Austrian Cultural Forum New York shared their event.
What a great series of performances we've had so far this week! Saturday is the last day of Moving Sounds and gives an insight into the making of electronic music, conveying the joy of experimenting in two free workshops. In the first, Bernhard Rasinger will introduce you to modular synth circuits, oscilloscopes, and the visual aspect of electronic sound synthesis. In the second workshop, Powrplnt artists and affiliates will bring "jamming" into the digital realm, utilizing Midi controllers to reconsider the computer as instrument in its own right. RSVP below to join in!
OSCILLOSCOPICS with BERNHARD RASINGER In this free @[285317098502380:274:Moving Sounds] 2017 workshop, @[645688507:2048:Bernhard Rasinger] will introduce you to modular synth circuits, oscilloscopes, and the visual aspect of electronic sound synthesis. There will be basic analogue oscilloscope training to visualize sounds and other electric signals in real time. Once you are acquainted and are all tangled up in a knot of cables, it is time to let the electrons fly. The dance of signals will take you on a journey, where sine- triangle and square waves are your travel companions. The oscilloscope will tell you little stories about the circuits you are probing. We will talk about obsolescence, lissajous figures and phase modulation. KEY INFORMATION - Free - The workshop can be attended by everyone who is interested and older than 3 years. - Bring your set of headphones with a standard small jack to listen to the sounds while you are scoping. - There will be 4 workstations available. ABOUT BERNHARD RASINGER @[645688507:2048:Bernhard Rasinger] is an engineer, visual sound artist and cofounder of Kunstverein NewJörg Vienna. He is a regular guest at international experimental music festivals, music fairs and soldering workshops. Performance highlights include: Ars Electonica (Linz), Superbooth (Berlin), Modular Days (Barcelona), and Machines in Music (New York). ABOUT POWRPLNT @[282936975204963:274:Powrplnt] is a space where the digital arts community engages the next generation of creators. It functions as gallery space, internet lounge and an environment where people from all backgrounds may learn the skills necessary to express themselves creatively in today's networks. Organized by Angelina Dreem, Anibal Luque and @[570286899:2048:Salome Asega], POWRPLNT aims to make the digital world accessible, personal and more human. ABOUT MOVING SOUNDS The ACFNY's Moving Sounds Festival of music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue was founded together with Argento Ensemble in 2009. Intersecting artistic genres and breaking cultural boundaries, @[285317098502380:274:Moving Sounds] brings together fresh works, rare pairings and contemporary approaches to music, performance and visual media, drawing from past traditions, while balancing on the cutting edge of tomorrow. The current program draws from the deep pockets of knowledge and experimentation at the juncture of art, technology and society of the renowned international institutions, @[55661199917:274:Ars Electronica] and @[84534398755:274:Eyebeam], together with @[58496764998:274:Issue Project Room] and @[282936975204963:274:Powrplnt]. Moving Sounds 2017 takes place between October 15 and 21, 2017 in various locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan. www.movingsoundsfestival.org

Austrian Cultural Forum New York shared Issue Project Room's event.
As part of this year's Moving Sounds festival, Issue Project Room presents a performance celebrating the work of pioneering French composer Éliane Radigue on October 20. The evening spans her acoustic and electronic compositions and features the world premiere of "OCCAM RIVER XVI," performed by composer and clarinetist Carol Robinson and harpist Rhodri Davies. The program also includes a performance of Radigue’s 2013 piece "OCCAM IX" by Laetitia Sonami and "Mila's Song in the Rain" from "The Songs of Milarepa", a tribute to the Tibetan saint and poet from the eleventh century.
Friday, October 20th, ISSUE presents an evening celebrating the work of pioneering French composer Éliane Radigue (in absentia), presented as a part of @[228688903812425:274:Austrian Cultural Forum New York]’s @[285317098502380:274:Moving Sounds] festival. Following her honoring at ISSUE’s 2017 Gala, the evening spans her acoustic and electronic compositions and features the world premiere of "OCCAM RIVER XVI," performed by composer and clarinetist Carol Robinson and harpist Rhodri Davies, as well as a performance of Radigue’s 2013 piece "OCCAM IX" by Laetitia Sonami. The evening also showcases "Mila's Song in the Rain" from "The Songs of Milarepa," a tribute to the Tibetan saint and poet from the eleventh century. Released in 1983 and compiled in 2001 by Mimi Johnson’s Lovely Music, the song cycle is arguably considered the masterpiece of Radigue’s early electronic works. The recording of "Mila's Song in the Rain" is presented as a focused listening environment, demonstrating the signature organic mysticism of Radigue’s Arp synthesizer work alongside Lama Kunga Rinpoche and Robert Ashley’s respective Tibetan and English readings. After completing her ground-breaking Naldjorlak trio for two basset horns and cello, Éliane Radigue began a new musical project called "OCCAM OCEAN." She initiated the cycle with a solo harp piece written for Rhodri Davies in 2011. Little by little, solos for a wide range of instruments were created, including three for electronic instruments, and then combined into various chamber groupings. The combinations are seemingly infinite, a compositional coincidence that was extremely motivating to Radigue. Her first trio, "OCCAM DELTA II," was written for bass clarinet, viola and harp, and premiered by Carol Robinson, Julia Eckhardt and Davies in 2012. It, and other pieces for these performers, will soon be released by shiiin on a double CD. Both Robinson and Davies had already played in several of the larger groupings, but it was by chance last January, while warming up for a concert in Hamburg that they happened to play the birbynė (a sort of Lithuanian folk clarinet) and harp at the same time. Since Davies would soon be in Paris, he contacted Radigue, and proposed that she hear these amazing sounds. The work began immediately, with everyone involved feeling stunned by the luscious richness of how the bowed harp and beating birbynė multiphonics melded into something particularly expressive. Part of the magic may have been due to how long both performers had been exploring and performing Radigue’s music, and the subsequent transformative understanding they shared. As the rehearsals progressed, the new work, "OCCAM RIVER XVI," stretched to more than 45 minutes, but as is typical of Radigue’s work, duration has little meaning in an all-encompassing emotional listening experience as this promises to be. "OCCAM IX," the ninth composition in the "OCCAM OCEAN" composition cycle, was created with Laetitia Sonami on electronics with her new instrument, the Spring Spyre. Sonami originally studied with Radigue in France in 1976. While her music took on a very different expression through her design of unique controllers and live performance, they both remained very close. In 2011, Sonami requested Eliane to create a piece for her new instrument. Their meetings took place during the winter 2012 in France, after which Radigue gave her permission to premiere the piece in the Fall 2013. Three audio pick-ups on the Spring Spyre are analyzed and trained through neural networks to create subtle real time modulations of digital synthesis. The work mode is based on an individual “image” illustrated and evoked within each solo -- where each musician is guided by his or her personal “image.” This provides the essential sound, letting descriptive words and evocations establish a system of communication as the piece is being elaborated. This intuitive-instinctive process guides the performer to the very essence of the composition. Sonami describes the process as akin to oral transmission of ancient traditional music. PROGRAM: Eliane Radigue: "Songs of Milarepa," "Mila's Song in the Rain" (19:10’) Eliane Radigue: "OCCAM IX" - Laetitia Sonami (30’) Intermission Eliane Radigue: "OCCAM RIVER XVI" - Carol Robinson & Rhodri Davies (45-50’) Working since the 1950s, French composer Éliane Radigue’s profound impact on extended technique and minimalism has developed in parallel to the widely celebrated careers of minimalist composers in New York City. Still, the artistic trajectory of her work remains largely underexposed and her inherent distinctions from the male-dominated classification of minimalism remain underemphasized. With her first compositions presented in the late 1960s, her work was almost exclusively created on a single synthesizer, the