Sofia Gubaidulina's "Seven Words" performed in Eurythmy



"Sofia Gubaidulina's "Seven Words" is a composition for cello, bayan, and strings based upon Christ's Seven Last Words on the Cross. This is a section of the composition performed in Eurythmy by the Goetheanum Stage Ensemble. For this beautiful film version, the camera work and editing were by Sam Russell with final production by Hagens Recording Studio. Note: this version presents the music and eurythmy of the original performance, without voice-over." source: http://youtu.be/fY8h_D2GQqI Youtube Embed "Sofia Gubaidulina's "Seven Words" is a composition for cello, bayan, and strings based upon Christ's Seven Last Words on the Cross.

Visual Music Aesthetics - Viewing Class in ATRL

December 17th 2011

I brought my Visual Music Aesthetics class to the ATRL in Trinity College, Dublin to view their final assignment work for the class in the wonderful equipped ATRL theatre (Thursday 15th December, 2011). 5 of the 6 students turned up and their work looked and sounded incredible on the big screen with booming sound. It was really great. As we were a small group, the students also showed their first assignment work and David got to play his live performance audiovisual piece (created with processing).

Urban Echo - Connected Public Spaces

This is a really interesting idea to project one city space into another city space through a physical object that looks like a sign post. An interesting interaction of the physical and the virtual in a public place.

Urban Echo from LUSTlab on Vimeo.


Information from Vimeo Page

"Now that we are familiar with being connected digitally, the physicality of our interactions becomes important again. The globalised communication systems we use everyday exist on a level above our tangible surroundings.

Urban Echo brings some of this communication back to real locations, connecting public places and therefore people, cities and cultures. It extends space beyond our once concrete parameters.

Webcams allow you to see into another space, mirrors allow you to see your own space. Using billboard screens and cameras, Urban Echo creates a hybrid of these two things, allowing not only see into another city but maybe see yourself transported into another city or culture. A mid point between transparency and reflection, introspection and extrospection.

 Placed in public areas, the screens have a variety of modes. Sometimes they create a recursive loop allowing interaction between people in multiple cities and sometimes they are just a window to another place, that might intrigue a passer by. They can connect regardless of distance, folding locations together and rearranging our perspective of public space."
