This does not mean that the performance has to be participatory, but that it touches shared experiences of people. It should titillate memories of the body and mind.

The piece consists of the melodies of these selected folk songs. For ages, songs for/about/with rivers have been sung; I imagined that “the water” that runs through all rivers and circulates over the planet had memory and remembered all these songs sung for them by the people. Those songs heard in the vocal track, that are “remembered” in parts, all together create a “river of remembered songs”. Composer, voice: ESIN GÜNDÜZ © 2009 daytime inspiration.

20) You Wanna Go
Choreography: Lucia Tong
Performed by: Lucia Tong
Composed by: Reconsiderate
Lucia Tong is a freelance dance artist and choreographer based in London. Studying Chinese Dance from a young age and a former member of the Hong Kong National Rhythmic Gymnastics Team, Lucia was introduced to contemporary dance while earning her B.Sc. in Environmental Science at the University of California, Berkeley.

Reconsiderate has been in love with music since time immemorable. He started off in his grade school band as a young'n, and has since moved on to create his own music via his computer, vocals and even the occasional live instruments. At the moment, Reconsiderate’s work exists exclusively in the medium of recorded audio, and likely will continue that way for the forseeable future. He supports (and is honored to participate in) Vox Novus’s annual 60 x 60 series as it is an avenue for true art, the likes of which are to be found nowhere else.
Seemingly uncertain and perhaps a bit clumsy, "You Wanna Go" stumbles about like a drunken oaf in constant need of regaining his balance. But beware! Beneath the façade lie a firm form and strong structure, supporting the ready mind you may have underestimated.

One of the strangest, most interesting, and most useful things that computers do for us as composers is that they allow us to blend sounds from completely disparate worlds. Indigenous instruments, sometimes sampled from performers in remote and undeveloped cultures, can be mixed with western instruments, sounds from popular culture, industrial noise, and synthetic sounds. This inevitably creates sonic spaces that are culturally and geographically ambiguous or even contradictory. While this ambiguity has been exploited extensively within the context of film and game scoring, the cultural contrasts are often more exposed in purely sonic works ' leading the listener to wonder "Where Am I This Time?".

(Isaiah 6:6-7) "Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal from the altar; he touched my mouth with it." Six Wings North, an impressionistic sound-scape hinting of wings, atmospheric marvels, beautiful cool fire, ritual cleansing and inter-dimensional transformation.

French dancer, teacher and choreographer, Claude Aymon was born in Marseilles but is originally from South America. Since 1999, when he created his own company c2a, his work has been presented at many festivals all around the world.

“outside for a minute” starts with a recording of traffic and birds. These sounds were recorded outside my apartment at mid-day. I then use heavy noise filtering, time expansion, editing and granular synthesis to reveal the layers of sound that create the background noise I often ignore.

Kutiah Ice is a piece about pressure and it's beautiful effects. Kutiah is a glacier in Pakistan that grew faster than any other in the world. This piece is rich in overtones and layers of electronics screaming as if they have barely enough space to coexist together. In the end the pressure of the ice is so great the glacier must expand and push out all possible air bubbles. A brilliant hue of blue is created.

“Omaggio a Velazquez” is inspired by the genius of Velazquez who represents things as they appear, reducing them to “spots of colour” which, in the electroacoustic composition, are represented by instrumental quotations whose function is to describe in music his art free from the most dramatic and flamboyant aspects of Baroque.

“The Night in Taiwan” - With a boisterous atmosphere, "The Night in Taiwan" describes crowd night markets in Taiwan on holidays. Night market is a place with peddlers which sell various foods or host different games. People in night markets create an interesting unique soundscape.

