This presentation includes a lecture, “Body as Instrument” and a performance of three short pieces for muscle-music interface, Le Loup, Lifting, and Myogram.
 
The presentation will be held at EMS on Thursday 24 May at 19.00-20.30.

Body as instrument
The talk considers the human body as musical instrument. To do so, we look at the use of physiological signals, notably the electromyogram, as a way to capture the gestural intention and effort of the performer. The use of biomedical technologies as computer interfaces, however, do not automatically comprise a musical instrument. To imagine a system that affords expressive musical performance, we will think about the notion of the “instrument”, and contrast it with concepts of the “tool” predominant in our technoculture.
 
Le Loup Lifting Myogram
In the performance the instrument captures electromyogram (EMG) signals reflecting muscle tension. The system renders as musical instrument the performer’s own body, allowing him to articulate sound through concentrated gesture. The sources are natural and synthetic sounds, and sounds of the body.
In Le Loup, howling wolves are stretched and sculpted. In Lifting whistling oscillators modulated. In Myogram, a direct sonification of muscle cell action potentials is heard as a stochastic pulse train reflecting limb activity and feed resonators and filters. The work is the result of the MetaGesture Music project, which was supported by the European Research Council (FP7-283771). 

Atau Tanaka's first inspirations came upon meeting John Cage during his Norton Lectures and would go to on re-create Cage’s Variations VII with Matt Wand and :zoviet*france:. In the 90’s he formed Sensorband with Zbigniew Karkowski and Edwin van der Heide. His work has been presented at Ars Electronica, SFMOMA, Eyebeam, V2, NTT-ICC, and ZKM. He has worked at IRCAM, Artistic Co-Director of STEIM Amsterdam, and researcher at Sony Computer Science Laboratory (CSL).  He is Professor of Media Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London.

tocante phashi 2 ctrlmodWe are excited about having Peter Blasser as a mentor for our next workshop that will take place at EMS on 18th of November. We think we don’t have to introduce Peter much because he is a legend already. For those who do not know, he is the one behind Ciat Lonbarde instruments (http://www.ciat-lonbarde.net/)
 
In this workshop, Peter will guide us in building one of his invented instruments called Tocante (http://www.synthmall.com/tocante/index.html).
It is solar powered touch and breathe controlled instrument which we just love. After building our instruments we will solar charge them for the jam session that will follow directly after.
 
Price for the workshop is set to 3200 SEK including VAT (Moms) - Instrument is included in the price. Workshop is limited to 12 participants so make sure you book your place as soon as possible. Please send an email to to reserve your spot and instrument or if you have any question.
Payment will be needed to be made in advance. No prior soldering experience needed.
 
Welcome!
 
 

Welcome to this free C3IC Workshop with Gabriel Prokofiev (UK) and Etienne Abelin (CH)

When: Sat Nov 11, 12-2 pm
Where: Elektronmusiktudion (EMS), Söder Mälarstrand 61.

NB: The number of participants in the workshop is limited. Drop a mail to Ragnar Berthling
at Musikcentrum Öst () and await confirmation and instructions of preparation. We will provide ”fika”.

The past years we’ve seen vibrant initiatives in the scene of contemporary classical music. New venues, new concert forms and
brave musical experiments has attracted new audiences and merged club formats seamlessly with classical music and DJ sets. Composer,
DJ and musician Gabriel Prokofiev has been running his club format Indie Classical in London for some years, creating a whole new plattform
and together with the conductor, festival arranger and musical activist Etienne Abelin from Zürich, C3IC and Sound of Stockholm offers
a unique workshop for curios and creative minds in the classical and contemporary music scene.

What is C3IC?
A Pan-European collaboration between Piranha Arts, Tallinn Music Week, Sound of Stockholm, Cross-linx and Indie-Classical, supported
by national funds and the European Union’s Creative Europe fund. Four artists (U:&Ekke, Hauschka, In Code and there are no more four seasons)
perform and make new musical collaborations at the aforementioned festivals. Meetings, talks, workshops and development of the
Indie Classical Network are also a vital part of the project.

