Interview: Adam Nash
http://turbulence.org/networked_music_review/2007/12/13/interview-adam-nash/

Adam Nash is a new media artist, composer, programmer, performer and writer.
He works primarily in networked real-time 3D spaces, exploring them as live
audiovisual performance spaces. His sound/composition and performance
background strongly informs his approach to creating works for virtual
environments, embracing sound, time and the user as elements equal in
importance to vision…

Net_Music_Weekly: John Lifton's "Green Music"

n-lifton/

Over the course of four days in June 1976, while open to the public, six
large plants in the center of the glass Plant Conservatory in San
Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, produced an audible, live digital music
score, based on bio-electric sensing of their responses to light,
temperature, movement and other physio-environmental factors (using gold
needle electrodes at the base of the stem and root). Amid the ‘tropical
garden’ stood a five foot high rack of audio and digital processing
systems, including the just purchased, Altair 8800, which John was
constantly (re)programming in Machine Language…

To Our Users


Many of you may not realize that we are a tiny, not-for-profit organization.
Helen and I spend much of our time raising funds from government and private
foundations to commission networked art. Our mission is to support both
emerging and established artists.

There are very few resources for new media/networked art in the United
States, which makes the process highly competitive. When we succeed, we are
only entitled to use a very small percentage of the grants for server
maintenance and administrative overhead, which translates into inadequate
salaries for ourselves and our system administrator.

Our passion for the field has fueled our commitment for many years, but we
can no longer sustain Turbulence, Networked Performance and Networked Music
Review without your help. We hope you value them enough to help us keep them
alive.

Please go to Turbulence (http://turbulence.org) and make a donation now.

Sincerely,
Jo and Helen

now is the time to give something back.

We cannot continue without your help. We MUST raise $25,000 by December 31,

WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED IN 2007

In addition to an exceptional year of supporting artists through
commissions, public events, and our world-renowned resource,
Networked_Performance, we started a second blog called
Networked_Music_Review (NMR). On it you will find in-depth interviews with
sonic artists and musicians; world-wide events highlighted in real time; a
"Weekly" post spotlighting interesting works, artists and conversations; a
monthly newsletter which summarizes each month's activities; and much more.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN 2008

On November 15, NMR began launching fifteen commissioned works, several of
which will premiere live at "Programmable Media II: Networked_Music," a
2-day symposium at Pace University, New York City in April 2008.

In addition to launching 20 new commissioned works, other upcoming
highlights include "Mixed Realities," an exhibition and symposium at Emerson
College, winter 2008; and "Re(Connecting) the Adamses," a major exhibition
co-presented with Greylock Arts (Adams, Massachusetts) and MCLA Gallery 51
(North Adams, Massachusetts), summer 2008.

Networked Music Review Commission: "ItSpace" by Peter Traub


November 15, 2007
Networked_Music_Review Commission: "ItSpace" by Peter Traub
http://turbulence.org/Works/itspace

"ItSpace" creates a network of pages within the social networking site
MySpace. Instead of people, the pages feature everyday household objects
from the artist's house. Each page has a photo of the object, a description,
and most importantly, a 1-minute piece composed of samples of the object
being struck, resonated, and so forth. All the pages, or objects, are
'friends' with each other, so that visitors who discover one object may jump
to the others to see their profiles and hear their sounds. Visitors to the
site are invited to create new "ItSpace" pages with pieces made from their
own household objects and link those in as 'friends' of the original set.

"ItSpace" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for
Networked_Music_Review. It was made possible with funding from the New York
State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney General at
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

BIOGRAPHY

Peter Traub is a 4th year Ph.D. student in Composition and Computer
Technologies at the University of Virginia. He received his Master's in
Electro-Acoustic Music Composition from Dartmouth College in 1999. After
that, Peter moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he worked as a
software engineer for five years. While gambling his daytime employment on
internet startups, he spent nights composing at Stanford's CCRMA (Center for
Computer Research in Music and Acoustics). His music and internet-based
sound art works have been played and exhibited internationally. His
interests at UV include music that utilizes computer networks, virtual and
real spaces, multi-channel composition, and the exploration of alternative
and open-source software systems for composition.
