Live Stage: Zimoun “Volume” [us NYC]

zimoun_2011_121_motors_cardboard_e_1.jpgZimoun “Volume” :: February 2 – March 10, 2012 :: Opening: February 2; 6:00 – 8:30 pm :: bitforms gallery nyc, 529 W. 20th Street, New York, New York City.

bitforms gallery is pleased to announce Volume, the first solo exhibition in New York by Swiss artist Zimoun. On view will be an immersive, site-specific sound installation based on prepared dcmotors and cardboard boxes.

Part of a series that received its U.S. debut in a solo exhibition at the Ringling Museum of Art this Fall, the installation emphasizes the grid as a method of visual organization. Precariously balanced rows of cardboard boxes form an architectural space containing a rumbling din produced by mechanical motors humming in unison. Continue reading

Reblogged A Piano Listening To Itself, inducing Chopin in chords

chopin-chord-5med.jpg“Moving across two and a half decades from the windy north Atlantic coast of Canada to the center of Warsaw, the large-scale Aeolian instruments of Gordon Monahan form a temporal bridge between the Fluxus-propelled experimental music of the sixties and seventies and contemporary sound art production. Taking the former’s deconstruction of musical heritage and combining it with an approach closely related to land art, in 1984 Gordon Monahan made his first long string installation in the snow covered plains of New Brunswick. His Long Aeolian Piano had wires 20 to 50 meters long attached to its sounding board. The wires were strung across a field so that, when exited by the wind, they produced Aeolian tones that would travel across the landscape, placing a spell on the quiet Canadian countryside. In 2010 Gordon Monahan produced a new work for the old city center of Warsaw, A Piano Listening To Itself – Chopin Chord. Continue reading

Talman on Nature of the Night Sky

one-star.jpg“There’s a free concert taking place at a forest in Germany, and the headline acts have come from far, far away. NPR guest host Jacki Lyden talks to New York-based artist Jeff Talman about his German sound installation, Nature of the Night Sky. Working with astrophysicist Daniel Huber, Talman used radiation and seismic data from stars and shaped it into music, played back after sundown each night in a Bavarian forest.” (National Public Radio)

The sounds come from the star Procyon in Canis Minor. With the help of astrohysicist Daniel Huber, Talman has transposed the sounds so that we can hear them. The program is available on National Public Radio: hear Talman talk about his Bavarian forest sound installation, and listen to the sounds: here.

You can learn more at Talman’s website.

Live Stage: Jeff Tallman [de Waldmunchen]

talman.jpgJeff Tallman‘s fourth Bavarian Forest installation, Nature of the Night Sky:: May 7, 2011 – September 18, 2011 :: Opening: May 7, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. :: at the Berghof Gibacht, Bavarian Forest outside of the city of Waldmünchen near the Czech border ::

The installation features the resonance of numerous stars as provided by collaborator astrophysicist Daniel Huber of the Sydney Institute for Astronomy (Australia), as its sole sound source. The fifty minute, mutli-channel sound program will play through once every evening just after sundown in a clearing in the forest that provides ample view of the night sky. A star chart is provided to identify some of the stars whose sounds are used in the installation.

Stars create thousands of roaring resonant sounds that cannot penetrate the vacuum of space. But stellar seismology, the study of the oscillations of star masses, makes possible the scientific reproduction of their sound. Continue reading

UrbanRemix: Call for Participation [us NYC]

UrbanRemix is a collaborative and locative sound project developed by Jason Freeman, Carl DiSalvo, Michael Nitsche, and many of our students at Georgia Tech. Our goal in developing UrbanRemix was to design a platform and series of events that would enable participants to develop and express the acoustic identity of their communities, and enable participants to explore and experience the soundscapes of the city in a novel fashion.

The UrbanRemix platform consists of a mobile phone system and web interface for recording, browsing, and mixing audio. It allows users to document and explore the obvious, neglected, private or public, even secret sounds of the urban environment. Continue reading

The curators are seeking works that address the notion of “Levels | Hierarchies”, as in chains of command, levels of play, stages of life, degrees of comfort... Pace Digital Gallery is, itself, distributed across three floors of a building; within a broad stairwell to be precise. Practitioners are required to address the theme according to both the physical space and the distributed space of the Internet, where the works will permanently reside.

Net_Music_Weekly: “Sun Boxes” by Craig Colorusso

sunboxes.jpgSun Boxes in Rhyolite Nevada. A twenty speaker piece powered by the sun by Craig Colorusso.

Sun Boxes are an environment to enter and exit. It’s comprised of twenty speakers operating independently each powered by solar panels. There is a different guitar sample in each box all playing together making the composition. The guitar samples are all of different lengths so the whole piece keeps evolving.

Participants are encouraged to walk amongst the speakers. It sounds different inside of the array. There is a different sense of space inside. Certain speakers will be closer and louder therefore the piece will sound different to different people in different positions throughout the array. Creating a unique experience for everyone.

Live Stage: Stephen Vitiello – A Bell for Every Minute [us NYC]

stephenvitiello.jpgStephen Vitiello’s new multi-channel sound installation A Bell For Every Minute :: Beginning on June 23, 2010 :: High Line, 13th – 14th Street, NYC.

A Bell for Every Minute will fill the 14th Street Passage, a semi-enclosed tunnel between West 13th and West 14th Streets, with sound recordings of bells taken from all over New York City and beyond. Sounds range from the iconic rings of the New York Stock Exchange bell, the historic Dreamland bell days after it was discovered in the water off Coney Island, the United Nation’s Peace Bell, and more everyday and personal sounds of bike bells, diner bells, and neighborhood church bells. Bells are used in our culture to mark the passing of time, act as warnings and alerts, mark celebrations, and memorialize those lost. While there are numerous conditions under which bells are heard in our city, they are universal sounds that all of us can appreciate as part of the auditory landscape of our lives. Continue reading
