In a phase space, every degree of freedom or parameter of the system is represented as an axis of a multidimensional space; ….For every possible state of the system, or allowed combination of values of the system’s parameters, a point is included in the multidimensional space…The system’s evolving state over time traces a path (a phase space trajectory for the system) through the high-dimensional space…As a whole, the phase diagram represents all that the system can be…A phase space may contain a great many dimensions.
This weekend in Paris.
One-off live techno performance collaborating with realtime video artist Sune Peterson. Venue is the classic and comfortable cinema Balzac on the Champs Elysee !
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
— opening stanza of Ode by Arthur O’Shaughnessy
merrickb asked: so what's the story with 137? :)
Legend has it that the Great Chicago Fire started at 137 DeKoven Street in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn.
All will be revealed at http://primes.utm.edu/curios/page.php?short=137Above all, what is missing from the world is a sense of what is in operation as the world. Even so, it can be stated without hesitation that each of us is involved (or ought to be involved) in an ongoing process of self-invention. If each person must invent herself further out of what she has at her disposal, we should at least have readily available a reference guide to all that a person can possibly rally to the cause of being a person. When I assign a meaning to something, I do it on the basis of what? In this, as in all instances, the questioner herself is the big question, the greater context. Being a person is an astounding event or series of events. Astounding in its variegated ordinariness. Does variegated ordinariness exist only always to dwindle away toward a dreary end? Why should the astounding series of events that is a person have to come to an end? But in regard to a whole person, what constitutes the whole of it? The body-person cannot be studied apart from her surroundings. What wields itself as the architectural body? To what extent do architectural surrounds guide behavior? Can architectural inflection of thought and feeling be calibrated precisely?

SGR^CAV review from Boomkat
**Edition of 150**
Stunning release from Cristian Vogel and SØS Gunver Ryberg as SGR^CAV for The Tapeworm. The label informs us that “Their compositions encourage the listener to observe and explore the resonances of a powerful musical awareness” and ‘Moved By Magnets’ exhibits a keen sense of spatial perception, tone and presence which entirely justifies that claim. Over four pieces they explore diffuse, free-formed spaces charged with a slow-moving, chaotic sort of energy ranging from the shuddering metallic resonance and bleak, streaking industrial tones of ‘Qzhyd’ to the modulating mass of globular bass shapes, location recordings and industrial ambient drones unfolding in ‘TrÆet’, thru the cacophonous emissions and darkside synth roil of ‘Ice Trolley 45’ on the A-side. B-side they expand on those themes with a 15 minute piece entitled ‘Unveil’ which shape-shifts from corrugated, rhythmic pulses into squally, discordant attack before opening out into widescreen sci-fi ambient drones. It’s the sort of release you should buy a tape player just to hear.
Happy New Year!
I am proud to kick off the year with a cassette release for The Tapeworm label.
Its a debut for a new composition project with Søs Gunver Ryberg called SGR^CAV
The tape is released today, limited to 150 copies.
« Interesting Fact! » ..this cassette comes 22 years after the first two I released on Si Begg’s tape label “D&C Sight And Sound” !
Kyma is a software language and dedicated hardware unit designed for generating sound and music in realtime. It was created in 1989 by Carla Scaletti and Kurt Hebel building on research they conducted at the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory of the University of Illinois in the late 80s.
The Kyma sound design language and its custom built hardware, was one of the earliest commercially available examples of a graphical signal flow language for real time digital audio signal processing.
Symbolic Sound, the small company of three employees they formed to develop, manufacture and market Kyma, is based in Champaign, Illinois.
As of 2013, the Kyma environment continues to develop and evolve with regular updates from Kurt and Carla and a small but dedicated community of users. It now runs on several generations of custom designed DSP hardware units. The latest hardware, the “Pacarana”, is a state-of-the-art parallel processing architecture dedicated to high quality computation of digital sound in realtime. Kyma can run across multiple Pacarana units, allowing for the possibility of creating a supercomputer for sound.
Kyma is being used in sound design for music, education, film, dance, speech and hearing research, computer games and many more fields of professional performance, artistic and academic research.
Some notable users of the Kyma system; Ben Burtt (sound designer of Wall-E, Star Wars) John-Paul Jones (Composer, formerly of Led Zeppelin) Bruno Liberda (Composer) Cristian Vogel (Composer, producer) Brian Transeau (Composer, producer) Steve Everett (Professor of Music, MARC Emory University).
Little by little hearing became my favourite sense; for just as it is the voice that reveals the inwardness which is incommensurable with the outer, so the ear is the instrument whereby that inwardness is grasped, hearing the sense by which it is appropriated.
— Søren Kierkegaard, preface to Either/Or
The default mode network is an interconnected brain system that preferentially activates when individuals engage in internal tasks such as daydreaming, envisioning the future, retrieving memories, and gauging others’ perspectives.
truagh asked: Hi Cristian , there was a "pay for" download of a gig you did in Germany about a year ago which I'm interested to buy. I think it was around 6 euro . If the link is still available could you send it to me? Are you accepting demo's for station137? regards, Marcus
Thanks for your interest.. maybe you mean these?
