IDIOT at HERE Arts Center
Idiot is a hybrid work for 4 actors and media created in response to Dostoevsky's The Idiot - created by HERE Artistic Director Kristin Marting and writer Robert Lyons with designers video designer Ray Sun, environment designer Nick Benacerraf, costume designer Kate Fry, composer Larry Heinemann, and lighting designer Jeanette Yew. This wholly new work incorporates original text, live cinematography, surround projections, gestural choreography, and vivid sound. Our central character, Myshkin, is a “completely beautiful soul" whose brief glimpses of spiritual wonder suggest a transparent, guileless way to live in the world. Our immersive staging implicates the audience as part of a society more concerned with wealth and power than simple decency and spiritual epiphanies. IDIOT explores a profound ethical question: can a person live a compassionate life, without deceit, or will society’s corrupting forces, and our own darkest human impulses, destroy them?



Our work extracts four characters from the novel and re-imagines them for the stage, framing the story through the fractured consciousness of the innocent Myshkin, who unwittingly finds himself the lynchpin in a twisted love quartet that includes a notorious woman, a spoiled society girl, and a violent sociopath. Myshkin’s utter lack of guile and bedrock decency make him an outcast, an “other”, almost a freak to those surrounding him. He is also an epileptic, further distancing him in the eyes of the society at that time.

Rainbow Resonance
Tickets for the Staten Island Children's Museum cost $8 and must be purchased at the door.
Rainbow Resonance is a computer vision installation that generates colors and musical sounds of the equivalent sound frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, according to the motion of the participator. The audience is encouraged to participate in a playful performance that engages the body to produce colorful images and sound resonances through simple movements. Anyone can potentially create a personal experience within the installation. The color scheme is based on the visible light spectrum and is also inspired by the chakras.

Light wavelengths are transposed 40 octaves below, into audible sound frequencies and mapped to an 8 tone musical scale based on Pythagorean mathematics. The resulting eight-tone scale corresponds to the 'white keys' on the piano, and represents the seven predominant colors of the light spectrum.

An all encompassing composition of the frequencies occurs when the arms extend upwards towards the sky. The movement is reminiscent of the exercise 'Carrying the Moon' in Chi Kung, an ancient Chinese method of healing.

How Was Your Day
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-was-your-day-tickets-22631905639
How Was Your Day' is an experimental social network that enables you to communicate via color and light. Light patterns and color as forms communication has been explored throughout history. Examples include signal lamps, morse code, smoke signals and smartphone notifications. Can we develop our own ambient language using only patterns, light and color? Together in this workshop we are looking to push the these concepts further with our favorite modern-day web technologies.

We will be designing a peer-to-peer communication network using software and hardware tools including Raspberry Pi, MeteorJS, MQTT, LED Strips and breakout boards. In the first half of the workshop we will learn about basic setup, networking and communication with Raspberry Pi. In the second half we'll build out the hardware component of the project to display our network data via light.

Our breakout board kit is designed to be a simple way to connect LED strips to the RaspberryPi GPIO.

4 hour workshop includes:
Setting up the RPi Installing our social network templates. MeteorJS + MQTT
Hardware jam and LED programming

Requirements:
- Laptop with Text Editor and SSH Terminal
- Basic programming knowledge recommended. (JavaScript)

Why Why Always by Shaun Irons & Lauren Petty
It is seventeen minutes past midnight, Oceanic Time. You’re sitting in a theater of sorts – a show is about to begin – there is an occasional flicker of light – a sonic shudder - an atmosphere of electronic energy - you look down at the program in your hand, black letters spell the words Why Why Always...

In this sci-fi misadventure of secret agents and seductresses, where Godard's Alphaville meets ASMR - mesmeric whispers fill the air, lighters flash, linens are folded, and a super computer is foiled. Why Why Always conjures a live cine-performance through the interplay of otherworldly video, music, sound and technology.

