Lampo: Magic Matrix Mixer Mountain

LAMPO – 216 W. CHICAGO AVE, 2ND FL, CHICAGO, ILL.
SATURDAY JUNE 6 – 9PM

Mark Beasley, jonCates, Jake Elliott, Alex Inglizian, Tamas Kemenczy, Nicholas O’Brien and Jon Satrom will collaboratively build a MAGIC MATRIX MIXER MOUNTAIN in Lampo on JUNE 6 2009. Cobbled together from broken computers, functional microphones, surveillance cameras, local feedback loops and international communication networks, this MAGIC MATRIX MIXER MOUNTAIN rises up from foothills and climbs skywards. Audio, video and datastreams flow up and down from the mountain. Each foothill is a self-contained system (artist) that sends tributary audio, video and data via a matrix of mixer connections. All these streams are sources mixed in realtime into a multi-channel audio and video landscape.

During the performance and installation at Lampo, five of the artists will build the MAGIC MATRIX MIXER MOUNTAIN on-site while two are connected remotely via the Internet. All of the artists (foothills) will feedback and feedforward to expose the graceful musicality of faulty technologies. Decoding and rebugging digital media, the MAGIC MATRIX MIXER MOUNTAIN will exist for one night only but will be accompanied by an operator’s instruction manual, to be written, arranged and printed live in realtime along with the performance of the audio, video and datastreams.

Installed and performed live in Lampo, the MAGIC MATRIX MIXER MOUNTAIN began through a collaborative process of free association and deep-linked metaphors online. A nonverbal montage of images, animations and videos posted to a group blog documents this process:

COLLECTIVE CV SUMMARY:

Collectively, our collaborative projects have or will be show or presented internationally in Mexico City, Mexico; Madrid, Spain; Montreal, Canada; Linz, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic; Paris, France; Beijing, China; nationally in cities such as Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago; and online on New Media Art platforms such as Rhizome.org, Furtherfield.org, Turbulence and Networked_Performance. We have organized spaces, events and platforms such as dai5ychain, dorkbot Chicago, r4WB1t5, BUSKER, HARDCoded, Chicago Hackmeetings, [FRAY], The Upgrade! Chicago and Version Festivals (02, 03 and 04). We are on faculty, teaching or have taught at The School of the Art Institute, Columbia College, Marwen and Street Level Youth Media.

Mark Beasley is an artist/educator making software, video, performance and web art.

Jon Cates makes, organizes and teaches experimental New Media Art, including Art Games, Machinima, Computer Witchcraft, digitalPunk and Noise musics.

Jake Elliott is a cyberpsychedelic artware engineer. This is not a metaphor.

Alex Inglizian is a sound designer, experimental musician, computer programmer, electronic technician, and educator. Inspired by broken radios, children’s toys, and vintage synthesizers.

Tamas Kemenczy branches and merges interactive fiction, the demoscene and programmable spells.

Nicholas O’Brien is a media maker and educator interested in the relationship between identity and virtual constructs such as memory, architecture and cyberspace.

Jon Satrom performs real-time audio/video, databends multimedia computer files, and creates colorful glitch-ware. He spends his days fixing things and teaching. He spends his evenings breaking things and learning.

Curator’s Statement

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The 2009 exhibition has grown out of three years of background work which commenced in 2006. It adds an engagement in the environment to the festival’s now perennial themes of society, technology and the city.

Artists here avoid cliches and address environmental sustainability in ways both forceful and irreverent. Eva Meyer-Keller re-enacts catastrophic weather scenarios using household objects in Handmade, and Kim Abeles’ exhibits commemorative plates with images of U.S. presidents, created by exposing the plates to an amount of smog proportional to their environmental records.

Futuresonic has developed a social engagement within its art programme, and in Beuys’ Acorns by Ackroyd and Harvey this resonates within a wider art historical tradition. Installing 250 oak saplings grown from artist Joseph Beuys’ acorns, they revisit his notion of social sculpture, where the artist is asking dangerous questions, seeking to change the social order.

The exhibition includes artworks which are purely aesthetic, such as Janine Randerson’s compelling film Rorschach Clouds, artworks which are conceived directly as social interventions, such as the urban gardening projects of Prayas Abhinav in Petpuja, as well as pieces which arise out of a sustained engagement and dialogue between artists and scientists such as the work of Andrea Polli.

