3482419745_cfc870640a.jpgBALTAN Goes NATLAB: Audiovisual Spaces with HC Gilje and Lorenzo Brusci :: May 29, 2009 :: 4:30 – 6:30 pm :: Auditorium of the former Philips NatLab, entrance on the Kastanjelaan, Strijp S in Eindhoven.

Curated and moderated by Telcosystems, the focus of this session will be on different strategies of spatialisation in audiovisual art and how this alters our understanding of technology-driven forms of art.

Norwegian artist HC Gilje explores how audiovisual technology can be used to transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret physical spaces. He will present the research he has been doing over the last three years during his research fellowship at the National Academy of the Arts in Bergen (KHIB). HC Gilje writes regularly on these matters on his blog ‘Conversations with Spaces’. Continue reading

Transitio_MX 03 Competition [mx Coyoacán]

transitio.jpgTransitio_MX 03: International Media Art and Video Festival :: Centro Nacional de las Artes, Centro Multimedia, Avenida Río Churubusco 79, Colonia Country Club, C. P. 04220, Coyoacán, México, D. F. :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: June 19, 2009.

“The third edition of the Electronic Art and Video Festival, Transitio_MX 03 attempts to acknowledge differences in a transparent and straightforward context. We aim to offer an event that is representative of current trends in new media art and video, and to show how artists use that technology in their creative pursuits.

While global space eliminates the geographical locations wherein these proposals take place by homogenizing them; technological appropriation is seen as a disagreement, and as such, artistic practices emerge as autonomous. Continue reading

Novi_sad North American Tour

noramtour_2009.jpgNovi_sad’s North American TourNovi_sad (Thanasis Kaproulias, b. 1980) graduated from the Economic University of Piraues. He lives and works in Athens, Greece. Influenced by the pioneers of audio assault, he began generating sounds in 2005. Amplified environmental recordings, drone manipulations, structured ambient soundscapes, microtones vs overtones, all come together in a hyper structure of iconoclastic form.

Novi_sad’s artistic output displays a high level of technical ability, as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of location. The strength of his soundscapes works in the same elaborateness for the whole creation process, starting from a basis of very strong conceptualism, the intense examination of field recordings over the actual composition work, to the point of performing back the result onto location. Every sound that occurs is treated with a sculptural integrity and his sonic power operates on a level in which the audience participates as transcendental listeners. Continue reading

The sampler follows both sound and meaning criteria in sorting, organizing and processing samples and formulating utterances. Continue reading
