Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus will use their Sync Armonica, a 9 ft. sculptural, analog, handmade A/V synthesizer and electrical signals gathered from guest performers. LoVid events are playful yet aggressive, with realtime audiovisuals that are immersive, visceral and intensely colorful, patterned and rhythmic. Works combine handmade and machine produced craft, DIY electro-engineering, textile, video and noise.

Saturday they’ll premiere two new works — fast-flickering “C/O/L/O/R/G/B” with a new synthesizer color wheel, and “Becoming One.2.” Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Scale

scale_electricfish.jpgScale is a bio-art collaboration with neurobiologist/ engineer Malcolm MacIver, visual/ conceptual artist Marlena Novak, and composer/ sound designer Jay Alan Yim. It is being presented at STRP Festival, Eindhoven, Netherlands.

This audience-interactive installation involves electric fish from the Amazon River Basin. Twelve different species of these fish comprise a ‘choir’ whose sonified electrical fields provide the source tones for an immersive audiovisual environment. The interface for Scale incorporates custom-designed software, a hacked Wiimote ‘conductor’s baton’ that participants can use to ‘cue’ individual fish so their unadulterated tones (as well as digitally processed versions) can be heard through the audio system, a touchscreen panel to allow for changes in volume, and arrays of LEDs under each tank to provide visual feedback to visitors.

In the era of networked technology, we appear to live in an integrated global community where human relations and perceptions are conceived through various manifestations of a non-physical world of connections. We collectively build and spontaneously find refuge in virtual communities whose inhabitants experience incongruity and fragmentation, along with conformity and wholeness. Continue reading

Live Stage: Listening by The School of Sound [uk London]

It is rare to listen as a group. Whether at a concert or the theatre, in a cinema, facing some sort of screen or out on the street, we have images to keep our hearing company.

This is an opportunity for an audience to listen, together, without pictures. To immerse themselves in unfamiliar worlds and strange stories; to confront unexpected emotions, feelings, impressions; to share the unseen with those around you – all through sound. Narrative, abstract, radio, sound art – Listening! extends from documentary to the surreal, focusing particularly on the voice. Continue reading

ARmonica, a collaborative augmented reality game

music.jpgCollaborative Augmented Reality makes beautiful music with ARmonica :: Two players bounce virtual balls off musical note bars using Wii remotes.

From Technology Review, 11/17/2010 : Augmented reality (AR) places interactive, virtual objects and effects over the real world, and it has huge potential for gaming. Imagine wearing an AR headset to play chess with animated virtual pieces on a real chess board, or to fight computerized zombies running into your own home.

For this to happen, computer scientists need to make sure players’ views and motions are in sync, which is doubly hard with two players, because both players need to see the virtual objects in the same space. Continue reading
