Cyborgorganism – Open Cities [br Sao Paulo]

scie.jpgA10LAB & SCIE PROTOCOL are invited to the MobilFest III – Conference on Cyborgorganism – Open CitiesElectromagnetic Spectrum Research performance by THE NOISER :: November 14-17, 2008 :: Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“The Farther we emerge from the inner city, the more political the atmosphere becomes. We reach the docks, the inland harbors, the warehouses, the poor neighborhoods, the scattered refuges of wretchedness: the outskirts. Outskirts are the state of emergency of a city, the terrain on which incessantly rages the great decisive battle between town and country. It is nowhere more bitter between Marseilles and the provençal landscape. It is the hand-to-hand fight telegraph poles against agaves, barbed wire against thorny palms, the miasmas of stinking corridors against the damp gloom under the plane trees in brooding squares, short-winded outside staircases against the mighty hills.

Net_Music_Weekly: “Rehearsal 2008” by Liliana Porter

porter.jpgDia Art Foundation presents Rehearsal 2008 by Liliana Porter: From the press release: “Drawing from an extensive collection of figurines, knickknacks and toys … Porter presents a cast of toy chicks singing “La donna è mobile” (Woman is fickle) from Giuseppe Verdi’s 1851 opera Rigoletto. The chicks begin in chorus, but viewers can cut to “solos” by clicking any of the individual chicks, and then return to the chorus where they left off. Each chick’s audio track of the song is a unique interpretation, ranging from Tango to a panhellenic guitar version to a 1907 rendition by Enrico Caruso. The soundtrack is by Sylvia Meyer, with whom Porter has collaborated on her video projects. Continue reading

Live Stage: Kenji Kojima’s Subway Synesthesia [us NYC]

nys020102-1.jpgSubway Synesthesia by Kenji Kojima — the first exhibition in AC [Direct]’s Unearthed series :: November 6 – December 13, 2008 :: Opening: November 6, 2008; 6 – 8:00 pm :: AC [ Direct ], 547 W. 27th St, #519, New York City.

Since 1990, Japanese artist Kojima has been experimenting with the relationships between perception and cognition, mathematics, technology, music and art. Kojima’s series of photographs, New York City Subway, are presented as diptychs that become the material for his moving image and sound installations. These photographs, along with simple text overlays, act as a sort of eye-to-mind primer that are then dissolved into hundreds of pixels of flowing color and sound. Through RGB Music, these digital photographs are further reduced to their color pixels that are then transformed into a series of musical compositions.