Created and Conceived by Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty
Performers (live): Jim Fletcher, Saori Tsukada, Laura Bartczak, Marion Spencer
Performers (video): Scott Shepherd, Madeline Best

Max for Live Workshop by Sam Tarakajian
In this workshop, we’ll look at extending the functionality of Ableton Live with Max/MSP. Specifically, we’ll see how a Max for Live Device can receive audio and MIDI from Live, as well as creative ways to process that data. We’ll also look at the Live API, which lets Max control almost any part of the Live Set automatically. This has profound implications for sound design, sequencing and algorithmic composition.

Making music with Ableton Live is fun, obviously. Making music with Max/MSP is also fun. Making music with Ableton Live and Max/MSP together is almost too much fun. In this workshop, we’ll look at how to make Max and Live work together to accomplish almost any compositional task we can imagine. We’ll see how to use Max to build a new Live instrument using signal processing techniques unique to Max. We’ll also build a Max for Live device that can create generative rhythmic sequences, adding algorithmic composition to Live. Finally, we’ll build a Max for Live device that can walk through the Live Object Model, controlling the Live Set automatically.

The Digital Realm
"The Digital Realm"_x009d_ is a performance project that combines live theatrical movement , spoken word and costume with two and three dimensional animation and custom designed software which enables the projected elements to be controlled in real time. Using the Digital realm as an allegorical take off point , poetic text that describes the relationship between two metaphorical characters is used to emotionally and intellectually create a deep seated connection between the performer and the projected world. The animation, projection , custom software and costume is by Phyllis Bulkin Lehrer. Movement and voice is by Ashley Rose Lehrer . This project was first presented in 2012 with the interactive elements linked by Wii controllers. This 2016 version will use the technology of the Kinect2 and projection mapping as well as expanded versions of the text and movement. Additional interactive ceramic props will be included.

Rainbow Resonance
Tickets for the Staten Island Children's Museum cost $8 and must be purchased at the door.
Rainbow Resonance is a computer vision installation that generates colors and musical sounds of the equivalent sound frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, according to the motion of the participator. The audience is encouraged to participate in a playful performance that engages the body to produce colorful images and sound resonances through simple movements. Anyone can potentially create a personal experience within the installation. The color scheme is based on the visible light spectrum and is also inspired by the chakras.

Light wavelengths are transposed 40 octaves below, into audible sound frequencies and mapped to an 8 tone musical scale based on Pythagorean mathematics. The resulting eight-tone scale corresponds to the 'white keys' on the piano, and represents the seven predominant colors of the light spectrum.

An all encompassing composition of the frequencies occurs when the arms extend upwards towards the sky. The movement is reminiscent of the exercise 'Carrying the Moon' in Chi Kung, an ancient Chinese method of healing.

Disruption in the Art World: Artist as Entrepreneur
ArtsTech will host a discussion on the artist as entrepreneur. While the familiarity of galleries and other traditional models is sufficient for the sale and distribution of some artwork, there is much left to be desired for artists.
-What are other models or disruptions that we're seeing today-- either an individual artist or an organization -- that are bucking the traditional approach?
-How is success defined for an artist? If measured by revenue—do we weigh the total figure that goes to the studio or to individual artworks?
-Why do we look to the startup model for artists? How do we characterize the definition of a startup?

Harvestworks in Association with CT-SWaM presents All the More My Thoughts Multiply, a new work by Jane Rigler and Elizabeth Hoffman with video by Anna Weisling, and The Autio Visual Matrix by diNMachine
http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?eventId=6559875&dispatch=loadSelectionData

Jane Rigler and Elizabeth Hoffman with video by Anna Weisling

All the more my thoughts multiply

All the more my thoughts multiply is a work for flute, electroacoustic sound, and interactive video that explores the psychology and transformation of a lone character from the Noh play “Aoi-no-ue”, taken from the massive and influential 11th c. Japanese epic “Tale of Genji.” Possessiveness marks the greatest challenge to overcome. In this mono-drama the gestural significance of both the spatialized sound and the movements of the flutist weave together textures of light and music through an ancient Japanese folk story that asks: how do we navigate through our possessions?

