Sounding Philosophy

Leaded by Daniel Biro (University of Bergen) and Catherine Geunes (University of Stavanger), Sounding Philosophy is an interdisciplinary research project combining the fields of music, dance, visual arts, philosophy and science. The project integrates these fields, investigating how recent theories of emergence, reason and the mind can be approached from creative, metaphysical and scientific standpoints. The project integrate artistic research with the humanities and sciences into the study programs of the Grieg Academy and University of Stavanger, thereby seeking to strengthen collaboration and interaction between teachers, students and institutions as well as across disciplines and genres.

Versificator

The project “Versificator” is conceived as a metaphor for and a manner of bringing alive the original versificator, a fictional device created by George Orwell in the novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” (1949) whose primary purpose was to act as an automated generator for both literature and music: The core of the piece consists of a set of modular automated generators programmed in Max MSP, that generate text strings in the form of non-lexical words, sets of vowels and sets of consonants. The musical material is created by the utilization of computer-assisted compositional tools that analyze the generated text and map phonetic information into musical elements, such as pitches and durations. In the final stage of the system, text and music are merged and a full score is rendered, feasible of being performed by a vocal ensemble.
Azul 514

Based in Villa Mercedes, Argentina, Azul 514 is an experimental music group that proposes a new aesthetic, from a practice immersed in the Live Project. The core of the artistic proposal is the use of digital technology for the creation (synthesis) and real-time processing of sound, coupled with instrumental improvisation and chance. As a result of this interaction, unpredictable and unrepeatable musical and sound spaces are constructed in each session.
