Audible Women on Ears Have Ears

Posted by on 7:17 pm in radio | 0 comments

Ears have Ears is a most excellent radio program on Sydney’s FBi run by two most excellent audible women Brooke Olsen & Scarlett di Maio (who are still to submit entries!).

They’ve invited me to put together a mix reflecting Audible Women and so I’ve selected works by 5 women who’s music I either didn’t know or got to know a bit better through this project: Eves, Terrine, Nat Grant, Alma Laprida and Jannah Quill.

It will play sometime after 9pm (Sydney time), July 23 and can be streamed or listened to on demand.

They also have an excellent archive of experimental music, often commissioned  for the program so check it out!

GESTURE – THE SOUND COLLECTORS

Posted by on 2:23 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

GESTURE – THE SOUND COLLECTORS

Presented by Tura New Music and PICA as part of Tura New Music’s 2015 Scale Variable Series.

Gesture is a collection of works for two percussionists that examine physicality and gesture in the context of contemporary percussion music. A diverse and surprising array of sounds ranging from drums and gongs to AM radios and sheets of metal and paper is explored using movement inspired by conducting patterns, drawing methods and spatialised instrumentation. Gesture will include premieres of three new works composed for The Sound Collectors by Australian composers Rob Davidson, Cat Hope and Lindsay Vickery, alongside works by Holly Harrison, Thierry de Mey and Mark Applebaum.

The Sound Collectors are Louise Devenish (WA) and Leah Scholes (VIC). Formed in 2012 to create a platform to explore a shared interest in percussion theatre, The Sound Collectors delight in music that explores the use of text, gesture and human physicality with percussion. These explorations have resulted in a collaboration with Melbourne fashion designer New Model Beauty Queen, residencies at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts and commissions from international composers including Mark Applebaum, Cat Hope, Lachlan Skipworth, Michael Askill, Elise Reitze and Robert Davidson. The Sound Collectors are champions of Australian music, and every performance features new works by local colleagues.

Mishearings – Jo Burzynska

Posted by on 8:05 pm in exhibitions | 0 comments

Mishearings
Jo Burzynska
 4 – 28 June 2015

The Auricle, Christchurch, New Zealand

“The ear subtly and actively connives to make what it takes to be sense out of what it hears, by lifting signals clear from noise, or recoding noise as signal… Perhaps, in this sense, all hearing is mishearing, and a kind of deterrence of sound.” Steven Connor, Earslips: Of Mishearings and Mondegreens

In Mishearings sounds are often not as they seem. In Jo Burzynska’s multisensory exhibition of sound-based installations employing auditory illusions, what is heard is manipulated or interacts with other sensory stimuli in a way that alters or intensifies the listener’s perceptions.

Jo Burzynska draws both on her own studies on the intersections between sound and taste, and current psychological research into crossmodal correspondences, which highlight the powerful influence the senses can have over each other. All the works in Mishearings harness multiple sense modalities to create experiences that function on sensorial, emotional and conceptual levels.

In Hearing Lips and Seeing Voices Burzynska presents an audio-visual poem that can be perceived in three ways that offer up very different meanings. This uses the “McGurk Effect”, an illusion that occurs when the auditory component of one word is paired with the visual component of another, leading the viewer to perceive a third different word.

Bittersweet is a work for 8 speakers and chocolate. Using field recordings made in Irpinia, Italy, the soundscape cycles between the low drones of modern equipment in the region’s wineries and the high pitched, traditional bells of dairy cows in its mountains. The fluctuations between pitch change the perception of the chocolate’s taste from bitter to sweet.

The brain’s ability to construct meaning through noise is harnessed in Poetry as I need it, an exploration of sound, silence, form and time using John Cage’s Lecture on Nothing. And all the senses entwine in Carbonic oscillation, a chamber offering a multisensory experience of effervescence, which participants are encouraged to experience with a glass of sparkling wine.

Burzynska will also be hosting a series of multisensory events over the month of the exhi-bition:

Thursday 4 June (6pm) – Opening event: featuring Carbonic Oscillation in the bar
Saturday 13 June – Oenosthesia III: artist talk and live sound and wine performance
Sunday 14 June – Wine and music matching workshop at the New Zealand Boutique Wine Festival, Auckland
Friday 19 June – Wine and music matching workshop
Saturday 27 June – Sensation: a multisensory dining experience: collaboration between Burzynska, chef, Alex Davies (Shop Eight) and visual artist, Toshi Endo

Jo Burzynska – who also records and performs under the name Stanier Black-Five – is a Lyttelton-based sound artist and wine writer whose work in these areas has increasingly converged in the production of multisensory art. Regularly combining sound and taste, her installations and performances are largely created from her own environmental recordings. She is also wine editor and columnist for the New Zealand Herald’s Viva magazine, and author of Wine Class: All you need to know about wine in New Zealand (Random House).

Pretty Gritty is a bimonthly home for ambient electronica and other poorly named genres
that play with noise, shattered melodies and broken beats—a little bit sweet, and a little bit noisy,
beats allowed but not compulsory.

Pretty Gritty is produced by Gail Priest
