Live Stage: Subtle Technologies [ca Toronto]

war-mail-2.jpgSubtle Technologies Festival presents An Evening of Networked Performance curated by Willy Le Maitre :: June 12, 2009; 8:00 pm :: Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave., University of Toronto, Toronto.

In this World 2.0, the distant and out of time are those not on the network. Those not connected by the myriad of standards, protocols, interfaces and soft spots are from World 1.0. Seemingly, with more degrees removed from our mutual separation, we are unified by a network that, paradoxically, joins us and separates us. There is a quality of transparency to World 2.0 that make a users criticism difficult to recognize online. Continue reading

Net_Music_Weekly: Breakthrough [de Berlin]

breakthrough01.jpgBreakthrough — an experimental 12 hour event distributed across Berlin locations, inter-network and radio space :: June 27, 2009; 12 noon – midnight.

The term breakthrough describes a sudden shift in understanding or technologies, and, finally, a clearing (Lichtung), an entry into unknown and unmapped territories. An enclosure is breached allowing access to another, totally unforeseen state or space. Communication is thus implied, a new form of exchange, perhaps between two otherwise unconnected domains, between the living and the dead, between many worlds. What does the sheer possibility of a breakthrough imply for communication between the past and the future?

Breakthrough, as event, signals a change in direction, a pointing towards new ways of actively describing and creating the world. Continue reading
