current state 2015: human actors

Finger-crossed, some interesting news ahead re. machine musicians (and other technological detritus)… but, in the meantime, here’s another update on the activities of io 0.0.1 beta++’s (human) colleagues (it’s been a while since the last one).

jazzColo[u]rs: le discrepanze tra finzione scientifica e realtà pratica

In the interview with Han-earl Park in the current issue of jazzColo[u]rs (Sommario Ago./Set. 2015, Anno VIII, n. 8–9), Andrew Rigmore asks about the the balance of freedom and prediction in working with improvising machines such as io 0.0.1 beta++: In teoria è tutto aperto, free, non ci sono quasi pre-istruzioni, tranne la durata approssimativa […]

Improjazz: drama without narration

Somehow I managed to miss this when it came out. Noël Tachet’s review of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) in Improjazz from way back in March 2012: Expériences de résonnances et d’occupation de l’espace sonore. Très dramatique sans narration. Tout l’espace est occupé, toujours de manière surprenante, avec peu de sons, peu de matière (toutefois […]

CloudsandClocks: deep dialogue

While reviewing ‘Anomic Aphasia’ (SLAMCD 559) by Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora, Nick Didkovsky and Josh Sinton, Beppe Colli, writing in CloudsandClocks, is reminded of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): It was about four years ago that—totally by chance: I found the CD in my mailbox—I listened to guitarist Han-earl Park for the very first time. […]

video trailer: io 0.0.1 beta++

I’m creating YouTube samplers of some of the more recent items in my discography, and I’ve started by uploading a trailer for ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) [more info on the recording…]. On the stage: two men, a woman, and an artifact, a freestanding mélange of industrial, military, and domestic hardware. The humans hold graceful, […]

Dalston Sound: sonic terrain

In the context of his discussion of Richard Barrett’s Dark Matter, and Barrett and Han-earl Park’s ‘Numbers’, Tim Owen of Dalston Sound describes ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): Intellectually, if nothing else, the pair [Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park] are an intriguing match. Before his meeting with Barrett, in May 2010, Park recorded an album, […]

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!
