Omaggio a Rob Hordijk

Omaggio a Rob Hordijk

…and to his magical instrument, the Blippoo Box   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)     View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)   “I have always considered sound a “material” to sculpt; thus I consider the “art” aspect of the Blippoo Box to consist of how it sculpts sound into abstract sonic soundscapes. This art is interactive, as the optional “playing” of the box can be a performing art, and hence the box becomes a musical instrument as well. To play a Blippoo Box means to anticipate what the box is doing and not vice versa, as the behavior can only be predicted in a broad sense. This forces the player to improvise.” “Chaos theory assumes that nature is ruled by endless chains of causes and effects. These chains form a multidimensional matrix where all the chains are interconnected while combining to form more complex chains on larger scales. It interests me from an artistic point of view that many natural processes are balanced systems that appear to have many possible stable states, in which the chains of cause and effect repeat themselves.” excerpts from Rob Hordijk, ‘The Blippoo Box: A Chaotic Electronic Music Instrument, Bent by Design’ * * * Gibber was a very nice gift Rob sent me last summer, after finally moving and and settling in Mallorca. As he knew about my love for early speech synths and my hacked Texas Instruments’ toys, he sent me the Gibber board, which I mounted on an empy Speak& Spell box and added a couple of pressure sensors to the circuit. Such a fun and very nice sound design, based on a 40-year old SPO256-AL2 speech chip. Gibber with Blippoo   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)     View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)   At times I spend a lot of time with these beautiful instruments as I find their company very instructive in many ways. Still some people ask me about these “pieces”…, well they are not pieces, they are mainly fragments of an everyday sound practice, ‘musicking’ if you wish, and beyond Kant and his ‘contemplations’. Everything I do with sound and not, aspires to be speechless, without the urgency of communicating anything. If it expresses anything at all, that is pure character, essence more than intentionality. It manifests potential energy more than activity, relying on its own bare existence and ephemerality. The ephemerality and beauty of the creative spirit of some many wonderful people like Rob. The presence of his sounds will continue to resonate with us. Thank you for your beautiful instruments and sounds. RIP Rob Hordijk (1958-2022)...

September sound meditations

Posted by on 5:40 pm in Audio , Video | 0 comments

September sound meditations

this one is for Larry @dronefinger and Rene @basssleeper ”Sounds of every sort are surging incessantly through the air. When we walk by the seaside, a salty tang of brine enters our mouth ; when we watch a draught of wormwood being mixed in our presence, a bitter effluence touches it. So from every object flows a stream of matter, spreading out in all directions. The stream must flow without rest or intermission, since our senses are perpetually alert and everything is always liable to be seen or smelt or to provoke sensation by sound.” “With the solemn hush of night all around, we listen to sounds; we speak aloud without a word uttered. We have many other paradoxical experiences of the same kind, all of which seem bent on shaking our faith in the senses. But all to no purpose. Most of this illusion is due to the mental assumptions which we ourselves superimpose, so that things not perceived by the senses pass for perceptions. There is nothing harder than to separate the facts as revealed from the questionable interpretations promptly imposed on them by the mind.” excerpts from Lucretius, On the nature of the Universe   “Spinoza’s ethics is the philosophy of the becoming-active, in parallel, of mind and body, from an origin in passion, in impingement, in so pure and productive a receptivity that it can only be conceived as a third state, an excluded middle, prior to the distinction between activity and passivity: affect. This “origin” is never left behind, but doubles one like a shadow that is always almost perceived, and cannot but be perceived, in effect.” “A political knowledge-practice that takes an inclusive, nonjudgmental approach to tending belonging-together in an intense, affectively engaged way is an ethics-as opposed to a morality. Political ecology is an amoral collective ethics. Ethics is a tending of coming-together, a caring for belonging as such.” excerpts from Brian Massumi, Parables for the Virtual   this one is to welcome a new cycle with leaves in the wind… 🍂 🍃🌿 “Now that we have discovered the nature of the mind and of the vital spirit as a part of the man, drop this name harmony which was passed down to the musicians from the heights of Helicon – or else perhaps they fetched it themselves from some other source and applied it to the matter of their art, which had then no name of its own. Whatever it be, let them keep it.” “ […] sounds are disseminated in all directions because each one, after its initial splintering into a great many parts, gives. birth to others, just as a spark of fire often propagates itself by starting fires of its own. So places out of the direct path are often filled with voices, which surge round every obstacle, one sound being provoked by another. But visual films all continue in straight lines along their initial paths, so that no one can see over a wall, as he can hear voices from inside it. Even a voice, however, is blunted in its passage through barriers and reaches our ears blurred, so that we seem to hear a mere noise rather than words.” excerpts from Lucretius, On the nature of the Universe   …and a very last one before getting back...

