Live Stage: Conference on Listening

listening.jpgThe American Society for Cybernetics has great pleasure in announcing a conversational conference on the theme of LISTENING :: August 9 to August 15, 2011 :: Richmond, Indiana. USA :: Sign up deadline: May 10, 2011 ::

We regard listening as the key act that turns talking into conversation. However, we use these words metaphorically, and not just literally: we do not mean to concentrate on the aural senses, but on the idea that it is the recipient who gives meaning to what they hear. This is how they release the potential in a statement made by another into conversation, whether the conversation is in words, acts, gestures, or indeed any other medium of communication. This can lead to the development of understanding of the other so important in human relations (perhaps specially in fields such as psycho-therapy, management, education and music). Continue reading

Live Stage: Looking at Music 3.0 [us New York, NY]

49524.jpgLooking at Music 3.0:: February 16 – June 6, 2011 :: The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Media Gallery, second floor, The Museum of Modern Art :: the third in a series of exhibitions exploring the influence of music on contemporary art practices, focuses on New York in the 1980s and 1990s. In this dynamic period, imaginative forms of street art spread across the five boroughs, articulating the counter-culture tenor of the times. As the city transitioned from bankruptcy to solvency, graffiti, media, and performance artists took advantage of low rents and collaborated on ad hoc works shown in alternative spaces and underground clubs. Appropriation, also known as remixing, thrived. Continue reading

Live Stage: Listening by The School of Sound [uk London]

school.jpgListening! by The School Of Sound :: November 25, 2010 :: Doors open at 7pm, Listening! begins at 7:30 sharp :: at The Horse Hospital, London Colonnade, off Russell Square, Bloomsbury London WC1N 1JD :: £5 entry at the door ::

It is rare to listen as a group. Whether at a concert or the theatre, in a cinema, facing some sort of screen or out on the street, we have images to keep our hearing company.

This is an opportunity for an audience to listen, together, without pictures. To immerse themselves in unfamiliar worlds and strange stories; to confront unexpected emotions, feelings, impressions; to share the unseen with those around you – all through sound. Narrative, abstract, radio, sound art – Listening! extends from documentary to the surreal, focusing particularly on the voice. Continue reading

Placard is a headphone concert festival, playing with concentration, intimacy,time warp,and teleportation.This year it goes on for 97 days non stop, in different cities. It functions under a mode of open program,open for headphone rooms to create performance spaces where performers are welcomed to perform.

NMR Commission: “Voices from the Paradise Network” by John Hudak

hudak_300.jpgVoices from the Paradise Network by John Hudak, with Flash programming by [Needs Flash Player and speakers on] – John writes: My mother-in-law passed away recently, reminding me of a technique that a parapsychologist named Dr. Konstantin Raudive (1906-1974) used to record what he purported to be voices of deceased spirits. With the amount of information moving around on the internet these days, and the passing of my mother-in-law, who I thought would want to get in touch (if possible), I thought I’d give Raudive’s technique a try within the digital realm.

The starting point of a Pascal Broccolichi exhibition is usually the close relationship created between the innumerable listening experiences afforded by the exhibition, and what one commonly calls the ‘background noise’. Therefore one cannot fully access the artist’s installations without remaining long enough inside the soundscapes he has composed. Continue reading

Live Stage: Radio Fragments [de Berlin]

radiofragments.jpgRadio Fragments: Transforming Radiophonic Silences into Sound Stories — A sound installation by Andre Castro :: January 4-8, 2010; 2:00 – 5:00 pm :: NK, Elsenstr. 52/2, Hinterhaus Etage 2, 12059 Berlin.

Radio Fragments is a radiophonic project that aims to explore an auditory attention, different from the one usually associated with the experience of listening to the radio, making use of the spaces-in-between-words-and-songs that occur throughout the radiophonic discourse as its main reagent.

Its basic formula consists of an analysis-control mechanism (built in Super Collider) residing inside a computer to which a real-time mainstream radio broadcast is fed. This mechanism acts as a reversed-noise-gate, singling out what is usually ignored or avoided in a radiophonic context (whispers, stumbles, pauses, dead spaces and errors) and muting all the other sounds such as words or songs.
