Create your own instruments and sounds with basic electronics.  Then perform live! The ten members of Theremidi Orchestra (TO)  will guide and assist participants during a five-day, hands-on and theoretical workshop.  Participants will assemble two electronic sound devices and learn how to play them in noisy group improvisations.

The workshop will also provide a framework for aesthetic discussion, from how to improvise and work in a group and understanding the sound ranges of the instruments, to implications of collective feedback loops and concepts of social amplification.  Then work collaboratively to develop the live performance. Daniel Neumann, curator of CT-SWaM, will assist in developing ideas for spatialization of the multi-channel performance.

In this week-long multi-session workshop, sound artists and composers will develop individual (or collaborative) spatial sound compositions. Participants will perform their works in a public performance for the ongoing event series CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary - Sound Works and Music) at Eyebeam.

For most artists who are working with sound, it is still very challenging to gain access to a proper space and a larger number of powerful and balanced loudspeakers in order to properly experiment and to develop ideas. The Spatial Sound Composition workshop will therefore provide the technical infrastructure and also an environment for discussion, contextual placements and an insight into the theory and history of this specific field.

Quotidian Record

Quotidian Record is a limited edition LP that features a continuous year of personal location-tracking data recorded by Brian House. In compressing 365 days to 365 rotations and mapping habitual places to harmonic relationships, he hopes to prompt our musical perception when we consider our daily travels.

On April 21st, Eyebeam's main exhibition space will be transformed into a small village dedicated to creative sound research. Using resources as diverse as atmospheric sensors, ping-pong balls, string instruments, reverberant plates, magnetized wires, cell phones, data hubs, and laughter, participants from Eyebeam's sound research group will convene to run experiments, share original research, develop work in progress, and explore collaborative strategies.

Interaction, encounter, and juxtaposition will be emphasized over sound isolation—the idea being that sound is transparent enough to permit a human ecology that transcends the singular focus of the concert format.

From 3PM-7PM the public will be invited to witness the results. The day will culminate in a public discussion at 7PM.

 
People: Alan Sondheim, Azure Carter, Ben Houge, Bernhard Garnicnig, Brian House, Chris Diasparra, Christine Sun-Kim, David Reeder, Jackson Moore, Keiko Uenishi, Kyle Kessler, Mary Mattingly, Mike Clemow, Roddy Schrock, Seth Dellinger, Yo Park

Here is a link to the documentation of our Max/MSP Jitter Workshop in multi-channel audiovisuals.

The installation is by Crystal Butler, Todd Bryant, Kathleen Judge, Quin Kennedy, Sofia van Leeuwen, James Proctor, Yo Park, Matth Torti and Daniel Wilson.

The work is an algorithmically edited piece composed of sound and video captured from various New York City elevators. Eight channels of rhythmic audio play while four projectors cast synced video onto a 10 ft. high cube.

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.

Baroque.me visualizes the first Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suites. Using the mathematics behind string length and pitch, it came from a simple idea: what if all the notes were drawn as strings? Instead of a stream of classical notation on a page, this interactive project highlights the music’s underlying structure and subtle shifts.
