Tintinnabulate is an ensemble of improvisational players whose voices and senses are tuned through the practice of Deep Listening. We achieve harmony through intuition, play, and sympathetic resonance. Founded by Pauline Oliveros, and based at RPI's iEAR (Integrated Electronic Arts) program in Troy, NY, Tintinnabulate has initiated a series of Distance Performances: live, co-located, Internet performances with improvisational ensembles across the United States.
Meme Improvisation Group (MIG):
Joseph Butch Rovan
MIG is an ensemble focused on technologically mediated improvisation that draws from the Free Jazz and Experimental Music Tradition. Members include both Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design students. MIG is an outgrowth of MEME, the multimedia and electronic music composition program at Brown University.
Tintinnabulate and MIG first performed together in the Fall of 2005. The ensembles performed over the Internet, each from their respective location. This performance at Eyebeam, hosted by The Upgrade, brings the two ensembles together into the same physical space for the first time.
The Upgrade! is a monthly meeting for professionals in the field, providing an open forum for the artists, designers, critics, curators, and educators that form New York's digital arts community. Eyebeam sponsors their activities, which include lectures and group discussions. New media artist Yael Kanarek initiated The Upgrade in April 1999 and currently coordinates the program in conjunction with Eyebeam. The monthly gatherings include artist presentations, lectures and group discussion.