Going back 20 years tonight… These toys were already 25yo when I got them and they are still up and running after so long. I’m not sure what happened to all the circuitbenders active in Vancouver in the very early 2000’s, but meanwhile hacking electronics has been already expanding beyond that. In any case, this is nothing nostalgic, …we flow, as always, like leaves in the wind. A babelian gibbering for the end of times.

Holy Basil 62

This one is for all my friends, everywhere. It’s so nice to breathe with some Holy Basil’s energy tonight, while discretely aging a bit more. The thing is that while the modules just reveal fluctuations of micro-voltages, you are immediately brought into a different sentient state of being and playing. The same state we can be when within a forest. The sound though, is not “the sound of the plant”. The plant just reveals a perceptual trace, an immanence; which at turns influences my perception of the relationship. A pure, tactile, materialistic apprehension of living forms. That apprehension might also apply to sentient ways of being we can’t even understand, or conceive, …minerals, oceans, mountains, clouds… fires. No more projections, but sonic embraces.   g sound, …but not in G  ...

One last beautiful day in the forest with some beautiful sounds, caviidae, othoptera, sinewaves, pinknoise and with some friends playing together. A wonderful ending, hoping to be back in the forest very soon. Trees within trees, resonating trees… a really wonderful time breathing in and resounding within. We need to remember – every single moment – how this kind of beautiful lives really are unreplaceable.

meditazione sonora per un amico lontano

One day in the early Spring 1998, an anonymous Japanese man encountered on the Chiyoda Line in Tokyo, told me out of the blue these exact words: “Those who recognize that imagination is the arbiter of reality we call them ‘wise’, those who then put this knowledge into practice in life we call them ‘artists’ “. After that he disappeared in a large crowd flowing out of the train. I tried to reach him but I could not. In those same days I also acquired these resonating singing bowls.    ...

lamenti senza parole • failure and resistance

Posted by on 3:46 pm in News, Video | 0 comments

lamenti senza parole • failure and resistance

    I go back today to these lines about an old idea of failure and resistance, a paradox maybe. Tough, one I wish to hold on while living in our ever more desperate planet. While not new, Kundera’s words resonate again very strongly with me at this age and time. Maybe too many ‘drops’ have been slowly filling me up. While in a vortex of frustrations, I do not really wish to go back to another ’normal’. That normal is possibly one of the main causes of our own demise. So lamenting can be granted, but not just because of desperation. Sadness is not depression, sadness is revolt, a drastic shift, a touch, a wave…   […] The only thing I deeply, avidly, wanted was a lucid, unillusioned eye. I finally found it in the art of the novel. This is why for me being a novelist was more than just working in one “literary genre” rather than another; it was an outlook, a wisdom, a position; a position that would rule out identification with any politics, any religion, any ideology, any moral doctrine, any group; a considered, stubborn, furious non-identification, conceived not as evasion or passivity but as resistance, defiance, rebellion. I wound up having some odd conversations: “Are you a Communist, Mr. Kundera?” “No, I’m a novelist.” “Are you a dissident?” “No, I’m a novelist.” “Are you on the left or the right?” “Neither. I’m a novelist.” Since early youth, I have been in love with modern art—with its painting, its music, its poetry. But modern art was marked by its “lyrical spirit,” by its illusions of progress, its ideology of the double revolution, aesthetic and political, and little by little, I took a dislike to all that. […] – from Testaments Betrayed by Milan Kundera   “…doing while thinking, thinking while doing,” said and lived Franco Donatoni. I can’t even speak or write decently in my mother language anymore, let alone think … but all in all I don’t mind or care anymore. Losing contact with forms and rhetoric to favor sound thinking, or a “sounding” thought, beyond any language, is what – willingly or unwillingly – seems to be my constant behavior. Reality also seems to demonstrate that despite everything, (… all the work, all the compositions, all the performances, activities, speeches, seminars, essays, books, parties and scores) I cannot verify any effect of my work in the reality of the world. Failure seems obvious. A torn planet and a desperate humanity do not seem to receive any beneficial influence from any aesthetic or philosophical position of/on “musical discourse”. Then non-identification: aware and tenacious, not as evasion or passivity but as resistance, seems to be – with Milan Kundera – not just a choice but the real necessity for...

