Exhibition on Sonic Interaction Design [no Oslo]

13_sid-catalogue-copy.jpgExhibition on Sonic Interaction Design :: Norwegian Museum of Science, Technology and Medicine, Norsk Teknisk Museum, Kjelsåsveien 143, 0491 Oslo, Phone: +47 22 79 60 00 :: May 29, 2011 to August 21, 2011 :

Boom… stroke… aaaaeeeehhhh… swing… crash… push… beeep! We struggle to put sonic interactions into words — and that is why an exhibition with real examples of sonic interaction design is the best way to experience this new field of research. It allows you to get your hands — and ears — on interactive works that showcase how sound can facilitate interaction in product design, mobile media, communicating scientific data, interactive art, and more.

Live Stage: Six Memos and Secret Courtyard at Venice Biennale [it Venice]

rpd1.jpgRoberto Paci Dalò & The Clocktower Gallery / ARTonAIR.org in New York collaborate during the opening week of the Biennale :: Six Memos, a sound-light installation :: and Secret Courtyard :: Aperitivo from 19:00 – 21:00 | Digestivo from 21:00 – Midnight :: Cortili musei civici Procuratie nuove, piazza San Marco 63, Venice, Italy ::

Six Memos is the site-specific sound-light installation created in the Procuratie nuove’s courtyards in piazza San Marco. The Williamsburg Bridge is the radio work by Roberto PaciDalò which provides the sound for the installation. The piece travels across the Hassidic communities around Brooklyn where the daily language – spoken at any age including kids – is Yiddish. Walking through Lee Avenue or Bedford Avenue is a unique perceptional experience. The Williamsburg Bridge connects Williamsburg to the Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Within one single train station it is possible to travel in time & space. Continue reading

Location-Aware App for music in the downtown D.C. Mall

gps.jpgWashington, D.C.-based band Bluebrain’s new album dropped yesterday, Friday, May 29, 2011, but not in the way one might think. It is available on iTunes, but not in MP3 form — rather as a location-aware app that only works within the stretch of park in downtown D.C. called the Mall.

“The music changes and evolves based on your chosen path within the park,” says Ryan Holladay, one half of the band. (His brother, Hays, makes up the other half of the outfit.) “To do this, the app uses the phone’s built-in GPS capabilities.” The app features a map of the Mall that shows what locations are tagged with sound.

The album, titled The National Mall, contains about three hours of music that the brothers composed while traipsing around the area. “It was certainly the most amount of exercise I’ve ever gotten while making an album,” Holladay says.

The disc will not be available for standard download as a musical piece, since it will only work when one is standing in the Mall.

Roberto Pugliese: Digital Bio-Acoustics

audiovideo_claudiomusso031.jpgRoberto Pugliese: Digital Bio-Acoustics:: An Interview for Digimag :: … Pugliese put his expertise at the disposal of artists and while doing so he managed to develop his own personal poetic experience. Sound is the protagonist of his installations and the construction of a visual universe — he is actively involved in the creation of real environments. Nature is a model both for the sound industry and for visual production. The devices for sound reproduction are arranged in space according to phytomorphic lines, the cables inhabit the walls like climbing plants and the speakers are like flowers blooming. Music composition is then engaged in synthetic circuits, relying on computational logics which manage frequencies, inputs and tracks. Sometimes the presence of nature is represented through ready-made elements, other times it is suggested or evoked by the diffusion of sound.

Live Stage: Music and Modernism [us New York, NY]

luke_dubois205.jpgBright Field: Music and Modernism :: with R. Luke DuBois :: Tuesday, May 24, 2011 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. :: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue (at 89th Street), New York City :: $15, $10 members, $5 students ::

During the decade leading up to the first World War, composers such as Debussy, Schoenberg, Scriabin, and Stravinsky were writing music in active dialogue with the social upheavals, intellectual currents, and political events of their day, embracing the same radical spirit that inspired their colleagues in the visual arts. This gallery program highlights selections of music from 1910–18 performed by Typical Music, an ensemble comprised of New York New Music virtuosi Todd Reynolds (violin), Ashley Bathgate (cello) and Vicky Chow (piano). A talk by American composer R. Luke DuBois precedes the concert.

“Soundw(e)ave” by Christy Matson

soundweave_installation1.jpgFrom The New Materiality by Nathaniel Stern, Furtherfield.org; a review of the exhibition The New Materiality: Digital Dialogues at the Boundaries of Contemporary Craft:

Soundw(e)ave, (Christy Matson’s) piece on show, is a self-referential textile, where the actual sounds of computerized Jacquard looms were used to create woven compositions. Her noisy sound waves were turned into three patterned pieces of fabric, made by hand-operated, computer-assisted and fully automated (Jacquard) looms, respectively – each weave growing progressively denser with the more advanced technologies used in their production. The piece, says Matson, was a huge turning point in her practice; it pointed her towards a kind of digital craftsmanship, where she was better able to place value on the ideas, materials and skillfulness needed to be an artisan across contemporary digital, craft and art domains.
