Artist presentation by Maria Øy Lojo: A Temporary Meeting (work in progress)

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 12:13

This week Maria Øy Lojo has been working in BEK’s project space with her project A Temporary Meeting. She has processed recorded material from the metro in Berlin, amongst others, into what is going to be a site specific and interactive video installation.

We are delighted that Maria will present her work in progress here at BEK. Her work can be viewed between 15.00 and 18.00 – come see it, have a drink and a chat!

“Larger transport stations always strike me as fascinating; A constant movement in several, determined directions. If enough people are in gathered movement, it can sometimes look as if they´re almost digging out the tunnels they´re moving through. Metro sounds is also something I’m drawn to; A means of transport that by audio gives a clear expression of its mechanical construction, and the sound of people with a flow coinciding their own transfer through the spaces.

You don’t rest here. At the same time, there’s not much else to do while waiting for the next train. A waiting room in motion. Some arrive, some leave. You move here to move faster."

Maria Øy Lojo is a Bergen-based artist working primarily with video as medium. Her education is from Bergen Academy of Art and Glasgow School of Art with background in classical sculpture and drawing, cinematic grammar, performance, contemporary dance and choreography.

Her research concentrates much around science, silent knowledge and the human body, such as biologically inherited and culturally determined movement.

Øy Lojo works with space as perceptual building sites by creating small relocations. She does this through a visual choreography, often in parts of the room that are challenging or impossible to physically approach and reside in. The videos tends to use manipulated elements from the space being projected upon and the artist lets the projection and the space approach a near super-composing state, often with hyper-aesthetics in focus. She seeks to make the works as extensions of their designated spaces, or let spaces tell stories of other spaces, always aiming to give the site new dimensions of space, time and presence.

Workshop: Digital embroidery

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 11:24

In this one-day workshop, you will make creations in the unique environment of the Commodore 64 and translate these shapes and forms into physical objects.

The workshop is led by artist Raquel Meyers, and is a collaboration between Bergen Public Library and BEK.

In the workshop we will be using the classic game console Commodore 64 to create patterns, animations and illustrations. We will use classic embroidery as a starting point for making creative, digital animations and vice versa, using grid based animation, where each pixel can be translated to a needlepoint.

Raquel will show how these shapes and illustrations can be made by using the unique technique and functionality of the Commodore 64. With a limited and abstract set of colours and shapes, these illustrations can be translated to physical materials such as embroidery and rubber stamps. Due to the unique grid system used in the Commodore 64 to create patterns and shapes, it is translatable to the classic cross stitching craft. Raquel will show examples, and participants will get a chance to both make creations in the unique environment of the Commodore 64, and to translate these shapes and forms to physical objects.

The Commodore 64, also known as the C64, is an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982, that was widely popular as one of the first game consoles. Using the Commodore 64 screen as a canvas, a rectilinear grid where one keystroke at a time is used to build character-by-character imagery, the imagery comes to life as a combination of shapes in limited colours, characters and letters from the alphabet, numbers, punctuation marks and special symbols.

Raquel Meyers is Spanish artist based in Sweden, who defines her practice as Keyboardslöjd (Drawing & Crafting by Type). She utilizes the Classic C64 game console to create animations, teletext pages and cross stitch pieces.

Participants can bring their own laptop to install the needed software we will be using.

Material costs: 250,-

Saturday May 6th: 10:00 – 16:00

Andrew Schloss - A history of the radiodrum and robotics in musical performance: The art installation as a musical instrument

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 04/17/2017 - 03:01
Date:  Wed, 05/03/2017 - 5:30pm - 6:30pm Location:  CCRMA classroom Event Type:  Colloquium  Abstract: Originally created at Bell Labs in the 1980’s by Bob Boie and Max Mathews, the radio baton, radio drum, or radiodrum has gone through many iterations, including two new ones that I have been working on recently; both are currently “one-of-a-kind.” I will demonstrate an entirely analog version of the instrument created by Bob Boie, and a new SDR (software defined radio) version that is in the process of being tested. Both of these instruments differ from Max’s versions, in that they are designed to be more of a 3D percussion instrument than a conducting device. FREE Open to the Public

Heather Bortfield (UC Merced) on Perceptual learning in support of language: Insights from infants and cochlear implantees

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/13/2017 - 03:29
Date:  Fri, 05/26/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Heather Bortfeld from UC Merced will be here to talk about Perceptual learning in support of language: Insights from infants and cochlear implantees

What does the brain know about sound when you are born deaf? There are well-established devices such as cochlear implants to give people the sensation of sound when their inner ear isn’t working. These devices work best when they are applied early. But what abilities are we born with, and how do we understand what these children are hearing, before they have language, or much of a behavioral system.

Lee Miller (UCDavis) - Hearing Loss and Neurotechnology: New Approaches to Improve Speech Perception

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/13/2017 - 01:42
Date:  Fri, 05/12/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Without a doubt, the holy grail of hearing research is helping people (and machines) navigate our noisy world. We still don’t have a good model of how we separate the sounds around us, so we can attend to the signal with the highest value. And it’s even harder to build tools that help us diagnose problems and to help people who have hearing disabilities.
