Atari-Noise Board 1.2
An image received from Ricky Graham, who just received a batch of my Atari-Noise Boards. I hear he will be using them in his Musical Interaction Design class next semester at Stevens Institute of Technology.
Version 1.2 of my Atari-Noise Boards are for sale on the ‘kits’ page (even though the info & images have not been updated!). This version has a few tweaks and additional controls. New designs will be available in the future & I have been looking into creating synth housing kits to go with them.
Sound On A String
After several late weekends working in SARC on the installation – Sound On A String launches next week. Get down to the launch and enjoy the installation & free beverages!
Launch Party Facebook event page
A few pictures from the audience study we ran in SARC this week as part of the SIEMPRE project in collaboration with Queen’s University psychologists. The audience members were hooked up with various physiological sensors, feedback devices & motion tracking while they watched several performances.
Sound On A String Progress
Further progress from the installation (opening the 8th December) I’m working on with Paul Stapleton, Javier Jaimovich & Adnan Marquez Borbon.
Performance with Plaid @ Belfast Festival
Tomorrow (27/10/12) I will be collaborating with the fantastic Plaid duo in a performance at the Belfast Festival. Myself and a group of other artists from SARC have been collaborating with the duo all week on a large audio visual performance. The performance is in the (very large and reverberant) atrium of the Ulster Museum and may be strategically distributed around the space. Tickets are available on the festival website. Come down and see what we have worked on!
Sound On A String Prototype
Here’s an early prototype of something I have recently been working on for an installation funded by the Dublin City of Science 2012 festival. With Paul Stapleton, Javier Jaimovich & Adnan Marquez Borbon - We are constructing an interactive sound installation bringing the tin can telephone into the technological era. Construction updates will follow as we progress! The installation will run from the 8th-11th December in SARC.
This Saturday (24/03/12) I will be standing in with the Vultures Quartet in providing a live soundtrack for the Victoria Snaith play, Domestic Tinnitus. After the play there will be some noisy improvised performances between the Vultures, Caroline Pugh, Adnan Marquez-Borbon and myself. Expect a mixup of homemade electronic and acoustic instruments and wild improvised sounds! Tickets for the event are available here.
Bright Club Belfast
This Thursday (22/03/12) I will be performing at Bright Club Belfast with Will Connor of the London based Vultures Quartet. Bright Club is “the thinking person’s variety night, where comedy meets curiosity.” This month the theme is conflict, with a load of speakers, comedians and us making a load of noise! Expect home-made sounds, electronics and blind improvisation. The event page is here, tickets available here & here.
Days on End Workshop
This weekend the updated version of my Atari-Noise Board will be making noise at the ‘Electronics, Instruments and Sound’ workshop at the Days on End Festival in Cork. Robby Collins, Ed Devane and Diarmuid MacDiarmada will be building and exploring electronic instruments with participants in what sounds like a great workshop!