sound engines

Heraclitan Rhythm Machine & Hydra   Beside myself, there are at least 3 people who might enjoy these sound engines: the two great wizards who kindly and intensely made them for me, Dan and Larry, and @_bass_sleeper_ who is one of my favourite bass player and a great listener. Cheers to them and every one! …and to Constantine, he has two reasons why. Though after cheering, humans continue to make the same mistakes over and over again; they seem to not be able to understand how many times theatricality and deceit can meet – or better say, always meet… under periods of great weakness, deep unbalance and loss of “vision” ….in spite of sight. Reality is very foggy these days, even in the brighter Sun. Though Sun doesn’t really care, its living state is like the slow-motion decaying of a burst of energy. 1, 10000000000000000000000000000000000000………or… it is not going to make any difference, as we are likely just disturbances of control(led…) voltage, transmuted in easily digestible emotional content. Therefore we are noise, live in noise, produce noise, create with noise, defeat and disregard noise; because noise challenges us in many ways, and when we lost the ability to attend to sound, beyond the everlasting chattering of thinking: trying to understand what simply is and will always be, the spectrum of human nature. Does this justify violence? No, though it pushes tolerance to sensitive thresholds. Action seems nowadays not very easy when the theatre sells distilled fear, falsities, deceit and gradual dissipation of resistance. So yes, drones, and noise are just a feeding source of possibilities. The “dark sides”, the raw matter, a blood pumping machine. One where noise would perturb our security and the theatricality of self-expression. “Il teatro dei balocchi” would stop there, Pinocchio would never exist and humans would be happily continue to kill each other as usual. Is screaming about all this disturbing? If so, apologies, I’m actually totally at loss myself at times… But is it really the noise we hate so much, or rather real freedom, democracy, and all the beautiful rainbowed coloured values we scream about while things are just going slowly down the drain? Or, more appropriately – as I said elsewhere, while a lot of “noise” is coming up, …from the drain. Finally, to end the rant, thank you Aristotle, while my language is failing, my body is full of noise. noise • ianus bifron • sound  ...

harsh noise meditation

…with liquid lights and distant radio wavesI’m loving playing with theses sharp brash sounds, and these two instruments are really great together. It’s always like a phantasmagoric dive in sonic energies which are constantly present but get triggered or amped by touch, pressure and resistance. Entering microscopic shimmering veils of electrons, disturbed by random currents and abrupt surges, for me is like entering rapid bursts of time/light, extremely bright lights of simple energy exchange. Imagine something like that, but multiplied exponentially to a very, very large quanta of energy; then, at that state, we would become an extremely bright star in a fraction of a nanosecond. Does anyone wish to tell that story again?  ...

for Kenton @kentonloewen, who has always known my passion for Electricity. ….though it sounds better in Italian, it is just a metaphor to give homage to electricity first, and give credit and love to everyone who like me love it. They all have been further inspiring me in adventuring further in so many ways. When there is no future, in spite of all the statements, living in a perennial present without envisioning minds, incandescent flashers of energy are badly needed. Just look around, it might be more difficult to find them these days, though they need to shine brighter and brighter, as they can. …qui habet aures audiendi, audiat. •  💡  💥  😎  🤘  🖤  💡  •         View this post on Instagram A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)       View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)   *** luci incandescenti e creature sonore (domestic installation #6) this is for Tina @pearstina Thank you @_sunhaus for building these lovely Orthoptera and Caviidae.

HRM and Maple resonator

  This is a room recording directly to the camera mics. So, we are missing the omnidirectionality and a bit of transparency in the air that would smooth the Maple’s shimmering resonance. Though there is no way to capture the sound as in presence. As always, depending on the sound, you might need some simple eq. and a subwoofer, to cover the 110 Hz and lower that you don’t want going to the Maple. Apart from that, it’s a shimmering resonator for the HRM. To listen to a few other sound samples on this resonator,  check HERE  ...

california box, fourses tarp, blippoo & krohn-hite filters

Playing and learning with new and older instruments. This is for @inestancre @coryalder @jimblackmusic and for everyone who enjoy these raw experiments. Though, listen NOT at full volume, as at times dynamics and frequencies are wild. I’m having fun, and I hope some of you might as well… aesthetics seems unnecessary these days. I really like the Krohn-Hite filter, and I’m happy that the cleaning job worked well and the pots are now clean and smooth. It’s kind of a very spartan unit, with very nice and simple functions, so it’ll be fun to get to know and play it better with some time. There seem to be so many possible ways and combinations to experiment and work with. It would definitely benefit from spectrally rich sounds that would provide sculptural ideas for sonic movable shapes. If then we were to expand them in a full 360º audio field, then I will really need to stop playing and just bathing in sounds, for hours. …lucid dreaming… blah blah….blah…....

