Calendar Event: March 29, 2014

Attack of the Wekinators & other Soulful Tunes from the Great Beyond is the fourth computer music seminar to be held in the Grim Planetarium of Kutztown University of PA, Kutztown, PA 19530.

It will take place from 6-9 PM on Saturday, March 29, 2014, and will feature Dr. Margaret Schedel from Stony Brook on processed cello. Meg will also present a talk.

The event is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC (this means you).

I'll take questions and post details (e.g., campus directions) as the event approaches. Kutztown lies smack dab in the middle of the Allentown-Reading PA electronic music corridor!

There is a Facebook event page here.

EDIT on Groundhog Day: Updated the poster.

This statement was tongue in cheek, Bill, Twisted Evil partly triggered by Jeremy Sawruk's statement on FB, " *Does double take* Kutztown? I'm so confused, but I'll go." Apparently he's forgotten that he emailed me last spring and we talked a bit.

I have heard of some e-m people in Reading, no venues to my knowledge. Confused

More details on the event to come over the next couple of weeks.

If that's the same person I met at the Deep Listening Conference at RPI a few months ago (which I am pretty sure it is), tell Meg Schedel I say hello--although she may not know who I am unless you show her my picture. I just attended and although we chatted a number of times, I don't think I ever introduced myself. She probably just thought of me some homeless man who happened to stumble into the conference.

That's very probably Meg.

We are all homeless people who stumble into the conference. Ohm...

Subject description: an outline of the title piece and event
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Here is a virtual instrument dataflow diagram for *Attack of the Wekinators*. Dr. Schedel will be composing additional pieces of music, perhaps to include an invited guest performer, that we will announce later. Margaret will also present a talk. The overall theme of the seminar is to encourage the participation of female students in conducting research into computer music and related graphics. In this piece Dr. Rebecca Fiebrink's Wekinator will extract gesture data from our playing and use it to drive graphics and spatial sound projection in the planetarium. The piece has four movements, Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, as inspired by the sonic envelope of a single note. I have started composing this piece and working on the software with students Nicole Cresse and Kên Rôhlfing. There is still lots of work to be done.

Looks like a wonderful event. If I were anywhere nearby, I'd wander off the street and give a listen. Hope you get a nice draw.

Subject description: 2-day festival in summer 2015?
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Here is a little something to ponder, Dr. Steve.

I am thinking of having a 2-day regional festival in the planetarium in summer 2015.

It would have to avoid conflicting with other regional electro-music festivals -- Asheville, Indianapolis, Kansas City.

It would have to fit the schedules of the visual artists who want to participate, the usual electro-music visual geniuses.

It would have to fit my conference / travel schedule.

Hopefully we could get cheap rooms in the dorms.

I guess the cat is out of the bag.

You could get someone to walk around and take still shots of the audience, feed them through an image filter that strips-to-transparent about half the internal pixels (the dark areas) along with the boundaries, then let the Wekinator classifications determine translation, rotation, scale, offset, rate of fade, all the usual stuff.

Just brainstorming ideas for the planetarium.

I updated the poster above to reflect the fact that (I am pretty sure) that Paul Prudence will be performing.

Also, the Kutztown University Percussion Ensemble will be playing an opening piece, probably with audio processing, and certainly with generated visualization.

I am not sure whether we will be streaming live, but we will record and play the event on radio.electro-music.com at some point soon after, if not during.

Subject description: ADSR Reference Design Part 1
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Back in the days of working for Bel Labs' DSP organization, we'd ship reference designs, which were basically toy designs that used the evaluation cards (DSP hardware), tools and libraries (software) that customers would use to figure out how to build a real thing. A reference design is a simple example design.

Here are recordings for the reference design for the four movements of Attack of the Wekinators, namely, Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release. The performance instrumentation and improvisation will sound substantially different. They will be the "real thing."

Here is the university's press release, along with an updated poster.
Quote:
KUTZTOWN, Pa., Mar. 7— Kutztown University will host a Computer Music Seminar, featuring a performance by Dr. Margaret Schedel, an assistant professor in the Department of Music at Stony Brook University, from 6 – 9 p.m., Saturday, March 29 in the Grim Planetarium.

Schedel, who is an accomplished composer and cellist, specializes in interactive media and is on the board of the International Computer Music Association. In addition to performing several processed cello pieces, Schedel will give a presentation on her involvement as a women in computing research.

The event will also feature a performance by KU student performer Nicole Cresse, who will co-compose one piece of music and perform on the electric violin with Schedel on the cello and Dr. Dale Parson, an associate professor of computer science at KU, on the electronic banjo. The music will be digitally processed to extend the sonic range of each stringed instrument.

All performances will feature video art projected onto the planetarium dome. Custom computer software written at KU will translate the live music into graphical visualization on the dome. The three musicians will literally be playing the planetarium as a musical-visual instrument. KU students will assist with the graphical visualization.
This event is free and open to the public.

This event is listed on the Galactic Travels events page:

If someone can get me a representative CD or CDR in time, I can play it on the air (both Galactic Travels [WDIY] and Thought Radio [WMUH]) for further promotion.

Thanks, Bill!

I'll see what I can do. "Representative" is funny Laughing because I have no idea. Our dream is that it will all come together the day before. It will. There is a lot of water that needs to flow under a bridge between now and March 29 Cool

Just a typical day of processing stringed instrumental music into graphics for a planetarium dome.

I posted some photos here.

More photos to follow later on FB, and some recordings to be posted here on electro-music. Signal levels are a little low, but I should be able to recover something listenable when I get time.

I tried posting today's 9 minute 15 second video I made using Margaret Schedel's March 29 recording of her piece Oppositional Surge on YouTube, but they processed it into such a poor state that I took it down and posted it here.
