Rock Stars (And Proteins, Too)

How two groups of scientists coax music from nature

“From Led Zeppelin to Wolf Parade, rock music owes a debt to science-and to the scientists whose fascination with sound art spurred them to create new noises. A Russian physicist named Leon Theremin developed the world’s first electronic musical instrument: a box with antennae (appropriately called a “theremin”) that used electric circuits to create a range of otherworldly sounds. Four decades later, in 1964, an engineering physics Ph.D. named Robert Moog invented the synthesizer that bears his name. Now, a new generation of scientists and musicians continue to push the frontiers of musical possibility. Continue reading

ToneLadder

ToneLadder is a household ladder extended with a melodic function and made into a musical instrument. Stepping on a bar of the ladder creates a sound or tone which is different from rung to rung. This way, the ToneLadder can be used as a musical performing device. Most electronic music is performed quite similar using keyboards and laptops. ToneLadder offers and alternative way of performing music by letting the artist trigger sound loops by balancing on the ladder. Continue reading

Global Soundscape

The Mockingbird Project is a streaming, real-time, non-repeating, self-generating experiment in sound. Mike Skinner loaded in some of his own sounds but the most exciting part to me him is the ability for users to contribute their own small sound clips to the system. His hope is that as word gets out about the site people from around the world will contribute thus making it a truly global soundscape. Enjoy. And pass the word…

In February of 2006, Mike started a series of ambient 8 track/feedback/tape loop sound installation experiments. (The results of these experiments can be heard as the bottom, “foundation” layers of the Mockingbird project). At the same time, Mike also knew the limitations of these experiments: they are finite entropic experiences limited by time/sound sources/tape. He began to envision an online incarnation which, theoretically, can last forever, can run and develop 24 hours a day, and does not depend on the longevity of tape/tape machines or Mike’s presence to play them.
