2015 Dublin Pd min-Con: performance+
Update: 170215 Dan Wilcox aka Robot Cowboy will presenting his new project Onward to Mars. Dan has also agreed to roll up his sleeves and give a PdParty workshop/demo
is happening – 26th + 27th June (with optional spill on the 28th?!) – at Dept. of Music, Trinity College Dublin. Keynote speaker is Pd'er/composer/perfomer Kerry Hagen from UL (Limerick). The theme is performance+ Contact me for info. etc. We'll be using this space as the official/unofficial dynamically updating online fast 'n' lite 'Con-hub'. Can we say middle of April for proposals, though no worthy projects will be turned away (hence the spill day!). In other words, if you're crazy busy approaching the deadline, then it's OK to submit a bit late.
Here's a little 60-second miniature called Dr Bohlen's Fantasy. It uses the Bohlen-Pierce scale and a variety of timbres which range in harmonicity. The piece explores the dissonance space between harmonicity and inharmonicity by using shifting partials driven by physical modeling processes. The B-P tunings, the voices and the musical events are created in Pure Data and exported to a mixer for final production.
