The 6 Things Everyone Should Know About Facilitating With Acoustics

I recently read an article on Buffer about how music affects and benefits the brain, I have used some of their insights here and shared my thoughts about how music and acoustics can be used to support collaborative work. Our perception of ‘neutral’ is effected by music When a group meets each other for the first time there are lots of factors that affect how that group will work together for the day one of those is mood. Mood can have a profound impact on relationships within a group, the reasons for a negative mood are almost limitless, bad traffic, an argument, poor weather, having to do other work before arriving. This same negativity will effect their first impression of others they meet, for potentially the first time. By playing positive music upon arrival we can attempt to mitigate the risk that mood can put on an event.

The electronic musician has been experimenting with a new sound system that uses several omnidirectional speakers and special software to deliver audio in a more immersive, interactive way. Tisziji Muñoz: Music. Mobile. Mobile. “Tape It Off The Air” – Blank Reel Tape Manufacturer Teaches you How to Pirate Music!

From a recent Reel-to-Reel Conversion we did, this promotional insert was shilling subscriptions to an early Ziff-Davis publication by the name of Hifi & Music Review.

It also had detailed instructions on how to jack music from the radio, before integrated stereo systems were common. Alas, there is no page 5… hence, the soft sell. Listen to Bitcoin. Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris - Robots & Electronic Brains - eclectic music zine. Strange sounds (6/1/06) The new book by Mark Brend is pretty clear about its focus: Strange Sounds.

Robots & Electronic Brains - eclectic music zine

The subtitle is less succinct, but more exact: Offbeat Instruments and Sonic Experiments in Pop. If you've ever scanned the back of a Radiohead record sleeve and wondered what the hell an Ondes Martenot was or yearned to know just who created the puppetophonic soundtracks to the Gerry Anderson TV shows or puzzled over exactly what a washboard and jug had got to do with pop music or tried to hum the break from Wild Thing on a kazoo or marvelled over those super-sparse early hip hop drum breaks, this is the book for you.

My Only Mentor, Butch Morris (1947-2013)

Photo by Keri Pickett, courtesy Wayne Horvitz I met Butch Morris shortly after moving to New York City in 1979. I am not sure how or when, but he was extremely gracious to me, became a lifelong friend, and I can honestly say he is the only single human being who I think of as a mentor. It wasn’t about music in any technical sense, but really more in a social sense: How music fit into his life, how he created community, what he cared about, what he didn’t care about, and so on.

The fact that Butch was fun, charming, a great person to travel with, to dine and drink with, and to hang with is something everyone who knew Butch can speak to. When I arrived in New York, the city and the Lower East Side, in particular, was a diverse community. James Kibbie - Bach Organ Works - Download.

The Just Intonation Toolkit is a resource that allows musicians to hear and play intervals other those found in equal temperament tuning system.

Just Intonation Toolkit

Various existing systems of just intonation can be selected and then played either with the computer keyboard, a MIDI keyboard, or from an external application. The intervals can be played as zither sounds, organ sounds, piano sounds, or sine tones. You can also specify your own intervals and save the resulting intonation system as a preset. There are several tuning systems built in: La Monte Young's Well Tuned Piano (1973 tuning) Harry Partch's 43 tone system Harry Partch's proposed 4 string instrument for the comparison of equal temperament with various systems of just intonation Intervals from the 5-limit tonality diamond Greek Mixolydian Scales The tetrachord tunings of Archytas, Eratosthenes and Didymos Greek Mixolydian Scales Ling Lun's pentatonic and 12-note systems.

Alternating Currents: An Interview With Mika Vainio

Einheit, or as half of experimental techno innovators Pan Sonic, are immediately recognisable thanks to their unswervingly tight focus. Vainio coolly resists the trappings of constantly escalating music technologies, the better to closely examine the properties of his modest arsenal of tone generators and grooveboxes.

Yet his output somehow manages to span the entire history of electronic music, reaching right back to its avant-garde roots in 50s academia, travelling through the post-punk transgressions of industrial music and stepping confidently across techno dancefloors to arrive at a 21st century interzone.

La Monte Young. La Monte Young is a composer, musician, and Artistic Director of the MELA Foundation.

He serves as artistic director of MELA along with the visual artist Marian Zazeela , with whom he is a major collaborator on many projects including the Dream House Sound and Light Environment . He is a disciple of Pandit Pran Nath , and teaches Kirana gharana at MELA's Kirana Center for Indian Classical Music . He lives in New York City. Biographical Information From the official MELA Foundation website: La Monte Young has pioneered the concept of extended time durations in contemporary music for over 50 years.