"Think-Tank" is an abstract concept but sound strikes an image in the minds eye and tells a funny story although you don't know why. The thoughts that come alive and go flying out the door, collecting and recycling and they are multiplying. Bold machinery cold, unstoppable and certain not to fail, but they have no idea, and the mighty ticking clock could cause them to derail.
41) Molasses
Choreography: Lucía Piquero Álvarez
Performed by: Monica Harrington, Kate Hodder, Lisa Maiello & Lucia Piquero
Composed by: Kevin Kissinger
Diciembre Dance Group was founded in 2008 by Lucía Piquero to bring together artists from different backgrounds and disciplines with the aim of using dance as a tool for expression. Since then, DDG has grown to include co-directors Sara Accettura and Lisa Maiello, and composer Alberto García.
Kevin Kissinger is an electronic musician and classically-trained organist from Kansas City, Mo. His interest in electronic music started in the 1960s when he worked with electronic project kits, a Hammond Organ, and whatever tape recorders he could get his hands on. In the 1970s, Kevin built a large modular synthesizer. Kevin built his first theremin in 2005 and acquired a Moog Theremin shortly thereafter. Since that time, Kevin has created many compositions for the theremin and performs throughout the USA. Kevin earned a BMus degree in Organ Performance from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Conservatory of Music.
"Molasses" is a multi-track theremin work that creates the sound of a theremin-ensemble. The inventor of the theremin, Leon Theremin, envisioned complete theremin orchestras. However, attempts at large theremin ensembles didn't work out too well -- the instruments' radio-frequency oscillators interfered with each other and, lacking keyboards, fretboards, or any tactile references, the thereminists had difficulty to hear themselves and play in tune. "Mollasses" utilizes multiple tracks -- fifteen of them -- to create a theremin ensemble sound that Theremin himself could only imagine.

43) The Unbearable Being of Likeness
Choreography: Karou Mendy
Performed by: Karou Mendy
Composed by: Doug Opel
After 3 years of researches and training, and a 3 months intensive training trip to New York in 2009, Karou is now fully trained in Waacking (funk style from the 1970's). Her main knowledge and root understanding was from her private tutorials from Legendary dancers such as Archie Burnett, Alyssa Britteramos, Tyrone Proctor and more.
Doug Opel explores amalgamations of contemporary, rock, jazz, pop and electronica to develop a compositional language that is at once, dark and humorous, controlled and chaotic, classical and contemporary. A recipient of the 2003 Copland Award, his works have been performed by The Duquesne Contemporary Ensemble, Vision of Sound, Keys to the Future, the American Modern Ensemble and many others extensively at venues throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, Chile, France, Spain, Slovenia and extensively in the United States. Commissions include works for the Definiens Project, bass-baritone Timothy Jones, pianists Nicola Melville and Robert Satterlee, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic & MATA. Broadcasts include the CBC, WMBC, WFMT and WCNY & WKCR and WRTI.
"The Unbearable Being of Likeness" is an exploration of a pet peeve of mine: the evolution and thriving art of text speak and the slaughter of conventional language in general. The use of an intentionally distorted and overly-repetitive orchestral lick creates a sort of shell-shocking backdrop for fragments of texting translations, coupled with reactions that are all too genuine.
44) New York
Choreography: Intrinsic Dance Company
Performed by: Joycelyn Chung, Patrice Cotter, Zy Estrella & Vineta Mitchell
Composed by: Rob Voisey
Intrinsic Dance Company formed in August 2008. The founder members came together to explore the amalgamation of each individual’s unique style. Since forming, Intrinsic have performed at venues such as, the Royal Festival Hall, Stratford Circus and Jacksons Lane. Their appearances have ranged from, charity events, choreographic platforms and community festivals. Intrinsic Dance Company was originally created so as to give the four founding members the opportunity to passionately explore their own choreographic ideas. The dancers come from a varied background of dance and theatre. Most find it difficult to label this company because they attempt to seamlessly fuse various styles in their choreography. Their experience in contemporary dance is of vital importance when it comes to structuring their pieces. This device, juxtaposed with, contemporary techniques, mattox jazz and elements of hip hop dance has led to their work being described as “indicative of Hip-Hop theatre” (Michelle Harris, July 2009). All four founder members of Intrinsic have had training in Mattox Jazz and made a collective decision to make elements of this technique evident in their stylisation. They feel that it is very unfortunate that other people/dancers are unfamiliar with this genre and so this is Intrinsic’s unique way of keeping it alive. Although Intrinsic have experience in dance for camera/film, they are passionate about live theatre and performance.
“With few opportunities and much competition, young composers show creativity in just getting heard.” And in Chris Pasles’s article in the Los Angeles Times, Robert Voisey is highlighted as one of those composers. Besides his compositions, Voisey is also known for directing the 60x60 project and co-directing the Composer’s Voice concert series in New York City.
Rob Voisey at Vox Novus
"New York" is part of a series created for Jon Nelson’s 50/50, another miniature project composed of 50 second sound collages. This sound collage juxtaposes classical instruments juxtaposed with ethnic samples and has a 10 second tail to fill the 60 seconds.

