Atom – Balloons, Sound + Light

atom-05.jpgAtom by Robert Henke & Christopher Bauder – Performance for a matrix of 64 gas balloons, lights, and sound. A room is filled with deep, evolving noises from a four-channel sound system. An eight-by-eight array of white, self-illuminated spheres floats in space like the atoms of a complex molecule.

Through variable positioning and illumination of each atom, a dynamic display sculpture comes into being, composed of physical objects, patterns of light, and synchronous rhythmic and textural sonic events. Continue reading

Reblogged WiiWiiWiiWii

wii.jpgSometimes a keyboard for control is not enough, you require a tangible interface to communicate with your parameters. Recently the importance of the midi controller with generative systems has been proven, but a new kid on the block is the Wii controller (Wiimote). Designed for gaming but easily hackable to control your favourite software – be it Processing, Max/Msp or VVVV.

Live Stage: Symbiosis Orchestra [it Pescara]

im.jpgSymbiosis Orchestra: 3 + 4, 5 + 4 Live! :: November 9, 2007, 10.30 pm :: Ecoteca, via Caboto n.19, 65126, Pescara, Italy :: (+39) 085 67 341 :: e-mail: info @ ecoteca .org

Created by Andrea Gabriele at the Peam 2005 festival in Pescara, Symbiosis Orchestra is a variable ensemble of classical and electronic instruments that perform a symbiotic combination of music and images. Instruments such as the flute and portable laptop, manipulated voice and electric vibraphone are used in combination with tangible images and abstract chromatic effects projected on an intricate set design. The music is a synthesis of many styles, the result of pieces orchestrated in the studio and on the spot improvisation. The “3+4, 4+5…” live titles comes from the polyrhythmic beats from which the orchestra produces its music. Continue reading

Vague Terrain 09: Rise of the VJ

flash3.jpgVague Terrain 08: Rise of the VJ :: Call for Work – There has been a distinct upswing of activity in the realm of audiovisual culture over the last few years. Specifically, the role of the VJ has become noticeably more prominent in audiovisual collaboration, whether it takes place in galleries, electronic music festivals, nightclubs, noise shows, academic institutions, public intervention art, online, or other places altogether. This growing focus on the live mixed projected image begs the question of the relationships between moving image, sound, body, environment, economics, and technology. Since this field is relatively new, and moving along at such a brisk pace, it is wise and exciting for us to critically consider the role of the VJ in audiovisual culture. For this issue of vague terrain: Rise of the VJ, we are seeking three types of submissions: audiovisual collaborations (in the form of a video to be streamed on the vague terrain site), critical writing, and interviews. Continue reading
