Sonic()bject

sonicobject.jpgThe mobile telephone is one of the first electronic objects that large numbers of people have personalized with sound. The ‘ringtone’ has become a familiar personal insignia.

tells_22cover_small.jpgThis Weekly is culled from a series of posts (1) (2) (3) on Continuo:

According to the Harvestworks website, TELLUS was created in 1983 at the Rum Runner Bar on Canal Street in New York City.

“Lifeforms” by Stanza

d.jpgLifeforms, by Stanza, are a series of generated paintings, based on the artists sampled and sequenced DNA profile. “My DNA was sequenced originally in 2003. I have made some slight changes and incorporated more data from my DNA sequences. The audio is playing along sequences of my DNA string.

Stanza is a UK based artist who specialises in net art, multimedia, and electronic music. His award winning online projects have been invited for exhibition in digital festivals around the world, and Stanza also travels extensively to present his net art, giving performances of his audiovisual interactions, and making exhibitions.

Interview: BubblyFish

bubblyfish_2.jpgListening Post: You have a classical background; what drew you to creating 8-bit music? What do you find alluring about the chiptune aesthetic?

Haeyoung Kim, BubblyFish: I started with classical music first, and moved on to electronic music. I have in electronic music and computer music, so experimental music. Classical is more my background. So I picked up a GameBoy, I guess 4 or 5 years ago already, and when I started using it, I just loved the sound of it, and part of the big deal is that there’s a huge limitation that does not require much music production at all. Since there’s such a limitation, I think I can push myself to be more creative, and think differently from the way that I usually create music, with more available tools…” From Interview: Chiptune Artist Haeyoung Kim, BubblyFish by Eliot Van Buskirk, Wired.

Then there is the qualifying text that the record label Important has placed alongside two MP3s it posted for Christina Kubisch’s album Night Flights, which is being brought back into print 20 years after its initial release and for the first time on CD. This text reads: “These mp3’s are incapable of giving you any real understanding of the perfect assemblies of sound Kubisch is able to achieve.”

Kubisch is one of the first of what one might call “fine artists” to use sound as her primary medium. Continue reading
