We are very proud to announce the release of
Ethernet Orchestra – a radio feature by Mirko Heinemann

This is a 2 hours radio piece. It presents live recordings of five concerts done by Ethernet Orchestra during the past 18 months. The band members give background informations and personal reports about the idea and the experience playing in networked improvisations.

With this collection it is possible for the first time to get an overview over the creative exchange and to listen to the wide range of beautiful and exciting music of this extraordinary musical project.

blackhole-factory is happy about the possibility to produce this piece in collaboration with Mirko Heinemann, a great journalist, who did reports on our work already in other situations.

Thanks to DEGEM radio for hosting the show in their series Sounds only, streaming it 2 times a day in Dezember 2011 and Januar 2012

prototyping new machine: the Scan Table

Photo: blackhole-factory

We are prototyping a new machine. The Scan Table is a computer controlled ‘turntable’ equipped with a Fire-I cam + a USB-microscope. A stepper motor is controlled by a max patch using an arduino board and a stepper driver to scan small objects. The images are live processed by a jitter patch and projected. The same objects are also used to create live processed sound by a max/msp patch. All three patches (for motor control, video and sound are exchanging control data and influencing each other creating an unstable situation.

The first public usage of this beast will be in the project ‘Die Situation ist unter Kontrolle’ at Kunstmühle this weekend Nov 4 + 5.

Some video from the machine at work will follow soon.

Kunstmuehle Live Mic @ Locustream SoundMap

The live stream of the Kunstmühle sound environment is now part of the Locustream SoundMap | Live Worldwide Open Microphones of locusonus.org.

Locus Sonus is a research group specialized in audio art. It is organized as a post graduate lab by the Art Schools of Aix en Provence (ESAA) and Bourges (ENSA) in France.

In the moment the Locustream is only possible in mono. Our Safari browser here doesn’t like to stream it, but Firefox does!
Furthermore we are still streaming in stereo over http://s10.myradiostream.com/31230.htm, although the server stops every now and then.

Our microphone now has a windshield build from a colander and silk stocking:
