Live Stage: Pamela Z at The Kitchen [us NYC]

pamelaz_fall2010_large.jpgPamela Z: Baggage Allowance :: September 16-18, 2010; 8:00 pm :: The Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

San Francisco-based artist Pamela Z presents her latest solo performance for voice, electronics, and interactive video that considers “baggage” in all its literal and metaphorical permutations. She is best-known for her signature style of experimental performance works that meld sampling technologies and live electronic processing with operatic bel canto and extended vocal techniques.

Drawing from her own extensive traveling as well as other travelers’ experiences, this new work contends with the ball-and-chain-ness of dragging one’s belongings all over the world. Through manipulation of layers of visual and sonic material through various custom controls and devices live on stage, Baggage Allowance scans and inventories the objects (and memories) we all cart around with us.

Remix and the The Rouelles of Media Production

networked.jpgRead | Write Remix and the Rouelles of Media Production by Mette Birk, Mark Cantwell, Owen Gallagher, Eli Horwatt, Martin Leduc, Eduardo Navas, Tara Zepel — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: Remix and the Rouelles of Media Production explores concepts of remixing not only in content and form, but also in process. The aim of the collaboration is to evaluate how the creative process functions as a type of remix itself in a period when production keeps moving toward a collective approach in all facets of culture. The emphasis on video remixing is the result of a collaborative rewriting activity among the contributors, who each wrote independent paragraphs that went through constant revisions once combined as a single text.

“Moments of Inertia” by R. Luke Dubois w/Todd Reynolds

moments_of_inertia.jpgTurbulence Commission: Moments of Inertia by R. Luke DuBois, with Todd Reynolds:

Moments of Inertia is an evening-length performance based on a teleological study of gesture in musical performance and how it relates to gesture in intimate social interaction. The work is written for solo violin with real-time computer accompaniment and video. Moments consists of twelve violin études written for Todd Reynolds – ranging from 1-10 minutes in length – each of which uses a different violin performance gesture as a control input for manipulating a short piece of high-speed film (300 frames-per-second) – of objects and people in motion. Taking its cue from principles in physics that determine an object’s resistance to change, the violinist’s gestures time-remap and scrub the video clip to explore the intricacies of the performed action.

Live Stage: The OpenEnded Group [us Troy, NY]

open.jpgThe OpenEnded Group: Upending with music by Morton Feldman followed by The Making of Upending with The OpenEnded Group :: March 25 and 26, 2010, 7:00 p.m. (Matinee: March 27, 2:00 p.m.) :: Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, EMPAC @ Rensselaer, 110 8th Street, Troy, NY.

Upending is a revelatory stereoscopic theater performance: an animated, actor-less drama of disorientation and reorientation that compels viewers to rethink their relationship with the material world. Using ordinary flat photographs and stereoscopic HD video as the basis for a battery of non-photorealistic rendering technique, Upending transfigures familiar objects, spaces, and persons in ways that are both beautiful and uncanny.

Fred Viola and Guille Lopez, The Turn

viola.jpgThe 2009 [13th] Japan Media Arts Festival is now over, but its Art Division has recommended a number of works that are well worth looking at.

Among them, is Fredo Viola’s The Turn, an interactive, toy-like site that showcases Fredo Viola’s music and unique video work. Traditional rectangular videos are joined by circular and hexagonal works, which can be turned. When shapes collide they generate sounds that create a musical instrument in conjunction with the interactive background music and adjustable physics parameters.

Viola collaborated with artist Guille Lopez in creating The Turn.
