Wiki: “Luigi Russolo (30 April 1883 – 4 February 1947) was an ItalianFuturist painter and composer, and the author of the manifesto The Art of Noises (1913). He is often regarded as one of the first noise music experimental composers with his performances of noise music concerts in 1913–14 and then again after World War I, notably in Paris in 1921.
I especially like this great MIDI tool/reference patch
National Science Foundation CCLI Grant
Linking Science, Art, and Practice Through Digital Sound
This project’s objective is to develop curricular material that explains the science and mathematics of digital sound in a way that makes their relationship to applications clear, using examples from theatre, movies, and music production. This is a collaborative project among computer science, education, and digital sound design professors at a liberal arts university and a performing arts conservatory.
The intention is to engage students’ interest in science by linking it more tightly to practice, including artistic applications. The vision is to draw more students to the study of computer science by means of its exciting connections with art and digital media.
I decided to try a little experiment. As many already know, Supercollider is a very powerful audio language. I am not a programmer so I tend to seek out ready to run software as opposed to downloading the builds and making it custom to my needs. I found this great little, ready to run, Supercollider application called Laconicism. I ran the audio output from Laconicism through a Vox Satchurator distortion pedal and a Digitech TimeBender Delay. I recorded the distorted and delayed output into Live, made a MP3 and posted it here. It’s really a little long but shows what can be done with only two guitar effects boxes.
