Live Stage: Machine Listening And Learning For Musical Systems [es Barcelona]

artificial_neural_network.jpgMachine Listening And Learning For Musical Systems:: with Nick Collins :: Pompeu Fabra University (Room 52.321, 3rd floor) Roc Boronat, 158. Spain :: July 7, 2012 :: 15:30h ::

Musical articial intelligences are playing an important role in new composition and performance systems. Critical to enhanced capabilities for such machine musicians will be listening facilities modeling human audition, and machine learning able to match the minimum 10000 hours or ten years of intensive practice of expert human musicians. Future musical agents will cope across multiple rehearsals and concert tours, or gather multiple commissions, potentially working over long musical lifetimes; they may be virtuoso performers and composers attributed in their own right, or powerful musical companions and assistants to human musicians.

So far the project is at the prototype stage. Borland’s been calling them ‘EarShots’. Stay tuned.

The Global Composition: Conference on Sound, Media and the Environment [de Frankfurt]

global_composition.jpgThe Global Composition: Conference on Sound, Media and the Environment :: July 25-28, 2012 :: Darmstadt/Media Campus Dieburg (Hochschule Darmstadt), Frankfurt, Germany :: Call for Submissions — Deadline: March 12, 2012.

The sonic environment is an indicator for the quality of life: One crucial aspect, however, remains open and leads to a multitude of questions: Is this, what our hearing is exposed to, satisfying and enhancing our individual, social, functional, biological, economical, aesthetic and existential needs and endeavors? If not, which concepts exist to “orchestrate” everyday life’s cacophony? Which methods exist to successfully evaluate the quality of soundscapes? Continue reading

Interference Journal’s First Issue

migone_front.jpgInterference Journal is a journal that looks at the role of sound in cultural practices. The first issue is now live and can be viewed at here.

The title of the inaugural issue of Interference – An Ear Alone is Not a Being: Embodied Mediation in Audio Culture – acknowledges acoustic practices that involve not just the ear but a corporeal body that senses, resonates, transduces and responds to sound, and furthermore, seeks to emphasize the legacy of this embodied listening subject in the practices, media, and conceptual frameworks that make up audio cultures. ‘Embodied mediation’ presumes a reciprocal process: the texts in this issue explore not only how listening experiences and acoustic practices are shaped by corporeality, but also attend to the many ways in which those processes work upon that body, through psychophysical affect and the representation and encoding of listening subjects in acoustic performances, technologies and cultural artefacts. — From “Editorial” by Rachel O’Dwyer

Honor Harger: A History of the Universe in Sound

Artist-technologist Honor Harger listens to the weird and wonderful noises of stars and planets and pulsars. In her work, she tracks the radio waves emitted by ancient celestial objects and turns them into sound, including “the oldest song you will ever hear,” the sound of cosmic rays left over from the Big Bang.
