Radius Episode 57: Amanda Gutiérrez [us Chicago, IL]

radius.jpgRadius Episode 57: Giants Are Sleeping (00:00*) by Amanda Gutiérrez :: Installation and Broadcast from Comfort Station, Logan Square, Chicago :: November 29, 2014, 7:00 – 10:00 pm (CST).

Giants Are Sleeping aims to reflect the identity, transformation, and ownership of one Chicago electrical substation. Exploring the relationship between human memory and architecture, the installation pairs an interview with Kenneth Corrigan, a bookseller who inhabited the abandoned electrical substation in 1984, with a charcoal animation that uses substation photo archives as its main reference. Drawing techniques are the vehicle to convey symbolic connections that link the historical aspects of these buildings, while the radio becomes the narrative’s voice over. Continue reading

Phill Niblock: Aomori Water

phillniblock_0_301_740_358_682_330.jpgAmori Water will play at the Listening Gallery, SFCA [isaw+subtropocs] :: studio 101, 924 Lincoln road, miami beach :: until May 1, 2013 ::

“Aomori Water is a sound collage piece made in 1998, in Aomori Japan. I was in a residency with other artists. A Japanese sculptor was making a round house and wanted a sound piece to play in it. I recorded some very gentle waves lapping the beach, for the first part. And a very small mountain stream, flowing, for the second part. I layered 8 tracks. This was the first work that I did in ProTools.” — Phill Niblock

Call: Exploring Worlds of Participatory Art, Architecture, & Music

overlaidrealities.jpgCall for Submissions :: Worldmaking as Techné: Exploring Worlds of Participatory Art, Architecture, & Music:

The editors of this book project were drawn together by a common outlook that the creation of work is the creation of concepts, joining the efforts of theory and praxis in one process (techné), and that the results of our works are the expression of an ontological proposition (worldmaking). This connection was the catalyst to host the panel discussion, The Volatility and Stability of Worldmaking as Techné, at the Inter-Society of Electronic Arts conference 2011 (ISEA 2011).

Calabi Portal Project RFQ

Calabi Portal Projecta laboratory for ideas and the imagination :: Call for Proposals — No Deadline.

This competition is open to visionary designers, artists, architects, and scientists, and any collaborative combination. All designs will be theoretical. No background or experience in engineering, construction, or actual fabrication materials is required as the structure will be self-generating and assembling. The challenge is to conceive of the possibilities of an architectural visualization of 10 dimensional space incorporating the six dimensional Calabi-Yau manifold. The proposed structure is to take the form of what we loosely describe as a “Tower”, and is open to interpretation. It may also contain or emanate light and sound.

See website for more information. Sponsored by the Multiverse Research Institute.

“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

Live Stage: Experiments on the Notation of Shapes [hk Hong Kong]

ens1.jpgExperiments on the Notation of Shapes by Joao Vasco Paiva :: February 12 – April 4, 2010 :: Opening Reception: February 12; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: Artist Talk: March 24; 7:00 pm :: Unmeasured Music: March 31; 7.30 pm :: I/O (Input/ Output), 31 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.

Experiments on the Notation of Shapes by Portuguese artist and Hong Kong resident, Joao Vasco Paiva, is a generative multi-channel video installation where Hong Kong cityscapes are used as coordinates for sound synthesis. Computational translation, footage of urban planning and architectural elements are used as a musical score. In this work, a post-apocalyptic aura consumes the concrete form of the metropolis. Two wall-based projections present Hong Kong cityscapes. The city, its emptiness and its structure are kept in “time images” that solicit contemplation. Continue reading

orbitor by Mark Bain renders architecture audible [nl Middelburg]

mark_bain_orbitor.jpg orbitor by Mark Bain (USA) :: January 16, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. to February 14, 2010 :: De Vleeshal, Markt, Middelburg, Netherlands ::

From 17 January through to 14 February 2010 the Foundation for Visual Arts Middelburg (Stichting Beeldende Kunst Middelburg) will present American artist Mark Bain’s exhibition orbitor at De Vleeshal, on the Markt. The exhibition’s opening, on 16 January at 5 p.m., will be marked by an audio performance by Mark Bain.

In orbitor, Mark Bain uses the De Vleeshal itself, once Middelburg’s town hall, as an instrument. As do all buildings, De Vleeshal produces sound: the resonant history of different materials in time and space. Here electricity, radio waves and other social systems continually circulate; hidden movements of which we are not always aware. Continue reading
