The Invisible Bell Tower – Open Air [ca Montreal]

2009-08-03_15-52-26-k.jpgThe Invisible Bell Tower – Open air by Hans Tutschku :: Eglise du Gesù Church, 1202 de Bleury Street, Montréal, Québec.

The first Bell Tower is a general installation for people on the street. In the north tower of the Eglise du Gesù church, loudspeakers will diffuse the sound of the bell chimes every hour. Installing an invisible bell tower where there usually is none arouses the curiosity of the people walking by on two levels. First, they notice “bells” that they have never heard before. And, a few days later, they discover that there are not only « new bells » but also a plethora of sounds from far-away cultures.

At all times, bells have been used at special occasions (religious holidays, fire, mourning, …). Bells are part of the special soundscape of cities and expressions of their diverse cultures. This installation presents recordings of a wide range of different cultures that have been captured all around the world. The installation outside the church aims at creating a bridge to other places, including all the questions connected to the encounter with foreign lands and the unfamiliar. Continue reading

Live Stage: Lionel Marchetti [us Chicago]

lionel-marchetti-2.jpgLionel Marchetti :: June 5, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Graham Foundation, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place, Chicago. IL.

Hard (difficile) to believe, but it’s been 9 years since Lampo enjoyed the pleasure of Lionel’s company. We missed him and so too have the nice people at Alcala’s. He created spectacular music during his 2002 visit, and then left town with an equally spectacular cobra belt—but that’s a story for another blurb. At long last he returns, and only in part for the Western wear.

Here, he’ll present an epic two-hour musique concrète performance, an “interpretation with spatialization,” layering nature recordings, spoken text, pop songs and ethnic music through eight loudspeakers distributed around the room. Once on site, Marchetti will study the acoustics of the space and select appropriate works from his 20-year body of work. Continue reading

Live Stage: Spectrum [us Brooklyn, NY]

diapason.jpgSPECTRUM: multi-channel sound and video installations by DRAW :: June 6, 13, 20 and 27; 2:00 – 8:00 p.m. :: at Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Floor, Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

“A sound spectrum is a representation of a sound…in terms of the amount of vibration at each individual frequency. It is usually presented as a graph of either power or pressure as a function of frequency.

SPECTRUM is a sound and image sculpture utilizing multiple (number to be determined) audio and video channels across both of Diapason’s exhibition spaces. The process at the core of SPECTRUM is the visualization of sound through spectrographic analysis, which breaks up a complex wave into its constituent parts and displays them on a 2 or 3 dimensional grid. These analyses and their corresponding sounds form the basis for several complex, layered compositions. Continue reading

He will present the research he has been doing over the last three years during his research fellowship at the National Academy of the Arts in Bergen (KHIB). HC Gilje writes regularly on these matters on his blog ‘Conversations with Spaces’. Continue reading
