Turbulence Commission: “WoodEar” by Peter Traub

Turbulence Commission: WoodEar by Peter Traub [Needs download, and Speakers/Headphones]:

Bringing the body of the tree to the network is a natural fit — a tree is a network too: roots sensing and absorbing nutrients, leaves sensing and photosynthesizing sunlight, and phloem and xylem running throughout to carry nutrients across the structure. WoodEar attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of this biological network with the digital network. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data is merged with photos and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings into a generative application/installation. By downloading and running the application, anyone can access the live environmental experiences of the tree — one that may be very distant from them, but that still shares the same air, sun, earth, and sky.

Live Stage: SleepWalks Performance (Sleepover) [us NYC]

sleepwalk.jpgSleepWalks Performance (Sleepover, please bring bedding) :: June 5, 9:00 pm – June 6, 9:00 am :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Fl., New York City :: RSVP: lemurz66 [at]

An overnight, live electronic music performance by Lee Pembleton and Andrea Williams. Culling sounds from their audio files of field recordings, live samples of the room resonance, and various electronically processed acoustic instruments, they create an extended musical composition for the entirety of a night for an audience that sleeps in the performance space. Pembleton and Williams intend to create soundwalks for dreamers. SleepWalks first premiered as a shorter ‘catnap’ at Issue Project Room in NYC in early 2009 and since then as dream-filled overnight performances in the San Francisco Bay Area, including at Mills College as part of The Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival. A listening sample can be found here (link on right side of page). Continue reading

For her performance on WKCR, Parkins will be playing amplified objects, electronic accordion, and laptop electronics/live processing.

Parkins’ work has been presented in New York at the Whitney Museum of American Art (“Bitstreams” exhibition), The Kitchen (“New Sound/New York”), Diapason, Roulette and Experimental Intermedia; and at contemporary music, sound, and intermedia festivals/venues throughout the US and Europe, and in Latin America and Asia.