Arp 2500 modular system and tape. Since 2001, she has composed mainly for acoustic instruments. Radigue’s enduring artistic history often intersected with ISSUE, including one of the first ever performances at ISSUE’s 22 Boerum Theater. In 2010, she introduced the New York premiere of her 2009 acoustic composition Naldjorlak. Her masterpiece Songs of Milarepa, as well the American and World premieres of OCCAM III, OCCAM XVI, OCCAM X and OCCAM RIVER III performed by Carol Robinson and Nate Wooley, were presented at ISSUE. Radigue has inspired many across the spectrum of ISSUE’s community and remains a vital pioneer whose methods resonate timelessly. In honor of her of contributions to electronic music and sound art, Radigue was also awarded Prix Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica in Austria in 2006. To say that Carol Robinson is a Franco-American composer and clarinetist is perhaps too restrictive to describe the eclecticism of her experience and passion. She is not someone who likes the middle ground. She graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory before continuing her study of contemporary music in Paris thanks to a H.H. Wooley grant. Whether playing repertoire or more adventurous material, she performs in major venues and festivals the world over (Festival d’Automne, MaerzMuzik, Archipel, RomaEuropa, Wien Modern, Huddersfield…), and works closely with musicians from a wide stylistic spectrum. A fervent improviser, she prefers the most open musical situations and regularly collaborates with choreographers and visual artists. She initially began composing by writing music theater pieces, and has since received commissions from a wide variety of ensembles and institutions. Recent works include a pocket opera for baroque ensemble, Mr Barbe bleue (Commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture), and The Weather Pieces, a cycle for solo instruments and electronics. Robinson’s recordings demonstrate the breadth of her work. In addition to her own compositions, there are monographic CDs of composers Giacinto Scelsi, Luigi Nono, Morton Feldman, Luciano Berio, Eliane Radigue, or Pill Niblock, as well as classical music, alternative rock, and jazz. Rhodri Davies was born in 1971 and lives in Swansea, South Wales. He plays harp, electric harp, live-electronics and builds wind, water, ice, dry ice and fire harp installations. He has released four solo albums: Trem, Over Shadows, Wound Response and An Air Swept Clean of All Distance. His regular groups include: HEN OGLEDD (with Richard Dawson and Dawn Bothwell), Cranc, a duo with John Butcher, The Sealed Knot, Common Objects and a trio with John Tilbury and Michael Duch. He has recorded, toured and/or performed with the following artists: David Sylvian, Jenny Hval, Mark Fell, Kahimi Karie, Laura Cannell, Lina Lapelyte, Sachiko M, Bill Orcutt, Jim O’Rourke, Ben Patterson, Christian Marclay and David Toop. In 2008 he collaborated with the visual artist Gustav Metzger on ‘Self-cancellation’, a large-scale audio-visual collaboration in London and Glasgow. New pieces for solo harp have been composed for him by: Eliane Radigue, Philip Corner, Phill Niblock, Christian Wolff, Alison Knowles, Mieko Shiomi and Yasunao Tone. In 2012 he was the recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Grants to Artists Award and since 2016 is a Chapter Associate Artist. Laetitia Sonami was born in France and settled in the United States in 1975 to pursue her interest in live electronic music. She studied with Eliane Radigue, Joel Chadabe, Robert Ashley and David Behrman. Sonami’s sound performances, live-film collaborations and sound installations focus on issues of presence and participation. She has devised new gestural controllers for performance and applies new technologies and appropriated media to achieve an expression of immediacy through sound, place and objects. Recent projects include her duo Sparrows and Ortolans with James Fei, a new live film made in collaboration with SUE-C based on Calvino’s Cosmicomics and the current installation of ”le Corps Sonore” at the Rubin Museum, NYC, with Bob Bielecki and Eliane Radigue. Sonami has received numerous awards among which the Herb Alpert Awards in the Arts and the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Awards. She currently is visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute, Mills College (CCM) and Bard College MFA program. @[228688903812425:274:Austrian Cultural Forum New York]’s 8th Annual Moving Sounds Festival: Ars Electronica / @[84534398755:274:Eyebeam] Edition @[228688903812425:274:Austrian Cultural Forum New York]’s @[285317098502380:274:Moving Sounds] Festival of music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue was founded together with Argento Ensemble in 2009.
