The Whistling Project by Susi Law

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 06/06/2014 - 11:53

Isn’t it a non-gender specific voice, unconscious sound we make/ heard, signal tunes, a universal language when relaxed/ nervous, a forbidden gesture, a skill that parents taught, and a little gust of wind going through our lips?

The Whistling Project is a performative research initiated by Susi Law from last fall, she interviewed whistlers she came across and collected whistling sound in different cities in Germany, Switzerland, France and Norway. By invitation from curator Gitte Sætre, the project is now stationed at Alvøen (one of the oldest industrial communities which became one of the finest residential areas) with interactions between the local residents and the nature by private/ public whistling moments.

The project Whistle for Alvøen begins at Alvøen Culture Day* and will last for the whole month in June. Artist/ Active Listener Susi Law will be setting up a few whistling stations in Alvøen, and collect stories and whistling tunes in the air. The selected research materials will be shown in the end of June.

Susi Law, independent artist and active listener. She focuses on capturing, translating, articulating and circulating sensitivity. She graduated from Academy of Visual Arts in Hong Kong and Bergen Academy of Art and Design, and have been working on curatorial affairs in sound art.

BEK supported the project with equipment and working space.

As a continuation of the workshops , "The Sound of Cultures" , the artist Xavier Bonfill will present his project idRadio during the next edition of the Sonar festival. This project works with the sounds that have been obtained as a result of the workshops carried out by young people from different cultural origins at schools and associations of Barcelona, in which the cultural identity is explored.

The project idRadio is an interactive radio based on a website application. With the sounds recorded during the workshops and shared in the Freesound.org website, the composer pose an interactive way of listening and manipulate them. This allows the listeners to discover the different cultural identities that make up the scenery of the city. 

The people who will attend the Sonar festival will be able to experience with this first version of the application at the “MTG & friends”  stand from the 12th to the 14th of June 2014 from 12:00 am to 8:00 pm.

This revolutionary product was the world's first polyphonic and programmable synth, and set the standard for all synth designs that have followed.

Barcelona Laptop Orchestra - The Hub Machine

Phonos project - UPF - Thu, 05/29/2014 - 15:14
Series: Thursday, 2014, June 5 - 19:30 Barcelona Laptop Orchestra - The Hub Machine   05.06.2014 - 19.30h

Sala Polivalent UPF Poblenou
C/ Roc Boronat 138
Barcelona
Free admission

 

The Hub Machine:

The Barcelona Laptop Orchestra proposes an uninterrupted exploratory session of HUB, our collective algorithmic machine. Created as a tribute to the work of pioneers such as The League of Automatic Music Composers and later The Hub, this environment allows to create modular networks of algorithmic processing of self-sustained timbre and musical structures.

A new feature in this session is that each member of the orchestra has developed the own software, that is embedded in the collective network sending and receiving data and sonifying the own activity with analog synthesizers or analog synth emulations, obtaining a characteristic vintage sound.

The result is a chamber ensemble that can fluctuate between highly decoupled free improvisations and narrow interactions that generate coherent and synchronized behaviors among the performers.

So we invite you to enjoy an experience of pure Music Network!

 

Barcelona Laptop Orchestra:   Directors: Àlex Barrachina Josep M Comajuncosas   Performers: Eduard Frigola Enric Guaus Roger Pibernat Víctor Sanahuja Luis Vélez
