"The Harald Bode Sound Project seeks to reestablish the sounds and ideas of pioneer electronic instrument designer Harald Bode into a contemporary sound art context. Many of Harald Bode's inventions have been sighted in the history of electronic instrument design, but as of yet, there has not been a clear retrospective of his work or (recently published) critical investigation of his ideas and the impact they have had on contemporary music. Initial steps were undertaken by Carrier Band (Pauline Oliveros, Peer Bode, and Andrew Deutsch) at the Institute of Electronic Art working with Tom Rhea, to begin this project. Pauline Oliveros, Stephen Vitiello, James Fei, Scanner (aka Robin Rimbaud) and Aaron Miller will develop a 2 CD/booklet release of Harald's drawings, technical notes, sound compositions, demo tracks, lectures and contemporary remixes. These elements have been carefully selected and arranged within the context of the publication to make clear Harald's philosophical approach to instrument design, his early works in Germany, his later works in the United states, and his compositional approach to electronic music and timbre. The remix element (Vitiello, Scanner, Carrier Band) hopes to contextualize Harald's music within the contemporary digital domain and initiate new conversations with young composers/experimentalists."
