Generating Randomness

rand()%, in partnership with The Media Centre, Huddersfield (UK), is pleased to announce the first in a series of commissioned generative audio works. The idea was to commission new works specific to rand()% which explore randomness and generative music composition.

The first commission is from Alku and comes in the form of several works tying together their Formatissimo series and culminating in their installation e+ included in our rand()%lab exhibition. ALKU: Formatissimo I+II, e+ http://www.r4nd.org/c_alku.html

The second commissioned piece is by Dextro. This includes several modified pieces from the recently released Dextro: A / Turux – b CDRom and a new automatic work entitled m000.dxr.DEXTRO: m108_rand_A, m108_rand_B, m108_rand_D, m000.dxr http://www.r4nd.org/c_dextro.html.

To hear these works please check the daily schedule.

Emerging Infrastructures of All (Inter)net Research

Dr. Reinhold Grether’s network research | netzwissenschaft site maps the “emerging infrastructures of all (inter)net research endeavours. net.science as an anthropology of connectivity is trying to overcome the constraints of specialist method transfers on net matters. the protuberance of technical networks necessitates a professionalization of human net knowledge. neither the isolation of concepts as in basic research nor the encapsulation of processes as in applied sciences will ever be able to adequately describe the complex autopoiesis of networks. net.science is undoubtedly developing into a scienza nuova of its own right.”

Sky Orchestra

balloon_orch_logo.gif

Nocturnal Audio Landscapes

The Sky Orchestra project, by UK artist Luke Jerram–in collaboration with hot air balloon pilot Peter Dalby and composer Dan Jones–is an ongoing research project that explores how one can perceive an artistic experience while asleep. It is an experimental artwork bringing together performance and music to create visual audio installations within the air and within the mind.

Sky Orchestra are developing music specifically for sleeping people which is delivered out of the sky. Seven hot air balloons, each with speakers attached, take off at dawn to fly across a city. Each balloon plays a different element of the musical score creating a massive audio landscape. “Like whales calling in the ocean, the same sounds may be heard in quick succession passing from one balloon to another across the sky…”

Many hundreds of people experience the Sky Orchestra event live as the balloons fly over their homes at dawn. The airborne project is both a vast spectacular performance as well as an intimate, personal experience. The music is audible, both consciously and subconsciously, to all those in the balloonís flight paths. After each performance leaflets are delivered to homes and shops along the flight path and responses collected by email. A radio phone-in, is also arranged. The feedback affects the on-going development of the composition. (via near near future)

OFFLINE

netjamm.gif

Net Jamm

Outside the frame of the exhibition and for the opening of Unzipping Codes, the net jamm performance will be led by the members of the group OFFLINE, Brian Mackern, ArcŠngel Consantini, and Fernando Llanos. They will mix live inputs from the internet provided by themselves or OFFLINE colleagues that will resemble a mixture of DJ and VJ procedures while revealing the unstable nature of digital reality.

OFFLINE is a cross-border global group of artist collaborators working creatively with the Internet and related digital and networked media. The purpose of OFFLINE is to bring together online art practitioners and creative technical consultants for collaborative projects staged at real world locales such as art and music festivals, symposiums, cafeterias, rooftops and city streets. OFFLINE projects will take the form of live performances, installations, and diverse experimental augmented reality displays. OFFLINE is organized via an online mailing list and a central server.

Summoned Voices

SummoningStonesPict0.jpg

Interactionfields

Summoned Voices–by Iain Mott and Marc Raszewski–acts as a living memory of people and place. It consists of a series of door installations each with an intercom, sound system and a computer that is networked to a central file and database server. The design metaphor of the door presents a familiar scenario, that of announcing oneself at a doorway and waiting for a response from persons unknown. Signage instructs the public to speak, make sounds or sing into the intercom. Their voice is stored and interpreted, and results in local playback composed of the individual’s voice with those that have gone before. Summoned Voices acts as an interpreter of sound, a message board and an imprint of a community – a place for expression, reflection and surprise.

Summoned Voices is one of the 22 projects catalogued by Mirjam Struppek for her thesis Interactionfield – Public Space in the Digital Age (2002): “The public space is a field, which is created and becomes alive through various forms of interaction.

researching mobile strategies of display & mediation

msdm [mobile strategies of display & mediation] is an imaginary organisation founded in 1998 by paula roush to research mobile strategies of display & mediation. A hybrid of artistic, curatorial, experimental practice operating in the interstices of institutions and social systems, the organisation aims to propose participatory alliances for transversal, critical, cultural and aesthetic outputs. The collaborations have extended into the domains of open source software, publishing, para-architecture, public signage, radio streaming and mobile media platforms. They have been shown in galleries, museums, non governmental organisations and independent spaces, including Space Studios, Coleman Project Space, The South London Gallery, the Institute of International Visual Arts, the Bauhaus Foundation, Gesellschaft fur Aktuelle Kunst and the Living Art Museum.

Simultaneous Translation – A Networked Collaboration

uunet_global_99_small.gif

Distance and Time Through the Lens of Streaming Media

Friday December 17 & Sunday January 16, 2004; Madrid, Spain 20:00 (19:00 Greenwich Mean Time. 2PM Eastern Standard Time); Concert and live internet audio stream. Developed by John Roach with Miguel Ramos and Willy Whip Performers: Carlo Giordani, John Hudak, The Same Room Left, James Rouvelle, Mike Rosenthal, John Roach & Miguel Ramos.

Simultaneous Translation is an international networked performance that draws connections between language and the internet. Just as language has changed over time and as dialects have evolved as groups of people moved geographically from place to place, so in this project, live sound will be effected by time and distance. Audio created by the participants in Madrid, the US, Germany and Italy, will be broadcast live on the internet. [Related]

.ran [real audio netliterature]

05_12_04.gif

Automatically Generated Authorship

In five parts, the series .ran [real audio netliterature] – curated by Johannes Auer – will pick up various approaches of net literature (code, montage/collage, authorship, text-image-(sound) indifference, reference systems) and try to apply them to the medium radio. The current panorama is sketched out approximately by presenting 5 different positions.

December 5, 2004, 23:05-23:45, KUNSTRADIO: .ran part 2: “Authorship and its automatic generating” by Cornelia Sollfrank and Timothy Didymus: along with the possibility of technical reproduction provided by the printing machine the individualization of authorship came in the 18th century, as well as the invention of copyright. During the 20th century, a diversity of artistic attemps was undertaken in order to deconstruct individual authorship and the implied ideas about geniality and originality.

Public Voices Thrown Into the Flow

From Audiohyperspace: “Emergie_Passagen: Reading and (De)Scribing the City” – so the subtitle of this interactive audiovisual installation, which [could] be experienced until November 29th on Munich’s Salvator Place. The installation understands a city’s public speech – its inhabitants’ chatting, the language of politics and media – as diverse streams of energy, from which an architecture is taking shape. The latter is made audible and visible by the art work. Every evening between 6 and 10 p.m. the square in Munich’s city center is becoming a place, where a mediated, up-to-date intellectual-political milieu is emerging. The installation is mainly dealing with the interactive generation of semantic connections. A process, which can be initiated by every single passer-by and whose principles can be followed very well online.
