Partnering with this year’s LiSA conference (Leaders in Software and Art), we will offer this workshop that focuses on Max/MSP Jitter’s OpenGL framework to create compelling interactive visuals in 3D. We will also be using Blender (a free and open source 3D modeling software) to create our own basic models to import and work with in Jitter. Participants will leave the 8 hour workshop with a trove of reusable code and resources to begin writing their own 3D Video software or Interactive Visual Environments.

Rachel Mason and Michael Durek aka The Use present a special 5.1 surround sound arrangement of their work together. Amar Chaudhary’s piece is an exploration of sound, space and identity. It is held together by the abstract electronic sounds of an analog modular synthesizer, with various percussion and Asian folk instruments coming in and out.

Vox Novus and Harvestworks are inviting composers and sound artists to submit recorded works as 5.1 audio 60 seconds or less in length to be included in a special 60×60 project collaboration in New York City.
60×60 is calling for works one-minute in length for 5.1 audio playback. Deadline: December 1
60×60 is a one-hour-long show made by sequencing 60 pre-recorded pieces by 60 different composers, each piece a minute in length or shorter. This 60×60 call for works is a unique collaboration with Harvestworks in New York City to create a 5.1 surround sound mix which will be premiered at Harvestworks multichannel TEAMLab listening room in Spring 2014.
In this event at Church For All Nations, Phillip Stearns was exploring the physiological dimensions of electronic media reduced to their elementary components: light and sound. This event was part of 2013 New York Electronic Art Festival, in partnership with Church For All Nations and Hells Kitchen Cultural Center / Rhythm In The Kitchen Festival.

Phillip Stearns: Imminent Shift
Imminent Shift is a performance exploring the physiological dimensions of electronic media reduced to their elementary components: light and sound. An instrument fashioned from analog mixing boards and custom hybrid digital electronics will activate the performance space both sonically and visually. Electronic signals originating from the interaction between fixed oscillations and dynamic feedback loops will form the basis all for sonic and visual material as control signals for speakers and fluorescent lights. The performance takes as its subject the technological conditions which make it possible. This circularity places the medium itself, the instrument, the performer, and the space as the content. Immediacy of experience is favored over the construction of mediated illusion.
Free play meets social engineering? ‘Glorious noise’? Anti-structures? Willful complexity? An orchestrated, real-time, interactive collision between the cyborgism of guitarist Han-earl Park, and the incomparably original melodic and timbral sensibilities of saxophonist Catherine Sikora and saxophonist-clarinetist Josh Sinton. The trio will render into music, Metis 9, a collection of improvisative tactics, and higher-level interactive macros for group improvisation.

Jeff Noble joins Blatant Lies (Adam Rokhsar and Hans Tammen) bringing edgy motion sensing of audio and 3D video to their visceral blast of modular synths and smartphone samples. Blatant Lies is a battle of analog and digital sounds as Hans Tammen and Adam Rokhsar use modular synths and the sensors hidden in smart phones to make a new form of rhythmic contortion. As a trio, the group performs an aggressive burst of splintered AV chaos.

Anthony Marasca, composer and winner of the 2013 UnCaged Toy Piano Festival will be performing a series of new and improvised pieces with guitarist Michael Greinke. Drawing from unique sound sources such as homemade acoustic instruments, simple circuit-synthesizers and radical guitar preparations, the duo focuses on a communal approach to building sonic landscapes. Come see the man of the hour perform some of his own homemade electronics!
