It turns out that Milica Paranosic, who created the piece “Boyana” for one of our first U-GRUVE AR installations in 2016, teaches the Advanced Composition course at The Juilliard School’s Evening Division, and late last year she asked if we'd be interested in having U-GRUVE serve as a central component of the class. Of course we were flattered and delighted, and quickly agreed to the proposition.

The course, which started on March 6 (yesterday!), meets four times, and is structured so that the students will first compose and record three minutes of music per Ms. Paranosic’s orchestration rules, and then will further edit/tweak the resulting audio for integration in U-GRUVE AR, using the Lincoln Center Plaza location as the installation site.

Each student will have their own piece represented in the app, with the pieces going “live” on March 27th, the evening of the last class. The class will hold a group sound walk in conjunction with New York SoundWalkers, a Meetup created and organized by Memetic Arts founder / U-GRUVE AR creator Richard Rodkin.

This will add four new pieces to the Lincoln Center site, where we've had Barbara J Weber's "Orela" installed since U-GRUVE AR launched in May of 2016 as part of the first Creative Tech Week.

We’re really thrilled to be participating in the class in this capacity. . . many, many thanks to Milica for reaching out and making this happen! We're excited to see what these four talented composers come up with!

Watch (and “like”) the U-GRUVE AR page to keep up to date on this and other U-GRUVE AR events planned for this Spring.

Greetings everyone, it's been a while! But that's because we've been heads-down getting ready to release our next U-GRUVE AR update, which will just happen to coincide with New York Creative Tech Week (May 12-21, 2017).

It also happens that we've again been accepted by CTW as a partner, with two planned satellite events, and we're super-pscyhed!

Stay tuned for more info/posts as we prepare for this amazing festival that celebrates computational art and the many ways that the New York art scene is using technology as a vital element of the expressive palette.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

A general shout-out and Happy New Year to everyone that I’ve had the pleasure of working with this past year, particularly the artists, composers, musicians, and creative technologists who have contributed to, and supported, the production of U-GRUVE AR (U-GRUVE), which launched earlier this year. Releasing this app was a major step towards realizing a vision that I’ve had, as many of you know, for a very long time. That it is now “out there”, and is receiving such good feedback, is truly rewarding.

I'd like to especially thank the composers who contributed to the project, because obviously, the app would be nothing without their amazing pieces. So, many many many thanks to:

Michael Durek / TheUse, Dafna Naphtali, Milica Paranosic, Jesse Stiles, Norville Parchment, Mick Sussman, and Barbara Weber

Thank you for your fantastic work, honest feedback, and continued support. I wish you all a happy, healthy, and fulfilling year ahead! I think 2017 is going to be great, and I look forward to working together again!

We're very happy to announce that our application to produce a new u-gruve installation in collaboration with Dafna Naphtali for the inaugural session of the NoiseGate Festival was accepted!

The festival, which is being hosted by ÆON Music Ensemble and produced in partnership with NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Harvestworks, the United Nations Global Arts Initiative, and more, is focused on bringing attention to "spatial and urban noise pollution 'in 3D' via Data-Driven, Art-Driven, Community-Driven efforts".

We thought that this was an ideal opportunity for a U-GRUVE installation, and after talking to Dafna, who also shares deep interests in location-based/eco-driven music, we decided to apply for entry. And now that we're "in", we're truly looking forward to working with Dafna, whose performances and compositions we've found to be deeply inspiring.

The festival runs from 21-25 September, so this is going to come together rather quickly; be sure to check the u-gruve FB page and u-gruve.com for the latest information about the installation.

u-gruve Guide for Composers Is Now Available | u-gruve.com

u-gruve is rolling, and Studio-M is picking up steam.

"Getting Started with u-gruve™ and Aleatoric, Location-driven Music Systems: A Guide for Composers" is now available to all composers who are actively contributing to or who have applied for membership in Studio-M.

More info on our dev blog here:

Since I first started talking to composers about contributing music for u-gruve, it became very apparent that while the basic concepts were clear, the overall approach to writing indeterminate, site-specific music was not.
