    • Funny Patterns


      from Frank N Added

      Funny Patterns is a short documentary about the London Improvisers Orchestra. It was shot in one day in 2004. This was meant as a teaser and the final plan was to produce a feature film length documentary. But so far it did not fit the schedule ... Maybe some day. Originally shot on SD. For presenting on Vimeo I upscaled it in Studio Artist into 720p.

            Silfra, the first collaboration between Hilary Hahn and Hauschka, will be released in May 2012 by Deutsche Grammophon. Silfra is the culmination of a two-year exploratory improvisation project by Grammy Award-winning American violinist Hilary Hahn and prepared-piano master and innovator Volker Bertelmann (Hauschka). The music on this ambitious and free-spirited collection is a tribute to the Silfra rift in Iceland, an otherworldly landscape that inspired the two musicians to create a body of work that is evocative, hypnotic and truly breathtaking.

            • The Whalefish


              from Johannes Bergmark Added 1,194 12 1

              The Whalefish was my most used instrument up to around 2005, and occasionally afterwards. It is a sort of one-man-band with many functions, and very flexible. It can be played sitting (usually), standing or walking, because it is totally connected to the body: around the neck theres a thong to which two piano strings attach to the soundboard. From the soundboard there are two wooden legs connected with a foot piece. The movements of the instruments are thus directly connected to the neck, foot and lap. Apart from playing the strings, there are a number of objects to be played on the sound board (amplified with a contact microphone). For example, there are: telephone bells, 7 piano strings, an almond grinder, a toy music box, a fire alarm bell, a door bell, wooden rods, a spring, protruding pieces of piano wire, a butter ball maker, hacksaw blades, an older instrument called the Hedgehog with a wooden tongue and rods and an egg slicer. On the rear side of the Whalefish there are an African mbira, another egg slicer and parts of a coffee grinder. On the rear side, the contact microphone is glued on to the sound board. The resonator plate comes from an old piano. To go with it, a great number of tools are used, usually put in a special order in a violin case. For example: a cigarette lighter, coffee stirrers, nail files, playing cards, piano tuning pins, screws, miniature saw, table duster, rubber bands, steel brush, plastic forks, knives and spoons, cake cutters, shell, tooth brush, combs, onion holder, cone, holder for mock-flowers, back scratcher, piano hammers, (for saw playing), hoof scraper (?), ice strainer, barbecue sticks, food sticks, straw, saw blades, necklace, teat, toy guitar, toy horse, onion saw, feathers, nut grater, screwdriver and bows. Filmed at Fylkingen, Stockholm. More pictures, sounds and info at http://bergmark.org/whalefish

              • Christian Carrière - Residency Improv


                from Christian Carrière Added 481 10 3

                I did a sound art residency at a wonderful place called OBORO in Montreal in 2011. My goal was to develop a way of playing Arvo Pärt's 1977 string quartet piece 'Fratres', using only audio console feedback. This short piece shows some of the process during the residency. What you hear is an improvised jam I played on the console while exploring the tones and rhythms that were possible on such an instrument.

Mon objectif était de développer une technique pour jouer 'Fratres', d'Arvo Pärt, à partir de 'larsens' d'une console audio. Aucune source sonore externe est utilisée. On appelle cette technique 'no-input'. Cette vidéo démontre un peu le processus durant la phase résidence du projet. Ce que vous entendez est une pièce improvisée que j'ai jouée en explorant la gamme de sons possibles avec la console.

Frank O'Connor and I played three sets of improvised music, which accompanied the Mere Phantoms' interactive shadow installation at McCord Museum. It was a wonderful night...
