RadioVillageNomade

radiovillage.jpgWe are curating an online sound project and are interested in your participation. This audio project, RadioVillageNomade, will take place, day by day, for 214 days over 7 months (May-Nov 2008) at La Corbiere in Switzerland. An audio play will be created using material contributed by invited artists and sound manipulators from all over the world. The “transmission” at this point is via our website, where a new mp3 is posted daily. The mp3s will be available for download with the intention that they be reused as raw material for new submissions. Selected pieces will be also be broadcast on European public radio. At the end of the 214 days we will weave all submissions into a 24 hour audio play.

The aim of this project is to cultivate works out of sounds which were designed without the intent to distinguish themselves from others, sounds that highlight the ever changing moments that make up our collective realities. Continue reading

Livestage: Jason Freeman’s Flock at 01sj [us San Jose, CA]

0746001-p1-075_large.jpegJason Freeman’s Flock at the Zero1 Festival :: June 5 @ 8 pm :: June 6 @ 8 pm :: June 7 @ 4 pm and 6 pm :: MACLA :: 510 South First Street, San Jose.

In Flock, music notation, electronic sound, and video animation are all generated in real time based on the locations of musicians, dancers, and audience members as they move and interact with each other. Computer vision software analyzes video from an overhead camera to determine the location of each participant, and this data is used to create music notation for four jazz saxophonists, to render a video animation, and to generate an electronic soundtrack. By inviting the audience to help create the unique music and visuals for each performance, Flock seeks to reconcile concert performance with the dynamics of collaborative creation, multi-player games, and social networks to create an engaging live event.

NMR Commission: “The Telephone Game: Oil/Water/Ether” by PLOrk

nc_icon_wide.jpgThe Telephone Game: Oil/Water/Ether by the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) is an exploration of a real-time collaborative composition local network. All of the performers have identical performance/composition programs — a custom flexible step-sequencer — that invite play with rhythmic cycles of various lengths and timbres. The real fun starts, however, when the players begin spying on their neighbors, secretly, via the network, and stealing their ideas with the click of the mouse. Unplanned structures begin to emerge, like oil on water, as riffs propagate and evolve, sometimes returning unrecognizable to their creators. Continue reading
