  • Composing and Improvising with Real-time Systems Download Composing and Improvising with Real-time Systems to my desktop calendar

    November 4, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Original works by students of 2230. In probing the relationship between humans, interfaces, and sonic materials, this seminar asks: how useful are established notions of composition and improvisation in a contemporary ‘real-time’ age? What makes a good/expressive digital/electronic instrument? Should the design of these instruments follow the established blueprint of their acoustic and electromechanical counterparts, or should new technologies equate to new musics and new forms of musical expression? Although harnessing the intelligence of the human body through movement and touch can be highly productive, is the decipherability of human agency/presence always important? What is it that makes this agency/presence decipherable? And what are the alternatives? This concert will provide idiosyncratic answers to some of the above questions. Nicole Carroll, Alexander Supuise, Eric Handy, Kristin Hayter, Hyun Sik Kim Carl Romines To request special services, accommodations or assistance for this event, please contact Ashley Lundh [401.863.3234 - Ashley_Lundh@brown.edu] as far in advance of the event as possible.

The New York Times has described his work as “foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole”. His Harmony in Ultraviolet received critical acclaim, including being recognized by Pitchfork as a top recording of 2006. Radio Amor was also recognized as a key recording of 2003 by Wire magazine. His work has also included commissions for contemporary dance, sound-art installations, as well as various writings. He currently resides in Montreal.

  • “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance Download “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance to my desktop calendar

    November 14, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Mark Cetilia — “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance Schaulust is a study in light and sound: an investigation of structure and rupture, of rhythm and noise. Schaulust performances are sensorial exercises focused on developing an awareness of the conditions of observation. These events pair custom hardware and software designed specifically for use in real-time improvisation with stroboscopic light and robotically-controlled mirrors, resulting in a full-body experience that embraces the base pleasures afforded by the generation and manipulation of light and sound as physical objects, evolving over time from the hypnotic to the chaotic. BIO: Mark Cetilia is a sound / media artist positioned at the nexus of analogue and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design, and sound creation, Cetilia’s practice is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. For over a decade, he has worked to develop idiomatic performance systems utilizing custom hardware and software, manifesting in a rich tapestry of sound and image. Mark is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1 (with Laura Cetilia), the unpredictable cybernetic entity Titans of Jazz (with Luke Moldof), and the experimental media art group Redux (with Joe Cantrell). Cetilia’s work has been screened / installed at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London, UK), the Ben-Ari Museum of Contemporary Art (Bat Yam, IL), R.K. Projects (Providence, RI), the Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), and SoundWalk (Long Beach, CA). He has performed widely throughout the U.S. and abroad at venues including Café OTO (London, UK), the Borealis Festival (Bergen, NO), STEIM (Amsterdam, NL), the REDCAT Theater at Disney Hall (Los Angeles), Issue Project Room (Brooklyn, NY), Menza Pri Koritu (Ljubljana, SI), Uganda (Jerusalem, IL), the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, and Electronic Church (Berlin, DE). His sound works have been published by Radical Matters, Dragon's Eye Recordings, Iynges, Anarchymoon, Quiet Design, Interval, and the Estuary Ltd. imprint, which he runs together with his partner Laura Cetilia.