A focus on participatory artworks continues, with a public recital of the most recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) coordinated by Amy Balkin, an art device for prospecting for oil in the city centre by Jon Cohrs, and a number of large scale, participatory mass observation projects on climate and biodiversity by Futuresonic with the Met Office and Natural History Museum.

Elin Wikstršm introduces us to wheelchair tag rugby in a conceptual art event and exhibition in which the drama and brutality of the game offers a metaphor for the invasion of non-native species of plants and animals in the year of Darwin’s bicentenary, and also a celebration of the sporting prowess of the disabled wheelchair rugby players prior to London 2012.

Several artworks make visible and tangible the outcomes of our actions at a local level, including aesthetic and conceptual design objects by Usman Haque and Megan MacMurray & Angela Pablo, and documentation of HeHe’s award winning Nuage Vert projecting energy usage onto a powerstation vapour cloud.

Across the Art Programme artists explore other themes, including a number of sound art projects, centred on an important exhibition by Yamaha and Royal College of Art. Futuresonic 2009’s focal point is, however, very much this year in seeking to open an original engagement in the environment, with projects which aim to provoke and inspire.

STRP Festival presents RE: le Poème Electronique: a symposium about a contemporary muse

STRP Festival presents RE: le Poème Electronique: a symposium about a contemporary muse

The STRP Festival is a multidisciplinary all-out experience of art, music and technology taking place 2 – 13 April in Eindhoven (the Netherlands). During every edition of STRP, special attention is paid to a theme that focuses on Eindhoven and the relationship between creativity and technology under the “RE:” banner. This year, RE: is dedicated to the 1958 work of art Le Poème Électronique.

In 1956 Philips commissioned the renowned architect Le Corbusier to build a pavilion for the World’s Fair in Brussels. Le Corbusier wished to avoid designing yet another industrial exhibit and told Philips that he would create an “electronic poem” about the technological development of mankind. Together with composer Edgar Varèse, architect Iannis Xenakis and cinematographer Philippe Agostini, Le Corbusier developed a spectacular work of art in which light, sound, film and architecture merge to form a revolutionary multimedia spectacle. STRP will host a symposium on this remarkable cultural legacy, which was created in Eindhoven’s NatLab.

Five hundred visitors gather inside the futuristic pavilion at the World’s Fair. The excitement is palpable. While an introductory text is projected on the wall, oscillating sounds issue from the left and right from hidden speakers. A nude female mannequin at the top of the ceiling lights up as ultraviolet lights flashed across the diagonal side walls. The audience is startled by the weird electronic sounds cascading over them from somewhere far off in the distance in the pavilion. A series of abstract light patterns and graphic images and photographs of monkeys, birds, skeletons, explosions and babies alternate as the soundscape seems to continue moving along the walls of the tent-like structure. After eight minutes, the lights go out and everything is quiet. The dazzled spectators stumble out through the exit doors, making way for the next group of curious World’s Fair visitors.

Le Poème Électronique tells the story of mankind and the quest for harmony in an ever-increasingly technological society. In the mid-1950s, technology is a source of hope, inspiration and optimism. At home, families gather around the radio or the black and white TV set. In the streets, the first affordable cars cruise around. In space, the Russians launch Sputnik, the first satellite. At Philips’ Natuurkundig Laboratorium (Natlab) in Eindhoven, in addition to developing new electronic appliances, which include an honest to goodness colour TV, the future of music is taking shape, too. Using huge tape recorders, reels, mixing boards and homemade electronic instruments, pioneers such as Dick Raaijmakers, Tom Dissevelt and Henk Badings create new electronic music. This technical playground in Strip-S is where the composer Varèse spent several months working with the Natlab technicians on Le Poème Électronique presented in the mathematically constructed pavilion at the World’s Fair.

Today, Le Poème Électronique is more popular than ever. Books and documentaries are being made, reenactments are being discussed, and the experience is being reproduced with new, virtual technologies. The questions arise what le Poème Électronique means today. What story does the Gesammtkunstwerk tell us? What are the underlying ideals about mankind and technology? How is Le Poème Électronique being used today as source of inspiration? What kind of story should a contemporary Le Poème Électronique tell us about mankind and it’s increasing technological environment? These questions (and more) are being discussed during a diverse programme on Thursday April 9th.

