SonarMàtica 2009: Mecànics [es Barcelona]

sonar.jpgSonarMàtica 2009: Mecànics :: June 18-20, 2009 :: Barcelona.

Mecànics (the exhibition): Over the past decade, the spread of new digital production tools has led to a democratisation of the artistic process, ranging from the music industry to multimedia art. Home-made recording studios, audiovisual editing programs and online record labels have made projects that used to require major investments easily accessible. Today, the spirit of punk is standard cultural currency.

Becoming the conductor of Roland Olbeter’s robot orchestra, or creating your own musical compositions – simply by moving counters on a board – with the famous interactive table Reactable (Rolling Stone magazine’s Instrument of the Year in 2007), Continue reading

Hackteria & labhacking [de Berlin]

hackteria.jpgHackteria & labhacking with Marc R. Dusseiller & Kaspar Koenig :: May 30 – June 3, 2009; 12:00 – 6:00 pm daily :: NK, ElsenStr. 52 (2.Hof) Berlin, Germany :: Course Participation fee: 100 euros :: Registration required (limited to 16) — email enka_nkATgmxDOTde

Experimental make-workshop with multilayered outcome for people interested in sound, DIY-biology, microscopy and interaction of living microorganisms. Knowledge in physical computing, video and sound processing, electronics and puredata is welcome, but not compulsary. The experiments will take place in close-up view of microorganisms (e.g. water bears aka tardigrades, amoebae and collected organisms from urban environments), which appears to be a world by itself. Maybe due to the scaling and the amplification of a microscope, but maybe also due to all parameters of imagination that the microcosmos provokes. Growth and behaviour of these microscopic animals remind us of our own micro-macro-development. Continue reading