ansia rumore sogno • for Chris

  Noise is the alter ego, Ianus Bifrons. The philosopher’s stone: a golden stone is still a stone. This work is a short ode to things I hold dear in my life: our beautiful planet, friendship, love and imagination. Musical communication only exists on a purely emotional level. Emotionality is immanent; expression is definitely linked to the instant, instant is unpredictably transcendent. Dedicated to my dearest friend Chris Rolfe * * * * * For/with pebbles and driftwood, Sitka Spruce resonators, plate reverb, touch boards (plywood, Douglas Fir bark & Sitka Spruce), blippoo box, Max/MSP & capacitance sensors.

testing reactive floor

Testing a prototype floor/touch board, to use with dancers in a future project I’ll expand this to a 5’x8′ floor with at least 2 piezos to drive Max/MSP, and possibly run multichannel audio out in 8 wood resonators. It should be pretty fun and engaging both to use and watch/listen. …hopefully sometime in a not too distant future : ) …with the blippoo box connected to the system   Testing a larger floor:   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)     View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)     View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Giorgio Magnanensi (@giominz)  ...

the philosophers’ stone is still a stone (for K & L)

Here’s where I’m at the beginning of this year, engaging with the materiality of sonic systems, extending mind and body while practicing movements with the purpose of making music, …or simply producing sonic matter. Focusing on this kind of instruments as source of and inspiration for an embodied sonic activity has kept me away and free from any need of (self-) expression; and being able to enjoy their peculiar agency, their ability to instigate sonic dialogues, feed imagination, discover unexpected challenges, surprises, while enjoying fascinating conversations. The philosophers’ stone is still a stone. This is also a little gift for dear friends at the beginning of a new year. With love and affection....

parallel 03

parallel 03

Parallel 03: Endlings (Raven Chacon and John Dieterich) + collaborators https://www.parallel03.com/     Parallel 03 brings together a new collaboration between New Mexico-based musicians Raven Chacon and John Dieterich (known together as Endlings) and six Vancouver musicians and sound artists utilizing a variety of cross-platform and anonymous methods for composition and improvisation. Composed, recorded, and arranged over four months of isolation in 2020, the eight collaborators became generators, translators, mistranslators and filters for each others’ ideas in an incalculable feedback loop of expansive processes.   Featuring… Raven Chacon John Dieterich Parmela Attariwala Adrian Avendaño John Brennan Elisa Ferrari Marina Hasselberg Alanna Ho Joel Schuman (website design)     PARALLEL 03 In its labyrinthine nature this magic website well represents the creative work and interaction that have been developing and growing among all the artists involved in VNM’s Parallel 3 over a few months of collective work, dialogues, creations, discoveries and exchange. Before reflecting upon a few ideas emerging from the project and this space, I wish to give a special thank you to Raven Chacon and John Dieterich for their commitment, leadership and enthusiasm, to the six Vancouver musicians who wholeheartedly embraced this creative adventure during an intense time for everyone involved bringing their full creative power and passion, to Steve Chow for the beautiful poster design and to Joel Schuman who created this wonderful website resonating with all these visions and dreams. To thank these artists means mainly and foremost to acknowledge their wonderful creative spirit, a spirit that has been nurtured by many things: abstraction, analogy, beauty, brainstorming, intuition, tension, divergent thinking, questions, improvisation, noise, anxiety, diversity, magical thinking, playfulness, ambiguity, serendipity, story telling, experiment and the power of imagination…   …dispersion, infiltration, osmosis, adoption, abstraction, contagion… music here finally aspires to the dimension of scent.   Musical communication only exists on a purely emotional level. Emotionality is immanent, expression is definitely linked to the instant, instant is unpredictably transcendent.   The labyrinthine and multidimensional nature of this project and this space has been inspired by imagination and perplexities, meandering, translations, sonic and silent utterances while discovering the ephemeral poetry hidden everywhere, …fragments used to define an ongoing and endless process in which we wander on the verge of discovering (…or revealing) ourselves. Fragments of form: perhaps the only possible form. Here we won’t find a single, indisputable centre, here a different kind of Harmonia, questions and awe, make everything equally important and equally unimportant. Here we blur invention and imagination, while they both give themselves to our perceptions in their multi-form and magical nature, while they act with full agency and are not acted upon. Invention and imagination here are not related to expression, as their very nature is purely symbolic: like cloudiness is not just about clouds. While looking at and immersing ourselves in these clouds we open to vast horizons while resonating with creative energy and poetics of engagement. Finally, a poetic vision emerges here within qualities and behaviours essential to any practice of freedom; to any healthy relationship among people and communities and within the biosphere we live in, the magic beauty of the fundamental interconnectedness of all things.

