This Body Of Art: The Singular Plural Of The Feminine, Helen A. Fielding Sep 2005

This Body Of Art: The Singular Plural Of The Feminine, Helen A. Fielding

Helen A Fielding

I explore the possibility that the feminine, like art, can be thought in terms of Jean-Luc Nancy’s concept of the singular plural. In Les Muses, Nancy claims that art provides for the rethinking of a technë not ruled by instrumentality. Specifically, in rethinking aesthetics in terms of the debates laid out by Kant, Hegel and Heidegger, he resituates the ontological in terms of the specificity of the techniques of each particular artwork; each artwork establishes relations particular to its world or worlds. What is at stake in the singular plural is the multiplicity of relations that are lost in ...

On Earth, Kristina Foley May 2005

On Earth, Kristina Foley

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

My thesis project is structured around a friendship that grew into an artistic collaboration. Laura Williams and myself, Kristina Foley, pulled our resources and concepts together from two seemingly disparate fields of art, Fiber Structure and Interlocking and the Media Art Program, to explore our personal identification with Feminism, magic, and the role of art in illustrating history through revealing perspectives often kept hidden. Using fibers and textile pieces we explore a women’s history that has been kept private and held close to the body, while simultaneously using video and photography to re-imagine how the female is projected into ...

Memories We Forget, Michael Dax Iacovone Jan 2005

Memories We Forget, Michael Dax Iacovone

Theses and Dissertations

I have always preferred the journey to the destination. When I was growing up, my family drove back and forth between Florida and New York every summer. My father did the driving, my mother sat next to him, and my older brother and sister sat in the back seat. This left the cavernous back of the family station wagon for me and the luggage. There was no radio, very little conversation, and I didn't sleep. I spent these summer trips staring for endless hours, out of the back window of the car, transfixed on the expanse of open road ...

Communication, Culture, And Curiosity: Using Target-Culture And Student-Generated Art In The Second Language Classroom, Deborah Berho, Victoria Defferding Jan 2005

Communication, Culture, And Curiosity: Using Target-Culture And Student-Generated Art In The Second Language Classroom, Deborah Berho, Victoria Defferding

Faculty Publications - Department of World Languages, Sociology & Cultural Studies

Studying art from the target culture and student creation of original artwork in the second language (L2) classroom have many benefits. Both provide a springboard for discussion of the culture(s) under study as well as one's own. These activities also positively change the classroom atmosphere, generating student curiosity and lowering the affective filter to language learning. Surprising as it may seem, little has been published about the visual arts and second language acquisition (SLA). This article surveys this limited research, briefly describes how brain research and language learning theories interact with art, ans presents the authors' observations of ...

How To Prepare A Piano, Annea Lockwood Jan 2005

How To Prepare A Piano, Annea Lockwood

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

My original Piano Transplants (1969-72) were about relishing the shock of displacement: pianos planted in an English garden, sinking in a Texas cattle pond, pianos beached and aflame; observing their slow transformation through natural processing the five year decay. My relationship with the piano did not end with the Piano Transplants, though. I will also discus more recent works stemming from my fascination with the rich array of sounds which can be drawn from every part of the instrument once the keyboard is dethroned.


Invisible Symmetries: A Retrospective Of The Work Of Lindsay Vickery, Jonathan Mustard Jan 2005

Invisible Symmetries: A Retrospective Of The Work Of Lindsay Vickery, Jonathan Mustard

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

The following is a retrospective of the work of Western Australian born composer Lindsay Vickery. The paper examines the composer's diverse output in composed and improvised instrumental and electronic music and multimedia works. A nine digit string of numbers that the composer calls a "cypher", ties together a significant portion of Vickery's output for almost two decades of compositional activity, but the sense in which these works are about something else is palpable in each and every one. Iconic pieces where a serial-like method is an anathema and cypher based pieces all seem to point to a structure ...


Western Electric: A Survey Of Recent Western Australian Electronic Music, Lindsay Vickery Jan 2005

Western Electric: A Survey Of Recent Western Australian Electronic Music, Lindsay Vickery

Sound Art / Mobile Art, Cat Hope Jan 2005

Sound Art / Mobile Art, Cat Hope

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

This paper examines the role of sound installation and music composition practices in addressing the relationship between sound and telecommunications devices, in this case the mobile phone. The popularity of mobile phone artworks is rapidly increasing, with handsets readily available, artists excited about sponsorship opportunities, and the general push in electronic arts. This paper focuses primarily on work by Perth mobile phone Sound Art collective, Metaphonica, which explore many issues raised by this art form. "Phonebox" (2005) was a site specific sound installation where phones are called from a remote computer, presenting a synchronized composition featuring sounds created by the ...


