What you are hearing right now, if you’re at 1:48 of my recording, which I did via my iPhone’s “Voice Memos” function, is me typing the words you’re currently reading. I’m in Bobst Library, which is New York University’s library. I’m in a computer lab with 24 Apple computers. I’ve probably been in this computer lab 2000+ times. Besides me, there are 6 people in here. I haven’t counted the number of computers or estimated the amount of days I’ve beeninhere—that I can remember at the moment—until today, and I’ve been using this computer lab for something like the past ...

Hello young traveller, how are you feeling this day? Are you well rested? No? Well, that’s quite alright because I have something to help with that, if you are interested of course. It’ll help you feel well rested, it’ll help you get to sleep, it might even help you feel a few tingles in your head and your back. So all you have to do is listen. You don’t even have to keep your eyes open. All you have to do is listen to the sound of my voice as I chant to you and over you and rid your ...

“Bifurcating a Resounding No!” compounds a variety of prepared acoustic situations, computer synthesis & field recordings developed in the software bidule. It strives to create a multidimensional listening experience both subtle & engaging. It is intended for listening in quiet environments through headphones or monitors with little distraction. The photograph is a book (The Queen’s Gambit), a bookmark (acid) & one of Ingmar Bergman’s favorite quotes “We come into this world with sealed orders”. All of this is inspired by smothered mate (chess) which is a checkmate delivered by a knight in which the mated king is unable to move because ...

Boids is an artificial life program, developed by Craig Reynolds in 1986, which simulates the flocking behaviour of birds.The name “boid” corresponds to a shortened version of “bird-oid object”, which refers to a bird-like object. Taking the position of the bird-like object, how does other creatures sound like? The limitation of labelling computer generated species after preexisting ones complicates our relation to the former. Digitally sythesized -oids lost in the deep sea, later found and played back in 2x speed. A group of dead -oids scattered along the timeline. It’s our choice to hear an -oid.

RHSM is a crystallization of MSHR’s live performance- an electronic ceremony that glides through four movements. Each movement acts as a virtual scape, defined by a distinct system for improvisation between the players and their handmade analog electronic instruments. MSHR’s pathway through the possibility matrix of each scape was mapped to an 8-track tape machine and digitized multiple times per track. These tracks were interwoven to create the iridescent effect of tape phasing as a compositional element, augmenting the psycho-acoustic content of the original improvisation. Scape 1: Unfolding Hyper-Shape Alap This track was recorded live in an electronics array in our bedroom ...

“yoooooowhatuhoe” was developed on a tour of the American West Coast in February 2015. The macro form of the piece was predetermined with special attention paid to temporal ratio between sections, while the material filling out the different sections was generated by procedures ranging from retyping the content of a G-Chat conversation on the Computer MIDI Keyboard to capture the typing habits of the composer and thereby generating pitch and rhythmic data, to using weighted random processes to build dense stacks of pitches. The sound sources used in the piece are the following: General MIDI (10. Glockenspiel; 38. Slap Bass 2; 54. Voice Oohs; ...

On February 26, 2015, Robin Mackay travelled to Graz, to speak at the show-johnmccracken/text/) at Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien. In the talk Mackay attempted to draw some brief comparisons between the sound work of Hecker and the analyses of colour proposed by Éric Alliez in his book on modern painting, The Brain-Eye, which he had spent the previous year translating. Apart from extensive works on the rail line which made travel both ways extremely taxing, the most notable thing about the episode was the impressive cathedral-like echo in the grand hall of the Künstlerhaus. Hecker requested a recording ...

From the moment that you insert the token and the gaming session starts up, the player suddenly has multiple lives. During these games, you can win additional “life” elements, which accumulate as little icons around the edges of the screen. This function creates a positive reinforcement in the player; they have the possibility to fail many times without the game finishing. Professor Pier Luigi Cappucci, in a paragraph of his book “Il corpo tecnologico” descibes to us this phenomenom: Man has always created “virtual” constructs, learning to distance himself from the physical and direct experience of the phenomenal world. (…) mediating ...

It is a volcanic eruption that grounds all flights; it finds water on Mars; it is a commitment to the future. There is no barren soil: We are lions.

My puffy morning face cushions the small indented buttons that are my eyes, like those of an old pink armchair and remain this way until the introduction of coffee restores and dilates them. I’m standing half-dressed in a T- shirt like some obscene cartoon character, all cold feet on the tiles wishing I had put my dressing gown on before going to the kitchen or that I even owned a pair of slippers. Each day is full of choice and choice should not lead to repetition, but even choices once seemingly easy become hard. Indecision mounts to higher levels that cascade ...
