I continue to be involved with Locus Sonus, a live audio streaming consortium based in France. I stream from my UMBC office, contributing the Baltimore node. A “sound map” points to the streams, distributed from around the world. Currently held over is the exhibition “City Sonic” in Mons: http://www.digitalmcd.com/2011/08/22/festival-international-des-arts-sonores-city-sonic-du-27-aout-au-11-septembre-a-mons/
City Sonic is a course of sound installations which spreads in six locations in the downtown area of Mons (BAM, Maison Madness, Machine with Water, Salle Saint-Georges, Médiathèque and site of the old Slaughter-houses). Installation and creations of international artists such as Hans Peter Kuhn (Al), David Renggli (CH), Jim Shaw (the USA), Saâdane Afif (Fr), Yvat Collective (Ro)… and French nationals such as François Martig, Locus Sonus, Gauthier Keyaerts.
Coming at the end of September, a new Locus Sonus installation in Brussels:
Festival Todaysart - MyCityLab, International Festival Beyond Art in Gare du Midi, Brussels, Belgium

MyCityLab : It is a user-driven innovation network which brings together artists, technologists, philosophers and citizens to investigate on how particularly social, locative and mobile network infrastructure and mobile devices can contribute to new ways of travelling through the city, dealing with locations and people.

Join me for an encore performance of Creative Acts: Site Specific Dance & Music Performances in Joseph Beuys Sculpture Park, UMBC. An artist talk-back will immediately follow along with light refreshments. Admission: free. I have organized the music for 30 Oaks, which was choreographed by Meghan Flanigan and features John Dieker and Rose Hammer Burt, reeds, and Will Redman, percussion. Will performs on marching band percussion and instruments that I have created from UMBC recycled rubbish.
Free parking is available for visitors in the Stadium Lot across the street from the park. See parking map below or attached. Follow this link for directions to UMBC. Rain dates: same time, one week later.
Creative Acts in Joseph Beuys Sculpture Park is supported in part by the TKF Foundation.
People Who Became Verbs (World Premiere) will be presented at the Theater Project, Baltimore, June 10th and 11th at 8pm. It’s the most recent collaboration between Renée Brozic Barger and I. The traumatic financial collapse has inspired this dance, but the work also promises greater connection, contribution, and partnerships among people. I will produce large scale video projections and a sound score sequenced from samples of business machines, office furnishings, and traditional musical instruments.
We are collaborating with Nicole A. Martinell’s Deep Vision Dance Company, for this night of multimedia dance works.
Kickstarter - The Failure Support Group at 2011 The Transmodern Festival -
Everyone loves a failure, right? What’s not to love, and, learn from?
Liquid Measure -
This is another work of choreography by Carol Hess. This time I transformed some Bach in Abelton Live (sorry JS). A duet for two women who use their bodies as tools of measurement, investigating ancient methods of measuring. Conceived for originally for AREA 405, a non-traditional performance space. Performed by Becky Dyson and Franki Trout. Performed at AREA 405 in Baltimore (2009), UMBC Theater (2010), Load of Fun Theater in Baltimore (2010), and the Megapolis Festival, at the 2640 Space in Baltimore (2010).
