Live Stage: Resonance – “Sound” [hk Hong Kong]

installationview1.jpgResonance — Exhibition/ Performance/Talks with Samson Young and Yao Chung-Han :: July 16 – September 5, 2010 :: :: Opening Reception: July 16; 7:00 – 9:00 pm (performance by Yao Chung-Han (IO Lab, Taiwan) :: I/O Gallery, U/G, Tung Yiu Commercial Building, 31A Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.

Resonance an exhibition about the word sound. It is about the sound of the word, the meaning of the word, and the usage of the word; that is to say, it asks what sound is, how sound is used, and what sound can do. One may wonder why an artist would choose to work with sound, as opposed to music or visual art, but would find that answers are rarely forthcoming.

Resonance attempts to present an abstracted territory for this dialogue, stripping sound down to its most basic elements; the same elements that contribute to the other creative modes and methods in question. Continue reading

High Spheres is a participative multi-channel concert for found objects and reactive generative music by Edinburgh-based new media artist Marco Donnarumma. The action takes place open air. No musical instruments are provided, but stones and leaves. Audience can use six microphones and a 6.1 surround system to amplify any kind of sound they wish to produce. The whole sonic matter is managed by a Pure Data-based software for generative music developed by the author, which interacts with the audience processing sounds in real-time, analyzing the input signals and generating new sounds and textures out of the collected data.

Live Stage: Daniel Teige and Volkmar Klein [us Troy, NY]

600×350_03.jpgDaniel Teige & Volkmar Klien at EMPAC / Rensselaer, Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, Troy, NY :: October 16 & 17, 2009; 8:00 pm.

Taking advantage of the cycloramic potential of EMPAC’s Studio 1, German composers and sound artists Daniel Teige and Volkmar Klien will present works created or adapted for a 360° aural environment. Daniel Teige’s quirky sound collages combine ambient sound with spare, elegant musical progressions, for an effect that is at once classically restrained and whimsical. Volkmar Klien will be remixing his recent composition Start-Ziel-Siege, in which washes of feedback float over computer-generated percussion, for the dozens of speakers in Studio 1. The result of their Multichannel Residencies is music of absorbing — even entrancing — complexity that surrounds and immerses the listener.
