An awesome concert experiment is
taking place today, Saturday June 25, in Los Angeles at Machine Project Gallery in Echo Park.
As a grand "musical" experiment, noted loon Jason Torchinsky has
written a crude 16-step sequencer for the Apple II, and is seeking to
gather up as many Apple IIs as possible to construct an orchestra
which will then perform a live, dynamic concert/musical event.
Machine's resident music guru, Chris Kallmyer, will be on hand to
discuss the nature of music, why some of the Apple's 256 tones are
notes and some are not.
Here is a direct link to the streaming page.
After the broadcast is over it will automatically archive and be
available on demand.
Starts at 6pm PT with a meeting of the Apple II owners/musicians, and concert begins at 8pm. More info here. We love Jason Torchinsky's wacky and wonderful projects around here at Boing Boing, and you may also dig his book: Ad Nauseam: A Survivor's Guide to American Consumer Culture
