Turbulence Spotlight: “MUPS” by Jhave

jhave.jpgTurbulence Spotlight: MUPS by Jhave:

MUPS (MashUPs) is an online sonic mashup engine specifically designed to allow spoken-word poetry mp3s to interweave simultaneously as if a group of performers were speaking together. MUPS has been seeded with MUPS 1260 audio poems from the PennSound archives; it can play up to 32 streams simultaneously. In spite of the playful tone of the introduction, MUPS is intended as a digital augmentation in the study of prosody. As computational analysis advances it is feasible to foresee cultural heritage archives such as PennSound operating as sites where digital tools permit innovative explorations into the evolution of poetics.

Call: Mash-ups [us Lake Forest, IL]

4210__w9z5645_dd0ab793d1de48018fe553831bfcc4d7.jpgCall for Mash-ups :: To be exhibited February 24, 2010 – April 1, 2010 :: at the Sonnenschein and Albright Galleries, Durand Art Institute Building on the campus of Lake Forest College, IL, USA :: Deadline: 6 January 2011 ::

Contemporary art has seen a marked increase in practices that defy traditional descriptions of media. Categories like painting, drawing, sculpture and photography no longer suffice to describe the full range of processes and forms that artists engage. Even relatively newer media categories like conceptual art, video art and performance art cannot encompass what many artists today do in their studios and in the streets. Many artists approach subject matter conceptually or thematically, choosing materials, processes and forms that resonate with a particular theme, while others complicate formal concerns directly by working through and across many media at once, or sequentially, arriving at products that resist easy categorization.

Net_Music_Weekly: ThruYou

thruyou.jpgLike so many of us, Ophir Kutiel enjoys cruising YouTube, land of a million amateur film clips. Unlike the rest of us, the 27-year-old Israeli musician and producer – who goes by the name Kutiman – has found in his virtual wanderings the raw materials for a groundbreaking project called ThruYou: seven original songs made by mixing dozens upon dozens of music clips that have been uploaded to YouTube. — Boston Globe

After disclosing ThruYou to just twenty friends, Kutiman’s project spread virally across the web, racking up more than one million views in less than a week. After viewing ThruYOU, open source advocate Lawrence Lessig praised the project as a pioneer of a new, less regulated form of media, saying “If you come to the Net armed with the idea that the old system of copyright is going to work just fine here, this more than anything is going to get you to recognize: you need some new ideas.” — Wikipedia Continue reading

Cheryl L’Hirondelle Sings the Landscape [ca Vancouver]

songlines.jpgCheryl L’Hirondelle nikamon ohci askiy (songs because of the land) :: until February 2009 :: Vancouver, B.C.

This project explores the relationship between sound, space and identity as experienced through a cree worldview. By creating a “performative audio map”, L’Hirondelle will negotiate a journey through new territory, developing a nomadic relationship with the land. Her actions/singing will be in direct response to her encounters within the territory – the physical environment she finds herself in and its inhabitants.

During the month of December, the artist will make daily journeys throughout Vancouver and “sing” the landscape she encounters. These encounters will be captured by mobile phone by the artist and whatever other technologies are made available by participating viewers/audience (video, photo, audio). Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Song of Solomon

sos_1.jpg[Image: Solomon Linda and the Evening Birds, ca. 1941] Song of Solomon — by Ralph Borland and Julian Jonker — is an aleatoric audio collage and 8-channel installation that samples many versions of Mbube, aka Wimoweh aka The Lion Sleeps Tonight, in a sonic tribute to the song’s dead author Solomon Linda. By fragmenting and reordering compositional fragments of this ‘song of songs’, the installation questions the assumptions about compositional innovation and imitation that inform Western intellectual property law. In this jungle of sounds, the dead Author rests.
