Rec. Play. - new sound series at Eyebeam

image by Alex Tyson

I'm very excited to see the Rec. Play. sound series happening at Eyebeam. I wanted to write a bit more about it before our next Sound Research group meeting to provide some context. 

Sound Research Summit

Sound Research Summit Participants
David Reeder & Mike Clemow – OSC hub
(David:) I've built a Java based server which functions as an OSC hub, effectively any-to-any or multicast.  Though I interface via SuperCollider, I have also built Max interfaces: a single mxj object for OSCSend or OSCReceive. They have proven to be plug-n-play in a hasty, production environment. I am happy to make any of these freely available.  My library is a wrapper around Sciss' Java OSC implementation.

Alan Sondheim: just some thoughts occasioned by the walk

I was thinking about common threads - always a misrecognition - in relation to the sites we visited. What occurred to me was the relationship between capital and the body, between capital and materiality. The bollards, etc. are objects whose existence is only to deflect or stop other objects; as such, their internal structures are based on resistance. One might think of them as asteroids. What are they protecting? The simulacra of capital, capital flows.
