SPRANG at soft galleri, Oslo

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 11/27/2014 - 23:18

Opening Thursday 27. November at 6PM.
Exhibition period: 27. November 2014 – 1. January 2015.

Artists Hilde Hauan Johnsen and Maia Urstad has for several years been working on joint projects and exhibitions where they use new technologies as artistic language and tools. This is also the case in the installation ESCAPADE; consisting of sound and fiber optics.

The starting point for the work is taken from ancient knowledge. In the exhibition, the ancient textile handcraft technique, “warp”, meets sonic phenomenons such as overtones, sound waves and vibration based on Pythagoras’ theories of acoustics and geometry.

The exhibition is supported by Kulturrådet, Kunst og Ny teknologi, BEK-Bergen senter for Elektronisk Kunst, KHiB and Atelier Nord.

Soutenance de thèse de Simon Benacchio

IRCAM - Thu, 11/27/2014 - 00:00

"Contrôle actif modal appliqué aux instruments de musique à cordes" - 3 décembre à 14h

Simon Benacchio soutiendra sa thèse de doctorat, réalisé à l'Ircam au sein de l'équipe Acoustique instrumentale, thèse dirigée et encadrée par René Caussé, Adrien Mamou-Mani et Baptiste Chomette, intitulée : Contrôle actif modal appliqué aux instruments de musique à cordes.

Résumé

Cette thèse se propose d'appliquer un contrôle actif modal aux instruments de musique de la famille des cordes. Les objectifs principaux sont de proposer une démarche et des méthodes adaptées permettant l'application de ce type de contrôle, d'explorer les possibilités qu'il offre et d'en étudier les effets sur les instruments. Tout d'abord, les types de contrôle existants et leurs applications aux instruments de musique sont rapidement présentés. Le constat que les paramètres modaux des instruments sont de bons descripteurs de ses attributs perceptifs mène à choisir la méthode de contrôle actif modal dont le formalisme est présenté.Afin de répondre à des problématiques propres aux instruments de musique, comme par exemple modifier l'amplitude de vibration des modes de la structure, des méthodes dérivées d'un contrôle d'état modal sont proposées. Une méthode d'adimensionnement en temps du modèle utilisé dans le système de contrôle ainsi qu'une méthode de contrôle des états dérivé et proportionnel sont présentées.

Le contrôle est ensuite appliqué expérimentalement sur un monocorde, une guitare et un violoncelle. Pour cela, un système de contrôle temps réel fonctionnant grâce à un environnement libre est développé. Les possibilités offertes par ce type de contrôle ainsi que ses limites sont explorées grâce à ces montages expérimentaux.

Enfin, un cas particulier de phénomène régissant le fonctionnement des instruments de musique à cordes est étudié à l'aide du dispositif de contrôle proposé. Le couplage corde/table d'harmonie est observé, étudié analytiquement puis contrôlé. Afin de confronter le contrôle actif à d'autres méthodes d'investigation, les résultats du contrôle sont comparés à ceux obtenus à l'aide d'une méthode de synthèse sonore.

HOSPICE LAZY - Bailing Out the Universe from Imminent Doom

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 15:14

Hospice Lazy is a new collaboration between the Alpaca Ensemble and Bergen-based British composer Alwynne Pritchard. BEK has supported the project with rehearsal space and equipment.

Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s idea of a “hospice des paresseux”, a place where lazy people can take refuge, the piece explores the many manifestations and implications of laziness through music, text, movement and specially constructed machines designed in collaboration with Vigdis Haugtrø and Trøndelag Ortopedisk Verksted. Lighting design by Sune Schjelderup.

Alpaca Ensemble is a flexible ensemble of varying size and composition, with a core consisting of Else Bø (piano), Sigrid Elisabeth Stang (violin) and Marianne Baudouin Lie (cello). Alpaca initiates both large and small innovative projects within genre-breaking contemporary music, and develop a repertoire across established art forms. For more information, visit www.alpacaensemble.com.

Alwynne Pritchard is an artist, performer and composer. Her compositions and performances have been heard across Europe, America and Indonesia and she has worked with leading musicians and ensembles across the globe. Alwynne Pritchard’s music is published by Verlag Neue Musik. For more information and material, visit www.alwynnepritchard.co.uk.

Latest developments in spatial audio and computer aided composition tools from IRCAM

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 19:49

3 leading researchers from IRCAM visit Oslo for a series of presentations, workshops and round-table discussions relating to spatial audio and computer aided composition. The meetings take place at fourMs lab at University of Oslo and Norwegian Academy of Music, with additional participation from BEK, NOTAM and the Grieg Academy.

The meeting is a follow up to the collaboration between BEK, Anders Vinjar and Ircam over the past 1 1/2 year regarding porting OpenMusic to Linux.

Invited guests:

Jean Bresson: Leading the Research and Development part on computer­aided composition at IRCAM.

Thibaut Carpentier: Research and Development Engineer; Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team, responsible for Spat’s design and development.

Dimitri Bouche: Ph.D Candidate in Computer Science applied to Music.

Carpentier, Bouche and Bresson are deeply involved in the development of IRCAM’s spatial audio and computer aided composition tools. Recently, spatial audio within spat has grown to include very high order 3D ambisonics and wavefield synthesis in an efficient, flexible and powerful configuration. Likewise, OpenMusic has transformed as tool for instrumental composers to a tool that integrates signal processing. Our guests from IRCAM will present their latest developments in a morning of research­oriented presentations and in an afternoon of practical spatial audio demos and workshops.
