Mobiligence Workshop [it Rome]

Altroequipe presents WORKSHOPMOBILIGENCE :: November 25-27, 2008; 12:45 – 5:45 pm :: Auditorium delle Scuderie Aldobrandini Piazza Marconi 5, Frascati (Rome), Italy :: Deadline: November 15, 2008.

The WORKSHOPMOBILIGENCE is based on the interactive process between choreography / dance, sound, light, architecture, motion capture (VICON Real Time), motion graphics (3D animation with MAYA and LEMUR). The purpose is that of stimulating a formation which is able to react to the continuous mutation of the media project, live show, television, and cinema. The workshop introduces to the use of motion capture as interface able to inform the outside with the inside of the human body and of the performing bodies in general. In this sense we research the increase of the proprioceptive quality of the living body through the coexistence with the 3D mutation of the architecture and performer. Continue reading

Live Stage: Toni Dove: Spectropia [us Troy, NY]

Toni Dove: Spectropia :: November 13, 2008; 8:00 pm :: EMPAC Theater, 110 8th street, EMPAC Building, Troy, New York.

Spectropia is a highly imaginative live-mix cinema event, a “scratchable” movie performed by video DJs playing a movie “instrument”. Toni Dove’s sci-fi hybrid, features time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir in a drama set in England, 2099 and in New York City, 1931, following the Great Crash. Live performers orchestrate onscreen characters through an original mix of film, performance and a unique system of motion sensing that serves as a cinematic instrument, creating a narrative form that is part video game, part feature film, and part VJ mashing. The audience sees through characters’ eyes, hears their interior thoughts, and even talks with characters via Dove and her co-performer, R. Luke DuBois, in a post show Q&A.

An Interview with Paul D. Miller on … Terra Nova

djspooky.jpgAn Interview with Paul D. Miller on his Antarctica film Terra Nova by Elena Glasberg, Adjunct Associate Professor, Princeton University [Terra Nova Sinfonia Antarctica trailer]

Elena Glasberg: When did Antarctica emerge into your world? Do you recall images? Was it fiction? Or, learning of historic exploration figures?

Paul D. Miller: I guess some of my most formative film experiences come from early cinema pieces like the two films Melies’s 1902 The Conquest of the North and the false history of Frederick A. Cook’s 1912 The Truth About the Pole I used to watch old films whenever I could, so I’d catch this kind of strange dualism. Like the Lumiere brothers, Cook’s film tried to portray itself as a realistic almost documentary kind of scenario. Continue reading

Reblogged The People Formerly Known as the Employers


In 2006, NYU professor Jay Rosen penned an astute observation about the changing power relationships in the media industries – and more specifically, the world of journalism – regarding the impact of internet. His analysis had the catchy title “The People Formerly Known as the Audience”, and pointed towards a shift in access to reporting tools (news gathering, editing, and publishing) to what used to be imagined by newsworkers as the audience. Importantly, it is not just the tools of reporting now being available to “We the Media” (such as blogging, podcasting, vodcasting, and other forms of social or “our” media), but also emerging forms of legal protection (Creative Commons licensing), and increasing uses of users by professional media organizations, thereby giving the former audience the semi-official status as competitor-colleagues.
