Live Stage: Apple II Concert [us Los Angeles]

apple2jam.jpegApple II Concert :: June 25, 2011; 6:00 pm: Meeting of the Apple II owners/musicians; 8:00 pm: Concert :: Machine Project, 1200-D North Alvarado Street, Los Angeles, CA :: We are currently seeking Apple II owners to contribute to making this happen! Please contact machine [at] machineproject.com if you would like to participate!

The old Apple II, first introduced in 1977, was a revolutionary computer in many ways. Sound capabilities were not one of them. The Apple II’s sound system, unlike contemporaries such as the Atari 800 or Commodore 64, did not use a discreet sound chip, but rather a simple timer circuit that could be coaxed into creating square-wave tones. Most chiptune musicians tend to use sound-chip based systems, but there is a certain charm to square-wave tones. Some may define this charm as “annoyance.” Continue reading

Sewing Machine Orchestra

Sewing Machine Orchestra

Sewing Machine Orchestra from Martin Messier on Vimeo.

Eight old Singer sewing machines in a row are the musicians of the Sewing Machine Orchestra made by one of the two men behind La Chambre des Machines, Martin Messier. The sounds we hear are all created by the sewing machines. Apart from the sound this installation makes, the image of these classic machines put in a clean, modern environment is wonderful, and triggers the viewers memory and imagination.

Heart Chamber Orchestra: music from the heart

Heart Chamber Orchestra: Playing Music (Literally) from the Heart ::

Heart Chamber Orchestra – Pixelache from pure on Vimeo.

Heart Chamber Orchestra is an audio-visual performance during which 12 classical trained musicians control a music composition and a graphical visualization through their personal heartbeats.

The musical score is generated in real-time by the heartbeats of the musicians, who read and play this score from a computer screen placed in front of them. As a result, the installation forms a feedback loop in which the music literally “comes from the heart”. Continue reading

Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra

articlelarge.jpg[Image: Nicholas Bryan plays multiple iPhones during the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra’s Music for Iphones concert at the the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics] From Pocket to Stage, Music in the Key of iPhone, a December 4, 2009 article in the New York Times by Clair Cane Miller and Miguel Helft:

PALO ALTO, Calif. — An expectant hush fell over the audience as the director of the chamber ensemble, Ge Wang, came out and asked them to turn off their cellphones. The seven other musicians, dressed in black, filed in and took their positions in a circle. Ge Wang, a co-director of the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra, moved around the audience on Thursday, playing two iPhones. Ge Wang says the iPhone may be the first musical instrument, electronic or otherwise, that millions will carry in their pockets.

The conductor raised his hands. A low droning sound arose, as if the chamber ensemble were tuning. Then the musicians began to swing their arms in wide circles, creating rising and falling waves of electronic sound… Sometimes the sounds were otherworldly…. More: here.
