Our spatialization of Xenakis’ Concret PH and Varèse’s Poème électronique, as reconstructed by the VEP Project, will be played on an 8-chan ring for the “Random Walks: Music of Xenakis and beyond” event, organised by The Fields Institute, together with the Perimeter Institute and the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, Canada.
Humbly proud to be there with my work on two so relevant music pieces.
On Dec 2nd we will be in Athens at Megaron to present the VEP project with a concert using my 8 chans implementation. Helas I would not be there!
It seems incredible but The SuperCollider Book is finally out by MIT Press. We have contributed with a chapter n the VEP project.
The VEP project in NY has been reviewed by The Wire, March 2010.
It seems that the audio processing stuff I implemented worked fine: “the digital manipulation of the original sound material was admirable and effective”.
Here some shots from NY. Great success (and so much fun). (Maybe L.A.? Let’s see)
Poème électronique in Judson Church
We have tested a multichannel rendering of our VEP application at the VRMMP. The new version will be premiered in New York, at The Drawing Center, on Jan 15 2010, for an exhibition dedicated to Iannis Xenakis. Some photos on flickr here
Our article dedicated to Virtual Electronic Poem is finally out in Computer Music Journal.