Feature films, network and cable television, animated series, commercials, promos and beyond: as the creator of sonic imprints for an expansive range of high profile projects, Craig Marks’ comprehensive musical expertise is reflected in his extraordinary eclecticism. Ethnic music, orchestral scores, rock, electronic and rhythmic textures -- Marks is a master of unlikely juxtaposition, from Steinways to Stratocasters; bassoons to buzz saws.

CompuIntroMusic (A Short Ride on the NeXT Machine) is a gamelan-type signature piece, that does all the things I really 60 seconds. It has repeated, syncopated cross-rhythms (similar to a Steve Reich piece), processed sampled sounds (similar to a Paul Lansky piece), and algorithms, using permutations of a diatonic hexachord. In all, nearly four dozen sampled sounds are processed, ranging from saw blades to actual Sundanese gamelan instruments, and mixed together in over 10000 "notes". It was realised, as the name implies, on an old NeXT computer, way back when...

I'm a composer and programmer from Toronto. My current focus is creating and performing with Max/MSP/Jitter. Under the name Rocky G I have released several albums of techno and dance oriented material. Visit my website at
The impetus for “r0r” was a Max/MSP patch floating around the internet supposedly written by glitch pioneers Autechre. At the suggestion of my composer friend Matt LeBlanc, I reverse engineered the patch and rewrote it as multichannel program that could potentially be used for live performance. It turned out to be too complex for live use, but was good for generating material in the studio.

"My starting point was naïvely experimenting with old guitar pedals. Pulling the power out and sampling the noise, plugging the output back into the input and listening to my pedals scream. A teenage love of all things Crackle, Zip and Bleep. Pretty quickly I found out about computers, and their boisterous potential. Studying Max/MSP and contemporary composition at Kingston University taught me new ways to experience and create new music. I became extremely interested in programming and orchestration, since then I've had works performed at New Music Festivals in Texas, New York and London and toured all over the UK and Europe. Contrast has been a running theme through my work; soft melodic guitars with harsh noisy synths and tones, loud vs. quite, cluttered vs. sparse. I like to make music that surprises me and keeps me on my toes.."
"Crunching Snow" is a piece was written when London was under a thick blanket of snow, the worst in 28 years they say. Being snowed in has its advantages, like having lots of time to work on music and perhaps this track would never have been finished without our spectacular snowfall. This piece experiments with a drum beat that sounds like it was falling asleep then waking up again, robotic in texture, but perhaps malfunctioning. It is juxtaposed with live instruments – Guitar, Xylophone, Melodica, Glockenspiel and Hand Bells.

