Live Stage: Jen Boyd [us Los Angeles]

jenboyd.jpgJen Boyd spends her free time collecting microscopic recordings of trees, plants, and other audible organic matter; and creating layered compositions in real-time with the use of a portable mixer. She captures natural sounds as they unfold. Working with contact microphones and a flash recorder, Boyd constructs stereo soundscapes to give depth to the delicate sounds of trees and plants alike. She has a BFA in music technology from CalArts and is currently working on her masters in electronic music at Mills College. While at Mills, Boyd plans to explore the depths of natural sound and their presentation as art in the form of live performance and sound installations. Jen is currently exploring various means of releasing her recorded works of natural sounds and plans to continue to build an archive of phonographies and contact recordings.

Boyd will perform at ctrl+alt+repeat [summer 2007], an evening of experimental electronics and new music :: August 5, 2007; 4:00 pm [$7-10 donation] :: Dangerous Curve, 1020 E. Fourth Place, Los Angeles, CA :: 213.617.8483 :: Directions. Continue reading

Wish You Were Here

wywh_mainpg.jpgWish You Were Here (2007) — by Colin Asquith, Terry Nauheim, and Jennifer Schmidt — is a collaborative sound installation that will be on exhibit at SIGGRAPH from August 5-9, at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA .

A site for interactivity and reception, Wish You Were Here is a collective soundscape of audio greeting cards meant to be experienced within the hands of participants through physical and aural sampling. Our sounds are of field recordings, fragmented and manipulated to reinterpret the conventional notion of a sentiment in the model of a greeting card. Re-contextualizing recorded material within this format places limits—including time, compression, and availability—while initiating an accessible, portable, and participatory narrative.

Net_Music_Weekly: Fringe Lake

mainimage.jpgJulie Freeman’s pioneering 2005 work of digital art, The Lake, deserves revisiting. Installed at the Tingrith Fishery over the summer of 2005, the work uses hydrophones, custom software and advanced technology to track the electronically tagged fish in the circular Fringe Lake and translate their movement into an audio visual experience.

Visitors of all ages are invited to come and listen to the fish composing their own soundscape while watching an animated representation of what’s really happening under the water. Listen to the fish:

Harvestwork’s Video Mash Up Classes

a7a1b567239eff1e86e915451f5a5185t4.jpgVideo Mash Up with Marlon Barrios Solano – A Harvestworks Digi Camp for Ages 9 and up :: Contact: Carol Parkinson 212-431-1130 x 12 :: Where: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway Suite 602 NYC 10012 (at Houston Street) :: 212-431-1130 :: Dates: August 6 – August 17 Monday – Friday Time: 10am – 1pm.

Video mashups is a new and experimental art form where videos from multiple sources are edited together into a new video. To date, many of these video mashups have been parodies, but even music mashups are being integrated with them to make combined audio-visual media mashups. The creation of “mashups” implies the capacity to meaningfully and creatively sample and remix media content. The video mashup has come of age thanks to the likes of YouTube, Rocketboom and others.

One Hand Waving

hothands_x220.jpgThe Sound of One Hand Waving by Erica Naone: Musicians can now control sound effects for electric instruments by waving a hand [from Technology Review].

A new device allows musicians to control sound effects with a wave of the hand. While electric guitarists typically control distortion effects with an array of foot pedals, the HotHand device, made by Source Audio, translates their gestures into the wah, phaser, and flanger effects that are popular for electric sound. A musician can wear the device as a ring, affix it to his or her head or torso, or allow someone else–such as the band’s vocalist–to use it to control effects. A wireless option leaves the wearer free to roam the stage.” As one reader has already remarked: Donald Swearingen and Pamela Z have been doing this since the 90s; and Laetitia Sonami has been waving her glove with amazing results for longer than that. But this device is new. Continue reading
