Live Stage: Sensor and Puredata Workshop [de Berlin]

wkshop.jpgPlug & Play Sensors & Puredata Workshop— taught by Servando Barreiro :: June 18-19, 2010; 2:00-7:00h pm :: NK, Elsenstr. 52/ 2.Hinterhaus Etage 2, 12059 Berlin Neukölln.

This workshop is an introduction to the world of the analog sensors (light, infrared, ultrasonic, accelerometer) that are used to control audio, video, midi applications and interactive installations. The “minitronics” board will be used to communicate with the computer because it’s cheap, plug&play, multi-platform and it doesn’t require any extra knowledge to use.

On the first day we will construct a “basic” sensor controller with a pair of light sensors and a pair of potentiometers. On the second day, I will explain the different interfacing possibilities with different softwares and also provide and explain some puredata patches that are ready to “work”. (all platforms)

Data-Driven Sound Synthesis [es Barcelona]

data_driven_synthesis.jpgData-Driven Sound Synthesis — a practical seminar with Stefan Kersten & Wernfried Lackner :: May 21-23, 2010 :: Hangar. Passatge del Marques de Santa Isabel, 40. Barcelona :: Limited places available; sign up at: info [at] lullcec.org.

Content-based analysis techniques, i.e. synthesis techniques guided by the acoustical and perceptual properties of the source sound material, have been rapidly gaining ground in the sound and music computing community in the last decade. This workshop acknowledges the importance of these new techniques and aims at helping the participants to experiment with content-based techniques and laying a groundwork for further exploration.

We will start by introducing a framework that allows experimentation with content-based analysis and recomposition of sound segments stored in a database with only minimal programming knowledge. Continue reading

Live Stage: Ryoji Ikeda + Mika Vainio [uk Manchester]

testpattern2.jpgFutureEverything 2010: Ryoji Ikeda + Mika Vainio :: May 12, 2010; 9:00 – 11:00 pm :: BBC Studio 7, Oxford Road, Manchester, United Kingdom :: Ryoji Ikeda – test pattern [live set] ::Mika Vainio [live] :: Buy tickets here :: Tickets also available from Eastern Bloc (Oldham Street), Piccadilly Records (Oldham Street), The Soup Kitchen (Spear Street) & Gaffs (Fallowfield).

An opportunity to see two of the world’s leading sound artists perform on the same stage. The challenging output of Japanese composer Ryoji Ikeda places emphasis on complex A/V terrain, with compositions deriving from a fascination with data, sound and light. Mika Vainio is best known as one half of the Finnish electronic duo Pan Sonic, and through his connections to the pioneering Sähkö record label he co-founded in 1993. Continue reading

Reblogged Sonicity, live data space

stanza_soncity.jpg“With the installation Sonicity, the English artist Stanza adds another significant chapter to his quest for new metaphors to translate the countless interactions produced by data passing through an environment into a sensory plane. Stanza’s aim is to create a data space that is perceived as alive. To achieve this goal he has installed a great number of sensors that are able to detect the smallest changes in variables (such as light, temperature, noise, humidity and the location of certain objects) in the building that houses the gallery. Each of these sensors provides information on the parameters being monitored. These data are then transformed by Sonicity into a sound environment through the use of a wireless network consisting of hundreds of small speakers positioned on the floor and walls of the exhibition space.

Reblogged Right Here, Right Now – HC Gilje’s Networks of Specificity

Posted by Mitchell Whitelaw on Teeming Void: This essay was commissioned by Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen, Norway, to coincide with HC Gilje’s solo exhibition blink (video below). It looks at Gilje’s recent work – which spans audiovisual installation, performance, hardware, and networked forms – through the notion of specificity (developed earlier here).

Storage in Collaborative Networked Art

networked.jpgRead | Write Storage in Collaborative Networked Art by Jason Freeman — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: This chapter explores the role of storage in media art and, more specifically, its role in collaborative creativity within the field of networked music. Through a series of paired analyses of works that differentially emphasize transmission and storage or which employ different approaches to storage, the chapter discusses different opportunities, challenges, and issues related to storage in collaborative, networked art. Music by the Rova Saxophone Quartet and by Nick Collins frames a discussion of composition and improvisation; two works by The Hub initiate an analysis of the influence of technology on network design and on collaborative models of shared material and shared control; broadcast works by Max Neuhaus introduce the concept of active storage systems; the online sites WebDrum and Jamglue raise questions about network latency and the persistency of storage; and Bicycle Built for 2,000 and Graph Theory manipulate the level of awareness of storage mechanisms by various participants.
