Bryan Pardo on Crowdsourcing Audio Production Interfaces

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 08/13/2014 - 05:56
Date:  Mon, 08/25/2014 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm Location:  Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar

Potential users of audio production software, such as audio equalizers, may be discouraged by the complexity of the interface and a lack of clear affordances in typical interfaces. We seek to simplify interfaces for task such as audio production (e.g. mastering a music album with ProTools), audio tools (e.g. equalizers) and related consumer devices (e.g. hearing aids). Our approach is to use an evaluative paradigm (“I like this sound better than that sound”) and the use of descriptive language (e.g. “Make the violin sound ‘warmer.’”). To build interfaces that use descriptive language, a system must be able to tell whether the stated goal is appropriate for the selected tool (e.g.

Enslaved and Ole Hamre at Tall Ships Race 2014 Bergen

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 13:22

The prog black metal band Enslaved and multi-percussionist Ole Hamre has been commissioned to write a new work for The Tall Ships Races 2014 Bergen. They will perform from the front deck of Statsraad Lehmkuhl Saturday evening, and the concert involves the participation of many of the ships at the harbour.

BEK has developed the technology that enables communication between the musicians and the boats.

As Ole Hamre plays the keyboard, an application developed in Max sends OSC messages to a server at BEK. A server-side application, also developed in Max, receives the messages, and updates a number of web pages accordingly. Each of the boats is provided with a link to a web page that provides them with instructions about when to blow the horn.

Time and place:
  • Fisketorget/Statsraad Lehmkuhl, Bergen - 26/07/2014 21:30

Cornelia Glitsch (Foto) og Hans Christian van Nijkerk (Video/Lyd)

Utstilling på BLOKK – 01-03. august 2014.
Åpning: 01. august kl 20:00.

Utstilling på BLOKK – 01-03. august 2014.
Åpning: 01. august kl 20:00.

Utstillingstittelen er et sitat fra Alan Lightmans essay “Prisoners of the Wired World” hvor han reflekterer over hvorfor han ikke lenger sløser med tid. Utstillingen er det første samarbeidet mellom Cornelia Glitsch og Hans Christian van Nijkerk. De oppdaget at enkelte av deres arbeider lå innenfor samme grunntone, estetisk og tematisk. Begge kunstnerne er opptatt av oppmerksomhet og evnen til å finne og dvele ved noe. De liker å ha en nysgjerrig og lyttende tilnærming og ser verdien i å øve seg i tålmodighet og følsomhet. Derfor tiltrekkes de gjerne av situasjoner, ting og steder der det tilsynelatende skjer lite, men der noe allikevel griper dem.

Lydsporet, komponert og spilt inn av Hans Christian, er inspirert av ambient musikksjangeren (jf. Brian Eno, Boards of Canada m.m.). Ambient musikk vektlegger tone og atmosfære fremfor tradisjonell oppbygning eller rytme og er “ment til å gi ro og et rom å tenke i.” (fra heftet til Brian Enos Ambient 1: Music For Airports.)

Cornelia Glitsch (f. 1976) har bachelor fra KHIB og har de siste årene levd av sesongarbeid som kirkegårdsgartner og brukt vintrene til egenstudier og kunstprosess med interesse for blant annet langsomhet. Foto er et av hennes nærmeste uttrykk; det har vært med lenge og er det hun bruker mest kontinuerlig. Andre uttrykk hun har jobbet med er performance, sang, lyd og stedsspesifikke verk.

Hans Christian van Nijkerk (f. 1982) er en norsk/nederlandsk billedkunstner, performer og musiker bosatt i Bergen. Han tok sin bachelor i samtidskunst i Tromsø. Hans Christians primære uttrykk er performance, såvel live som videobasert. Videre jobber han med musikk, lyd, foto, tekst og installasjon. I arbeidene sine utforsker Hans Christian – gjerne med humor – tematikk som publikum, kommunikasjonsteknologi, grådighet, begjær, minner, forgjengelighet og død. Hans siste til dels autobiografiske hovedprosjekt omhandler konkurranse og friidrett.

Han har opptrådd på og stilt ut i bl.a. Silverlens Gallery (Singapore), NNKS (Svolvær), Small Projects (Tromsø), NM i poesislam (Oslo) og Dansens Hus (Oslo).

New prize for internet art: Prix Net Art

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 15:05

Beginning this autumn, Rhizome and Beijing-based TASML and CAT/CCIA will award a substantial new prize for internet art.

The “no strings attached” prize, which will be awarded three times in total in 2014, 2015, and 2016, will recognize the past work and future promise of one artist making outstanding work on the internet. The awardee will receive $10,000; a second distinction award of $5,000 will also be made each year.

To us, the prize feels timely. It celebrates the current moment of internet art and looks ahead to its future. As many artists have won international acclaim for work that tackles technology as subject matter through media forms of long standing—sculpture, installation, and painting—internet art remains less recognized, less supported. This prize gives a boost to those who continue to make art on the internet, and emphasizes the unique cultural importance of such work.

We’re thrilled to work with our partners to acknowledge significant internet artists who continue to be committed to working online, who have inspired us in the past, and whose best work still lies ahead.

Deadline for nominations: August 31, 2014. Please see full information about the prize on http://www.prixnetart.org.
