Next Wednesday, August 3rd, I will be a part of a panel launching the new Grey Area Foundation for the Arts/Eyebeam Sound Research Meetup. We’ll be discussing a range of advanced audio projects in spatialization and multichannel presentations from perspectives of both composition and technical logistics. I’ll be talking about the Recombinant Media Labs’ Cinechamber, the Laoban Soundsystem, Virtual Reality systems, and interactive installations; it should be a vibrant discussion.

 

Join GAFFTA and Eyebeam in San Fransisco for a Sound Research Group meeting on August 3rd, 6–8PM. Thinkers and makers will be brought together in dialogue with the goal of stimulating new points of overlap and conversation around issues of both production and aesthetics.  Discussion will be centered around projects/initiatives that have grown out of the New York City group, new work by Bay Area artists, as well as a discussion led by Marc Weidenbaum, founder of disquiet.com, around sound-art remix projects he has curated and their intersection with #netlabel culture. 

This is a great opportunity to join the conversation and participate in an ongoing collaboration on developing dialogue around sound art on both the west and east coast.

Why does a minor chord sound sad? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Whistling, dancing, finger-snapping, and toe-tapping—what makes us do it? Find out when music and science join forces in an interactive bazaar of beats, sounds, and rhythm in the exhibition BIORHYTHM, created by the Science Gallery and presented at Eyebeam as part of the World Science Festival. Learn what drives sound manipulation and discover how different types of music evoke different emotions. Trace the power of an impactful pop hook in a song, measuring the way our brains and bodies react, down to the responses in our fingertips.

"Once you get into the flow of things, 
you're always haunted by the way that things could have turned out. 
This outcome, that conclusion. You get my drift. 
The uncertainty is what holds the story together, 
and that's what I'm going to talk about."

Open Air Radiotopia is a documentary CD resulting from an open call for sounds, poems, scores, etc. The aim was to help create the unique sound-image of Radiotopia-radio as a worldwide medium for communication/exchange/dialogue supporting and amplifying the often-unheard multiplicity of voices-proposing  a strong language or vocal element in the contributions. This diverse and regional vocabulary might also include the "voices" of specific landscapes, cityscapes, musical instruments and ecosystems around the world.

Eyebeam Fellow Kaho Abe worked with Australian students from the Christ Church Grammar School teaching them about potato voltage, electrical currents, and how to boost either of these to create tone generators. They also used transistors, dials, and photo resistors to create other tone generators for a unique orchestral experience.  At the end of the workshop, students participated in a Potato Orchestra using the devices that they created.

Pauline Oliveros is one of America's most vital composers. Deep Listening, her lifetime practice, is fundamental to her composing, performing and teaching. During the 1960s John Rockwell named her work as one of the most significant of that decade. In the 70's she represented the U.S. at the World's Fair in Osaka, Japan; during the 80s she was honored with a retrospective at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC; the 1990's began with a letter of distinction from the American Music Center presented at Lincoln Center in New York; and in 2000, the 50th anniversary of her work was celebrated with the commissioning and performance of her Lunar Opera: Deep Listening For_tunes. She serves as Distinguished Research Professor of Music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY; Darius Milhaud Artist-in-residence at Mills College, Oakland, CA; and president of Deep Listening Institute in Kingston NY.