Sean Archibald
Paul trained professionally as a dancer at arts educational schools. He now runs an established salsa club and school in west London with some of the best teachers/dancers in the UK. Paul likes to make his partners spin, so Watch out for a fast and spinny minute, LA Style!
Sean Archibald is a drum'n'bass and electronic-music composer from the UK. He uses microtones as they offer more intensity and possibility. He is a student and has released two EPs and two albums online, under the name Sevish. This piece uses glitches which interrupt the rhythm, plus vocal samples.
Looking at equal divisions of various non-octaves, Sean found a scale which closely matches some useful intervals like minor third, major third, neutral third, fifth and octave... that scale is "18 divisions of the 11/7." What's left after the discovery? Just to compose! "See Now" is the result of using this new scale. However the middle piano section uses Wendy Carlos' "Alpha" scale.
52) don't wake me up
Choreography: Colleen Bartley
Performed by:
Composed by: Jacky Schreiber
Colleen has been dancing and for over 15 years in various forms and working with movement, coaching people, writing about dance, filming and collaborating with other artists. She trained at Laban on the Community Course and in the us at Swarthmore college. Since then Colleen has been based in London and is working with indepedent artists in the UK. “I have focused on listening in to what the body has to say. What unique stories does it tell? I am influenced by dance, yoga, bodywork, contact improvisation, walking, visual art, video and photography and deep ecology. I use authentic movement to tune into the body and a range of other techniques to hone into the body's natural rhythms and movements and to respond in the moment intuitively. As a choreographer I always consider the performers as collaborators in the creation of movement material. Making work that allows tells stories through the body and through relationship between dancers, space and sound-other materials are always used in the creation and sometimes realization of the work. It is vital to create material that is not just pretty movement but speaks of something through the body. Often, raw movement is more potent than exquisite virtuosity. The collaborative aspect of the work invites a level of integrity that gives audience access to deeper levels of engagement.”
Jacky Schreiber studied electroacoustic music composition with Eduardo Kusnir at Conservatorio Nacional de Musica Juan Jose Landaeta in Caracas, Venezuela. His electroacoustic works have been performed in concerts and festivals in usa, latin america and europe, some of his chamber and orchestral works have received the national composition prize, for the past 20 years he has written music for tv, theater plays and dance.
53) Gestalt-n-Pepa
Choreography: Darren Panton & Shevelle Dynott
Performed by: Darren Panton & Shevelle Dynott
Composed by: Dry Heeves
Panton & Dynott "the BritBoyz of Ballet” was created by two Royal Ballet dancers – Darren Panton & Shevelle Dynott - whose concept was to make ballet cool enjoyable and accessible for children from all cultural backgrounds. Coming from diverse and troubled backgrounds they’ve had to overcome hardship and poverty to show that not all young black males choose a life of crime. Darren grew up in West London council estate with his five brothers, after getting into trouble with the police at young age he decided to turn his life around and make a life for his self in dance. Shevelle grew up in Brixton and was in and out of trouble and spent time sleeping rough on the streets until by chance, dance entered his life and changed it for the good. Now Darren and Shevelle have both decided to take dance back to the streets and hopefully inspire other youngsters that there are other routes in life other than crime.
Emanating from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia (Canada), The Dry Heeves are cultural analysts who use music (e.g. rock / world / electronic / experimental / avant-garde) as their dissemination medium of choice.

“Gestalt-n-Pepa” is gestalt philosophy as seen thru the eyes of a 'dance' outfit (à la Salt-n-Pepa) with doctorates up the yin-yang. The whole may be greater than the sum of its parts but so is the hole.

60x60's guiding themes of concision and disparity inspired me to move one step further and create a work consisting of sixty one-second pieces. This required a quick succession of only the barest seeds of ideas, juxtaposing different styles, timbres, spaces, instrumentation, and dynamics; the result is frenetic, disorienting, and engaging.

"180" was composed with the use of echo / delays. Working extensively with timed echoes, to see if it was possible to build different textures up; within a set tempo. Also used are Fibonacci and golden ratio principles within the composition. Various Delays are set to fractions based on the Tempo and Fibonacci sequence of numbers available to use; within the musical context. The result is what you hear. Various guitars were used – both acoustic and electric; and “treated” through the Eventide studio Delay / Echo units.
