Machine Libertine

Machine Libertine is a newly created media poetry group.

The method of our work is the exploration of the role of media in the development of literary art practices including poetry film, text generators and performance art. The main principles of the group are formulated in Machine Poetry Manifesto and agree with two of Eugenio Tisselli’s manifestos about machine poetry — manifesto for the destruction of poets and Text Jockey — in pointing out the idea of liberation of the machines from the routine tasks and increasing the intensity of their use for creative and educational practices.

Machine Libertine had been founded in December 2010 starting with a poetry film called Snow Queen: Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: You Don’t Know Me

Turbulence Commission: You Don’t Know Me by Liangjie Xia [Needs Software Download]:

You are not always who other people think you are; you even hear your own voice in a different way.

This is a unique task that nobody else in the world can do. You Don’t Know Me provides a toolset and an online voice gallery. We are looking forward to hearing your true voice.

You Don’t Know Me is a 2010 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence web site. It was supported by the Jerome Foundation. Continue reading

“Afflator” by Nick Knouf

Afflator — by Nick Knouf — breathes upon the conditions of today’s robotic creatures that are pulled into the muck of mimesis. To have a robot that is spoken to in natural language, that walks in a bipedal fashion, is the research that is valorised. Afflator deforms these conditions to suggest that the robotic form does not need to resemble anything we have seen before, that the means of engagement with a robot can be something other than traditional language and movement. Draping from the gallery ceiling and extending along the floor in a wave of fabric, Afflator unfolds onto contemporary robotics research to suggest other ethico-political options for engagement with the robotic other.

Extending from Afflator is a tube with an attached mask, worn by the gallery visitor to create a machinic assemblage of human and creature. Continue reading

Susan Philipsz: Surround Me [uk London]

An Artangel Commission — Susan Philipsz: Surround Me, a Song Cycle for the City of London :: October 9, 2010 – January 2, 2011 (Saturdays and Sundays only) 10:00 am – 5:00 pm :: Various locations through the City of London.

Every day of the working week, the City of London is alive to the sounds of trade, commerce and traffic. At the weekends, quiet descends on the offices, squares and streets of the City, broken only by the occasional sound of cars and the pealing of church bells.

The silence of the City has inspired Surround Me, 2010 Turner Prize nominee Susan Philipsz’s first commission in London, a constellation of sound installations in different spaces within the Square Mile. Philipsz’s haunting voice resonates through the hushed streets, across Modernist high-walks and tucked-away medieval alleyways, and along the banks of the River Thames… Continue reading

“Iterating My Way Into Oblivion” by Carlo Zanni

[-empyre-] Journal of Journal Performance Studies

Nicholas Knouf wrote: Dear -empyre-,

I don’t want to derail the very interesting present discussion on labour and alienation, but I wanted to announce a new project that, coincidently, has a bearing on the conversation this month. The project, Journal of Journal Performance Studies (JJPS), is a series of three interrelated works that engage with academic publishing, consisting of a Firefox extension, an online radio station, and a journal. The project itself can be found at

JJPS started as a result of my own disgust over the absurd prices for academic journals. Continue reading

Ocean Voices: Call for Participation

Ocean Voices by Halsey Burgund with Wallace J. Nichols: “I am using the website to not only collect voices of people from around the world talking about their experiences with the ocean, but also to create dynamic audio collages combining these voices with instrumental music. But I need many many more voices from all sorts of people from all around the planet, so please check it out, speak your mind, and share it with your friends!

The second part of Ocean Voices will be a performance taking place at the California Academy of Sciences in June, 2010 to celebrate World Ocean Month as well as the 100th anniversary of Jacques Cousteau’s birth. Several of Jacques’ grandchildren will be in attendance and we’re hoping that this combination of conservation and art/music will help open people’s eyes to the importance of the oceans to the overall health of life on this planet.”

Live Stage: Lozano-Hemmer @ Guggenheim [us NYC]

Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Levels of Nothingness — a performance-installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, featuring Isabella Rossellini :: September 17, 19, 20, 21, 2009; 7:30 pm :: Peter B. Lewis Theater, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Levels of Nothingness, co-written by philosopher Brian Massumi, is inspired by Vasily Kandinsky’s explorations of synaesthesia, most notably in his Yellow Sound (1912), a composition in which he proposes linking the senses using levels of abstraction. Lozano-Hemmer employs a computerized microphone to analyze live voice in real time and extract physical and linguistic data that, in turn, controls a full rig of rock-and-roll concert lights, creating a color show that surrounds the theater.