The symposium RE: Le Poème Électronique takes place in the Klokgebouw at Strijp-S, not even a mile away from the spot where Le Poème Électronique originated. In addition to lectures, discussions, and performances, the documentary ‘Kamer 306’ is shown. Kamer 306 is a documentary about the experimental musical practices in the NatLab during 1956 – 1960. The symposium is part of the regular STRP Expo+, and is meant for students, researchers, artists, technologists, and everyone else interested in this unique work of art.

From 2 – 13 April Eindhoven (the Netherlands) will once again embrace electronic music, interactive installations, film, art performances, live cinema and robotics. The STRP Festival is an all-out experience of music, art and technology. On Thursday, 9 April, STRP is hosting a symposium with lectures, discussions, presentations and works of art about Le Poème Électronique and its significance today.

10th Edition of the ELEKTRA Festival

Arnaud Rebotini // Black Strobe // Ryoji Ikeda // ANTIVJ+Principles of Geometry // Kurt Hentschläger

Ryoichi Kurokawa // Defasten // Otolab

In Montreal, for the 10th Edition of the ELEKTRA Festival

May 1-10

Tickets now on sale!

Montreal, Wednesday, March 11, 2009 — From May 1st to 10, 2009, the 10th Edition of the Elektra international digital arts festival will be held in Montreal. Tickets for this anniversary edition are available on the Admission network (www.admission.com) and at the Usine C ticket office (514-521-4493). The Festival’s team is proud to provide a taste of things to come for this 2009 Edition — which promises to delight both adepts of the digital culture as well as anyone on the lookout for new experiences.

10 years — a milestone worth celebrating. Right? There’s no doubt that’s exactly what the ELEKTRA think tank had in mind when they invited Frenchman Arnaud Rebotini to present the live Canadian premiere of his brand new album, Music Components. Indeed, the Black Strobe producer and singer will be back in Montreal for a live performance he’ll captain with his analog machines. But what can the audience expect? More organic techno that happily leverages dancing pop/rock accents. Set aside your inhibitions, and let Rebotini drive. And on that same special 10th anniversary night, Black Strobe will join in at Elektra to enthral rock lovers and hard core electronic music fans alike.

Saturday, May 9, Usine C – Canadian premiere

Japan’s own Ryoji Ikeda is one of the world’s greatest electronic music artists and composers. Actively present on the Japanese and international scenes since 1995, Ikeda sets the stage with A/V performances that have earned him recognition well beyond the musical realm. And he’ll be in Montreal, ready to thrill eye and ear!

Friday, May 8, Usine C

The ANTIVJ label, alongside Principles of Geometry — a square fave of the popular Tigersushi label — will thread Canadian soil for the first time to introduce Stereoscopic show. Equipped with 3D glasses, the audience will attend a singular performance where live musicians and seasoned VJs will unite to breathe an entirely new dimension into A/V performance.

Saturday, May 9, Usine C – Canadian premiere

Kurt Hentschläger is coming to Montreal for the ultimate presentation of Feed . . . For the sheer joy of those who already know him. But above it all for those who can’t even yet fathom what they’ve missed out on.

Wednesday, May 6, Thursday, May 7, and Friday, May 8, Usine C – Last Montreal show

Ryoichi Kurokawa is the archetype of the A/V artist who knows just how to push the envelope of new technologies to enhance his work. His latest performance coaxes the audience into a journey where minimalism and complexity cohabit flawlessly with A/V sculptures at times exciting and exuberant, at others mind-blowing. Indefinable and an absolute must.

Thursday, May 7, Usine C

Lauded during the 8th Edition of Elektra, Montrealer Defasten will be back for the Canadian premiere of his first feature film, Openland. Focusing on digital animation, Defasten draws parallels inside a bubble of information, space and urban landscapes. In this cinematographic hybrid, Montreal artist Patrick Doan weaves interviews, meta-story, documentary sequences and metaphorical digital landscapes to drive an aesthetic exploration of micro-states.

