New Flesh Network (2011)

New Flesh Network is a musical performance for choir – controlled by The Musical Turk :: by Olle Cornéer and Martin Lübcke ::

New Flesh Network from Olle Corneer on Vimeo.

Every person in the choir wears a pair of ear muffs cancelling out all sounds, making them hear only the instructions that they individually receive in their in-ear headphones. The music is improvised and reflects the network it is a part of. Every person executes a simple task, but the result is complex and organic. Continue reading

Contribute to Another Year of Turbulence!

Dear Friends,

We’re half-way through our end of year fundraiser. Please make a donation (tax-deductible for US residents) before December 31.

Now embarking on its 32nd year, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. — an independent not-for-profit organization founded in New York City — continues to agitate the institutional art world through its trailblazing projects, including New American Radio (1987-1998), (1996-), Networked _ Performance (2004-), Networked _ Music _ Review (2007-), and Networked: a (networked _ book) about (networked _ art) (2009-).

Since 1981, NRPA has commissioned more than 500 works by more than 400 artists, many of them just beginning their careers. The archive spans a crucial 15-year period of exploration and innovation in digital, networked environments, ranging from hypertext to information visualization, blogs to social networks, and interactive dance/musical compositions to 3-D architecture.

Here’s what Régine Debatty and Timothy Murray have said about

“Turbulence because they’ve been consistently commissioning … and because they have a great blog called Networked_Performance that documents better (much better) than me the calls, essays and events that interest the whole new media art community.” Régine Debatty, we-make-money-not-art, 2006

“Turbulence … has developed into a natural archive of Internet art, housing the largest representation of American art produced as networked art. Indeed, no other on-line exhibition project has played such an influential and lasting role.” Timothy Murray, The Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, 2011

Please help us keep doing what we’re doing by making a donation via PayPal on or by sending a check to:

New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
124 Bourne Street
Roslindale, MA 02131
United States of America

Thank you.

We wish you all a peaceful and prosperous 2012.

Patterns between spider silk/melodies linked

4-researchersl.jpgResearchers link patterns seen in spider silk, melodies:: a December article in by Denise Brehm

Graphic: Christine Daniloff

Using a new mathematical methodology, researchers at MIT have created a scientifically rigorous analogy that shows the similarities between the physical structure of spider silk and the sonic structure of a melody, proving that the structure of each relates to its function in an equivalent way.

The step-by-step comparison begins with the primary building blocks of each item — an amino acid and a sound wave — and moves up to the level of a beta sheet nanocomposite (the secondary structure of a protein consisting of repeated hierarchical patterns) and a musical riff (a repeated pattern of notes or chords). The study explains that structural patterns are directly related to the functional properties of lightweight strength in the spider silk and, in the riff, sonic tension that creates an emotional response in the listener.
