[Articles]

THE COMPOSITION-INSTRUMENT: MUSICAL EMERGENCE AND INTERACTION by Nobert Herber Composer and sound artist Nobert Herber explores the question "What kinds of compositional technique can be used to create a music" in the field of computer games and interactive digital media where the line between "composition" and "instrument" is increasingly blurred.

LeWITT’S IDEAL CHILDREN by Domenico Quaranta "Software art is conceptual art's acknowledged son" is the hypothesis around which art critic and curator Domenico Quaranta builds his anyalisis on genealogy of software art: "Is the history of conceptual art relevant to the idea of software as art?"

DISSONANCE, SEX AND NOISE: (RE)BUILDING (HI)STORIES OF ELECTROACOUSTIC MUSIC by Miguel Álvarez Fernández Composer, musicologist and curator Miguel Álvarez Fernández deconstructs the reading of history of electroacoustic music through the concepts of dissonance and noise.

BEHIND TECHNOLOGY: SAMPLING, COPYLEFT, WIKIPEDIA AND TRANSFORMATION OF AUTHORSHIP AND CULTURE IN DIGITAL MEDIA by Sachiko Hayashi With sampling as starting point, artist Sachiko Hayashi relocates several issues relevant to the culture of digital media.*

OPENING UP PUBLIC SPACE by Art Clay By "using wearable computing technology within global ubiquitous networks as an art tool," sound artist Art Clay's new project "China Gate" opens up our civic space for "one of the most important functions of public performance: social interaction."

TIME AND REAL-TIME IN ONLINE ART by Ewa Wojtowicz "If there is a navigable cyberspace – does it imply navigable time as well?" New Media Art historian Ewa Wojtowicz examines net art practice that employs time from various perspectives.

NOW: Meetings in the Present Continuous


NOW is a working platform that will take place at the CCCB from 2006 to 2009. The project reflects on the present on the basis of the scientific, technological, artistic, social and spiritual transformations taking place at the start of the 21st century — because today it is no longer possible to explain art and culture without interiorizing scientific concepts and working with a systemic view of the world.

NOW is a process of research, creation and diffusion bringing together different local and international agents involved in promoting a change of paradigm in the information and knowledge society and in globalized cultures

THE TANK FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION CAMPAIGN


this a FWD from my email today...

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

as most of you know, the tank is a nonprofit performing arts space in lower manhattan. we believe in maintaining a space for artists in manhattan where they can perform and explore without feeling the financial pressures that manhattan increasingly brings.
We have been in our new home in Tribeca with Collective:Unconscious for almost a year now (!) and it is so nice to not be writing you all on a weekly basis telling you we are losing our home, like we had to do for the first few years of existence.
However, we are still struggling to get by in the big city. But we dont plan on staying that way! oh no.

To that end, we are proud to be launching our Freedom of Expression Campaign. The goal is to raise $100,000 over the next few months to help us secure our somewhat tenuous foothold on the big apple, increase and stabilize our administrative staff, and continue bringing you fantastic, affordable programming for the years to come.

SO HERES HOW IT WORKS
we have secured a few amazing patrons who are collectively willing to donate $65,000 IF (and yes, this here is THE RUB) IF we are able to get 1,000 additional individual donations. Thats right, if 1,000 of our friends, artists, and loved ones donate even $12 to the tank this year, then these donors will unlock the $65,000 they have pledged and we will reach our goal. they want to see that we are loved. can you show them we are loved? yes, you can!
PRETTY NEAT, YES? YES!

But 1000 people is a lot. ive only got like 14 myspace friends and that includes Tom, so thats just not gonna cut it.

so weve got a website. you can go there now and donate any amount of money, become a tank member, get some free stuff in exchange, and generally know youve done your part in securing the future of a place you care about.

YOU CAN EVEN SETUP A MONTHLY DONATION OF $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD.
WOULD YOU EVEN NOTICE AN EXTRA $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT EACH MONTH? NO, YOU WOULD PROBABLY NOT!

READY? Just do it right now while you're thinking about it. Think how good it will feel!! IT WILL FEEL GREAT!

http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

Thanks folks. and if the tank is a place you care about or has been good to you, please consider spreading the word and letting people know...stick it on your blog or your myspace page or whatever. Thanks Thanks Thanks!

Re: Re: thoughts on Appropriation versus Sampling


joy,
yes, i agree...
I really don't have a simple thought that doesn't involve appropriation or sampling on some level. your painting and the photograph involve both but are different resolutions. Refusing that doesn't have to be a generational thing, as in when you were born or what sort of music you have been exposed to. Being able to accept it may be a bent of mind that is reinforced from being creative with a computer though, i hope so, but unfortunately the person suing you hasn't been bitten by that yet.