Thursday, May 7, Usine C – Canadian premiere

Finally, we’d be remiss not to mention the first ever Canadian foray of Italian collective Otolab, with an A/V performance characterized by aesthetic flair, largely inspired from the graphical and architectural universe. Through op7, Otolab develops multiple perspective and trompe-l’œil shifts to prompt the audience to derive new sound and image perceptions. A not-to-be-missed performance for a glimpse of the new digital arts scene emerging in Europe.

Friday, May 8, Usine C

CONSONANCIAS Sesiones de obras audiovisuales ejecutadas en vivo

CCEBA: Viernes 10, 17 y 24 de octubre / 19.00 hs.

PARANÁ 1159

Consonancias es un ciclo de obras audiovisuales en vivo, que surge de una propuesta de creación conjunta entre artistas sonoros y realizadores audiovisuales. Es también el puntapié de un proyecto desarrollado desde la Universidad de Tres de Febrero, Continente -su centro de investigación y difusión de artes audiovisuales-, el Centro de Producción Audiovisual de dicha universidad y varias instituciones culturales como, en este caso, el CCEBA.

Consonancias se presenta en un momento en que es importante preguntarse sobre los alcances de una nueva ola de desarrollos tecnológicos, vinculada al tratamiento en tiempo real de la imagen en movimiento, donde la aparición en el mercado de procesadores de gran velocidad, han propiciado la emergencia abrupta de un terreno de la producción estética que parecía olvidado en el campo del arte: la creación audiovisual en vivo. Si bien, desde antes de la invención del cine, en los últimos años del siglo XIX y sobre todo con la aparición de la imagen electrónica, a mediados del siglo XX podemos encontrar obras que proponían un trabajo conjunto y en vivo de sonido e imagen, es indiscutible que en los últimos años esta tendencia se ha incrementado con peculiar ímpetu. A partir de la década del 90, las pantallas de imagen en movimiento, tanto proyecciones como plasmas de gran tamaño, plagan locales bailables y festivales multitudinarios, fundamentalmente aquellos dedicados a la música electrónica, que, al menos en su origen, apuntaban a un público perteneciente a un estrato social que lo señalaba como interesante consumidor.

Estos nuevos espacios para el video se despliegan como una posibilidad de potenciar la publicidad en juego, verdadera fuente de beneficio en este tipo de eventos (superando el de la venta de entradas y las consumiciones en la barra). Este es el contexto en el que aparece la figura del Vj, juego de palabras que lo relaciona con el Dj, la nueva estrella de la noche. El Vj (video jockey) sería el responsable del „contenido artístico‰ de esas pantallas, al mezclar en vivo imágenes de video que acompañarían las propuestas musicales. A pesar de lo deseado y profetizado por los mismos Vjs, los años pasan y las imágenes en movimiento en los clubs siguen cumpliendo una función lateral, similar a los juegos de iluminación o al humo, al asumir la tarea de generar un contexto propicio para el disfrute de aquello que es el eje de la fiesta: la música. Pero, sin poner en cuestión el espacio y el valor de su activ idad, lo cierto es que la gran popularidad y expansión del oficio de Vj, impulsó el desarrollo de muchas herramientas digitales para la manipulación en vivo de imágenes en video. Estas herramientas generan una apertura para extenderse más allá de las pistas, ya que todo el pesado y costoso equipamiento que antes era necesario para editar y procesar imágenes en vivo, hoy se encuentra resumido a diferentes programas que corren en cualquier computador doméstico. Esto ofrece la posibilidad de que artistas de video y cine puedan acercarse a la experiencia de tocar imágenes, así como un músico ejecuta una pieza, en un terreno donde la relación audio -visual se puede dar de igual a igual y para una audiencia atenta.

En estas presentaciones de Consonancias, que se desarrollan a lo largo de octubre en el CCEBA, se propuso a dos artistas sonoros, Pablo Reche y Luis Marte, trabajar conjuntamente con dos realizadores audiovisuales, Leonello Zambon y Javier Olivera. A ellos se suma TeKhnë, un colectivo audiovisual que desde 2004 desarrolla proyectos de ejecución en vivo, donde se genera un vínculo estrecho entre sonido e imagen.
