Dear NoiseBridgers/NoiseHackers -

Supplemental to Johny's mail below, some of you may be interested in another event of the Outsound New Music Summit, an evening of computer music hackery called Vibration Hackers that I've the honor of curating in the festival, w special guests from computer music research centers CNMAT & CCRMA at Berkeley & Stanford.

Everybody will be doing digital synthesis with custom software instruments, with some video synthesis as well. 

Physical instrument hackers may find particularly interesting John Granzow of CCRMA, inventor of a customized mutant daxophone attachment fabrication system, whose output will also play a part in the evening.

On offer:

— Wild Twitter-driven son et lumière → #MAX  (Caitlin Denny, Nicole Ginelli, Dmitri Svistula (Димитрий Свистула))

— AI vs. AI musicbots & music grammars → Maxine & Maxxareddu, w keepers RitwikBanerji (ঋত্বিকব্যানার্জী) / Joe Lasqo + visual synthesis by Warren Stringer

— Exquisitely processed and spatialized depictions of madness and Russian Constructivist aesthetic theories → Fernando López-Lezcano & IlyaRostovtsev (ИльяРостовцев)

— Controller craziness which may include Wii-driven sound sculpture, digitized conch shells, advanced daxophonics, and who knows? w CCRMA Ensemble (Chris Chafe, John Granzow, Rob Hamilton)+ MYSTERY GUEST
