Another Year of Turbulence.org!

Dear Friends,

We need your support! Donations are tax-deductible for US Residents.

About to embark on its 33rd year, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. — an independent not-for-profit organization founded in New York City — continues to commission networked art for its world-renowned website Turbulence.org (1996-): its over 220 works span a crucial 16-year period of exploration and innovation in digital networked environments, ranging from hypertext to data visualization, blogs to social networks, and interactive dance/musical compositions to 3-D architecture and iPhone apps.

The following commissions launched in 2012:

L-Carrier, by Eli Keszler, was installed and performed at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, and Chris Mann’s Public Works was performed at Issue Project Room.

Launching in 2013 are:

“Nothing You’ve Done” by Jason Nelson; “iSKY-TV” by iKatun; “Constellations over Playas” by Joe Moore; “Mark-It” by Esmerelda Kosmatopolous; “Submersible” by Yotam Mann; and “Valley of the Deer” by Jillian Mcdonald.

Andy Deck and Zannah Marsh will participate in a panel discussion about artistic uses of participatory media at Harvestworks. And Peter Traub will exhibit “WoodEar” at Pace Digital Gallery.

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

New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
124 Bourne Street
Roslindale, MA 02131

We wish you all a peaceful and prosperous 2013.

Warmly,

Helen Thorington and Jo-Anne Green
Co-Directors

Slime Mold Makes Music

physarum-sound.jpgPhysicists use electrical signals from slime mould (Physarum polycephalum) to make music. Using the electrical signals generated by slime mould to make music creates an instrument musicians can ‘play’ by zapping the creature with light, the Physics arXiv blog reports.

“Slime mould, is a single-celled creature that has attracted considerable attention in recent years for its ability to compute in unconventional ways. Various research groups have watched in barely disguised amazement as these single cells have solved mazes, recreated national motorway networks and even anticipated the timing of periodic events.”

Now this extraordinary creature has … another skill…”
