(Two Thousand + NINE symposium concert)
Droniphonia with iPHONES, Spatialization, Streaming environments and Multiple Instruments

Audio recording here

Based on the iPHONE application Srutibox by Henry Lowengard
Environmental streams from Locus Sonus
Concept by Pauline Oliveros

Droniphonia has polytonal drones continually morphing timbres, volumes and fundamentals moving in space. Networked musicians (Belfast, Banff and Troy NY) listen to the drones and develop gradually overlapping improvised sounds and phrases - first solo and then between two or three players at a time in a slowly growing density and texture. Different musical characters appear unexpectedly from time to time out of no where on a one time basis. Finally all players weave their way in and out of the droneophony sharing the unknown finale.

Players at SARC:
Pedro Rebelo - iPHONE/piano
Franziska Schroeder - soprano saxophone
Pauline Oliveros - iPHONE/bandoneon
Justin Yang - sax
Manuela Meier - accordion
Han-earl Park - guitar
Gascia Ouzounian - violin

Players at Troy, NY:

Doug Van Nort - laptop
Jonas Braasch - soprano saxophone

Player at Banff Alberta
Chris Chafe (Banff Alberta) - iPHONE/celleto

24 Fragments Event

(Final Performance for the Fragmented Orchestra Event)

MiSS Four - An improvisatory challenge from the Sonic Arts Research Centre
Sound artist Paul Stapleton, violinist Gascia Ouzounian and improvisers Pedro Rebelo and Franziska Schroeder teamed up for a feast of sonic explorations during the 24 Fragments event. The four musicians are all academic staff at Queen's University Belfast’s School of Music and Sonic Arts. What unites these four improvisers is their penchant for contemporary, intermedia, improvised, and electronic musics as well as their shared theoretical interest in networked music, virtual environments, social web technologies, the body in performance, performative research methods, and sound art.
