Live Stage: Radio Wonderland [us NYC]

radio1.jpgLe Petit Versailles presents MUSIC For (F)ALL SEASONS with Joshua Fried and The New York Oratorio with Richard Kostelanetz :: September 27, 2008; 3 – 11 pm :: Le Petit Versailles Garden, 346 East Houston Street, NYC.

RADIO WONDERLAND is Joshua Fried, performing solo live sound processing controlled by old shoes (he drums) or with sticks and a steering wheel (He’s a, er, wheel player). RADIO WONDERLAND turns live commercial FM radio into recombinant funk. All the sounds originate from an old boombox, playing radio LIVE. Nothing is pre-recorded; anything picked up during the performance is fair game until the end. All the processing is live custom DSP programmed by Joshua in the MaxMSP programming environment. But he hardly touches the laptop. Continue reading

David Morneau’s music podcasts to conclude

david_morneau.jpgDavid Morneau will bring his composition-a-day project, 60×365, to an end on June 30th. You can hear the conclusion by visiting http://60×

Every day for the past year, Morneau has composed and posted a new sixty-second composition. That’s just over six hours of new music in sixty-second installments. For this project, Morneau explored a wide variety of musical styles and techniques, including musique concrète, sine wave synthesis, digital sampling, 8-bit constructions, process music, acousmatic composition, and post-techno beat manipulations. He found the requirement to make a new, complete piece every day an exhilarating challenge, and reveled in the constant variety of ideas the project embraced. This project began as a challenge to compose more, and ended up as an audio diary of the past year. Continue reading

Reblogged The Legendary 6 hour Breakout Hackathon


lesley_flanigan_blueicmc.jpgBioluminescence is a collaborative audio/visual project with Lesley Flanigan and Luke DuBois.

The voice has a unique role in our musical culture, bridging the linguistic and the semiotic in a way that transcends instrumentality through a highly personal embodiment of musicianship. The recorded female voice, in particular, has been the subject of academic investigation following its role in aesthetics (Adorno), cinema and psychology (Silverman) and feminist theory (De Laurentis). In electroacoustic music, the voice has a privileged place in our canon, providing a boundless source of material for sonic exploration from the tape works of Berio, Dodge, and Lansky through the composer-performer repertoire of Joan LaBarbera and Pamela Z.
