    Winner of the YouTube Play Guggenheim Biennial Festival. Soundtrack available here: http://tinyurl.com/7xj6net Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating. I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper. Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds). Also check my live presentation of Birds on the Wires at TEDx São Paulo: http://www.tedxsaopaulo.com.br/jarbas-agnelli/ Music made with Logic. Video made with After Effects.

            So glad to be able to share this! We, and by we I mean http://isthis.gd, built a MIDI orchestra for Grey London and Brother from old computer junk. Photocopiers, scanners, fax machines, printers, hard drives, modems and the like. We thought it'd be most fun to do it for real. We were really inspired by Tristram Cary, James Houston, BD594 and other radical tinkerers. Making cold stuff warm is fun. We found loads of old machines destined for landfill, took them to bits and reverse engineered them to make noises that we could control via MIDI. Badman Will Cohen made an arrangement of Bob Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changin' but the orchestra can play any MIDI arrangement, or indeed be performed live. Maximum respect to Neil Mendoza, Marek Bereza, Will Cohen, Stefan Dzisiewski-Smith, Justin Pentecost, Mike Harrison, Mat Holloway, Jason Oakley and all at Partizan, Liat Wassershtrom, Ben Joffe, Tim Leask, Jack Ellis, Ozzie Pullin. Awesome cinematography by Denzil Armour-Brown and Daniel Lowe. Tight edit by Ross Hallard. Post and psychotherapy by Sheldon Gardner and www.time-based-arts.com

              Arranged like a symphony orchestra, approximately 200 antique vacuums, mixers and washers are transformed into musical instruments. They form an ensemble that the conductor, harpsichordist and composer Michael Petermann, alias weiserrausch.de, has now completed after eight years of preparation: The Stupid Orchestra. watch the making of stupid orchestra: http://www.vimeo.com/28190836 more informationen: www.weisserrausch.de former presentations: spring 2011 Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg summer 2011 Technische Sammlungen Dresden May 2012 at the 7th blurred edges Festival für aktuelle Musik: www.blurrededges.de more Videos on: www.whitetube.de find whitetube on www.facebook.com/whitetube subscribe to www.vimeo.com/​channels/​whitetube photography and editing by Karsten Wiesel

                  Created by Simon de Diesbach, Jonas Lacôte, Laura Perrenoud Thanks to Andreas Gysin and Shiverland Productions ECAL / University of Art and Design, Lausanne Switzerland Bachelor Media & Interaction Design Computer Orchestra is a crowdsourcing platform that allows users to create and conduct their own orchestra. They can choose to upload their own music or download samples to integrate into their formation. With a simple interface, they assign the chosen samples to each post. They can also arrange detection zones, that allow them to order the "musicians" to play, using various gestures. Once their orchestra is configured, they can direct it with the movements of their body. Have a look at the full project and our new interactive studio: www.computer-orchestra.com www.fragment.in

                    www.brunolevy.com http://www.katesimko.com/ facebook.com/katesimkomusic Crystals is an audio-visual collaboration utilizing live orchestra between multi-disciplinary artist Bruno Levy and DJ/composer Kate Simko. Using stop motion photography, Bruno Levy captured various types of crystals growing under a microscope. As the evaporation process occurred, a wide variety of patterns and shapes were formed, creating an organic, yet otherworldly landscape. The compiled images are reminiscent of space and the creation of matter; as the video progresses the geometry of the crystals becomes increasingly complex. Shimmering floating particles transform into glowing geometric shapes that develop into complex galactic formations, taking us on a journey of growth and evolution. Kate Simko's score meshes modern classical music with deep electronics and sound design. Highlighting the rhythmic nature of the evolution of crystals and matter, the music takes us on a short journey that combines the beauty of nature and live instruments with technology and interactive art. Crystals premiered as a live audio-visual performance in April 2013 at the Britten Theatre of the Royal College of Music in London. Alongside an orchestral ensemble of twenty musicians, Simko performed electronics while Levy triggered live visual effects using MIDI and audio analysis of the orchestra. All orchestral instruments in Crystals were recorded live and combined with the electronic music elements. video:: bruno levy music:: kate simko Conducted by Pierre O'Reilly Instrumental players: Claire Wickes - Flute/Piccolo Lydia Griffiths - Oboe Adrian Somogyi - Clarinet Isaac McCullough - Bassoon Damon Oliver - Alto Sax David Scott - Trumpet Anny Drysdale - Horn Jonny Hollick - Trombone Catrin Meek - Harp Marie Schreer - Violin Nadine Galea - Violin Louisa Tatlow - Viola Mikela Gronberg - Cello Enric Boixados Gomex - Bass
