passing, those who have passed, they have turned back,
they have turned around, they have this harmony, this one time,
these many times, they have, for those who have passed and
this one time, they have turned

passage, for neither a break nor a moment's rest have they,
they have continued, they have thought until their bones were
broken, until their minds among them, disappearing, no longer
this one melody, breathless, this one time, they have turned
and turned, the pipa rising among the buddhas, we have heard

 

what the oud was doing

http://www.alansondheim.org/kyber2.mp4

the oud was making sound behind the performance space
in front of the performance space behind the viewers
the magic of wires and speakers
the articulated magic of mixers and piezoelectrics
'i don't want to be known as a percussionist, but as an
oud player who utilizes percussion as if he's playing
pipa in the martial style,' 'then descending to mountains
and butterflies'
it's that same alien landscape spewing everywhere
it's that cold light, lcd/led, the light that kills things
nothing can grow in the magic alien cold-light killing field
the oud was saying that and the legs were dancing
the arms were dancing too

Last day today

http://www.alansondheim.org/breaktime.mp4
Today was the best day ever, incredible performances:
Chris Diasparra, baritone sax
Foofwa d'Imobilite, dance and choreography
Azure Carter, dance, choreography, and song
Mark Skwarek, augmented reality
Alan Sondheim, video, flute, ken bau, cura cumbus, oud

We went continuously for three hours, changing audio, video,
instrumentation, choreographies

Then we crashed and broke the mold, watching in Second Life
a recap of what we did, in a decathected setting
so many hours after we left the scene - both real and virtual
and somewhere in-between or outside any conceivable reality!

Albert Chao addresses the intersection of technology and architecture. With a foundation in physical computing, interaction design and parametric modeling, his work explores the mapping of ephemeral experiences through fabricated objects and speculative design proposals. Albert is a recent graduate of a Media, Architecture and Computing MArch + MFA dual degree program at the University at Buffalo.

The Spacepod is a chamber that projects auditory architecture around a listener.  Using an omnidirectional array of speakers, it produces a sensation of auditory surfaces using ambisonic localization, psychoacoustic cues, and parametric mapping. Effectively, one finds oneself navigating by ear a world in which every surface is covered in sound-emitting pores. The Spacepod functions as a sort of spacecraft that sends the listener flying through auditory spaces that would be impossible or prohibitive to construct physically, without any of the constraints of bodily mass.

The Spacepod was developed by staff technologist Jackson Moore in conjunction with the Eyebeam Sound Research Group.  It will be on display in the Eyebeam Main Space from January 12th - February 4th.
