site update: web audio player

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, […]

freedom, machine subjectivity and pseudo-science: twitter transcript

As a institutionally unaffiliated, part-time geek (and amateur anthropologist), I find the Computer Music tribes’ behavior fascinating. This is an unedited transcript of my observations from ImproTech Paris-New York 2012 : Improvisation & Technology series of events. My original observations came in the form of live tweets via @hanearlpark that spanned the performances on May […]

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, […]

site redesign 02-27-12

I’ve made some changes www.io001b.com. The previous design dates back to March 2010 (one that was launched in anticipation to the performance at Blackrock Castle Observatory), and was the basis of the recent update to busterandfriends.com. The new design incorporates some of the changes made for busterandfriends.com, reusing much of the same code, adds a new […]

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 […]

Baroque and Renaissance (audio clip: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Third audio clip (and final in the series) from ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) below: Franziska Schroeder (soprano saxophone), io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) and Han-earl Park (guitar). Excerpted from the track ‘Discovery: Decay’, the clip is taken from what is, for me, an uncharacteristic track on the CD, with its serene, careful and economical counterpoint […]

MusicZoom: un inno totale alla modernità

‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) is “total hymn to modernity” according to the wonderful review by Vittorio at MusicZoom. It’s a session in which the human musicians “throw themselves with passion on the ideas from the inanimate object”, and the listener will be “fully repaid by that which is a successful experiment.” Il titolo da […]

Rui Eduardo Paes: máquina de improvisar

Rui Eduardo Paes describes a “fake quartet” in which the organic musicians bring their experience in ‘avant-jazz’ and the “electroacoustics’ border with contemporary music” to the music, and in which the automaton “interactively reacting to what they do and even giving them cues”: Este é um falso quarteto entre uma máquina de improvisar, o io […]