Ligeti: Aventures - Boulez: Ensemble InterContemporain. Textura. Theatres of Eternal Music Say the word drone and, depending on your conversation partner, any number of possible responses might emerge: an entomologist's exegesis on the male honeybee's mating practices, the military expert's account of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, perhaps a musicologist's analysis of the drone-like features of the bagpipe, bluegrass banjo, and didgeridoo.


Within electronic music circles, the word might elicit historical anecdotes populated by dramatis personae like La Monte Young and Terry Riley, plus nostalgic recollections colored by strobe-lit chanters and tambura players. Far from being an esoteric phenomenon of the ‘60s, recent works by Greg Davis, Deathprod, Robert Henke, Minit, and Growing suggest that the drone is still very much alive and, if anything, thriving. Theatre.pdf. ML210304.pdf. Terry Riley - Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band: All Night Flight (SUNY Buffalo, New York, 22 March 1968) (Organ of Corti/Elision Fields CD) Time for some revisionism!

Terry Riley - Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band: All Night Flight (SUNY Buffalo, New York, 22 March 1968) (Organ of Corti/Elision Fields CD)

Can't say I understand too well why this disc was reissued last year...but I think I've got it straight now. "Poppy Nogood" was originally available on Terry Riley's "A Rainbow in Curved Air" disc in 1990, then issued as a standalone on the Organ of Corti's Terry Riley archive series in 1996 (which eventually went out of print) and now finally repressed here by Elision Fields (with new packaging although for an Elision Fields issue it displays the words "The Organ of Corti Archive Series" across the front pretty prominently) despite the fact that it's still available on Sony's "Rainbow" CD.

So why would anybody buy this one by itself and not just "Rainbow" where you actually get the seminal "Rainbow" piece alongside "Poppy"? Terry Riley - Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight Vol.1. The Listening Machine. Exclusive Clip: See Raymond Scott's Fantastical Vintage Music Machines. You’ve heard Raymond Scott’s music before, even if you may not realize it. The prolific composer’s musical DNA has been indelibly intertwined with American cartoons, films and popular music since the 1930s. It’s embedded in episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show, The Simpsons, Animaniacs, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck; his music has been sampled by Madlib, Gorillaz, TV on the Radio, Soul Coughing and many more. Scott also designed fantastical music-making machines, beginning in the late 1940s, that helped lay the groundwork for electronic music as we know it now.

The composer and inventor, who died in 1994, is the subject of a recent documentary, Deconstructing Dad. Ken Ueno: composer. Museum of Endangered Sounds. A = 432 Hz and the OM (136.1 Hz, C#) edition of sonic fabric. Sometime during the mid-1990's I read in a book about yoga that the mantra OM is considered in Buddhist and Hindu traditions to be the primordial tone of the universe, a vibration which forms the basis of all things. As a musician and scientist, this sounded like an esoteric analog to the "Grand Unification Theory" being sought by quantum physicists.

I decided in that moment that the existence of a fundamentally unifying vibration was something that I could believe in more strongly than most anything else. Shortly thereafter, I had the Sanskrit OM symbol tattooed onto the back of my neck as a permanent reminder. After all these years and lots more research, the idea of a primordial tone still intrigues me, and in fact inspires much of my work – especially sonic fabric. Redirecting. Harmonic Interference Theory. Harmonic Interference Theory is a set of thirty-four principles that explain music perception using the underlying physics of a harmonic standing wave. Based on a mathematical balance between maximum resonance and damping geometries in geodesic space, perceptual qualities in music can be modeled simply and organically using a “reflective interference function" between the harmonic and Fibonacci series. This is then used to explain how musical timbre and harmony are pattern matched recursively as cymatic patterns in the ear and brain.

While this theory deals specifically with the question of music perception, the same universal principles can be applied to explain other natural phenomena. This includes how star systems form, how matter self-organizes into living carbon-water crystals and how self-awareness emerges from physiological resonance. Archaeoacoustics. MALTA: 1902 A construction worker unexpectedly broke through the bottom of a household cistern.

A dark man-made cavity lay below. Descending over stone barriers into shadows, he found underground rooms opening up before him -- three stories of sculpted man-sized burrow suggesting some fantasy realm of Mother Earth. Columns and windows defining and tantalizing, spaces cut out of the stone as if it were soft cheese. With all that breathtaking visual weirdness, the odd echo of his footsteps may have gone unnoticed at first. Filters, Oscillators & Envelopes 1967-75, Don Preston, Music Vinyl LP - Barnes & Noble.
