La Monte Young / Composition 1960 #7Don't forget to celebrate Art's Birthday tomorrow! As part of this year's festivities, our Director Karen Correia da Silva is part of a collaborative generative audio stream of La Monte Young's "Composition 1960 #7" with seventeen other artists from around the globe. This audio stream is a performance of La Monte Young's piece Composition 1960 #7.  Artists at different locations around the world recorded the piece on a variety of instruments. The combined sounds are re-sequenced in software to create an endless audio stream/ an ever changing version of the piece. Listen on NoiseArtRadio at the link below. Thanks to Peter Courtemanche, the Western Front Society artist-run centre, and Kunstradio Austria for supporting the network! Happy Art's Birthday!

Not familiar with Art's Birthday? From ArtsBirthday.net:

"Art's Birthday" is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou.

He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Modest beginnings, but look at us now.

Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world. Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art.

Artists have celebrated Art's Birthday with lavish parties and gatherings, correspondence and mailart, and through Telematic networks using SloScan TV, Videophones, music composed for telephone lines, modem-to-modem MIDI connections, early bulletin board and chat systems, and (starting in the mid 1990's) the Internet.