Crow Stone Tone Poem

Posted by on 10:00 am in Video | 0 comments

Crow Stone Tone Poem

Crow Stone Tone Poem (2016-2020) by Julie Andreyev and a crow Interpreted and performed by Giorgio Magnanensi     A collaboration with a free-living crow who lives in the territory that includes my home. This project is based on interspecies play using stones, initiated by the adult crow who gifted me a pebble as acknowledgement for water I left for his family. The ten stone arrangements that we created are adapted into a score. – Julie Andreyev *  *  * In approaching Julie’s score I was thinking again and reconsidering the idea of matter as passive, raw or inert material. Stones, in spite of their apparent static and inanimate presence, have powerful sonic and affective qualities that resonate through their material agency in full and tactile viscerality. These are qualities I’m extremely attracted by, both as forms of activating creative energy and as poetics of engagement. The stones and the images to which Julie’s story associates them, become here actants within a score morphed into a polydimensional instrument. As such, the score displays itself sonically while inviting us to engage and play with an enhanced creative agency: an invitation to move, be moved and imagine, while discovering beauty beyond any aesthetic discourse. – Giorgio Magnanensi   The sounds produced in this recording are both sounds of the stones moving, touching and resonating, and pre-recorded sounds of the same stones, triggered while touching/moving them on the plywood board used as a touch-sensor device. A piezo microphone attached underneath the board triggers various audio processing of the stones’ sounds, while toward the end, a highly filtered crow song appears as an eerie and shadowy presence that reveals only the higher frequencies of the bird’s voice.   Julie Andreyev, Crow Stone Tone Poem      ...

The Magical Forest

for/with Marina Hasselberg, cello Thank you Marina! Thank you to John Korsrud and to The Hard Rubber Orchestra/An Earful of Vancouver for commissioning this video, and to Marina for her beautiful playing and the embracing of these resonances. This is Panel III from: TDU MH – il fuoco e l’artificio (2018) for cello, 16 Red Cedar and Pacific Maple resonators and live electronics https://giorgiomagnanensi.com/tdu-mh-2/ TDU MH has been written with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and it is dedicated to Marina Hasselberg. This work is both a statement and a poetic exploration. The statement displays sound in its visceral immanence – il fuoco, the body, the voice. The poetic exploration wanders in multiple metaphors (l’artificio) and symbolic resonances of the Forest, La Selva. “From the family tree to the tree of knowledge, from the tree of life to the tree of memory, forests have provided an indispensible resource of symbolization in the cultural evolution of humankind, so much so that the rise of modern scientific thinking remains quite unthinkable apart from a prehistory in such metaphorical borrowings.” * Starting from here and inspired by the intense quality of resonating wood instruments, I wandered in four imaginary and symbolic landscapes to think, observe and design spatial and sonic analogies to remind myself, and hopefully others as well, about the beauty of the trees, their symbolic powers and the power of imagination and Harmonia: a utopia worth living for and within. The piece is articulated in 4 seamless panels: I. La Selva Oscura • ansia/anxiety Dark winds, vectors of speed II. La Selva Antica • rumore/noise Swarming of voices, colors and games III. The Magical Forest • sogno/dream Veils of expanding spaces and spectral resonance IV. The Place of Correspondences • Harmonia Doubling and pairing; mirrors and transparencies __________________________________________________________________ *) Roland Bechmann, ‘Des arbres et des homes’ (p. 258-63), Paris: Flammarion, 1984    ...

ondas de sombra

for Marina Hasselberg Maps and Shadows Is it possible to transform different representations of music to space, and vice versa? Is there a point where they collapse into each other? Sound like space is a place in which we are embedded, in which the sensory experience of reality and artistic form can finally converge. Space as a dimension of time implies movement, maps and presence. Sonorous spaces – like traversable spaces – map our perception of time; and to light sound should be compared when sound is not just what we hear but also the medium of our perception. If we understand the close relation here between listening and seeing, sound and light; then visualizing sound is like understanding that is not about what we “see” as what we see “in”. Beyond the maps, the shadows imply a presence in time and in space; and like walking in the city of Zora – one of Italo Calvino’s Le Cittá Invisibili (Invisible Cities) – we might recognize a place that no one, having seen it, can ever forget: “… the city which can not be expunged from the mind is like an armature, a honey-comb in whose cells each of us can place the things he wants to remember …” (GM)     “Music cannot exist without sound, but sound can exist without music.  Thus it seems that sound is more important.” Giacinto...
