John Schott, electric guitar -- Matthew Wright, digital sound

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 07:17
Date:  Sat, 06/02/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert John Schott and Matt Wright have been musically collaborating for 18 years both as a duo and also with the late David Wessel as That Situated Trio, who performed in the U.S. and Europe. Matt and John have carried on with recent duo performances in the Bay Area and New York. Together they develop a number of musical programs and interfaces for Matt that provide certain limits and affordances for their improvisatory explorations. These include pre-recorded samples of John playing, as well as programs that listen to John's live guitar and respond, and programs that allow Matt to improvise harmonically, melodically, and rhythmically. The music can range from abstract, contemplative, thrashing, grooving, not grooving, bluesy, Viennese, and downright insane.

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 05/09/2018 - 02:48
Date:  Sat, 05/19/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert Ekmeles Vocal Ensemble performs new works for sextet and electronics by Stanford composers: Chris Lortie, Jessie Marino, Charlie Sdraulig, Davor Branimir Vincze, Nick Virzi, and Andrew Watts.

Ekmeles is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new and rarely-heard works, and gems of the historical avant garde. New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles.

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:
