Krewe Coumbite & Muthi Reed

The work focuses specifically on vernacular of cultural musings expressed in: noise, chants, stories, lullabies, narratives around naming, Cultural sayings/proverbs/recipes, and in working-class rituals such as public transit, migration, service work, and in community gatherings.

Transitio_MX 03 Competition [mx Coyoacán]

transitio.jpgTransitio_MX 03: International Media Art and Video Festival :: Centro Nacional de las Artes, Centro Multimedia, Avenida Río Churubusco 79, Colonia Country Club, C. P. 04220, Coyoacán, México, D. F. :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: June 19, 2009.

“The third edition of the Electronic Art and Video Festival, Transitio_MX 03 attempts to acknowledge differences in a transparent and straightforward context. We aim to offer an event that is representative of current trends in new media art and video, and to show how artists use that technology in their creative pursuits.

While global space eliminates the geographical locations wherein these proposals take place by homogenizing them; technological appropriation is seen as a disagreement, and as such, artistic practices emerge as autonomous. Continue reading

hername02.jpgDiapason gallery for sound and intermedia presents Alessandro Bosetti and Christian Kesten’s Mask/Mirror, a performance :: March 29, 2008; 8:00 pm :: Diapason, 882 Third Avenue (between 32nd and 33rd Street), 10th floor, Brooklyn, NY.

A few months ago I wrote a note to myself: “Try to create a mask that that doesn’t have anything to do with anything” and kept wondering what that could mean until I started to imagine Mask/Mirror. Mask/Mirror a sampler to process recordings of spoken language in real time… The sampler follows both sound and meaning criteria in sorting, organizing and processing samples and in formulating utterances.

Music plays a pivotal role in many people’s lives as part of everyday popular culture because it is so unmediated. At times as a real world, at others as a reflecting surface for one’s own and others’ projections, music provides scope for manifold liberating, activist or subversive strategies at a far remove from consumption or glamour.

Compass + Floating Fabulousness …

compass.jpgSocial Mobile Music Navigation Using The Compass by Atau Tanaka, Guillaume Valadon, and Christophe Berger – ABSTRACT: During a regular day while on the move, most people interact with multiple portable devices: a personal music player, mobile phone, and digital camera. People driving cars in addition may also use navigation systems. Whereas each of these devices are getting more and more sophisticated, and packed with numerous functionalities, they are each optimized for specific usages. Modern mobile phones for example, claim to function as digital cameras and music players, but these are features that are more often than not added on almost as an afterthought, and are not integrated with the connectivity that the mobile phone represents. From an engineering point of view, the goal of this project is to push mass-market mobile phones to their limits in networked musical exchange by implementing The Compass. Specifically, we are targeting phones embedded with WiFi, music player and location1 capabilities. The idea was to build a true convergence application that integrated localization, mobile networking, and music listening. Mobile Music Workshop Proceedings, page 34 [PDF] Continue reading

Echo Ricochet + Scanner

echo_richochet.gifCre8ive Challenge is an Awesome Arts initiative designed to engage young people in an open-ended, process-based exploration of identity. In 2003 their project included the collection of significant sound samples for a collaborative project with Scanner. The latter became a soundscape accompaniment for a journey through Perth’s urban environment.

As part of the Festival in central Perth Echoricochet was presented from an orange transit van. The public borrowed headphones and CD players and embarked on a sound-walk through the city, guided by instructions. Perth ebbed and flowed with its usual rhythms as the soundscape evolved around the listener, offering a relaxed yet heightened awareness of the urban environment’s passing details.
