Choir to sing the ‘code of life’

dna_choir.jpgChoir to sing the ‘code of life’ by Pallab Ghosh, Science correspondent, BBC News [Computer generated image of DNA sequences (Science Photo Library) The similarity between written music and DNA sequences inspired the author]

Scientists and composers have produced a new choral work in which performers sing parts of their own genetic code.

Human DNA is made up of just four different chemical compounds, which gave musician Andrew Morley the idea of assigning a note to each of them.

The new piece, Allele, will be performed by the New London Chamber Choir at the Royal Society of Medicine on 13 July.

Each of the 40-strong choir has also had his or her own DNA decoded. More >>

BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body [ie Dublin]

bio.jpgCall for proposals: Calling all experimental musicians, musical neuroscientists, sound artists, cyborg performers, dance-floor divas and harmonic engineers :: Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is currently developing a major new exhibition and event and workshop series entitled BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body and we are seeking your proposals for gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances for inclusion. We will consider both proposals for projects within the Science Gallery building and off-site or roaming projects. Some funding is available to support projects, but projects which can bring other sources of support are welcomed.

How does the body respond to music? Is there a neuroscience of dance? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Why does a minor cord sound sad? How does a DJ manipulate the emotions of a crowd? Continue reading

Live Stage: Sewing Sonifications [us Seattle, WA]

bodle.jpgCarrie Bodle: Sewing Sonifications Performance :: October 10, 2009; 2:00 – 6:00 pm :: Westlake Park, Seattle, WA.

Visual and sound artist Carrie Bodle will create a five-channel sound installation and sewing performance sonifying data from an ecosystem model developed by UW oceanographic scientist Dr. Neil Banas. Sound is translated from data, then visualized and made tactile by the artist embroidering the combined waveform into a continuous sound wave.

This computer model simulates the growth and consumption of plankton in the ocean ecosystem along the Washington coast during summer 2005. The five sound channels broadcast five dimensions in this data: Continue reading

Ocean Voices: Share your voice

ocean.jpgWhat is Ocean Voices? Sound artist Halsey Burgund and marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols joined forces to collect the voices of people around the world recounting their personal experiences with the ocean. Combined with music written by Halsey, these voices will soon become audio collages which listeners can create to suit their own preferences. Help them by sharing your voice and spreading the words of all participants around the globe.

The ocean surrounds us and sustains us. We can only preserve life in the ocean by working together as a global community. Ocean Voices brings together voices from around the world for everyone to hear. Open your mouth; open your ears; join the Ocean Revolution here. Record your voice. Become a part of Ocean Voices.

Peninsulae of Perception [de Göttelborn]

intakt09_poster.jpgInternational Interaktionslabor 2009: Peninsulae of Perception :: July 20 – August 2, 2009 :: Site of the former coal mine Göttelborn in southwest Germany.

This year the main focus of the workshop is on perceptual processes. The project title — Halbinseln der Wahrnehmung/ Peninsulae of Perception — is a reference to a diary written by a person afflicted with Asperger’s Syndrome. The diary has been proposed as research libretto for investigations into differing perceptual channels and psycho-social research on autism, synaesthesia, music composition and real-time performance. The acoustic-musical dimension of the 2009 laboratory is complemented by research into design or wearable audiophonics and acousmatic architectures and sound perceptions. Continue reading
