pz-rotary.jpg[photo courtesy of Ars Electronica, Linz] Pamela Z solo concert :: March 30, 2010; 8:00 pm :: The Stone, Avenue C and 2nd Street, New York City .

Pamela Z performs a concert of short solo works for voice and electronics as part of the “Word + Music” series curated by Larry Ochs. The concert will consist of a selection of works involving language, including some excerpts from her work “Parts of Speech”, some new pieces, and a few tape pieces.

Live Stage: No Images, A Performance in the Dark [ca Toronto]

n370543211462_5928.jpgNo Images, a performance in the dark :: April 6, 2010; 7:00 – 8:00 pm :: Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue, Toronto, ON.

Developed by curators Pablo de Ocampo, Jacob Korczynski and Christof Migone, No Images features the work of Ryan Driver, Annie MacDonell, Alexis O’Hara & Mary Margaret O’Hara and Alex Snukal. Imagine a pitch-black space. Immersed in absolute darkness, you cannot see your own hand, you have no idea of the size of the space that you are in, and your sense of time is completely lost. One’s typical dependence upon an encounter anchored by eyesight is replaced by an amorphous and immersive environment. This presentation strategy is not only ideally suited for sound art, it is also a radical engagement of the senses by way of complete deprivation of the visual. Continue reading

Live Stage: Archival Records [hk Hong Kong]

ebf3250-5d90-48e3-8471-1e4af4c76.jpgArchival Records @ Asia Art Archive, a sound installation by Cédric Maridet, Hong Kong :: exhibition from February 2, 2010 to May 5, 2010 :: Opening: February 11, 2010; 6.30 – 8:00 p.m :: Hollywood Centre 11th Floor, 233 Hollywood Road, Hong Kong.

Archival Records intends to articulate the Archive’s physical and material space through the medium of sound, and establish a new connection between the Archive’s ‘voices’. It focuses on the realm bridging textual readings (of printed material) and their vocal counterparts, through multilingual audio recordings of excerpts from the collection, supplemented by ambient sounds at the Archive. This sound installation not only aims at exploring the idea of the Archive, but also rediscovering the mechanics of sensory experiences and aural cognition through a composed technological mediation of experience.

Moan Along

[youtube][/youtube]A complaints choir rehearsed in Japan before its performance at the Mori Art Museum last month. The group’s litany of grievances focused on work more than those of choirs in other places.

As Ko Sasaki reports in The New York Times : Recently a group of about 100 Tokyo residents put their complaints into a pile and a composer, Okuchi Shunsuke, turned them into a song. About 80 of the complainers (accompanied by an accordion, a bass cello and a tambourine) then performed the composition at various sites around the city, becoming the latest example of what has become known as a complaints choir.

A tribute to a small river that is a symbol of a region that (still) can live in a well-balanced interaction with nature. Continue reading
