We hope that you can join us for two Rhizome-sponsored events at the New Museum tonight and tomorrow. Details below.




Rhizome Commissions 2010

Each year, Rhizome awards grants to eleven emerging artists for the creation of original works of new media art. Established in 2001, the Rhizome Commissions Program has awarded sixty-four grants throughout its history to projects that have gone on to have a great impact in the field of contemporary art. At this event, select artists from the most recent commissioning round will present and discuss their works in progress.

Participating artists: Maria Carmen del Montoya and Kevin Patton, Kristin Lucas, Joe McKay and Angelo Plessas

Cinema Fury: A New Performance by Caden Manson / Big Art Group

Rhizome presents Cinema Fury, an action-media performance created by Caden Manson / Big Art Group. Organized by Nick Hallett, Cinema Fury will be an immersive installation and a participatory performance that is designed to bring the audience into the action.

In Cinema Fury, Big Art Group will explore the idea of corruption in the information age, and the chaotic possibilities that arise through errors, glitches, and interruptions within digital transmissions. By reinterpreting models of data transmission and decomposition as performance strategies, Cinema Fury opens new interpretive pathways to understanding the process of contemporary “media-ization.” Concepts of transmogrification, both of the folkloric and post-digital varieties, recur throughout. Big Art Group will draw on material from two upcoming major productions: Flesh Tone (2010) and No Show (2011).

Friday January 15th, 7pm
at the New Museum, New York, NY
$10 Members/ $12 General Public

Remember Rhizome's reBlog? From 2006-2008, a geographically dispersed team of volunteer editors would reblog posts to the front page using software developed by Eyebeam's R&D; Lab. We phased it out in 2008, but in case you were interested, all our previous reBlog posts are now available for browsing.

A Week of Electronic Music Documentaries

(6)

808-thumb-500x289.jpg

We here at Rhizome have been busy assembling an entire week's worth of documentaries about the history of electronic music. We've tried to keep the subject matter diverse -- with documentaries covering the technology behind the music to the emergence of a number of different genres, from krautrock to jungle. We hope you enjoy the selection. If you would like to submit your recommendations, feel free to use the comments section to make additions or you can email suggestions to tips [at] rhizome.org. Please keep in mind that the videos must be available online in their entirety and, ideally, embeddable.

Incredible Sonovox - Kay Kyser - 1940 film

(0)


Amazing device that gives voice to musical instruments. The Sonovox consists of one or two louspeakers placed on the throat that play the source sound. The performer whispers the words while the speakers stand in for the voice box. Used for the talking train in Disney's Dumbo, uncountable radio promos, a tube-in-the-mouth version "Talk Box" was used by Frampton to make his guitar sing, and all-electronic "Vocoder" versions are still used in current pop music.
