Tim Sweet on Electric Eclectics

9272007-ts6.jpg[Image: Edwin van der Heide’s Speed of Sound in the granary] “… Later that evening Seattle-based instrument inventor, Trimpin, performed his mechanized one-man band. He controlled two record players, a keyboard, and his wheelbarrow rhythm machine from sensors on a cello, and took us on a humorous music-making journey. As he “played” his cello, sensors tracked the movement of the bow and cued the turning of the records, sequences on the keyboard (a series of intricate automated “fingers”), and mechanized mallets made rhythms on found objects and drums that were mounted in a rusty wheelbarrow. The records’ self-reflective spoken word content (an instructional on the making of music and sound) punctuated the enigmatic story being told… Continue reading

radiovillage.jpgWe are curating an online sound project and are interested in your participation. This audio project, RadioVillageNomade, will take place, day by day, for 214 days over 7 months (May-Nov 2008) at La Corbiere in Switzerland. An audio play will be created using material contributed by invited artists and sound manipulators from all over the world. The “transmission” at this point is via our website, where a new mp3 is posted daily. The mp3s will be available for download with the intention that they be reused as raw material for new submissions. Selected pieces will be also be broadcast on European public radio. At the end of the 214 days we will weave all submissions into a 24 hour audio play.

The aim of this project is to cultivate works out of sounds which were designed without the intent to distinguish themselves from others, sounds that highlight the ever changing moments that make up our collective realities. Continue reading

Hold uses moving image and technology to reveal the hidden intricacies of human immersion in the wide, complex world. Continue reading

Live Stage: Cory Arcangel [us Brooklyn]

arcangel.jpgCory Arcangel’s Bruce Springsteen Born to Run Glockenspiel Addendum :: August 5, 2008; 8:00 pm :: Light Industry, 55 33rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, New York :: Tickets – $6, available at door.

Artist Cory Arcangel appears at Light Industry to perform the first complete and authoritative version of his now-notorious Bruce Springsteen Born to Run Glockenspiel Addendum. This appearance marks the first time “and perhaps last” that Arcangel will provide live accompaniment on glockenspiel to Springsteen’s canonical album in its entirety, alongside the premiere of a new video featuring Springsteen and the E Street Band.

“In 2006, on a whim, I decided to go uptown to Sam Ash music store, buy a Glockenspiel and record glockenspiel parts for the songs on Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run record that did not already feature that instrument. Most everything I have ever made has been ignited from a similar semi-destructive whim. Continue reading

David Tagg – Waist Deep Seas of Milk (review) New York musician, David Tagg, has seen The Future of Modern Guitar. And this sonic seer’s astral projections are sumptuously spread across the ambient expanses of Waist Deep Seas of Milk, though all trace of twang, pluck and strum is dissolved in FX haze and spun out in endless echo returns.
