Bluetooth Beats is a physical turntable emulator. With a DJ Hero controller, a Wiimote, OSCulator, and PureData, Bluetooth Beats gives anyone the ability to manipulate and scratch songs like a DJ without the need for expensive, professional equipment.

The purpose of the official DJ Hero game is to reproduce the experience of being an actual DJ. For example, in the game, when a user places their finger on the 'vinyl' and pulls in a certain direction it makes a scratch sound. These actions take place in a controlled environment, with set songs and scratch points, where a user follows prompts provided by the game - scoring points for reproducing the sounds in the game.

This project will examine where the production of contemporary electronic music engages with
informal economies and transnational distribution networks, with a specific focus on the Mexican
cumbia sonidera scene along the East Coast such as Passaic, NJ. Although thriving, with dozens of parties each month in the NYC area alone, this scene has been ignored by both English- and Spanish-language media. Its locally-produced music enters, almost immediately, into highly fluid global routes of circulation. At parties, for instance, crowds give the DJ handwritten notes and text messages to be read on top of the music; these contain shout-outs to distant family, friends, and lovers. Afterward, the DJs sell live recordings of the night, which attendees then purchase and mail across the border (or hold onto as personal souvenirs).

I'm particularly interested in how these practices touch on aspects of memory and tangibility in the

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.
