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! […]

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, […]

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 […]

audio salutations for an arbitrary demarcation of time (rev. 2012)

If io 0.0.1 beta++ could want, or express a desire, I imagine that it would want to wish all of you a happy arbitrary demarcation of time: io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) and Han-earl Park (guitar). io, however, cannot want, or express, anything… io, however, cannot want, or express, anything…but Happy New Year from me! about […]

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 […]
