io in real-time, interactive play.

from the archives: io + I met

Note from the editor (Han-earl Park): This piece by Franziska Schroeder was originally posted November 24, 2008 in response to the first testing session with Franziska. This testing session took place a year and a half before io 0.0.1 beta++’s public debut, and at this stage io was very much work in progress. On the […]

Downtown Music Gallery is back!

Downtown Music Gallery is back up and running after Hurricane Sandy, and they need your support. If io 0.0.1 beta++ could express a preference, I imagine it would state Downtown Music Gallery to be its favorite record store. io, however, cannot prefer, or express a preference for, anything… but you have my expression of preference! […]

I’ve updated the audio player used on this site, and I’m gradually migrating this site’s pages over to the new widget. You can find additional audio recordings (with new widget) on a couple of other pages. I’d be grateful if you could give these a play, and let me know if you have any problems, […]

site update: farewell music.calarts.edu/~hpark

As I’ve stated in more detail elsewhere, music.calarts.edu/~hpark, the original home of io 0.0.1 beta, has shut down. That shouldn’t affect the majority of visitors to this site, but some of the older media files stored on music.calarts.edu (linked via the archived io 0.0.1 beta site) have now been migrated to io001b.com.

SLAM Productions featured in The New York City Jazz Record

This month, The New York City Jazz Record puts a spotlight on the record label SLAM Productions. [NYC Jazz Record (PDF)…] [More…] If the musical automaton io 0.0.1 beta++ could feel gratitude, or express thanks, I imagine it would warmly thank George Haslam and his label for taking a gamble on a recording of real-time […]

Han-earl Park and Franziska Schroeder (Cork, 03–26–09)

Nothing directly to do with io 0.0.1 beta++ specifically (nor machine improvisation generally), however, this does feature the constructor and the on-stage colleague of io, and was recorded around the time of the Mach 26, 2009 development and testing process of the musical automaton. The complete recording of the March 26, 2009 performance by saxophonist, […]

Annea Lockwood: gritty complexity

I met Annea Lockwood at The Roulette in February which saw the performance of In Our Name. I had the pleasure of talking to her about technological transpositions and the secret lives of everyday (and not so everyday) artifacts. A few days later I posted her a copy of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531). A […]

Jazz Convention: l’avanguardia è tornata

“The avant-garde is back,” according to Romualdo Del Noce at Jazz Convention. In his review of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531), Han-earl Park improvises a “rugged plateau” and “hyperacid notes”, Franziska Schroeder enriches “the other half of the sax… with a naked and experimental voice, together in harmony and dissonance with parallel and converging streams […]

JazzWord: AI in an improv session

This one’s really interesting. Perhaps not the warmest review (in comparison to, say, those at MusicZoom, CloudsandClocks or Monsieur Délire), maybe not the fairest, but Ken Waxman’s take on ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) at JazzWord, in which the machine improviser is “unobtrusive and egoless” and “thoughtful pauses” signpost the authentic human, I think is […]

current state 2012: human actors

I’ll be posting an article dealing with an aspect of the technical and theoretical construction and operation of a interactive musical automaton in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here’s an update on what some of the (human) actors in the io 0.0.1 beta++ network have been up to, and will be doing in the […]
