Holy intersections! Cosmo freefalls towards other sonic nomads -- composers, performers, theoreticians, performance researchers, historians, ethnomusicologists, archivists from Matralab, MilieuX, CIRRMT, Hexagram, Concordia, McGill, and UQAM to engage two new works similar to and with Ensemble Supermusique, Quatuor Bozzini, and CLOrk (Concordia Laptop Orchestra.
Lead by Maestra Terri Hron, the collision occurs in two movements, an outcome of the performers lab.
Terri studied musicology and art history at the University of Alberta, recorder performance and contemporary music at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and electroacoustic composition at the Université de Montréal. She just finished a postdoctoral fellowship at Wesleyan University. She investigates collaborative practices in the creation of electroacoustic music and the changes in temporal and spatial perception that accompany performing alongside digital media. She has been the thankful recipient of a number of artist residencies (The Banff Centre, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, NoTAM, STEIM), awards (Musica Nova), grants (Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec) and scholarships (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Fonds de Recherche Société Culture du Québec).
For three days, the City of Ohm sets up base camp with international artists and scientists presenting their work in the fields of sound design, sound art, electro-acoustic music, and forward-looking audio technologies. The weekend includes lectures, hands-on workshops, and interactive panel discussions as well as cutting edge installations and performances at Germany’s most state-of-the-art media campus.
Sharks vs. Pilots. Calling all sonic explorers:
Visit the City of Ohm Basecamp daily. Pick up a sonic exploration kit (--or use your own) to map sonic fingerprints at Freezerburn by day. Other CEEM nomads may tether gear to Cosmo’s to intercept and co-mingle signals. See who the victor will be at the Freezerburn Movement Saturday.
The hippest outdoor music fest in the Columbia Valley, the Steamboat Mountain Music Festival advances the public’s appreciation of the arts by producing their annual music festival in Edgewater, British Columbia. Cosmo is set to join the Columbia Valley Makerspace as we work with young musicians in the City of Ohm and then perform the Steamboat Movement live at the Festival!
Cosmo heads deep into the heart of diplomacy, sound synthesis, signal processing, the end of nuclear testing, and birth of two new nations. Visit Cosmo daily at the Art Factory and participate in the City of Ohm Daegu Movement, creating Soundscape Heritage and Computer Music Heritage projects which will be logged at the New York University library.
The International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) is the preeminent annual gathering for computer music researchers and practitioners from around the world. Its unique interweaving of research paper presentations and concerts of new computer music, refereed by ICMA- approved international panels of experts, creates a vital synthesis of science, technology, and the art of music.
The Manitoba Electronic Music Exhibition (MEME) is the only annual event in Western Canada that highlights local and international electronic musicians at such a high profile and free public venue (The Cube). MEME is a festival that presents refined cutting edge electronic music performed using the latest in new creative technologies. MEME is a combination of 21st century artistic exploration and a collective celebration of human creativity expressed through a symbiotic relationship with technology. MEME is an experience that delivers a wide array of eclectic sonic soundscapes that are intellectually stimulating and also beckoning to the dancefloor. Cosmo will be collecting sonic fingerprints and composing the City of Ohm - MEME Movement live.
Space Ace to Base! Space Ace to Base! Calling all sonic explorers:
Visit the City of Ohm Basecamp 4pm-6pm daily. Pick up a sonic exploration kit (--or use your own) to map sonic fingerprints at Beakerhead as it unfolds. Other CEEM nomads may tether gear to Cosmo’s to intercept and co-mingle signals. Or, watch for Cosmo collecting sonic data at a variety of venues. Make sure to attend the performance Saturday
