It’s dangerous, but playing live on that fragile human boundary between success and failure is an essential aspect to her process.

This is a Self Designed major that consists of studies in Theatre, Film, and Music. He enjoys designing soundscapes for theatre and film and he has many skills as far as theatre and film production. What he loves most is sound. Sound helps us interpret the world in a unique way with frequency, amplitude and time: he chooses to explore these realms. He is involved with electro acoustic composition as well as more traditional composition. He is currently working as Technical Director/ Resident Designer for Santa Fe Performing Arts.

First at Mac dowell Colony, then at Yaddo Colony and last at the Headlands center. The reflective look over an entire oeuvre became a mechanism that accelerated. At first it consisted of the Cageian gloss of playing entire works with other works, either simoultaneously on top of each other or sequentially in parts or sections. Then with digital network musics and the home computer came the text-radio works, creating new sound designs, playing them with old often ambient analog tape works. Finally the process became quite complex using simulation and photo-real aural sound soundscape in creating sonic atmospheres and doubles of all kinds. This De Chirico-like aping of former material has became quite developed and culminates in the Wave Fugue. [post_title] => Tears of Eros, (Torso Version B)/ Multiple [post_excerpt] => Rocco Di Pietro was born in Buffalo, New York in 1949. He studied composition and piano with Hans Hagen and Lukas Foss in Buffalo and at the Berkshire Music Center, Tanglewood. He studied in New York and Darmstadt with Bruno Maderna and was a freelance composer for twenty years before earning degrees from SUNY Buffalo and Vermont College. He became an interdisciplinary adjunct professor teaching in prisons and on many college campuses throughout New York, Ohio, and California. He toured California prisons as artist-in-residence and conducted four years of interviews in Chicago with Pierre Boulez. The resulting book, DIALOGUES WITH BOULEZ, was recently published by Scarecrow Press. He composed Prison Dirges I for the Kronos String Quartet. Di Pietro's music has been performed by many musicians in venues throughout the world. These include: Christiane Edinger, Christobal Halffter, Lukas Foss, Julius Eastman, Bruno Maderna, Frances Marie Uitti, Yvar Mikhasoff, Jan Williams, Anthony Miranda, Gunther Schuller, Dennis Russell Davies, the Buffalo Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, The Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra, CETA Orchestra, Ojai Ensemble Sonor, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Columbus Wind Orchestra, Earlham String Orchestra, the Avant Collective, and the Madd Lab Orchestra. Venues include: The Kitchen, La Mama, Bang On A Can Festival, in New York, Contemporary Music Society of Seoul, South Korea and American Academy in Rome among others. Recent performances of LOST have been featured at Dartmouth College and Stanford University. Recently, his work has developed on several fronts. Sound text radio works have developed simultaneously with his teaching at Columbus State College of electronic music and other courses in the Humanities. These works have been broadcast on radio stations in Seattle, Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, New York and in Europe, in Naples, Rome, Vienna, Prague, Budapest etc. [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => tears-of-eros-torso-version-b-multiple [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2014-09-25 12:34:27 [post_modified_gmt] => 2014-09-25 10:34:27 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://orangepixel.it/zerynthia/?post_type=sounds&p=2711 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => sounds [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [old_id] => 416 [post_it] => 10 ) [5] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2743 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2014-08-22 10:38:39 [post_date_gmt] => 2014-08-22 10:38:39 [post_content] => [post_title] => Dear Mr Ceiling [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => dear-mr-ceiling [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2014-09-25 12:34:30 [post_modified_gmt] => 2014-09-25 10:34:30 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://orangepixel.it/zerynthia/?post_type=sounds&p=2743 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => sounds [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [old_id] => 448 [post_it] => 10 ) [6] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2775 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2014-08-22 10:38:39 [post_date_gmt] => 2014-08-22 10:38:39 [post_content] => [post_title] => way out [post_excerpt] => Cd T.

Arch. 158.a.2,4,5; 183.59; 186.a [post_title] => London [post_excerpt] => Scanner - British artist Robin Rimbaud - traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways . From his early controversial work using found mobile phone conversations, through to his focus on trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis as the symbol of the place where hidden meanings and missed contacts emerge, his restless explorations of the experimental terrain have won him international admiration from amongst others, Bjork, Aphex Twin and Stockhausen. Scanner is committed to working with cutting edge practitioners and has collaborated with artists from every imaginable genre: musicians Bryan Ferry and Laurie Anderson, The Royal Ballet and Random Dance companies, composers Michael Nyman and Luc Ferrari, and artists Mike Kelley and Derek Jarman. As well as producing compositions and audio CDs, his diverse body of work includes soundtracks for films, performances, radio, and site-specific intermedia installations. He has performed and created works in many of the world's most prestigious spaces including SFMOMA USA, Hayward Gallery London, Pompidou Centre Paris, Kunsthalle Vienna, Bolshoi Theatre Moscow, Tate Modern London and the Royal Opera House London. Paul Farrington, AKA TONNE This prize-winning visual artist and designer has made visible the work of Scanner, Pole and Spring Heel Jack among others, linking sound with visuals that vary between elegantly simple lines to multiple layers of superimposed imagery. Tonne's interactive sound interfaces allow music to be produced as responses to the movement of graphics, and vice-versa. By manipulating sound utilities, Tonne builds toys, games, interactive environments and soundbanks. Developing and producing controlled systems for sound and image interaction, Tonne has performed live at Sonar (Barcelona 2000), FCMN (Montréal), Expanded Cinema (Milan), Lovebytes (Sheffield), and Steim (Amsterdam). Tonne was awarded Creative Review's Creative Futures Up-And-Coming Graphic Designer of 1999. Recently Tonne has been commissioned by the music label Meta to release recordings of his sound toys.
