Akiko Hatakeyama - Storytelling, memories... real-time computer-based interactivity

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 04/23/2018 - 23:11
Date:  Fri, 05/04/2018 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Guest Lecture Akiko Hatakeyama is a composer/performer of electroacoustic music and intermedia. She explores the boundaries between written music, improvisation, electronics, real-time computer-based interactivity, and visual media. Storytelling, memories, and nature play an important role in Akiko's work, and she most often finds beauty in simplicity.  Akiko's practice focuses on realizing her ideas of relations between the body and mind into intermedia composition, often in conjunction with building customized instruments/interfaces. It is a form of nonverbal communication with her inner self and with the environment, including the audience. By somatically actuating perceptions with sound, light, and haptic objects, her ideas of relations between the body and mind become embraceable. FREE Open to the Public

"El Delta Sona" in the second edition of AcustiCat

Phonos project - UPF - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 12:00

Phonos will take part in the next Congrés Català d'Acústica (AcustiCat) to present the project El Delta Sona. This project, which began in 2013, consists of a series of workshops with the aim to promote the knowledge and interest of secondary and high school students to the natural environment and technology through work with sound. In these workshops, students go through the natural spaces of the Delta del Llobregat recording sounds, identifying them and finally making a sound map of the space with the Freesound platform.

AcustiCat, which this year celebrates its second edition from April 24 to 26 in the city of Terrassa, is a congress on environmental acoustics that addresses and deals with a set of challenges and dilemas (including the participation of Phonos within the dilemma 4 : Actions and projects of participation and citizen science towards noise: Pecha Kucha). The presentation of El Delta Sona will be in the Sala Ferran Casablanques of the Museu de la Ciència i de la Tecnica de Catalunya starting at 12:15am on Thursday, April 26. The full program of the day can be found at this link: http://www.congresacusti.cat/#/programa

Ángel Faraldo, new Artistic Director of Phonos

Phonos project - UPF - Tue, 04/03/2018 - 13:54

Ángel Faraldo joins Phonos as Artistic Director.

Active as an experimental music maker, Ángel Faraldo extends his work with sound installations, site-specific actions and sound design for dance and opera. He is interested in processes that maximise minimal resources, developing a critical and ecological perspective of live-electronic music, as materialised in his cycle The Feedback Study Series, his digital synthesiser MISS or his approach toward the no-input-mixer. Furthermore, he has done significant labor performing and producing live-electronic music for soloists and ensembles such as Frédérique Cambreling, Naoko Yoshino, Ensemble Sillages, Placa Base Col·lectiu Instrumental, and especially as a member of Vertixe Sonora Ensemble since its foundation. He has studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Music (Madrid) and the Institute of Sonology (The Hague), obtaining his PhD degree from the Music Technology Group at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona). https://www.angelfaraldo.info/

By adding this position, Phonos wants to boost its activities and open new perspectives in the areas of education, research, creation and promotion.
