live octophonic performance as part of:
Richard Garet and Daniel Neumann
DOUBLE QUADROPHONIC DIPTYCH IN 3 MOVEMENTS – 11pm
DOUBLE QUADROPHONIC DIPTYCH IN 3 MOVEMENTS is a collaboration between Richard Garet and Daniel Neumann consisting of mapping out geometrical shapes with an 8-channel speaker system over Eyebeam’s vast Main Space. Each of them is using 4 speakers, symmetrically intertwined. The sound material that they created stems mostly from synthesized sources (analog and digital) and has then been exposed to various processes including filtering, layering, re-recording in different physical spaces or through modified media, speaker distortion, and others. These processed files provide each artist with a vocabulary with which they play out the speaker locations in relation to the architecture and to each other, extending the geometrical starting points into a complex spatial listening experience.

Within this collaboration, its participants were developing and experimenting with a hybrid between sound installation and live performance in Eyebeam’s Main Space. Some elements happened in real-time, others were programmed or generated algorithmically. The participants were engaging in a process of systemic composition, which used the space as an instrument, encouraging a “topological listening” practice. “Topological listening” means that there is no focus on sound elements themselves, rather, sounds call attention to the potential for meaning in their relationships to each other, to the space and to the individual listeners engaging with them. A collaborative approach to creating these environments highlights complex interconnections which can hardly be reduced to a single narrative.

Chavez Neumann is a recent sound collaboration between 2 distinctly different artists with a shared interest in
unstable environments and situations. No information was exchanged between the 2 prior to the performance as a
method of embracing instability in practice.

Sunday, February 12, 2012 – Roulette, NYC
Sound Artists activate the unique acoustics of Roulette’s newly renovated 1920s Art Deco theater with multichannel spacialized sound. With speakers set up throughout the entire Roulette space, visitors are invited to wander freely during the event, creating their own sonic and spacial narrative.

The Tank, NYC
as part of the Eavesdropping series
curated by Guy Barash
The group will explore collaborative strategies of composing and performing sound and visuals based on the idea of modular organization. Pieces are developed in non-hierarchical and decentralized forms where collaborators interact as equals. The modular structure is reflected less on the technical level but primarily on the level of collaborative formulation of ideas and its execution.
All shows to take place at 7:30 pm at the Playroom Theater 151 West 46th Street, 8th floor
Tickets are $10 at the door / $8 online

As part of the Clocktower’s Time Sync Audio Art Residency Program in the summer of 2011, artist Maria Chavez and her collaborator Daniel Neumann spent days and nights wandering the halls and chambers of the Clocktower Building with speakers, microphones, cables, turntables, and assorted audio gear. What they captured is represented here in a set of five acoustic portraits colored by Chavez’s unique textures generated from unusual uses of the traditional record turntable and amplified through Neumann’s imaginative placement of speakers.

Installation by Katia Ritz, Florian Hauswirth, Daniel Neumann
Red House Gallery, 317 East, 5th Street, New York
January 21, 2011, 7pm to 9pm,
live performance by Daniel Neumann “Three variations on three sounds at 317 E 5th St”
January 22 to 27th 2011
The architectonic and acoustic installation “Three sounds at 317 E 5th St” focuses on the perception and cognition of the specific space and its existing sounds. Three expansive cones visually amplify the three most present sounds at the Red House Gallery in the East Village, while also creating an acoustical focus. The installation adapts to the existing structure of the room, which creates a unique intervention in the environment. Daniel Neumann is presenting recordings of the three sounds, which he will use exclusively for his live performance “Three variations on three sounds at 317 E 5th St” during the opening.

Soundwalk for Elastic City
Brooklyn Bridge Park (corner Main St / Plymouth St)
various dates during the summer season 2010
The soundwalk “Demasking The Bridges” explores the small triangle between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo. The soundscape of the area is mainly dominated by the traffic of the two bridges. By slowly oscillating between the bridges, crossing through diverse surroundings the group learns about and experiences the “Masking Effect”. Focusing on the weaker maskees and shifting the threshold of the masker with our movement slowly uncovers more and more sound events and acoustic arenas.

The ensemble uses clarinette, flute, computer and visual material to examine the autum birds migration. An electroacoustic composition with one open parameter by Daniel Neumann made from flute and clarinette samples forms the base from which Patrick Franke, Ole Schmidt and Chris Weinheimer, by playing their instruments live, create dynamics, densities, currents, knots and direction.
Das Ensemble untersucht mittels Flöte, Klarinette, Computer sowie visuellen Materialien den Vogelzug im Herbst. Eine elektroakustische Komposition mit offenen Parametern aus Material von Flöte und Klarinette bildet die Grundlage aus der Dynamiken, Dichten, Ströme, Knoten und Richtungen herausgearbeitet werden.

The piece INNEN & AUREN (Inside & Auras) is a mixed and edited version of the concert INNEN & AUßEN (In/-side & Out/-side) by Franke Neumann Schmidt Weinheimer, that took place as AlulaTonSerien.Konzert #35 at the New Building of the Gallery for Contemporary Art in Leipzig, Dec. 15, 2007. I edited it and translated the spatial experience of the live concert to this stereo version. The chronological order of the concert was kept, but condensed. No sounds or effects were added.
If you are interested in a copy of the handmade cd, please contact me, I trade those for feedback.

Music for an Installation III is an edit of the recordings I made in the 11 spaces of the former swimming stadium in Leipzig. See previous post. The demand was to make the room sound, not to make sound for the room.

I produced a composition of static sound for Axel Toepfer’s video installation in an abandoned swimming stadium in Leipzig. Each of the eleven different spaces within the building had its own static sound. Changes in the sound could be perceived by the listeners only when they moved through the space.

INNEN & AUßEN (IN/-SIDE & OUT/-SIDE)
The concert and installation piece was performed as the finale concert in the series AlulaTonSerien at the Gallery for Contemporary Art Leipzig.
The four performers created a set-up, which took place in three rooms inside the gallery and outside the gallery. Each of the four performers had his own position and function within the set-up and with each position a certain statement about being inside and outside of different acoustic arenas is made.
The set-up included: a microphone outside of the gallery (Franke, outside), speakers behind a glass wall, microphone in room 1, feed from Franke and computer (Neumann, room 1), speakers outside the gallery and in room 1, two headphones in room 3, microphone, sine wave generator, feed from Franke and computer (Schmidt, room 3), four speakers in room 1, one speaker outside the gallery, violin, bass flute with internal microphones and electronics (Weinheimer, room 1).

Under the name Jackie Bruce I performed my montage pieces live from June 19-July 2 for a total of 60 night shift hours. The goal was to increase my output tenfold. Starting with pre-edited single pieces totally 6 hours, I re-mixed, -edited, -combined, -filtered, -folded and re-arranged 60 hours of concrète noise music. In doing so my emotional and conditional highs and lows became part of the montages.

Jubiläums-Mix zum einjährigen Bestehen der Sendung Jackie Bruce am Ende der Geschichte. Die 12 Sendungen, die jeweils 60 Minuten lang sind, benutzte ich als Ausgangsmaterial für die Jahresabrechnungsremontage und legte die einzelnen Sendungen auf 12 Tonspuren übereinander. Das Bearbeiten bestand dann darin aus der Klangflut Material herauszulöschen – zu demontieren. Was übrig blieb ist zu hören, wobei jeder Ton zeitlich exakt an der gleichen Stelle liegt, wie in der Original-Sendung.
