NMR Commission: “The Telephone Game: Oil/Water/Ether” by PLOrk

nc_icon_wide.jpgThe Telephone Game: Oil/Water/Ether by the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) is an exploration of a real-time collaborative composition local network. All of the performers have identical performance/composition programs — a custom flexible step-sequencer — that invite play with rhythmic cycles of various lengths and timbres. The real fun starts, however, when the players begin spying on their neighbors, secretly, via the network, and stealing their ideas with the click of the mouse. Unplanned structures begin to emerge, like oil on water, as riffs propagate and evolve, sometimes returning unrecognizable to their creators. Continue reading

Olinda: a prototype digital radio

olinda-broken-in-three-orange-first.jpgOlinda is a prototype digital radio that uses modular hardware that is customizable for each user. It has your social network built in, showing you the stations your friends are listening to. Six lights on Olinda show when a close friend is listening to the radio, using wifi and Radio Pop, the BBC’s website for sharing ‘now playing’ information. Each light is a button: you can tune in to listen along with them, discovering new stations via your social network.

A friend will always appear at the same light, so you can write or draw on the radio to label it, and the lights are bright so you’ll know a friend has started listening from across the room. Continue reading

Musical Genes

music-genes.jpgWorld Science reports that musical genes may be coming to light. In their April 30, 2008 Special to World Science, they report on a first small study that suggests that musical ability is partly genetic and may share evolutionary roots with language. Finnish scientists say they’ve found “approximate locations in our genome where genes affecting musical talent may lie.” The study was made on 254 individuals from 15 Finnish families, all with some musical talent. It was published in the April 18 advance online issue of the Journal of Medical Genetics.
