The picture above is a display of the parameters used by the Haskins SineWave Synthesizer (SWS) in experiments that study the temporal aspects of speech. The horizontal axis shows time in milliseconds; the vertical axis shows frequency in Hz. The pattern is a graph of frequency and amplitude variations of three sinusoids. Height in the plane indicates frequency; the thickness of each tracing indicates amplitude. The properties of tonal analogs of speech vary over time. Accordingly, the tones rise and fall in frequency and amplitude in imitation of the frequency and amplitude variations of vocal resonances over the course of an utterance. Note ...

EL: soo first in terms of editing, mix of the track any thoughts? Me: I just listened through again and was wondering about the order of the question sets EL: ok Me: like what if we move the first question set to after the talking set?

Since the Autumn of 2012 we have been attempting to connect a variety of musical and conceptual work in which we feel strongly exists in, points towards, or employs an area that could be described as the liminal. We both feel that this is not something so easily defined, does not have to do with a particular kind of work, nor is a particular thing or perceptual understanding. Yet at the same time we feel that in some music or ideas this area becomes quite important- actually vital to the total experience- even if it is not to be directly ...

The Musical Condition of Reasonable Conspiracy is a discussion-performance from the “discussion in a room” series I’ve been developing since 2011. My phone interview with the Australian composer Chris Mann discussing ‘composer’s conspiracy’ is transcribed into a script and reenacted by two performers while a group of Rome-based composers intervene throughout the conversation. Here, “discussion” means something simultaneously organized and performed by re-enactors, speakers, listeners and beholders, all of whom become conspirators in a shared unfolding process. Re-enactors: Michael Fitzpatrick, Gaby Ford (The English Theatre of Rome) Interlocutors: Fabio Cifariello Ciardi, Daniele Del Monaco, Matteo Nasini & Fabio Rizzi • Chris Mann, composer ...
Twice a year since 2011, The Serving Library has assembled a set of individual ”bulletins” on a common theme, made PDFs available to download for free at www.servinglibrary.org, and simultaneously published them in print as Bulletins of The Serving Library. Last fall we started to turn on a yearly cycle instead, uploading the new batch of files throughout September, and releasing a half-as-frequent-and-twice-as-big print edition in collaboration with Amsterdam-based Roma Publications. This year’s Annual is guest-edited by Italian novelist and translator Vincenzo Latronico and explores how *translation* is fast becoming a significant site for the negotiation of identities and power dynamics ...
