Neuroplanets

neuro_pic_1.jpgNeuroplanets — Conceived and directed by Novi_sad with original audio compositions from BJ Nilsen | Sweden, Daniel Menche | U.S.A, Francisco López | Spain and Mika Vainio | Finland.

Neuroplanets is an audio project which explores the aesthetics of information on sound. Initially, I worked in commissioned tracks from other artists, by transmitting on them sound analysis results from extremely rare sonic phenomena in other planets. After that, I manipulated these tracks by applying on them numerical/quantitative data and statistical elements from Neurosciences research in serious diseases. My aim was to ‘visualize’ on sound the diseases characteristics and impact on human nature. Continue reading

Composing with Process: Perspectives on Generative and Systems Music #4.1

macba.jpgComposing with Process: Perspectives on Generative and Systems Music #4.1: Time (62′ 02”) :: Curated by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore. Narrated by Connie Treanor.

The fourth episode in this series introduces the idea of time and its relationship to musical practices. The show opens with thoughts about time drawn from philosophy, science and musicology and shows how these are expressed in musical form, and looks at the origins of sonic action, musical behaviors and notational systems as a way of engaging with the temporal realm. With a specific reference to the emergence of sound recording technologies – both vinyl and tape – the show examines how new technologies have impacted musical vocabularies and changed the relationship between sound, time and music. It closes with a brief look at how computer based editing has extended this paradigm and opened the way for stochastic methods of sound generation. Continue reading

Live Stage: Sonic Acts – Travelling Time [nl Amsterdam]

2299190800_a9aa5056c0.jpgSonic Acts – Travelling Time :: February 23-26, 2012 :: Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Travelling Time is the fourteenth edition of Sonic Acts, and its theme is the human experience of time. Time dictates our schedule; time gives us structure. We think of ourselves as living in the present, with the past behind us, moving towards the future. But in fact, there is nothing so complex and ambiguous as time: the arrival the early twentieth century of the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics has tampered with our straightforward concept of time. The ongoing development and application of technology is challenging, changing and destabilising our sense of time. Continue reading

Interference Journal’s First Issue

migone_front.jpgInterference Journal is a journal that looks at the role of sound in cultural practices. The first issue is now live and can be viewed at here.

The title of the inaugural issue of Interference – An Ear Alone is Not a Being: Embodied Mediation in Audio Culture – acknowledges acoustic practices that involve not just the ear but a corporeal body that senses, resonates, transduces and responds to sound, and furthermore, seeks to emphasize the legacy of this embodied listening subject in the practices, media, and conceptual frameworks that make up audio cultures. ‘Embodied mediation’ presumes a reciprocal process: the texts in this issue explore not only how listening experiences and acoustic practices are shaped by corporeality, but also attend to the many ways in which those processes work upon that body, through psychophysical affect and the representation and encoding of listening subjects in acoustic performances, technologies and cultural artefacts. — From “Editorial” by Rachel O’Dwyer