This work is a commentary on the concept of “possession” as seen through an ancient Noh tale “Aoi-no-ue” (Lady Aoi), thought to be written by Zeami, sometime between 1363-1443. This story is based on an episode from theTales of Genji where Prince Genji’s mistress Lady Rokujo becomes furiously jealous of his wife Lady Aoi. Her jealous rage transforms into a “possession” such that Lady Rokujo’s living phantom spirit makes Lady Aoi mortally ill. The action in the Noh play focuses on the fight between the Shaman/Priest and the phantom spirit who is eventually exorcised and transforms Lady Rokujo.

The Audio Visual Matrix

An Interdisciplinary performance system commissioned by the Harvestworks Artist-in-Residence TEAM (Technology, Engineering, Art and Music) Lab

 

diNMachine will perform in eight-channel sound. It will be the first performance with the Audio Visual Matrix software diNMachine developed with Tommy Martinez in residency at Harvestworks. A short Q&A will follow.

 

The Audio Visual Matrix (AVM) is an interdisciplinary performance system that enables fast and flexible interconnections of audio and video data streams to modulate content. The inspiration comes from the “pin” type matrices found on synthesizers like the EMS Synthi, where players patch any modulation source to any destination. The AVM uses a similar grid system to create paths between elements (instruments, computers, cameras, etc.) and allows for feedback loops as well as typical modulation.

Rainbow Resonance
Tickets for the Staten Island Children's Museum cost $8 and must be purchased at the door.
Rainbow Resonance is a computer vision installation that generates colors and musical sounds of the equivalent sound frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, according to the motion of the participator. The audience is encouraged to participate in a playful performance that engages the body to produce colorful images and sound resonances through simple movements. Anyone can potentially create a personal experience within the installation. The color scheme is based on the visible light spectrum and is also inspired by the chakras.

Light wavelengths are transposed 40 octaves below, into audible sound frequencies and mapped to an 8 tone musical scale based on Pythagorean mathematics. The resulting eight-tone scale corresponds to the 'white keys' on the piano, and represents the seven predominant colors of the light spectrum.

An all encompassing composition of the frequencies occurs when the arms extend upwards towards the sky. The movement is reminiscent of the exercise 'Carrying the Moon' in Chi Kung, an ancient Chinese method of healing.

Creative Technologies Symposium 2016

Friday, May 6, 2016 1:00 - 6:00 PM
Art & Art Education @Teachers College, Columbia University

Emerging technologies continue to change the making, teaching, and learning of art. The creative technologies symposium addresses these changes and engages artists, educators, and technologists in an ongoing conversation. While the previous symposia worked to define creative technologies as a means for artistic expression, the upcoming symposium considers the successes and barriers of implementation within various learning environments. What are some of the new pedagogies that help bring technology-infused art to students and teachers alike? If there is a lot of excitement about technology in art making, where does the resistance come from? 

The Creative Technologies Symposium is part of the Creative Tech Week in New York City from April 28 -May 6.

FACETS Conference

FACETS started out of Facebook conversation between Jane, Phoenix, Mohini and Caroline on Jane's wall about a desire for a more laid back interdisciplinary art, technology, and video games "un-conference" that was just...diverse. We wanted to attend a conference with more women and more minority speakers. We wanted to attend a conference that had video games AND art AND technology but not on separate panels. We wanted all of these things in one space...so we decided to make one. And that's how FACETS was born. 

Organized by Caroline Sinders and created by Jane Friedhoff, Phoenix Perry, Mohini Dutta and Caroline Sinders, FACETS is a new type of conference hosted and sponsored by Integrated Digital Media (IDM) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering with support from NYU MAGNET.

