They play strictly notated machine deconstructions of popular tunes, filtered through the brain of a computer. You'll hear James Brown backed by a simmering Sun Ra Arkestra, Madonna with a jittery freak-out synth rhythm section, and Herb Alpert with a Tijuana Brass that must have been led by Charles Ives. Join us for the madness!<br /> <br /> <br /> Their debut album ORGANVM PERCEPTVM, five years in the making, will be out on Santa Cruz label Indexical in 2016.

This talk argues for increased attention to the possibilities for this mode of computer music on the part of both creative artists and institutions that support advanced aesthetic research. We first consider the large role that timbre composition has played in computer music, and posit that this research direction may be showing signs of diminishing returns. We next propose spatial computer music for large numbers of speakers as a relatively unexplored area with significant potential, considering reasons for the relative preponderance of timbre composition over spatial composition.</p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/eric-lyon-music-composition-hdlas-high-density-loudspeaker-arrays" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 14 May 2016 03:32:52 +0000 kermit 4240 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu hk&tcs https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hktcs-0 <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Sun, 05/15/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">8:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">9:00pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> CCRMA Stage </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Concert </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/12046609_609942499563_1738142641143048786_n-2.jpg?1461788775" /> </div> </div> </div> Weston Olencki, Helen Newby and Bethanne Walker perform premieres by Dan Tramte and Santiago Diez-Fischer as well as music by Matthias Kranebitter and Chris Swithinbank, with a new arrangement of Michelle Lou&rsquo;s untitled three part construction for trombone + two performers + objects.<br /> <br /> Program: <br /> Dan Tramte - #hijackthishashtag [2016] solo untrained voice, objects, edibles, melodica, hacked DJ-hero controller, and live video *world premiere<br /> <br /> Santiago Diez-Fischer - sensitive switch [2016] for trombone, cello, and electronics *world premiere<br /> <br /> Matthias Kranebitter - packtheboxwithsixdozenofmyliquorjugs [2013] for flute, trombone, and piano <br /> <br /> Chris Swithinbank - local bond [2015] for viola, cello, and four performers<div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hktcs-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hktcs-0#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4229 Wed, 27 Apr 2016 20:26:56 +0000 ecallery 4229 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu
