The Week in Review (2010) by Resident Andrew Demirjian maps the stock price fluctuations of the three largest companies in the music industry to musical notes and visuals. The piece highlights the role of the global marketplace in music by reversing the traditional industry relationship that turns speculations on music into money; instead it turns speculations on money into music. The Week in Review is an interactive audiovisual projection that participants can play through a turntable and LED clock interface. When the piece is not being played there is a program mode that creates patterns from the week of data.
Join artist Andrew Demirjian for a workshop where participants will design their own distinctive tones for sonifying the stock price fluctuations of the three largest music companies. Participants will audition and perform each other's work working from Andrew's audiovisual installation, The Week in Review, presented in Eyebeam's Project Space (June 21-July 9). The control interface for Week in Review is a custom built LED clock interface and turntable, which enables a user play through a week of stock price data. This is a workshop for Max/MSP and/or Ableton Live users.