The workshop is organised by Musikcentrum Öst/SEKT in collaboration with EMS, Sound of Stockholm and C3IC- project.

Bygg din egen två panelers Serge Paperface modulsynt! Detta är en bra rivstart för att komma igång med avancerat syntbyggande.
Workshopen är uppdelad i två delar; vi börjar med en introduktion till projektet, planering och vilka delar och verktyg som behövs.
Sen går vi hem och löder och ses igen 6-8 veckor senare då vi hjälps åt att felsöka, göra klart, trimma och sätta ihop alltihop!

Kit finns till försäljning på introduktionsträffen.
Ni kan läsa mer om moduler och se komponentlista med mera på www.73-75.com
 
Dag 1, Tisdag 7:e november på EMS, Söder Mälarstrand 61, kl 18.00-20.00
Vi startar workshopen med en två timmars genomgång av projektet och en titt på delar och halvfärdiga/färdiga enheter.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
 
A presentation of acoustic & electroacoustic music of Ákos Nagy,
where he reveals his composing techniques and guides us among his different psychoacoustic experiments.
 
Àkos´s art is synthetic and shows a synthesizing tendency which is built from the Netherlandish polyphone tradition. He examined Gothic and late Renaissance music, traces of which show up in his later music along with elements of Transsylvanian, Indian, Khmer, Balinese and Japenese classical culture.
 
He is researching the rhythm and tone systems outside Europe. He turns towards exploring new forms and structures, filling them with his characteristic take on melody which usually origins from non-tempered (just intonation) systems. His music juxtaposes solid blocks of sound that keep reprising accumulatively - a method he branded 'layering technique'.

His music is influenced by the I-II World War avant-garde, the American experimental, the early psychedelic music, many European and outside Europe folk music and former arts.
 
In his pieces, he shows a penchent for mathematical series, textures arranged after priciples of variation which are substantiated with polyrhythmic, polytempoed, polymetric patterns of melody and rhythm.
 
During the course of the presentation the composer not only speaks about his pieces but also performs them.

Tonsättaren Folke Rabe har gått bort. Han studerade vid Kungl Musikhögskolan i Stockholm 1957-64 för bland andra Valdemar Söderholm, Bo Wallner, Karl-Birger Blomdahl, Ingvar Lidholm, György Ligeti och Witold Lutoslawski.

Inom den moderna konstmusiken var Rabe en företrädare för improvisationsmusik och grafisk notation. Senare utgjorde musik för mässingsblåsinstrument en markant del i hans verklista. Han har också komponerat uppmärksammade körmusikverk, bland dessa kan nämnas "Pièce" och "Rondes", samt elektroakustisk musik -bland annat stycket "Va?? Was?? What??" inspelat i den gamla "Klangverkstaden" på EMS i Sveriges Radios historiska lokaler på Kungsgatan 8.

Som jazzmusiker spelade Folke Rabe med bland andra Arne Domnérus storband och Harry Arnolds radioband. Han valdes in som medlem i Föreningen svenska tonsättare 1965. Under åren 1968-80 var han programdirektör på Rikskonserter och ansvarig för uppbyggnaden av "Elektronmusikslådan", vars viktigaste komponent var den Serge synthesizer som idag finns i Studio 6 på Elektronmusikstudion.

1980-2000 arbetade han som bl a musikproducent på Sveriges Radio. Folke Rabe blev 81 år. 

12th September 17:00–20:00, Elektronmusikstudion EMS. The lecture is free and held in English.

How can class, race, gender and sexuality be expressed through sound technologies? This question has motivated and transformed Yvette Janine Jackson’s
creative practice and research.

In this talk Yvette will explore how electroacoustic music can be used to express identity outlining the history and development of this practice based research
and presenting excerpts of her fixed media pieces.
 
Yvette Janine Jackson is a composer of electroacoustic, chamber, and orchestral musics for concert, theatre, and installation blending various forms into her
own aesthetic of narrative soundscape composition, radio opera, and improvisation. Her works often draw from history to examine relevant social issues.
 
This lecture is a collaboration between Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (SADA) and EMS as part of the independent course Feminist Perspectives in Sonic Arts.
