Thesis: The field of sound is the site and the means of the Militant Sound Investigation. Regardless whether analogue or digital, the record gives object form to an undifferentiated field of sound. Through both magnetic particles and binary code, experience enters into the record and becomes available to be repeated and analyzed. What initially sounded like undifferentiated registers acquires through repetition and analysis a different texture of audibility. It is as if need, demand, desire have been rendered concrete. Militant Sound Investigation, simply put, derives from a practice of listening that intervenes upon the presumed fidelity of the audio recording. ...

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.

OOR Saloon & Killjoys invited four musical and per- formative positions to collaborate in a collective sound performance. The performance-session took place at the publication-launch of Sabian Baumann, Karin Michalski: An Unhappy Archive at the Gallery Mark Müller in Zurich… An Unhappy Evening followed the invitation of the publication to create shared spaces for bad queer feelings and offered an experimental, performative listening-setting, which allowed failures, differences, pauses and interruptions to take place. An Unhappy Evening wanted to find out, how we can listen closely to each other and interact with one another through sonic and performative practices, but without erasing ...

Articulação sees avant-garde electronic musician Florian Hecker continuing the collaborative work he began with author/philosopher Reza Negarestani on the 2012 album Chimerization. The album’s three lengthy pieces see different manipulations and the electronic processing of human voices reading texts by Negarestani that explore themes of nature and the culture man creates around it, interrupted and often side-lined by Hecker’s blasts of digital noise and skittering, computer-generated mayhem. Opening track “Hinge” features two stereo-panned readings by noted poet and sound artist Joan La Barbara, known for her groundbreaking work with the human voice as instrument. A second, much noisier track breaks ...

We unexpectedly came across a map of pre-sand Egypt, a pre-historic time when Egypt was green. This had to be about 7,500 B.C. or earlier. Where the desert meets the sea, the sea loses some of its distinctiveness: a beautiful green lake, a sky blue [bleu célèste]. We enter into it all together, together for the first time in the history of humanity. After the storm is over we will tell you the whole story. What we can tell you is that in _____ there’s a dimensional jump hole. Ever noticed the green parakeets flying around Rome?

“Bifurcating a Resounding No!” compounds a variety of prepared acoustic situations, computer synthesis and 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) and 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 ...

Ms. Mrs. BC. AC. and Millennials babies. The darker color of the rice, the richer the nutrients. Fermenting is how it’s been soaked in the water. Submerge me. Dissolve me. Identity will be dissolved in the jar. Don’t label me yet, until the amount of alcohol is fatal. The liquidity of rice is ready to flow over the continents. Where have you been, mom? You may have had a rough upbringing, but you made it this far. Mama, I tried on dresses you gave me for parties, but it didn’t suit me well…

Yasunao Tone (Tokyo, 1935) is a Japanese interdisciplinary artist. He graduated from Chiba Japanese National University in 1957, majoring in Japanese literature. He became active in the Fluxus movement in the 1960s and moved to the United States in 1972. He organised and participated in many experimental music and performance groups such as Group Ongaku, Hi-Red Center and Team Random (the first computer art group in Japan). His unconventional musical work brings together certain forms of traditional Eastern culture and post-structuralist theories, and since the mid to late nineties has become a notable influence on new generations of sound artists ...
