear ::

One of the extraordinary features of the mammalian sound detection system is the range over which it works. This extends from 11 KHz in birds to 200 KHz in marine mammals.

This is only possible because the inner ear amplifies sounds by a factor of up to 4000. That’s a huge amount of gain. So much, in fact, that it’s hard to square with conventional thinking about mechanical amplification. So there is much head scratching among biologists over how the ear achieves this amplification.

hack.jpgMusic Hack Day Boston is back! :: Saturday, October 16 to Sunday, October 17, 2010 :: Microsoft NERD, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142 ::

The main goal of Music Hack Day is to explore and build the next generation of music applications. It’s a full weekend of hacking in which participants conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music + software + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it’s music related.

** Note for those who attended last year’s: this year’s will be more focused on hacking — we won’t have any panels.

Live Stage: Non-Cochlear Sound [us NYC]

in-the-blink-of-an-ear_cover.jpgNon-Cochlear Sound :: Curated by Seth Kim-Cohen :: Opening: October 1, 2010; 7:00 pm :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Floor, Brooklyn, NY :: Panel: October 28, Goethe-Institut, 72 Spring Street, 11th floor, New York City.

Sound, like everything else (maybe more than everything else), is a product of interaction: stick with skin, wheel with street, wind with grass. Logically, then, sound is also a product of the situations in which these interactions occur. Non-Cochlear Sound addresses sound as a conceptual, contextual construct. Non-Cochlear Sound might function in a sound-like fashion without specifically referencing or making sound, it might use sound as a vehicle for transporting ideas or materials from point A to point B, it might even make sound but only as an excuse for initiating other activities.

Net_Music_Weekly: Set Music Free

setmusicfree.jpgMusopen is a non-profit library of copyright free music. This project will use your donations to purchase and release music to the public domain. Right now, if you were to buy a CD of Beethoven’s 9th symphony, you would not be legally allowed to do anything but listen to it. You wouldn’t be able to share it, upload it, or use it as a soundtrack to your indie film- yet Beethoven has been dead for 183 years and his music is no longer copyrighted. There is a lifetime of music out there, legally in the public domain, but it has yet to be recorded and released to the public.

This isn’t just a crazy idea: we’ve done this before using donations from our website, but now we want to tackle something much more ambitious. Continue reading

Live Stage: Eng and Chatham [us NYC]

eng.jpgRhys Chatham with Kevin Jay and David Sims team up with Angie Eng for a multimedia concert :: October 15 and 16, 2010; 8 p.m. :: The Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

Paris-based musician and composer Rhys Chatham — the beloved first music curator of The Kitchen in the 1970s — has reached legendary status in experimental music circles, best-known most recently for high profile productions of his rugged noise symphonies written for hundreds of guitars. Media artist Angie Eng and Chatham team up for this live multi-media concert, with drummer Kevin Shea and electric bassist David Sims joining on stage. Playing both guitar and trumpet, Chatham deploys extended playing techniques inherited from the glory days of free jazz (Don Cherry, Bill Dixon, Jac Berrocal…) as well as leaders of the minimalist movement (Tony Conrad, Jon Hassell, La Monte Young…) of which he is one of the successors, arriving at a mix that ebulliently exits from his various horns and axes while simultaneously going through stomp boxes and electronic devices.
