RYOKO AOKI // THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS  HAGOROMO 羽衣   Favoriting HAGOROMO 羽衣  HAGOROMO - 羽衣 - is a Japanese Noh play often attributed to the legendary Noh master Zeami Motokiyo (世阿弥 元清) (c. 1363 – c. 1443). The play tells a tale of an angel who comes to earth and loses her magical invisible cloak. A fisherman finds the cloak and intends to keep it. Upon hearing of the fisherman, the angel approaches and asks for her cloak to be returned. But the fisherman says no. However the two strike a deal where the cloak returned if the angel with perform the sacred moon dance. The angel reclaims her cloak and ascends to the moon. Noh performer Ryoko Aoki and The Amplified Elephants have created a 21st Century reimagining of this story blending electronic music and sound art with traditional Noh performance techniques. As a live experience Jonathan Duckworth (RMIT University) and Shingenori Mochizuki (Ritsumeikan University) have created an avatar of Ryoko and virtual environments in which that performers and audiences are immersed. The technological advancements of this project are furthered by the use of the Disruptive Critters interface created by DHD (RMIT) and featuring the vocals of James Hullick and Justine Anderson. Ross Eldridge (RMIT) has been the computer programmer for this project, supported by Casey Rice. credits released September 7, 2023 Ryoko Aoki - Noh voice The Amplified Elephants - electronic music Alisa Chu Teagan Connor Jay Euesden Megan Hunter Helen Kruljac Robyn McGrath Daniel Munnery Kathryn Sutherland Esther Tuddenham Natalie Walters Disruptive Critters Vocals: Justine Anderson James Hullick Technology Artists: Shigenori Mochizuki Jonathan Duckworth Ross Eldridge Case Rice James Hullick Sound Engineers: Michael Hewes James Hullick The Amplified Elephants Ryoko Aoki Recorded at: Kindred Studios JOLTED Art Space RMIT University

staalplaat soundsystem  YOKOMONO live 3-5   Favoriting YOKOMONO live  "delightful wireless symphony” (The wire 2008) The Staalplaat Mono Erosive Surround Sound Installation. The installation is inspired by the experience of driving in a car close to the Funkturm (Radio and TV Tower) in Berlin, passing quickly in and out of different radio signals. The present setup for the YOKOMONO live concert version consists of 10 vinyl killers – toy car record players, each customised with its own fm transmitter. For these killers we made three different loop records (locked groove records) with 55 loop on each side . The sound will come through a set of radios that receives the signal transmitted by the vinyl killers You might think Yokomono is just a DJ set with 10 turntables, and in a way that is correct but in many more ways Yokomono is completely different. First of all; each killer is mono and has pour sound quality, but much more Yokomono is very hard to handle, you can not really select a track or make it stop when you want to, its more putting the needle down blindfolded. The real difference starts when you realise each killer runs on batteries, meaning the speed is unstable and it will slow down during the concert, the fact that the batteries run out will not only effect the speed but it will effect the fm frequency that the killer is transmitting too. …The fact that we transmit with 10 fm transmitters at the same time means that each transmitter is effecting the other. These interference and the unstable media that is transmitting makes the whole set unpredictable and hard to control, making Yokomono unique and adventures. YOKOMONO got at Prix Ars Electronica 2006 a Honorary Mention Digital Musics