Modernist And Postmodernist Arts Of Noise, Part 1: From The European Avant-Garde To Contemporary Australian Sound Art, David Bennett Jan 2005

Modernist And Postmodernist Arts Of Noise, Part 1: From The European Avant-Garde To Contemporary Australian Sound Art, David Bennett

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

The broad aim of the paper that follows is to test the claim of critics such as Miriam Fraser and Steve Connor that the modernist deconstruction of the music/noise dichotomy has entered a distinctively postmodern phase. The article below therefore traces the history and poetics of this dichotomy from the modernist avant-garde to contemporary Australian postmodernist Sound Art, moving from a discussion of the ideas of Russolo, Cage, Boulez and Schaeffer, to a close reading of Ros Bandt's "Stack" (2000- 01). These themes as expressed in contemporary Australian composition are then explored in Part Two.


Surface Noise, Philip Samartzis Jan 2005

Surface Noise, Philip Samartzis

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

This paper seeks to trace the genealogy of surface noise as a tool of musical expression by surveying a range of artistic practices based around the record and turntable that privilege detritus, abrasion, repetition and decay as key compositional devices. The paper begins by examining the acoustic properties of the oldest playable recording (Frank Lambert's talking clock) in order to outline the numerous characteristics and flaws inherent in early models of mechanical reproduction and storage that vigorously conspired to interfere with the listening experience. This is followed by an examination of the way recording technology was converted from a ...

Elephants And Suffering In Dusty Corners, Susanna Ferrar Jan 2005

Elephants And Suffering In Dusty Corners, Susanna Ferrar

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

The following non-refereed paper has been compiled by the editors from the audio transcript and notes provided by Susanna Ferrar for her talk delivered to the Inaugural Totally Huge New Music Festival Conference (Perth: 9 Oct. 2005). The original program note to her presentation reads: "I keep talking about this project I'm doing, visiting places where the ashes of my grandparents' children ended up, who were all born and raised in Western Australia. As I proceed, adventures seem to be befalling me. Sometimes it seems more important to hang out the washing or change the cat litter. The level ...


Rice And Celery (Toglen), Domenico De Clario Jan 2005

Rice And Celery (Toglen), Domenico De Clario

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

Berenice is the name of the last of fifty five imaginary cities that Marco Polo describes to Kublai Khan. These descriptions and further dialogues between Marco and the Khan constitute the substance of Italo Calvino's "Invisible Cities". The just in Berenice constitute a secret society, recognizing each other through the pronunciation of certain words (especially commas, parenthesis and the space between things) and through their simple diet of broad beans, zucchini flowers, rice and soup. In recent projects I have been examining the idea that evidence of the existence of a single and independent fixed self cannot seem to ...


Preface: Sound Scripts: A Word From Tura New Music, Tos Mahoney Jan 2005

Preface: Sound Scripts: A Word From Tura New Music, Tos Mahoney

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

The Inaugural Totally Huge New Music Festival Conference was a bold initiative by its partner presenters Tura New Music and the Faculty of Communications and Creative Industries, Edith Cowan University, Perth, including the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. In an arts milieu which is increasingly becoming “industrialised” and the dollar the bottom line criteria for success, it is reassuring to have the confirmation that there are those—in fact there is a strong cohort—who are dedicated to delving the depths of the meaning of their own and others’ practice.


Introduction: A New Historicism? Sound, Music And Ruined Pianos., Cat Hope, Jonathan Marshall Jan 2005

Introduction: A New Historicism? Sound, Music And Ruined Pianos., Cat Hope, Jonathan Marshall

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

One of the highlights of every New Music festival which we attend is the banter that goes on between artists and audiences about what we have experienced together. The Inaugural Totally Huge New Music Festival Conference was a way to formalize these discussions for the 7th Totally Huge New Music Festival of 2005, and it was a privilege to have been able to attend a conference about New Music in the midst of it actually happening. The Conference was opened by the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Communications and Creative Industries, Edith Cowan University, Professor Robyn Quin, and it ...


Modernist And Postmodernist Arts Of Noise, Part 2: From The Clifton Hill Mob To Chamber Made Opera’S Phobia, Linda Kouvaras Jan 2005

Modernist And Postmodernist Arts Of Noise, Part 2: From The Clifton Hill Mob To Chamber Made Opera’S Phobia, Linda Kouvaras

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

This paper will continue to trace negotiations outlined in Part 1 of the music/noise dichotomy as expressed in modernist and postmodernist works.1 Drawing connections with the trajectory of "glitch" in popular music since the 1970s. The paper will examine a number of key ways in which the music/noise dichotomy has been addressed as a borderline dispute between, for example, the embodied and the disembodied, the scored and the unscored, the accidental and the intentional, sense and nonsense, culture and nature. Two key figures from the highly influential group of sound artists who came together at Melbourne's ...


I.B.R. Variation 1, Miha Ciglar Jan 2005

I.B.R. Variation 1, Miha Ciglar

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

In this paper I would like to introduce my recent composition: "I.B.R. Variation 1" (a composition for computer, electrified guitar, mixing board and human body), which is derived from three different projects, - Illusions, Body Mix, Resistance -, fusing three different and already unusual interfaces for musical expression into a powerful new musical instrument. The piece is implemented by employing computers and common sound synthesis/processing techniques in combination with a rather primitive manipulation and misuse of low tech analogue equipment. The main idea was to assign unusual tasks to usual pieces of musical equipment, transforming a mixing board into ...
