      NoiseFold in collaboration with Trio KAZE present Zlatý Strom (The Golden Tree). The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration that brings together the live cinema and sound-art group, NoiseFold (USA) and acoustic instrumentalist, Trio KAZE (NL/DE), acclaimed musicians adept in medieval, renaissance, baroque and contemporary idioms. The Zlatý Strom performance seeks to illuminate a series of relational dialogues between diverse technologies, mediums and historical epochs by creating a visual-music hybrid that combines digital media, electronic music and interactive visualization technology with contemporary musical elements and instrumental techniques drawn from the 15th through 21st centuries. The music evokes a soundscape of elemental power wedded to a fluid abstract visual vocabulary emulating natural forces and bio-mimetic forms. Zlatý Strom is part of a larger work currently in progress that includes acoustic visualizations emulating fluid dynamics, virtual breathing vessels, crystallization of chaotic cellular structures, visual noise cloaking processes unlocked through performance of melodic decryption keys and other representations that evoke transformational (alchemical) metaphors. NoiseFold employ a custom audio-visual software system designed by the artists that generates or breeds a seemingly infinite array of virtual agents. These synthetic audio-visual forms result from the live mixing of a growing database of dynamic equations that are folded and recombined through a multi-threaded data feedback structure. The resulting sound is not a separate aural accompaniment but rather the direct sonification of the visual data itself. Thus the performers interact with autonomous visual forms to grow and sculpt the sonic content of the performance.

          26, 29 October, 1, 4 November Booking info at www.wexfordopera.com A behind the scenes look at the upcoming production of A Village Romeo and Juliet by Frederick Delius at the 61st Wexford Festival Opera with behind the scenes footage as well as interviews with Rory McDonald (Conductor), Stephen Medcalf (Director), Jessica Muirhead (Vreli), John Bellemer (Sali) and David Stout (The Dark Fiddler). Written between 1899 and 1901, A Village Romeo and Juliet was the fourth of Delius’s six operas and is generally regarded as his finest. Sali and Vreli, his Romeo and Juliet, have the misfortune to live in a small village community in Switzerland, the children of farmers who are at loggerheads over the ownership of a worthless piece of land that by rights should belong to a man known as the Dark Fiddler. Forbidden by their feuding fathers to marry each other, Sali and Vreli are forced to run away together. The Dark Fiddler tries to persuade them to join him and his friends and live together freely. They reject this lifestyle but their guilt at betraying their families leads them to choose a brief, glorious, moment of love, which culminates in their exultant acceptance of death. Delius’s passionate engagement with the story inspired him to compose rapturous, rhapsodic music that depicts the defencelessness and innocence of the lovers, their youthful idealism and the intense expression of their love. The opera includes the celebrated orchestral interlude, The Walk to the Paradise Garden.

            from Michael Scroggins / Added

            "Study No. 6" (1983, 4:36, NTSC analog video de-interlaced for Vimeo) is one of a series of absolute videographic compositions created via the multitracking of improvised real time performance with a standard broadcast video switcher. The intention was to explore the affect made possible through the architectonic structuring of the basic elements of color, shape, texture, and rhythm. David Stout was commissioned to create the musical track with a request that the music serve as accompaniment in order to assure that the visual would take the primary affective role rather than the opposite. David accomplished this task with great sensitivity, and in the end, the result was a perfectly balanced synergy.

                "Study No. 13" (1983, 0:33, NTSC analog video de-interlaced for Vimeo) is another in a series of absolute videographic compositions that were created via the multitracking of improvised real time performance with a standard broadcast video switcher. The intention was to explore the affect made possible through the architectonic structuring of the basic elements of color, shape, texture, and rhythm. David Stout's whimsical musical score and the high energy inherent in the full speed playback of the original video recording delighted Elfiede Fischinger --and made this brief piece one of her favorites in the improvisational study series.

                      This was my final performance in Intermedia Performance Art taught by David Stout at the UNT College of Music. My group consisted of Scott Martin MFA Dance candidate at TWU, Grant Phillips BM candidate at UNT College of Music, Peter Kusek BFA of New Media Candidate at UNT College of Visual Art and Design. In this performance we gathered video and audio source material and created an interactive environment where the user changed the parameters of the performance by using an iphone/ipod touch app called TouchOSC. The objective was to create an environment where the viewer becomes part of the performance. TouchOSC was used for user interaction. Isadora was used for visual mixing. PD (PureData) was used for aural processing. This was recorded using a Canon T2i with a 50mm 1.8 Canon Lens.
