Leonardo Electronic Almanac Rekindled

future1.jpgLeonardo Electronic Almanac has inherited a large archive of papers, articles and information. This material was held in the archive as historical documentation and as part of the revamp of LEA we have decided to revisit this history and compare it with contemporary developments.

LEA rekindled 1 is the first historical comparative issue of the Leonardo Electronic Almanac on the history and contemporary developments at the intersection of art, science and technology. For this first issue of LEA rekindled, our editorial intention is to re-open a dialogue with those who participated and contributed towards building the history of contemporary art interactions with science and technology as well as with the new generations of artists, critical commentators, scientists and technology experts.

The Anarchy of Silence – John Cage [no Høvikodden]

johncage.jpgThe Anarchy of Silence – John Cage :: until May 30, 2010 :: Henie Onstad Art Centre, 1311 Høvikodden, Norway.

John Cage (1912-1992) defined a radical practice of “experimental” composition that not only changed the course of modern music and dance but defined a new conceptual horizon for artistic practice in the late-20th century. Illuminating the relevance of Cage’s contribution to contemporary art, Henie Onstad Art Centre presents the most extensive exhibition to be devoted to the artist since his death, and the first to focus on the historicization of the composer’s oeuvre and its impact.

The Anarchy of Silence – John Cage tracks systematically the critical developments in Cage’s career: from his work with percussion (1930s), to the prepared piano (1940s), to chance and indeterminacy (1950s), to new media (1960s onward), through to the political focus that ever more explicitly informed the work in the last decades of his life. Cage ushered in formal, structural, temporal, and media innovations that now form cornerstones of contemporary consciousness. Continue reading

Sound – Art – History – Culture – Theory [dk Aarhus C]

call.jpgCall for papers for Sound as Art – Sound in History. Sound as Culture – Sound in Theory Conference :: organized by Ansa Lønstrup, Morten Michelsen and others :: September 23–25, 2010 :: University of Aarhus, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark :: Call for Papers — Deadline: April 1, 2010.

Today, sound studies provide an important framework for furthering cultural research related to a broad range of historical and contemporary issues. Also, sound studies contribute to the understanding of currents in social and global activity increasingly determined by auditory, sonic, and communicative materiality. At the same time, the exploration of auditivity and auditory cultures raises a series of significant aesthetic, medial, historical, cultural, and theoretical questions. Continue reading

Sync/Lost: Visualization of Music History

sync_lost.jpg Sync/Lost: an Immersive, Multi-User Visualization of Music History :: Sync/Lost [3bits.net] is a multi-user data visualization installation that allows users to become immersed in the history of electronic music. Starting from a complex timeline, user interactivity allows rhythms and sub-rhythms to merge into new sounds. The user interaction is accomplished with wiimote controls, wireless handheld pointers which are relatively easy to use and learn. The audible feedback is provided via wireless headphones.

The project’s objective is to create an interface where people can explore all the connections between the main styles of electronic music through both visual and audible feedback. The interaction with the resulting network graph leads to “a collective consequence in the spatial visualization of information”. [From infosthetics.com.

How to Wreck a Nice Beach: The Vocoder…

vocoder.jpgHow to Wreck a Nice Beach: The Vocoder from Stalin to Frampton to Bambaataa by Dave Tompkins:

This is the story of how a military device became the robot voice of hip-hop and pop music. Though the vocoder, invented by Bell Labs in 1928, was designed to guard phones from eavesdroppers, it expanded beyond its original purpose and has since become widely used as a voice-altering tool for musicians. It has served both the Pentagon and the roller rink, a double agent of pop and espionage.

In How to Wreck a Nice Beach — from a mis-hearing of the vocoder-rendered phrase “how to recognize speech” — music journalist Dave Tompkins traces the history of electronic voices from Nazi research labs to Stalin’s gulags, from the 1939 World’s Fair to Hiroshima, from Manhattan nightclubs to the Muppets. The result is an amazing chronicle of postwar music and culture, filled with unexpected and surprising encounters. Continue reading
