micro.jpg American Festival of Microtonal Music (AFMM) under the direction of Johnny Reinhard, presents a concert :: May 15, 2010; 8:00 p.m. :: Church of St. Luke in the Fields, 487 Hudson Street, New York City.

Spotlights: Madeleine Shapiro‘s performance of Ge Gan-Ru’s YI-SENG (Lost Style) for solo amplified cello scordatura (Shanghai, 1968). 10-year old twin Gayageum players Sarah and Stephanie Yoon present the traditional Korean standard known as SANJO on their 12-string instruments in an ancient microtonal tuning (think “whammy-bar” zithers). Also, 25-string Gayageum virtuoso Rami Seo introduces her NEXUS in confluence with bassoon (Johnny Reinhard), cello (Madeleine Shapiro), and Terpstra synthesizer (Joshua Pierce). The Terpstra synthesizer, a honeycomb keyboard design of 55 tones per octave over 5 octaves designed by Siemen Terpstra (Amsterdam), is heard publicly in its debut this evening with support from Harvestworks. Pianist Joshua Pierce plays in a 53-tone equal temperament subset for DREI KLAVIERSTÜCKE, as imagined by composer Arnold Schönberg.

Live Stage: Turbulence @ Issue Project Room [us NYC] Presents Two World-Premiers at Issue Project Room: The Occupants by Stephan Moore + Moments of Inertia by R. Luke Dubois, with Todd Reynolds :: April 9, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Issue Project Room, At the Old American Can Factory, 232 3rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY :: Admission: $10 — Tickets.

The Occupants — by Stephan Moore — is a generative composition with some aspects that can be influenced through single- or multi-user interaction. Moore has used the piece to search for answers to both profound and insipid questions, such as: What does it mean to compose a “site-specific” composition when the site is the internet? Can a generative algorithm be imparted with a sense of long-term form that is also not pre-determined? How successfully can humans be programmed to be good collaborators with software algorithms, towards the latters’ goals? Continue reading

Live Stage: [byTEN] [Chatroulette]

1× [byTEN] is a live “concert” improvisation created for the Chatroulette social network. Audio in the performance is generated from screen grabs taken of the first 10 people that appeared during a previous visit to the website. These pictures in turn became the graphic notation that loosely scores the work. Through this process Jason Sloan becomes the conductor while the anonymous Chatroulette users become the unaware orchestra.

The individual scores are created using software that reads the RGB pixel information across the X axis of the image and assigns a unique tone to each colored pixel. Two 20 minute movements of [byTEN] will be performed live on the Chatroulette network March 20, 2010 at 10:00 pm EST [-5GMT]. Click through and see if you can find the performance. Documentation of [byTEN] will be made available.
