“Internet Topography” by art of failure

Internet Topography 2011 by art of failure.

In Internet Topography, 50Hz audio signals are sent from the exhibition space to Tokyo, then returned within the installation space where we can listen to it. The transmission errors that occur during these streamings are analyzed and then considered as a potential and incomplete layout of the network topography. Similar to a landscape, this digital topography proves to be an unstable organization of patterns, shapes and outlines opening the way to multiple mental representations. This imaginary scope is made perceptible trough an immersive sound and light installation.

Live Stage: Site Reading [us New York, NY]

Composer/performer Pamela Z is leading a fun walk in SoHo called Site Reading, that she created for an organization called “Elastic City”. Originally there were four of these walks scheduled; there are still two remaining, so there’s still time to register and join her on one of them.

The remaining walks are scheduled for this coming Monday (September 26, 2011) and Tuesday (September 27, 2011) at 6:30 pm. Walk Starting Point: 60 Spring St., New York, NY

Composer/performer Pamela Z will lead participants on a walk that creates musical scores from the graphic features (micro and macro) of downtown Manhattan. Participants will form a roving experimental sound and performance ensemble that will interpret and play the neighborhood’s building facades, sidewalk hardware, public art and street markings to make a contrapuntal, chance-based chorus.

Live Stage: EU_tracer [by Minsk]

tracer.jpgEU_tracer – A performance for the Internet and musical instruments :: Thursday, September 22, 2011, 20:30 LPM :: Live Performers Meeting, Ў Gallery, Minsk, Belarus ::

Paweł Janicki’s EU_Tracer is based on specially-designed software that scans Internet traffic, analyzing the interrelations among messages and information and translating them into visual and musical structures.

Data from assorted European Union institutions are changed into visual and musical structures, in ways that relate to the particular geographic location, the quality of the connection and the original improvisation style of the local musician invited to the performance. Internet traffic is thus transformed from institutional information into the building blocks for a work of art. Continue reading
