FM-Scenario – The Listener’s Voice

FM-Scenario – The Listener’s Voice :: June 22 – August 4, 2013 :: ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Lorenzstrasse 19, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.

The inter-media project FM-Scenario – The Listener’s Voice uses the Internet as a production site for generating content for further media – more specifically: radio stations, exhibitions and publications. The project’s starting point comprises Eran Schaerf’s news radio plays from the years 1997 to 2011, as well as new texts. The Listener’s Voice (2002), a fictitious radio station, moderated by a computer program is exemplary of Eran Schaerf’s news radio plays. Here, Schaerf uses the newscast format in order to indicate the relativity of its objectivity claim: newscasts not only describe apparent facts, but allow such coverage to be one narrative account among many.

Live Stage: Deborah Hay [us NYC]

The School of Art at The Cooper Union and Danspace Project present Deborah Hay: A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty :: March 24, 2010; 7:00 pm :: The Great Hall, The Cooper Union, 7 East 7th Street, NYC :: Free admission.

A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty is a performative talk framed around the question “can a formal and stimulating adherence to a prescribed set of hypothetical conditions be seen as choreography even if there is no learned movement?” Hay was a member of a group of experimental artists that was deeply influenced by Merce Cunningham and John Cage. The group, later known as the Judson Dance Theater, became one of the most radical and explosive 20th century art movements. Her ground breaking research and performances continue to influence new generations of artists throughout the world today. Continue reading

What Now? The Imprecise and Disagreeable Aesthetics of Remix

Fibreculture Journal # 15: What Now? The Imprecise and Disagreeable Aesthetics of Remix :: From the Editorial:

It became a minor phenomenon during 2007. By September 2009 it was a virus out of control. Described in Wired as a “popular internet meme” (Wortham, 2008), the obsessive serial mash-up of a key sequence from Oliver Hirschbiegel’s 2004 film of the last days of Adolf Hitler, Der Untergang (The Downfall), is suggestive of the cultural logic of the contemporary formation known as remix. Remix culture is comprised of what could loosely be termed amateurs and professionals engaged in the practice of creatively re-using found material. The distinction is useful in identifying the aesthetic and material differences between dedicated intermedia remix artists (Negativland, Martin Arnold, Craig Baldwin, Soda_Jerk), artists who incorporate elements of remix into a broader audiovisual practice (Philip Brophy, Candice Breitz, Christian Marclay, John Zorn) and the vernacular audio-visual mash-up/remake/dub/scratch aesthetics associated with a broad range of online practices.

“Claiming Its Space: Machinima” by Michael Nitsche

Claiming Its Space: Machinima by Michael Nitsche, Dichtung-Digital #37, 2007:

ABSTRACT: Although machinima has grown exponentially, it remains a largely undefined digital artistic practice in-between existing traditions. Machinima makers freely sample/ combine/ and break elements of traditional media. They “play” their references. This essay does not attempt to fix machinima to any single definition but will identify the intermedia relations to better position machinima into the digital media landscape. The argument will target three main influences: film, television, and theatrical performance. To exemplify these points the essay will discuss exemplary and relevant machinima pieces. It puts emphasis on the real-time aspects in production and play back to highlight the key specifics of this relatively new format.
