Yeah, I know the pic doesn’t have anything to do with Ableton Live but it’s what I got. Anyways, I’ll be giving an introductory course on Live to the Sound Art class at the Plastic Arts School of Puerto Rico. Something along the lines of mapping a QWERTY keyboard to trigger samples and effects and then dismantling it to be used in unusual ways, installations and such. Also, the use of Ableton’s session view to create “non-linear narratives”, meaning that any given sound art piece will never play through from start to finish in exactly the same way… possibly.
Ida will be taking part in a collective exhibition which will be taking place at the MUAC (Museo de Arte de Caguas), the opening will be on January 28, 2011. The exhibition is a selection of the artists who were in residence for the SOLISTAS project @ ÁREA: Lugar de Proyectos. I’ll be there, and hopefully get an interview. If she’s no too famous.
…The Machinist Ensemble will be representing the collective with sonic contributions from Pachy, Danny, Joythief, and myself (ensemble veterans) and Hector “Stone Tape” Hernandez will be joining us so we can enjoy some electronic experimentation.
Pedro Hernandez (unrelated to Hector…that I know of) will be in charge of our visuals…
UPDATE: Photos HERE
We will have a presentation on the 23rd of October @ La Respuesta. This with be our first multi-medium event including Installations, Short Films and Music. It will be Free of Charge (gratis) but we will happily accept your generous donations. With lots and lots of effort we’ll have a great show where there’ll be plenty of goodies for everyone’s taste.
First i would like to thank Lenin Garcia, Marcos Pechio, Themis Garcia and Marcela Otero for making great artwork to promote this show…