Rainbow Resonance
Tickets for the Staten Island Children's Museum cost $8 and must be purchased at the door.
Rainbow Resonance is a computer vision installation that generates colors and musical sounds of the equivalent sound frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum, according to the motion of the participator. The audience is encouraged to participate in a playful performance that engages the body to produce colorful images and sound resonances through simple movements. Anyone can potentially create a personal experience within the installation. The color scheme is based on the visible light spectrum and is also inspired by the chakras.

Light wavelengths are transposed 40 octaves below, into audible sound frequencies and mapped to an 8 tone musical scale based on Pythagorean mathematics. The resulting eight-tone scale corresponds to the 'white keys' on the piano, and represents the seven predominant colors of the light spectrum.

An all encompassing composition of the frequencies occurs when the arms extend upwards towards the sky. The movement is reminiscent of the exercise 'Carrying the Moon' in Chi Kung, an ancient Chinese method of healing.

Harvestworks in Association with Knockdown Center presents Song and CYCLONE, an evening with Morton Subtonick and Joan La Barbara
Morton Subotnick will present SpacePiece, an evening-length, site-specific composition for the Knockdown Center, an architecturally and acoustically superior space located in Maspeth, New York. The work features live electronics by the composer diffused in the space by 3D speaker arrays created by acoustic engineer Paul Geluso and performed by Ne(x)tworks, a collaborative ensemble of seven musicians. A Harvestworks Commission.

Morton Subotnick is an American composer of electronic music, best known for his Silver Apples of the Moon, the first electronic work commissioned by a record company, Nonesuch.
Paul Geluso received support from the Rockefeller Foundation;s New York City's Cultural Innovation Fund to develop and build a 3D sound processing and speaker system that could produce complex directional sound radiation characteristics. This area of sonic exploration holds vast possibilities for artistic expression and public exhibition.

Ne(x)tworks is devoted to performing works of living composers as well as enriching understanding of the works of American experimental composers who have influenced their compositions.

The new work by Morton Subotnick, composed especially for the ensemble will focus on Ne(x)tworks improvisational skills as well as their abilities to realize fully notated scores.

---

CYCLONE is a surround sound performance of the newly restored multichannel work by Joan La Barbara scored for multiple voices, percussion and Arp 2600 synthesizer sounds, for "semi-live" performance on multiple speakers with the original light panning device custom designed by Ralph Jones. The work was last performed in 1977 at PS1 in NYC (Queens) and was an award-winning sound sculpture installation/performance work (independent artist submission) at ISCM World Music Days (Weltmusiktage) in Bonn, Germany. Both installation/performances were done with analog audio tape (mixed to mono) and moved in the space using light-panning device and penlight. 

Joan La Barbara is an American vocalist and composer known for her explorations of non-conventional or extended vocal techniques.

The Kinefy Workshop
Kinefy is a software framework designed for enhancing conventional musical instruments through the body movements and gestures of the performer. It provides tools for using widely available wearable sensors to extend the expressive possibilities of existing musical instruments. Through Machine Learning technologies, Kinefy can adapt its algorithms to the various movements and postures required for playing different musical instruments, thus allowing control of live electronics and sound processing in an organic and intuitive way. Kinefy expands and alters the sound of a conventional instrument using complex techniques such as physical modelling and granular synthesis, thus allowing the musician to explore new sonic territories using movements that merge with -- or complement -- techniques with which he or she is already familiar with. The motivations behind Kinefy arise from studies of embodiment in music performance, which suggest that movement is an essential component of music cognition, and that the gestures of a musician are an expressive feature that contribute to the overall musical experience. Kinefy also aims at redefining the ways motion sensors are used in musical performance. By allowing a for quick and intuitive control, Kinefy enables musicians to experiment with new ways of playing their instrument, without having to modify it the instrument or to manually tweak complex software parameters. During the workshop, the participants will learn and share techniques for interactive music performance using wearable motion sensors. A performance night will follow, where Federico Visi and Andrew Telichan Phillips will perform pieces involving motion sensors, live electronics and acoustic instruments.
