Live Stage: Tyrannies of Participation [tr Istanbul]

kimjohn_image1.png[Conceptual mock-up of Se­cu­rity Gate 26.11 by Molly Reichert] ISEA Istanbul presents Tyrannies of Participation — Chair Per­son: Seeta Peña Gan­gad­ha­ran; Pre­sen­ters: Jon Lei­decker, Joshua Kit Clay­ton, John Kim, An­thony Tran, Vasily Tru­bet­skoy :: Sep­tem­ber 16, 2011; 9:00 am – 10:30 am :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 3, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

The pur­pose is to ex­plore the con­struc­tion and val­u­a­tion of par­tic­i­pa­tory dis­courses, de­signs, or ex­pe­ri­ences and chal­lenge re­ceived wis­dom of par­tic­i­pa­tion’s power. When does the dis­course of par­tic­i­pa­tion mask power? Who has ac­tual ver­sus per­ceived au­thor­ity? How do bot­tom-up, col­lab­o­ra­tive-based, lev­eled so­cial, cul­tural, and po­lit­i­cal ex­per­i­ments cre­ate new in­equal­i­ties?

Work­ing across the arts, music, and pol­i­tics, this panel con­sid­ers the dy­nam­ics of power in me­di­ated par­tic­i­pa­tion. Continue reading

Live Stage: Sound­wwwalk Per­for­mance [tr Istanbul]

garnicnig_soundwwwalks_image_1.jpgISEA Istanbul presents Soundwwwalk Performance Panel: in­ves­ti­ga­tions to­wards an Acoustic Ecol­ogy of Net­works and the world wide web as in­ter­face and ma­te­r­ial for live per­for­mance — Chair Per­son: Bern­hard Gar­nic­nig; Pre­sen­ters: Ceci Moss, Jamie Allen, Peter Moos­gaard, Con­stant Dul­laart, Ju­lian Palacz, Joel Holm­berg, Will Schrimshaw :: Sep­tem­ber 17, 2011; 1:00 – 2:30 pm :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 7, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

Com­puter net­works and cities both are so­cial spaces that have emerged as ma­te­r­ial spaces where lives are lead and work gets done. They are su­per­struc­tures for com­mu­ni­ca­tion, net­works of chan­nels where in­for­ma­tion and goods are trans­ferred. Both spaces have their par­tic­u­lar acoustic prop­er­ties and qual­i­ties, and while ex­ten­sive stud­ies of en­vi­ron­men­tal acoustics and the sound­scape of our en­vi­ron­ment have been emerg­ing in the last 40 years, net­work spaces are still con­sid­ered to be spaces with­out sound, acoustics or any sonic prop­er­ties.

Talman on Nature of the Night Sky

one-star.jpg“There’s a free concert taking place at a forest in Germany, and the headline acts have come from far, far away. NPR guest host Jacki Lyden talks to New York-based artist Jeff Talman about his German sound installation, Nature of the Night Sky. Working with astrophysicist Daniel Huber, Talman used radiation and seismic data from stars and shaped it into music, played back after sundown each night in a Bavarian forest.” (National Public Radio)

The sounds come from the star Procyon in Canis Minor. With the help of astrohysicist Daniel Huber, Talman has transposed the sounds so that we can hear them. The program is available on National Public Radio: hear Talman talk about his Bavarian forest sound installation, and listen to the sounds: here.

You can learn more at Talman’s website.
