Snippets, quotes and links from the Energy Music panel - Jamie Allen [again]:

Performance energy:
own project: boomBox, a flight case with sensors in it, performance of manipulating and playing the box.
other peoples’ projects: Remko Scha and Arthur Elsenaar

Energy purification:
[taking power and moulding it into music]
own project: circuitMusic
other peoples’ projects: Toshimaru Nakamura: no input mixer.

Material and energy autonomy:
own project: Art Generator
other peoples’ projects: Rory Nugent: Square Band, Jeff Fedderson: Earth Speaker, Michel de Broin: Shared Propulsion Car [pedals].

What are our technology options?
Energy harvesting, piezo, solar, water/wind.
System concerns data, efficiency battery power.

Example:
Sine wave turn table, made with Jo Kazuhiro [using a generator to power an amp but also using the sine wave signal as audio source].

Jamie got a craclebox from michel and went to the park and played it outside.
Circuitmusic machines - a portable player being made right now - 6 different versions with different energy sources.

There were lots of questions:
The relevance of russian aura photography?
How involuntary is the autonomous nervous system?
Is it reductionist to want to bypass gesture in music?
How long is for ever?
Is miniaturization actually driven by the desire to stop you from being able to fix things?
