Musique et technologie : Éveiller - Enseigner - Créer

INA-GRM - Fri, 08/21/2015 - 09:51

P o r t r a i t s  p o l y c h r o m e s n° 22 : hors série thématique

sortie août 2015   Ce livre, centré sur les apports des technologies électroacoustiques, recueille les témoignages, en 2014-2015, de musiciens usagers de la technologie en pédagogie musicale, de chercheurs en sciences de la musique et de responsables institutionnels. Toutes les classes d'âge et tous les niveaux de compétence sont visités : de l'éveil musical en maternelle et souvent à un âge plus avancé (car il n'est jamais trop tard pour entrer en musique !), jusqu'à l'enseignement spécialisé des compositeurs. La musique vue comme un processus cognitif et culturel, l'écoute comme principe actif, dans une approche perceptive, voilà résumée la « démarche concrète » très souvent citée dans cet ouvrage et qui ne cesse de nous ouvrir des horizons nouveaux de création. Un index thématique sur les grands thèmes de pédagogie musicale permet de traverser le livre sous de multiples angles ; - un index des noms propres ; - et des documents sonores et visuels sur le site du GRM complètent l'ensemble.       Sommaire du livre Sous la direction d'Évelyne Gayou   « Claire Renard, pionnière des pédagogies d'éveil musical au GRM », entretien avec Claire Renard « Recherches pédagogiques et fondamentales au GRM et au-delà », entretien avec François Delalande « Transmettre le goût du son », entretien avec Serge de Laubier « Pour des citoyens mélomanes doués d'un sens critique », entretien avec Vinvent Maestracci « Fragments d’un enseignement de la musique concrète de Pierre Schaeffer au G.R.M. dans les années 1964-1970 », par Beatriz Ferreyra « Aventure d'enseignement, aventure de partage », entretien avec Philippe Mion « Enseigner la composition… Un cheminement à plusieurs pour un enrichissement mutuel », par Lucie Prod'homme « Révéler l’instinct créateur – l’inouï », par Christine Groult « Écrire, composer, créer », par Denis Dufour « La musique mixte : perspectives pédagogiques », par Andrea Cohen « L’enseignement de la composition acousmatique en question », par Francis Dhomont « Création d’une section électroacoustique complète dans un conservatoire supérieur, en Belgique », par Annette Vande Gorne « Enseigner l’informatique musicale, former des réalisateurs en informatique musicale », par Laurent Pottier « La technologie est ludique », par Sébastien Béranger « Du sillon fermé à la classe inversée », par Dominique Saint-Martin Index des noms propres Index thématique   Prix : 12 €   Éditeur : INA Distributeur : INA-GRM grm@ina.fr Année de parution : 2015 205 pages ISBN 978-2-86938-236-7    Documents multimédias associés :   Cours d'écriture acousmatique, à partir des Variations acousmatiques, par Denis Dufour    Variations acousmatiques - [2011]    Initiation à la musique mixte au conservatoire de Vitry sur Seine, par Andrea Cohen

Similarity and Feature Learning for EEG Recordings of Music Perception and Imagination

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 08/17/2015 - 23:39
Date:  Mon, 08/31/2015 - 10:00am - 11:00am Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar As we’ve measured more data, and have better algorithms, we can move past looking at the positive and negative peaks in an EEG signal, and start decoding them.  Decoding means finding the hidden meaning in a signal, and that is now possible for many situations. We’ve talked about linear decoders applied to measuring attention, based on our work in Telluride.  Sebastian Strober will be talking about non-linear methods, using non-linear deep neural networks. Stober, a post-doctoral fellow from the University of Western Ontario, will be speaking about his recent research combining deep learning with EEG.

Call for Nordic participants to Article biennale 2016

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 12:09

io-lab is calling for Nordic artists and academics who can contribute to the program for the upcoming Article biennale in Stavanger, Norway 2016.

The art exhibition will be supplemented by events in the form of discussion panels, artist’s presentations and activities aimed at children and youths. The development of a mobile laboratory that will tour the district during the exhibition period is also planned.

They ask prospective participants to send an email presenting their suggested contribution to the program. The submitted material should not exceed 2Mb, and should be sent to contact@article.no

THEME for Article Biennale 2016

The New Eden – or the new paradise … What happens when people gains the knowledge of everything and the opportunity to create things in its image? Where is the boundary between good and evil, and will we be able to know everything or have eternal life?

According to the Judeo-Christian creation myth the first humans lived carefree and innocent in them to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.

The 2016 Article Biennial exhibition The New Eden explores our advanced knowledge of manipulating life, and where we might be headed with this.

In the New Eden are creatures that have been created through sophisticated intervention in the natural order. Today we have enough knowledge to create gold, make skin resist bullets, and store information in DNA. What do we do with this knowledge? And what does it do to us? What are the implications of the new biotechnology on society?

We are calling for Nordic artists and academics who can contribute to the program.

The art exhibition will be supplemented by events in the form of discussion panels, artist’s presentations and activities aimed at children and youths. The development of a mobile laboratory that will tour the district during the exhibition period is also planned.

We ask prospective participants to send an email presenting their suggested contribution to the program. The submitted material should not exceed 2Mb, and should be sent to contact@article.no

Elin Vister: Røster III at Ultima

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 07:47

Røster III takes the listener on an aural journey through a series of sound tableauxs carefully sculptured and arranged by the artist’s archive of field recordings from the Røst Arcipelago, in Lofoten, Northern Norway between 2010 and 2015.

The work places the listening body in a time-space continuum where nature and culture co-exist and are given equal importance, giving ear to the eternal variation of voices and spaces; the geophonies and anthrophonies of Røst.

Røster III is a sound work for eight channels or more, created and composed by Elin Mar Øyen Vister, site specifically mixed and spatialized in collaboration with Trond Lossius and BEK in Bergen.

At Deichmanske hovedbibliotek, Røster III will be experienced in the old music room, which has a hexagonal space and was originally acoustically treated for the purpose of listening to the music library. The installation is created around a set up of eight speakers arranged in a vertical and a horizontal landscape, between the books in the bookshelves, and the room will at most times have no lights. The listening sense is hence given sensual priority in our otherwise dominantly visual culture.

Maja S. K. Ratkje will be joining as guest performer on WeDoMagic at the opening of the installation.

Kristine Tjøgersen (clarinet). Inga Byrkjeland (cello). Maja S. K. Ratkje (vocal). Elin Mar Øyen Vister (mix, objects og electronics).

Entrance to the opening is free, as part of Oslo cultural night.

Time and place:
  • Ultima, Deichmanske hovedbibliotek, Oslo - 11/09/2015 to 23/10/2015

Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper 1.0.b5

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 08/07/2015 - 12:47

A new beta version of Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper is available at ambisonictoolkit.net

This version fixes an issue with the binaural decoder and Spherical HRTFs at 88.2 and 96 kHz. Thanks to Juan Pampin for pointing out this bug in the code.

Additionally, there’s a new channel (within track) mute and solo utility plugin that can come in handy when doing effects processing on a B-format => BtoA => FXs => AtoB => Bformat signal processing chain. I would then insert the MuteSoloChannels plugin before the AtoB plugin in order to monitor the effect of the processing on each of the channels of the A-format signal.
