Io was constructed by Han-earl Park and is […]

manifesto in action (liner notes: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Fourth and final excerpt from Sara Roberts’ liner notes to ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): There is the limbic tickle of Freud’s uncanny, yes, our scanners are confused by this non-human playing music with humans. But even beyond that animal attentiveness we watch and listen carefully because we know we’re seeing a kind of manifesto […]

standing alone (liner notes: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Third excerpt from Sara Roberts’ liner notes to ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): For the audience, wondering how this artifact has so much presence, is so handily managing a situation they themselves might be challenged to negotiate? There is something in io’s performance that a human musician, even playing io as an instrument, could not […]

its own sound (liner notes: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Another short excerpt from Sara Roberts’ liner notes to ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): io 0.0.1 beta++ is rather special in being both an instrument and a player. And given the two attributes it has a very particular sound, ‘sound’ here referring to both timbral quality and the broader sense of having an indelible identity, […]

a curious situation (liner notes: io 0.0.1 beta++)

A short excerpt from the liner notes to ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) written by the California-based interactive media artist Sara Roberts: On the stage: two men, a woman, and an artifact, a freestanding mélange of industrial, military, and domestic hardware. The humans hold graceful, polished objects, but the domed assemblage stands alone. And while […]

RTÉ: Morning Ireland: Human-Machine Improvisations (Cork, 2010)

I just did a short spot on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland. Plugged the Human-Machine Improvisations (Cork, 2010) gig, and they also played a snippet of Bruce Coates with io 0.0.1 beta++ (audio recording below). I wonder how often improvised music (by machine improvisers or human performers) gets on the national news 😉 beta test 05-12-09_03 [mp3″] io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) with […]
