Sun, 13 May 2012 11:28:40 -0400

L’Allègre Léo a mis au lait
L’ange intègre au lit laid.

Mais un aigre nègre
change le mélange
Lait et eau
et met l’angelet
Haut

Mark Oliveiro: In Maluga (2009) — 00:08:59

Sun, 13 May 2012 11:28:40 -0400

(image) In Australian art and literature, a prevalent binary opposition emerges from works classic and contemporary, a dichotomy that permeates reality as much as fiction. In Maluga, a spatial fixed media work for five channels, explores notions of bush VS city. Often poets, artists and musicians explore the pervasive nature of the city as it etches away the beauty of an ancient omnipotent bushscape. Sometimes the soft and docile manmade city-limits are tested by the harsh reality of an unforgiving desolate wilderness. Maluga (the subject) is a resurrected traditional mangrove, a reborn spit of bush in the middle of Sydney’s suburbia, a fantasy of a lost living forest in historical Australia. Surrounded by the urbanized cacophony driven by business and industry, In Maluga presents a juxtaposition between a living serene bushland and a bustling city. The bird calls of Australian natives and the clang of a mechanized modern piano are two central samples that represent the bush VS city idiom. The audience is transported to and from a ‘happy place’, a gentle collage of nature’s orchestra and the ‘foreign’ harsh crack of industrial noise. Synthesized and manipulated sounds represent both calamity and tranquility as the listener is thrown between these opposing settings, common in a contemporary human habitat. This work is set in five channels, mixed in protocols with sounds manipulated using RTCmix.

Jay Bundy Johnson: Dusk (2010) — 00:05:30

Sun, 13 May 2012 11:28:40 -0400

(image) Soundscapes often reference place with the notion of time acting in direct relationship to duration. In the case of Dusk, the sonics suggest a specific moment in time (as a bird has its night call).

Natalie Cringle: The Collapse of Empires (2010) — 00:05:55

Sun, 13 May 2012 11:28:40 -0400

(image) Throughout history man has built elaborate empires to control people, nature, and materials. Empires have ruled by raping and pillaging the lands of others. The word in itself, “empire,” has a somewhat dark connotation to it. As empires grow, like any living entity, they follow the cycle of life. This piece tells the story of a great collapse and the aftermath of a land rebuilding itself. The sharp, jarring, harsh, and awkward sounds represent the overspill of power within the empire, that it no longer has control, and is decaying rapidly. Through all deaths there are births, a regeneration of the land. The warm sounding, thick, luscious, organic sounds symbolize the matter piecing itself together again. Perhaps one could draw an analogy between the struggles and the dualities within one’s mind and the struggles within the rise and fall of a seemingly omnipotent force. Both face a massive transformation: from dark to light, from death to birth, from terror to freedom. Through the collapse of any empire there is a birth of a new way of life.
