The exhibition “Ultimo Scenario” at the old Children’s Clinic at Haukeland University Hospital, exhibits works by 15 artists which in their practices are concerned with situations and site specificity.

The exhibition is curated by Elias Björn, Gard Andreas Frantzsen and Jane Sverdrupsen. Coordinator of the exhibition is Daniela Ramos Arias.

“Ultimo Scenario” shows works by 15 artists who have been chosen specifically for their ability and interest in working with site-specific projects. The artists have been invited to shed light on aspects of the Children Clinic’s history and its role in society over the 66 years it has existed. The clinic provides in an artistic sense an interesting context that the artists have been encouraged to explore according to their own interests and practices. In order to By emphasizing diversity in the selection process the curators have chosen artists that employ a wide range of methodologies and thematic approaches in their practices.

Topics the artists explore span from the building’s architectural history to personal experiences as next of kin at the clinic. Several artists have appropriated found materials on the premises that was deemed useless by the hospital as the clinic closed down, others again make use of sound and images connected to the site.

The exhibition provides a last opportunity to experience to the building that has had its lifespan in a period that coincides with what has been deemed as Norway’s golden age, from the postwar period to the present day.

Gisle Martens Meyer: There is no Here, Here

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 02/16/2017 - 11:08

Facing us on stage: a musician. He plays electronica. Works his machines like a hacker. But we can see him much better on screen. There, reality is different, and constantly changing.

The performance is co-produced by BEK, with BIT Teatergarasjen. A version was also shown at Oktoberdans 2016.

Behind the controls he directs his own live screen life. We see him there on stage, and we see him on film, in social media, in video games, on digital screens in the screen, in selfies, on Instagram, on posters, in commercials, in dating apps… Where we really are and what we see, soon becomes a big question. Where does this performance take place?

“There is no Here, Here” is based on William Gibson’s books, the science fiction author who invented the word cyberspace, and his bleak visions of lonely hackers battling digital reality. This is no longer fiction, no longer future. Today we all live in these fragmented realities. The devices control us, digital profiles socialize for us, algorithms choose for us – the Internet of things connects us to an increasing extent, the Net is always with us, and we, we are no longer really here.

Find more info and tickets at BIT Teatergarasjen

After the performance there will be post performance rave with Anders G February 24th and Marikie February 25th!

Time and place:
  • Østre - 24/02/2017 to 25/02/2017

Romper el Silencio

Phonos project - UPF - Wed, 02/15/2017 - 13:02
Series: Thursday, 2017, February 23 - 19:30

Sala Polivalent, UPF Poblenou
C/ Roc Boronat 138
Barcelona Free entrance

 

‘Romper el Silencio’ (Break the Silence) is a concert-environment, or songscape, that proposes a fluidity between personal expression and its outside. For this version it invites to walk along the room, to listen from different positions, to seat on the floor, etc. During the presentation you can enter or leave the room at any point.

 

 

This work arose from a real-time interaction between songs and soundscapes in Chile’s V Region. It consists of a multi-speaker sound environment, video projections, voice and a piano-ear in which underwater recordings, conversations with fishermen, fragments of songs and autonomous computer processes create t between a creation of personal expression and a listening to an environment outside of it.

By personal expression we can understand those sounds that ‘I’ want. The noise I intentionally produce, listen, imagine. Its outside is every noise to this ‘I’. The limit between the one and the the other is traced in a horizon of silence. This silence only exists as that which we silence to listen to certain noises.

'Romper el Silencio' és un concert-ambient, o songscape, que proposa una fluïdesa entre expressió personal i la seva part exterior. Aquesta versió convida a recórrer la sala, a escoltar des de diferents posicions, a seure a terra, etc. Durant la presentació es podrà entrar i sortir en qualsevol moment.

 

 

Aquesta obra neix d'una interacció en temps real realitzada entre cançons i paisatges sonors a la V regió de Xile. Es compon d'un paisatge sonor multi-parlant, projeccions de vídeo, veu i un piano-orella en el qual gravacions submarines, converses amb pescadors, fragments de cançons i processos computacionals autònoms creen un espai fluid de rumors, ressonància i vacil·lació entre crear una expressió personal i escoltar un ambient extern a ella.

Quan parlem d'expressió personal podem entendre aquells sons que 'jo' vull. El soroll que jo produeixo, escolto o imagino de manera intencional. La seva part exterior seria tot soroll a aquest 'jo'. El límit entre l'un i l'altre es traça en un horitzó de silenci. Aquest silenci només existeix com allò que silenciem per escoltar certs sorolls.

Augmented Reality Headphone Reverberation

CCRMA-Stanford University - Tue, 02/14/2017 - 07:17
Date:  Tue, 02/21/2017 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm Event Type:  DSP Seminar Abstract: In audio-visual augmented or mixed reality applications, computer-generated audio objects are rendered via acoustically transparent earphones to blend with the physical environment heard naturally by the viewer/listener. This requires binaural artificial reverberation processing to match local environment acoustics, so that synthetic audio objects are not readily discriminable from sounds occurring naturally or reproduced over loudspeakers. Approaches involving the measurement or calculation of binaural room impulse responses in consumer environments are limited by practical obstacles and complexity. FREE Open to the Public
