I’m glad to announce, that my piece Caladan was selected for a concert performance at this years edition of the Linux Audio Conference (April 12-15, 2012). The conference is hosted by the CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics) of the Stanford University in California, USA.
The Linux Audio Conference is the international conference about Open Source Software for music, sound and other media with Linux as the main platform. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the event and it is the first time the LAC takes place in the United States. It brings together musicians, composers, sound artists, software developers, researchers and engineers working with Linux and other Open Source Software as an open, stable, professional platform for audio and media research and music production.
Next Saturday (11/12/2011), my new piece Caladan will be premiered in the concert Spacy Sounds in the Schönbrunner Schlosstheater in Vienna. The piece was written for the new “Spatial-Acoustics-Instrument” of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, which is a combination system of Ambisonics and Wavefield Synthesis. This instrument will be introduced to the public during this concert. Next to my piece, there will be music by Karlheinz Essl, Richard Karger, Katharina Clement, Marko Ciciliani, Caroline Profanter, Igor Lintz-Maues, Onur Dülger and more.
A part of Caladan will be previewed two days earlier at the same place, during a gala of the university. Thereby, single sounds of the piece will be gestically spatialised by the usage of two Theremin-Controllers.
Found this on Youtube. An extract from the multimedia-piece ‘Be Here Now’, I composed together with Madjid Tahriri in 2009. The piece was performed by the Time Art Ensemble during the festival ‘Düsseldorfer Altstadtherbst’ in autumn 2009.
Next week, my piece ‘Out of the Fridge’ will be played at the Hilltown New Music Festival. The festival will be held from july, 15th till july, 17th in the grounds of the Hilltown House in Castlepollard, Ireland.
On coming friday (june, 24th), my piece ‘Ist Niemals Jetzt’ for two voices, video and Live-Electronics will be premiered at the Brick-5 in Vienna. Beside my piece there will be new works from my friends and colleagues Onur Dülger, Alexander Chernyshkov and Alejandro del Valle-Lattanzio.
Tomorrow (06/16/2011), my stoptrickmovie ‘Am I an Image’ will be performed at the Festival next_generation 4.0 at the ZKM in Karlsruhe.
The festival is a required event for anyone interested in knowing what will be developed aesthetically in the coming years in electronic music, and for anyone who wishes to be at the hub of contemporary creative output.
