NMR Commission: “More of the Same” by LoVid

moreofthesame_300_95_icon.jpgMore of the Same by LoVid [Start slowly with 1; close each popup window before launching the next] – More of the Same extends LoVid’s investigation of electrical irregularities and human interactions. After it loads copies of a single sound sample, fissures in the digital veneer are explored as the spoken communication is played back repeatedly. Though each instantiation of the speech is identical, physical constraints affect the timing. This allows the nature of the medium to peek through the cracks in the voices. Continue reading

Paraflows.10: Mind and Matter [at Vienna]

mind.jpgParaflows.10: Festival for Digital Art and Cultures — Mind and Matter :: Vienna :: Deadline: June 15, 2010.

Going into its 5th year, the paraflows festival in Vienna will focus on the interconnection between the programme and the object. Information technology is based on the distinction between hardware and software, and more often than not both systems are treated and discussed as independent of each other. paraflows .10 – Mind and Matter seeks to put on display how hard- and software, content and object in contemporary art not only co-exist, but also condition and shape each other.

What role does hardware play for media infrastructure? how is the net set up, what are the real pillars on which virtuality rests? How does the sculptural process look like, from a technological point of view? What are the effects of technological prospects on physical representation? Continue reading

Live Stage: Unique Sound and Imagery [us NYC]

plaster.jpgLISTEN IN with Threscwald: John McGill, Max Abeles, Pierce Warnecke :: March 19, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, New York City (at Houston St) :: free ::

Threscwald brings together three musicians working in the realm of digital audio and the performative arts. Brought together by a similar love – building software to create unique sound and imagery – they share creative processes that bear diverse yet homogenous results.

John Mcgill’s Lightning, Lizards of the Sky is a piece that attempts to harness various FFT-based effects originating in the Max/MSP environment. A sonic duality is conveyed using live audio signals to cut into saturated ‘noise’ textures. Using complex algorithms and generative techniques, Mcgill’s sound is born from a place of sensitivity towards abstract design and phrasing. Continue reading
