Am working with dancers in various responsive media environments. My interest/work here is to capture qualities of their movement using statistical signal processing techniques and map this into interesting and immersive sound worlds. In conjunction with the Topological Media Lab @ Concordia.

Oliveros/Van Nort/Braasch/Tintinnabulate/SoundWire @ ICAD, June 26 @ 6pm :: Improvisation with Pauline Oliveros (accordion), Jonas Braasch (soprano sax) and the Tintinnabulate (varying numbers and musicians) and SoundWire (Juan Pablo Caceres and Chris Chafe) ensembles who will play remotely from RPI, Stanford and Korea. I’ll be processing their many streams separately and using this as my material for performance (i.e. I’ll be playing “electronics” or “laptop”). Also the sounds will be spatialized and the remote sound will simultaneously be presented binaurally (binaurally mic-ed on the remote side) over a bunch of headphones. Should be fun!

I am also presenting a piece for headphones @ ICAD 2007.

June 2007

My new piece/ensemble Deep Listening Convergence Genetic Orchestra (DLC-GO!) performed at the LifeBridge Sanctuary in High Falls, NY on June 10, 2007. 11 laptops weaving sounds from a pool of co-created genetic material. Performers/Sound Breeders were Tom Bickley, Monique Buzzarte, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Al Margolis, Kim McCarthy, Kristin Norderval, Pauline Oliveros, Zevin Polzin, Roberto Rodriguez, Doug Van Nort and Katharina von Rutte. The sound was fantastic, and the entire event got great press including here and in the Wire Magazine.

This is ancient history by now, I suppose…
