Live Stage: Daniel Perlin [us NYC]

n35881302513_4357.jpgre: construction – performance by Daniel Perlin :: November 18, 2008; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: Studio-X, 180 Varick Street, Suite 1610, New York, NY.

What do buildings sound like? What is the residue of a building? How do structures house the process of their construction? Multimedia artist Daniel Perlin will use screws, glue, nails, sawhorses, an audio cassette and a laptop to question work and construction as auditory processes. In re:construction — a layered, hour-long performance piece — Perlin will build a small house at Studio-X. Recording and manipulating samples from the construction process, he will simultaneously build a large orchestral work with rhythm, melody and harmony to be recorded onto a cassette tape in real-time. This cassette will then be housed in within this new structure as an artifact built to highlight process, and to archive the sounds of its own creation. Watch a video of re.drill: Continue reading

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

David Tagg – Waist Deep Seas of Milk (review) New York musician, David Tagg, has seen The Future of Modern Guitar. And this sonic seer’s astral projections are sumptuously spread across the ambient expanses of Waist Deep Seas of Milk, though all trace of twang, pluck and strum is dissolved in FX haze and spun out in endless echo returns. Review by Alan Lockett. Continue reading
