"Musical Vocabulary Analysis and Global Structure Planning Based on Integer Programming" - mercredi 14 janvier, 12h

Tsubasa Tanaka de l'équipe Représentations Musicales présente : "Musical Vocabulary Analysis and Global Structure Planning Based on Integer Programming".

Résumé (en anglais)

In the study of algorithmic music composition, an important problem is how to combine localized musical vocabularies to construct appealing global structures of the generated pieces. Integer programming, which is a method of solving large discrete optimization problem, may play an important role in achieving that purpose because it may allow us to analyze existing pieces and to plan the structures of the generated pieces from a global point of view. In this presentation, Tsubasa Tanaka, a postdoctoral researcher on the music representations team, will introduce his ongoing studies, which formulate the problem of motif analysis and that of planning the relationships between musical vocabularies and global structures as integer programming problems.

Vestnorsk Tekstilkunst Tiltak for Krisehåndtering (VTTfK)

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Tue, 01/06/2015 - 01:22

Margrethe Brekke deltar på Vestlandsutstillingen 2015 med en tekstilinstallasjon av silkebannere samt videoen Håpet om Krisehåndtering, hvor en vestnorsk tekstilkunstner (tolket av Anne Marthe Dyvi) grubler over frykt, skyld og grunnlovens miljøparagraf §112, samt den vestnorske tekstilkunstens mulighet for håndtering av større og mindre kriser.

Videoens lydbilde blir preget av Maja Elliott’s komposisjoner for klavèr, og de karakteristiske interiørene i Kalfarlien 18 vil fungere som kulisser.

BEK har bistått med kamera- og opptaksutstyr.

Finnisage - If on a winter’s night, a room

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Mon, 01/05/2015 - 19:26

We warmly invite you to the last day of this event. This Sunday (not Saturday!). It will be the first dry and even a bit sunny day in Bergen. We will screen all seven works starting at 5pm. There will be free wine, coffee and snacks. At 6pm there will a live reading accompanying Robyn Nesbitt’s video work. Come out, have a drink with us and give some support to the artists!

If on a winter’s night, a room is a public video screening program held over seven nights in the heart of winter. It features a series of seven short and silent video works by seven young norwegian and international artists – one artist video per night.

10 Jan. Opening Night @ 20:00While the subject matter ranges from natural phenomena to fictionalised objects to performative video, the works share a certain slowness and subtlety that requires a patient contemplative approach.

The works function as luminous backgrounds, with a slow and creeping build-up. They are subtly surreal, which engenders a shift in how one observes the real surrounding and the depicted space of the video. The eeriness and lightness of the video works encourage a folding back upon ourselves, and a folding back upon our own way of ‘looking’, offering conditions for interiorising subjective spaces into a ‘room of one’s own’.

10 Jan. Opening Night @ 20:00
All videos will be screened

" Des mots et des sons pour communiquer lors d'un projet de design sonore " - mercredi 7 janvier, 12h.

Maxime Carron, Nicolas Misdariis et Patrick Susini, de l'équipe Perception et design sonore présentent : « Des mots et des sons pour communiquer lors d'un projet de design sonore ».  


Le besoin de communiquer autour des sons ou de la musique est de plus en plus fort. Aujourd'hui, de nombreux industriels font appel à des designers sonores, des compositeurs ou des acousticiens pour travailler sur leur univers sonore : identité de marque, habillage musical, acoustique des lieux et espaces ou design sonore des produits... Les différents acteurs de ces projets sont alors amenés à interagir et à discuter du son « désiré », ce qui pose bien souvent problème : comment spécifier à un expert du son l'intention désirée ? Comment présenter et justifier au demandeur non-expert ses différentes idées ? Le manque d'un vocabulaire commun et consensuel entre les deux mondes a été mis en évidence, et identifié comme étant un frein au processus de design sonore.

Nos travaux, réalisés en partenariat avec la SNCF dans le cadre de ses recherches sur l'identité sonore, visent à proposer un outils de communication interactif basé sur un ensemble de descripteurs verbaux non-techniques. Nous proposons ainsi un lexique composé de 35 concepts sonores accompagnés chacun :

  • d'une définition brève
  • d'un exemple sonore interactif permettant de bien comprendre le concept présenté
  • d'une série d'exemples concrets permettant de contextualiser le concept.

Diriez vous qu'un son est chaud ? Ascendant et discontinu ? Qu'est-ce qu'un son nasal ? Peut-être avez-vous déjà vos propres idées sur ces concepts sonores... ou pas. Dans les deux cas, venez au séminaire pour les écouter et en discutez avec nous.

  • Date : mercredi 7 janvier à 12h
  • Lieu : Ircam, salle Igor-Stravinsky
