Review

THE MOBILE INTERACTIVE COMPUTER ENSEMBLE - MICE WORLD TOUR (CD by EcoSono) In this case MICE is short for The Mobile Interactive Computer Ensemble, which lists a whole bunch of names, about twenty-one in fact, and they are an 'innovative sonic arts ensemble using networked computers and interactive acoustics'. They have played all around the world, using their laptops and a variety of instruments and sound sources, sand sources even. Sandprints has a nice, poppy touch to it. An electro-dance piece with great childlike rhythms. Great! World Strings processes all sorts of string instruments together in quite a nice piece. Quite a varied album. --Vital Weekly, Netherlands

In 2009 MICE traveled around the world as a small ensemble of performers. From this trip, the group reports a series of very beautiful "ecoacoustic" compositions. Traveling 30,000 miles by boat The "Mobile Interactive Computer Ensemble explores various world cultures and environments. Under the leadership of composer and performer, Matthew Burtner, MICE explores a form Interactive Music focused on human and computer interaction. Rapidly expanding this genre MICE interaction include network technologies, artificial intelligence systems and performance-based gestural controllers. In 2009, MICE, group variable geometry starts a journey around the globe. From these meetings with various traditional musicians, the group reported a series of ecoacoustic compositions collected on MICE World Tour. The album includes performances created in the Namibian Desert, in Cape Town South Africa, in the howling wind in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, in India, China, using the submarine sounds of the Indian Ocean, and a lava in Guatemala. The musical journey ends with a final piece based on untreated sounds from radio broadcasts. The environment stimulates the imagination! --Sonhours, France

"Curious and striking...could serve as a healing music, so relaxing, soothing, yet elevated and artistically sounding a playful note. It is inspired and exhilarating. The use of natural sounds is not cliche and nothing is dance/ambient", despite the computer drones or percussion rhythms. The sounds push and push and swing slowly and relax there. Folk and jazz weave themselves among the sensitive natural soundscapes, and folklore yields to sounds, voices and samples. Yet no music in the traditional sense can be heard here. Rather, an impressive audio noise builds, one that casts its spell and displaces any crisis, any stress. There is no kitsch harmony, no release, and no commonplace chumming. MICE plays real, real music for the mind and body." --Ragazzi Magazine, Germany
