Jeck of all fades

Philip Jeck‘s Suite is a vinyl release which is comprised of various edits and mixes captured from recordings of various live concerts of his. This method of composition is also how he compiles his CDs – reworking and adding new elements where he thinks they should fit. With a mixture of vinyl crackle, old recordings of melodramatic strings, and a panoply of noisy textures all filtered through electronic flecks of grainy quadruplications, you’re transported to some fractionalized cosmic radio broadcast that still retains a near seamless coherence of a logical compositional strategy. Philip Jeck speaks about his work followed by a question and answer session. Also, I’m including an audio recording of his performance in Linz done on the following evening. The LP, Suite: Live in Liverpool, is available from Touch.

FacePunch [Schnitt Fit]

By breaking the constraints and ridiculous social rules put upon Facebook members while cleverly critiquing the invasive data mining that those of us who aren’t members abhor, Paolo Cirio and Alessandro Ludovico have created Face to Facebook – the third in their Hacking Monopolism Trilogy. What started as an art-site statement based on a social experiment – retrieving a million “personal” profiles, filtering them using face-recogniton software and then posting them as members of a dating website – soon became a performance activity of just a few days in length. The flood of reactions from unwitting (debatable to some extent) accomplices coupled with over a thousand instances of media coverage suddenly thrust the two of them into a legal fight in which they decided to remove the Lovely Faces dating website, but still keep the F to F site. Following some basic photos I took of the installation and at the Forum, you can watch a video of just one media-based reaction followed by a presentation and an excerpt from the Interactive Art panel discussion that they gave on their award-winning project. Also, check out Alessandro’s publication Neural for a great read.

Rod Stasick is a composer in the broad sense of the term. He is interested in the creation of event-systems for various situations. Template scores are often created using a combination of graphic signs and symbols that usually suggests a syncretism of styles and methods of performance. Using these methods, he produces works in diverse disciplines (audio, video, text, mail art, conceptualism, etc.) utilizing assorted influences: Eastern Philosophy, Fluxus, The Situationist International, Oulipo, Semiotics, Discrete Event-Systems, random numbers to revamp Zen planning and forms of Information Theory.
